Stick Blushes With a Dewy Twist: The Tom Ford Illuminating Cheek Colors in Blush Guilt and Bronzed Amber

Published in: Face, Makeup, Product Reviews, Tom Ford Beauty

Tom Ford Beauty Illuminating Cheek Color in Bronzed Amber

Oh, hai! It’s Tom Ford Beauty Illuminating Cheek Color in Bronzed Amber. I’m wearing it here on my cheeks atop MAC Face & Body Foundation.

I like makeup.

This probably comes as no surprise if you’ve been here before…but I’m particularly fond of blushes and highlighters that come in stick form.

Especially ones that leave my face looking all sweet and angelic, like I should be floating high above the earth on a bed of billowy clouds, sunlight dappling my skin, while a heavenly chorus sings, “Ahhhhhh!” The more people wondering if I had wings tucked beneath my blazer, the better. :)

Tom Ford’s two new summer 2013 Illuminating Cheek Colors ($58 each, OMG!) are the latest examples of this particular makeup weakness/obsession of mine.

Dewy, is that you?

Tom Ford Blush Guilt

Blush Guilt

Pinky peach Blush Guilt and Bronzed Amber represent TF’s take on cream stick blushes with an interesting twist. They give a sheer, glistening, almost wet look to cheeks.

Bronzed Amber

It’s as if the team in charge of the finish part of this equation went on a week-long spa trip to Canyon Ranch and never quite recovered, because when I wear either of these colors, I feel like I look like I haven’t got a care in the world…like my only concerns are whether I should have a hibiscus or a peppermint tea between my facial and my 120-minute shiatsu massage.

Seriously, my cheeks just glow. :)

The texture’s the balm!

Tom Ford Beauty’s Fire Lust Skin Illuminator: Candle Power or Five-Alarm Blaze?

Is Tom Ford Beauty’s $65 Skin Illuminator in Fire Lust more like a candle or a five-alarm blaze?

Hmm…

Tom Ford Skin Illuminator in Fire Lust

Well, let’s just say that it’s a little like trimming your bangs…if trimming bangs had anything at all to do with liquid face illuminators. :)

Put another way, it’s a subtle effect that won’t hit someone over the head, but if you point it out to ‘em, they’ll probably say something like, “Oh, yeah… I can see it now. Kinda.”

Grab the Keys to the Bentley and Your Tube of Tom Ford Beauty Lip Lacquer in Pink Lust

Tom Ford Pink Lust Beauty Lip Lacquer, $30

Who might like Tom Ford Beauty’s Lip Lacquer in Pink Lust? Hmm…

  • Someone willing to drop the scrilla on three pairs of Choos, and would do it without batting an eye.
  • Someone who drives the Bentley to Rite Aid to get a Mother’s Day Card because the chauffeur has the day off.
  • Someone with an in-house beauty team at her beck and call (NOTE: Mariah Carey has one, which does not surprise me, and it furthers my theory that MiMi is a kooky, yet misunderstood, genius).

In other words, unless your upper makeup spending limit hits three or four digits on the reg, most guys/gals will probably find Tom’s $30 pearly pink gloss, as gorgeous as I think it is (especially with a tan), really, really expensive for what you get.

Why?

Because it’s $30 (!), pretty sheer and only lasts about 30 minutes. Tops.

Tom Ford Beauty Lip Lacquer in Pink Lust

Like a MAC Cremesheen Glass’s ritzy cousin, it has a similarly thin, smoove formula and texture, similar vanilla flavor and scent and a super shiny finish.

3 Reasons I Fell in Love With Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze Cream Color for Eyes

Published in: Eyes, Makeup, Tom Ford Beauty

Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze

I’m in a Pink Haze…wearing Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze Cream Color for Eyes, $40

I’ve got it bad for rose gold! — and Tom Ford Beauty’s $40 Pink Haze Cream Color for Eyes is fanning the flames of my desire…

Tom Ford Pink Haze

How much do I love thee, oh peachy pink prince of a cream eye shadow with golden pearl?

Let me count the ways…

1. You’re flawless

Like Escapade, your limited edition Cream Color comrade in Tom Ford’s summer 2013 collection, lightweight Pink Haze glides along skin like an ice cube across glass, and the mousse formula lasts longer than a Duracell (easily all day) — no patchiness, creases or fading, even when worn without primer.

2. So flexible

Oh, the many ways to wear it… When I want that ’57 Chevy chrome-like shine but don’t want my makeup looking caked on or heavy, I’ll just layer Pink Haze. But if instead I crave a softer look, I’ll buff and buff until I’m left with a peachy pink golden sheen. And then there’s its power to work as a base for powder eye shadows, where it also excels, especially when it comes to peaches, purples, pinks, bronze and gold.

3. Flattery will get you everywhere…

Yes, it lavishes praise, particularly upon tans, or if you wear golds, pinks and corals well.

Tom Ford Beauty’s $40 Escapade Cream Color For Eyes Casts a Radiant, Summery Sunset Glow on Lids

Tom Ford Beauty Escapade

The new Tom Ford Beauty Escapade Cream Color for Eyes, $40

Holy crap, Tom Ford! Wherever you’ve been spending your summers, to borrow a line from Liz Lemon, “I want to go to there.”

I can see you lounging by an infinity pool in the late afternoon, watching leggy ladies in Burberry bikinis test the water as beams of peachy, pinkish gold glisten on bronzed skin…

You take a sip from your daiquiri (complete with pink umbrella, of course) and make a mental note of every detail, which you promptly add to your summer collection. “Luxe, luminous, sunlit and sensuous,” you muse. “The ladies will love it.”

Tom Ford Beauty summer 2013

High five, Tom! Bulls eye. :)

Like two weeks on Kauai spent alternately napping and swimming, the new nine-piece Tom Ford Beauty summer 2013 collection is the stuff of my dreams, and maybe also yours, if you like traditional summer makeup looks.

Picture peach, pink, gold and bronze dancing across your skin; opalescent, soft shimmers; and radiant, dewy finishes that contrast wonderfully with sun-dappled bronzed mattes.

Tom Ford Beauty summer 2013

Hello, lovah!

Good grief! — I just had to fan myself for a second, Blanche Devereaux-style…

The new $40 Tom Ford Beauty Escapade Cream Color for Eyes is expensive, but oh, so flattering. And it isn’t fussy at all. The peachy, pinkish golden tones feel very of-the-moment to me, like rose gold jewelry (which I’m currently obsessed with), but for your face. I think the entire launch is gorgeous, especially on a tan.
