Yeah, this foundation is $80. It’s Tom Ford, so it comes with 10,000 volts of taser-like TF sticker shock.
Traceless Perfecting Foundation is a new addition to Tom’s permanent line, liquid foundation formula, available in 15 shades for $80, and that gets you a 1-ounce bottle.
The medium-coverage formula has a super subtle sheen and a velvety finish, so skin looks natural, real and not flat, and you can sheer it out even more to enhance that.
The formula doesn’t do much by way of controlling oil, so if you have oily skin, it may not help you out there, but for normal or dry skin, this would be a good, lightweight, natural-looking foundation for everyday wear.
With a fairly painful price.
To be honest, the coverage doesn’t dazzle me in pics, where I like my coverage closer to full and opaque, and my pores are totally unafraid of this stuff. I wish it blurred them into the background a bit better, but that’s me. If you already have perfect skin, you’ll be fine, but homegirl needs more help. Seriously, it takes a village.
I’m normally an NC42 in MAC, but that varies a little depending on my tan. I’ve been wearing the shade called Caramel, but I think it’s a little dark for me now that I’m starting to lose my tan, so I mix it with NARS Sheer Glow in Stromboli to lighten it up a little.
That works, but is it worth the effort? For $80, I don’t know. Survey says…probably not.
This is truly a medium-coverage foundation — great for undeniably gorgeous, natural-looking skin — if you don’t need more coverage.
PRICE: $80 (GREAT CAESAR’S GHOST EGAD!)
