Asking me to choose my favorite highlighter, by the way, is akin to making me choose favorites between (fur) children (if I had more than one). There were some seriously ga-ga-glowing highlighters launched this year, too! On the blush front, there were some great shades and formulas I tried and tested, but it was easier to narrow those down.
The formula is supposed to deliver buildable color, whether you want a soft glow to a dramatic look. It’s supposed to have “the comfort of a cream” with “outstanding lumiosity” and “velvety transparency.” This powder is insanely soft; it feels like velvet against the skin–so finely milled that it really does have a creaminess to it, even though it is most definitely a powder product. The shimmer is fine, not too much, and most of it translates into a sheen rather than a shimmer. My favorite part about the formula was that this blush would wear for ten hours without fading on me. It may be one of the longest-wearing blushes I’ve tried to date.
Tom Ford Beauty is a luxury brand; it’s not just high-end, it’s luxury, which means it comes with a price tag that may inspire fainting, quips about the product being made out of gold/doing your taxes, and the like. Everyone’s budget and priorities are different, which is why I removed price from the rating system–whether it’s $1 or $100, the rating means the same thing. You’ll go through your rationalization process to determine whether something is worth it or not.
It's one of the best blush formulas I've come across, because of the ultra finely-milled powder that almost feels like cream and blends seamlessly across the skin--and then there's the out of this world wear.
