Even though I have countless palettes already, I just had to get the Tom Ford Eye and Cheek palette. I let the 2014 summer palette escape me (that blue!) so I had to get this even though I was a bit wary of that plum shade on my eyelids.
The packaging is simply gorgeous. The white screams luxe although I question how clean the white suede casing will stay with constant handling. I love how sleek and slim the compact is.
The eye and cheek compact consists of three eyeshadow shades and a blush and a highlighter. The finger swatches done at the store blew me away. They felt creamy and dense to the touch even though they were powder.
The eyeshadows consist of a pearly white eyeshadow with a pink tinge which I typically use to highlight my brows or use on the inner corner of my eye lids. A sparkly topper shade and a dark plummy accent shade. The plum blush is quite intense and should be applied with the lightest hand. The eye shadows lasted on my eyelids, the topper shade adhered well without fall out and the blush stayed on my cheeks without my having to reapply.

This Pink Glow palette is surprisingly wearable for my skintone. The plum accent shade did not give my eyelids a bruised effect, instead it looks more exciting and refreshing as compared to my normal neutral eye looks. The quality of the all the products in this palette is outstanding, at its price, it is a big splurge but one I am very happy to make.
