Tom Ford Velvet Bloom Nightbloom Powder

Tom Ford Velvet Bloom Nightbloom Powder
Tom Ford Velvet Bloom Nightbloom Powder

Tom Ford Velvet Bloom Nightbloom Powder ($80.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light-medium pink with cool, blue undertones and satin finish paired with a dusting of pale pink sparkle. NARS Robotic (LE, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $26.00) is cooler, brighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay X-Rated (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #3 (LE) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Cherry (LE, $26.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Urban Decay Quickie (P, $26.00) is cooler, brighter, darker (85% similar). Surratt Beauty Guimauve (P, $32.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Gaiety (P, $30.00) is cooler, brighter, lighter (85% similar). MAC Peony Petal (P, $22.00) is brighter, darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

This is one of two limited edition powders being released for fall (I don’t have the other one, but I’ll certainly try to buy one when they officially release). The formula is supposed to be a “powder blush” that has “sumptuous color” that goes on “evenly.” It comes in purple-hued compact to match the Velvet Orchid fragrance family. While the packaging for the solid perfumes is extremely heavy and substantial, the compact for the blush is very lightweight and has that feeling of cheapness to me. The texture was soft, fairly smooth, and blendable on the skin; it doesn’t feel as dense or as buttery as the brand’s blushes or as blendable as the formula of the Illuminating Duo, and it is most like the bronzer formula.. It had medium, buildable coverage and produced a glowing finish once blended out on my skin, but if you don’t like seeing bits of shimmer or sparkle, you might not be in love with this. On me, the blush wore well for nine hours before fading slightly.

Tom Ford Black Orchid & Velvet Orchid Lip Colors

Tom Ford Black Orchid Lip Color
Tom Ford Black Orchid Lip Color

Tom Ford Black Orchid Lip Color ($60.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark red-burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and fine ruby red pearl. It had semi-opaque coverage that went on fairly evenly, but the darker color pulled into lip lines and looked almost blackened in the lines as a result. The consistency had more slip than most of Tom Ford’s lip colors, which gave it a soft sheen, but it also made it move around more, so it might be more prone to feathering for some (it didn’t for me, but that’s not something that happens to me often!). The color lasted for five hours and left a slight stain behind, while the formula was very lightly moisturizing. MAC Media (P, $17.00) is less glossy, less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Shame (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Inigo (P, $35.00) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Dahlia (P, $18.00) is cooler, more muted, darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Brazen (P, $32.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Ingrid (P, $32.00) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). Bite Beauty Liquorice (P, $26.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). MAC Runner (LE, $17.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). MAC Power Driven (LE, $17.00) is less glossy, cooler, darker (90% similar). MAC Lingering Kiss (LE, $17.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Maybelline Midnight Merlot (P, $7.49) is cooler, darker (90% similar). MAC Jasper (LE, $17.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Smoking Red (P, $7.49) is less glossy, warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). Bite Beauty Black Cherry (LE, $24.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Tarte Frenemy (P, $20.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Prim (P, $6.00) is less glossy, warmer, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Shame (DC, $22.00) is warmer, brighter, lighter (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blow (210) (P, $30.00) is lighter (80% similar). MAC Living Legend (LE, $17.00) is less glossy, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Velvet Orchid Lip Color ($60.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, muted rosy plum with warm undertones and iridescent shimmer–a mix of teal, pink, and violet. It had good pigmentation, though not fully opaque, that applied easily with a lightly creamy consistency. The color wore well for five hours on me and was hydrating while worn. Tom Ford Beauty Elliot (P, $35.00) is glossier, cooler, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Seadragon (06) (LE, $53.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Heavy Petting (LE, $17.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Otranto (LE, $55.00) is cooler, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Sweet Succulence (LE, $17.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). NYX Power (P, $6.00) is brighter, lighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Daniel (DC, $35.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Viva Glam VI (P, $17.00) is lighter (80% similar). MAC Craving (P, $17.00) is cooler, brighter, lighter (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Drake (P, $35.00) is cooler, lighter (80% similar). Laura Mercier Tutti Frutti (P, $25.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Both shades are limited edition as far as I can tell (the press release refers to everything in the Orchid collection as limited), but they should be available at all retailers sooner rather than later. Black Orchid was released previously but was discontinued (I don’t think I have it from the initial launch to compare).

P.S. — As mine are press samples, they didn’t have retail boxes and, unfortunately, while traveling 3,000 miles, the caps came off, so the lipsticks were dinged up a bit! (That is not how Tom Ford ships when a customer orders!)

Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo

Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo
Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo

Tom Ford Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo ($78.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, limited edition blush duo for summer that uses a wet/dry formula. According to the brand, the blush “can be applied wet for a soft veil of color” or “dry for a sweeping pop of vibrancy.” Both shades were fairly pigmented applied dry, but both intensified and were much more opaque when applied damp. They were less blendable when applied with a damp brush (the darker shade was less forgiving). The wear dry was eight to eight and a half hours, and the wear damp was eight and a half hours (for both shades). Forgetting that it’s supposed to be sheer when applied damp, it’s a nice blush duo, and I think that for those who don’t want to bother with damp application, the dry application is actually where the blushes shine best.

Bicoastal (Top) is a light-medium pink with a hint of warm, peach and a frosted sheen. Applied dry, it was mostly opaque with a very frosted sheen that was just shy of emphasizing pores. Applied damp, it was fully opaque (not a “soft veil of color”) with a smoother sheen–it was actually less noticeably shimmery/luminous when applied damp. On me, it wore well for eight hours dry, eight and a half hours damp. The texture was soft, lightly firm in the pan but not stiff, and blendable overall, but it was easiest to blend out when used dry. NARS Adoration (Left) (P) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Blonde (LE, $32.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). MAC Beaming Blush (P, $30.00) is cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cool (Winter 2016) Highlighter (LE, $60.00) is more muted, darker (85% similar). Makeup Revolution Make Love Instead (P, $5.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). NARS Fervor (Left) (P) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). Tarte Prim (LE, $28.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). MAC Rio (LE, $32.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). Giorgio Armani Eccentrico (LE, $88.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bicoastal (Bottom) is a medium-dark, raspberry pink with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. Applied dry, it had good pigmentation (but it appeared faded in overall appearance compared to damp application) with a soft, smooth consistency that was easily blended on the skin and wore for eight and a half hours. Applied damp, it was less shimmery and appeared warmer in tone, while the color lasted for nine and a half hours; it wasn’t as blendable when applied with a damp brush (I would use fingers to blend out). Chanel Rose Tourbillon (67) (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Adoration (Right) (P) is brighter (90% similar). Becca Foxglove (P, $34.00) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Rosewood (350) (P, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Red Water Lily (LE, $40.00) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). Black Opal Nectar (P, $8.95) is warmer (90% similar). Clinique Rosy Pop (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Night Fever & Hot Stuff (508) (P, $42.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). theBalm Houndstooth (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Thames (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Clinique Heather Pop (P, $21.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Love is the Drug (P, $40.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Flush (P, $60.00) is brighter, lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Your Love is King (P, $26.00) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar). Stila Pink Rose Blush (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Love Sick (22) (P, $14.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Blush (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Benefit Bella Bamba (DC, $28.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Tarte Fetching (LE, $28.00) is warmer, less shimmery (85% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #1 (LE) is cooler, brighter (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Purple Noon Ultra-Rich Lip Color
Tom Ford Purple Noon Ultra-Rich Lip Color

Tom Ford Otranto Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with cool undertones and fine, light gold and rose shimmer. It had mostly opaque coverage with a lightweight texture that wasn’t as emollient as other shades in the range. It lasted for longer–four hours–and seemed to stay in place better. MAC Where No Man Has Gone Before (LE, $17.00) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Drake (P, $35.00) is less glossy, darker (90% similar). Chanel Noir Moderne (128) (P, $37.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). Guerlain Rose Bengale (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Tom Ford Scandola Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-beige with warm undertones and gold shimmer. It had sheer coverage, which seemed to lighten and add warmth to my lips without adding a lot of noticeable peach color. It applied somewhat evenly, but the lighter color emphasized all the lip lines as the product tended to settle into the lines. The color wore for two hours on me. MAC Pressed and Ready (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Charmeuse (142) (LE, $37.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Zenith (LE, $30.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar).

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

Tom Ford Purple Noon Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark berry plum with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy shine. It had semi-opaque coverage with a lightweight, moderately slippery texture that glided on easily but the thinner consistency made sure it didn’t slide around too readily. The color stayed on for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Hourglass Liberator (P, $32.00) is warmer, lighter (95% similar). Estee Lauder Sly Ingenue (430) (P, $32.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Bite Beauty Aubergine (P, $24.00) is warmer, less shimmery (90% similar).
