What does the By Terry Glow Expert Duo Stick do better than any other sticks on the market? First, it is an innovative 3 in 1 beauty tool. Specifically, the Duo-Stick does double and triple duty, Second, it combines two shades, a blush with either a bronzer or a highlighter. And Third, it comes with an integrated application brush built right into the stick. Therefore, it is the perfect “on the go” cheek palette. Most important, for her Spring 2018 collection Terry added three new limited edition shades to her highly successful Duo Sticks Collection. ( To see the entire Duo-Stick Collection CLICK HERE) Each of the Duo’s sells for $48.
New By Terry Glow Expert Duo Stick Packaging
Really, the Duo-Stick is not your ordinary twist up, twist down tool.
To illustrate, the packaging features a split between either a blush/bronzer, or a blush/highlighter. As a result, you have two luminous shades that work together or individually. In addition, a tightly packed, bristled contour brush is included on the other side of the stick.
It is a great little brush for “on the go” blending and buffing the color into place.
New By Terry Glow Expert Duo Stick Formula
The Light-reflective micro-spheres suspended in the silky gel-cream formula create a healthy, radiant, and natural look. In addition, glow-reflecting prisms enrich the formula.
The formula has an ultra-creamy texture that feels like silk.
Because the formula goes on smoothly, it is easy to apply on the go. At first, the formula has a strong perfume scent. The duo does create a multi-dimensional sheen, and it includes very subtle holographic prisms.
New By Terry Glow Expert Duo Stick Shades
There are three new, limited edition duo’s in By Terry’s Spring 2018 Collection. No. 5 Beach Glow, No. 6 Copper Coffee, and No. 4 Cream Melba. I purchased No. 5 Beach Glow.
No. 4 Cream Melba
The New Cream Melba dual sided stick has a pearl highlighter on one side and a rosy blush on the other, designed to create a holographic strobe effect.
No. 5 Beach Glow
The New By Terry Glow Expert Dual sided stick in Beach Glow has a rosy blush on one side, and a sun-kissed bronzer on the other, designed to give a holographic strobe effect.
No. 6 Copper Coffee
The New Copper Coffee dual sided stick has a tan bronzer on one side and a coffee bronzer on the other, designed to give a chiseled holographic strobe effect.
New By Terry Glow Expert Duo Stick Application
What makes this stick a win, win is that the two luminous shades can work together or work separately. Therefore, Any way you choose to apply the shades works! First, you can sculpt and shape your face in one single sweep of the stick.
Next, you can glide the stick along your cheekbones for a double-toned effect. Because I am tan, I’ve been wearing Beach Glow in this way. As a result, the multi-dimensional effect is beautiful.
In addition, you can angle the stick to it’s side to apply a single shade.
To illustrate how to highlight with the duo, angle the stick and apply the sheer color across your cheekbones; chin; brow bone; bridge of nose; and Cupid’s bow. In order to contour, use the pigmented half of the stick to create a sculpting effect. Finally, blend the shades in a circular motion using the brush on the other end of the stick.
Above all, the design of the stick is ingenious. Because the duo stick pulls double or triple duty, this is the ultimate travel-worthy cheek palette. On the one hand, if you are looking for an intense, glowing, strobe, try a more intense highlighter. (I suggest the new Farsali Jelly Beam!) On the other hand, Glow Expert Duo Stick is the perfect choice if you want a lightly pigmented, natural looking, multi-dimensional sheen.
