I loved this blush when I first bought it - it is luxurious and sheer. I have found over time that moisture interferes with the product so badly that it just won't apply properly anymore. I have never had this problem with any other brand - NARS, SK2, Cle de peau, Bobbi Brown. I don't know what the problem is, I have also encountered it with a BT eyeshadow. Sadly, this one will need to go in the bin, and given how beautiful the compact is and how expensive it was - it a a cosmetics tragedy :(

The previous reviewer did an excellent job. I can't add much more. This is crazy expensive but the compact is luxurious. It's relatively small but not tiny. It's very heavy. The color is gorgeous as is the quilted pattern of the blush. I like that the texture is very sheer so your skin shows through. Looks very natural.

Holy smokes, Blush Terrybly is expensive!
I tried on shade #2, Erotic Pink, at the recommendation of a Space NK worker at the NYC SoHo location. At the time, fortunately for me, they were out of stock, so I ended up getting some other products and went on my merry way. I was kind of happy that it was out of stock, since I knew from experience that by Terry products, while high in quality, are astronomically priced.
However, I couldn't get this blush out of my head! On my light golden complexion, it just looked so right! It is a cool-toned, mid rose-pink with no particular shimmer to speak of, but it somehow adds a glow to my cheeks. (The swatch on the by Terry website is quite accurate.) I usually roll my eyes at any sort of beauty marketing lingo, but the "micro-prism" technology that by Terry speaks of really does give an uplifted effect to my complexion. The texture is so fine and creamy that it blends into the skin rather than sits on top of it, and can be worn with cream or liquid foundations.
Fast forward a couple of weekends... I went to a different Space NK and plunked down the $75 USD (gasp!!!!) for this blush. Luckily, I had a $5 reward coupon, so the blow, while still awful, wasn't quite so bad.
The blush comes in a large box, about the size of a perfume box. The compact is shiny silver metal, about the size of a powder compact, and substantially heavy. It comes with a little purple drawstring pouch for storage, and also has a small brush enclosed in the compact. I've been using the brush, but have to admit it is quite cheaply formed (ie. plastic handle, and the bristles shed), so I will probably start using one of my real blush brushes to apply.
The surface of the blush is in a quilted pattern and embossed with "by Terry," which adds to the luxury effect. As another Blush Terrybly reviewer has mentioned, there is a strange rose-powder-floral scent, but that quickly fades upon application. (For the record, it is not nearly as strong as Burberry blushers.)
A couple of gentle sweeps on the cheeks lasts all day, and there is no oxidation or color change. It does not irritate my skin or dry it out. I am very happy with this blush, despite the humongous pricetag, and would love to try some other colors.
