Is it worth the £££? And if so what are the best products? I've heard good things about the foundation, mascara & eyeshadow stick and might be able to find enough pennies down the back of the sofa to buy something....

I use one of the foundations, Cover Expert.

I should give a disclaimer here, I do have challenging skin.

Anyway, I love the colour match for my skin, it's the best I've ever found and I've tried hundreds of different foundations over the years.
I also love the look of it immediately after application - nice coverage but not masky, and it somehow seems to soften the fine lines.
However, that's where the love ends. It turns into an oily and patchy mess on my skin after a couple of hours. I do have an oily t-zone still even though I'm in my 50's. I've tried it with primers, without primers, with different powders, without powder, applied with fingers/sponge/foundation brush and simply haven't been able to get it to work for my skin.

All of that said, for normal or dry skin types I can imagine that this foundation is a winner. I'm not sure that anyone under 35 needs to spend this much money on foundation though.

I love it. Have been an addict since when I used to have to bring it back from France. Do have normal/potentially dry skin and am well past 35.

Have so many favourites it's hard to pick out one, but the one I have in my bag at all times is the Baume de Rose lip balm.

Also love the tinted moisturiser, the hyaluronic eye base, the powder eye shadows, mascara, the hyaluronic sheer rouge (sheer lipstick), and the Serum Terrybly Sun Booster, which I wear on its own without foundation, etc in summer. New liquid blush looks lovely too.

I tend to go into Space NK each new season and get one of their makeup people to show me the By Terry latest products.

I'd love to try the mascara but even I who usually loves wanking off money on frivolities can't justify a 30 quid spend!

The mascara is very good.

I love the cream blush.

I have some foundation in a little compact, you can put it on dry or wet using the sponge at comes with it.

I forgot all about the Rose de Rose Sheer Liquid Blush. How could I?
It's fantastic, the best blusher I've ever used. I have it in a LE called Or de Rose but also sampled it in Coral Rose, which I'll buy when the LE one runs out.
It's so gorgeous, truly gives that 'lit from within' glow.
Again, maybe unnecessary for the young 'uns who still have their natural glow wink
It's very subtle though, which makes it a winner for me who can't wear most blushers without looking like a clown. Darker skin tones may not like it so much. And it has a Marmite type rose scent which does last most of the day. I love it but my niece hated it.

I love the mascara.

Just bought the lift expert foundation (kind of comes in a brush) and not too happy. It went on nicely and the colour is good but after a couple of hours my nose was red and shiny!

I love the sheer expert foundation, one of the only foundations I have repeat purchased, I normally go back to tinted moisturisers/BB creams etc. as foundation is normally a disaster area for me. I have also used the brush foundation mentioned above, I liked it.

I also have bought Teint De Rose and loved loved loved it. I bought that and the foundation with a voucher I had for Space NK so don't know if I could justify the cost if I was buying myself! It's not a moisturiser or makeup, more like a complexion enhancer I suppose. I used it on its own or mixed with moisturiser or make up and it made my skin look amazing. When I first bought it I even used it at night, what a waste!

Yes the Teint de Rose is another favourite of mine too. And the cream blush and Rose de Rose blusher!

CVSFootPowder Sun 16-Jun-13 15:12:30

I shall check out the Teint de Rose. I've also seen their more expensive foundation, it's in a pot. The name escapes me. And I get very confused by all the different concealers. I always hated Touche Éclat, so I tend to get bristly if a concealer is in similar packaging.

polyhymnia Sun 16-Jun-13 16:19:07

Teint de Rose is lovely. . The one in the pot is Éclat Opulent I think - nice but too heavy coverage for me.
She did invent TE which I personally don't like but seems to have perfected the product for her own line - it's much better.

I had a consultation with a ByTerry makeup artist at Space NK before my wedding.
I bought the sheer cover foundation which I love and will definitely re-buy. I also bought the cream stick eyeshadow in a light green colour called Fizzy Jade. Absolutely love the colour. As well as those I got the powder blush in torrid peach - it's good but v similar to Nars Orgasm and more expensive. That said I use it every day and am only just getting to the bottom of the pan now (1.5 years later). The packaging is sturdy and it hasn't broken despite being dropped lots of times.
