Eye Shadow -By Terry -Ombre Blackstar in #15 Ombre Mercure

on 4/21/2018 8:48:00 PM

I honestly don't get the very high ratings for this. I've been on an eye color stick craze and tried most of the big names. I really like the Mercier and Bobbi Brown sticks but I thought the ones by By Terry were the BEST (with the price tag to prove it) so I bought this one from Nordstrom. It is a lovely color and very creamy; it also blends out very well. BUT, the color is VERY shimmery, like right on the verge of GLITTERY if you know what I mean. I don't think it would work for anyone except the very young. And then, it creased on me! After about 4 hours. My Mercier and Bobbi Brown sticks never did. I think these sticks were probably the best before other lines raised their games and put out a superior product. I would definitely not recommend this but do recommend Mercier, BB, and also the Julep eye color sticks.

Scrubs -By Terry -Cellularose Dual Exfoliation Scrub

I would repurchase again if the sparse concentration of jojoba beads were removed. This cleaned well, oil based and goes milky upon contact with water. Its very pungent rose fragrance might not be for everyone but this is great quality. Its totally not worth the price, stem cells are all washed off anyhow but this is a solid performer. There are however so many options at one sixth of the price available now so I cannot recommend spending $70+USD on this, but if you have the cash to splurge and you love a toxic rose fragrance you will not be disappointed! The jojoba beads need to go though, they are too sparse to do anything.

Loose Powders -By Terry -Hyaluronic Hydra Powder

I really love this powder for setting my face and especially the concealer under my eyes. It is very fine and not drying, and it won't look cakey or unnatural. However, I tried using it for baking the area under my eyes once and then I went out for a drink. The morning after when I looked at some flash photos from the night before, I was horrified to see that it looked like I had applied a thick layer of baking powder under my eyes. I would definitely recommend using a small amount of this with a puffy brush to set the face or illuminate certain areas, and then use another powder on top if you want to bake.

Bottom line:
Yes! This is an amazing powder to set makeup if you apply a small amount. You don't need much and it doesn't look cakey even in daylight.

No! Do not use a large amount to set the area under your eyes if you are going out at night and there is a risk of someone taking a photo of you.

PS: I checked the box that said I would repurchase this if I ran out simply because considering the small amount that is needed to set your face, I'm pretty sure I will never ever run out of product. I've had it for over a year, used it on and off, and it still looks full.

Concealers -By Terry -Terrybly Densiliss Concealer

on 3/17/2018 9:20:00 PM


I love this concealer for its corrective properties. I use the shade 1 in Fresh Fair, and it is a light-medium peachy pink that is amazing in canceling out under eye dullness.
The shade range does not follow a logical sequence, as in, don't blind buy it based on how light your skin tone is. From what I've tested, shades 1 and 4 are neutralizers, 1 is lighter than 2. Shades 2 and 3 are beige concealers, with 3 being the lighter and 2 being darker and more muted. 5 and 6 are for deeper skin tones but both lean red.
I like using this in the winter because this is very high coverage without being heavy. I don't find it any less concealing than something like Tarte Shape Tape - but Shape Tape dries me out like no other and adds a crepey texture to my undereyes. I wouldn't go as far to say that Densiliss is nourishing or moisturizing, though, and I don't really see any 'wrinkle-targeting' technology at work other than that is is just a more silky formula than what you will find for most other high coverage concealers. Densiliss concealer's star qualities are that it is easy to blend, has flawless finish, a lovely brightening color, and is long lasting.
I will not repurchase because I found that the Sisley Phyto Cernes Eclat concealer gives me the same coverage and effect as this, but I am able to find it at a price that is much better value per oz. But I will happily use every last drop of the By Terry until I run out!

Lip Treatments -By Terry -Baume de Rose

on 2/26/2018 11:26:00 PM


How sad that this did not work for me. I did enjoy it the two weeks I was using it, mostly at bedtime (I owned the no spf version). I ran out of my bedtime blistex blue pot, and got this instead (quite a price difference). I love the subtle rose scent, the gorgeous and substantial packaging, and the lightly blushing balm it encases. The balm emulsifies easily with just a few swirls in the jar and applies a nice satin finish. It seals in the moisture, it won't feel tacky or juicy like some other balms, but I quite liked the satiny texture it left my lips. My lips feel protected upon waking up, not chapped but also not incredibly moisturized. It's odd, while you don't feel super moisturized, yet there are no chapped skin and no peeling bits. Overall i think it does its job well. Unfortunately I think I'm allergic to it, which led to a lot of itching around my lips and this was the only new product I introduced. It's now passed on to my mom and I hope she enjoys it.
