I had a choice between this Sheer Cheek Duo Palette in Bicoastal ($78) and the Soleil Contouring Compact; I chose this one. Why? It's a bit different and doesn't necessarily repeat palettes, compacts, or colors I already have.
Tom Ford Beauty describes Bicoastal this way...
Cheeks go both ways with Bocoastal, a pair of petal-perfect pinks that give a light-reflective finish to bronzed summer skin. A soft pink highlighter and a bold rose blush can be applied wet for a soft veil of color or dry for a sweeping pop of vibrancy. Use the shades alone or together [or mixed] for long-lasting color that blends easily. Embossed with the Tom Ford logo.
I haven't tried to apply the shades with a wet brush yet. I find it interesting that they are described as being more sheer that way (a "soft veil of color").
Tom Ford Beauty is sold online and at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman, Blomingdale's, and Sephora. If you need help, I highly recommend Debbie O'Malley. She's a pro. You can reach her at (202) 966-9700, extension 2253.
