Blush Terrybly Platonic Coral - pictures, and tester wanted
I haven't reviewed it despite having it for a while because honestly, I don't think I'd buy it myself. If I was ever going to spend £50 on a blush it would be the Serge Lutens one. I don't see much point generally in reviewing things on this blog that I'd never consider parting with my own cash for because I suspect that most people who read it have similar values (and lines in the sand) as I do. I like and buy some products from By Terry, but I do think the idea of an already very high-end brand having a 'premium' subset within it is a bit of an odd one. I could just about see paying the £60 for the powder foundation if I was a bit older and my skin was more dry/fragile, due to the skincare benefit claims made for it, but I'm sceptical whether a blush would have the same effect. This blush claims to detoxify and boost skin volume, so I'd like to ask for a volunteer in her (or his) forties or older to try the blush and report back to me after a few weeks use. I have swatched the blush for the purpose of this post, but have not otherwise used it.
Swatch on my ring fingertip and the back of my hand. It's a pretty, subtle apricot. It has no shimmer, but has a soft matte glow, similar to the Rouge Bunny Rouge powder blushes that I like. The Blush Terrybly is more pigmented than Chantecaille powder blushes, but not so pigmented that it would be easy to overcook.
