I picked up two items from Tom Ford Summer this year–first, a refill of Tom Ford Gold Dust Bronzer ($98) as a replacement for one that I’ve used to pan. But the new item that created the most excitement is Tom Ford Bicoastal Blush ($78). I find this formula, which echoes the same from the Moonlight Sculpting duo, to be excellent. As others have warned, I’m sure that Tom Ford Bicoastal will sell out quickly. Please move quickly.

Tom Ford Bicoastal is currently available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Sephora (this goes in and out of stock here).

Tom Ford Bicoastal includes a highly pigmented deep pink-red blush that applies with virtually no powdery texture. It melds beautifully to the skin to delivery a soft healthy glowing color. As its name suggests, there is an additional soft pink highlight shade included that provides a highly sophisticated cool shimmer. I absolutely adore Bicoastal–to me, this is going to make a top ten list of 2016. The soft glowing look that it imparts gives life and youth, and these are beautiful colors that are face-brigtening to an entire range of skin tones. Yes, you need this one.

Of course, I’m a big fan of Tom Ford Gold Dust as well. Liz has worn this in countless photographs on this blog, and in her real life. I find myself reaching for Gold Dust on my high-stress days, when I know I want to look cool, confident, and softly tanned. I love it.


I’ll look at Tom Ford Summer at least one more time before I decide whether I’ve gotten everything that I love from it. However, I knew that Bicoastal blush was a must-have, given my love for this incredible texture. This is well worth your attention. Please do not hesitate on this one–it’s beautiful.

  1. Hi Amy! Could you please tell me what brush you recommend for best application for very pale skin? Do you put the “highlighter” over the blush or on the top? Thankyou very much!!??

    • Hi Wendy, I’d start with a fan brush. But I’m enjoying the MAC 159--you can see how much you have on your brush and adjust the pressure to control the application.

      If you use more of a blush brush, get ready to blend, blend, blend the edges out. Go lightly like Chanel Turbulent (it’s not quite that pigmented but treat it nearly so). I put the highlighter over the blush (but place the highlighter closer to the upper cheek compared to the blush).

      • Thank you Amy!! I really like that MAC brush!! And the gold dust bronzer!! Will order both soon! Oh, and a fan brush too!! When are your next reviews? I’m sure I’m not the only 1 who gets ultra-excited when you post!!! Xo? p.s. Thanks for the link to the brush!!

        • They should be getting more frequent, thank you Wendy. My schedule is currently shifting around, and I miss it so much!

    • Hi Wendy,

      Another brush that works very well when applying heavily pigmented or dark blush shades is the Wayne Goss #14. It’s a round, squirrel brush with long, flexible hair in a dome shape (you can see it on Beautylish). It’s small enough in diameter to easily pick up just one of the colors at a time if you don’t want to mix them. It can be used to stroke if you want a precise look or swirl if you want a more diffused look. It does an excellent job of depositing the amount of color you want and softening the edges.

      Any soft fan brush of small to medium size works well for depositing blush on fair skin, but the Goss #14 is more versatile. Bonus points: It is one of those beautifully crafted Japanese brushes that is über soft and a treat to use.
