Tom Ford’s summer offering this year is pale, pretty and rather on the sheer side. I’ve a selection of the products to show you, and I’m starting with the Fire Lust Illuminator, which is a lovely golden apricot shade, which you can use either as a highlighter or mix with your foundations for a sheer-er dewy finish.
A little of this goes quite a long way, it has good slip, and is a beautiful shade.
It’s full of micronised pearl pigments, and is rather pale when blended
As you can probably tell here. I blended half of the swatch out, and you can see the effect on the skin is rather … subtle. As a highlighter, on my skintone, it’s not all that effective, but I think on either a much paler, or even much darker skin, the effect would be more pronounced.
That said, this does mix beautifully with foundation. I’ve mixed this with Estee Lauder Double Wear, and Double Wear light, and the mix gives it a gorgeous dewy finish, but still with a nice amount of coverage, I really like it.
Tom Ford Skin Illuminator in Fire Lust is a limited edition product, and is on sale at Selfridges now for £46.
More from this collection coming up later this week.
