|Above: Behold, the highly covetable By Terry Cellularose Moisturizing CC Cream.|
|Above: The By Terry CC Cream comes in an 1.41 ounce airtight tube with a pump dispenser.|
- Customizable light to medium (and even full) coverage
- A natural skin finish
- Skincare benefits (can’t wait to use this long enough to be able to note these more clearly)
- Foundation longevity
- A luxurious base experience
|Above: I love the pump dispenser…it allows for maximum control and minimum waste.|
Pure botanical technology and color control concentrate, this CC Cream gathers together in itself all the skincare and makeup actions in a single gesture:
-An intense hydration thanks to the Centifolia Roses Native Cells
-A deep glow provided by the Alba Roses Native Cells
-A youth protection released by anti-oxidant Vitamin E
-An absolute comfort via nutri-moistening factors
Its non-oily texture, subtly tinted, blurs imperfections and ideally adapts to each and every complexion. Instantaneously, the skin is unified, protected, luminous, smoothed and plumped.

|Above: Current foundation rotation (from L-R)…By Terry CC Cream in Beige, Eve Lom Radiant Glow Cream Founadation in Linen, Dior Nude Air in 021 Linen and Zelens Age Control Foundation in Beige.|
- Eve Lom Radiant Glow Cream Foundation in Linen (previewed HERE and also available at Neiman Marcus): Linen is definitely the lightest of the shades swatched below but it somehow works with my complexion. This cream formula is “thinner” than the By Terry CC and, while they both create a natural skin finish, it seems to get a bit glowier sooner over the course of wear. I will be reviewing this more closely in the coming days!
- Dior Nude Air in 021 Linen (reviewed HERE and also available at Neiman Marcus and Sephora): Clearly the most “yellow” in the lineup, this foundation is also the most matte of the formulas below. As mentioned in my review, I love how this foundation looks on the skin, but
- Zelens Age Control Foundation in Beige (reviewed HERE): Perhaps most on par, shade wise, with the By Terry Beige, the Zelens Beige shares the same depth (though it is a bit more neutral in undertone that the slightly golden By Terry Beige). The Zelens Age Control has instant medium-full to full coverage whereas the By Terry CC is, as aforementioned, more customizable from a coverage perspective.
|Above: Comparison swatches of foundation in the NC 25 range.|
|Above: All four shades in natural sunlight.|
- 1 Nude: A neutral fair beige for @N/NC/NW 10-15 skin tones…this leans slightly neutral to yellow but will work for all undertones as indicated.
- 2 Natural: A light beige for @ N/NC/NW 20-23 skin tones…this leans slightly neutral to rosy but will work for all undertones as indicated.
- 3 Beige: Light-medium beige for @ N/NC/NW 25-30 skin tones…this leans slightly warm but will work for all undertones as indicated. **My perfect match…please note, there is a big leap from #3 to #4.
- 4 Tan: Medium-dark beige for @N/NC/NW 35-45…this leans quite warm but should work for rich skin tones in this range.

|Above: The By Terry Cellularose Blush Glace All Over Edition in Ice Dream.|
- Worn along the cheek bones as a light bronzer (for fair skin)
- Worn along the upper cheek bones and down the bridge of the nose (for light-medium-dark skin)
- Worn on the apples of the cheeks for a tender rose gold flush (for all skin tones)
This “allover” healthy looking skincare blush, refreshes the skin tone with a “multi-dimensional touch” infusing universal “frosted-aquarelle” for a long lasting glow. The combination of a “marshmallow” water-balm texture and a moisturizing, smoothing, protective formula, soaked with White Roses Native Cells, Vitamin E and Rosa Damascena Floral Water, diffuses unique properties into the skin for a redefined and glowing reliefs.

|Above: By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Nude Lip Color in #2 Innocent Kiss.|
|Above: All five shades of the By Terry Hyaluronic Sheer Nude Lip Color.|
- 1 Bare Balm: A delicate, iridescent baby pink for a whisper of color
- 2 Innocent Kiss: A glowing, light peachy pink (my favorite, hands down!). Incidentally, and, much to my intense delight, this shade reminds me of a deeply-loved and long-discontinued Armani gloss of my college years.
- 3 Nude Pulp: A mid-toned pinky beige with a touch of pearl
- 4 Sheer Glow: A warm, deeper peach with minimal shimmer and maximum shine
- 5 Flush Contour: A rich wine-meets-brown for a modern take on the classic vampy lip
|Above: I selected Innocent Kiss, a stunning peachy pink with a radiant glow.|
