Tom Ford Softcore Contouring Cheek Color Duo

Tom Ford Softcore Contouring Cheek Color Duo ($77.00 for 0.70 oz.) contains a highlighter and blush. Though pricey, as far as Tom Ford goes, the duo is actually a bit of a steal–it contains 0.70 oz. of product, which is over double the amount of product contained in a Cheek Color single (0.28 oz.), and those retail for $55. There was some confusion in regards to which duo was named what, but I purchased one of each direct from the Tom Ford Chicago boutique, and Softcore (featured in this post) is the darker, plummier shade, and Stroked is the lighter, more coral shade. I wish Softcore’s blush color was cooler-toned–more berry than plum–and its highlighter shade pink-toned so that the duos would be more distinct. (I also like the idea of giving a cool and warm-toned option for better coverage of the spectrum of skin tones.) The quality of both shades was nice, long-wearing, and blendable.
