Tom Ford Preview: Colour Collection Continued...
I was eager to see how Tom Ford would do face: one of the things you do observe about this line is that while there’s lots to look at – and certainly enough choice – there’s not a bewildering amount of ‘stuff’. To begin, he’s just done one mascara, for example, six blushers in one texture and a solo gel eyeliner.
The face routine’s not a lot more complex either, with 10 (or possibly 11) shades of Traceless Foundation SPF15, which is the liquid offering, and a stick version, which is super-creamy and might appeal to a more mature customer or to someone who likes that bit of extra coverage. It comes in ten shades and both myself and Aisling were impressed at how emollient it was – Max Factor Panstick this ain’t.
There’ll be Translucent Finishing Powders on offer, in four shades.
And this interesting-looking little feller, top: it’s Shade and Illuminate, €65. A duo product, one end contains a cream shader (the darker end) which you use to contour cheekbones, nose, temples and chin, while the white end is designed for use as a highlighter. This will come in two shade offerings.
For face, we’ll also be seeing an Illuminating Highlight Pen in eight tones and an Illuminating Powder.
Lastly – of course he’s done brushes. These are beautiful, super-soft, fine, natural hair tools that feel gorgeous on the skin. What’s on offer here? Eyeshadow, eyeshadow blend, eyeshadow contour, smokey eye, eyeliner and definer, shadow and concealer, foundation, cream foundation, cheek, shade and illuminate, bronzer and lip.
Check back tomorrow because I’ll have some swatches! Yes – I will indeed. I’ve had a play with a palette, blusher, eyebrow definer and foundation and have the shots prepped and ready to go for your viewing edification.
In the meantime, let us know in a comment what you think of the forthcoming Tom Ford Beauty Colour Collection, and given €500 to spend guilt free and free gratis, what would you buy?
*Might be exaggerating slightly; it might also be that we went to the wrong one initially and had to be found and brought in the right entrance.
