Brand new TF cream shadows! 🙂
Just kidding. They aren’t cream shadows…but they look like they are, don’t they?
I can’t be the only person out there who thought that these new Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Lip Duos were actually cream shadows. In fact, I may or may not have tried one of them on my lids (FYI, I don’t recommend doing this, although, off the record, it was kind of fun!).
Are these cream shadows or what??
Tom’s new Shade and Illuminate Lip Duos look like eyeshadow duos, cost about as much as his eye products (they’re $60 each), and they even come with little sponge applicators.
Thing is, they aren’t for ‘ze 😍 eyes… No, these are for ‘ze 👄 lips!
Tom ford whipped up a new formula called “powder gelee,” which I think might be fancy talk for a cream-to-powder lip formula, for these swanky six, all of which are new for spring 2017.
Tom Ford’s powder-gelee formula features emollient oils and a blend of polymers that provide rich color release and adherence.
These duos go on creamy but dry to a velvety matte finish. I think they look a lot like the Chanel Velvets, but they feel lighter than Chanel’s do to me, which I wouldn’t have guessed possible, because the Chanel Velvets feel sooo barely-there noticeable.
If you don’t like to feel like you’re wearing lipstick when you are, I think you’ll like how these feel.
Next-level highlighting and contouring
Tom Ford is BIG into contouring, with darker colors to sculpt and create angles, and lighter colors to accentuate and draw the eye to the high points of the face. It’s a structured, architectural makeup aesthetic, and it’s the kind of aesthetic these duos are designed to bring to lips.
