Happy New Year to you all! I have my first review of the year with a look at some items from By Terry. They launched a new VIP Expert Paris Mon Amour Palette* and Twinkle Glow Highlighter* over the holiday and I have swatches for you today.
Twinkle Glow CC Highlighter
The Twinkle Glow CC Highlighter has sold out most places but is still available right now at Beautylish. It’s a multi-dimensional highlighter that has a soft peachy rose gold shimmer to it with a very luminous glow. It’s not quite as metallic as the Becca Shimmering Pressed Perfectors but has that same soft texture and a similar vibe in how it catches the light and adds shimmer. On my medium tan complexion, it pulls warm and almost bronzey but still has enough contrast on my skin to be a highlighter color. If you’re lighter than me it will definitely pull more on the bronzey side. If you are darker than me I feel like the gold tones will be more visible.
Swatches below next to the Brightening CC Palette (back in stock and reviewed here) which has a softer shimmer with sheerer pigment and the Diorskin Nude Luminizer in 01 (which has a more visible glow).
It has a smooth application even though it’s quite shimmery. Lasting power is excellent and it stayed put without fading all day on me. As lovely as it is I don’t know that I would call it a must-have – you can get a similar effect with other brands.
VIP Expert Eyeshadow Palette
The VIP Expert Palette in Paris Mon Amour has a mix of satins and mattes. I really like the combination of colors! It has a couple warmer shades that make for pretty layering but also has a good mix of neutrals so it’s not too warm. Colors include:
- Matte white
- Satin cool brown
- Shimmer baby pink
- Shimmery soft peach coral
- Deeper dusty matte brown
- Darker bronze shimmer
- Metallic sparkle gold (works as a topper)
- Shimmery wine plum
- Shimmery sandy taupe
- Matte ivory
The colors have a soft look to them but are easy to layer and blend. You can create a wide range of looks with this palette and I do think it’s one you can wear year round.
Look wearing a few other By Terry favorites (press samples have a * next to them):
- Foundation – By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Foundation in 400N
- Powder – Hyaluronic Pressed Hydra-Powder*
- Blush – Brightening CC Palette* + CC Serum in Sunny Flash* to add some glow
- Highlighter – Twinkle Glow CC Highlighter*
- Eyeshadow – VIP Expert Palette in Paris Mon Amour*
- Eyeliner – Crayon Khol* in Black Print
- Mascara – Lash Expert Mascara* (best for me when layered with a waterproof formula)
- Lips – Lip Expert Shine* in Bare Flirt
- Top – Vince
Hope you found these swatches and makeup looks helpful! You can find most of the products online at By Terry. They’re also having a pretty good sale with some major markdowns on the By Terry Sale Page.
Quick note that the highlighter was limited-edition and has sold out most places by now. I was able to still find it at Beautylish as of this morning if you have it on your wishlist!
I took some time off the blog for the new year but regular posting will resume next week! Stay tuned for more beauty newness soon.
