Nice, hydrating and very natural looking
Tip: If you have pretty good skin already, go with this if you're trying to decide between this formula and the Cover Expert, which is a much heavier coverage.
I really like this foundation and I've been using it for a few years, now. I love that it stays put and adds a sheer glow without having any shimmer or glitter in it. It just looks like my own skin, but more even and bit more radiant.
You don't need very much....a pea sized amount is more than enough for an entire face, all over. If you only need to do the nose and cheek areas, this tube can last a good four or six months, even if you use it every single day, so it's not as pricey as it seems.
The only reason I didn't give it a full five stars is that it's pretty much a silicone bomb. It has SO much silicone in it that it is prone to rolling when layered over primers or when used with foundation brushes (I like to use my fingertips, anyway, but I know some people prefer brushes.)
I don't react to the silicone and my skin isn't oily, so I don't have a problem with it. But I reserve my 5 star reviews for universal products and I think if you have oilier skin or are very sensitive, this could be problematic for you.
Bottom line: Great, sheer coverage that evens out fair to good complexions. A little silicone heavy, so if you have oilier skin, you might find this too slippery by midday.

Less is more
Less is more in covering pores and scarred, ageing skin. This foundation doesn't sit in pores or lines and creates a blurring effect of these imperfections. The inky time I had an issue with the product was when I was very dehydrated from alcohol consumption! Other than this I look much more natural and my skin not covered in a cakes layer that really just exaggerates what you want to cover. Recommend this for oily, combination and ageing skins.

This product is sub par at best. Firstly By Terry have a rubbish shade range, all very pink in undetone, despite the colour swatch on the SpaceNk website looking yellow (shame on SpaceNk for that). Secondly it was very dry and powdery on the skin, even with the an emoiliant, dewy moisturiser and a serum underneath! Lastly the price, which I wouldn't have paid an incling of attention to had the product been good. All in all, not a great offering from By Terry.
