Oh my! You don’t get blush as pretty as this very often; it’s one of the loveliest textures I’ve come across in a long while. It’s part of the By Terry Cellularose range that includes rose native cells (also in Lancome Absolut Extrait at a cool £250 per pot); hot new-ish ingredient of rose cells that can multiply themselves but are notoriously hard to harvest. The claim on these is that they’re able to stimulate human dermal cells, which if that’s the case, could have an effect on the look and feel of the skin.
So, the shade that I’ve tested is Flower Sorbet that looks almost neon in the pot but is the best apricot shade ever – so, so sheer making it perfect for sun-kissed cheeks that just need a tiny nuance of colour.
It’s a shame that the way it settled in the pot meant that it created that hole in the product but I’ve been playing with this blush all day and just love it. It’s scented (beautifully) with rose and you definitely get a glowy sheen with it. You can build it to a certain extent but the purpose of this is to be barely-there so if you like a more intense look, this isn’t for you. Texture-wise, it’s not quite gel and not quite creme – a strange hybrid of the two that feels cooling on the skin.
I’ve kept it more intense for swatching purposes, but ideally you’d blend in a little more than I have here. The Cellularose Collection is quite extensive so I won’t do everything in one go, but as well as the Blush Glaces, there are CC Serums in four shades, SOS Balm and three lip colours ahead. The blush also comes in two gorgeous pink shades, one pale and another bright.
Not clear on launch date, or cost, but I can guarantee that it will have luxury price tags!
