Published in: Tom Ford Beauty

Tom Ford Summer 2015

I’m looking lovingly at the Tom Ford Summer 2015 Collection and thinking, SWOON! — first, because of the limited edition white and gold packaging (hello!), which looks almost like, I dunno, really expensive jewelry? — and second, TIDE PENS.

OK, I know that was kind of (very) random…but hey, that’s why we hang out. 🙂 You feel the randomness, I feel the randomness, we all feel the randomness to-geh-thurrrrr.

Anywho… Like I was saying: Tide Pens. I always carry one with me whenever I wear white because no matter how hard I try to keep whatever I’m wearing pristine and stain-free, I find a way to get makeup or a pen smudge or cat food all over it.

But I don’t have to worry about that with these beauties from Tom, because even if I do get a little Sheba Chicken and Liver on one of the compacts, they’re easy to clean. All you have to do is wipe.

Yeah…

I have no idea how this train of thought ended up at Cat Food Station, but I apologize for that. Let’s move on, shall we? We have new Tom Ford products to get to. 🙂

Tom Ford Summer 2015

The new Tom Ford 2015 Soleil/Summer Collection is available now online and at Tom Ford counters, and it’s a beauty inside and out. I had a full-on “OH, MY GAWD, BECKY!!” meltdown in my living room this afternoon, no kidding. El Hub looked at me like I’d lost my damned mind.

The 16-piece collection is freaking breathtaking from, like, every possible angle. Just looking at the pieces — from the shimmering Eye Colors, to the deliciously golden plummy Eye and Cheek Compact, to the luscious lipsticks and the toasty, sun-drenched bronzers — makes me feel like an eccentric billionaire (you know, the one who promises to fund the fabulous cat lady lifestyle I’m destined to lead, LOL!) is about to treat me to a Tahitian vacation at the Four Seasons, just so that I can sit by the pool. The release exudes summer, gold and rich, like you’re about to make it muthu-f*cking rain wearing just a white bikini, bronzer and five-inch spiked heels.

I mean…Tom Ford, though. He owns that sexy/luxurious makeup thing.

The Tom Ford Summer 2015 campaign imagery; I love this look!

Of course, the products are also expensive enough to trigger panic attacks. For instance, the Eye and Cheek Compact in Pink Glow is $95 (HOLY WOW!), the Cream and Powder Eye Colors are $60, and the Sheer Lipsticks are $50.

Can you feel your heart pounding in your chest? Are beads of sweat forming on your brow? Yeah, we have officially entered CRAZY EXPENSIVE MAKEUP TERRITORY, which is where Tom Ford apparently resides.

Wtih Tom Ford makeup, since it’s so, so expensive, I feel like for me to recommend something, it really has to be moving or exceptional in some way. Currently I’m still working my way through the collection, testing it for wear and whatnot, so right here what I’ve got mostly is just a a few initial thoughts of the eye, cheek and lip products, just to give you an idea of what to expect when you see it in person for yourself at the Tom Ford counter.

Tom Ford Summer 2015 Soleil Collection: Eyes

By far, I think the most interesting/exciting pieces in the release for me are the Cream and Powder Eye Colors ($60 each), the chunky circular things that have a cream shadow on the bottom of the jar and a shimmery powder at the top.

The idea is to layer the shadows and powders together, but you can also wear them separately, of course. There are four in the collection, and I believe I’ve seen each of the individual cream shadow colors in other Tom Ford products and releases before. The dark khaki/pewter in Midnight Sea looks like Spring 2015 (that was the color’s name; it was from last season), while the rose gold in Golden Peach resembles Pink Haze, and the warm bronze in Naked Bronze looks like Illicit.

I really do like Tom’s cream shadows… I think they’re some of the more interesting, usual cream shadows out there now. They have a glossy finish and an incredible wear time. I haven’t really seen anything quite like them before, and for me, they’re the main selling point of these combos.

As for the powder eyeshadows, they’re definitely sparkly, which is super cool (MOAR GLITTER!), and the glitter flecks themselves are medium-sized (like the glitter in Tom’s quads).

The collection also includes an Eye and Cheek Compact containing three eyeshadows (two shimmers and a glitter), one blush, and a highlighter called Pink Glow ($95) — a kind of unusual name, considering that the color appears more like a golden plum to me.

To test it out, I quickly put this one on half of my face the other day (does anybody else do this? LOL!). The plummy pink blush and rose gold highlighter have pigment for DAYS, and the eyeshadows play off the cheek colors beautifully.

I’m a little concerned about the plum shadow, though… I used my fingers to apply it on my lids, and after running my finger back and forth across the pan a few times, the eyeshadow developed a hardened layer on top. I don’t think it’s going to be a problem, but I’ll let you know as I continue using it.

Tom Ford Summer 2015 Soleil Collection: Cheeks

What kind of Tom Ford summer collection would it be without bronzers, am I right? There’s two shades in the collection, Gold Dust, a shimmery golden warm tan, and Terra, a matte neutral brown with a slight taupe undertone, and they come in a two sizes: a large 0.75-oz pan (bigger than my hand!) for $95 and a smaller 0.29-oz travel size (about the size of my palm) for $77.

I’m kind of a bronzing fiend and got a little flushed when I saw these. They’re beautiful on the cheeks and have a LOT of potential. Terra could also easily double as a matte transition shade, too.

Along with the bronzers is a cream blush, Pink Sand, a bronzed pink with golden shimmer. This surprised me… In a good way! I popped this on the apples of my cheeks and was happy to see that my pores weren’t waving from a mile away.

Tom Ford Summer 2015 Soleil Collection: Lips

The four lipsticks in the collection comes in Tom’s Sheer Lipstick formula, which makes sense to me, considering the amount of shimmer in the release for eyes and cheeks… An opaque lip would’ve been A LOT of look.

I like how they fit with the rest of the collection, but you know…$50 for a sheer lipstick?

*Shrugs*

I should add that they each have different amounts of coverage, though, like the coral pink shade, Paradiso, and orangey gold Skinnydip, are probably closer to medium coverage than sheer.

I plan to wear the products in some looks this week, so I’ll be able to tell more about their performance, and of course I’ll let you know what I find.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    This collection is probably in the Top 3 summer collections 2015. The cheek cream and the Golden Peach duo are to die for! Unfortunately, unless I hit a lottery jackpot there is no way I’d be able to buy any of these!

    Hahahaha! That butt picture is funny! And the amount of money that is being poured on it!!! LOL. Anyway, I’m loving this look and colors, and I kinda did a ERMAIGOD in front of my kitties when I got to the promo shot. Perfect makeup. Now I must go buy a lottery ticket! 🙂

  3. Rachel says:

    $50 for a sheer lipstick. No thank you, please!

  4. Sunny says:

    Ahhh I am so eyeing one of those duos! It’ll probably be Midnight Sea or Naked Bronze. I can’t believe I still haven’t tried a Tom Ford cream shadow, but these look like a great opportunity to finally give the formula a go!

  5. @PinkLacedPoppy says:

    I Wish i ccould afford the pink glow! it’s definitely one of the top 3,I think NARS Christopher kane and Urban decay summer will be top 3. Mainly since urban decay is more the price point people reside at. However all 3 have intense pigment and shades that make you feel all MIAMI heat! Also,we got a kitten in case you love kitten porn.

    • Karen says:

      Tell me about the kitteh!

      • @PinkLacedPoppy says:

        She is a rescue!about 6 weeks old and my daughter picked her out. My kids are obsessed so there’s a lot of kitty spam on insta. Coincidentally my insta is kitteh too hahaha. 😉 I follow you! Anywho, we formula fed her for a couple and she’s super cuddly. Going with girl since we can’t really tell yet. But my girl named her sweetie belle,After a My little pony. Belly is the super fat kitten status right now and it’s so cute I can’t even

        • Karen says:

          You are so lucky! I met Tabs when he was about a year old so I have no kitten pics of him whatsoever. Is she currently the only kitty in your house?

          • @PinkLacedPoppy says:

            No, we lost our cat jake who actually looked like tabs just before Christmas and we have another, oreo. But he hates the kids as we had him before kid hood. So we decided to get a kitten that would be used to the kids Abuse from kitten hood. LOL! I tagged you via insta but it’s private so not sure you can see but she’s Sooo cute

          • Karen says:

            Sorry to hear about Jake. I hope he’s OK. I’ll look for the pic of Belle!

  6. @PinkLacedPoppy says:

    kittens are addicting! There really should be some special club jacket

  7. MonicaP says:

  9. Katherine M says:

    I absolutely adore Tom Ford’s eye makeup but haven’t splurged on any yet. However, the Midnight Sea duo maaaayyy be calling my name…We shall see.

  10. Ashleigh says:

    That promo image reminds me a lot of Diane Kruger circa GODDESS in Troy. Holy smokes TF. Where does he find these women? Probably the same place all this beautiful makeup resides… beauty heaven.

  14. Everything looks dreamy but oh so expensive!! For me the most exciting this is Midnight Sea duo, it’s great that you can use separately or layered and it’s different to all the neutral eyeshadows and cream shadows that I’ve already got!
    Thank you for the post, I’m dying to see what they look like on you!

    Ugh, I wish I can own all things Tom Ford! I agree, the eye duos look the most exciting…and pretty darn expensive!

    Midnight Sea duo, oh Midnight Sea duo. Wherefore art thou, Midnight Sea duo? And may I win the lottery or rob a bank (looking killa good, mind you) in order to own you? Totes looking to see what kind of look you put together wearing these.

    • Karen says:

      Midnight Sea haunts my dreams!

      How are you today? It’s early here in the Bay Area so I’m just getting ready to workout. Tonight I’m going to a baseball game with a friend, and I’m really looking forward to it (GARLIC FRIES)!

      • Kwmechelle says:

        I’m well, my makeup loving friend! Garlic Fries Ohmygoooooodnessss! Sounds SO yummy. I enjoy going to baseball games. Not so much bc I enjoy the sport but bc it’s sooooo relaxing. Especially if you go on a beautiful clear night & they have fireworks afterwards. Can totally see why they call it America’s favorite past time. Both of my grandmas enjoy the sport & my maternal grandma used to play during her prime- think “A League of Their Own.” Love that movie, btw. When I want to spend quality time with them, I pull up a chair and watch baseball with them. Hope you have an awesome brow day (behave Raul!) and perfect cat liner. Enjoy!

  17. These cream shadows though… They look lovely, although I´d probably skip the powder part all together.
    And yes to more randomness.
