Summer 2014: Sheer Stains By Terry

Oh, this is good. By Terry released a series of ‘stains’ for the Summer, that are light on texture but heavy on color. It’s the perfect way to get great pigmentation without wearing a ton of product. I saw these a few weeks ago and fell head over heels in love. The ‘Tea to Tan’ is a liquid bronzer stain, Cheek to Cheek is a blush stain, and the Tint to Lips are both lip stains. These can be worn as a plain stain, or ‘shaken up’ for a shimmer version. Just genius. Two products in one bottle… AND the price point is much lower by By Terry standards. Fabulous.

I photographed three of the products… the fourth is coming in a separate post.



Tea to Tan Watercolor Bronzer (Bronze Bay)

Tint to Lip Watercolor Lip Stain (Pink Palace)

Tint to Lip Watercolor Lip Stain (Beach Game)

I swatched Beach Game and Pink Palace shaken, so you can see the intensity of the pigment and the shimmer factor. Tea to Tan is not shaken. It stains my skin in the most subtle of ways… giving me a ‘glow’ without looking like I actually applied product.

These should be used directly on the skin (using fingers or applicator in lip products) to stain, then layered for intensity. You can layer foundations, blushes, lipsticks and lip glosses over them and they still shine through beautifully. These are the most innovative and practical summer makeup products I’ve come across so far this year.

Cheek to Cheek is coming in a separate post.
