Carrying on with my look at the Tom Ford Summer Collection releases, here are the two Illuminating Cheek Colours that have been released. A brand new product, they’re rather lovely in appearance, resembling the NARS multiple in weight and heft, but do they measure up on the skin? Let’s take a look:

Two shades have been released, Bronzed Amber (on the left) and Blush Guilt. Bronzed Amber is a coppery-tan, and Blush Guilt is a slightly silvered baby-pink. They’re both very pretty in the tube:
I used the phrase “sheer gorgeousness” when I first introduced the collection, and I’ve used the phrase advisedly, because the collection is all very sheer, and these cheek colors are no different. On skin, they have a translucent quality, and are, it must be said, rather less pigmented than they appear in the tubes. This is, I think, both a qood and bad thing.
I’ll show you the blended swatches, and you’ll see what I mean:
Blush Guilt largely disappears into my skintone (but is a nice highlighter, admittedly), and the Bronzed Amber also disappears, leaving just a whisper of colour on the skin. It would make a good, albeit rather sheeny contour shade, possibly. For the price – a not inconsiderable £48 apiece – I’d expect a little more, well, oomph, frankly.
That said, if sheer summer colours are what you want, these are rather lovely ones, if you’re pale.
