By Terry Hyaluronic Blush in Blushberry

I tend to associate By Terry with lovely (if very expensive) foundations and lip products, so when I was introduced to this cream blusher at a recent event I sat up and took notice.  Like many of Terry's products, it contains Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate the skin whilst adding a pop of colour.

A tiny, tiny dab is all you need - the pigmentation in this stuff is intense.  Blushberry is a warm berry shade (surprisingly), with a good smattering of golden shimmer.

You can see the pigmentation when that tiny dot is spread out a little.  The texture of this blush isn't really creamy, not is it a gel - it has a velvety, silky texture which speaks to a lot of silicone in the formulation.  It glides onto the skin, blends easily, and holds well.

Blended out it looks far less scary - a gentle wash of berry (almost leaning towards a reddish tone) with a hint of golden sparkle.  The texture on the skin is very natural - there's no shine or residue at all.

And here I am wearing it with the lovely By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Glow lipstick I wrote about a little while ago.  For such a strong colour, the blush doesn't really make for a strong cheek if applied with a light hand - it adds warmth and colour, but doesn't shout LOOK AT ME I'M WEARING BERRY BLUSH like some others I could mention.

At £28, it's certainly not cheap - but given that a bog-standard MAC blush is £18 nowadays, I don't think the extra £10 for a gloriously silky texture and really beautiful colour is too much to pay.  Particularly given that it'll last so long, thanks to the high pigmentation.
