Tom Ford Disclosure Cheek Color ($60.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation–up to mostly opaque–that applied fairly evenly to the skin. I felt like it took a bit of extra effort to really diffuse and blend out the blush, but it wasn’t too much work to get the blush into place. The texture was thin, a little dusty in the pan, but finely-milled. It wore well for nine and a half hours before fading on me.
For 2017, Tom Ford reformulated this powder blush formula, and the new formula is described as “layers of possibility, from a sexy glow to a more dramatic, color-rich look” (that sounds like “buildable”) that is supposed to apply “with the comfort of a cream.” Overall, the texture is thinner, finely-milled but drier than the original formula, and the shimmer has become finer and less apparent through many of the new-old shades. The formula was still fairly blendable to very blendable and particularly long-wearing with semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation.
