The Best & Worst | Tom Ford Cheek Colors (2017)

Tom Ford Cheek Colors
Tom Ford Cheek Colors

Here’s a look at how well the reformulated Tom Ford Cheek Color ($60.00 for 0.28 oz.) did, now that I’ve reviewed all the shades in my possession! (There’s one missing, which I will review as soon as I have it!) For 2017, Tom Ford reformulated this powder blush formula, and the new formula is described as “layers of possibility, from a sexy glow to a more dramatic, color-rich look” (that sounds like “buildable”) that is supposed to apply “with the comfort of a cream.” Overall, the texture is thinner, finely-milled but drier than the original formula, and the shimmer has become finer and less apparent through many of the new-old shades. The formula was still fairly blendable to very blendable and particularly long-wearing with semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation.

Tropic Cool Times Nine

MAC Tropic Cool Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows in an assortment of yellow, green, and blue. It’s a bolder, brighter set of shades, but it also had a very smoldering edge with the deeper blue and bluish-gray inclusions. As you might expect, the yellowy shades need a primer to look as they do in the pan, but I also had some trouble with two of the darker blues.
