Tom Ford Black Bloom Nightbloom Powder

Tom Ford Black Orchid Nightbloom Powder

Tom Ford Black Bloom Nightbloom Powder ($80.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light-medium gold with strong, yellow undertones and a sparkling, golden shimmer finish. Anastasia Sunburst (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Sun Ceremony (LE, $2.99) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Butterscotch (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Routes des Indes de Chanel Illuminating Powder (LE, $65.00) is darker (90% similar). Smashbox Glow (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Becca Prosecco Pop (LE, $38.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Party (LE, $46.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Giorgio Armani No. 02 (P, $62.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tarte Gator Wings (LE) is lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals The Shining Moment (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Nightbloom Powder is supposed to have a “luxurious” feel and “sumptuous color.” In reality, it is a powder highlighter with a noticeable about of shimmer and shine, so it is more suitable for someone who likes their highlighter stronger. The texture was dense, a little dry to the touch, but blendable on the skin and did not emphasize my pores or the natural texture of my skin. I noticed some of the shimmer separated from the base powder, so it did not look as even on the skin as desired. On my light-medium skin tone, I get visible yellow gold color, but it is possible to diffuse and sheer it out so there is fainter color as well. The pigmentation was buildable, starting around medium coverage and building up from there. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading.
