Tom Ford The Afternooner Soleil Contouring Compact

Tom Ford The Afternooner Soleil Contouring Compact ($108.00 for 0.70 oz.) is a mega-sized compact that features three products: a highlighter, blush, and bronzer. It’s limited edition for summer and features the brand’s signature white packaging they often used for the summer collections. I was dismayed at the price point when pre-ordering, but it is massive; it is the size of their large-sized bronzing compacts, but the content weight is really the equivalent of three full-sized cheek colors. Though I’m not sure about ever hitting pan on something like this, the upside is that each shade is contained inside its own well and each well is large enough to use the shades individually. Small to medium brushes worked best; large brushes were too big for individual use. The brand states that the compact can be used individually or together for “sheer to medium coverage” and “both matte and radiant.” All three shades were smooth, while the blush and bronzer were a little firmer in the pan, fairly blendable, had medium coverage, and lasted for at least eight hours. The colors are more dupable, and the pigmentation is medium–which is as described–but may not be what you’re looking for.
