Brands: By Terry


I first heard about this luxurious brand 2 years ago on an English fashion forum where people were raving about her products and the fact that she has an entire skin care line based on roses... Well, you might have noticed but I love roses and after some research I realised there was an ICI Paris counter that carried By Terry very close to me, lucky me! By Terry offers skin care and make-up.

Journalists have dubbed her "The genius of make-up, the guru of color..." Women from all walks of life can't live without her advice, her products, and her revolutions. The mother of 4 children, TERRY applies her talents and imagination in the world of luxury products. After refining her ingenuity, creative spirit and expertise for 20 years in collaboration with the greatest names in fashion and beauty, in 1998, TERRY launched the passionate adventure of her own signature label, BY TERRY.

If you say By Terry you're speaking about absolute luxe. Her line is expensive but some products are worth it. If you want to indulge in luxury, check her out. Before she dedicated herself to her line, she worked close with YSL and it is in fact her who invented the touch pens, also available in her line. Other products that people rave about are:
  • the lip balm with SPF
  • the rose liquid blush
  • touch veloutee / touch expert

I only have a few products from her but more of them are on my wishlist to get, take a look:

One of her foundations, the Lumière Veloutée in colours 3 summer and 2 winter - love the packaging milk glass bottle and golden top -. I wore this a lot last year (practically every day) and it is one of the best foundations I've used when I had normal skin as this gives you the most beautifull finish - your skin looks perfect. But sadly enough my skin has become a lot drier and this isn't a good foundation for dry skin because of its powdery finish. I still have 1/3 in each bottle (30ml) left and occasionally try it to see if my skin can pull it off. Bummer, I loved this even though it had a heavy price tag of 60-70euros, I didn't need much to cover my face.

Then two of her 'star' products, the well known pens: the light expert in 2 and the touche veloutee in 2. The light expert is intended as a foundation brush or a highlighter and the touche veloutee is a concealer as well as a highlighter. Both products cost between 30 and 40 euros.

And lastly one of her skin care items from the roses line, the first product I bought from her, the Radiance Renewing Mask. It comes in a gorgeous pink packaging and when opening it up the best roses scent ever enters your nose. Costed 50euros.

Products are available in certain Ici Paris shops, SpaceNK and on her website as well. If you like to splurge on luxurious brands, this is one line to look into. If you like an in depth review from one of these, let me know...
