Tom Ford Updates

Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available. 

 

For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping! 

Re: Tom Ford Updates

Anne, Portofino smells wonderful - but it makes me want to go for a swim.  I like it, but not sure yet if I want to smell like it. 

 

Anyway, it is too strong a scent for me...as are all Tom Ford perfumes (as well as many other brands).  I had asked for a sample of the oil, but I don't think they added that to my bag.  I have samples of Black Orchid, Velvet Orchid, Tobacco Vanille, and Eau De Wood from today (I have Rose something from a while ago). 

 

I might try to see if I can wear the perfume lightly.  Maybe dab a bit on a tissue and then rub it mostly off and then dab the tissue on me.  Otherwise I will have a massive headache in no time.  I also only enjoy perfume when there is only a faint whiff of it.....really faint.  So if I try these on, I will only truly enjoy it if it is but barely a whiff.

 

Oh brother....I am a pain.

 

 

Re: Tom Ford Updates

I forgot to add that the Vancouver Nordstrom that is opening in the fall will have a TF full counter -- the counter manager in Ottawa said that he would be able to order anything from Vancouver and have it shipped here for free. Looking forward to having Nordstrom beauty events and GWPs (that are not brand specific) like those in the US!

Holt's is my only option right now for TF--and I love the SA that I deal with now but if Holt's new ICON Privileges reward program doesn't benefit shoppers who cannot shop in store, then I'll shop where it benefits me most in the fall.

Re: Tom Ford Updates

do u guys know if they are doing any preorders on the summer collection at holts in van right now.

I really want lipstick in paradiso from TF, i regret not buying it last year, I don't want to miss this twice

Re: Tom Ford Updates

I think you will be able to call Vancouver store and get it shipped to your place for free as well. I went to Holts today, the SA told me she does not have any info on summer collection, it won't be here for at least another month.

Re: Tom Ford Updates

I was planning to visit holts in van tomorrow to ask whether they are doing preorders on the summer collection! 

Re: Tom Ford Updates

They used to have a very nice counter manager in Vancouver, but now I think she transferred to Dior counter.

Re: Tom Ford Updates

I can't wait for Nordstrom to be opened here in Vancouver! I am feeling very excited about it Smiley Very Happy

alright, so i agree with everyone that this is harder to work with than our typical tom shadows... dark blue wet should look like that dry, its really a bummer. I thought I would love the light shimmer shade on its own, but its very light, and just works as a topper for other shadows. Sorry ms baine if this is in the wrong thread .i don't know where to put it! 

this look was done with fix+ added to make them pop

Re: Tom Ford Updates

Regardless, you create a beautiful look. Smiley Happy Yes, I wish he will change the formula. It's kinda suck to spend time to make these work.

Re: Tom Ford Updates

You are absolutely in the right thread. I've been waiting for your look. Yeah, the quality- I'm assuming because of this wet/dry formula is difficult to work with. I only bought the blue because I'm hearing that mixed with the purple, you can get a really pretty spring- like purple. I'm going to try that when my blue arrives. Unfortunately it's not a duo you can do alone- you have to mix it with other things in order to make it work. 

Re: Tom Ford Updates

I agree, i mixed a mufe lavender afterwards and it made a shimmer shift I liked. I hope the rest of the future formulas aren't like this!!! :/

Re: Tom Ford Updates

I seriously hope not either, or I'm going to have to jump ship... to Gucci.... 

Re: Tom Ford Updates

I like the Gucci shadows a lot...

Re: Tom Ford Updates

I'm still struggling with my flu and in a bad mood...but I wanted to report back on my Jade duo.  I'll get my act together and do a more detailed review but for now...

 

The colors are just gorgeous but I do find the formula a little tougher than the other TF shadow (yes, one) I have (I'm super new to the brand but trying to learn).  It doesn't wear as well and the darker shade swatches better than it applies.  The lighter shade is a little powdery but applies and blends beautifully.  And to get the really amazing transformative color effect using the two shades together I need to use more of the lighter shade than I expected but when I do it's magic.

 

So while that might sound critical it isn't.  This duo is so fun, there is a learning curve, but it's very unusual and a total hit.  Just lovely.  A really smoky and eye opening look.

 

I just need to play with it (with normal and not swollen red eyes) to create the best looks.

 

 

 

 

Re: Tom Ford Updates

Megan I have had the exact same experience with the Indigo duo. Definitely a different quality than say, the Nude Dip quad. I am new to TF also and have only 2 quads and now this duo. I do like the colors a lot and then mixing the two colors gives you such a beautiful and unique third color. So it's really a trio. I've tried them both wet and dry and think I like them better dry. They were too patchy when wet. I found that after applying the two shades I just blend really well with the brush I used for the lighter one but not adding any add'l shadow) and that helped. However, my other two quads are easier to work with. Still...have I contemplated getting another of the duos? Of course! But I haven't pulled the trigger yet. I'm thinking I may not since I've just gotten some beautiful greens and plums from other brands. And I've been taking stock of things and well...to say I have too much is like finally admitting I need to use up and/or pass on what I have.

Re: Tom Ford Updates

Thanks for the input…sounds like we're all finding the same thing with these quads!  Pretty shades and they still work beautifully.  I have not tried them wet….I might do that today.

Admitting I need to use what I have…hm…I'll consider that.  Maybe we can have a pact (if we think we can possibly keep it).

Re: Tom Ford Updates

Ha ha...keep a pact like that?! What would we LIVE for??!! LOL!

Re: Tom Ford Updates

I thought it was just me when I first got it. The quality is certainly a bit different than the quads. Of course, cause I'm an addict, I still bought all three, but I wasn't as into the quality like I was with the other releases.

Re: Tom Ford Updates

See I needed real feedback from a real expert on TF!!!  The color transforming effect is so lovely and they're still beautiful!  Thanks for confirming.

Re: Tom Ford Updates

And another one bites the dust Smiley Sad The promo reminded me that I had and loved Indian Rose so I decided to pull it out this morning...AND Rancid Smiley Sad

 

So sad. That makes two for me gone bad this year.

Re: Tom Ford Updates

I'm so sorry that you experienced that with your TF lipsticks @ChristalM.That is such a waste, especially when they are so pricey. May I ask how old your Indian Rose lipstick was when it went bad? I purchased quite a few at the same time 7 months ago and I'm afraid that they all might go bad all at once 😅
