I feel like each season I write the same thing...Tom Ford does it again. Without a doubt it is the brand that never ceases to amaze and wow me. The man just gets it. The Soleil Collection is all about Summer heat and it's white hot (pun one hundred percent intended).
The collection captures the sensuality of Summer and focuses on bronzy shades, metallics, and getting that perfect pink sun-kissed glow on your cheeks.
The new cream + powder duos deliver insane pigmentation, have a beautiful formula, and can be worn multiple ways (layered or each on it's own.) A little goes an incredibly long way and the blend flawlessly. Shown above from left to right : Black Oyster, Midnight Sea, and Golden Peach. Golden Peach has been my day-to-day choice as of late. It gives the perfect pink tint that has been super on trend, but the shimmer overlay helps to add a bit of coppery tone. Black Oyster is the perfect duo for a dramatic night time look - smokey and metallic. Midnight Sea is definitely the most fun out of the bunch. The cream shade is the exact match from the Tom Ford S/S 15' runway and creates the most amazing grungy, lived in, smokey eye. Layering the blue shade on top creates an amazing effect.
The two shades above; Rose Soleil and Paradiso embody everything I could ask for in Summer. Rose Soleil - a deep nude is creamy, slightly sheer, and filled with a bit of shimmer. Paradiso is the perfect pop of sheer color - a coral-y pink. The lipsticks are super moisturizing; filled with Vitamin C and E, Shea Butter, and natural oils. They sit so comfortably on the lips and look perfect with or without a tan.
Hands down my favorite product from the collection is the Cream Cheek Color in Pink Sand. It's bright color gives a healthy glow and the perfect radiant finish. It's the perfect compliment to dewy Summer skin (especially with a bit of tan). The bronzer I have is the matte version called 'Terra'. I often go for bronzers that contain shimmer so I was excited to try out a matte option. It is a warmer toned bronzer and is perfect for this time of year where I'm not so tan. The finish is silky and lightweight with a great pigmentation.
My first ever body oil and I'm hooked. This little bottle just smells like summer and makes me happy. The spray distributes the perfect amount of shimmer and gives an amazing glow. It isn't sticky, dries down so nicely, and one spray gives a good amount of shimmer. I cannot wait for Summer nights out wearing this - especially post beach days.
