Tom Ford SS17 Color Collection for Spring 2017

Tom Ford SS17 Color Collection
Tom Ford SS17 Color Collection

Tom Ford’s distinctive beauty point of view resonates from his ideal of balancing light and shadow to create symmetry. TOM FORD BEAUTY unveils a range of new products for
spring 2017 that illuminate, sculpt, and contour to help transform the look of the face. Shade and Illuminate—the essential tool for achieving Tom Ford’s philosophy of
face architecture—introduces two new ways to create balance and symmetry using complementing color contrasts.

February 2017, available for pre-order now

The Details

Shade & Illuminate Cheek, $80.00

Tom Ford introduces Shade and Illuminate Cheeks in two vibrant, yet sheer color palettes. This contour blush duo of highlighting and shading creams is integral to Tom Ford’s face philosophy. The easily blendable formula is designed to make dimensional color contrasting of the cheeks remarkably simple. The pearlescent highlighting shade brightens and draws light to skin, to amplify cheekbones and lift the face, while the sheer vibrant blush tone deepens and defines for the perfect flush or contour. Each color combination enhances a range of skin tones and can be applied with the Shade and Illuminate Brush and blended with the Cream Foundation Brush.

  • Scintillate Peach, copper
  • Sublimate Dusty rose, plum

Shade & Illuminate Lip, $60.00 (Limited Edition)

Shade and Illuminate Lips premieres in six limited-edition shade pairings designed to flatter a range of skin tones. Two shades, one light and one dark, create a subtle to dramatic ombré effect, shaping lips with high pigmentation and revolutionary adherence. The formula, with a velvety matte finish, features emollient oils and a blend of polymers that create rich color and deep dimension. Shades span from nude, mauve, and pink, to red and burgundy, and may be easily applied using the provided dual-ended applicator, featuring a sponge and a lip brush.

  • Saboteur Berry, plum
  • Impulse Rose, plum
  • Automatic Beige, brown
  • Tantalize Coral, deep coral
  • Possession Pink, deep pink
  • Nikita Red, burgundy

AW '16

Tom Ford AW ’16 Eyeshadow Duo ($60.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a neutral duo with a beige and brown, both shimmery shades, housed in small compact. The formula can be used both wet and dry (it is similar to the formula used in Nude Dip, and the colors are reminiscent of the same quad as well, but the texture of these is firmer and a little thinner overall). Both shades were nice, but dupable so I’d say that if they’re shades you don’t have and want, you’d be better off buying a quad, which will run you $82 but contains over double (0.35 oz.) the product.

Lust for Life

Tom Ford Lust for Life Shimmer Shot ($45.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and fine, golden pearl. It’s supposed to be a sheerer, liquid highlighter that can be used alone on the high points of the face or mixed in with liquid foundation. Most liquid highlighters tend to be on the sheerer side, like this one, which was semi-sheer, moderately buildable, but the thinner, more water-like texture made it very easy to sheer out further and spread across a large area of skin with minimal color impact and subdued, fine pearl.

The consistency was thicker than pure water, but it never felt heavy on the skin. When I patted it onto cheeks with my fingertip, I saw some color–mostly warmth–and a natural sheen that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The product never fully dried down but wasn’t tacky and did not seem to migrate too much (it wore nicely for about seven hours)–I looked dewy without looking oily. I felt like there was more shimmer to it than some of the sheerer liquid highlighters on the market (Giorgio Armani, Becca) but was still a finer size so that it didn’t look like big chunks of sparkle on the skin. It incorporated well with liquid foundations, though the effect was even more subtle that way (I couldn’t even capture it on camera, but it gave my foundations a slightly dewier finish).

Warm (02)

Tom Ford Warm (02) Winter Soleil Eye & Cheek Palette ($155.00 for 0.45 oz.) is one of two limited edition, holiday palettes from the brand, and it is the “warmer” of the two. The packaging is the signature white of the Soleil collections, and it comes with a large, interior mirror; it felt substantial to hold and clicked together nicely.

The eyeshadow colors applied well, lasted eight hours, and were easy to work with. The eyeshadows and cheek colors coordinated well together, so I could see the palette being worn on its own for sure. The cheek colors were high-quality, pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing, though the more satin-like shade did not feel dense or as buttery as the more shimmery shade (not really unexpected, as that’s how it usually works out between textures). While pricey, it performed well, and you’d think that would be the norm for luxury products, but it isn’t, so I’m glad it did. I think that both the eyeshadow and blush formulas were comparable to their permanent formulas (though the eyeshadows are not the kind found in Nude Dip or Honeymoon, rather the brand’s other quads).

I wish the brand broke out how much eyeshadow/cheek color was in the palette (oh, and names), because then I could give you a more accurate assessment of total value. Typically, the Eye Color Quads retail for $82.00 and contain 0.35 oz., while the Cheek Colors retail for $60.00 and contain 0.28 oz. Based on that, even if you were getting a full-sized quad and two, half-sized blushes, it would only come to $142, and we know it is less than that, given the total weight is 0.45 oz. of the palette and a full-sized quad and two half-sized blushes would come to 0.63 oz. If you’re someone who likes using all-in-one palettes or would easily reach for and use it as a cohesive palette, it might still have more subjective value to you, but otherwise, you would be better off choosing a full-sized, permanent quad and one full-sized blush (or even the Skin Illuminating Powder Duo), as you’d get more for your money and have the ability to choose the coordinating shades.

Tom Ford Cool (01) Winter Soleil Eye & Cheek Palette ($155.00 for 0.45 oz.) is one of two limited edition, holiday palettes from the brand, and it is the “cooler” of the two, though some shades are still warm-toned overall. The packaging is the signature white of the Soleil collections, and it comes with a large, interior mirror; it felt substantial to hold and clicked together nicely.

The cheek colors were high-quality, pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing, though the more matte shade did not feel dense or as buttery as the more shimmery shade (not really unexpected, as that’s how it usually works out between textures).

Crème Conque (04)

Tom Ford Crème Conque (04) Soleil Lip Foil ($53.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with warm undertones and multi-colored, almost rainbow-like pearl. I think this is going to look a bit different from person to person due to the coverage level (medium, somewhat buildable), so the natural lip color came through and influenced the end result quite a bit.

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 lipstick felt smooth, lightweight, and thin against the lips, but it didn’t drag during application and didn’t feel clingy during wear. It lasted for just over four hours and was lightly hydrating.
