It's been a while since I last did a five favourites post so I thought I'd bring it back with a brand that I have grown to really love over the past year - By Terry! I could easily have chosen 10 favourites so I have to say that narrowing it down to five was almost impossible. Terry De Gunzburg was a makeup designer for YSL for 15 years before embarking on creating her own line. She even invented Touché Eclat for YSL and her focus has always been on healthy, radiant skin. Baume De Rose is the product that the brand is most famous for (it was actually created after a mix up in the lab, which saw double the amount of rose butter added to the balm), but it certainly isn't a one trick pony! Here are my ultimate top five products from the brand and I would love to hear your favourites in the comments below.
Terrybly Densiliss Foundation: This is the most expensive foundation in my collection but I can safely say that it's worth the money for the airbrushed look it gives my skin. The coverage is pretty full, yet it doesn't look or feel heavy. It glides over pores and fine lines to give skin a filtered look and lasts for a good 9/10 hours without fading or breaking down. The finish is luminous rather than glowy, which is very flattering on the skin. It contains 'mimetic factor' which is designed to encourage collagen production and more elasticity in the skin so it's a clever skincare-makeup hybrid product.
Compact-Expert Dual Powder in Apricot Glow: This is a dual powder/highlight - the powders can be used separately to mattify certain areas of the skin and highlight others. I personally like to swirl my brush around both powders in the pan and apply all over my cheeks for a soft focus, glowing finish.
Terrybly Densiliss Blush in Platinum Blonde: This blush is housed in a weighty compact that also has a velvet pouch. You know that a product is bougie when it has a velvet pouch but I usually disregard them after a while! This is the crème de la crème of blush formulas - soft and velvety, it just blends into the cheeks so well and doesn't highlight any textured or porous areas. It's also very long-lasting and this particular shade is very flattering on my medium skin.
Ombré Blackstar: The original cream shadow sticks! These were so hyped around 4/5 years ago and with good reason. They are so creamy and easy to apply and also have great pigmentation. The perfect product to use when you want to look put together but have approximately 10 seconds available to do your eye makeup! I have oily lids so I have to use a primer, but once I do, they last well. They also make a great base for powder shadows.
Lash-Expert Twist Brush: I love this mascara because I can use the brush to give my lashes length and definition, then twist it to add volume. The formula is perfect - non-smudgy but it also doesn't make my lashes feel crispy. It doesn't flake and is easy to remove. An all round winner!
