Tom Ford Lissome Sheer Cheek Duo Review & Swatches

Lissome

Tom Ford Beauty Lissome Sheer Cheek DuoTom Ford Beauty Lissome Sheer Cheek Duo ($82.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes two blushes–a rosy brown and mid-tone pink–with a more powder-gel formula, which felt denser/firmer but very smooth, blendable, and sat well on my skin. I recommend using moderately dense brush, something with a rounded or more dome-shaped edge, to pick up product well if medium or greater coverage is desired. Both shades were easy to work with, looked nice on my skin, and lasted for at least eight hours.

Lissome (Top)

Lissome (Top) is soft, rosy brown with warm undertones and a natural sheen. The powder had opaque pigmentation used dry that applied evenly and blended out well on my skin. When applied with a dampened brush, it had sheerer coverage (which was as intended) and a slightly stronger sheen. Regardless of wet or dry application, the finish was luminous but not metallic or noticeably shimmery–very fine, smooth, and pearl-like overall. The texture was denser and firmer, though smooth and not at all powdery, which is typical of this type of formula (powder-gel hybrid). This shade stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

Lissome (Bottom)

Lissome (Bottom) is a pop of medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had fine pearl throughout the powder, which was enough to yield a noticeable sheen but never appeared overtly shimmery or metallic on my skin. The consistency was smooth to the touch but denser and firmer, so it worked best with a moderately dense brush (but there was no powderiness, and it was easy to control how much product was picked up). The formula can be applied wet or dry with wet application having a sheerer, more stained-like effect, though it was still fairly pigmented and had a stronger sheen once blended out. The dry application had good pigmentation that applied evenly and blended out nicely. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Well, how about those apples; I’ve got a perfect dupes of shade #1 for just $2.99! Haha! Plus, I now see many a lovely and lower cost dupe listed for that delicious bright pink, too.
Many coinz saved!

Even if these were the most perfect shades ever created for my skin tone and received an A+ rating, I still wouldn’t even spend one single second thinking about paying $82 for it. There’s a point when it’s not luxury anymore, it’s just greed. That said, it does look very pretty on you, Christine.

Nicely said, Seraphine – it is greed at this point! You’ve hit the nail on the head regarding Tom Ford’s products. This blush duo is $100 here in Canada – simply outrageous.

I really like the satiny sheen on the pink shade. But I can mimic that about nineteen different ways with what I already have!

And for some bizarre reason, although I don’t mind using a dampened brush on my eyes, I can’t stand it on my cheeks…

I agree with the greed factor……. also I hate seeing PTFE (teflon)……..don’t use pans with it won’t wear clothing with it and I certainly don’t want it on my face……. lol!!!1
