My first experience with By Terry was the Ombre Blackstar and ever since I have fallen in love with the brand. Wednesday evening I was lucky enough to attend the launch of the By Terry Light Expert Click Brush, a new and improved version of the Light Expert Click Brush, which is being released next month.
The By Terry Light Expert Click Brush* is not your typical foundation - it functions like a foundation, highlighter and corrector all in one. As the name would suggest, No.2 Apricot Light is a peachy colour that works as a corrector. I wasn't sure on the colour at first, but it blends seamlessly to my skin tone and is the perfect match. The foundation is very light weight, you can barely feel it on your skin, and has a strong rose water scent, which may be too much for some people, but does fade over time.
The dark purple tube has a button at its base, just one click produces 4 drops of the foundation, the perfect dose for a light coverage. I personally like to use two clicks for a light to medium coverage, which wastes a lot less product than your traditional foundation. The kabuki brush can be used to buff the product into the skin, however I find it applies streaky. I therefore apply with the brush and blend with my fingers. This foundation does not conceal blemishes or under eye circles very well, but paired with a concealer this produces a flawless natural finish that has the most amazing glow.
The satin finish is my favourite, slightly dewy but not over the top. I am genuinely very very impressed with this foundation. Its downfall unfortunately is the price. Could I bare to pay £48 for a foundation? I don't know, but I will be tempted to replace it one it has gone.
The Light Expert Click brush is available in 6 different colours and can be purchased from Space NK from next month.
