First Look: The Trancendent By Terry Sun Designer Palettes

by terry sun designer palette swatches




Sometimes, a beauty product is executed with such elan that it is immediately integrated into one's routine; such is the case for the By Terry Sun Designer Palettes (currently available for pre-order at Space.NK and to be available at online at Barney's NY and Beautylish any day now).  They only arrived on my doorstep yesterday and yet, a little over 24 hours later, I can hardly imagine life without them.  Hyperbolic as that may sound, these palettes, each brimming over with six versatile, endlessly flattering face shades, are the absolute best of the venerable By Terry line; richly pigmented, velvety smooth and utterly effortless to apply, believe me when I say that your face has been waiting for them!

Kindly scroll on for more details, a host of swatches and images of the palettes in action as well as the Bottom Line...

Housed in a sleek compact with a breathtakingly beautiful, reflective deco-esque design, the palettes feature six shades of blush, highlighter, enhancer and bronzer, co-existing in a harmonious ziz zag pattern.  Without question, these palettes are visually magnificent, and I am happy to report that their beauty is matched by their formulation and performance.  

To start, the powders are finely-milled with lovely color-payoff.  Each ziz-zag is reasonably wide enough for a brush to pick up a shade individually, though one with an adventurous spirit could also mix and swirl the tones to their heart's content.  The shades are universally-flattering with varying degrees of intensity and diverse finishes (some are matte, some are shimmering and some feel a like a satiny combination of the two for a "best of both worlds" result).  The powders blend easily, look natural and deliver a healthy luminosity to the face that lasts for hours on end without fading, pooling or migrating.  Magnifique! 

Both palette offerings are tremendously versatile and I envision myself continuing to use them separately and together through the spring and summer; having to choose just one would be torturous as they are equally sensational. Consequently, I implore you to give these trancendent palettes your attention. 

As I type this, I've been up for nearly 19 hours and am facing a long teaching day tomorrow, so I shall take the pragmatic approach and let the following images of these palettes speak for themselves...

    1. Oh my- these are lovely! I think for the summer I'll order #1-Tan Flash Cruise although both are equally gorgeous. You look stunning as always- love those Sorel boots too- and it's always such a pleasure to open my email and see a post from you. Keep up the good work!

    4. Better late than never, trying to catch up on my reading :)

      I LOVE the lighter of the two Sun Palettes- Light Tan Vibes! i think it might work well for my pale skin. The colors in the darker one are beautiful. I wonder if I'd be able to pull it off? I hope to see them in person before I order, but they are hard to resist.

      You look gorgeous darling!

    5. When I went to Space NK on line and saw the Flash Cruise palette, I ordered it immediately. Rare for me. And I am so glad I did. The formula, the colors, what a fun and wonderful palette.
