By Terry Expert 2017 Collection is all about fulfilling every mood and whim of a selfie-lover with no filter. In this era where selfie’s play an important part of our daily lives and routines, something that enhances your beauty making you go without filter is a game changer. This cultural trend of looking photo ready all the time for selfies inspired Terry de Gunzburg to create this collection. By Terry has launched two new products this season called Compact-Expert Dual Powder and Stylo-Expert Click Stick. Both the products are created travel-friendly and multifaceted to make them wearable for every lifestyle.
Terry explains, “I wanted to create a collection that provides plenty of benefits without requiring any particular expertise. The objective was to attain a flawless skin that doesn’t require photo touch-ups, but appears just as perfect and clear as it does in real life”. This new collection utilizes I.M.C. Intensive Mimetic Camouflage technology, inspired by the challenges of backstage and photo-shoot makeup sessions. It is formulated with a blend of optical prisms, micro-camouflage pigments, and mineral powders. They all work together to blur imperfections, smooth skin;s overall texture, minimize shine, enhance the natural beauty of the complexion and capture and reflect light giving an instant radiance. I was kindly sent Compact-Expert Dual Powder in Shade 5 and Stylo-Expert Click Stick in Shade 11 for review.
Compact-Expert Dual Powder
Compact – Expert Dual Powder is described as a new hybrid powder with powers of mattifying, illuminating, blushing, bronzing sculpting, strobing and concealing powers. Is there something this powder can not do? Such Multitasker! The powder has matte powder on the outside and iridescent highlighter in the center.
The outer matte powder can be used as a mattifier for shine areas on the face, concealing imperfections, adding warmth to the face depending on the skin tone. The center iridescent highlighter illuminates and complements the outer matte powder. To get the sculpt look, the darker shade can be applied followed by lighter shade to contour the face.
Both shades when blend together gives an all-over natural glow to the complexion. There are eight shades available in these powders and based on the skin tone, they can serve multiple areas. The packaging of this powder is in the By Terry signature dark purple case. The texture of this powder is very buttery, one of the most beautiful texture I have felt and used. The shade 5 Amber Light suits my skin tone perfectly and works as a great all-over powder when blended together.
The center highlighter gives a beautiful natural glow to the skin. The outer matte powder works perfectly to reduce the shine without blocking the glow. The powder blends very easily into the skin and looks super natural. I did not notice any creasing, caking or settling into the lines and other imperfections on the face. I did notice the powder stayed in place all day for over 7 hours and at the end of the day, I was still looking a lot better than I do most of the days. I am a fan and would totally recommend this to anyone who prefers natural yet selfie-ready look all the time.
Stylo-Expert Click Stick
Stylo-Expert Click Stick is described as a silky stick, featuring an ultra creamy, ultra-lightweight formula that serves to cover dark circles, camouflage imperfections and unifies the complexion. Based on the shade and the skin tone, it can be used to sculpt the face. The formula is highly concentrated in pigments and a little product is required to cover most areas of the face. It contains Macadamia oil which is known to provide comfort and moisture to the skin making the product non-drying.
The finish of this product is velvety and radiant. To meet every need and fulfill every whim, Terry de Gunzburg created an application that is incredibly simple to master and perfectly effective: “Pat the product onto the areas that need correcting, as if you were making polka dots, and then blend into the skin with the fingertips or a sponge or brush.” There are 12 colors available in Stylo-Expert Click Stick. The product inside the silky stick is in tapered tear drop shaped tip that reaches every curve and hollow of the face. I like the idea of pressing the stick, press once and the product appears instantly. Shade 11 Amber Brown is a good match for my medium tan skin tone with yellow undertones. I have used it conceal my blemish marks, a small dab of the product on the area is all it needs to cover and conceal it. I like the way it feels, very creamy and blends very well into the skin, without looking extra.
Overall I am a fan and would totally recommend you to give them a try. They are technically crafted and superior as professional makeup products, with the best luxurious feeling and results. Both these products are available on all By Terry retailers and .com websites.
