Tom Ford Paradiso Cream Cheek Color ($68.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright pop of peony pink with subtle, warm undertones and fine, gold pearl. It had medium, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) that looked a lot like a cheek stain once blended out on my skin.
The formula is supposed to have a “natural burst of color” with a “healthy glow.” The cream blush had a smooth, moderately emollient consistency–it had some slip but didn’t feel greasy–that blended out easily on bare skin as well as over liquid foundation. If applied heavily, the product tended to sit on the skin without drying down, but applied at medium coverage and blended out, it did dry down for the most part. It had a luminous finish that was a mix of dewiness and subtle pearl. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
