I remember when I found out that Tom Ford was launching a makeup line. I studied the campaign featuring Lara Stone wearing beautiful russet tones, and couldn’t wait to recreate the look on myself. Since then, I have acquired a decent amount of products from the line, and today I bring you my favorites out of all of the items I have tried.
Yes, you can see pan in that Cognac Sable eyeshadow palette! This was my first Tom Ford beauty purchase, and, as you can see, it is very well-loved. It is my holy-grail palette, and is my go-to during the fall and winter, as well as for any event that I have, like a wedding or school banquet. The formula of these shadows is really smooth and blendable, and the pigmentation is excellent. For a really wearable brown smokey eye, I will take the medium brown shade all over my lids, the gold onto the inner corners, and line my upper lash line with the deepest shade.
The Shade and Illuminate palette makes contouring a breeze. I will apply the contour shade underneath my cheek bones and onto my temples with a finger, and then blend out quickly either with my fingers, or, with a Real Techniques Contour Brush. The highlight may be the most perfect one I have encountered – it adds a subtle glow that lasts all day, and is shimmer-free, which makes it look natural.
As for blush, the formula is very finely milled, and long-lasting. It never looks patchy throughout the day. Frantic Pink is a gorgeous peachy-pink with very fine gold shimmer – the perfect everyday shade.
Tom Ford beauty offers a nice variety of lip products – as you can see from above! All of the formulas are spot-on, and smell amazing [a hint of vanilla]. The Lip Shine [far left] has the most luxurious, most creamy formula of any lipstick-lip balm hybrid I have tried. It is quite thick, and feels incredibly moisturizing on the lips. Frolic is a gorgeous peachy-pink with very subtle shimmer, and is one of my summertime staples. The Lip Colour Sheers provide a bit more color, and have a lighter formula than the Lip Shines. Summer Fling, a pink with shimmer, is my favorite from the line.
One of my favorite fall-winter lip combos is Pink Dusk lipstick + Tawny Pink lip gloss. This pairing creates the most gorgeous, long-lasting, pinky-nude glossy lip.
