By Terry Or De Rose Baume Precieux

Please feel free to correct me, if I am wrong but... I think I am about to review the most expensive lip balm in the world. The limited edition By Terry Or De Rose Baume Precieux retails at £46.00, but I managed to get my mitts on this gorgeous little pot with a 50% discount in the Space NK sale :) The most important question - Is it worth the hefty price tag?

First of all, the packaging feels very luxurious and I adore the rose gold lid. As soon as you open the pot, you can see the micro flecks of 24-karat pink/rose gold glistening and you simply fall in love :) It also smells very nice, but if you are not a fan of rose scents, you might dislike it. It isn't an overpowering rose fragrance and I find it very pleasant, unlike the Balance Me Rose Otto Lip Salve, which is far too strong in my opinion.

The balm itself has a super soft, buttery consistency and melts with the warmth of your fingers. One gentle touch is enough to pick up the right amount of product and as soon as I apply it onto my lips, they feel nourished, soothed and super soft. The rose gold shimmer makes it pretty enough to wear alone instead of a lipstick, or you can layer it on top of your favourite lip colour for added sparkle. You don't have top worry about stickiness or a gritty texture of glitter, because the formula is perfectly smooth and feels amazing on the lips.

This luxurious lip salve features a rejuvenating and lipo-regenerating complex made of rose flower essential wax to soften and tone, pastel oil to boost cell renewal, shea butter to soothe, ceramides to plump and firm and vitamin E to protect from the sun, wind and ageing. 

Or De Rose Precieux is a limited edition version of the Baume De Rose (£35.00), with added 24-karat rose gold sparkle and to be perfectly honest, I was only drawn to it because of the sparkle :) I am not too fussed about the original and I won't by buying it in the future, but the limited edition stole my heart and I really enjoy using it.

Was it worth £23.00? YES, definitely. Would I pay £46.00 for it? I am not sure. It seems a bit crazy :)

  1. There is nothing better than a little bit of luxury. This lip balm sounds like a girls best friend. A little bit of glam, shimmer & hydration to keep those lips in tip top condition. I am swooning over this.

  2. I think I would buy both full price just as a little treat to myself. This looks super cute on your lips with all the glitter flecks. Aww your photos have really sold it to me! So pretty, amazing bargain.

  11. wow gold in lip balm. that is pretty intense. I heard the original formula is ver similar to dior's balm

  12. The price is a little insane but I had no idea until now that it had 24ct flecks in! It looks so pretty! I'd love to try this, but I think that I'd feel a little sick paying out so much for a lip balm! ;)

  13. This is so luxurious and the full price would have put me off, but £23 for something gorgeous and sparkly that will last you a year? You totally made the right choice haha Wish I could have got my hands on one! (I'm a sucker for pretty lip products and this is honestly the prettiest thing I've seen in ages, it looks gorgeous on your lips) xx

  15. This looks so beautiful!!!! If I wasn't on a spending ban, I'd buy it!!!
