Beauty Product Reviews
Great for normal-dry skin types...The shade range could be better...Suede is too pale but Honey is too deep(nc40/42 skin tone). I do like the coverage and finish...not dewy but skin like(depends on products used to prime skin...)
I was obsessed w the OG La Mer...this powder is nice with a subtle glow.. but, I have to say Lancome Absolue powders are prettier and only $60ish comparatively. I still use my Sisley(I own Irisee and Mate) but Lancome this knocked his one down few notches. I will say this powder does blur a bit...which I LOVE!! I will continue to buy it bc hello...I LOVE makeup. I just think he Lancome Absolue powder is better and t $30 less...why not?!
Not for Black&Brown women
I am so appalled that in almost 2020 WOC (Particularly Black women) are still having to tell brands "this ain't it." Hourglass does make products for my skin tone( Mac C38 winter or nc 40/42 summer...Nars Valencia/Tahoe...Tom Ford Tawny...La Mer Suede/Honey...Cle de Peau 50...YSL BD50/55....Dior 4wO...Westman Atelier shade 7...Surratt (dew drops) shade 9...Kevyn Aucoin Etherealist SE 10,Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder shade 8...Hourglass Golden Tan...drugstore Milani shades 06&09 mixed) That way anyone(hopefully) no matter what u wear will get an idea of color range. That all said this palette works for my skin tone in winter(I am paler now about an nc37(golden) C38(olive) so far....however, I am worried that it will be meh in summertime when I can get up to nc42(warm golden olive tan skin-tone). I think as WOC we should stop spending w brands that could care less to include us! My gripe is not w/ quality bc its great...the non-inclusivity sucks so for that 3/5 for not including the entire beauty demographic
TOM FORD IS G.O.A.T W E/S
I am very upset abt Cocoa Mirage(great matte/satin everyday nude/neutral palette) and Silvered Topaz(that taupey shade is gorgeous) beng disc. Thankful I have them...I do love Body heat, Honeymoon, Disco Dust(2 colors are lovely the beige is blah), Nude Dip and Leopard Sun are all the quads I own...I did skip out on one 3 yrs back (it came in a Nordstrom Exclusive)I am upset about(i was so pretty...great colors) BUT, all in all they are super blendable and beautifully pigmented...the shimmery satins are GLORIOUS!! I think the topper shades are best applied by finger tip...(IMHO). If you are wanting to try one...wet/dry formulas are perfection. Dark tones can be used as a smooth/pretty liner. I am a Tom Ford lipstick, bronzer, highlight and e/s lover :)
almost perfect ...awful shade selection. I LOVE the finish. I am 36 w normal leaning dry skin type w tan olive - golden skin tone. Great medium coverage (my preference).
I think the deep one wouldve suited me better esp for the bronzer shade...but, I wanted this peachy highlight so...idk, its pretty to look at but this bronzer is awful and the blush is a shade i never wear. I prefer coral tones for blush. The bronzer....unpigmented!!! Highlighters: gorgeous!
Surratt Tom Ford and Kevyn Aucoin make the best liquid liners. This one is very pigmented and user friendly...plus, you get 2 sides that will be sure to last you almost a year. Most drugstore makeup esp liquid liner dries out in a month or so...at least ones I have tried. This is actually worththe $$$ for the amount you get!!
I have 6 other quads...they are totally worth it to me bc they are what I use primarily. This one is gorgeous wet/dry as lid colors w a gorgeous chocolatey liner shadow(for me). Perfect in anyone's TF e/s collection...as always EXCEPTIONAL quality!
Color is perfect
Hate this packaging...but the actual product is lovely. Its a champagne rose pale gold on my skin tobe(nc40) Love...just wish the packaging it came in wasn't so messy!
I loved Nude Vanille but sadly its discontinued. This replaced it for me. I always love my TF lippies...they are extremely creamy. This shade is a pibky nyde on medium-tan skin tones...beautiful!!!
