Quite possibly my favorite purchase from Tom Ford, this Fall 2015 limited edition Skin Illuminating Powder Duo 01 Moodlight ($80, .42 oz/12 g) is a stunner! While photos speak a thousand words, seeing it in person elevates this elusive palette (currently backordered at Nordstrom, out of stock Neiman Marcus website, available for pre-order at Saks) to stellar level multifold.

It features two versatile shades, soft off-white to to mimic daylight glow and rose bronze to illuminate and add dimension to face. Both are subtly pigmented but buildable to your preference. It is elegantly housed in Tom Ford’s signature compact with decent-sized mirror to boot. Applied individually or layered, the effect is screaming fabulous!

Reality check. I’m not really into highlighters because I have very obvious pores I’d rather hide but trust me on this babe! Applied sparingly vis-a-vis carefully concentrating on the high points of your face, this illuminator is your best face ally. I have swatched both shades heavily and compared it to Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow palette (reviewed here) for your better appreciation.

Let’s see how both shades look on my face (I lightly applied rose bronze on the hollows of my cheek then layered with off white on cheekbones).

    So pretty. I wish I could buy all the Tom Ford I loved since this would be on my list for sure.

    I found myself drooling over here, this is beautiful and to me looks so much nicer than the CT one 🙂

    Gorgeous! I'm getting one of these when they're back in stock at Nordies 🙂

    Actually, scratch that previous statement – I'm buying it tomorrow from either Bergdorf's or Bloomingdale's where they are still in stock – looks like this one is selling out fast.
