I know that this product is turning into a cult favourite and all my reviews are based on how well products work for me and my skin and its complexion and so through this review, as well as my others, I hope that people who have the same skin issues as me can benefit from my opinions and that it can help them in their search for products that are going to do the job they need them to do.
So the BY TERRY Terrybly Densiliss Concealer! I have been using the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer which covers my brown under-eye circles for years and although it is my holy grail product for coverage I am always looking for a lighter under-eye concealer that does not accentuate my under eye fine lines. So when I came across reviews for the Terrybly Densiliss concealer which promised great coverage and the targeting of under-eye circles and bags, I was intrigued.
Here is what SPACE.NK say about this product:
It serves as the ultimate eye contour treatment, with a concentrated dose of anti-ageing and firming active ingredients.
Offering modular coverage, it effectively targets under-eye bags and circles.
Eyes sparkle with brightness.
Anti-Wrinkle Serum Foundation, firming perfector.
An utter phenomenon of targeted wrinkle reparation bolstered by Densiliss technology, this under-eye concealer blends the age-correcting and firming benefits of Mimetic Factor with the youthful camouflage of FTC – Flawless Time-Control soft focus complex. This ever-sleek veil of juvenescence comes in the form of a smooth, fluid texture enriched with premium mineral pigments. It flows onto the face like a second skin to deliver a flawless, matte finish and long-lasting complete coverage, even for the most unshakeable of crow’s feet. Bright, refreshed and lifted – a radiance – infused gaze.
For £44 I mulled over whether to take the plunge as it’s an incredibly expensive product but finally, after hearing yet another rave review about how it smoothes fine lines under the eyes, I knew I had to take the plunge and so I ordered it.
When it arrived I was very excited and straight away I began applying my makeup. From the claims, I was expecting no settling of this product into fine lines, no creasing, no accentuating fine lines and making me look older and super coverage of my brown under-eye circles.
*sigh* 😔 It did not give much coverage for my brown under-eye circles and it settled into fine lines and accentuated them. It did not perform better than the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer and performed considerably poor. I was so deflated, especially since I had spent so much money on a product that I was between two minds to invest in. I applied it in different ways such as with my fingers, with the Beauty Blender, which a brush, trying to make this concealer work for me and it simply didn’t, no matter what tool or method I applied it with.
Defeated, I thought I could at least get some use out of it by using it to cover blemishes but it doesn’t do this, either. Ultimately I decided to just use it as a highlighter around my mouth and at the sides of my eyes going towards my temples to brighten up these areas.
I bought mine in no. 4 Medium Peach. The consistency is very light and fluid and I cannot pin-point the scent but it does not smell like makeup generally does. It has what I would call a ‘synthetic’ smell; this is the only way my crazy mind can describe it as 😜 It has a doe foot applicator which is easy to use and its packaging is the same as most fluid concealers.
Even while writing this I am wondering what must be wrong with ME if everyone is giving it rave reviews! Maybe I’m an alien and this is why it doesn’t work for me but does for everyone else 👽

I cannot say that I do or don’t recommend this product because it may work for you if you are not looking for the same results as me but I have to rate this product based on my own experience and if it meets the claims made by the company. Does it offer “modular coverage”? No. Does it offer a good, long lasting coverage? No. Does it settle into fine lines and accentuate them even though it is marketed as not just a concealer but a skin product? Yes. Compared to less expensive concealers who perform better, it is worth the money? No.
I suppose that they hiked the price up because they are also marketing it as a skin product because of the claims of the added serum but in order for any serum to have an effect on your skin it has to be used every day so really this is just a gimmick.
So based on everything I have mentioned this has to be
