TOM FORD Limited Edition SS18 Shadow Extrême
Up first is the TOM FORD Limited Edition SS18 Shadow Extrême which is eye shadow from Tom Ford 2018 runway collection.
Tom Ford says:
A CARBON BLACK SHADE IN A GLITTERING FINISH CREATES A GLAMOROUSLY DECADENT EYE. APPLY THE SPARKLING PAILLETTE SHADOW OVER THE GRAPHIC SHAPE AND EYE GLOSS.
It is highly pigmented gunmetal sliver shade with a lot of glitters in it. This particular shade is perfect for smokey eyes even if you wear it all alone or blend it with eye liner. Formula is intense, super glittery, highly pigmented and easy to blend. First layer would give a medium wash but easily buildable by applying more layers. This particular shade is trendy and going to be one of my favorites for this whole year.
I would not say it is an eye shadow for daily wear but it is gorgeous enough to wear on date nights or any special occasion.
While applying I’ll have to be careful because some glitters would fall out but it is not the case when it is on eye lids, It stays all day long.
Swatch below on eyes, applied in multiple layers to show the colour and how sparkly it is. Also wearing Mascara TOM FORD Lash and Brow Tint in Turquoise (Scroll down for more details)
TOM FORD Limited Edition SS18 Eye Gloss
TOM FORD Limited Edition SS18 Eye Gloss is smooth clear eye gloss with gel like consistency. I have read that it is from their last collection re-promoted with new packaging. However this is new in my collection so have no idea about previous one.
It is clear non sticky long lasting formula which goes on smoothly and create a perfect sheen. If you are a fan of eye gloss like me you would definitely love it. It gives a beautiful high shine and perfect glossy/wet look but not tacky or sticky at all.
Tom Ford describes:
LACQUER LIDS WITH SLEEK, TRANSLUCENT GLEAM FOR A WET, SECOND-SKIN LOOK DESIGNED TO HIGHLIGHT EVERY SKIN TONE.
I always like to wear eye gloss alone for that natural glossy chic look but at times I would apply it on eye shadow for the trendy look. Applying it over eye shadow could be tricky as it will crease the shadow which is obvious with any gloss. [Thats because of applying a liquid/gel over creme or powder so it will definitely crease or smudge to some extent].In picture below you can see how some shadow has creased over to the applicator.
It stays put very well and doesn’t bother me but could be annoying for some of you (This could be totally personal that how do you feel a gloss on your eye lids ). It is high quality, high shine clear gloss which is not sticky at all.
I love the packaging as well. It comes in a transparent square edged bottle/tube with twist up mirrored-like silver cap attached with sponge tip applicator that does its job nicely.
If you are an eye gloss person and like to wear it on daily basis this could be the one you have been looking for because of its quality and long lasting non-sticky formula.
It was very hard to capture a swatch it alone over eyes but I tried my best to give a better idea below.
In pictures below I swatched it on SS18 Shadow Extrême. You can also see little smudging happened while applying gloss.
Overall thought: I would definitely wear it alone to give my eyes some extra shine and glossy look. I like the look it creates wearing with eye shadow but at the same time it smudges a bit. I would rate it 4 stars for its quality and formula.
TOM FORD Lash and Brow Tint
Tinted mascara has always been interesting for me. I always like to wear colored mascara for more trendy and dramatic look. As far as I know in big brand names Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Vinyl Couture comes in large number of shades. After that TOM FORD Lash and Brow Tint comes in four beautiful shades.
Tom Ford Describes:
AMPLIFIED. VERSATILE. INTENSE. FOUR VIBRANT SHADES OF INTENSE METALLIC SHINE COAT LASHES AND OR BROWS WITH DRAMATIC, GILDED EFFECTS. FORMULATED TO DEFINE EYES WITH BUILDABLE MOLTEN COLOR IMPACT, KLEIN BLUE, BRIGHT AUBERGINE, ICONOCLASTIC TURQUOISE AND POLISHED COPPER PREMIERE IN THE SLEEK REFLECTIVE CHROME OF TOM FORD EXTREME. MIX, MATCH AND EXPERIMENT ON HAIR WITH ABANDON. LASH-TESTED, BROW-APPROVED.
TOM FORD Lash and Brow Tint formula is shimmery and pigmented, enhances the lashes with intense metallic shine. It does not smudge and lasts all day long unless you wash your face.
If you always want to wear classic black/noir mascara TOM FORD Lash and Brow Tint could not be the must have for you, but if you are like me and want to have different trendy/dramatic look believe me they are some beautiful shades. The good thing is because these mascaras are good to apply on brows as well which I probably would never do but I will use them to highlight my hair sometimes.
Again the packaging is up to the mark of Tom Ford beauty. It comes in a mirrored- silver cylindrical shaped bottle/tube with a long sleek applicator brush.
The application is easy and one coat would be enough to highlight the lashes. You can always do second coat to bring out more colour.
TOM FORD Lash and Brow Tint is available in four beautiful shades including
♦ TFX21 BLUE
♦ TFX22 MAGENTA
♦ TFX23 TURQUOISE
♦ TFX24 COPPER
I own it in TFX22 [Magenta] which is slightly towards pink with purple undertone and TFX23 [Turquoise] which is perfect teal.

All Four Shades
Tom Ford Ultra-Rich Lip Color
Tom Ford Ultra-Rich Lip Color is such a nice hydrating lipstick which gives a beautiful shine to the lips. I wouldn’t say it a matte lipstick but it is not glossy either.
According to details on Tom Ford Website:
FULL-COVERAGE, HIGH-SHINE LIP COLOR THAT MOISTURIZES LIPS. LIPS APPEAR SMOOTHER, SOFTER AND SUPPLER, WHILE REDUCING LIP FLAKING. LUMINOUS AND VIVID LIP COLOR LASTS UP TO 6 HOURS.
Formula is pigmented and coverage is opaque in one swipe. It comes in a beautiful Tom Ford signature white case with gold square edges. Texture is creamy and light stays on for few hours without eating but I wouldn’t mind reapplying it. It doesn’t dry out or flakes but hydrates the lips. Colour is rich and luxurious, appears slight different than in tube.It glides on lips smoothly.
Swatch below Tom Ford Ultra-Rich Lip Color in 01 Purple Noon on lips
Price wise I would not expect less from Tom Ford but it worth the price. It comes in some beautiful shades including nudes, pink and coral. In beauty look below I wore it in shade 01 Purple noon which is warm red. I would definitely not wear this shade daily but on special occasions.
