Tom Ford Flush Cheek Color
Tom Ford Flush Cheek Color

Tom Ford Flush Cheek Color ($55.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a vibrant coral-orange with a subtle satin-like sheen and a faint shimmer. It’s very similar to Illamasqua Dixie, which is a little pinker and has a cream formula. Tarte Blissful is also incredibly close, and it even has a similar texture. theBalm Frat Boy is similar but a touch pinker.

Flush can be applied sheerly with ease or built up to a medium color coverage–it has enough pigmentation to work on deeper skin tones without being too intense on lighter skin tones. The finish has a natural sheen that isn’t heavy, shimmery, or frosted, so it doesn’t emphasize pores or the texture of the skin. It’s a very flattering shade on warmer skin tones, and though it is more coral-orange than coral-pink, the vibrancy gives it more wearability on cooler skin tones.

The texture of Tom Ford’s blushes is impressive, and truth be told, of all the items from his makeup range, the blushes have been the most impressive. Everything else has left me lukewarm or just a little excited, but the blushes have been fantastic. The texture of Flush is slightly less dense than Lovelust and Wicked, but the texture is very finely-milled, so it feels like silk and melts against the skin. It wore for ten hours and looked just barely faded along the very top of my cheekbones.

    Very pretty Christine! What make up are you wearing on your eyelids? It looks great!

  2. Aleena

    You look incredibly lovely in that last picture Christine!

  3. I absolutely adore the texture on the skin; it’s so smooth and clean. I have been tempted to dive in and purchase some Tom Ford items, but considering the amount of makeup I have and barely get through, I can’t justify the purpose.

    However, Black Orchid and the foundation are on my wish list. The foundation is amazing; it’s right up there with the Armani foundations.

  4. It’s nice to know Tarte Blissful is incredibly close to this one! I’ve heard too many good things about these from you though. I think one day I’ll pick a color I don’t have yet to splurge out on!

  5. Y

    tatre amazon clay does this for 25

  6. I wonder how this compares to Marine Life!

  7. Christian

    Adding this to my buy list :-) nothing like an orangey coral blush!!!

  8. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Anita Anita

    Love it but leaving it because its so expensive! haha

  9. Lisa

    Pretty, but since I already own Blissful, I’ll pass. I LOVE your earrings, though – where did you get them?

  10. Irene

    Your eye makeup looks amazing!

  11. Anaïs :)

    This makeup look is stunning on you ! Perfection !

  12. Beautiful blush, and I am loving the Guerlain quad on your eyes!

  13. You look so stunning in these pics! Thanks for listing the rest of the makeup look, I have to try this one!! <3

  14. I love, love, love this – but for the price, I might go for Tarte Blissful instead, which was already on my wishlist!

  15. Katherine

    Oh wow, this is GORGEOUS. Probably going to have to pick this one up! I have Tom Ford’s Love Lust and I really love his blush formula. :)

  16. Oh wow, another gorgeous blush from Tom Ford, so pretty! I really need this!

    Those earrings are great! Can I ask where did you get them? They are perfect for the sunny weather we are getting in Vegas:)

  19. You look fabulous <3
    And this is such a happy blush!

  20. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Pamela Pamela

    This looks great! I can *almost* justify spending $55. Well, not quite!

  21. LaTasha

    Love that blush and your eyeshadow. What brand is that? The color? It goes great with the blush. Pretty!

  22. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Michaela Michaela

    I would love to own something like that. So beautiful.

  23. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Farah Farah

    *Love* at first sight!! This has to be mine…

  24. Ann

    I love the look of this blush! Why is it I don’t think anything of dropping $50 or $60 bucks on an eye shadow palette, but I just can’t stand the thought of spending $50 on blush? I also think this is a fabulous picture of you. I think your eye makeup looks great. Is this the MUFE aqua shadows or something different? Thanks for the review.

  25. Miss J

    This reminds me of NARS’ Gilda, which is my go-to coral. Less expensive than this and better quality, IMO, compared to the Tarte one.

  26. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Veronica Veronica

    Gorgeous color! His blushes are beautiful to look at, no doubt about that. This whole look is amazing on you, actually.

  27. Sana

    Those last two pics of you are absolutely captivating! Your portraits are always beautiful, but these are something else.

  28. Lou

    I love it! Does anyone know an online shop that will ship to Australia? This is retailing for $90 USD in Australia.

  29. wendy h

    After seeing all your photos, now I really want that eyeshadow quad!

  30. Looks great! I wonder if this retails here in Spain.

  31. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Neha Neha

    Simply awesome! It looks coral-pink when swatched and you have compared it with coral-pink blushes only, so is it a typo error that “is a vibrant coral orange”..?

  32. Flush looks lovely on you, Christine! I love how finely-milled the product itself looks – the texture looks like it blends just flawlessly.

    I’d probably look ridiculous in a shade like this, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate it against other skintones! :P

  33. Rachel

    you look stunning in these pictures!

  34. Maryam

    Hi Christine, does this blush have shimmer to it?

  35. Hello Christine: Have the mentioned Guerlain products you have used on your eyes available, or are they future release? Both Guerlain and Tom Ford have amazing products, and your makeup looks perfectly beautiful in this photograph. Very lovely!
    Thank you!
    Wendy

  36. Hi Christine: Ooohh one more question and it’s a tough one. If you had to pick only 2 Tom Ford blush colours, what would they be? I really love ‘Flush’ as you have on here, but I wanted to also pick up something that will work when I am wearing a more neutral or cooler palette. I’m at a crossroads between ‘Lovelust’ and ‘Frantic Pink’. I also caught a photo where you were wearing ‘Ravish’ and it looked great on you, but I’m a bit leery as it seems too dark for me. I am NC 25/30 (the 30 always seems too yellow and right now I’m a Guerlain girl wearing 03 Beige Natural with a touch of 02 Beige Clair because the 03 is a hint or two too dark. Anyhow, much prefer the Guerlain shades as they are not as yellowing as Mac. Hahaha..I swear it’s not rocket science, but close. Anyhow, your feedback would be really appreciated with the TF blushes as I am hoping you have had the opportunity to try most of these shades. The formula looks fabulous on you and I love how they appear very diffused.
    Thanks a bunch!
    WendyM

    • Frantic Pink would be your best bet for a cooler palette, though it reads more of a yellow-toned pink so it’s not really a cool-tone!

      Wicked is probably the coolest-toned shade in the range, but it’s a darker pink, so you may not want the pigmentation – I think it should be fine, and it’s buildable. Frantic Pink is lighter overall. Because you’re warmer, though, Frantic Pink would be a lovely everyday kind of shade.

    LOVE IT!

    im a major fan of illamasqua – love their products

    Hi Christine, just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the hard work you put into Temptalia. I honestly never buy anything without checking it up on you site first. I really trust your judgement and I’ve also come to understand that when you give something an A it’s really good, thank you once again and by the way you look absolutely stunning in this picture.

    Hi Christine,
    Great reading all your comments on this blusher..i currently use YSL Blush variation in colour number 7 (Corriander) but they’re discontinuing it and i’m absolutely gutted as love it SO much! So i’m trying to find an alternative match. Would you say this is quite similar?? The YSL one has a very subtle sheen to it..but looks so good on and also on camera.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks.

    Hi Christine.
     
    Your comments are great and very helpful. I currently use the YSL blush varaition colour number 7 (corriander) but they have discontinued it and i’m so gutted! Could you tell me if this is very similar to that? I’m desperately trying to find a replacement. The YSL one has a very slight sheen and looks so good on, and also on camera.
    Your help would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks
