This was part of my big purchase from Beautylish during their buy $100 get a $20 gift card promotion.
I’ve never owned a Tom Ford product before so I thought I’d dive right on in with something that I could wear everyday (I need to get my moneys worth at $82). The Skin Illuminating Powder Duo claims to mimic 2 different types of light on the skin, daylight and candlelight.
First of all, this is lovely. The packaging is luxurious from the outer box to the inner sleeve to the satisfying weight of the actual compact. The powders are bubbled up so there is a lot more product than there seems to be. The beautiful embossing work is even and adds to the luxurious feel.
What you don’t see, and won’t see in anyone’s swatches, is all the micro glitter. I love glitter, excessive amounts of glitter are A-OK in my book. The glitter in this powder is quite likely the most fine micro glitter I’ve ever experienced. It is almost impossible to capture on camera or even in video as I’ve tried. But it is definitely there.
I’m going to rate this a 10/10. I can wear it EVERY day even if it’s just a light dusting over my cheeks, it will last a long time and I can guarantee that I will smile every time I open the compact 🙂
