Gilt Glow

Tom Ford Beauty Gilt Glow Radiant Perfecting Powder ($68.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a pale, white gold with warmer undertones and a luminous sheen. It had a stronger, white base that looked almost pinkish when applied to my skin tone, though the warmer, golden shimmer strewn throughout warmed up the overall color. The texture was smooth, thin, and almost papery as it had a dryness present that was unexpected, yet it didn’t seem to impact performance or application as the powder sat beautifully on my skin and yielded a moderate glow. It had excellent pigmentation, picked up well with a brush, and went on evenly and blended out with little effort. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Based on the arm swatches, I originally didn’t care for this highlighter at all. But seeing it in actual usage on the cheeks has changed my tune! It is actually quite beautiful applied.

It is stunning on! The texture made me pause but that’s why texture in the pan alone is often not as important as texture as it translates ON the skin!

WOW, I really love this one. I have Nars Albatross and Chanel Camellia De Plumes so don’t need it but it sure is lovely and might be worth looking into since Nars Albatross does sometimes emphasize my texture. It doesn’t seem to do it all the time but this looks really smoothing. Of course, you don’t have any texture to worry about but still like how it looks on your skin.

I think Sephora Canada has these backwards on their website. They show Gilt Glow as a they peachy gold, and Luna as the white gold. Just be careful anyone ordering online.
