Autumn just got really colorful with *By Terry Game of Light. With an artfully put-together palette, two liquid lipsticks (Terrybly Velvet Rouge), and four contouring compacts (Terrybly Densiliss Contouring), it’s time to make a splash!
By Terry launched two Eye Designer Palettes earlier this year. The third Installment, Magnet’Eyes, packs 5 regular eyeshadows and 5 pressed pigments. If you enjoy jewel-toned shades, you’ll find a lot to love here. The compact comes with a thick velvet purple pouch. The plastic surface feels slightly bouncy and “sticky” if you know what I mean. It is definitely a compact you want to store carefully (don’t leave it lying around in the sun).
In general By Terry Magnet’Eyes Eye Designer Palette (3) swatches well, although the regular eyeshadows seem a little powdery/crumbly. Here’s to hoping I can come up with some cool looks!

By Terry launched their liquid lipstick line, Terrybly Velvet Rouge a little while back. Game of Light sees the addition of My Red (9) and a limited edition shade, Palace Garnet (it is very similar to Estee Lauder True Liar Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion, which I will hopefully blog about tomorrow).

The applicator has an interesting hourglass shape. I’ve tried it on once so far, and I think it takes a little getting used to. The great thing is you get to be very precise, but if you are like me (with non-existent lip-defining skills), it could take a little more work.

Spoiler alert: this thing is really awesome! I tried several liquid lipsticks when they started rolling out a few years ago, but I don’t think the technology was there yet (the Guerlain one is the only one I love). However, over the past week, I’ve seen two amazing liquid lipsticks that hit it out of the park. They have finally become something I can be excited about!
Contouring/highlighting is probably not a trend that’s going away anytime soon. Game of Light brings 4 Terrybly Densiliss Contouring (Winkle Control Sculpting Duo) Powders. There are two “foundation” combinations and two blusher combinations. I have Peachy Sculpt (300) here.
The darker shade in Peachy Sculpt is incredibly pigmented and smooth, but the lighter shade is a little sheer and powdery. Another concern I have is the lighter shade packs some obvious-looking shimmer.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed the shimmer will disappear between the pan and the cheeks.
Besides Game of Light, By Terry is also revamping Light-Expert. Now it’s called Light-Expert Click Brush Illuminating Flawless Foundation Brush. The brush is a flat-top kabuki that is just as good as a regular one you can buy (really reminds me of Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush). So far the mechanism has been working well. I don’t have to click like a maniac just to get some foundation on the brush. I haven’t had too much coming out with one click, either. The best part is you can twist the brush off for thorough cleansing!
There are 6 shades in total. I’ve been matched to the second darkest one, Golden Sand (10).

I need to try this on a few more times, but By Terry Light-Expert Foundation Brush is a jasmine-scented, lightweight, dewy, and moisturizing foundation. I get just enough coverage from the formula. I personally find the finish too dewy for my skin if I use nothing but the brush, but that can be fixed easily by bouncing the foundation into the skin with a sponge. I’ll tell you more soon!
Are you eyeing anything from this collection? Also, who else suffers from what I term as the first of September blues?
