I have a love hate relationship with concealer. I love what it does, but I hate that I can never find the perfect shade. Sometimes I just want to rub on some concealer and run out the door instead of spending time blending it with other makeup to make it match. I was shopping on Nordstrom and saw a new concealer from By Terry so I decided to give it a try.

What It Is

The By Terry Stylo Expert Click Stick is an all-in-one, creamy, lightweight concealer that erases, brightens, and contours. It comes in a clickable stick and you get 0.04 oz. for $34.

Results

I ordered the shade Neutral Beige since the other shades seemed too warm and had red/pink undertones. To start, I had several problem areas I wanted to test this concealer on- pigmentation, pimple, and dark circles. When I first swatched this concealer, I was impressed with how creamy it felt, but that didn’t translate when applied on my face. It settled into my dry patches and lines, making my face look so haggard. It didn’t cover my pigmentation problem leftover from shingles, it didn’t cover my pimple, and the concealer dried out my under eyes. I made sure my skin was prepped well beforehand with moisturizer and primer, but it didn’t help. The color match wasn’t good and the options weren’t great either.

The Saem Cover Perfection Tip Concealer easily trumps this By Terry one and at a fraction of the cost! $6 vs. $34?!

Conclusion

The Click Stick didn’t work for me and I wouldn’t recommend it.
