I bought this as an oil-free primer, and it does its work to me. It is good for my combination skin, and doesn’t cause any break out in the T zone.  I also like the natural coverage, which can be used as a tinted moisturizer. I don’t mind its fragrance, which is actually pretty pleasant to me. I bought the #2 shade “Nude”, which is okay for me (especially summer time); I might try #1 next time. If you like a glowing and healthy look, definitely try #2!

It is very good, air-light, no breaking out, pleasant smell and seamless glowing in a good way! But it doesn’t have strong coverage (concealer might be needed). Together with a thin layer of loose powder, the makeup lasts all day long. Well, as a foundation, it is insanely expensive. It is not fair to say this one is better than Dior Nude. I used at least 3 bottles of Dior Nude (#23, peach) so far, and the reason I switched to by Terry is I wanna try new things :). I use by Terry plumping fluid foundation #4 (golden praline), which is a little bit darker (or golden?) than Dior Nude #23. Sometime I mixed them together at 1:1, which gave perfect shade! However, both of them work wonderfully.

It is a great concealer, way better than YSL Touche Eclat! Thanks to its light weight (but full coverage!), it doesn’t crease at all! I don’t have dark circles, but from reviews, this concealer is extremely good for dark circle coverage. I use shade #2, cream.

It lasts definitely longer than most lip gloss. After drinking starbucks and kissing my son many many times, I still had the color and gloss! No-drying, not sticky at all! It is the best lip stain (with glossy shine) I ever had! Strongly recommend! I use shade #6 Camel Croisiere , slightly orange tone.

The Naked2 has several nice matte shades (especially the highlight for under brow area), and even shimmery shadows are not over the top! My Naked 1 and 2 work well together! From over 1000 reviews (and close to 5 star overall review!), you will know it is a good product!

Here is a silly iPhone picture showing my simple makeup: by Terry & Dior mixed foundation + eye brow + Nars blush (sin) + YSL lip stain

 About 5 hours later (I drank coffee, milk and water… kissed my son’s cheek…. and took a nap) — color is still there with gloss 🙂 (ignore my dry patches)

    Do you like the Naked 2 better than the first?I followed your blog! I just started mine, it'd be great if you could check it out. :)

    I like them both. Well maybe Nake2, more? It has matte colors!

    If I were you, I will get Naked 2! It functions as good as, if not better than, naked 1. I especially like its package. The package of Naked 1 is velvet like, which gets dirty look very easily~

    Yea, I hate when packaging gets dirty. That may be a huge selling point for me. 🙂 thanks.
