The Soleil Contouring Compact retails for $108 for 0.74 oz and can currently be found at Sephora, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and the Tom Ford site.

Tom Ford:  His first luxurious face palette with the Soleil Contouring Compact, featuring three sensual summer shades in one limited-edition, ivory- and gold-colored compact. The blush, highlighter and bronzer inside add natural dimension and sensuous color to your skin with cream-like powder formulas that glide effortlessly onto your face for a soft, even finish. Vibrant coral blush gives your cheeks the perfect flush of color; nude highlighter mimics the sun reflecting off the skin; and sultry bronzer enhances your healthy radiance. Use the shades alone or together to contour. Each provides sheer-to-medium coverage that is both matte and radiant.

This will obviously vary greatly depending on  your skin tone, but this is my opinion coming from an NC10 (yellow-base extremely pale) person.  Is it worth it? No.

Why?

The bronzer on my skin tone turns more of an orange shade.  The highlighter isn’t light enough compared to how pale I am but I suspect this palette was built for the majority of skin tones and not the minority.  The blush does work and look nicely on me.  I do not hate the palette I just don’t reach for it much and considering its price, thats unfortunate.  As a collector of TF though I will always keep it around and use it on occasion. This palette may be super amazing for those of you that are medium skin toned.  That would be my guess.  This is my favorite look that I did using the face palette.  On the lips I used Jeffree Star Rose Matter Velour Liquid Lipstick.
