Sneak Peek: Tom Ford Soleil Collection Photos + Swatches

Tom Ford Soleil Collection will be available shortly, and the brand seems to potentially be making a debut Sephora on April 1st (for cosmetics included in this launch!) specifically. Several items I received as press samples, and the remainder I pre-ordered for, but a lot of what I pre-ordered (all but one item) ended up being on backorder, so I’m not sure what availability will be at other retailers who have taken pre-orders, as a heads up. I ended up cancelling all but one of my pre-orders and ordering when it launched at Nordstrom.

Tom Ford Starry Night Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Starry Night Eyeshadow Quad
Tom Ford Starry Night Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Starry Night Eyeshadow Quad ($80.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a middling group of cooler silvers/grays–a smoky eye with a hint of blue–but disappoints across the board. If you tend to like your eyeshadows sheerer, it might still fill those requirements, but the lack of blendability in the darkest shade makes it a lot less foolproof to use, even accounting for preference towards sheerer coverage.

Starry Night #1 is a pale, bluish gray with cool undertones and a pearl shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage with a thin, dusty consistency that was prone to sheering out. This needs a good base to adhere to or else has a very sheer, faded appearance on the skin. It lasted for seven hours before fading noticeably. theBalm #34 (P, $6.50) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Oyster Mushroom (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Rondelle (LE, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Tarina Tarantino Lovely #1 (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Eclectic #3 (LE) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D118 Platinum (P, $21.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Parisian Sky #3 (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Cheers (P) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I120 Snow Gray (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Dark Energy #2 (LE, $21.00) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Just Breathe #1 (LE, $21.00) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Starry Night #2 is a bright, silvery lilac with cool undertones and flecks of metallic silver and warmer lavender-pink sparkle and micro-glitter. The base is semi-sheer but has a heavy dosage of glitter, so it had more semi-opaque coverage overall. The texture was lightly creamy and almost wet-like to the touch. The glittery bits applied smoothly and evenly over the skin, and while not immune from fall out, it was only a minor amount after eight hours (pretty good for no adhesive base). Tom Ford Beauty Lilac Dream #2 (P) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Sex & Disco (LE, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ice Queen #2 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Cle de Peau Silver Eclipse #3 (P) is darker (90% similar). MAC Electric Illumination (LE, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Starry Night #3 is a muted, medium gray with subtle, cool undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that was a little thin but not too dusty or powdery. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. NARS Indes Galantes (Left) (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Chateau (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Thunder and Rain #1 (LE, $21.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Trumpeter Koel (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC A Waft of Grey #3 (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Smoky #3 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Tink (DC, $5.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Smoky Sequins #4 (LE) is darker (85% similar). Hourglass Graphite #4 (P) is darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Dios (LE) is more muted, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Starry Night #4 is a faded, dark navy blue with a pearly sheen. It had disappointing color payoff with a firmer consistency that made it harder to apply and blend out on the skin. The color lasted for six and a half hours before fading on me. MAC A Sprinkle of Blues #2 (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Minx (LE, $19.00) is more muted, darker (90% similar). MAC Imaginary (P, $18.50) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Nautica (P, $6.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). MAC Indigo Blend #2 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Moonlight Blue (LE) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Blue Velvet (LE, $16.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Tory Burch Beauty Midnight (P) is warmer, less shimmery (85% similar). Dior Atlantique #3 (LE) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Ravageur & Stolen Cherry Patent Finish Lip Colors

Tom Ford Ravageur Patent Finish Lip Color
Tom Ford Ravageur Patent Finish Lip Color

Tom Ford Ravageur Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark copper-red with warm undertones and a faint dusting of gold micro-shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly while feeling comfortable and hydrating while worn. The color wore for over eight hours while the glossiness lasted for five hours on me. I couldn’t think of any dupes for this one–doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of darker, warmer copper/reds in gloss form like this shade.

Tom Ford Stolen Cherry Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a light shine. This was the least glossy of the eight shades I tried. It had mostly opaque coverage, applied well, and lasted for hours and hours, but I wish it had more of the high-gloss shine of the other shades. This looks like a soft satin after four hours of wear. Urban Decay 69 (P, $26.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Last Minute (P, $24.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). MAC Victoriana (LE, $15.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Socialite (-, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Tenor Voice (LE, $15.00) is glossier, brighter, lighter (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #400 Four Hundred (P, $38.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $15.00) is darker (90% similar). NYX Apple Crisp (P, $5.99) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty No Vacancy (P, $52.00) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Rouge Parade (920) (LE, $30.00) is glossier, more muted, darker (90% similar). Cle de Peau Bugatti Red (17) (P, $48.00) is glossier, more muted, darker (90% similar). MAC Ruby Woo (LE, $15.00) is glossier, brighter (90% similar). MAC Tease Don't Touch (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Send Me Sailing (LE, $15.00) is glossier, more muted, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “lip stain with an ultra-glossy finish” that has “intense, vibrant color” and “long-lasting high shine.” The formula feels lightweight, almost watery, when initially applied but thickens and feels more like a moderately tacky gel after thirty to forty seconds. It had great staying power with the glossiness lasting for six hours and the color itself still going strong eight to ten hours later (after two meals and coffee)–by the end of the day, it has more of a natural sheen to it (like a lip stain) but looked even. I would forget that I was wearing it, which is a testament to how comfortable and hydrating it was throughout the day. The coverage is nearly opaque but has that slight translucency that you would expect to see in a lip stain. I didn’t experience feathering or bleeding on these two shades. It has a strong, vanilla cake scent–not your typical vanilla but something sweeter–and noticeably stronger than other Tom Ford lip products. The formula reminds me of products like YSL Glossy Stains, Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer but with a slightly thicker consistency. It’s a click-style product with a flocked, slanted applicator where the liquid color flows from. I’m not particularly fond of the applicator, though it is not rough or hard to use, but the flocking makes it harder to get really precise, clean edges (sometimes I felt like it gave a more jagged edge).

Tom Ford Exposed & No Vacancy Patent Finish Lip Colors

Tom Ford Exposed Patent Finish Lip Color

Tom Ford Exposed Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark reddish-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a creamy, high-shine finish. The color payoff was mostly opaque with a translucency to it that gave it that stain-like appearance. The consistency was lightweight, comfortable to wear, but it does have moderate tackiness.

Tom Ford No Vacancy Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium red with warm, orange tones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had rich, nearly opaque pigmentation with even, smooth application that lasted all day. The shine was going strong for five to six hours, but the color remained just as vibrant with more of a natural sheen for hours after. NARS No. 54 (P, $26.00) is more muted (95% similar).

Tom Ford Caviar, Midnight Violet, Sphinx Cream Color for Eyes

Tom Ford Caviar Cream Color for Eyes
Tom Ford Caviar Cream Color for Eyes

Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) has eight new shades for spring. According to Tom Ford PR, the Cream Color for Eyes shades are limited edition, though a couple of stores/counters have said differently (and some have agreed). Worth noting, the jars are different and contain less, while the price has increased; the shade released last spring was $42 for 0.21 oz. and these are $45 for 0.17 oz. The jar is slightly taller with a shorter diameter. Practically speaking, I don’t think the missing amount is going to be “felt” by the user as they have been rather large, but I was disappointed to see the squeeze on both ends–price and quantity.

The Cream Color for Eyes formula is supposed to be “ultra-pigmented” and “metallic” with a “creamy formula” that doesn’t “crease or smudge.” The majority of the shades I’ve tried in the range live up to those things–good pigmentation but can be applied sheerly (use less and/or apply with a fluffy brush) or kept opaque (a little goes a long way) with eight to twelve hours of wear (no primer). They’re blendable and dry down fast enough not to crease too easily while you’re working on them but not so quickly that they don’t budge. I did find that a couple of the new shades were more emollient than past shades and did have a longer dry down time and were harder to keep out of creases (in this review, that would be Caviar, but it seemed to eek by just fast enough to set without creasing early on).

Tom Ford Caviar Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a dark, grayish black with silver pearl that gives it a strong sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage with a creamy, blendable texture that had a little more slip than the average shade in the formula but not so much that it took too long to dry down (so it didn’t gather in the creases as it set). The color lasted for nine and a half hours before creasing on me. Estee Lauder Grey Amber (LE) is less glossy (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Paris #4 (P) is warmer, less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Retrograde (LE, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Santeria (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Diane (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Asphalt (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Illamasqua Graphica (P) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Midnight Violet Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark plum purple with warm undertones and a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. It had opaque coverage that could be applied with a lighter touch or blended out for sheerer coverage, if desired, though it was harder to keep coverage even and sheer (I think it may be slightly too emollient). The color lasted for ten hours before creasing slightly. Illamasqua Queen of the Night (P, $25.50) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Drama Queen (P, $6.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Bondage (LE, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Uncut (P, $19.00) is warmer, brighter (85% similar). Dior Hypnotique (881) (P, $31.00) is warmer, more muted, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Sphinx Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm pink sparkle and shimmer that gives it more of a duochrome shift. This is one of the more sparkly shades from spring with larger particles in it, but I don’t get much fall out once it dries down and I leave it alone–the sparkles will drop down if blended while drying down/dry. The texture is lightweight, creamy, and blendable on the skin with good color payoff. It lasted for nine hours before creasing on me. NARS Outer Limits (LE, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). Lancome Midnight Haze (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Outer Limits (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Givenchy Palette Ors Audacieux #4 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek In the Spotlight (P, $9.99) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Fireball (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Gem (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Unpredictable (P, $19.00) is brighter, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Urban Decay Jones (LE, $19.00) is brighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Mai Tai (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Stellar (P, $20.00) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). theBalm Faithful (P, $16.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
