TOM FORD: 2017 SUMMER SOLEIL
You might have noticed by now that I’m a total fangirl when it comes to all-things Tom Ford. Tom Ford is without a doubt, one of my all time favourite beauty brands, everything from the packaging to the products themselves is absolutely stunning. The prices are definitely steeper than your average cosmetics brand, but Tom Ford isn’t your average cosmetics brand. Last week Tom Ford kindly sent me a number of their products from the gorgeous new 2017 Summer Soleil range and I just had to snap some photos and tell you guys a bit more about what you can expect from the collection.
If you’re like me and you love a subtle tint of colour on your lips then you need these Tom Ford ‘Clutch-Size Lip Balms‘ in your life. On first impressions, I was a little daunted by the rounded bullet, but since giving them a whirl I’ve come to realise that the shape actually helps to make applying the product easy and stress-free. What I love about these balms is that they’re super sheer but they give your lips a gorgeous, subtle wash of colour. The balms themselves are incredibly moisturising and glide onto the lips leaving a deliciously juicy colour. It’s hard for me to pick a shade as my favourite, but if I had to choose I would have to say that the colour L’Odissea is the one I love the most. L’Odissea is a stunning orangey coral colour which is exactly the kind of shade that I like to rock during the summer months. You all know I’m all about simple, natural-looking makeup, so these clutch-sized balms are everything I could ever wish for and more. So tiny and cute!
I’m never going to be someone who sits down in front of the mirror for hours perfecting my makeup (I’m way too lazy for that) so contouring has never been something that I’ve had the patience to do first thing in the morning. For me, this Soleil Contouring Compact gives new meaning to the contouring trend and gives me everything I need to create that sculpted look with minimal effort. The palette contains three new summer shades including a blush, highlighter and bronzer and every single one of them is absolutely STUNNING. I was sent the palette in the shade ‘Soleil Afterglow’ which works beautifully with my skin tone. The vibrant pink gives my cheeks a flush of colour, the bronzer works to mimic that summery sun kissed vibe that I adore, while the highlighter helps to give my skin a look of luminosity. The Tom Ford Soleil Bronzing Brush is an incredibly soft retractable kabuki brush which is great for tossing in your handbag. This palette is simply beautiful and I can’t wait to rock a super natural contoured look during the summer months!
I adore Tom Ford fragrances (Aslan and I absolutely adore every single one of the Tom Ford perfumes and you can often find us at the counter trying different ones on) so when Tom Ford sent me a few of their ‘All-Over Body Sprays’ to try I had hearts in my eyes. I was lucky enough to receive a spray in the scents ‘Costa Azzurra’, ‘Neroli Portofino’ and ‘Mandarino Di Amalfi’. The great thing about Tom Ford fragrances is that the majority of them are unisex (I’ve been known to steal a spritz or two from Aslan’s collection from time to time). Aslan’s favourite fragrance from the entire Tom Ford collection is ‘Neroli Portofino’ which is a scent that’s inspired by the Italian Riviera. Neroli Portofino is quite a spicy but fresh scent with its notes of Tuscan Neroli, Italian Bergamot and Lavender. I love that scent just as much as Aslan does. There are four different fragrances of the All-Over Body Sprays so try them out and let me know which one is your fave!
The Tom Ford 2017 Summer Soleil collection is truly stunning. Everything from the packaging to the products is absolutely beautiful and totally perfect for the upcoming summer months. I’m a total lipstick girl so for me the Lip Balms are definitely the product that excites me the most. Let know in the comments down below and tell me which of the products you can’t wait to rock this summer.
