Round-up: Tom Ford Soleil Collection Overview & Thoughts

Tom Ford Soleil Collection is a shimmering, warm-toned collection of eyeshadows, cheek colors, and lip colors. There were several great products in the collection with a few so-so shades, though no total misses. The one downside is that three of the four duos feature a Cream Color for Eyes that has been previously released, so for those who have been collecting them, it will seem redundant. My favorite products were the Pink Glow Eye & Cheek Compact (A) and Golden Peach Duo (A). The collection is available for pre-order online at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Tom Ford.

Report Card

Tom Ford Summer 2015 Lip Color Sheers

For summer, there are four shades of Tom Ford Lip Color Sheers ($50.00 for 0.10 oz.) to choose from, but note that Paradiso and Sweet Spot are repromotes, as they were released last summer as well. The formula is supposed to give a “lustrous sheen of color” and be hydrating. Some shades are sheerer while others are nearly opaque but appear less “heavy” compared to the regular Lip Color formula. In general, they have less shine and more color than the Lip Color Shines. The formula has a vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Tom Ford Black Oyster Cream & Powder Eye Color

Tom Ford Black Oyster Cream & Powder Eye Color ($60.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a set designed to give you an ultra sparkly, smoky eye. It pairs a sparkly silver powder eyeshadow with a silver-sparkled black cream eyeshadow together. When layered, the silver powder eyeshadow intensifies the sparkle and finish of the cream eyeshadow, but it doesn’t alter the color much. Of the four duos, this was my least favorite, as the powder eyeshadow was under-performing, though the cream eyeshadow performed well.

Tom Ford Midnight Sea Cream & Powder Eye Color

Tom Ford Midnight Sea Cream & Powder Eye Color ($60.00 for 0.31 oz.) contains a sparkling, bluish-teal powder eyeshadow paired with a smoky taupe-brown cream eyeshadow, which you may know has Spring 2015, as it was released previously. The performance of the powder eyeshadow was better in this duo than the other two, and the cream eyeshadow performed as well this time as it did previously–that is to say, excellently. Layered, the two create a dirty, blackened blue-teal with a very sparkly, metallic sheen.

Tom Ford Naked Bronze Cream & Powder Eye Color

Tom Ford Naked Bronze Cream & Powder Eye Color ($60.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a mix of glittering gold and warm, coppery bronze, which you may know as Spice (previously released on its own). When the gold eyeshadow is patted over the bronze cream eyeshadow, you get a lighter, more sparkly bronze that has a more subdued red undertone. They work well together as shades side-by-side or layered. The formula of the sparkly eyeshadow suffers from some fall out during wear, and it could be a bit more pigmented in its base color, while the cream eyeshadow is fantastic with rich color payoff and a smooth, blendable, long-wearing formula.
