1. The limited edition collections…
Whenever one of Tom’s limited edition color collections drops, I’m reminded of my recurring need for a dedicated makeup fainting couch (Note to self: invent that).
Like this morning, when I laid eyes on the new spring 2015 collection in all its purple, teal and blue glory.
The duos, the nail polishes and that cray-cray mascara? BANANAS.
It’s $55, and yes, that’s crazy expensive, but Tom’s Eye Defining Pen in Deeper is also outrageously good.
When that mysterious billionaire benefactor I’ve been waiting for since my freshman year eventually knocks on my door and says, “Karen! Let me fund your beauty-loving lifestyle!” I’m going to stockpile hundreds of these pens and keep them in a special climate-controlled underground makeup lair.
It’s so good I want to cry. 🙁 I have literally — LITERALLY — worn several of these down to the nub.
African Violet is THE purple polish I wear whenever I need to bring my A game. It’s like my comic book super serum, and it looks magnificent on toes (especially when they’re submerged in a five-star resort’s swimming pool).
Otherwise known as “Warm Coppery Bronze Shangri-la…”
I love this pic of Sable because it was taken when my quad was fresh and new, le sigh…
Now it looks busted, like a much-loved teddy bear. 🙂
Whenever my neurons aren’t firing well and I can’t string two sentences together, I pull out Cognac Sable.
Tom Ford plays fragrance notes like a concert pianist. If you like scents that go far beyond simply sweet fruity florals, do your nose a favor and take it to a Tom Ford counter.
7. The unabashedly sexy and fabulous makeup looks…
Sometimes the fearless, brazen looks in the brand’s advertising make me want to don a silk jumpsuit, platform heels, smokey eyes, glazed cherry lips and drive to the post office on a Thursday afternoon.
Why? I have no idea. Just because.
It took me a while to fully appreciate these Cream Colors, but now I’m utterly committed. Great for glossy lids, these lightweight mousse cream eyeshadows last so freaking long it’s ridiculous, and they can also be used as bases for powder eyeshadows.
Whenever new limited edition colors appear, don’t hesitate to grab one.
Wunderbar. They’re so wonderful I had to say it in German.
This one here, Escape, is my favorite.
9. Sable Smoke
OK, it’s not the most dazzling Tom Ford lip color, but it’s the one I wear most. Sable Smoke is one of the smoothest, easiest nude lipsticks I’ve ever used, and my tube is almost always within a few feet of me.
Unabashed was a limited edition release last year, and it still makes my heart do weird things.
THAT BLUE THO!
