Tom Ford Frantic Pink Cheek Color
Tom Ford Frantic Pink Cheek Color

Tom Ford Frantic Pink Cheek Color ($55.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a subtly gold shimmered light-medium pink with yellow undertones. MAC Stunner is similar but doesn’t have a golden shimmer. Benefit Hervana is slightly pinker. MAC Alpha Girl is more peach/orange. Tarina Tarantino Feather is more coral.

I’ve been particularly impressed by Tom Ford’s blush formula in the past, but I was a little disappointed in Frantic Pink. It’s not bad; it’s even really good. It’s just not as amazing as the other shades have been.  The texture is soft but very powdery, so it feels a little dry and doesn’t sit as nicely on the skin as the other shades.  It was still easy to blend, which I’d expect with such a soft texture and light color.  This one is less shimmery, though, compared to some of the other colors in the line-up.  It’s a lighter color, period, so it’s not going to show up well on medium to dark skin tones.  The color is very much what you see in the pan.  I was only able to get good wear out of this for eight hours, which is good, but other shades have yielded longer than that.

On the upside, Tom Ford gives plenty of product for the hefty price tag; it’s higher than average and definitely not skimpy. For reference, MAC blushes are 0.21 oz. and NARS blushes are 0.16 oz. each.  So, if it’s a shade you’d wear everyday, it might be cheaper-per-use, but it’s still an investment.
