By Terry Light Expert Click Brush Review, Swatches

If you've not been hiding under a shell or kept up in work/university, I'm sure you would have heard of the buzz in the beauty scene from By Terry. Makeup artist extraordinaire Terry de Gunzburg has recently launched the By Terry Light-Expert Click Brush (£48) which comes in 6 shades: from Rosy Light to Amber Brown for very fair to tan olive skintones. (They claim they are still working on making one for dark skintones).

The idea for the product itself is a step up from the YSL Touche Eclat. The tube is far bigger, with a slanted kabuki brush on the top. The product is dispensed at 4 points for even application. The kabuki itself is completely detachable from the tube, allowing cleaning and drying, tackling a common problem with click-pen type products. What's more is that you can open up the product and directly see how much product you have left.

The formula itself is dreamy. It has a gel-like consistency that just blends oh-so-well! It dries to a non-drying matte finish and lasts the whole day. 

Depending on which shades you pick up, you can use it as a highlighter, foundation (my shade match is Peach Beige) or as a bronzer such as what I picked up.

I have the shade in Amber Brown (pictured) and I do love it. On my skin tone it is a tan shade with a hint of peach. It looks very natural as a contour shade albeit a little sun-kissed looking than plain ol' brown taupe. I love it.

Shivanee and I love the By Terry Light-Expert Click Brush and we give this four thumbs up. If weren't for the expensive price tag, we wouldn't think twice of repurchasing this amazing product!

The New Face Base from By Terry

Pixi is getting ready for the new season with these Fall essentials!

Pure Fuchsia (in white light)

Plum Berry (in white light)

Cat Eye Ink - 5/5
Cat Eye Ink is a jet black, felt tip eyeliner. It's slanted edge makes it easy to make a wing. This product made it's way to my make up bag. It is easy to use, highly pigmented, and long lasting. Bravo Pixi! (Check out our Fall Look featuring this product)

Endless Brow Gel Pen - 3.5/5
A little goes a long way with this product. Since it is a Gel pen, the formula is thick. It's texture almost feels like the MAC Feline eyeliner. I did not like how sticky it felt on my eyebrows. It was harder to shape and tame my hairs. But if you're looking for an eyebrow pen to last you the whole day (literally), this will be your best friend. (Check out our Fall Look featuring this product)

Pure Fuchsia Mattelustre Lipstick - 3/5
Pure Fuchsia is semi-sheer and semi-pigmented. It is comparable to MAC Madly Magenta in color, and so I have the same issues with regards to the shade of this lipstick. (See MAC Madly Magenta Mini-Review). What I love about this product is it's easy application and gorgeous finish. It's the best of both worlds: matte with just a little hint of shine.

Plum Berry Mattelustre Lipstick - 4.5/5
The it-color for Fall. Plum Berry has the same formula as Pure Fuchsia, yet it in a much more wearable color. I am in love with this lipstick! It makes lips look sweet and juicy. Just be wary of teeth stains.

Pixi Product Review and Swatches (August Box)

It's September! One of my favorite months of the year. Mostly because it's my birth month, but also because it signals the start of a new season: Fall. I will admit I am not a of the cold and gloomy weather, but I do love Fall fashion: sweaters, beanies, boots, and vampy makeup.

Jet black winged eyeliner and dark berry lips are in this season! I also decided to put a little sunshine to this otherwise dark look: gold on my eyelids. What I love about this look is that most of the make up I used can be found at your local drugstore and are reasonably priced.

Product List:

1. Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder - 10 Honey
2. MAC Enough Said Blush
3. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer, Light-Medium - Highlighter
4. Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation Stick, Coconut - Contour
