First Look: The By Terry Tropical Sunset Sun Designer Collection 2017…Available SOON!

By Terry #3 Tropical Sunset and #4 Savannah Love. 
I rarely do a preview post in advance of a full-bodied story (which is currently in the works), but I couldn’t resist sharing a look at the ravishing *By Terry Tropical Sunset Collection, especially now that you can sign up for early access to order from Beautylish
At the center of the collection are two new Sun Designer Palettes: #3 Tropical Sunset and #4 Savannah Love.  My love for the original By Terry Sun Designer–especially #2 (reviewed HERE and HERE and HERE) runs deep.  It is the ONLY palette that I have completely used up this past year and, subsequently, reordered.  In turn, you can imagine my excitement at the thought of two more additions to this well loved family. 
Although I will be doing a more comprehensive review in less than a week, here is the quick rundown of both of the new palettes:
  • #3 Tropical Sunset is warm toned, with a spectrum of rich golden hues that range from vibrant papaya to muted tan. 
  • #4 Savannah Love is more neutral in nature, with deep fuchsia and true brown (!) offset by soft beiges and pinks. 
Both are indisputably wearable and both will complement a spectrum of skin tones…they are, in a word, exquisite.

In addition to the breathtaking Sun Designer palettes, there are also eight Stylo Blackstar 3 in 1 Eyeshadow Sticks in the collection…creamy, buildable and extremely long lasting, I find these to have have the same superior performance as my beloved Ombre Blackstars, with a muted and sophisticated pearly cream finish, rather than a shimmery one. 
I have swatches of seven of the eight shades above and am already entirely smitten with the lusciously neutral #4 Copper Crush and effervescent, oh-so-springtime #8 Aqua Mint
The pointed stylo tip allows for precise application and the retractable bullet and integrated sharpener (more on this soon) ensures that you’ll never need a traditional sharpener; additionally, the formula can be used as an eyeliner, eye contour and/or eye shadow for endless possibilities! 

Last look.

Bottom Line: I hope you found this preliminary peek and subsequent swatches helpful; I am completely taken by the beauty of this By Terry summertime collection and–if you feel as I do– implore you to sign up for the Beautylish early access as I predict the palettes will sell out in a flash. 
Which Sunset Collection palette caught YOUR eye?  Do tell! 
Good things ahead, including more on the By Terry Tropical Sunset Collection and a host of new product procurements…I am also headed to the East Coast this weekend; do follow along on my Instagram if you are so inclined ; )

    Dear Beauty Professor, I just wanted to say thank you! I stumbled unto your blog months ago and have since gotten many of the items you featured which are as you represented – high quality & effective (btw, Mohave Ghost is supernatural.). I love them all. There is rarely time these days to get to stores to try product. But your blog and its authenticity, clear descriptions and images work for me. Now I've come to trust you as my go-to beauty expert and it ultimately saves me the trial and error with time and money. Thank you for obviously enjoying what you do and sharing it with others. 🙂

    I was in SouthEast Asia for most of January and can attest that #3 Tropical Sunset does indeed look like the sky during my tropical travels.

    THANK YOU for posting!! The swatches helped tremendously! Do you think the bronzer side in #3 is dark enough for nc42 skin tone?

      My absolute pleasure, Brittany! I was hoping it would be helpful! I am also currently working on the comprehensive post–slated to go live this week.

      I do think the bronzer for #3 will be dark enough…and it can be layered for greater intensity!

    Dear Rachel,

    Do you think these 2 palettes (Tropical Sunset & Savannah Love) can be used as eyeshadows? Are they long lasting? They blend well?
    I appreciate your help!
    Your work is truly amazing! I respect you a lot! Thank you so much! You are very pretty and very special!
    Huge kiss with lots of unconditional love,
