About this deal

If you are open to a slightly darker option, then I think #4 could be great on you since it has the rosy undertone that you like in the By Terry Light Expert #1. The swatches above are pretty true-to-life in terms of tone and depth…for reference, I wear #7 in the winter months (at my palest). Clogged pores and congestion are forgotten, as the By Terry Cover-Expert Perfecting Fluid Foundation SPF15 is enriched with micro-powders that nurture the skin, as well as improving its appearance.

NW stands for "neutral warm" which MAC feels best describes skin tone that is generally pink/rosy in undertone. slightest bit orange) as well. It just depends on the route you want to go; I would say, however, with us being in the midst of summer, that #4 or #7 will probably work just fine if you feel like your skin tone is similar to mine (as based on the picture found in the link above).

Created by Terry de Gunzberg, this collection is all about making your skin the star of the show. From the best-selling Hydra-Powder to the iconic Baume de Rose, By Terry will get you glowing.

Conceal imperfections and show off a flawless face, with the help of the By Terry Cover-Expert Perfecting Fluid Foundation SPF15, a complexion enhancing makeup. When you have marks that you would prefer to minimise, like scarring, unevenness or blemishes, this is your go to solution. The featherweight formula works to veil the skin with a sheer base, without producing a heavily made up result. Thanks for reading Beauty Professor…how lovely to hear from you! Congrats on your KGD Aqua OC-2 acquisition…it is such a lovely formula. With regards to your question, thankfully, the By Terry Sheer Expert shades are consistent with the Cover Expert shades (there is a direct correlation with the numbering system). In my opinion, #1 and #4 are in the same undertone family (rosy), with #1 being significantly lighter (probably an NW 15-18) than #4 (closer to a NW 20). #3 (about an NC 15-18) and #7 (NC 20-25) are in the same color family (more neutral to warm, without being the

I am very similar in skin tone to you and (as my summer tan is fading) wear KGD OC-2 with a little BE-1 mixed in, Ellis Faas 104 (with maybe a little 103 mixed in) and By Terry in #9 (currently have that on today!). I can top it off with my NARS foundation powder in Santa Fe and it is a perfect match! Oddly enough, the differences between By Terry #7, #8 and #9 are negligible but if you are a true NC 30 (and will be stay that way all winter), then I think you will be just fine with #8 or even #9 (#7 will probably be too light as it is closer to a NC 25). If it helps, #8 is slightly more neutral beige, while #9 is slightly warmer/more golden (though they are both definitely more warm than cool).

Thanks so much for such an in depth review of this foundation, its fantastic stuff! I have a query i was hoping you could help me with. I absolutely adore cover expert, except i have had an awful reaction to it 🙁 i broke out in loads of tiny bumps around my chin and jaw line. I persevered with the foundation hoping it wasn't the culprit because i love it so much and because no one else sounds like break outs have been a problem with it, but they aren't clearing up so i'm having to look for a new foundation. My favorite thing about by terry is the colour of shade 8 matches me perfectly, no yellow or other undertones just perfectly neutral, but not too dark either, it just makes me look healthy. Anyway i love armami's luminous silk for its texture and finish, however the shade i have is 4.5 and is way too light and makes me look ill. I don't have anywhere near me that sells it and so was hoping you could recommend a shade considering the shade 8 in by terry cover expert is ppeeerrffeectt. I'm leaning towards 5 or 5.5 in luminous silk, do either of these come close to the shade 8 in by terry? Thanks 🙂 June 26, 2013 at 11:12 am Thank you, Love Shines!! I have had personal experiences with all of the foundations you list except for the Aveda Mineral Dual Foundation, so I am going to give this my best try! To keep it clear in my head (and to align it with all other makeup brands I use that believe that "warm" is yellow/golden and "cool" is pink/rosy) , I like to think of "NC" as standing for "not cool" (meaning that the makeup has a yellow undertone) and NW as standing for "not warm" (meaning that the makeup has a pinker undertone). To answer your last question, if you tend to have more yellow undertones in your skin (like I do…generally your veins are greenish), then you'd be a "NC" in MAC and a want a foundation that has yellow/golden warmer tones. If you tend to have more rosy/pink undertones in your skin (generally your veins are bluish), then you'd probably be a "NW" in MAC and want a foundation that has neutral beige to rosy beige undertones. Since you like Light Expert #1 (which has a very rosy undertone), #1 (which has a slight pink undertone) could be a good match. #3 is still very fair, but has a subtle yellow undertone (that, in my experience, does NOT oxidize to an unappealing orange or yellow)…it is, however, obviously more yellow than the the pinker #1 but a little closer to the NARS in Finland. I think that #2 might be too light in light of what you already are matched with–it has an almost white cast (as you can see in my images).

NC stands for "neutral cool" which MAC feels best describes skin tone that is generally golden/yellow in undertone. I think that you could either go with a #1 or #3 in the By Terry foundation. To be fair, my swatches are of the By Terry Cover Expert, not Sheer Expert, but I am fairly certain that they are parallel with one another in terms of shade and depth (e.g., the level of coverage is the only difference). You ask a great question…the NC and NW label comes from the way in which MAC classifies their foundations. Since it is a cosmetics brand that is fairly accessible on a world-wide level and their foundations have a consistency across the board in terms of shade, depth and tone (e.g., a NC 20 is generally the same shade in any MAC foundation formulation, whether it be Studio Fix, Mixmaster or Face and Body), many people use NC and NW to explain the shades of other foundations that may not have such consistent labeling (e.g., names like Santa Fe or numbers like #8 don't translate across the brands). The numbers that follow the NC or NW indicate the depth/darkness of the foundation. For example, in general, a NC or NW 15 would be very light for super fair skin, 20-25 for light skin, 30-40 for medium skin and 45+ for darker skin. For an immaculate finish, apply to cleansed and moisturised skin. Use your fingertips, or a brush to correct specific areas and work outwards from the nose for full-face coverage. Follow with powder to extend the effect. Key Benefits This becomes confusing because many other lines associate "warm" shades with yellow and golden undertones and "cool" shades with pink/rosy undertones.
