This is a new addition to the Tom Ford Bronzing Powder range. Similarly, it is available in the smaller size (which is what is shown in the review) as well as a larger size. It is more subdued and more yellow-based than the other two shades. The texture was a little drier and didn’t blend out easily as the other shades, which was a disappointment. It had a thinner feel that seemed smooth, but there was a dryness present that made it prone to sticking in certain places but not wanting to diffuse or stretch across the skin for even coverage. It had decent color payoff and wore for eight hours on me.

Tom Ford Revolve Around Me, Solar Affair, Temptation Waits Ultra-Rich Lip Colors

Tom Ford Revolve Around Me Ultra-Rich Lip Color
Tom Ford Revolve Around Me Ultra-Rich Lip Color

Tom Ford Revolve Around Me Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium peachy-beige with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly, but it was the least even of the six (it also seemed the least pigmented). Some of the color gathered and emphasized lip lines when applied. I think this one would benefit from a lip liner or filling primer. It wore for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Scandola (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NARS Besame Mucho (LE, $29.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Little Darling (DC, $26.00) is less shimmery, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Pure Pout (P, $23.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Freckletone (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

Tom Ford Solar Affair Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, coral-orange with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny finish. This one had a heavier, more cream-like appearance than other shades, which looked more like stains than traditional lipstick. The texture was a little denser and thicker on. It had nearly opaque coverage as well. The color wore for four hours and was hydrating. Estee Lauder Heavenly (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Fancy Kiss (LE, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Style Surge (P, $23.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

MAC Obi Orange (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Temptation Waits Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and fine gold micro-shimmer dusted through it. It had mostly opaque coverage, though there’s a translucency there that allows some of the tones of the natural lip color to still influence the end result. The consistency was lightweight, emollient, and comfortable to wear with light hydration over the four and a half hours it lasted. Maybelline Untainted Spice (950) (P, $7.49) is cooler (95% similar). Estee Lauder Dangerous (P, $32.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Backdoor (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Cognac (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Tom Ford Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new lipstick formula in the summer collection. It’s supposed to have “full coverage, high-shine lip color” that hydrates and lasts for six hours. The pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to mostly opaque, but they have moderate slip and a thinner texture that they never reach full coverage. The formula does have a luminous finish with slight shine but isn’t glossy. It’s a very lightweight formula, which makes it comfortable to wear, but the more emollient, thinner consistency seemed to hurt longevity–they lasted between three and five hours for me. The formula was lightly to moderately hydrating on me–more hydrating than Tom Ford’s standard lipstick on the whole–and had a light vanilla scent.

Tom Ford Les Mepris Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium coral with warm undertones and a very fine micro-shimmer. It had some shine, but it was less glossy than some of the other shades in the range. It had mostly opaque coverage, but the natural lip color comes through, so deeper and darker lips may alter the way this ends up looking on. It wore well for four hours, was moderately hydrating, and was comfortable to wear. Some of the color seemed to gather a little in lip lines when applied.

Tom Ford Pieno Sole Cream Cheek Color

Tom Ford Pieno Sole Cream Cheek Color
Tom Ford Pieno Sole Cream Cheek Color

Tom Ford Pieno Sole Cream Cheek Color ($68.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium, golden copper with warm undertones and a frosted shimmer paired with a natural sheen. Stila Bronze (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Jubilant (21) (P, $14.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $33.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Gold Deposit (P, $33.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Electric Slide (DC, $8.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NARS Jubilation (Right) (P) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced Snow Bunny (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Oh, Darling! (P, $33.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Jingle All the Way Bronzer (LE) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Cream Cheek Color formula is supposed to “instantly brighten” the face for a “healthy glow and a natural burst of color.” It had a thin, emollient texture that had a light tackiness to it overall, but it applied well to the skin and went on evenly. The cream blush (bronzer?) worked well over bare skin as well as was workable when patted over liquid foundation (I used Tarte’s Rainforest as my base), but that light tackiness made it easier to work with over bare skin. The formula is comparable to the one in Pink Sand (released last year, and it was also re-released in this year’s summer launch). It had semi-opaque to opaque coverage with a natural sheen and finer shimmer than you’d think, going off of the swatch, once applied. It lasted for seven hours on me before turning patchy.

Tom Ford The Afternooner Soleil Contouring Compact

Tom Ford The Afternooner Soleil Contouring Compact
Tom Ford The Afternooner Soleil Contouring Compact

Tom Ford The Afternooner Soleil Contouring Compact ($108.00 for 0.70 oz.) is a mega-sized compact that features three products: a highlighter, blush, and bronzer. It’s limited edition for summer and features the brand’s signature white packaging they often used for the summer collections. I was dismayed at the price point when pre-ordering, but it is massive; it is the size of their large-sized bronzing compacts, but the content weight is really the equivalent of three full-sized cheek colors. Though I’m not sure about ever hitting pan on something like this, the upside is that each shade is contained inside its own well and each well is large enough to use the shades individually. Small to medium brushes worked best; large brushes were too big for individual use. The brand states that the compact can be used individually or together for “sheer to medium coverage” and “both matte and radiant.” All three shades were smooth, while the blush and bronzer were a little firmer in the pan, fairly blendable, had medium coverage, and lasted for at least eight hours. The colors are more dupable, and the pigmentation is medium–which is as described–but may not be what you’re looking for.

The Afternooner (Highlighter) is a light, peachy-gold with warm undertones and a soft, golden shimmer-sheen finish. It read as a subtle highlighter on the skin; enough that it’s more than a finishing powder but was not overtly shimmery or metallic in the least bit. It had semi-sheer to mostly opaque coverage with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that was easy to apply and never emphasized pores. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me. Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (Sahara) (P, $44.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Flush (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Dior Luxurious Beige (LE, $82.00) is lighter (90% similar). NYX Narcissistic (P, $9.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Hourglass Surreal Strobe Light (LE, $38.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Solar Exposure (Highlighter) (LE, $60.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Exposed (P, $28.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Camelia de Chanel (LE, $70.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Hourglass Euphoric Strobe Light (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Dior #001 (P, $56.00) is darker (85% similar). Dior Cosmopolite (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Afternooner (Blush) is a slightly muted, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage, though it could be layered another time or two for nearly opaque coverage, I think. The texture was smooth and blendable, but it was a little firmer in the pan so you might want to use a denser brush to apply this shade unless you want a very sheer wash of color. It wore well for eight hours.
Urban Decay Streak Blush (-) is lighter (95% similar). KIKO 108 Orange Coral (P, $12.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Sideshow You (LE, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). NYX Apricot (P, $5.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Coco Code (LE, $70.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Mod (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Fleeting Romance (P, $23.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Warm (Winter 2016) Blush (LE, $60.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Pampered (LE, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). Dior Corail Bagatelle (763) (LE, $43.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Sweet Sweet Fantasy (LE, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). Chanel Angelique (190) (P, $45.00) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Ors et Merveilles #7 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Coral Flower (P, $49.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Viseart Ablaze (Blush) (P) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Vibrant (LE, $28.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Tarte Bashful (LE, $28.00) is lighter, more muted, cooler (90% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #2 (LE) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Autoerotique (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Coral Blush (LE) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Afternooner (Bronzer) is a subdued, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation with a smooth, blendable texture that was a little firm in the pan. I actually thought it was a contour powder (given that it’s a “Contouring Compact”), but Tom Ford’s website calls it out as a bronzer–but this is why in the swatch photo, I’m wearing it as a contour. There’s enough rosiness to the color that it could work as a contour for some skin tones. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. Marc Jacobs Beauty Tan-tastic (LE, $49.00) is cooler (95% similar). Cover FX Sunset (P, $38.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Gingerbread (LE) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Firebrush (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Nooner (Bronzer) (P) is cooler (90% similar). Viseart Sculpting #2 (P) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Sun-Kissed (P, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Bronzed (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Provocative (LE, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze (04) (P, $40.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Becca Bronzed Bondi (P, $38.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Tarte Unique (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Desert Nights (P, $48.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Sculpt (P) is cooler (85% similar).

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.
