Soleil Neige (02)

Tom Ford Beauty Soleil Neige (02) Highlighter & Blush Glow Stick ($55.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes a pearly highlighter on one shade and a creamy blush on the other. The product twists up from the respective ends. It’s a very emollient formula with a high-shine, dewy finish that doesn’t seem to dry down or set, yet it manages to wear beautifully for nine hours (without moving around). The highlighter had more semi-opaque coverage, while the blush had more opaque coverage, but I suspect that most will find the coverage levels easy to work with, whether to build up or sheer out.

Soleil Neige (Highlighter)

Soleil Neige (Highlighter) is a pale, white gold with subtle, warm undertones and a dewy, lightly pearlized sheen. It’s a very pale shade, so some of the coverage gets lost against my skin tone, but it seemed more semi-opaque in a single stroke (from the tube) and then more medium, buildable when applied with fingertips or a brush.

It had a creamy, emollient consistency that felt almost like a lip balm for the face, and it did not dry down or set (so it wasn’t transfer-resistant either!). I was happily surprised that it actually wore quite well; the product had a pearly sheen apparent even after 12 hours that hadn’t migrated or moved around–tested over bare skin as well as over foundation. It seemed slightly faded after about nine hours of wear.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is supposed to give a "luminous look year-round" with an "effortless application." It is a dual-ended, cream-based twist-up formula that gives a "perfect lustrous glow" for the highlighting side and a "pop of go-anywhere color" as the blushing side. Most shades had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, but the more emollient consistency made them spreadable and blendable. I had no trouble applying and blending out the product over bare skin, and patted over foundation (I used fingertips) worked well for me (I tried it with Too Faced Born This Way and Chanel Ultra Le Teint Velvet).

The formula is very dewy and luminous without a real dry down, so if you're someone who tends to touch their face or needs to pull off a sweater, it's not at all transfer-resistant. On me, while noticeably dewy throughout the day, the product stayed in place well for nine hours and was still mostly in place after 12 hours of wear. It can be lightly set--just barely dusted with translucent powder--and still have some of the dewiness visible. It wore similarly over foundation and did not seem to breakdown my foundation any faster.

Soleil Neige (Blush)

Soleil Neige (Blush) is a brighter, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, luminous finish. On a scale of one to ten for dewiness, the finish was a solid nine. The texture reflected that, as it felt almost like a balm with how emollient it was but still spread easily across my skin and diffused nicely along the edges. I tend to favor fingertips, as they’re fast and reliable for me, but stippling brushes worked well with the formula. It had a more watercolor effect applied as the product looked seamless with my skin texture.

It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke directly from the tube, while application with fingertips can range from semi-opaque to opaque (but easily diffused for sheerer coverage) and more medium to semi-opaque with a brush. The color started to look a bit faded after nine hours of wear, though the overall color and placement were largely intact after 12 hours of wear.

I LOVE the retro look to this! It looks so classy and like an item from the 70’s my mother would have had in her beauty arsenal. So, so pretty!!

Stunning duo! I really love how it imparts such a natural looking glow!
My only concern is that it stays wet. I’d be worried about it getting on clothing or furniture. I will probably still get it or the Megeve one, though.

These are both really pretty. I particularly like the highlighter but I have so many now that I likely won’t pick this up. I did just buy quite a few blushes and that is another factor. I do like that the blush doesn’t move around and stays put without setting as I have been trying not using a powder all over my face. In the past I have always set my entire face with powder and then add an additional lite powder (Guerlain Meteorites) at the end to meld everything together. I have been trying to go without the powder to give my skin a more glowy appearance and not so powdery. So, a good blush that stays where it is suppose to but doesn’t necessarily look dry is where I am heading with future applications so this formula seems like a winner for me.

Have you tried ColourPop’s Blush/Lite Stix? I find they’re rather comparable (probably the most comparable formula I saw when I was looking for dupes for the Glow Sticks in general).
