Scintillate

Tom Ford Beauty Scintillate Shade & Illuminate Cheeks ($80.00 for 0.49 oz.) includes a cream highlighter and cream blush. You get plenty of product in the compact, but the product itself is just that type of product that for someone will be essential and for many others, totally unnecessary and almost am “I don’t get it” kind of product. Both shades are sheer and barely-there with a dewy finish that never sets or dries down, and as a result, the wear was between three to four hours. The formula is, however, touted as “super sheer,” so the coverage level is as described. Despite never setting, they didn’t feel tacky, just a little emollient to the touch, and can handle a powder being patted on top (though the dewiness went away completely). I think this will be best for someone who doesn’t need their makeup to last long, has drier skin (perhaps it would last longer), and/or wants a sheerer base for their powder blushes.

Tom Ford Cheek Colors

A long-time favorite has been reformulated: Tom Ford Cheek Color ($60.00 for 0.28 oz.) is now available in eight shades (I have seven to share with you), though the shades that you may recognize are not really similar to the same-named shade that was available before. In general, the new formula is thinner, less dense, has a lot less shimmer.

The Details

Shade & Illuminate Cheek | $80.00

Tom Ford introduces Shade and Illuminate Cheeks in two vibrant, yet sheer color palettes. This contour blush duo of highlighting and shading creams is integral to Tom Ford’s face philosophy. The easily blendable formula is designed to make dimensional color contrasting of the cheeks remarkably simple. The pearlescent highlighting shade brightens and draws light to skin, to amplify cheekbones and lift the face, while the sheer vibrant blush tone deepens and defines for the perfect flush or contour. Each color combination enhances a range of skin tones and can be applied with the Shade and Illuminate Brush and blended with the Cream Foundation Brush.

  • Scintillate Peach, copper
  • Sublimate Dusty rose, plum

Shade & Illuminate Lip | $60.00 | Limited Edition

Shade and Illuminate Lips premieres in six limited-edition shade pairings designed to flatter a range of skin tones. Two shades, one light and one dark, create a subtle to dramatic ombré effect, shaping lips with high pigmentation and revolutionary adherence. The formula, with a velvety matte finish, features emollient oils and a blend of polymers that create rich color and deep dimension. Shades span from nude, mauve, and pink, to red and burgundy, and may be easily applied using the provided dual-ended applicator, featuring a sponge and a lip brush.

  • Saboteur Berry, plum
  • Impulse Rose, plum
  • Automatic Beige, brown
  • Tantalize Coral, deep coral
  • Possession Pink, deep pink
  • Nikita Red, burgundy

AW '16

Tom Ford AW ’16 Eyeshadow Duo ($60.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a neutral duo with a beige and brown, both shimmery shades, housed in small compact. The formula can be used both wet and dry (it is similar to the formula used in Nude Dip, and the colors are reminiscent of the same quad as well, but the texture of these is firmer and a little thinner overall). Both shades were nice, but dupable so I’d say that if they’re shades you don’t have and want, you’d be better off buying a quad, which will run you $82 but contains over double (0.35 oz.) the product.

Lust for Life

Tom Ford Lust for Life Shimmer Shot ($45.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and fine, golden pearl. It’s supposed to be a sheerer, liquid highlighter that can be used alone on the high points of the face or mixed in with liquid foundation. Most liquid highlighters tend to be on the sheerer side, like this one, which was semi-sheer, moderately buildable, but the thinner, more water-like texture made it very easy to sheer out further and spread across a large area of skin with minimal color impact and subdued, fine pearl.

The consistency was thicker than pure water, but it never felt heavy on the skin. When I patted it onto cheeks with my fingertip, I saw some color–mostly warmth–and a natural sheen that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The product never fully dried down but wasn’t tacky and did not seem to migrate too much (it wore nicely for about seven hours)–I looked dewy without looking oily. I felt like there was more shimmer to it than some of the sheerer liquid highlighters on the market (Giorgio Armani, Becca) but was still a finer size so that it didn’t look like big chunks of sparkle on the skin. It incorporated well with liquid foundations, though the effect was even more subtle that way (I couldn’t even capture it on camera, but it gave my foundations a slightly dewier finish).
