Just received this concealer as a present after trying EVERY SINGLE KIND OF concealer on the market for my very dark under eye circles (including benefit, smashbox, NARS, tarte, Bobbi Brown, and every drugstore brand out there). Had my eye on this for awhile but it's pretty expensive. After using this for one night I am OBSESSED WITH IT. I got it in the middle tone (cream) and it's perfect. I have tan/olive skin and very dark under eye circles and it covers them up PERFECTLY and also brightens the area. Definitely expensive but worth it -- BEST GIFT EVER!!!
I must have the worst dark circles in the world, reason why I've tried almost everything out there. Heard about By Terry for a while, decided to buy a month ago, despite it's expensive price. After all, it was Christmas:)
I am conflicted about this product. I expected to illuminate my under eyes area, if not cover it entirely. It does illuminate, after purchasing the lightest colour in Porcelain, but is has poor coverage. So you might use some heavy concealer underneath, as I'm using the Benefit one, and then pop this on top.
The thing I most love about this product is it's the first concealer that doesn't set in your wrinkles! I mean, all of the others make me look even more tired and old, am I'm only 28:)) But this one stay all day floating over your lines so it's perfect on this context.
It does a bit of highlighting which is great, but I would've preferred more coverage... I believe the ones with less problems can say it is perfect, but I still want to find something better that has them all: coverage, illuminating, stay-out-of-lines power.
Anyway, I would still purchase by Terry as a highlighter and hope my under eye area will improve with creams or surgery;))
After seeing the QVC presentation, I had to try this! It looked AMAZING on the models, and I was like that is just what I need!
Fast forward to now, and I bought this in Creme, the color is completley off really yellow and dark, even with tanned skin! My dark circles still show through and there is no illuminating what so ever. The consistency is really really runny but then dries a little after and does turn powdery.
I'm so sad/mad/dissapointed, I thought this was going to be my holy grail, in comparison to Cle De Peau, it doesn't hold a candle to it. I bought CDP a while back and used it up, bought it in Beige and it was perfect. The price however isn't and Touche isn't either. Still on the hunt for my HG.
For those who don't like that you can't see how much is left - a SA showed me that you can unscrew the bottom and slide out the inner tube, which is clear so you can see how much product is still in there.
This is the first review I've ever written, but I had let everyone know about how amazing this concealer is! I'm part middle eastern, and have dark deep set under eye circles, they have been the focus of my makeup routine since I can remember. I've tried every brand and type of concealer imaginable, but none were really the whole package. They would either cake, crease, look obvious and unnatural, or be too thick and pull on my delicate skin when applying. I can honestly say this is unlike anything Ive ever used. Like other reviewers have said the lady responsible for this is the same person who make the famous YSL concealer, I tried that one too, NOTHING special. It brightened the under eye area but virtually no concealing. The by terry concealer brightens, moisturizes, is FULL coverage (but you wouldn't know it by how thin it is in consistency), and looks beautiful and natural. Words really dont do it justice, if you have under eye issues you have to try it, you wont regret it! It's pricey but worth every penny.
I was using cle de peau's stick concealer for about 5 months and I believed I was in love but I just wanted to be in love. I have a dry under eye and my concealer always cakes on my skin because it's so dry! The cdp concealer was not as drying and it had good coverage but I was using shade #2 and it was too yellow for me so if I had dark under eye circles it would look like a green cast. I read about this concealer and when I misplaced my cdp I went out and bought touche veloutee. First off I love the packaging it is like a monster touche éclat and it's so modern and sleek. The shade i got was 1 porcelain. I am a nc 15/20 and this works well for the blue based dark circles. What's amazing about this product is that it is a very thin consistency but it's so pigmented and actually full coverage. It covers and highlights incredibly well. This product just makes me so wide eyed and awake. Though this product is really expensive you really don't need to use a lot and this product could last a while. At least I hope it does!
I love this concealer. I saw it demonstrated on QVC during a Space.NK presentation. Space.NK is a British store that only sells the best cosmetic products in each category. Terry Touche Veloutee is their choice for a highlight concealer. Terry is the originator for YSL of Touche Eclat. This is her own line and she has perfected this concealer. It is wonderful as an undereye as well as a concealer on the face. Use it sparingly. Also the distributing element is 3 times the size of Touche eclat. At the time of the QVC demonstration and my initial interest, it sold out at QVC in seconds. I was able to try out and buy this concealer at Barney's in Chicago. The colors run dark. I purchased in porcelain. Highly recommend!!
Have this in 'cream'. For me, in terms of colour, consistency and application, this worked out so much better than YSL's Touche Eclat, which I have been using for some years. Only used under eyes, but understand it can be used in other areas too.
£34 for a concealer is a lot of money but if the product is AMAZING- i will pay it. I have quite bad circles (i use clarins eye contour gel at night which is great- my darkness really has faded a lot if say by 50%!!) and i love the slightly lighter under eye look like Kim K does. I like my undereye circles totally covered and my eyes lit up! I have tried all the usual pen type concealers- and hated them all, the guerlain one was the best of a bad lot, and couldnt for the life of me understand how the ysl and dior one ever got good reviews- they were too white, disappeared after an hour, dry...urgh the list goes on. This one is A-MAZING. Its totally different quality to these ysl ones etc. It brightens the under eye area in a second. Its very light but has great medium-high coverage. I do wear MUFE full cover concealer underneathe if im going out and need to look totally polished and perfect otherwise i use it on its own. It doesnt crease like 99% concealers out there, stays put and no need to re apply every hour! I am nc30-35ish lightly tanned and i use shade 2 cream its perfect its also the shade Kim uses :) If you have bad darkness and have been disappointed with the other pen type concealers- this one is nothing like them! They are on a quality number 2/10, this is 11/10!!!!! And i have those fine creases under my eyes that almost ALL concealers crease in (im 26 so not wrinkles) and this one doesnt i just pat it in and it looks like i had 8 hours sleep! would pay even more for this its that good!
My mum had this product so when I started to get spots I borrowed it to hide them. That was a very big mistake. It dried out my skin sooo badly and looked cakey and horrible and unnatural. I got alot of stares and many people came up to me to say my makeup looked terrible. I was too scared to look in the mirror because I knew my spots would be showing. And they were, in a great mess of cakeiness, orange and dry skin. It looked awful. Luckily I learnt my lesson, stopped using the concealer and my skin looked sooo much better. This concealer, for me, is such a regret and if you have spots, dry or oily skin I would definatly not recommend this product.
