FOTD: It’s Tom Ford, Baby!

If you asked me what the most luxurious makeup I’ve used a year ago, I would enthusiastically tell you, it’s Chanel and Dior. But ever since Tom Ford cosmetics came into the market, it has knocked Chanel and Dior off their woolly socks in terms of high-end, luxe-to-the-max makeup.

When I first received a Tom Ford eyeshadow quad palette in the mail, I literally gasped when I took it out of the box. And I stroked it like it was something precious (it was). If you know me well, you will know that it’s very difficult for me to break into makeup so pretty. I mean, just look at the makeup I have still yet to touch! :P

Tom Fod Eye Quad and Ultra Shine Lip Gloss

Proof that I have finally used this

Still, this palette beckons me to use it. And I finally did. When my fingers and brushes finally broke the still, even powders, I was in love.

The Eye Colored Quad in Silvered Topaz is what I’d call a neutral palette. It has a charcoal grey shade (shimmer), taupe (shimmer), gold (glitter) and a dark chocolate (matte). With these shades and types of eyeshadows, it’s a very versatile palette that you can pull day and evening looks with. It’s definitely a work-friendly palette to use.

The taupe, charcoal and matte dark brown are beautiful to use. They are finely-milled, highly pigmented powder that goes on smoothly on the lids without any fallout. Personally I’m not a fan of the glittery gold. I found it slightly gritty to the touch. The rest are just gorgeous.

Tom Ford Ultra Shine Lip Gloss on Lips

The Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Rose Crush is a very glossy, creamy light coral.

So this is what I might look like with coloured lenses. It’s not, by the way. Just my reflection from the window :P

Face: Lunasol Water Gel Foundation, LuView Crystal Mineral Pact, Guerlain Meteorites in Teint Rose, SANA Make Essence Concealer
Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion, Tom Ford Eye Colored Quad in Silvered Topaz, Face of Australia Impact Curl Extreme Volume & Curl mascara, Australis Extender Lash & Brow
Cheeks: Lancome Blush Subtil Rose in Rose Melba
Lips: Tom Ford Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Rose Crush

Tom Ford eyeshadow quad palettes retail at AU$100 each, and the lip gloss AU$60. Pricey but if you asked me if I will purchase one for myself, my answer is a resounding yes. I have spent quite a fair bit on Chanel cosmetics, and although Chanel does beautiful makeup too, the quality of their eyeshadows aren’t as good as Tom Ford’s. Plus, *ahem* there isn’t much eye candy to go with Chanel. I mean, have you looked at Tom Ford? :P

    love your eye do! slightly smokish yet neutral, goes quite well with the rather nude lips too :D haven’t got a chance to take a look at TF makeup, hopefully will have a chance to check out at a place near msia ;)

      Xin: Thanks lovely. The makeup is gorgeous. In terms of colours, I wouldn’t say that they’re very colourful. Tom Ford tends to stick to neutrals or dark greens and plums. Very autumn-y colours. If you do get the chance to check it out, I highly recommend the lipsticks. They are gorgeous!

    LOVE the last shot. LOVE the look you did. LOVE how the shadow looks on you! :D I’m still on the fence about Tom Ford makeup but granted, I haven’t actually seen them in person yet. I’m a little wary about all these terribly high end makeup brands because I come down very hard on them and then I’m not sure if they really live up to the hype. Still, I’ll bide my time and wait till they come in… then I’ll decide :)

      Paris B: Aww thanks *blush*. So camwhore-y, right? :P Tsk tsk, I’m a real vainpot. Hee hee! :P

      Some will say that the TF colours are quite boring; it’s mostly neutrals and autumn-y colours. I think they’re beautiful. I do hope you get the chance to check it out soon. Heard it’s launching in Singapore soon! :)

      When I first saw the lipgloss, the colour looked pretty meh on the tube. But when it’s applied on the lips…beautiful! :)

  16. Sabine

    First off, you look gor-geous :D! I love the idea of a palette you can use day or night – the colours look beautiful. I can easily see treating myself to some Tom Ford!

      Sabine: Thanks Sabine :) Oh you should so treat yourself to one. Do try out their lipsticks. Screams of class and luxe :P

    The eyeshadows look really lovely on you! I can’t wait to test out a few TF items when I get to Sydney. I did swatch a couple of lipsticks 2 years ago and they didn’t have the other makeup products available at that time.

    By the way, I’m really into Lunasol these days. How do you like their foundation?

      Lyn: Thanks Lyn. Oooh when are you off to Sydney? TF is available only at David Jones, though I’d let you know :)

      The water gel foundation is lovely. Packed with silicones though, in case that might be a problem for you. Applies beautifully and lasts long.

    Oh my. SooOoOooo preeeetttyyy! =)

    I love the last photo of you Tine you gorgeous thing!

    Love the eye look you created as well. I have to get on using my Sahara Haze palette more but need to de-smoke it for work.

      Lilpil: Thanks darling :) The Sahara Haze palette is gorgeous!
