Tom Ford Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo has been a recent favourite of the Instagram beauty community. Since its availability in Singapore in August '15, stocks were snapped up fast. I got mine couple of months ago but has only gotten round to writing about it now. (I apologise for the delay, I was really tied up back in September & October!)
This baby consists of two shades :
Moodlight (Daylight) - a pale whitish gold with a luminous sheen. This colour goes on sheer & natural, and is buildable to a metallic cream sheen. It wears well on most skin tones, creating a natural dimension to facial features without the usual harshness of a white highlighter. As the name subtly suggests, wearing this during the day is a breeze.
Moodlight (Candlelight) - a soft, rose gold with a metallic sheen. It looks pinker in the pan than it really is when applied. On my warm skin tone, it reflects more of a brownish beige tone. Still natural-looking, but significantly more obvious as compared to Daylight. I personally use this on my eyelids more than any other part of my face. I get more generous with application during the night time with this shade though.
Swatches & My Thoughts on this product

This Tom Ford Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo also holds a decent amount of product that you know you will probably take three lifetimes to finish! The powder is silky fine and is well-pressed so it doesn't flake off and mess up your compact. Armed with a mirror and NO brushes, you will need to prepare a good-quality highlighter brush before you dip into this "pot of gold".

Hope you enjoy this post (especially the video! Haha!) as much as I did creating it. It's my first time doing a video so it looks super amateur but I am hoping to get better at this with time, and posting more on Youtube in future!
Let me know how you think in the box below! Alternatively, if you like this post, you can just give me a thumbs-up on the video itself on Youtube. Thank you lovelies!!
