Private Life (01)

Tom Ford Private Life (01) Soleil Lip Foil ($53.00 for 0.10 oz.) is light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but opaque coverage wans’t possible.

The Soleil Lip Foil formula is described as having a “vibrant, reflective-foil finish” that goes on with “smooth, even application for brilliant, luxurious vibrancy.” The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and thinner with minimal slip, so I was surprised to find some of the color gathered in my lip lines after applying it. I found the formula to be lightly moisturizing over the four hours it lasted, though. I think this would work better layered over another lipstick or lip pencil.

Bestie

Tarte Bestie Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint ($20.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a muted, rosy pink with strong, warm brown udnertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that went on smoothly and evenly, though it looked a little streaky initially–but it seemed to self-level and dry down to a streak-free finish.

The Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint (whew! that’s a mouthful) is supposed to have full coverage, matte finish, be kiss-proof, and lasts “all day.” Most of their claims are accurate; it had good pigmentation, was matte, and didn’t transfer, though it only wore for five and a half hours, so it’s not the most long-wearing lipsticks I’ve come across (particularly when it comes to liquid lipstick formulas). It was lightly drying, and it had a softer, more natural feel on the lips that wasn’t as prone to cracking or weighing lips down.

Ombres Lamées de Chanel

Chanel Ombres Lamées de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette ($105.00 for 0.49 oz.) is undeniably more intricate and stunning upon arrival than most powders, but the question is whether the product–once the overspray is removed–actually lives up to the three digit price tag. There are six narrow strips with different designs, but there are actually only three unique shades. I wish the colors were contained with two strips in a row, rather than alternating, because it would make each area about a third of the pan and totally usable with a brush. It doesn’t work as well as average-sized eye brushes and is one better suited for detail brushes or if you don’t mind mixing shades.

The good news is that it was wearable and resulted in a decent look, but I don’t think the eyeshadows are particularly amazing (and they are, at least, dupable). They could be more pigmented and less dusty. The upside is that the palette itself contained a massive amount of product, so at least they didn’t skimp on that! The included brushes are decent, though I think they are still too large (especially the rounded crease brush) for using the shades individually. (They are better quality than the normal applicators that come in Chanel’s palettes, so that is likely part of the “justification” of the price tag.)

It’s supposed to launch exclusively on the 28th, but there is early access through Chanel Ombres Lamées de Chanel Eyeshadow Palettethis link.

Tails & Top Hats

LORAC Tails & Top Hats Eyeshadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.41 oz.) contains seven eyeshadows housed in a slim, cardboard palette with a mirror under the lid. While it seemed compact, it contained quite a bit of product! I was more impressed by this palette than I anticipated, as the eyeshadows were pigmented with soft, blendable textures and lasted a decent length of time. The formula runs thinner and soft enough that it can be dusty, so it will wear longer over a primer for sure, but I didn’t have any trouble getting pigmentation or applying them without primer.

This palette is exclusive to Ulta as a Black Friday doorbuster, which means that it will be available today (November 24th) at 5PM CT.
