Tom Ford Beauty launched their original Shade and Illuminate Cheek product a few years ago, and have now brought out some new shades. There was a lot of blogger criticism online that the original ‘didn’t contour’ enough, but I don’t think Mr Ford was ever going for a full-on Kardashian contour product.
The shades in this product are sheer, but buildable, and if you are a little bit afraid of contouring, they are perfect! There are two new shade duos to choose from as of January this year – Sublimate and Scintillate.
Each of them has pearlescent highlighting shade which brightens and draws light to the sin, to amplify the cheekbones and lift the face, and a sheer vibrant blush shade which deepens and defines, giving just a hint of contour.
Each shade duo enhances a range of skin tones. I have Scintillate and whilst it looks perhaps too dark for my pale complexion, it’s not really, and will be ideal come summer. However, I do think, given my newly coloured pink hair, I would prefer Sublimate, to create a cheeky pink contour.
Both new shades are available now. if you are a Tom Ford fan, then this is a gorgeous product to have. Everyone knows TF is luxury and that comes at luxury prices.
