Tom Ford: Moodlight Palette
Currently i am having a real moment with Tom Ford make up, after treating myself to some of the Lips and Boys lipsticks i have been on a downward spiral of expensive make up. Tom Ford is definitely a luxury brand so i really do my research before i purchase just because it is so expensive that if you get it wrong it is quite a costly mistake. However i've got to say i am chuffed with everything i've got so far. The Tom Ford Skin Illuminating Powder Duo in Moodlight is one of those products that at £56 you want to make sure it is the right product for you so i have been using it for a few months now and i'm ready to talk about it.
I've got to say i haven't really read much about this product, it isn't a favourite amongst bloggers but really it should be. The formula of the powder is so finely milled that it is undetectable on the skin and glides smoothly over to create a very even, flawless finish. I use a brush to apply it but when i swatched it originally in store it has a very odd feel, almost like it should have been a gel at some point, This is why it costs £56 because it is so unlike any other product and it does leave a luminous glow to the skin without ever looking too much.
The shades themselves are the perfect highlight and contour for someone super pale. The highlight is a pearlescent shade with hints of a cool tone pink. It swipes across the top of your cheeks to make you look super healthy. The bottom shade could be used as a highlight for those with darker skin tones and in the pan it looks more like a rose toned highlight however on me it comes out very brown, a bit like if i ever tanned so i like to use it as a contour. Even thought it is a shimmery contour it gives a glow to my cheeks that i don't naturally have. If i want to deepen it up i do mix it with the Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette which i spoke about a few weeks ago.
The packaging is typical Tom Ford, looking exactly the same as the packaging for the eye shadow palettes, it comes with the same pouch as well so i keep mine in separate boxes in my make up draw to distinguish which one is which. You can kind of see in the picture but when it is new it has TF embossed on the product surrounded by a criss cross effect which looks almost like harlequin. The packaging looks and feels like a luxury product and whenever i use it i do feel very fancy however is it worth £56?
Personally i think it is, i haven't used a highlighting product that i love this much and which suits my skin tone so well. I do absolutely love my Champagne Pop highlighter however some days it is a little bit too much, this is never too much and for anyone pale like me it actually blends in really nicely. As i've said the second shade is amazing for contour on me however it is going to be too light for a lot of people, if you were going to use it as a highlighting duo then i'm not sure it is as good for the money and you might be better off with something like the Shade and Illuminate Duos from Tom Ford.
I've got to say i am a massive convert to Tom Ford Beauty which isn't a good thing for my bank balance, have you tried any of the products and what do you love? Would you like me to talk more about some of the Tom Ford Products i have tried?
