Tom Ford Wicked Cheek Color

More and more, as a reviewer as well as a consumer, I really, really appreciate consistency. I’d rather a consistently poor performing product than one that is sometimes good but other times downright awful–and the very best is when you find a product range that is consistently excellent. Right now, I’m finding this to be true with Tom Ford’s blush range. First with Lovelust, now with Wicked. It has that same soft, smooth, buttery texture that’s dense and ultra finely-milled, so it melts against the skin and looks effortlessly natural. That silky smooth texture enables superior blending–you won’t need to worry about buffing for days; feather-light strokes will gently soften the edges of any application. I love that it can be applied softly or more intensely, but it’s never a shade you have to pack on.

Spoiled by Wet ‘n’ Wild Designated Driver Nail Lacquer

Spoiled by Wet ‘n’ Wild Designated Driver Nail Lacquer ($1.99 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a bright sunshine yellow with slight orange tones and a cream finish. I think the color is so appropriate for the upcoming summer season, but you will need to be a little patient. The polish has a tendency to pull if you do not wait for each coat to completely dry before putting on another coat. Some polishes are more forgiving in this aspect, but with this one, you’ll be waiting about five to ten minutes between coats before you can go for the second. The color coverage is nearly opaque in two coats, but you can see a hint of visible nail line. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, so I think you should be able to do a third coat to get totally opaque color and help hide any application issues.
