Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo

Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo
Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo

Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo ($78.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, limited edition blush duo for summer that uses a wet/dry formula. According to the brand, the blush “can be applied wet for a soft veil of color” or “dry for a sweeping pop of vibrancy.” Both shades were fairly pigmented applied dry, but both intensified and were much more opaque when applied damp. They were less blendable when applied with a damp brush (the darker shade was less forgiving). The wear dry was eight to eight and a half hours, and the wear damp was eight and a half hours (for both shades). Forgetting that it’s supposed to be sheer when applied damp, it’s a nice blush duo, and I think that for those who don’t want to bother with damp application, the dry application is actually where the blushes shine best.

Bicoastal (Top) is a light-medium pink with a hint of warm, peach and a frosted sheen. Applied dry, it was mostly opaque with a very frosted sheen that was just shy of emphasizing pores. Applied damp, it was fully opaque (not a “soft veil of color”) with a smoother sheen–it was actually less noticeably shimmery/luminous when applied damp. On me, it wore well for eight hours dry, eight and a half hours damp. The texture was soft, lightly firm in the pan but not stiff, and blendable overall, but it was easiest to blend out when used dry. Coloured Raine Cutie Pie (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Blonde (LE, $33.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NARS Adoration (Left) (P, ) is cooler (90% similar). Milani Berry Rays #1 (P, ) is less pigmented, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Full Service (LE, $8.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Milani Pink Play #1 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Beaming Blush (P, $33.00) is cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cool (Winter 2016) Highlighter (LE, $60.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Makeup Revolution Make Love Instead (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Paradise Lust (Top) (LE, ) is warmer (80% similar). MAC Rio (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Ciate Moondust (P, $29.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Giorgio Armani Eccentrico (LE, $88.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). NARS Fervor (Left) (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bicoastal (Bottom) is a medium-dark, raspberry pink with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. Applied dry, it had good pigmentation (but it appeared faded in overall appearance compared to damp application) with a soft, smooth consistency that was easily blended on the skin and wore for eight and a half hours. Applied damp, it was less shimmery and appeared warmer in tone, while the color lasted for nine and a half hours; it wasn’t as blendable when applied with a damp brush (I would use fingers to blend out). Chanel Rose Tourbillon (67) (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Foxglove (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Red Water Lily (LE, $40.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Rosewood (350) (P, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Black Opal Nectar (P, $8.95) is warmer (90% similar). Clinique Rosy Pop (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). theBalm Houndstooth (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Thames (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Clinique Heather Pop (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Love is the Drug (P, $40.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Weekend Getaway (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, cooler, glossier (90% similar). Too Faced Your Love is King (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Flush (P, $60.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Stila Pink Rose Blush (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Sephora Love Sick (22) (P, $14.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). NARS Adoration (Right) (P, ) is brighter (90% similar). Becca Hibiscus Bloom (LE, $34.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Benefit Bella Bamba (DC, $29.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Fetching (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Night Fever & Hot Stuff (508) (P, $42.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Tom Ford Purple Noon Ultra-Rich Lip Color
Tom Ford Purple Noon Ultra-Rich Lip Color

Tom Ford Otranto Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with cool undertones and fine, light gold and rose shimmer. It had mostly opaque coverage with a lightweight texture that wasn’t as emollient as other shades in the range. It lasted for longer–four hours–and seemed to stay in place better. MAC Where No Man Has Gone Before (LE, $17.50) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Drake (P, $36.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar).

Tom Ford Scandola Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-beige with warm undertones and gold shimmer. It had sheer coverage, which seemed to lighten and add warmth to my lips without adding a lot of noticeable peach color. It applied somewhat evenly, but the lighter color emphasized all the lip lines as the product tended to settle into the lines. The color wore for two hours on me. Tom Ford Beauty Revolve Around Me (LE, $52.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Pressed and Ready (LE, $17.50) is lighter (90% similar).

Tom Ford Purple Noon Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark berry plum with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy shine. It had semi-opaque coverage with a lightweight, moderately slippery texture that glided on easily but the thinner consistency made sure it didn’t slide around too readily. The color stayed on for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Hourglass Liberator (P, $32.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ingrid (LE, $36.00) is darker (95% similar). Givenchy Purple Fiction (07) (P, $34.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Aubergine (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar).

Tom Ford Cala di Volpe, Carriacou, Mustique, Pipa Moisturecore Lip Colors

Tom Ford Cala di Volpe Moisturecore Lip Color
Tom Ford Cala di Volpe Moisturecore Lip Color

Tom Ford Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is supposed to have two formulas in one. The center is described as a “liquid core” that “provides luxurious moisture” while the exterior is hydrating, has golden pearl, and yields a “soft veil of lightweight color that lasts for hours.” The formula is lightweight, moderately emollient, and somewhat hydrating. It didn’t have great longevity as wear ranged from two to four hours depending on the shade. They don’t really have a “soft veil” of color, as most of them are fairly pigmented. It is vanilla-scented with no discernible taste. In general, the formula is a little heavier but has noticeably less shine than the also-new Ultra-Rich Lip Colors.

Tom Ford Cala di Volpe Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium-dark, caramel brown with warm, yellow and orange tones and fine golden copper shimmer. It had more of a frosted finish, but the shimmer was fine enough that it wasn’t noticeable as a textural element. It wore well for three and a half hours, was lightly hydrating, and was comfortable to wear overall. Chanel Synopsis (P, $37.00) is darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Sunset Beach (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Glamour Era (P, $23.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Bite Beauty Marzipan (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (85% similar). Guerlain Python Bag (012) (P, $32.00) is less pigmented, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Monica (LE, $36.00) is less shimmery, darker, less pigmented (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Fabiola (LE, $36.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Guerlain Gaetane (16) (P, $58.00) is brighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Romy (LE, $36.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Henry (DC, $36.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Maybelline Mochachino (P, $7.49) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Jupiter (LE, $17.50) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). Laura Geller Fig Prosecco (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Carriacou Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky-coral with warm undertones and a soft, luminous sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage (a lot more than a veil!) with a creamy, light-medium-weight consistency that applied evenly but pulled a bit into lip lines. It wasn’t too noticeable from afar, just in the close-up shot. The formula had a fair amount of slip and only wore for three hours on me. It was lightly hydrating while worn. Tarte Mimosa (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Call Back (P, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Ex-Girlfriend (LE, $18.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Real Redhead (LE, $17.50) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). YSL Le Nu (70) (P, $36.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Touche (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Chanel Marlene (458) (P, $37.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Dream Daze (LE, $23.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Clinique Melon Pop (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Almondine (LE, $17.50) is cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Julianne (LE, $36.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Mustique Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a very creamy consistency that was difficult to apply evenly–it was streaky, somewhat uneven, and pulled into lip lines while worn. The color lasted for two and a half hours. Wet 'n' Wild A Short Affair (P, $0.99) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Catty (LE, $17.50) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

MAC Without Your Love (LE, $17.50) is darker, less glossy (85% similar). Urban Decay Native (DC, $22.00) is darker, less glossy (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Cloud (P, $35.00) is darker (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Pale Mauve (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer, less glossy (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Austin (P, $36.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Pipa Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on evenly for the most part. The texture was lightweight but balmy, so it applied easily and without tugging on the lips. The color lasted for three hours and was lightly moisturizing. NYX Haute Melon (P, $4.00) is glossier (90% similar). Urban Decay Lovelight (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar).

This is a new addition to the Tom Ford Bronzing Powder range. Similarly, it is available in the smaller size (which is what is shown in the review) as well as a larger size. It is more subdued and more yellow-based than the other two shades. The texture was a little drier and didn’t blend out easily as the other shades, which was a disappointment. It had a thinner feel that seemed smooth, but there was a dryness present that made it prone to sticking in certain places but not wanting to diffuse or stretch across the skin for even coverage. It had decent color payoff and wore for eight hours on me.
