Starting a new job is always taking so much of the brain resources. New environment, new rules, so many new people whose names have to be remembered. I am behind answering the comments but I am hoping you can bare with me on that a few more days, given the fact that I still somehow manage to blog *winks*. I have gathered some pretties lately and I would feel bad if I don't show them to you.
By Terry has a solid permanent line up which I enjoy to bits. I collected quite a few pieces of her line during the last years. The damage usually happens when I travel to France, where By Terry counters are widely available. Ah there are so many products, all are to die for. Even better is that By Terry recently started releasing seasonal collections. Today I have three products from the Fall Collection Game of Light to share with you. These were kindly provided by Beautylish (not affiliated). They have the collection on sale at the moment.

The yummiest piece I laid my hands on is a blush duo, By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Contouring #300 Peachy Sculpt Blush (find it here at Beautylish, not affiliated). Peachy Sculpt has a very luxury heavy compact and a design to die for. Left is a light neutral pink shade with some glitter particles. This can be used as a highlighter or applied over or mixed with the blush shade to provide more reflection on the cheek bones. Although it swatches with glitters, on the cheeks it is transferred more as a sheen. The finish of left side reminds me of Chanel Accent (reviewed here) which was also a great sculpting product on me.

On the right hand side of the compact there is a beautiful autumny shade which has a very good color pay off and most delicate low key shimmer, a perfect formula! It is hard to describe this shade but I would call it a warm pink with a touch of peach. Do you have a better description? If both of the shades are mixed, the result is more pink. This makes the compact a perfect blush palette since you are getting three shades at once. Be aware though it is a little heavy but once you take this chic compact out of your purse to reapply, you are guaranteed to be noticed.
All in all, big love for this formula and the idea of a duo to sculpt the cheeks. I am definitely lusting over the pink blush as well as the contouring duos too.

The liquid lipsticks of By Terry line, Terribly Velvet Rouge (find it here at Beautylish, not affiliated), are extended by two shades this season, #9 My Red is a vivid neutral red and #10 Palace Garnet is a medium to deep warm berry plum. To my understanding Palace Garnet is limited edition. This is the first time I am trying this formula and I am smitten by how intensely pigmented it is, how well t stays put on the lips but also how hydrating it feels. A similar formula is Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro which is much more drying on me. The fact that these are so densely pigmented does come at a price though, you need to be precise with you application. I found it easier to get a little at the back of my hand and work with a lip brush. A little tip, once you are getting some product for application, get the tiniest amount because even a drop is enough to cover my lips fully.

Here are a few FOTDs for you to see the product in action. On the first one I am wearing By Terry By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Contouring #300 Peachy Sculpt Blush on cheeks, By Terry Eye Designer Palette #1 Smoky Nude (reviewed here) on eyes applied on Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Duo Cream Eyeshadow and By Terry Velvet Rouge #9 My Red on lips. As a highlighter I am using the light color from the blush duo.
Although I am not a big red wearer, I am enjoying My Red a lot. It is dense but at the same time once on the lips, it has something casual and light-hearted about it. I also love how it combines with Peachy Sculpt Blush.

Now let's enter my territory shall we. That gorgeous berry there is #2diefor! I would wear this lipstick everyday once the weather gets a little cooler. It just compliments any nude eye so perfectly, love! Here I am wearing By Terry By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Contouring #300 Peachy Sculpt Blush on cheeks, By Terry Eye Designer Palette #1 Smoky Nude (this time without a base) on the eyes. On my lips, I have Velvet Rouge #10 Palace Garnet.
This is the look I wore to first day at my new job. Just to make sure no one is shocked by the lipstick, I blotted it slightly and left a stain. That way it was more wearable for the day time. Even after blotting it lasted up to 4-5 hours on me.

Final thoughts: I am loving the blush duo in Peach Sculpt for its texture and color pay off as well as its shade which can be adjusted as warm or cool, definitely recommended. Velvet Rouge is great for liquid lipstick lovers who want their hippies to pack some real pigment. These feel comfortable and hydrating too. I love both of these shades but my heart is set on purple, what a surprise right?
Have you tried any By Terry products? What is your favourite of the line?
