Guess what I found at the CCO? The ever so elusive Tom Ford Skin Illuminating Powder in Moonlight. If you havent heard of this Tom Ford highlighter, you have clearly been living under a rock. It certainly went through its stalkerazzi phase on the internets where it seemed like every beauty blogger and youtube guru just had to have this a few years ago.
I believe this was part of a limited collection when it first came out. but it was so immensely popular that they added it to the Tom Ford permanent beauty/cosmetics collection. I love highlighters and blush, and have noticed quite the small stash of highlighters growing in my collection so I was quite geeked to add this.
This one is top of the line folks. And has the corresponding price tag. I picked it up at the CCO for roughly 30% off the retail price; and that’s a big part of why I picked it up. This palette has two shades, an almost translucent frosty shade and the more coppery champagne shade. You could swish your brush over both shades if you wanted.
My thoughts on this!
I am not a 100% sold on the white shade. If i use a heavy hand it just really turns into a shiny ashy look. Don’t get me wrong, it glows, but more in that ghouilish manner that will work for halloween. ummm, might have to look into that.
The second shade – well that is right up my alley. in fact, it looks like all the other highlighters that I own. I may not buy dupes in eyeshadows but I sure do in highlighters!
What about you? Have you picked this up at Tom Ford highlighter at full price? Would you pick it up for 30% off? Would love to know more about your spending habits!
