I can't leave the house without putting blush on my cheeks and Tom Ford blushes are high quality just like their eye shadow palettes. The price is on the high end but this blush is extremely pigmented so only very little content is required. The subtle orange colour does not steal the attention away from my eye makeup.
Truthfully, I have nothing bad to say about this product. I have darker skin and it works beautifully with my skin tone. When I apply it I don't need tons and tons of it so that means it lasts longer, it isn't heavy and the consistency is just magically perfect. This cheek colour gives my cheeks a healthy looking pinkish/natural glowing tinge. I carry this around with me for easy application when ever I feel like it. It doesn't irritate my skin what so ever and I definitely recommend this to people who are looking for that satisfying flushed colour. Tom Ford you are a miracle worker.
I've used and tried a lot of makeup products and brands and I love nothing more than letting my inner creative makeup artist be free, and experimenting with different looks and shades and products. I don't think there is a single makeup product I don't adore, and blush is up there among my favourites. There's nothing better than having a flush of colour on your cheeks and looking illuminated and fresh, and there are a lot of brilliant blushers that I love, Bobbi Brown my particular favourite, but since I tried a Tom Ford lipstick and fell in love with it, I couldn't resist adding this blush to my makeup collection.
I know that $87 seems a little extreme in price for a little compact of colour, but I assure you that it is worth every penny, sometimes, having an expensive makeup product from an iconic brand in my collection, makes me feel like a princess, and what girl doesn't want to feel like a princess sometimes. The colour I got was the most gorgeous, flushed coral shade, which looks a bit bright in the actual compact, but when it's applied to your cheeks it gives the most flattering and healthy looking flush, which brightens up your whole complexion.
After preparing my skin with a double cleanse, serum, moisturiser and primer, I applied a light, even layer of glow boosting foundation to create the perfect, even and blurred base for my cheek colour. I used my big fluffy real techniques powder brush, swirled it into the blush, tapping off the excess, and buffed it up and down my cheeks, just below my cheek bone, in round motions in an upside down number three pattern, and went over it carefully, making sure it was blended properly with no obvious edges or creases.
Results were amazing, I had the most natural looking flush and glow to my cheeks, the colour was so true to the compact but not too bright or garish, and it really brightened up my whole face in a matter of minutes. It lasted all day long until my evening cleanse and I needed only the tiniest amount, so even though I've been using it every day for three weeks now, it barely looks used, and the compact looks so pretty and luxurious looking on my bathroom vanity or makeup bag, and it works for every occasion, formal or not.
I am really falling in love with Tom Ford makeup products and I simply can't wait to add more to my growing collection. They're effective and really do what they promise, with colours that truly match any skin tone and are shade perfect, and since you only need a tiny amount, it lasts ages and is worth the more expensive price tag. Try it yourself and feel the power and confidence you get from using a professional product from an iconic brand. It's why I love makeup and the beauty it gives me inside and out.
I love to wear blush on my cheek bones but the blush must blend easily and feel silky smooth on my skin. I absolutely love the Tom Ford cheek colour. Their shades are natural blush tones ( not too pinkish or orange as i have found some), it applies and blends easily (with no light powder residue falling off the brush) and stays without being gluggy. It is definitely my number one choice for a blush.
