Tom Ford's Cheek Color is a pretty straightforward take on powder blush in a compact, and it has a lot of good things going for it. First and foremost, it has a lovely texture that makes it easy to pick up on a brush. (It's more creamy than powdery, which means you don't have a lot of excess blush flying around.)

Cheek Color has a strong color impact, so you don't have to use a lot to get a nice healthy flush across your cheeks. It wears well throughout the day, and doesn't emphasize large pores, making it suitable for oily skin as well as for all other skin types.

Cheek Color comes in a small but well-edited selection of shades, ranging from natural pink to tawny nude to bold orange. Each shade has some degree of shimmer, but it's just enough to make skin look like it's glowing instead of glittery. Nicely done, and one of the few Ford products that may warrant a splurge (although you can get outstanding powder blushes for a lot less).

Pros:
  • Almost-creamy texture makes application easy.
  • Strong color impact; a little goes a long way!
  • Wears well throughout the day without emphasizing pores.
Cons:
  • None (except perhaps the price, because you can get excellent blushes for a fraction of the cost).

Brand Overview

Tom Ford is one of the world's hottest fashion designers. Coming to prominence in the mid-1990s, he became Creative Director at Gucci's fashion house, creating his own designer line in 2006 and five years later, followed in the footsteps of other high-fashion houses by launching a line of color cosmetics.

Housed in sleek black packaging with "Tom Ford" stamped in prominent gold-embossed lettering, the makeup certainly looks luxurious, and the pricing is definitely in the haute couture range. There are some great performers among Ford's small but well-edited makeup line, and we’re happy to say most of the products have minimal or no fragrance. There are a few exceptions which are noted in our individual reviews.
