Cool (01)

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 eyeshadow colors applied well, lasted seven to eight hours, and despite having two glittery shades, had minimal fall out over time. 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). 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.

Arigato

ColourPop Arigato Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and gold, silver, and fuchsia sparkle. It has a Sheer finish, which is apt, as the coverage was sheer. It darkened and added pink to my natural lip color, but it may look quite different depending on what your natural lip color is. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and non-sticky on the lips, which made it comfortable to wear for the three and a half hours it lasted for.

Date Mate

ColourPop Date Mate Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0352 oz.) is a deep fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a flat, matte finish. The consistency was much drier and firmer than the majority of Lippie Stix I’ve come across, which made it tug and pull at the lips when I attempted to apply it. I was quite surprised that it applied as evenly as it did, as stiffer formulations usually end up looking streaky, thick, and uneven. The formula was clingy, which made it feel drier on, though it did not start to feel drying until three hours into wear (of total of six hours of wear).

Tiny Chum

ColourPop Tiny Chum Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium rosy pink with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a very creamy, light-medium thick consistency that spread evenly across the lips but seemed more prone to sinking into lip lines compared to other shades in this formula. I don’t think it was too noticeable from a normal viewing distance, but it was an area where it could have been better. The color wore well for seven hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

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.

ColourPop Bijou Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark purple with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had great pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and easily as the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin and spread across the lips nicely. I did notice that there was a bit of color that settled into my deeper lip line, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. This shade lasted for eight hours and was just a touch drying after six hours of wear.
