For more than three years now, I’ve been a total devotee to Tom Ford Beauty. It’s a luxury brand that has a cult beauty following around the world for a reason – and no it’s not just because it makes for Instagrammable gold. In particular? Their Soleil Collections that are appropriately released every year, just in time for summer. The range includes their core pieces like the Glow Bronzer, which I use year- round, but there are always new products launched and this season they’ve introduced Soleil Lip Blush which is available at Bloomingdale’s starting this April.
The Lip Blush is a unique addition this season which features 24K gold flecks, yes. It. Has. Gold. In. It! But it’s way more than just a fancy new product to whip out as a conversation piece. The balm is unique in that it glides on smooth like a regular lip balm with all the moisturizing properties you hope and wish for, but after a few seconds, the Lip Blush delivers on the blush part, turning your lips a subtle and natural share of your current kissers.
Mr. Ford is a genius when it comes to introducing new products that help build out the range that brings you the look of the “Tom Ford Face.” And a few months ago, I was invited into the newly renovated New York City Tom Ford Beauty counter at Bloomingdales where I sat down with one of their lead makeup artists to discover what exactly goes into getting the look of the Tom Ford Face.
At the core, it all starts with a beautiful and natural complexion. Mr. Ford’s principals are ones that I’ve lived by through the years and stick closely to when doing my makeup every morning. His Moto?
And each of the products he creates beautifully fits into each category. Including the Soleil Lip Blush with is the perfect finish to every look.
