Today’s pictorial post is designed to give you a requisite dose of Vitamin D. Replete with lush corals and sultry greens, the exquisite *Tom Ford Soleil Collection 2018will have you yearning for the warmer months more than you already do!
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the collection in action as well as the Bottom Line…
The opulent white and gold packaging is back yet again, ensuring vanities and handbags alike are bestowed with a sophistication unmatched in the beauty world. From radiant powders to luminous lips, you won’t want to miss these limited edition offerings.
For the face, there are two new compacts that build bronzing and blushing tradition we’ve come to associate with Tom Ford Soleil.
The *Tom Ford Soleil Contouring Compact in Nude Glow features a well-endowed compact rife with three shades of powder: soft and sparkling nude, creamy coral and iridescent pink. Because the nude shade is so muted, traditional contouring with it may only be a reality for extremely fair skin tones but it makes for a lovely beauty powder to accentuate one’s features in a subtle way. The coral blush is stunning…massive color payoff and little to no shimmer for a healthy and fresh-faced look and the pink highlighter gives the high points of the face a gentle glow that is endlessly pretty.
For cheeks that radiate with an alluring flush, embrace the beauty that is the *Tom Ford Sheer Cheek Duo in Exotica Flora. Finely milled with a satin finish, the coral pink and peachy papaya blushes make skin look lit-from-within, all the while imparting a rosy radiance that is sure to flatter a spectrum of skin tones.
Bronze. Blush. Highlight. TOM FORD’s luxurious expertly-designed face palette returns in Nude Glow, three new sensual summer shades in one ivory-and gold-colored TOM FORD Soleil compact.
Why It’s Special
Three shades of blush and highlighter add natural dimension and sensuous color in a cream-like powder formula that effortlessly glides onto skin with a soft, even finish. Mauve nude blush gives cheeks the perfect touch of color, the peach nude highlighter mimics the sun reflecting off the skin and the sultry dark nude enhances a healthy radiance.
How To Use
Use shades alone or together to contour a seductive, natural glow. Provides sheer to medium coverage, both matte and radiant.
For eyes, there are two breathtakingly eye-catching Tom Ford *Cream and Powder Eye Colorsin Emerald Isles (a rich green and pale gold combination) and Azure Sun (a turquoise blue and muted fawn pairing). I have long been a proponent of this genius dual formula (Golden Peach seems to make an appearance on Beauty Professor at least once a week) as the cream boasts crease-free performance and the coordinating powder’s luminosity is tastefully incandescent.
The newest shades are color drenched yet delightfully wearable, tempered by their coordinating powders, which take the vibrant cream shades from bold to smoldering in exactly one coat. Although I rarely wear shades in the green and blue family on my eyes, Emerald Isles and Azure Sunhave opened my mind to the possibilities, especially when combined with bronzed skin and nude lips (as demonstrated in the images at the end of this post.
This two-tiered eye color pairs two coveted formulas in one to create a lustrous and sexy summertime eye. The ultra-pigmented, metallic cream shadow glides onto lids with a rich, molten glow and the sparkling celestial powder intensifies the look with alluring shimmer.
The papaya-esque *Tom Ford Lumiere Lip is sure to be a summertime staple; its transparent gel texture and hydrating formula are fantastic but I am most intrigued by the tender, custom shade that develops upon application. Working with one’s pH, Lumiere Liptransforms into a very subtle coral for lips that look juicy and fresh…prepare to be addicted.
Naturally-enhanced lip color with hyaluronic acid for instantly plump luminosity, the universally-flattering balm reacts to the individual wearer’s PH, creating a customized color based on natural undertones.
Why It’s Special
The bright, translucent papaya shade transforms into a personalized tint of subtle color and worship-worthy glow. Featuring anti-oxidants and natural plant extracts that soften, moisturize and condition, lumière lip is the go-to lip for fresh, full and flushed lips.
How To Use
May be applied directly to the lips from the bullet or with a lip brush.
Tom Ford Lipstick in Bad Lieutenant (reviewed HERE): I’ve been reaching for this perfect mauve-toned nude frequently the last couple of weeks; it’s a slightly deeper nude that possesses just enough color to effortlessly define lips.
