  1. Yes! Great news. Thanks LMdB and to you of course BP for keeping us always posted. I cannot wait to get my hands on shade 1. I'll buy a few just to er on the side of obsessive caution.
    How does the by Terry powder compare to the Burberry one you have mentioned previously?
    Great video as per usual <3

    1. Isn't that the best news? I immediately thought of you when I was told about it! Happy to share! The By Terry is slightly less pigmented than the Burberry (which makes it great for touch ups that are effective but nearly invisible!).

      Thanks for watching...xoxo,

    1. Hi Wendy,

      Thank you ever so much! I am wearing a combination of Tom Ford Spice Cream Shadow and NARS Himalia Dual Intensity Shadow and no eyeliner. I am also wearing the Becca Lowlighter/Highlighter Perfecting Palette and Charlotte Tilbury First Love Blush!
