what can I say about the perfect bush! Tom Ford is a master at this one. He made a blush that truly lasts 12 hours. And it is beautiful. It is the sophisticated versions of a toned down "O", a tiny bit less pink. Not as sparkly either. It works for my NC25 skin, but I have to be careful or it will be too much. I can't imagine anyone not loving this.

I will start by saying that I really don't get the hype about Tom Ford's blushes. I do like the colour selection and I do enjoy their very nice texture, but they are too expensive for what they are.
I especially don't get the craze about the packaging, which is admittedly well designed but it is too cheap when you get your hands on it. This is plastic, not luxurious at all I assure you, very light and very cheapo. You can almost scratch away the TOM FORD logo-type-print-thing off the mirror with your fingernail.
This particular shade, Love Lust, is very nice but not at all unique. Its silky soft, buttery texture is NOT at all superior to the Korres blushes that retail for no more than half the price for almost the same amount of product (Tom Ford 8gr, Korres 7gr).
All in all, with competition like Burberry's products and packaging or Armani's textures (cheapo packaging as well though), I would not dish out the money for any of these again, unless an amazingly unique shade comes up.

This is the longest lasting powder blush I've ever worn. Usually I only get such long wear from a cream formula. Most of my powder blushes tend to fade a little throughout the day but this one stays put until I wash it off. It has a really gorgeous sheen that lights up my face and doesn't compete with my skin tone. It's a beautiful version of coral, more orange than pink. There's a very refined golden shimmer that just barely shows up once it's applied, definitely not glitter or anything close to sparkle. More of a luminescent effect. In terms of color Chanel's Malice looks very similar to me (even down to the gold shimmer) but with a touch more pink.
I had to go easy with the application because the pigmentation builds up so quickly, so it's no problem to get the exact same intensity that's in the pan. I tap my brush onto the powder because the texture is so soft and dense that a full swipe would pick up a crazy amount of product. Finely milled and silky with no scent that I can detect. My skin is normal, sometimes a little dry if my allergies are acting up, and this never looks like it's sitting on top of my skin. The packaging is simple and sleek with a secure magnetic closure and an interior mirror.
I didn't like the TF lipsticks or eyeshadows and I almost passed on even trying the blushes. I don't know if this color in particular is incredibly unique but the finish is stunning and overall these blushes feel wonderful, they're long wearing, and you get a ton of product (0.28oz/8g).

This blush is unbelievably beautiful. On my fair skin it shows up as a lovely pink shade with a hint of coral and beautiful gold shimmer (it may be the gold shimmer set in the pink which makes it look coral, rather than the actual powder shade - it's hard to say). I think I have found my perfect blush for spring and early summer. I wasn't sure how intensely pigmented it would be, so I used a fan brush and light hand and started slowly. It took about 3 or 4 swipes in the pan and on my cheeks to get it to a medium-light intensity (something appropriate for a professional work environment). It is less pigmented than Illamasqua, where a single pass with a fan brush (using Hussy) is enough to thoroughly color my cheeks - this means that at least this particular shade is more forgiving and provides a margin for error! :) I am so in love with this shade, and so impressed by the finish and ease of blending that I've begun considering my next shade - maybe Frantic Pink. At least based on my experience with this blush I would absolutely recommend it, despite the cost. The case is similar to other TF cases - enamel-y brown with gold accent and magnetic closure. I think it's expensive, but it's exquisite and well worth the cost.
