By Terry Cellularose Blush Glacé


When I did my huge haul post earlier this month, these were the items people wanted to see reviewed most of all.

I really wanted to love these.


I saw Laura from Buy Now Blog Later wearing them here and I think she looks just incredible.

They looked like a total winner.  Well despite the ridiculous £38 price tag.

I couldn't have logged onto Space NK and pressed 'click to buy' any faster.

When I opened them I gasped.....

They are quite possibly the most beautiful colours I have ever seen.  Especially the orange 'Flower Sorbet'.



They smell delicious-like summer if that is possible.

The texture is like nothing I have tried before.  It's not a gel, nor a cream, nor a mousse.

They swatch beautifully-I was so excited!


But I have tried everything and I cannot get these to even show up on my skin (inserts very sad faced emoji)

I have tapped in with my fingers,  I have rubbed in with my fingers. I have tried to apply with my fingers with no blending or rubbing to let it just 'sit' on my skin.  I have tried my stippling brush.  I have tried my beauty blender.  I have used a lot of product hoping the colour would eventually build up.  Nada.  Nothing.  The product just disappears into my skin not even leaving barely a hint of colour.

Here I have literally a ton of Flower Sorbet on and as you can see, there's nothing there.


And the Frozen Petal shade doesn't fair much better-again a ton of product here but just a tiny flush of colour.


I am literally distraught because I absolutely love the colours and I want them to show on my cheeks!  I am pale (NW15 in Mac foundation) so I thought these might be acid bright and need some careful blending but there's literally nothing to see here folks.

I have had a little look around the internet and they seem to fair better on olive skinned girls.  I hope they do because the texture and colour in the little glass jar is beyond beautiful.

PS if you do want a neon orange blush then Jen at Vibrant, Vivacious, Veracious has the one for you.

  1. I've just bought the frozen petal and it shows up beautifully on my skin. I am a black lady though, and it is noticeable; it simply is just a lovely flush of colour, and I didn't need to use too much. It's a shame you don't see it on your skin.

  5. Hi Sandy-I know, I think that is what was disappointing-I thought they would be so pigmented! x

  6. Hi -I felt bad giving this a poor review-wanted to love it so much-I thought the stronger shades might fare better but U seem to agree with my assessment .

  7. Frozen Petal is stunning. I actually kind of want to eat it out of the jar, LOL! I'm so sorry it didn't work out on your skin - it's so weird that it wouldn't show up, and that's coming from someone who sheer out her blush almost to nothingness anyway :-P

  8. What a shame, I've tried something from By Terry before and been left disappointed, it's always even more annoying when the cost is so high. They look so nice in the pot though xx

  9. How incredibly disappointing about the pigmentation! I've gotta say they do look beautiful on, just a really nice pinch of colour. But to use so much of a £38 product to achieve that is scandalous xx

  10. Let me know if you do take the plunge Belle! xx

  12. At a first glance these look terrifying, I would of never given them a second look. But they look SO stunning on, I need them both in my life!

  13. Like you I gasped when I saw those pictures... they look amazing, especially the Frozen Petal! But I am quite pale aswell, though not quite as pale as you, so I might see if I can get a tester before buying :/

  17. Hi Laura, funnily enough I have that blush Peach Posh-I must dig it out of my stash. I know what you mean about a denser brush but it shouldn't be soooo hard surely!! I just wanted acid orange cheeks lol!!

  18. I'm so disappointed :( They're so lovely in the jar too xx

  19. I know! The colours are SO lush in the glass jar too! xx

  20. Hello Anne! I've just been to the supermarket buying ingredients for your cornflake cookies!! Hope you had a lovely Easter too xx

  21. I know, disappointing! By Terry and I don't seem to be gelling much-another of their products was in my 'Undecideds' post xx

  22. Thanks so much for the mention, Stacey! These really do look lovely, but such a shame that they're not more pigmented. The Daniel Sandler blushes really are a great option for bold, but buildable colour :)

  23. Hi Sunny, yes really disappointed to be honest-I haven't had much luck with By Terry so far! xx

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, you just saved me £38! The only thing I could suggest was using something really dense like the RT buffing brush or the Sigma F80 and kind of dabbing it on? They sound sucky though! You are pale like meeee. I'd recommend the By terry liquid blushes that come in tubes instead, especially peach posh

  27. I can't believe that they don't show up on you! I had my eye on flower sorbet but if it doesn't show up on you than there is no chance of it showing up on me.

  28. Hey Stacey, aww I'm so sorry to hear these don't show up! If they don't show up on you, chances are they won't show up on MANY. I'm several shades darker so I might as well give up on these now :(

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow Stacey, that sucks... :-(
    Flower Sorbet was on my wish list as well... Thank you very much for your honest opinion!
    Hope you had a lovely Easter!

  30. Oh gosh Stacey so sorry! I'm stunned these aren't showing on your skin, I have about the same skin tone as you so they would be a miss for me as well I guess! Weird since they showed nicely on your swatches. Almost insane price too! Boo! :(
