Let me start off by saying that I am not a foundation fan, because try as I might, I find it next to impossible to find a foundation that does not emphasize my textured complexion. Also, for some reason, most foundations tend to sap my skin of moisture, leaving it looking worse than it normally does.

So when I received the BY TERRY HYALURONIC HYDRA-FOUNDATION, I was quite excited to try it out for two reasons. The first was because it was from BY TERRY, a skincare brand that I love, and the second, was because it was infused with hyaluronic acid – a superpower ingredient with amazing skincare benefits that hydrates, plumps and smooths skin, and I had a good feeling about this.

It’s More Than Just Makeup

I prefer to purchase makeup from skin care brands that I trust. This way, I know that the product does double duty and will actually be good for my skin. And it seems that BY TERRY’s founder, Terry de Gunzburg feels the same way, as the brand’s line of makeup is enriched with premium and active skincare ingredients so you no longer have to choose between skincare and make-up, longwear and moisture, coverage over comfort or flawless skin over easy application.

Enriched with hyaluronic acid, it promises an instant boost of hydration to the skin. Its weightless and unique liquid texture allows for buildable coverage from sheer to full and is so easy to use. Because I prefer a sheer, barely there look, I just need one or two drops – from the drop applicator which dispenses the precise amount of product with no mess – which I work into my skin after my moisturiser or mix in with my moisturiser, for a flawless and even toned compelxion.

Final Verdict

Is it worth the price? I think so. I really like the watery texture and the fact that it melts into my skin and leaves it looking flawless and not shiny. I also like that it also doesn’t sap my skin of moisture and I actually look like myself, but so much better.

BY TERRY Hyaluronic Hydra Foundation SPF 30 comes in 18 skin-fit shades smartly created to match every skin tone. With six intensities, from Light until Dark, and three undertones, Cool, Neutral and Warm, this is a foundation that is suitable for all skin types, all ages and all women and retails for $89 at Sephora.
