By Terry Light-Expert Click Brush Foundation




Last week I headed down to event at Space NK to check out the new 'Teint Expert' collection from By Terry, the collection boasted to be a revolutionary way to apply your makeup, perfect for people on the go who want to acheive a natural and flawless finish in just a quick swipe of a brush.

The foundation has a illuminating light but build-able coverage with a shade range of 6 mimetic foundations; No 1 Rosy Light, No 2 Apricot Light, No 4 Rosey Beige, No 5 Peach Beige, No 10 Golden Sand, No 11 Amber Brown. The shade range is very small and isn't well suited for extremely pale skin tones or darker ones which I found rather annoying and off putting, fortunately I was wearing fake tan when I got colour matched otherwise there wouldn't of been a foundation which suited me,  the paler shades had pink undertones which just wouldn't work for me, sigh. The makeup artist at the event mentioned if the shades didn't work for you then the product can also be used for highlighting and contouring, which yes it could be but I wouldn't fancy forking out £48.00 for a highlighter or contour, but that's just me.

The kabuki brush head is a rather ingenious little addition, one click is meant to be enough for one application. Now before you start to recoil in fear of germ build-up the head is detachable so your able to clean it without ruining the foundation, it's also quite handy as you're able to see how much product you have left as you can see the cartridge. The texture of the foundation promises to be 'Air-Light' and a second skin which is able to be built on throughout the day, even if you're wearing powder.

The Verdict



By Terry Light-Expert Click Brush Foundation Shade No 2 Review

Two layers of foundation applied. Photo taken with studio lighting, no editing. 
 
The foundation does have a gorgeous texture and left my skin looking diffused and illuminated it leaves behind a slightly tacky feel but is quickly taken away with a dab of powder.  It didn't sink into any pores or fine lines and covered a reasonable amount of my blemishes, however some were still visible and would need concealer to cover them completely.
It had a faint smell of soap but nothing too strong, the foundation lasted most of the day and just needed a few quick touch ups here and there. As for the promised one-click application, well it definitely took me at least two pumps to cover my face but that's possibly down to the fact I have a lot I need to try and cover.  It's a shame this foundation only comes in limited shades as I wont be able to wear it when I'm not tanned which is a real shame. The kabuki brush on the product I found a little bit difficult to get to grips with, it felt as if it needed to be larger as it was taking awhile to apply so I ended up using my beauty blender but did use the brush for touch ups during the day.

Overall I would say if this comes in your shade and your blessed with good skin and don't like to spend too much time on your makeup I would give it a go, although I love the finish and texture of it's not enough to cover my blemishes and if I'm in a rush I'd rather grab a heavier foundation, but for good skin days I will be reaching for this.
