It has been a while since I've reviewed a blush, or even By Terry for that matter. I've been wanting to buy Apple Glow, but my local counter was sold out :( So I decided to try out the other shades. Ginger glaze wasn't a color that I thought "it's GORGEOUS", but my go to person sold me on it when she applied it on my cheeks.
Size and packaging: 3 grams or 0.1 oz. Pretty straight forward packaging: gold, screw top packaging.
Formula and texture: It's like a whipped, almost a mousse like texture when you slide it against your fingers. It easily glides onto your fingers and onto your cheeks. I much prefer these to Bobbi Brown pot rouges because the texture is so much nicer. The finish is satin-matte and it doesn't dry down to a powder finish. Basically you apply it onto your cheeks with your fingers and after several seconds, it sets. The biggest surprise about this blush is that it doesn't move. I didn't think it would last a long time on my face because of the mousse like texture. When it dries down, it doesn't look flat at all, but it does give a nice subtle radiance (no glitter/sparkle, I swear). :)
Scent: it does have the slight signature By Terry rose scent.
The color in of itself looks boring, yet borderline ugly when I saw it in the pot. Yet, when applied, it's glorious golden radiance :D
Onto the photos :D

Is this worth having?: I'm unsure as to how it would look if you're really pale, but it's definitely a color for medium to darker skintones. Keep in mind that my inner arm is around NC20. I like it a lot since it gives my cheeks a nice golden sheen :)
