It’s Not Terry’s, It’s Mine.

Hands off, Terry – your sheer-expert foundation might be ‘by’ you, but now it’s all mine!

Absolutely stonking beauty product of the week prize must go to By Terry’s Sheer-Expert Foundation. It’s so ridiculously glowy, but it has no shimmer in it at all. Wearing it is like being lit from within – look at my photograph! I must have dribbled some onto my neck (such was my excitement!) and can you see how it quite literally glows against my skin! Amazing, and I most thoroughly recommend. It applies beautifully, leaves no residue or ‘dewiness’, yet makes skin look radiant and bright. If you want a foundation that leaves a healthy glow, but have always been put off by richer or oilier textures, then this one will be perfect for you.

There’s a heavier version, called Cover-Expert, that has more coverage, (the name gives that away, possibly…) but the sheer version is just utterly right for me – it has that no make-up look that we all strive for, but with added mega-watt glow! The foundations have only just been released (I think that they are only in the UK at the moment!) but I can see them becoming cult beauty products.

As with all By Terry cosmetics, the foundations are impressively hi-tech, with all-new formulas that do various magical things to the skin. 35ml costs £44, so this may be one to have for special occasions or ’emergency’ days, but it really is worth the investment. Try it out next time you’re passing SpaceNK!

You can see (or order) it here at SpaceNK online:  BY TERRY  (For your reference, I wear shade 9, but could also get away with an 8.)


  1. Hi Ruth i`m so interested in these fundation after watching your videos. But I wanted you to help me with the choice of tone … I can not prove it .

    I’m very pale, so far the best for me at the moment is Skin Fond de teint foundation Bobbi équilibrant 2 sand . Thank you so much and congratulations for your amazing channel

  2. Hi
    You said you would take shades 9 in this- for reference do u know shade u are in Nars sheer Matt as i am trying to order online (quite impossible) as we do ot get By terry here- thank u!

  3. Thank you Ruth for your enthusiastic review! I gave it a try on january and now I’m at my third tube… I’m in love with this foundation, I use #1, the fairest shade and my skin simply glows. Sometimes I wear it over Guerlain Météorites Base de teint but it’s perfect on his own too :)

  4. Hi Ruth
    Is this suitable for oily skin types?Thanks

  5. I just bought this in shade 9, as I have the same skin colour as you (chanel B20/30 mac nc20/25) I think I could wear a shade lighter at my palest and go up if I was more tanned. It blends away so easily that its very forgiving if its not bang on. Most amazing foundation, yes its expensive but so worth it. I have very dry skin and foundation never sits correctly on my skin, and always clogs in open pores on my cheeks, not with this! Its beautiful and you really cant tell you are wearing anything even with the cover expert! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
    Thank you for the recommendation Ruth
