Review & Usage

Tom Ford Cheek Brush is one of the softest and most luxurious brushes I own. The elegance of this brush is apparent with the off-white bristles against the polished gold ferrule. The dark brown lacquered handle is ideally weighted, making the brush well-balanced and very comfortable to hold. Its white goat hair is plush, dense, and bouncy, so a light tap of the tip of the brush into the blush pan will generally collect more than enough of the pigment for an application on the cheek, especially if the blush is pigmented. For a blush that is pale or has poor color payoff, simply swirl the brush in the pan a couple of times to allow the pigment to grab onto the bristles, then apply.

The fluffy bristles feel supremely soft against the skin making blending an absolute dream. In fact, blending is not even necessary as the brush seems to do all the work by itself. Hard edges are magically diffused as you apply to guarantee a flawless, natural-looking result every time. I also like how the bristles do not splay out too much during application making it an ideal blush brush when precision placement of the blush is desired.

Due to its versatile shape, the Tom Ford Cheek Brush can also be used to apply face powder, bronzer, highlighter, as well as foundation. The bristles are compatible with powder, cream, as well as liquid formula. The white bristles rarely shed and surprisingly, clean beautifully without leaving any stains behind. I always dry my brushes in Brush Guards to retain their shape, and this one is no exception.

The Tom Ford Cheek Brush is a must-have luxury blush brush worthy of investment. Elegant, unbeatable performance, it is simply perfection. :)

Footnote

The image of this brush on most retail websites is dome-shaped, which is inaccurate. The brush head present in this post is the accurate shape, which is similar to the one on the official Tom Ford website.
