Oh, Tom Ford. Le sigh. I was suckered into purchasing a lipstick and a blush at some point in the last few months, and I honestly do not know what possessed me to give in. JK, it was the pretties.
It’s not that Tom Ford makes bad cosmetics… Because they are good products. It’s that they are freaking expensive. And I don’t know if they are good enough to warrant the price. But anyway. I caved and this is what happened with the blush.
I got the Tom Ford Cheek Color in a shade called Wicked, because it looked vaguely purple to me. It turned out to be veeery pink.
On the left is a heavy swatch, on the right is something more diffused.
And here it is on my cheeks! I applied it a little on the apples, with most of the concentration on the outer parts of my cheeks. I know that that placement is debatable, but I find that it is more flattering to my face shape.
Anyway, the pigmentation is alright. It’s decent enough, but it is also buildable. There is a bit of sheen to it, so I think there may actually be some glow over there. It’s a really pretty color, but I don’t think it’s anything unique.
Also, here’s the thing. The price tag on this is $55, but I bought mine from a local reseller at Php 2,800. Is it worth that much? After trying it, I personally don’t think so. The difference between this and blushes from NARS, Tarte, and so on in terms of price is a lot. The difference in quality, however, is not as wide a margin.
Sure, I like it and it’s pretty, but I like it more when I have money to travel or replace my computer or something.
It’s still a thing of beauty, though.
But I don’t think I’ll buy any more of these.
Tom Ford is not cruelty-free.
