Winter 2018

Tom Ford Beauty Winter 2018 Soleil Eye & Cheek Palette ($155.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette featuring four eyeshadows, one blush, and one highlighter. I find that these palettes are very hit or miss and tend to lack consistency within each respective release. I had higher hopes for this season’s iteration as the formula used throughout is more of the gel-powder variety. The eyeshadows were so-so, while the cheek products were much nicer.

Rougir

Tom Ford Beauty Rougir Lumiere Lip ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a translucent pink that looked like a barely-tint of pink that gave my lips a soft sheen. I find this type of product harder to review, as they look similar across the shades and, to some degree, depend on one’s natural lip color, but it doesn’t seem like the type of product where the shade itself matters much. The texture was lightweight, balm-like but not too slippery, and comfortable to wear, but it the comfort and hydration lasted less than two hours and never felt like it nourished over the long term–like it only felt hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$55.00/0.10 oz. - $550.00 Per Ounce

The formula is described as "translucent" and is a "lip balm [that] reacts to the wearer's pH" so that it has a "personalized wash of color." In my experience, a lot of products that are supposed to react to the pH all end up pretty similar when applied and are very subtle in difference, if at all, when applied to my lips. They live up to the translucent part of the spiel, but they have really short wear time--an hour or two before it feels gone--and not that much hydration. I actually really love Tom Ford's Lip Balm (in a squeeze tube), but these just fell short for me. They had a very subtle vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Photosynthesex

Tom Ford Beauty Photosynthesex Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, permanent set of shades featuring a shimmery gold, shifting teal, muted plum, and matte teal. The color concept is very cool and interesting to see, particularly for a permanent product. I highly recommend giving the color combo a try with shades you may already own. The quality of the quad was a little too up and down for me, and at this price point, I would expect more consistency in quality.

Tom Ford Boys & Girls Lip Colors ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) have been reviewed! Hurrah! It’s over until the next round o’ Boys & Girls that Tom Ford has around the corner, I’m sure.  I actually think it might be time for a new theme or perhaps a curation of all of the past iterations into a core range of shades.  There were certainly some winners and a few misses across the new shades released this holiday season.  I enjoyed Chadwick, Scott, Kendrick, Jordan, and Jordan the most.

I was most jazzed about Cardi, but it was part of the Lip Color Sheer formula, so it was a let-down since it applied so poorly, and ultimately, the sheer formula doesn’t work as well with this type of shade unless it goes on exceptionally evenly.  Plus, if it’s going to be inspired by Cardi B., it feels like it should have a whole lot more pizzazz, like a sparkly, opaque violet-blue would have been a great fit–you know, Tom Ford’s take on Technopagan (by OCC, one of the world’s great discontinued shades).

Did you pick any of the new Boys & Girls up this season? Do you normally?

Liquid Sun

Tom Ford Beauty Liquid Sun Soleil Glow Drops ($50.00 for 0.47 oz.) is a translucent base with fine white and silver pearl. Against my skin tone, the fine pearl catches the light so well that it almost looked like micro-glitter yet I couldn’t see individual particles so much as a sheen and a glimmer as the light reflected off of my skin. I did, occasionally, see almost pink pearl, though I’m not certain that it wasn’t just a trick of the light. The liquid highlighter had a thin, water-gel like texture–more water-like than a thicker, gel, but it had enough substance to it that it spread easily across my skin evenly and with good dispersion. It dried down and set to a more powder-like finish within 30 seconds of blending and spreading the product out on my cheek bones.

The liquid highlighter applied well to bare skin and gently patted on top of liquid foundation with fingertips or with a duo-fiber cheek brush. I preferred using a brush with this particular formula as it seemed to spread and blend out well but was more foolproof to avoid accidentally lifting up my foundation. It yielded a noticeable sheen to my skin with slight pearlescent; it was a light-to-moderate highlighter, so if you tend to find liquid highlighters too subtle, this might work for you but if you’re often looking for the most barely-there pearl, this will likely be too shimmery. When I mixed it in with foundation, it added all-over luminosity but medium coverage foundation kept it from veering into territory where I could actually see pearl all-over. On its own, the product stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$50.00/0.47 oz. - $106.38 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "translucent" and to give a "soft-focused, diffused glow" whether mixed in with foundation or applied to the high points of the face. It has a watery, slightly gel-like consistency that's thinner but easily spread with a quick dry down that sets in place, so it doesn't break down too easily. It was easier to use with a brush when applying it over a base for spot highlighting, whereas fingertips worked well when it was used over bare skin or when mixed with a foundation or moisturizer. The shimmer was fine but not so subtle that the effect got lost, particularly when used alone or with more medium-coverage products. The formula stayed on well for eight to nine hours on me. I didn't notice any scent while wet or dry.

Aurora

Tom Ford Beauty Aurora Lumiere Lip ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, translucent base that seemed to have a subtle, lavender tint. On my lips, the tint translated to a deepening of my natural lip color and made it appear more mauve/cooler compared to normal. The consistency was lightweight, balmy, and emollient with moderate slip, so it was comfortable to apply and to wear. The product only seemed to stay on my lips for an hour and a half to two hours, and I didn’t feel sustained hydration over time.

Formula Overview

$55.00/0.10 oz. - $550.00 Per Ounce

The formula is described as "translucent" and is a "lip balm [that] reacts to the wearer's pH" so that it has a "personalized wash of color." In my experience, a lot of products that are supposed to react to the pH all end up pretty similar when applied and are very subtle in difference, if at all, when applied to my lips.

I actually really love Tom Ford's Lip Balm (in a squeeze tube), but these just fell short for me. They had a very subtle vanilla scent but no discernible taste.
