TOM FORD Makeup Love

Another Tom Ford post 🙂 This time around I’m talking about my latest TOM FORD makeup haul.

The moment Tom Ford Fall 2014 Color Collection released, I settled in with a concealing pen (#4 Medium/Dark). Since I haven’t tried any face /base products from the brand this was the perfect excuse.

Tom Ford concealing pen comes with a sponge tip that looks similar to Maybelline Instant Age rewind eraser. Texture wasn’t creamy as I expected. It was a thin liquid with light to medium coverage. I applied the product with my finger tips (for testing purposes) and sadly it did settle into my fine lines. Due to thin texture I had to blend the product hurriedly and my usual patting technique for under eyes didn’t work with the fast-drying consistency.

End results – not really impressed! I’m still fond of NARS Creamy Radiant concealer for daily use as it covers my dark circles and brighten the eye area in a jiffy. Over-priced product in my view.

Moving on, I also picked up 2 matte lip colors from Tom Ford Holiday 2014 collection at the Dubai Duty Free. Every beauty blogger been raving about these and being die hard Tom Ford fan myself I just couldn’t pass.

Ruby Rush (Red) and Plum Rush (Deep mauve plum) are probably the best matte lipsticks I own. Colors are crazy beautiful, bright, super pigmented and lasts so long (even after eating and drinking). I own a few matte lipsticks from M.A.C, Chanel and other high-end brands. Comparatively, Tom Ford has outdone the notion of ‘matte lipstick” with this collection. I believe the creamy, non-drying, satin finish texture that has to be blamed.

These aren’t yet released in Dubai (as far as I know). Duty Free didn’t have it in display either but since I’ve asked, SA showed me 5 mattes received the day before.

If you like your lipsticks to be matte then here is the best of the best. I got myself Flame (a bright orange) too. Damn! Because a girl cannot have too many Tom Ford lipsticks!
