Holy Tom Ford Summer Soleil Collection* || First Impressions


I swear it is killing if you have such beauty sitting right in front of you and you can’t start playing with it until you have photographed it. Thats the pain of being a blogger lol. 

Okay, seriously how do I even begin with this post I have no idea. But let me warn you, this is going to be a one heck of a long post, so grab a cuppa, some snacks and get ready to bite your nails with excitement cause presenting to you #TFsoleil collection 2016!

This collection has loads of new lipsticks, some re-promoted products from last summer, a brand new summer scent, and “a sensuous series of bronzers highlighters and moisturizer to illuminate summer skin throughout the year”.

Well my personal favorite mm lets see, once we get rolling into this post and I unravel the products I shall decide what really struck to me.

Lets start with lipsticks shall we ? There are two new offerings this season, the moisture core lip color and the ultra rich lip color ( unlike the last summer collection these lipsticks are much more pigmented and moisturizing at the same time).

Moisture core lip color has a sheer formula to begin with, with liquid core infused with passion fruit oil to provide luxurious moisture in a pink pop of color throughout the range. It has a subtle “golden-pearl” running through each lipstick to compliment your exotic sun kissed skin.

Otranto Peach

Mustique Rosy Mauve

Carriacou Berry 

Pipa Rosy coral

Scandola Sandy nude

Cala Di Volpe Bronze

Ultra rich lip color is a typical TF embossed lipstick with white and gold packaging. These are quite high coverage and ultra moisturizing, definitely not to be confused with the previous seasons sheer formula. You can never go wrong with a tom ford lipstick, definitely a winner from this collection. 

Purple Moon 

Temptation Waits

Solar Affair 


Revolve Around Me 

Les Mepris

Paradisco (re-promoted)


tom ford bicoastal blush

Bicoastal – two gorgeous shades in one compact, soft pink highlighter and a bold rose blush, apply wet or dry. These are absolutely stunning, highly pigmented and applies B-E-A-U-T-I-FULLY. If there was one thing you wanted to grab from this collection I would have to say, snag this baby up before it is gone.

Tomford bronze age

Love your bronzers? Here is a new addition to the collection apart from the powders there is a unique bronzing primer that is not too orange or cool toned, just perfect enough to make you look naturally warm and tanned. As a matter of fact, I have to say this is more suitable for fair to even fair medium skin tone, or even a medium skin toned can perhaps pull it off, but I’m afraid to say this might not be something for anyone darker than that. However on second thoughts, this might then just be good enough as an overall primer for any one with medium to dark skin tone. Definitely a very blend-able creamy formula that imparts a bit of color (well at-least on my skin tone) and luminosity to the complexion. 

As for the powders there are three shades :

Gold Dust (soft bronze – has a bit of gold shimmer running through it)

Terra (medium bronze – matt)

Bronze Age (deep bronze – matt)

And here are some comparisons and swatches :

On to the most exciting part :


tom ford firelust

A beautiful golden coral skin illuminator in Firelust, a re-promote from last summer, so if you missed onto this one, now is your chance to grab it. Though I was told that Summer Soleil Collection used to seasonal but hold your breathe, not anymore, as they have decided to make it permanent to support the idea of an endless summer, (and if that is not exciting enough, I don’t know what is?).

Now, I personally love liquid illuminators, as they are so versatile. You can mix it with your foundation (for a subtle glow), wear it underneath (for a lit from within sorta look), or on top of it (to dazzle your cheekbones) all in all its a perfect product to alter your inner diva.

Apart from all the wonderfully sort out products, there is a new body product, that I’m sure is going to be a new talk of the town.


tom ford moisture soufflé

A very rich, fragrance free, illuminating moisturizer. A perfect pick me up for dull skin, saturating your skin with moisture and a liquid gold glow. Perfect companion for your summer vacation. 

Apart from all the goodies, there are four eyeshadow pots, with two eye shadow shades in each, one being a cream formula the other powder. And two cream blushes, one being a re-promote Pink Sand and a new add on Pineo Sole (bronze-y sort of a shade).

Definitely will be doing a separate review of any product that stands out or maybe is not worth the splurge, so stay tuned for more on #TFsoleil.

This is already up for Pre-orders on Tomford website and will be up for Pre-sale April 4th onwards, on Sephora.

So guys, what do you all think? Is the collection worth the splurge or you will resist the urge?
