Tom Ford Fall 2012 Blush: Narcissist


Tom Ford has released a new blush for fall, a vibrant hot pink satin called Narcissist ($55 for .28 oz/8 g). The pigment is rich and intense but easily blendable with a soft loose brush (I've used MAC's skunk brush to apply). It is indeed very bright on the skin/face (probably the brightest blush I own) but if applied and blended, it gives a lovely healthy pink flush. There is a soft satiny texture to the color - those familiar with Tom Ford Blushes know the texture is phenomenal. Although these are probably the most expensive blushes on the market, I think they are among the best in texture, pigment, and color. Some of his blushes have a more visible shimmer (like Ravish and Wicked, see them all swatched on Karla Sugar). Narcissist does have shimmer but it's so subtle it's not really apparent on the face. I like that it has shimmer because it prevents the color from being flat. Narcissist Blush and the two nail polishes, Minx and Dominatrix are the only items I purchased from the fall collection (sight unseen). The high price points make me unwilling to splurge without testing first. Also, the fall collection seems to be a mixture of intense bright colors I usually don't wear (not really me, but still pretty). Rouge Deluxe has all the new items swatched.

My Tom Ford Fall 2012 picks:




Lightly tapped into MAC's skunk brush, you see a lot of pigment:

Tom Ford Narcissist is the brightest pink I own. Here are a few others for comparison:



Overall I really adore Tom Ford Narcissist. The color is gorgeous, pigmented, blendable and looks beautiful on the skin. I can't say I think it's a must have though, simply because the price is so high. At this time I don't know whether the fall items are permanent or limited, but I purchased mine from Saks.

    1. Thanks Dovey! I was surprised at how bright it was too. I suspect MAC has some vibrant pro colors even brighter (perhaps?) but yes, this TF and Chanel Tweed Fuschia are the brightest I've seen -EVER!

  19. This blush scares me:( I would be so scared of ending looking clownish that I would never use it! Looks amazing in the pan though.
