There has been so much hoopla over the Tom Ford Fall release, it was easy to get caught up with the "must have Fall collection" combined with a need for a rush purchase for fear of it being sold out everywhere.
When the collection was released early on Harvey Nichols I did what any
good lemming would and quickly placed my order (I also bought one of the
Nude Dip (£63) contains a golden champagne, rose copper/gold, medium
taupe and a dark brown.
The shades are soft, extremely smooth and apply
seamlessly. All shades have high pigment and a good wear time.
There is no doubt that these are pretty colours with a very high quality
texture and ease of application, however I'm not entirely happy with
this. The sticking point for me is the actual finish of the two lighter shades. Whilst
the darker shade is a satin and the taupe is shimmery (though quite shiny), the two lighter shades
are very high shine, almost metallic. I personally find frosty shades difficult to carry
off and there is too much of this going on with Nude Dip. I feel the
palette would have been better grounded with the inclusion of just one high shine shade.
Don't get me wrong as there is a lot to like about this palette but I
have to apply the lighter shades with an extremely light touch.
regret this purchase as I know how I need to apply/wear it to make it
work for me, but I think if you share my aversion to high shine/frosty
shades this might not be the must have its been cited as.
