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.

LIKE SAND THROUGH THE HOURGLASS | M X T C

I’m sorry, I had to title today’s post that, I’m sure you get we will be breaking down some new, some iconic and some not that the brand aimed way to high for and it just, flopped, hard. Anyways, wonderful Saturday to you all! Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s day which used to mean a lot of alcoholic beverages for a lot of different people, maybe I will go out and have a few but my man is working and is a lead chef in a restaurant so, it’s a bigger night for anywhere that has booze on the menu. I actually stopped drinking, and I wish I had a huge from the bottom up story or waking up in strange places or something but I don’t really, alcohol just isn’t good for your body, skin or mind.  Plus it’s very easy too cross a line when you drink that you can’t come back from. So I guess all I can say is, be safe, be with friends, and be smart.

Alright, so now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about Hourglass luxury beauty, and yes all items talked about will be added into the giveaway if you have been following any previous post TGIF! WhiteWithStyle | M X T C check that out and pop back to continue, I can wait! I don’t mind! I absouloutly love Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation, I think it’s one of the all time best products out there, pop culture would also agree with me, and you know what they say, don’t mess with a classic – They came out with a full liquid version of Vanish, with some big and I mean big claims ➡️ no primer needed ➡️ half a pump to do the entire face ➡️ second skin natural finish! Hourglass said that it they feel its the future of foundation.

Weightless, instant full coverage is delivered through the formula’s innovative coated pigments—allowing for seamless application and a long-wearing, second-skin adherence. A natural finish is delivered through light-refracting microspheres, blurring and smoothing any imperfections for virtually perfect skin. With all of that being said there is a lot of mixed reviews so put every claim to the test over two weeks to find out exactly what was up, I found that it does oxidize quickly and become shade(s) darker quickly, it sticks to dry areas and really shows off any little flake of dryness, there is no natural finish this is drying and matte, make sure if you choose the route of no primer, use a rich moisturizer and bring a touch up compact if you’re going anywhere because I found that it lifted on and around the nose, chin and sides of the eye, strangely.

I would say to go into your Sephora and ask them to make you a good sized sample because the sample jars that Sephora has are supposed to fill for a two week use and give it a try because it is also more exspensive the iconic stick formula.

$56.00US, 32 shades  on Hourglass.com

Ambient® Lighting Edit ➡️ Volume 4, I love these little palettes so much, and I know a lot of people don’t understand Ambient® Lighting from Hourglass but its kind of like different color settings on a ring light, cool, warm, etcetera but brought to life, when you understand how to use these powders they can change your makeup game forever and the palettes are a good way to start to collect them – I could do without the hot pick metallic shell though I wish they would have kept it more gender neutral as they do but pink is a guys color also, I guess, just not mine.
