Neiman Marcus, satisfy Tom Ford…Beauty. As in the new Tom Ford appeal line. The extremely anticipated collection just recently introduced in choose Neiman Marcus stores (call ahead to check, in the U.S. at 1.888.888.4757), as well as with the San Francisco Union Square joint being one of them, I zipped over there yesterday to take a better look.
You may keep in mind when we sneaked a peek at a couple of pieces from the line back in October. a lot of of us liked the direction Tom was taking, however we weren’t absolutely on board with the high prices.
The new counter seems to in shape the products well. like the packaging, it’s sleek, sophisticated as well as somewhat masculine, with welcoming dark chocolate brown backgrounds as well as accents in gold. It looks to me like somebody desired people to get in there in play, as everything’s laid out in clear, easy-to-access displays, so you won’t have to go digging with trays.
A high cost on beauty
If you’re a BOGO babe who lives for bargains, well, this sure ain’t no discount rate line. products variety from $30 apiece for glosses as well as nail polishes to — brace yourself — $250 for a skin care serum (OUCH!).
The line’s a relatively detailed compilation of skin care, brushes, makeup as well as nail polishes all aimed at achieving a extremely certain Tom Ford appeal look, a look characterized by dewy skin, a sculpted face, strong brows as well as a focus on the Augen. It’s bold, sensual as well as glamorous, as well as feels kinda tropical to me, like NARS on a disco holiday in the South of France.
Cats & Makeup Sweatshirt?
Nudes function prominently in the color collection — a wise decision, I’d say, particularly thinking about the prices. Seriously, if you’re gonna throw down lots of dollars on a single product, you want it to be something you can wear every day. extremely few gals will spend $75 for a combination they can only take out when a year.
Making me over
Last night at the store, Tom Ford Account executive Alberto Mayoral sat me down for a makeover, what he called “the total Tom Ford experience!”
“Alberto,” I said, “I’m not terrified of color.”
He need to have taken me to heart since he went with a purple eye utilizing the Eye Colour Quad in Violet Dusk ($75), a neutral cheek with Cheek color in Ravish ($55) as well as a reddish burgundy lip with the Lip color in Crimson Noir ($48).
I like exactly how it turned out — colorful, however at the exact same time, not all up in yer grill.
Wo soll man anfangen?
A great question. Alberto suggested starting with generally lovely shades, like with a few of the colors in the Eye color Quads in Silvered Topaz as well as Titanium Smoke, both fantastic for smokey looks, as well as Coca Mirage for something a lot more neutral ($75 each).
For cheeks, look to the Cheek color in Flush, Frantic Pink or like Lust ($55 each).
For lips, the nude Lip colors in brownish pink Deep Mink, yellowish pink Coco Ravish as well as peachy Pink Adobe ($48 each).
Looking at a few of the products…
Some of the new products that caught my eye…
