There is a place for subtle and barely-there, but there is also a place for off-the-charts color payoff. If you tend to favor the latter, you might adore *By Terry Peachy Sculpt Terrybly Densiliss Contouring and *By Terry My Red Terrybly Velvet Rouge!
By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Contouring Wrinkle Control Sculpting Duo Powder (6 grams/0,21 oz. 75 euros) is housed in the same hefty compact as Terrybly Densiliss Blush. There are two contour/highlight options as well as two blushes. Peachy Sculpt (300) is the lighter of the two.
The darker side of By Terry Peachy Sculpt is a “rusty” warm peachy pink. The finish is barely satin, and I can see some delicate shimmer. I can’t stress this enough, but you need to use a light hand here. Just to be safe, work the brush on the back of your hand a little before dabbing it on your cheeks. Yeah, it is that pigmented! It looks great on the skin, it’s easy enough to blend out, and it just lasts and lasts. In the perfect world, this is what every blush should be!
The light side of By Terry Peachy Sculpt is a pale pink with glitter. It is pigmented enough, but not as crazy pigmented as the darker half. Here is the thing: the glitter stays rather visible on my cheeks. My buddy Sara has dry skin and she said the glitter looks like a sheen on her. On my normal/combination skin, the glitter does look like glitter. It is not the obnoxious type that settles into pores, but it’s not something you can ignore. Personally, I find it a pity. I love how the two shades look mixed together, but with the glitter in the lighter shade, it ends up looking a little too shiny on me. If you also have oilier skin, you might want to dose this carefully and place it strategically.

A regular By Terry blush goes for 54 euros here, but this one is 75. Again, the color payoff and lasting power are truly impressive. You just have to make sure you have a higher shimmer tolerance than I do!
By Terry My Red Terrybly Velvet Rouge (9. 2 ml/0,07 oz. 34 euros) is another liquid lipstick that has knocked my socks off recently. The packaging may seem unassuming, but the rose-scented formula is an eye opener!
The applicator of By Terry Terrybly Velvet Rouge is shaped like an hourglass. I find it the easiest when I use the tip like a lip liner to map out the shape first before laying the applicator down horizontally to fill in the lips. Since the formula is seriously pigmented and the shade is very bold, I’d encourage you to be as precise as you can. Alternatively, you can apply with a lip brush.
By Terry My Red Terrybly Velvet Rouge swatch one pass:
Like I said, the formula of My Red Terrybly Velvet Rouge is on point. Not only is it incredibly pigmented, it lasts well and wears off beautifully. You can consume a full meal and multiple drinks before you feel the need to reapply, which could easily take half a day. The formula feels velvety smooth on the lips, but it does not migrate out of lip lines at all!
