By Terry Summer 2014 French Riviera is quite something; it’s all about water colours, stains that focus on natural, well-looking skin that makes you look like you’ve spent a weekend in the country breathing clean air.
Tea To Tan is a water colour bronzer. All the waters in this range contain fruit and tea extracts – and believe me they are exactly the consistency of water so don’t do your make-up after you’ve put your white linen shirt on! Each formula contains microprisms that give a shimmering element that so far I don’t find to be particularly visible on the skin. Tea To Tan gives the lightest stain of tan on the complexion – it’s buildable of course, but bearing in mind that it’s all about a very natural look, it’s probably best to use it at one layer. I think this will come into its own when you’re just back from holiday and want to keep any sun on your face lasting a little longer.
Cheek To Cheek is the same stainy, fluid consistency – this time boosted with cherry extracts – and gives a mild flush of colour to the apples of your cheeks. It’s a flattering, gentle pop that compliments a no make up look.
By Terry Tint To Lip has more shimmer in it that the other two waters; you need to give it a very good shake up before you apply. Tint To Lip really does feel as though you’ve splashed water onto your lips, which on the one hand is a little drying, but on the other makes for a gently stained lip that looks like yours but a bit, er, better!
The first swatch that you see is Tint To Lip (£22); a little bit raspberryish in tone, the second is Tea To Tan (£36) and the third is Cheek To Cheek (£29). However, I’ve swatched more intensely than would show on your face. The pipette dispensers are made to give out the correct amount
I’m in two minds about the By Terry Summer 2014 French Riviera collection; yes, it scores highly on innovation but I think your complexion is going to have to be in top condition to wear it well. There are no hiding places with this range! There are some Aqua Print Eyeshadows (in stick form) but I only have one to swatch so will do it in a separate post.

I really like that the cheek tints come with a pipette to make it easier to get just the right amount although I’m not sure I’m ready for that very sheer approach that they seem to take :o) Xx

I really like the idea, not too sure on if it would work on me though and I’d probably spill everything!
I have been following your blog and i really love it! Thank you for this post! I am really pale and i am always looking for a blush i can wear when i go to the beach and when i go swimming. Something really natural to take away the ghost look of my pale face! lol! I wanted to try Becca’s beach tints but now i want to try By Terry’s Cheek To Cheek(althoughr it looks so fragile to carry around!). But the fact that it is a stain got me intrigued!! Any suggestions of what should i try first? Thank you
I think I would go for Becca Beach Tints first.. or Benefit also do tints. The thing about the ByTerry is that it has some shimmer (needs a good shake up though to get it into the mix) and while it is a mild tint, if you’re really pale, then the shimmer might not work for you.
Thaaank youuu! I am warm undertone medium skin tone pale(if that makes sense) with some hereditrary dark circles! Acctually i was hoping for you to say the Becca tints. Yes, i have tried the Benefit ones but i like that Becca’s products always have something good for your skin(the other reason i wanted also to try by terry) and i have never tried anything from the brand. Thanks again
Hi 🙂 is the cheek tint looks very red when applied on the cheeks? I have medium skin tone and don’t like red blush on me. also is this only comes in 1 color?
Thank you 🙂
