Tom Ford Stroked Contouring Cheek Color Duo

Tom Ford Stroked Contouring Cheek Color Duo ($77.00 for TBA oz.) is supposed to create “sculpted cheekbones” by using the “lighter, pearlescent shade to highlight” and the “deeper, matte shade to add definition and structure.” Long-time readers may be well-acquainted with my love for Tom Ford’s Cheek Color formula, so I’ve been eager (but anxious) about the arrival of the new, limited edition duos. The illuminating powder is impressive with a really soft, buttery consistency that sits on the skin beautifully. The blush-like color had a slightly thinner texture in comparison and could have used a wee bit more pigment, though it was still a soft, finely-milled, blendable blush. I’m definitely going to buy the other duo whenever I see that available online!

Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Rainforest After Dark Eye & Cheek Palette ($38.00 for 0.70 oz.) includes one highlighter (0.14 oz,) one bronzer (0.14 oz.), one blush (0.21 oz.), and six eyeshadows (0.035 oz. each). It’s a nice palette for someone who likes softer, more muted colors in medium tones. I found the palette to be warmer-toned, though some of the eyeshadows are only a little warm-toned. My least favorite product was the blush, as I found it to be weaker in pigmentation and harder to blend–it tended to look uneven applied and took quite a bit of buffing to get to look half-decent.
