I am going to share with you my Tom Ford Face Brushes. If you have been following me on instagram, you’d notice how much I love Tom Ford brushes. In the past 1.5 years, I have been collecting these three brushes which I am absolutely in love with. I started off with my Tom Ford Cheek brush and I have been enjoying the brush so much that I decided to get the cram foundation brush and the bronzer brush.
Cream Foundatiom Brush Review
I bought the cream foundation brush in Singapore. The brush was retailing for SGD 100-SGD120 (I couldn’t remember the exact price). I mainly use it for contouring my cheek bone area.
As you can see in the picture above, Tom Ford Cream Foundation Brush is the smallest compared to the Cheek brush and the Bronzer brush. The brush is densely packed and it is very soft. The size helps me to apply bronzer to the cheek bone area easilly. Other than for contouring, I am also using this brush to apply cream blush like Le Blush Creme de Chanel. It works very well to apply the cream blush; it picks up the pigments very well and blend the color into my skin nicely. I have never used this brush to apply cream foundation as I don’t use cream foundation in my make up regime.
This brush is made of white goat hair. I am in love hate relationship with white hair brush. White brush makes the brush looks luxurious and there won’t be cases where the color of the brush will be transfered during brush wash time. However if you have been using the brush regularly for more than a year, you may find that the color of the brush is more yellowish rather than white.
Bronzer brush is the latest brush from Tom Ford which I acquired. My mum helped me to get this brush while she visited USA about 3 months ago as this brush is not available in Singapore. This brush is retailing for USD 115.
As the name suggests, this brush is meant to apply bronzer all over your face. However I don’t use bronzer for the sake of creating tan look over my face. I mainly use bronzer for sculpting and defining my face shape. I use this brush to swirl it all over my face after finishing my make up to make sure that everything is well blended.

On Washing These Brushes
I use these brushes frequently. For the cheek brush, I can say that I use it almost everyday. For the cheek brush, I make sure that i always wash the brush every week. And for the bronzer brush and cream foundation brush, I wash it once in two weeks or when it is necessary.
I’m going to talk about my cheek brush as I have using that for more than a year. For the first 9 months, the hair of the brush does not shed at all. However after the firdt 9 months, I can see 1-2 hairs had shed. I think this is fine as I have been using this brush religiously almost everday. Moreover I don’t see the handle of the brush becoming rusty at all. The gold handle remains the same after more than a year of using it. I hope the same goes to my bronzer brush and cream foundation brush after a year of using it.
I personally take these 3 brushes as top 10 favorite brushes on my stash. Looking at the quality of the brushes, there’s no reason for me not to like these brushes. The hair is dense, smooth and the design of the brush looks very hefty and luxurious. The only down side of these brushes is the price. With the price tag of SGD 100+, I don’t think these brushes are must have. However, if you want to have superb quality brushes without having to worry much about the quality for the next few years, these brushes are worthy to have. I’d highly recommend the cheek brush as it is the most versatile brush among the three. The cheek brush can be used for blush application, and also bronzer or even powder.
