Blushed : Review of Love Lust blush by Tom Ford

November 21, 2012

I’ve finally managed to review Tom Ford’s Love Lust blush after I’ve tested it in different ways and I couldn’t wait to share my thoughts about it with you guys!

If you follow me regularly then you might have seen this blush on the blog already. If you don’t, it’s never too late 😉

Tom Ford has by far the classiest packagings. I think we all agree on that… I mean, who doesn’t love gold plate with “Tom Ford” carved on it, on a luxurious blush packaging that comes in a soft pouch?
I have to say, I do feel like Queen Nefertiti only by holding it.

Before choosing the color, I did a little research on each and every blush color in their collection and compared them with what I had… Btw, I won this with Mai’s contest and I got to choose the color I wanted. Check out her blog here, she’s amazing!

After what I’ve seen and read on the net, I finally came down to Love Lust. Apparently it’s very similar to Orgasm by NARS (which I don’t own, unfortunately NARS isn’t available in the UAE anymore). Plus, I read that a pan can last for ages! 

Try taping your finger lightly on the blush, A LOT of product transfers to your finger as it is super pigmented!

It has a coral orange/pink color with gold shimmer (by far the shimmeriest blush in my collection) The blush is amazingly soft, it’s almost creamy! It has a velvety texture to it. It reminds me a bit of the UD eyeshadows as it is very blendable and looks a bit metallic in swatches. The color is buildable, you can achieve a soft flush or a dramatic night out look.

It looks absolutely divine when applied to the cheeks. That shimmer I’ve been talking about turns into a lovely sheen and it doesn’t emphasize my pores. And most importantly, it stays put during the whole day! (Reminder: I have oily skin)

Now Tom Ford is a high end brand and its price tags normally make people faint… Let’s say they’re not pocket friendly. But it’s definitely worth every penny! 
I’ve been using this every time I do my makeup now, whether it’s night or day I always have this blush on my cheeks. 
I believe this will last me for ages as a little goes a long way!

Have you ever tried Tom Ford products? Any recommendations? Leave a comment below 🙂
