Tom Ford Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo

Tom Ford Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo ($80.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a limited edition duo of highlighters (I got confirmation yesterday). You can still pre-order from Saks or place a back-order at Nordstrom. If you liked formulas like MAC In Extra Dimension Skinfiishes, Estee Lauder Gelee, or NARS Dual Intensity, you’ll like this one. It has that same baked-gel-powder type of powder. I think this could have been an excellent permanent addition to the Tom Ford range, so I hope the brand will reconsider making this permanent (and also coming out with a few more combinations!). The texture of both shades was incredibly soft, smooth, and finely-milled, while the product provides a noticeable sheen that stops just before it emphasizes the skni’s natural texture.

Charlotte Tilbury Medium/Dark Filmstar Bronze & Glow

Charlotte Tilbury Medium/Dark Filmstar Bronze & Glow ($68.00 for 0.52 oz.) is a new, permanent take on the often-raved about Filmstar Bronze & Glow that’s deeper and warmer. I think the texture is a bit more refined–smoother, more finely-milled, and forgiving on the skin–in the original, but this is still quite good. Both shades are good or better pigmentation that was buildable, while they were easily blended out on the skin. I had no problem wearing both powders all day long. I hope the brand will come out with an even darker version and/or cooler-toned varieties.
