Sneak Peek: Tom Ford Pink Glow Summer 2015 Eye and Cheek Compact

Hi, everyone! I'm knee-deep in dissertation work at the moment (defending in 6 days- eek!), but in the spirit of pushing forward with my blog amidst the furious prep, I have a short, but very sweet, post for you today! When I found out that Tom Ford's Summer 2015 collection was being released at Holt Renfrew within days of my finishing grad school, I knew I had to snag a piece in celebration of the milestone. I pre-ordered the star of the collection, the Pink Glow Eye and Cheek Compact and was thrilled to pick it up late last week! 


The palette features three gorgeous eye shadows and two shimmering cheek colours. Dreamy doesn't cover it. It's heavenly! I have yet to swatch or even swipe the shades- I feel guilty even looking at it before I pass my defense!- but I promise a full review and accompanying makeup look as soon as I've achieved PhD status :)

Have you picked up any new makeup goodies lately? What have you been swooning over? Anyone else fall prey to Tom Ford's Summer collection?

Have an amazing day :)
