By Terry's Territory

If you were to ask me what I've been wearing on my eyelids recently then the answer is pretty simple, By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock. Yes, I've jumped on the bandwagon and purchased the crème de la crème of eye-shadow sticks (they're cream, get it?).

Considering I now work only a hop, skip and a jump away from a Space NK, I think it's quite the achievement that there's only one of these that I'm reviewing today. 

Give me time though, I will surrender soon enough! 

Just look at that packaging - who doesn't want a selection of those lined up when it comes to doing your makeup?

 They're pricey at twenty-nine pounds a pop, but all is justified by the foolproof formula; when I say it's smooth, it's smooooooth - imagine running your fingers along the finest silk from China, just that but in a cream eyeshadow form that glides over lids just as beautifully. 

I probably should of thought twice when swatching this on my hand due to the winning lasting power it has. All day: no primer, no creases! 

The shade 5 Misty Rock is a glowing bronze with hints of taupe which leave an almost wet effect with the fine shimmer that's it's laced with. The perfect shade to take you from day to night, a smudge from the bullet in the corners will give a bit more intensity to a taupey, smokey eye which suits all. 

If you're near a By Terry stand than promise me you will go and take a look at these! 

How long do we think it's going to take before I go back and decide between Blonde Opal or Black Pearl? My heart and bank balance goes out to anyone who has managed to find a dupe for these bad boys.


  1. Packaging is gorgeous!! X

  2. I managed to resist so far, but every time i think I am safe, a post like this pops up...

  3. It wont be long Linda! Let me know which colour you go for when the temptation comes to much. Xx

  4. I will, but these bronze shades are likely to make their way into my possession first.

    No creases, really? If so I'm so game on!

  6. Somehow it stays put all day! Completely amazing. Xx

  7. I've wanted this for ages, it sounds so amazing the shade is gorgeous! I just wish I could justify spending £29 on one eye shadow!

  8. If I didn't want one before, you're description definitely sold it. I actually hadn't heard much about these. I love my Laura Mercier caviar sticks but even those (which are pricey) are more affordable that the by Terry version. By Terry isn't carried here, unfortunately, so I'd have to order online. No divine swatching experiences. :-)
