If there is one product that I have been lusting after for the longest, then it is the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock. I didn’t know if I could justify its high price tag, but after seeing so many people sing its praises, I bit the bullet and am so happy I did, I am in love! This is actually my first ever By Terry purchase, and I actually could have bought the whole line as it looks so beautiful, but thought I would test the water first with this much raved about eyeshadow stick.
The formulation of the By Terry Ombre Blackstar is just perfection, it glides across the eyelid imparting a sophisticated dose of shimmer that manages to look elegant. The Tahitian Black Pearl is what gives the Ombre Blackstar its luminous color that reflects beautifully in the light. Its creamy consistency makes it super easy to apply and blend and once blended, it does not budge. I have been wearing this without the aid of an eye primer (something that I always rely on) and it lasts all day long without creasing, smearing or fading.
The shade Misty Rock is a multidimensional color that is a mixture of bronze, taupe and amethyst tones that can look slightly different in various lights. Because of this, I think it would look beautiful on all eye colors, and I can vouch for its ability to make green eyes look all sorts of wonderful, it really is a gorgeous shade.
I have been wearing this every night on my holiday, just on its own blended across the lid and under the lower lash line. I find that I don’t need any base product or anything in the crease, it looks beautiful alone. For extra definition, it pairs well with Mac Eye Kohl in Teddy, which has been my go-to summer eye look and latest obsession.
I am so impressed with the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock, and it definitely justifies all the hype. I now need to get a collection going, Bronze Moon is next on my list!
