By Terry Crayon Khol Terrybly in 9 Royal Navy

I popped my By Terry cherry the other week. By Terry is a super super high end brand that you can buy at Mecca Cosmetica, but it's really obscenely expensive. While I was drooling over the eyeshadow pencils in Mecca while I was in Sydney, I saw this eyeshadow pencil and I had to have it!



These By Terry Crayon Khol Terrybly come in 11 shades and they cost a whopping $48 each! I only took the plunge because this is my perfect shade of eyeliner... a vibrant royal blue! I have been looking for a decent vibrant royal blue liner for a long time, and the best I could find is Waveline by MAC, and compared to this liner, Waveline looks ridiculously dull!

This is in the shade 9 Royal Navy and this is designed to be a highly pigmented emollient pencil that glides onto the eyelid or waterline. This is waterproof and is designed to last 8 hours.

So what do you get for your $48? Well, you get a 12g pencil and a sharpener. I personally would prefer to have just the pencil at a lower price, but hey... that's me.

The end of the pencil shows a band of colour that is a pretty accurate representation of the shade.

The pencil itself is super smooth and almost feels like you are drawing with a paint rather than a pencil. It also is completely waterproof and budge proof when it sets. If you are a noob with eyeliners and want a gel liner effect while using a pencil, then this might be the eyeliner pencil for you!

I am impressed with the bright gorgeous shade, the pigmentation, the smoothness of the pencil, the longevity (it lasted me all day without fading or wearing off), and it's waterproof!

Below is a photo I posted on Instagram of me wearing the liner.

Even though I nearly cried when I handed over a $50 note and received a $2 coin as change, I am so impressed with this pencil and I definitely don't regret the splurge!

Would I go and buy these in every shade? Hell no! These do come in the standard shades (black, brown etc), and if I was made of money I would be happy to replace all of my current liners with this range, but in my current financial situation I definitely wouldn't bother spending nearly $50 on a basic eyeliner. If you can find a unique shade that you are in love with then I would highly recommend the splurge.

  1. This is an absolutely stunning shade, I love how bright it is! I don't think I'd ever be able to spend that much on an eyeliner though.
