Then and Now

Too Faced Then and Now Cheers to 20 Years Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.80 oz.) is exactly what I’d expect from the brand to celebrate their 20th anniversary. From the types of colors to the finishes to the color scheme and to the packaging, it’s so on-brand that it really seemed fitting for this particular milestone. I thought the concept was interesting–taking their original 10 eyeshadows and then updating them–but what I’ll say about that is I think I’d rather have seen them update the original shades (better formulations, slight tweaks for a modern interpretation) and then pairing them with 10 shades worked with them. Instead, the palette offers a distorted mirror image of the original 10, and I felt like it made the palette a little less cohesive than it should be for having 22 shades (I was definitely longing for some more satin/matte, deeper shades).

Overall, the quality was better than expected; better than the average for Too Faced and their limited edition palettes compared to the last few years (though I’ve seen some improvement over the last year here). There are several glittery shades, which suffer from your typical glitter eyeshadow problems, like glitter not binding with the base, fallout (during and after application), and so on. If you’re someone who often users fingertips or dampened brushes (or a glitter adhesive), I suspect you’ll be just fine working with this palette. Also, the palette is rather over-sized, so keep that in mind for organization and traveling purposes, but it certainly contains a ton of product for your money.

Tom Ford Fougere d’Argent Eau de Parfum ($235.00 for 1.7 fl. oz.) opened with as a fizzy and spicy mix with the mandarin and ginger notes being most prominent to my nose; it was a bit sharp to me initially but within a few minutes, it was much smoother. The lavender’s presence was more noticeable when I took in the scent as a whole, whereas I was able to pick out the mandarin and spiciness in the ginger when I tried. In the initial hour or so of wear, it was a warm and spicy with subtle sweetness and light mandarin playing with the ginger and a whisper of woods.

As the fragrance wore on, the cistus note comes through along with the akigalawood, and it smells more like a subtly spiced, woody fragrance with a resinous quality and slight sweetness. It was definitely a drier scent that I’d describe as robust but not as much as a punch in the face as some of the other Tom Ford Private Blends can be–this just seems to be smoother and particularly well-blended. The fragrance is designed to be unisex, but if I had to describe it as one or the other, it seemed more like more masculine scents on the market.

A lot of my favorite Tom Ford Private Blends are quite potent, and I’d describe this one as moderate-to-heavy–it had noticeable projection for the first hour, and then sat closer to the skin but took about 12 hours before it came a true skin scent on me (but worth noting, I very rarely have problems with fragrance longevity). My favorite Tom Ford scents include Amber Absolute (discontinued), Bois Marocain, Lavender Palm (discontinued), Neroli Portofino, Oud Wood, Plum Japonais, and Tobacco Vanille.

I have several of the more recently released fragrances by Tom Ford (tested but not reviewed), but this is one that had me sitting up from the first spritz. It is totally in my wheelhouse, but I love that it’s not as heavy hitting as Amber Absolute but not so shy that it doesn’t deserve the Private Blend label. It’s a new favorite for me, and I love smelling it on myself as well as my husband!

Universal Appeal

Tom Ford Beauty Universal Appeal Lip Lacquer Liquid Matte ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium-dark, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which was easy to apply in a smooth, fluid stroke for even coverage. The consistency was lightweight, thin without being watery, but it dried down to a very clingy, “tight” feeling liquid lipstick that was physically uncomfortable to wear for me. It wore well for eight hours but was moderately drying over time.

Formula Overview

$54.00/0.09 oz. - $600.00 Per Ounce

The matte formula is supposed to be "feather-light" with "concentrated color" that is a "fade-resistant, full-coverage velvet matte." It is supposed to "smoothing moisturizers" in it, though I'd say the matte version of the Lip Lacquers isn't very moisturizing in any way. The formula was quite pigmented, certainly "feather-light," and very long-wearing, but they clung noticeably to lips and made my lips feel tight throughout wear, which made it an uncomfortable formula to wear. The dry down took 15-30 seconds on my lips (but took forever on my arm!) and typically dried down to a fairly smooth finish and didn't seem prone to "cracking" or separating around my lip lines. They lasted over eight hours but were drying on me.

Fetishist

Tom Ford Beauty Fetishist Lip Lacquer Liquid Matte ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer. The liquid lipstick had a smooth, lightweight, and thin consistency that wasn’t watery, so it applied evenly and had a fair amount of coverage. The dry down didn’t take too long, and it didn’t seem prone to emphasizing my lip lines (but didn’t smooth them out either–occasionally matte, liquid lipsticks can do this), but after it had dried down, it was noticeably tight and clingy on my lips. It was uncomfortable to wear, though it certainly lasted a very long time–it was still going strong after eight hours–but left my lips feeling dry after six hours of wear.

Rouge Metal

Tom Ford Beauty Rouge Metal Lip Lacquer Liquid Metal ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and flecks of gold and copper sparkle and finer shimmer. The pigmentation was nearly opaque and applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without streaking. It had a lightweight, smooth, and comfortable consistency that was easy to wear, but it was somewhat tacky, which may be a deal-breaker for some. This shade stayed on well for six hours and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$54.00/0.09 oz. - $600.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "liquid-gel" that optically "plumps" the lips due to the "mirror-like" finish. It is supposed to be "long-wearing" with "stay-true color" that is hydrating. They are fairly pigmented with most shades being opaque in one layer. The texture was smooth, light-medium in thickness but felt lightweight, and had moderate tackiness, though I'd say less tackiness than most other formulas I've tried that are similar (other opaque, metallic glosses). The wear ranged from five to six hours, and my lips felt hydrating during and after wear. They had a soft, sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.
