By Terry Riviera Collection Summer 2014 – Tea to Tan and Cheek to Cheek

By Terry gets my vote for constantly thinking out of the box. I picked up the Cheek to Cheek in Cherry Cruise when it first came out and just added the Tea to Tan in Bronze Bay. These are must haves for all beauty lovers. I bought mine both from SpaceNK.

What I love about the Tea to Tan is that this is the most natural bronzer effect you will ever get. The awkward drop applicator aside, I simply put a drop or two in my palm and dab a synthetic, densely packed brush into it and sweep along my cheeks, forehead, down the centre of my nose. Buff it in and I’m looking healthy and sun kissed. No Jersey Shore here. As the name says, just the Riviera baby! You can go back in with more product and build, but it is a subtle and soft effect that just oozes chic. This can also be added to any foundation to add warmth. Also do not forget to shake to disperse the pearlescent goodness that collects at the base, yet does not translate into a glitter ball at all on the face.
The Cheek to Cheek is a strawberry stain that gives a youthful flush to my cheeks. Again you cannot overdo this product. You can layer over the Tea to Tan. The stain effect is so nice for hot days as it looks light and fresh on my skin. Both products have a translucent quality and allows for your natural skin tone to shine through. They both have a distinct By Terry rose scent. I think it’s pretty. By Terry also likes to add skincare benefits and these two are no different. Packed with ingredients that have antioxidants and also help to detoxify and revitalise are an added plus for me! High end brand can no longer do makeup without adding skincare benefits- its a trend thats here to stay.

These do not have any real staining qualities and come off with ease at the end of the day. I have been using mine in our winter months, so if you are in the throes of summer these would be even more perfect for you. These are limited edition (drat!) as far as I know, so do not wait to long before buying them.

  1. Jersey Shore LOLOL!! The dry down of these look gorgeous, especially that cheek to cheek…just the kind of color I love!! Have you by any chance tried mixing the 2 together?? Hmmmm…hmmmm ha ha 🙂 It's good to know these aren't super staining. That's one thing I didn't like about the Armani Summer liquid blushes – so hard to get off my fingers after application!

  2. Hi Gummy!- yesterday I layered the two – I guess I could just do a drop off each to expedite it! so……….. my palm of hand that I use as "bowl" is super stained just not my cheeks or face! so yes just like the Armani summer liquid blushes! But my hands typically look like a artists palettes after makeup application any way with multiple swipes of liner etc.!! lol
