BY TERRY PALETTE FACTORY | M x T C

My first impulse is to write good morning but I can do that because this is a globally viewed blog, If there is one thing to know about my writing process is I wake up, do what I have to do (go for a run, pick up coffee, feed my fish) and then I write, it’s anywhere from 4am – 5am and I’m done by the first ray of sun kisses the night good bye, I guess I could say, good day, anyways, off topic, how are you? today I’m going to be talking about BY TERRY and their new Palette Factory, and if you don’t know much about BY TERRY well by the end of this post I hope you learn something of one of the worlds first luxury brands of makeup still around to date. There is a lot some iconic work of the creator of BY TERRY, Terry de Gunzburg still used by rival brands to date when she was employed by them in 1992, fun fact in 1992 I was 2 years old.

BY TERRY was a massive influence in the beauty industry then and now, in fact she got it so right that not much has changed within the branding or the ingredients of course the brand would evolve with the times, every great brand doesIn 1985, Terry was hired by Yves Saint Laurent to develop the brand’s cosmetic line. In 1992 she created Touché Éclat, the iconic brush-on concealer/highlighter that is often referred to as “8 hours of sleep in a tube” which is still a big best-seller for the brand. “From YSL, I learned the essence of how to anticipate women’s needs.” said Ms.de Gunzburg.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ De Gunzburg founded her label, By Terry, in 1998, while she was still the creative director of YSL Beauté.

There hasn’t been many new launches from BY TERRY over the years but one is a killer under eye product, and no it’s not the eye brightener but I do think they marry really well together, for 7ml of product it costs $90.00US the Terrybly Densiliss Concealer, this potion comes with a price tag but for under your eyes it’s a massive game changer, its more than a full coverage concealer its, a full coverage treatment. I had to throw in my favourite product from BY TERRY.

Now lets talk about the palette factory launching online and in select Sephora’s ➡️ you can choose from 1, 3, 4 or 8 inserts ranging in costs from $79.00 all the way too $495.00 – I know that is quite a jump eh but it’s a luxury brand, any A-list celebrity or celebrity makeup artist will have BY TERRY in their makeup kit.

I choose the 8 pan palette, in front of you or online via the BY TERRY website you should have a empty palette so its time to pick what you want, you can choose your shades, colors, if you want matte, shimmer you even have the choice of pattern if you want marble, half and half or trio (1 pan with 2 shades pressed inside)  whatever you want,  you’re creating your own BY TERRY custom palette – You can literally if you did this in store create your perfect shade of powder foundation by mixing three shades together in marble so when all those shade mix together you have your ideal shade. I know BY TERRY isn’t the first company to do this, and I am sure it won’t be the last but the way that the company approached this is so smart, there is so many colors, base shades, finishes, and possibilities.

DID YOU KNOW ➡️ Terry has been called the Steve Jobs of makeup. It might sound a slightly strange thing to say but much like Steve Jobs, she has created sophisticated, luxurious products which quickly become absolutely essential to their users.

TOP THREE EYES.LIPS.FACE *DUPE ALERT | MXTC BEAUTY | MAKEUPxTHECITY

What is cookin’ good lookin’ welcome back to MAKEUPxTHECITY (MXTC BEAUTY) yes, you may have noticed that I’ve previously started changing names, traveling more and organizing some pretty cool things with some amazing brands and companies, so at this point I can say, I used to have a dream of a makeup line but I jumped into it way to fast and wanted to much to soon and it, it just didn’t work and wasn’t branded right, so I’m now working with a partner for MXTC BEAUTY and the first thing will be launch is the ultimate face(s) brush set, which is three brushes with iconic charcoal fibers that will change the way you do your entire base with only three brushes that you will use for, concealer, foundation, primer, powder(s), contour, highlight, skin care if you want one of the biggest things is the forth item that comes inside the package that allows you to change between only the three brushes and not have carry any product over, birthing the only face base set from MXTC BEAUTY, I am going to be sending these out in PR before I even tell a retailer and a launch date because I want word of mouth to travel globally. Permanently infused with Charcoal powder.  Paraben and sulfate free.  Brushes stay fresher for longer and more importantly are anti-bacterial ➡️  it’s also the as mentioned above the fourth item within that will change and I mean change your base routine also just the unique brush cute, the length of the beautiful handles, so much more – I also want to say thank you to Cosmetco Company and TrustPilot  for helping to make my vision a reality and CROWN Brushes for sitting down with me and really showing me the ropes! Ok so that’s my little news! Let’s move on to E.L.F and drugstore products!

So I’ve found that E.L.F has came out with products that, well, could be considered DUPES but from my research some, and I mean some of them E.L.F actually came out first, also – did you know our favourite luxe brands are actually inflated prices of up to 70% – yikes. If you check the ingredients list you will find a lot of the items of the high end list and of E.L.F are the same. I’ve picked three items from E.L.F that I think are just to good to be true for the items and complete threats. E.L.F came to play, and they are not stopping and why would they. Why should they?.

Item one is clear and obvious, E.L.F Camo Concealer which is such a killer concealer, I littler only use a concealer under my eyes blended down to around my nose, and a vegan setting powder that just melts into the skin and melts into the concealer. The intense pigmentation is full coverage, but won’t settle into fine lines, courtesy of its oil-balancing formula that leaves behind a full matte finish so make sure that you lay down moisturizer and a good primer!

➡️ I said that I am done with the company Tarte, I’ve made it very, very clear that I did not wish to work with them anymore, buuuut I have to bring attention to the fact that E.L.F Camo Concealer and Tarte Shapetape are almost one the same – Tarte finish in my eyes is actually less then Eyes Lip Face (E.L.F) I love the matte finish and the extreme coverage. I will actually be showing both wanders and you will see they are identical ➡️ which is bananas to me! It does leaves a long lasting, velvety matte finish that looks almost airbrushed. I even tried it under my eyes, where I tend not to use any matte products, and it was still good. I mean, I do like something a lot dewier for that area, but it isn’t at all unflattering and doesn’t settle into the lines.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ E.L.F is actually labeled as the best budget concealer all the luxury ingredients for only $5.00 ($6.00 in Canada) remember when I said luxe brands mark up also 70% please always remember that but also, don’t be running to a dollar store saying Kam told me too!

With this concealer you can’t go wrong for the price, for the packaging and for the fact that it works, and it works good, and the fact that if you try to find it right now it’s pretty much sold out almost everywhere! They do re-stock them quickly but you have to go or recheck as much as you can and it would be the same as my other two items on the list!

The next item is E.L.F Booster Drops for skin care to custom create your own regime or to add and use as serum! personally I like to add it right to my skin in a patting motion so that it protects against any feature break outs, I don’t have acne or breakouts as it stands but I love the smell of tea tree oil, zinc, which hazel and all the other none chemical ingredients! but guess who came out with very similar if not the same items COVER FX also lets not forget COVER FX used to be sold in drug stores to help people with problem skin and personally I feel as if they sold out, they were already a million(s) dollar company so I don’t get why but that’s how it works I guess.

There are many benefits to a booster serum, and it differs from your regular serum by giving you faster results. The ingredients are concentrated in larger amounts, which gives you a “boost” in outcomes. You typically use three to four drops on your face, and you can use it with a combination of other serums and lotions in a multiple-step skincare routine, delivering a series of restorative ingredients that will get your complexion to look its best. But seeing how it’s such an effective product, small viles usually cost anywhere between $30-$100 or more, which isn’t easily accessible to beauty lovers on a smaller budget. Seeing that gap in need, E.L.F stepped in with their own version. E.L.F Booster Drops cost under or exactly $11.00.

The next item is one that SMASHBOX had on shelves for quite some time and that would be there primer water, but it doesn’t do all the things that E.L.F has created for their primer water, matte, hydration, glow, clean and fresh and the list goes on. I love this one from E.L.F more then then SMASHBOX because it actually, and I mean actually works! As it dries down it becomes a tacky good matte but not moister sucking primer and trust me, we all know my love for SMASHBOX and how much the brand has had my back and helped me so much within my career but I can’t lie, E.L.F figured something out that SMASHBOX just, well couldn’t and maybe its because the one from SMASHBOX is a primer water and a setting spray from E.L.F it would be only a primer.
