Tom Ford Beauty Terra Soleil Glow Bronzer ($70.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a light-medium brown with subtle, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation, as described, from semi-sheer to mostly opaque with a smooth, denser consistency in the pan. I was surprised that there was some powderiness once I put my brush to the powder to pick up product, so there was definitely no concern about it being too firm. While the formula is touted as “luminous” and having a “luminous, lit-from-within glow,” Terra was matte. It let my natural skin come through, slightly, so it didn’t look flat once buffed and blended out, but I wouldn’t call it luminous or radiant at all. The powder blended out easily on my skin and stayed on well for eight hours.
The ingredient list differs from The Ultimate Bronzer, so while they have a similar imprint, they’re not the same formula (and not the same color either!). The Soleil Glow formula has a more powdery, slightly more yielding feel.
