Holy crap, Tom Ford! Wherever you’ve been spending your summers, to borrow a line from Liz Lemon, “I want to go to there.”
I can see you lounging by an infinity pool in the late afternoon, watching leggy ladies in Burberry bikinis test the water as beams of peachy, pinkish gold glisten on bronzed skin…
You take a sip from your daiquiri (complete with pink umbrella, of course) and make a mental note of every detail, which you promptly add to your summer collection. “Luxe, luminous, sunlit and sensuous,” you muse. “The ladies will love it.”
High five, Tom! Bulls eye.
Like two weeks on Kauai spent alternately napping and swimming, the new nine-piece Tom Ford Beauty summer 2013 collection is the stuff of my dreams, and maybe also yours, if you like traditional summer makeup looks.
Picture peach, pink, gold and bronze dancing across your skin; opalescent, soft shimmers; and radiant, dewy finishes that contrast wonderfully with sun-dappled bronzed mattes.
Good grief! — I just had to fan myself for a second, Blanche Devereaux-style…
The new $40 Tom Ford Beauty Escapade Cream Color for Eyes is expensive, but oh, so flattering. And it isn’t fussy at all. The peachy, pinkish golden tones feel very of-the-moment to me, like rose gold jewelry (which I’m currently obsessed with), but for your face. I think the entire launch is gorgeous, especially on a tan.
I pat and blend a small amount of the lightweight mousse on bare lids (hardly have to use any, and I can even skip primer!), followed by several layers of mascara. After that, my lids just glow. I look like a girl who’s biggest care in the world is choosing between the beach or the pool.
And as a bonus, it also works great as a base for powder eye shadows. I wear it with tan, gold, peach, pink, bronze, coral, or even teal and purple. As pricey as it is, Tom, ya done good.
