Gold Dust

Tom Ford Beauty Gold Dust Soleil Glow Bronzer ($70.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a light-medium, reddish-brown with warm, gold pearl. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, though it was marketed as buildable, and one would need to use a very light hand to build up coverage. The consistency felt smooth and denser to the touch initially, but after using it once, it was softer, lightly powdery but did not translate as dry or powdery once applied to my skin. The bronzer applied evenly, blended out easily, and yielded a soft, golden sheen. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly on me.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

This is a true “suntan” looking bronzer. Very nice! I just don’t use bronzer often enough to validate my spending $70 on one. About as far as I go, is using UD Jawbone as a softly contour during warmer months because it’s not orange, not to yellow, for that purpose. When I do use anything to give me a little bit of a faux tan look, I’ll use MAC’s Cheek Pollen with a dusting of their Aaliyah Baby Girl over it, or the Taraji P. Henson cheek products from a few years ago if I want something brighter and more intense.

Tom Ford: if you are listening, please think of another bronzer name. You do not need three slightly different Gold Dusts in three different formulas. You could also maybe come up with a different bronzer shade while you’re at it…

Dear Christine, may i ask the color difference between the new formula gold dust and old ultimate bronzer gold dust? I found I can find a legitimate store to swatch both of them and compare!

Thank you Christine! I (I found myself typoed in my comment, I mean I “can”t”. Thanks for understanding what I was saying! I did compare the two product used your tool before you replied me ( the link you gave, thanks though!! ), but I still could figure it out 100% without your response.
May i ask again that do you think the new solei would also be OK for contouring shade? If so, which shade you recommend? Terra looks more cool toned, but also look too redish tone.
