Included in this year’s Tom Ford Summer Collection is this Bronzing Powder in 01 Gold Dust, which is not a new product from Tom Ford (it has been available in the US and most other countries since last summer). However for us in Hong Kong, this Bronzing Powder (along with the other shade 02 Terra) is a new addition to the Hong Kong line-up.
This bronzer and the Fire Lust Skin Illuminator are the first products that caught my eye in the collection. I skipped Fire Lust during my first visit because I have too many highlighters at the moment, and since summer is right round the corner, I decided that a bronzer would come in handier for the season.The Bronzing Powder comes in a sleek metallic mahogany and gold packaging. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and feels weighty despite being a rather thin compact. The huge mirror in the compact is another reason why I love this powder, it’s great for travelling!This bronzing powder comes with a good amount of product (21g) which justifies the high price ($90 USD/$700 HKD). The recent Nude Tan Paradise Duo from Dior’s Summer collection is $56 USD for just 9.5g of product, so Gold Dust is not that expensive when compared.Gold Dust is a warm golden brown with fine gold shimmers. The glitters are subtle so people like me who has combination/oily skin won’t have to worry. The powder is very fine, and works perfectly with Tom Ford’s own Bronzer Brush (which has recently become available in Hong Kong finally!). It creates an amazing sunkissed glow. And with such a large pan of product, it makes it very easy to apply with any brushes, especially with the Tom Ford Bronzer Brush.
I have been using this bronzer everyday since I got this, and I just love the natural sunkissed glow that it creates. It’s long-wearing that it stays on for at least 10-12 hours.
Once again this is a new product for us in Asian countries, so I urge you all to give this a try. In my opinion it’s worth every penny and just imagine how long you’ll be able to use this for!
