|Swatches Top-Bottom: Bubble Glow, Nude Milky Way|
As soon as I'd heard about the new By Terry Ombre Blackstar shades for the Spring 2016 collection, I was instantly all over it. I already own Misty Rock and Frozen Quartz and had been super impressed with the formula as they have amazing pigmentation and last forever, even without primer.
The new colours are me all over, a candy pink shade and a creamy nude. Although I couldn't find a single thing about them online, no reviews, swatches or even any press articles, I blind bought and splurged on them anyway (with the help of £15 worth of Space NK points), and hoped I would love them as much as my previous two.
Bubble Glow is a pretty bubblegum pink shade with a rosy undertone and it contains fine pink glitter. Nude Milky Way is a nude cream colour which has a golden shimmer running through it. Both are beautiful shades but the shimmer in them is a little understated, especially when compared to Misty Rock and Frozen Quartz which are both packed full of twinkly prettiness. It's good though if you don't like anything too over the top or metallic looking.
The thing that totally let me down was the application. Now I'm not knocking Bubble Glow which is lovely and it applies pigmented and is easy to blend out. But Nude Milky Way is pretty damn terrible. It just applies a patchy mess, which is something I noticed from the very first swatch and I tried my best in the swatch photo to make it look somewhat presentable. I hoped that it would be okay once I'd used it properly, but it just applies patchy and blending it out just moves the product about and inevitably makes it look worse. I did try to take it back as the Ombre Blackstars aren't exactly purse friendly and I was pretty disappointed with the formula of it, especially compared to that of the others I own. Unfortunately there was nothing they could do.
If you're thinking about splurging on these new shades then I'd definitely say to go for Bubble Glow and take a miss on Nude Milky Way!
