In the nearly three years (!) that Beauty Professor has been in existence, the iconic French line By Terry has yet to disappoint. Endlessly chic, wildly luxurious and unquestionably timeless, each product is reflective of classic beauty and craftsmanship. This post is dedicated to the latest By Terry Fall 2014 releases...chiefly the Terrybly Densiliss Powder, Terrybly Densiliss Blush, Terrybly Densiliss Primer, Terrybly Densiliss Concealer (also reviewed HERE) and the brand new Rouge Velvet Lipstick.
Kindly scroll on for more details, an insane amount of images, full spectrum SWATCHES of each product and a By Terry look with all products in action as well as the Bottom Line...

The By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Powder (available at Barney's NY and Space.NK) is brilliant. The shades cater to a spectrum of skin tones and, from the luxe metal compact to the iconic quilted embossed surface, this powder is a beauty lover's dream come true. #03 Vanilla Sand is a wonderful match for my NC 23-25 skin and I adore using it as a setting powder (applied with a fluffy brush) and touch up powder (at which point I use the included powder puff). It adds a touch of color to the skin, keeps oil at bay for hours and lends to a poreless finish that makes skin look like porcelain while still conveying a sensationally natural look.
This powder compact blazes new paths in wrinkle reparation and recasts the complexion in a youthful light by smoothing, mattifying and re-texturizing lined skin. Exclusive Densiliss technology brings together mimetic micro-pigments and F.T.C.-Flawless Time-Control-soft focus prisms complex to silence telltale fine lines, camouflage stubborn wrinkles and seamlessly blur imperfections. The luxurious silky powder sets like a second skin for a flawless sheer matte finish that stays put and weathers the storm. The precision face puff guarantees tip-top application and touch-ups every time. Use on bare skin after moisturizing or dust over foundation to set.

The By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Blush (available at Barney's NY and Space.NK) is lovely on every level. I have had my eye on #01 Platonic Blonde for awhile and, upon procurement, can confirm that it is everything I thought it would be and more. This peachy pink shade is simultaneously soft yet vibrant and the creamy texture blends into the skin with a satin finish that practically looks "lit from within." Every shade of this blush is silky, drenched with color and Terrybly long lasting...such a magnificent formula.

The By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Primer (available at Barney's NY and Space.NK) is a delightful gem. This ultra-potent formula smooths onto the skin, virtually banishing visible pores and fine lines upon contact. One pump creates a soft-focus finish that vastly improves the look of bare skin and following with foundation furthers its inherent value since it creates an excellent base to which foundation adheres for hours. I got 11 hours of longevity from my foundation with this primer as a base...consider me duly impressed. Long term usage may result in increased collagen production and strengthen skin and I look forward to monitoring the outcome!
This trailblazing anti-wrinkle primer harnesses exclusive Densiliss technology to deliver the powerful age-repair and firming benefits of a serum with the unifying action of a colourless corrector. Mimetic Factor works to ramp up collagen and fibroblast turnover to fill in wrinkles and strengthen the skin's density. F.T.C.-Flawless Time-Control-soft focus complex provides sheer light-reflecting coverage to visibly smooth the skin's micro-surface and reduce imperfections, guaranteeing results even on age-damaged skin.

The By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Concealer (available at Barney's NY and Space.NK and swatched and reviewed in detail HERE) is all sorts of wonderful...infused with anti-aging, skincare benefits that combat dark circles and puffiness while simultaneously brightening the eye area (without the use of shimmer!), this concealer is marvelous. Shade 03 Natural Beige is a befitting match for my NC 23-25 skin...it is light neutral beige (that leans slightly yellow) that truly brights a lifting light to the orbital area.

The By Terry Velvet Rouge Lipstick (available at Barney's NY and Space.NK) is a creamy, full pigment liquid lipstick with stunning opacity and supreme hydration. I naturally picked the lightest shade, the expertly named #01 Lady Bare, and am beyond delighted by the smooth application and gorgeous nude beige hue. It provides a nude look without washing out the face, wears for hours, adds moisture and fades evenly. I am enchanted with this formula and cannot wait to procure #03 next ; )
