Beauty ~ Revisiting all the Tom Ford Beauty Items in my Stash


According to my standards, I don't have a large stash of Tom Ford beauty items.  I love the packaging but it's not enough to make me spend money on items that I don't need. I have cut back tremendously on my makeup spending.  I'm limiting myself to purchasing only those items that I need which compliment my skin tone.  Since there's so many new releases with products that aren't #woc friendly, this has allowed me to start using up a lot of products from my stash.  Below are highlights of these items along with links to my written reviews where you can find lots of photos of each.

Tom Ford Blush in Flush - The blush is velvety smooth in texture and heavily pigmented.  A light hand and fluffy brush brush is definitely a must. The color is a matte  peachy coral that's absolutely gorgeous and compliments any skin tone.  It's the perfect blush for any occasion and makes you feel naturally beautiful when wearing it.... it's well loved by me and one of my ATF's.

Tom Ford Blush in Wicked  -  It's a very beautiful matte pink that's not too bright but very pigmented. If you are a brown skin gal like myself, these pink blushes can only be worn certain times of the year. I prefer wearing them in the winter months when my complexion is a little lighter than in the summer months.  I reserve all summer months for my beloved 27 Orange blushes reviewed here!

Tom Ford Bronzed Amber Illuminating Cheek Color - Ladies... this is one of the most beautiful bronzer/blush combinations I've ever seen.  This illuminating cheek color can be worn as a bronzer or applied over the cheeks giving a subtle warm glow.  For a women with brown skin like mine, this illuminator definitely takes my cheeks to another dimension.

Tom Ford Stroked Blush Highlighter Duo - Stroked comes with a beautiful highlighter on top that has subtle iridescent hues of ivory, melon and taupe with just a hint of shimmer that ties them all together. I believe it compliments all complexions because of the warmth and ability to blend out into total sheer-ness leaving just a subtle glow.

Tom Ford Violet Dusk Eye Shadow Palette - When I read that the Violet Dusk palette was being discontinued I knew I just had to have it. This palette has two shimmers and two mattes.  The colors are not that pigmented but vibrant enough to create several looks going from day to night.  It's a great palette for traveling and for everyday wear.

Tom Ford Burnished Amber Palette - This is a must have palette or every women of color that loves a little luxury in her life. The colors are so velvety smooth and pigmented and it's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.  This palette is definitely a travel companion as well creating multiple one, two or three color looks to compliment any outfit or occasion.

Tom Ford Naivete Lip Gloss - This lip gloss is very pigmented and it lasted on my lips for over 2 hours.  So I would definitely say it's worth the money  ($27) if  you can afford it. It's dark and vampy and looks gorgeous with sexy makeup and messy hair.

Tom Ford Black Dahlia Lipstick - This is one of those colors that's not for the faint at heart!  If you already own Rebel by Mac, you'll find these two colors to be quite similar.  Rebel has been a hot color for fall since it's first release around 10yrs ago and Black Dahlia was launched as a LE color for Christmas 2014.

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Miniature Lipsticks - These were limited edition lipsticks that were much smaller than the original lipsticks and were only released for Christmas 2014.  In this collection there were 50 colors released which made it overwhelming to choose from.  I picked 9 colors which I though complimented my skin tone and those that I knew I would wear.
