By Terry is a wonderful product developed by Terry Gunzburg. I have quite a few products from her line and really enjoy using all of them. They are on the expensive side, but you get what you pay for – quality in products that really deliver. I bought the aqualip as I was on a mission for true “stain” for the lips. It was part of their Aquachic collection and it came in only one colour- Dancefloor Flirt.
It is described as a “temporary tatoo” delivered in a water-gel formula. It is infused with botanical glycerin which boosts hydration.
The product in the tube looks frightfully orange, but once applied with the doe-foot applicator the colour is a definite hot pink. The texture is waterlike and immediatly adheres to the lips. This is a perfect stain. The product dries down to a strong yet wearable pink. This product is perfect for hot weather as it does not budge. I must advise that lips should be prepped beforehand. Use a good lip exfoliater (I recommend Sara Happ Lip Scrub reviewed here.) About 20min prior to application use a regular lipbalm like Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy. This will hopefully ensure smooth application with no patchy area’s. The Jelly Tint can be applied once for a sheer look or multiple time for a bright pop of pink. My only request is that By Terry keeps this limited product in their regular lineup and introduces new colours.
This product is still available at some stores.

My lips were still supple and I felt no dryness. I also wore it topped with Burberry Lip Mist in Field Rose which was a perfect combination. This innovative productive gives a modern fresh look. I have lots of other By Terry products that I will review soon.
