Tom Ford Savage Cheek Color

Tom Ford Savage Cheek Color ($55.00 for 0.28 oz.) is dirty red-brown. It’s hard to describe it, because it looks red, technically, but red brings images of bright, ruby reds to mind, whereas this is a much more muted red with a lot of brown to bring down the intensity. There’s a very faint sprinkling of gold shimmer that’s barely noticeable once applied. MAC Buddy Up is similar but browner. NARS G-Spot is very similar but has a different finish. NARS Oasis is much more plum.

Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra Eyeshadow Palette

Guerlain by Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a limited edition, warm-toned summer quad that features a pale white gold, medium-dark fuchsia, coppery orange-coral, and deep, dark molten brown. It’s packaged in a metallic bronze case with a dual-ended sponge-tipped applicator and full-sized mirror inside.  The packaging feels and looks luxe, and despite its metallic finish, seemed to keep fingerprints pretty well-disguised.
