As you can see, the texture is light and glossy, just like a gorgeous serum, and it is quite the dream.

My Review

So I have tested this out for a day (approximately 8 hours) and I am really pleased with this. I have actually made a Youtube video that you can check out which show application, and also how it looked after the eight hours with no wear test. I set it lightly the By Terry Hydra Powder* which I tend to use most days anyway.

If you love glow, you will love this foundation. It feels like skincare and it melts into the skin effortlessly. Once applied, it literally feels like you’re just wearing a serum. It doesn’t feel tacky or sticky, just smooth and plump.

As the day goes on, I find it becomes glowier and shinier in all the right places. It’s dewy and beautiful and although it gets dewier after a day’s wear, I didn’t find it rubbed away around the nose, like some hydrating foundations can.  There was a tiny bit of wear on the jawline, but nothing very noticeable.

I still loved the way my skin looked after wearing it for the day with no touch ups. It just looks like you have naturally glowing skin, and does a great job of smoothing out skin texture and concealing imperfections. You can use a small amount for a sheer coverage, or go in with a lot more product for a more skin-perfecting, fuller coverage, and both effects look beautiful.

Before & After Photos

After I tested for the day to make the video, I actually took it off and applied it again for these before and after photos. My skin is a little red in the ‘before’ due to the quick removal of makeup so that I could start all over again!


This time I used a bit more product to show it with more coverage. I actually like the finish more with extra product applied and it demonstrates that you can definitely build this up to fuller coverage.

After BY TERRY Hyaluronic Hydra Foundation 200N

I love it with a lighter coverage and also when I use more for a fuller coverage. It’s juicy skin both ways!
