Terry de Gunzburg is a famous French born Cosmetic Guru who is also called the Steve Jobs of makeup. She said once, ‘ Behind Glamour, behind Innovation, you have to be in love with Science’ This is the basis of creating something so beautiful that will have no boundaries of age groups to use the product but everyone may use it. I know the palette I am going to review is from Fall 2016 but it is still available at Cult Beauty and Beautylish who deliver worldwide, so better late than never. I bought this By Terry Eye Designer Palette Parti-Pris in shade called Forest Desire. The main reason I bought this palette is that I am a fan of anything Green for my eyes and I just ordered this palette once I saw it on Beautylish.
Cult beauty describes this palette as ‘Each with six sumptuous, velvety-textured shades of shimmering shadow, By Terry’s Eye Designer Palettes Parti-Pris are things of beauty and a joy to use. Beautifully buttery, the complementary colors blend together seamlessly to create a dazzling spectrum of day-to-evening makeup looks: ‘Forest Designer’ contains an array of autumnal shades, ranging from taupe to midnight blue via copper, pale moss and a trio of warm beige and tawny browns‘. The shades include a beige shimmer, a light gray shimmer, subtle gray- green shimmer, golden-copper shimmer, gunmetal gray shimmer, steel blue shimmer.
The palette is embossed with By Terry’s signature logo and is slim enough to be a great companion while on the go. The palette has a complete mirror lid in case. The palette houses 6 shades which are very neutral and subdued. They are like the shades that would be seen in the autumn forest when the moss on the trees begin to fade and the leaves start to dry out and they turn various shades.
The formula of these eye shadows is soft and buttery. The texture makes it very easy to apply and is very blendable. The staying power is also nice, it lasts all day with an eye primer on my oily lids. I have used the eyeshadow with both my fingertip and my hands and do enjoy applying it. With a wet brush, it gives a gorgeous more intense look.
With such neutral and subdues shades, I love the way it looks on my medium tan skin tone. It looks very natural and the shades of gdo does enhance my dark brown eyes. This palette retails for CAD $75 excluding taxes.
