This palette is lovely and the powder s so finely milled that a little goes a long way. I use the Tan and Flash bronzers and add the pinks for a pop of color at the apples of the cheeks. I also use the bronze colors as eye shadows.

Omg!!! I have been drooling over these , particularly the darker one for a few weeks! Man , the price tag is hard to swallow when I have the Tom Ford palette. The swatches look amazing! I really don’t need this. But, I so want it! ?

I feel the same way about the $. I have seen it on Beautylish and they do the payment plan thing like QVC, so that’s an option! Its so gorgeous!

I’ve not done the payment plan with Besutylish before. I have with QVC in order for to get my T3 hair wand and Buttercup hairdryer! I love the option. I may cave if this reviews well.

Good point. I like them more separate so there isn’t a chance of accidentally mixing, or mess. I feel like you’d need a thinner brush to use this or you’d invariably mix the colors.

Remarkably true to pan. Lovely design. Looks like good manufacturing. But, given the ‘unseparated’ construction, what happens to the palette, when one shade is favored and used more? I can see the whole thing falling in on itself. But they are gorgeous, like the Chanel ribbon blush. Does a brush fit easily into the individual shades?

Some reviews have shown a smaller brush used for individual pans (buffed with a larger brush) and other have shown the tip of a regular blush brush or a regular sized flat-topped brush could be used.

Just wanted to chime in that i read from someone else’s review that the colours have a divider between them, so even if you use them up unevenly, they won’t collapse.

I’m so glad you’re going to be reviewing this! I’ve been going back and forth over whether or not to get it, so your review will probably be my deciding factor . . . like it is for a good 75% of my makeup purchases haha. I don’t know how you do what you do, but I’m glad you do it!

Wow, these swatches look great! The colors are beautiful, and very true to pan as another reader mentioned. I don’t need this, but it’s very tempting, will await your review

These palettes are SO beautiful! The chevron pattern is fun but I wonder if it makes it difficult to pick only one color with a brush.
Anyways, my jaw dropped the first time I saw promo pics and I was very surprised these palettes were not getting more buzz online!

Very pretty! And every single shade is true to pan, as well. However, as cute as that chevron pattern is, it would frustrate the living daylights out of me trying to use each shade separately!

I’m very tempted. All the reviews I’ve read have been unanimously positive with a ‘must have’ sentiment. Today is the ladt day of the SpaceNK $20 off $100, so am seriously considering.

Does anyone know if there are other cosmetic promotions over the summer that would allow another opportunity to buy this palette if pass on it for now?

Yes, I don’t know if you will see this, but Beauty.com currently is running friends and family 20% off. They carry By Terry.

I’ve been really interested in this palette ever since I first saw it in suite store. Hopefully it does well but certainly if it doesn’t then at least I’ll save myself some cash! I have to say that the blush colours look especially nice. ?

I have been lusting after those ever since I laid eyes on them! I hope they get good marks and then I can justify buying one or maybe even both palettes!

Dear Christine,
i think about this palette everyday everynight! lol So if you start to review it i think that’s time for me to “adopt” it like a new baby 🙂 (light and tan vibes swatched at Sephora and love at the first sight)

While I love the zigzag design, and the products look lovely, I worry about hitting pan on these. I wonder how well the product stays in the pans when it’s thinner.

This occurred to me as well. This has colors I would use often (a good thing!) but the thing with using items often is what happens when you hit pan? But then again, that price tag for that much quantity of product is also not bad.

I’m very curious about this product and the brand in general, especially for lighter completions. Excited for your review.
