I am officially DONE with Tom Ford Beauty. This is the second blush that I have spent and insane amount of money on only to be disappointed again.
I don't find this color unique or interesting in anyway. Its a pale peachy pink that barely shows up on my NC 30 skin. It also makes my pores look huge. Unfortunately I do not live in a city that has Tom Ford makeup in department stores so I have to guess by online swatches and the pictures on bergdorfgoodmans website. Based on online swatches, I thought this would be at least as pigmented as NARS orgasm but without the gold shimmer. It is not. IMO it is even less pigmented that NARS deep throat which is also too light for me to wear.
Unfortunately Bergdorf's does not take returns on used MU so I guess I am stuck with this. Perhaps I a very pale friend of mine will enjoy it as a birthday present.
This blush has such a beautiful finish. It feels very soft and pleasurable to apply. It also *looks* very soft and makes your skin look so luminous and "velvety" if that's the right description. Frantic Pink is a gorgeous color. Others have mentioned the shimmer/glitter but I don't notice it. Maybe the shimmer is what makes it look so luminous but I wouldn't call the finish "shimmer". This is a great daytime color. You also get a ton of product.
Let me start by saying that shopping at Tom Ford is like shopping at Costco. Sometimes you pay more than usual, but you get more for your money in the end. Shopping at places like Costco are convenient. You front a little bit more money up in the beginning but then you aren't forced to repurchase the items for a decent amount of time. Same thing here. I know Tom Ford is on the high end of luxury, but when you factor the amount of product you get, it all begins to make sense. NARS blushes are around $30 and you only get 4.8g for $25 more you can get 8g of a better quality product. I am so glad I decided to put forth the extra cash for this blush because it is absolutely beautiful. It's a sophisticated Nars Orgasm. The texture is the smoothest, and there's not offensive glitter chunks. Applying this every morning is a dream. Because the powder is so finely milled and refined, I never have to worry about going overboard with this, I can just swipe it on top of my bronzer and head out the door. It lasts all day, and can really be applied with just about any brush. I've used expensive and cheap brushes with this and the result is always the same (which I think speaks to the quality of this blush) honestly if you can afford to treat yourself to this little gem, do it. you won't be disappointed. I'm already thinking about making my next Tom Ford purchase.
Tom Ford is so addictive! Frantic pink is a very light pinky peach blush with shimmer. I love this over bronzer or as a highlight with a matte peach blush like D&G peach blush. They are crazy expensive but at least the package contains a lot of product.
This is a nice very light pink-peach blush. But the effect on my skin is too peachy for my liking. The powder is creamy, soft and the staying power is good. There is a lot of shimmer in it and when the blush fades the shimmer is left on the skin. I like it but do not love it. You get 8 g of blush, which is a lot and there is no brush with it.
I love everything about this product! The colour is amazing on my nw15/20 skin tone, like I am lightly flushed but very naturally. It applies like an absolute dream with the Tom Ford blush brush and the packaging is so sleek and gorgeous. If I had to only choose one blush to use for the rest of my life this would be it!
i wanted to try TF blushes and see what all the hype was about. I was looking for something i could wear everyday, nothing too pigmented or bright so that i could use it eceryday and get my moneys worth so i chose frantic pink. on my NC30 skin it shows up as a peachy pink. blendability is really nice, not powdery, shimmers is very subtle. i think this blush will not show up on anyone with a darker skin tone than me. because i am not fair and more on the yellow tan side, blushes tend to appear different on my skin tone. it reminds me of nars orgasm minus the excess shimmer and with silver shimmer instead of gold. i remember with nars orgasm, i had to dig more of the product for the color to show up, with TF i didn't have to do that, it is creamy and pigmented considering it is the lightest shade. the longevity is pretty good, i have oily combo skin and after six hours, the color didnt turn orange on me nor did it turn patchy like most blushes do on my skin. i didnt have to touch up at all and j must say i am impressed at the longevity and how it just faded so evenly cknsidering my skin type. however i don't know if i would repurchase or purchase another shade simply because of the price. you do get what you pay for, the packaging is very classy and substantial and the quality is beautiful but i wouldn't call it a must have for every makeup lover because there are so many lovely blushes in the market and the shades are very dupable but if you want something luxurious, i would recommend trying one.
Frantic pink is a beautiful pink/peach that looks great alone or with Tom Ford terra bronzer which I also purchased. I really splurged here but there is so much product and it is so pigmented that I don't anticipate ever, ever hitting the pan on either the blush or the bronzer!! It is very pricey ($55 for blush and $90 for bronzer) but I have spent so much money over the years on every blush and bronzer in every line from drugstore to Chanel and Armani that I've finally realized it's better to pay the extra for something fabulous in the first place instead of having 50 blushes and bronzers that are just sitting in the drawer. I love all the Tom Ford products I have so far. You can use a light hand for a subtle glow or build it up for more intense color. This is a great blush that works for both day and night.
After discovering NYX, I am disgusted with myself for the TF spree I went on. One shot deal. NEVER again.
This color is quite unique, it's far from being candy pink, more like half way between pink and peach, very light and has a neon like brightness to it, a quality also shared by 03 Flush. The neon brightness translates to a lit up look on the face. A lot of blushes tend to darken fair skin as they deposit color, not this one! It's as if you're putting nothing but a light layer of pigment and glow on the cheeks. It has an almost ethereal quality to it.
Nars Orgasm has heavily reflective golden shimmers while Frantic Pink has light silvery shimmers. The color of Orgasm is also redder and darker. In other words, Frantic Pink has a more natural effect and is definitely more work appropriate.
