Tom Ford’s beauty collection was eagerly awaited by many, and once it hit stores it wasn’t long before some pieces started to stand out above the rest. One of those was the shade and illuminate; the packaging alone is enough reason to buy it. The compact itself is beautiful and makes for a perfect gift, however the real reason to buy this item is how these two simple shades can help transform the face, choose intensity one if the recipient hasn’t used this before so they can become accustom to the product before moving to intensity two, which is more suited to those ‘in the know.’ A great accompanying item to this product is the illuminating powder which helps remove imperfections and create a natural, matt finish. These two items would make a great gift as they are great make up basics that any woman would enjoy wearing.
