Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Brush Review


I know that people are going to think I am crazy for spending this much on two Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate brushes, but I just needed them. Since I bought my Tom Ford Bronzer Brush, I have wanted to try out more of them and from Tom Ford as a whole. I know that these brushes are crazy expensive, but from what I have seen so far, the quality of these brushes is just like nothing I have ever tried before, so I needed to get my hands on more of them. I thought since I was such a big fan of cream contouring and highlighting, I would get brushes dedicated to them and these Tom Ford ones seemed perfect for that.

Once my foundation has been applied and it is in place, that is when I reach for these Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate brushes. I will use one of the brushes to apply my cream highlighter underneath the eyes, down the bridge of the nose and in the centre of the forehead and the chin. Then, I will take my other brush and apply my cream contour product to the top of the forehead, underneath the cheekbones, down the sides of the nose and then underneath the jawline. Then, once all of the creams are in place, I will grab a large blending brush to mix everything all together.



I think that these brushes really are perfect for this because of the shape, size and density of the bristles. Because the bristles aren’t very long, and they are pretty flat, they are great for picking up product and laying it down just in the area where you want it. Plus, because the edge of the brush has a precise edge it allows you to get a sharp contour and highlight down the nose or underneath the cheekbones. I really think that everything about these brushes are perfect and I love reaching for them because they do such a beautiful job and always apply the perfect amount of product.

I know that I said at the start of the post that I wanted to try these brushes because the quality of Tom Ford products as a whole is just on a whole other level. After using these Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Brushes for a couple of months now, I can honestly say that the quality is just out of this world. I have tried many makeup brushes over the years and none of them has even been comparable to these brushes. I know that some people have reservations about these brushes because they are expensive, and these were £59 each, but I would happily pay that again because they are amazing!

Like I said, I have been using these brushes for quite a few months now and that means that they have been washed quite a few times during that period of time and each and every time they are washed, they come out looking as good as new. No matter what I wash them with, or how I wash them, they retain the quality and spring back to as if they are new and out of the box. Also, through all of the using and washing, I have never noticed a single hair shed from these brushes, which is to be expected from a brush that is this expensive, but it is nice to know!



I guess the most important question that I have to ask myself at the end of this review is would I recommend these brushes to other people and the simple answer to that question is yes. If you are trying to build up a collection of makeup brushes that are a lovely quality and that will last you for years, I really would recommend looking no further than these. I know that they re a leap with how expensive they are, but in my opinion, they are worth every single penny and I love reaching for them. I use every single day and I always love how they pick up and apply the product.

I will leave this review here, before I ramble on much more. I will leave a link to this brush down below in case you want to check it out for yourself. These Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate brushes are of an amazing quality and I know that I am going to love them for a very long time indeed. Make sure to leave me a comment and let me know if you have tried these out or if you ever would!

  3. I've seen these brushes in a shop once and thought... hm, maybe I should get these? I don't use bronzer nor highlighter, so I think I have to look for some for eyeshadows.
