Tom Ford Winter 2018 Soleil Eye & Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

Winter 2018

Tom Ford Beauty Winter 2018 Soleil Eye & Cheek Palette ($155.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette featuring four eyeshadows, one blush, and one highlighter. I find that these palettes are very hit or miss and tend to lack consistency within each respective release. I had higher hopes for this season’s iteration as the formula used throughout is more of the gel-powder variety. The eyeshadows were so-so, while the cheek products were much nicer.


Winter 2018 (Blush)

Winter 2018 (Blush) is a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a natural matte finish. It had the type of finish that didn’t have overt shimmer, but it didn’t look flat on my skin when applied and blended out. There were barely-there gold flecks in the pan, but it didn’t seem to have much of a true sheen/shimmer on my cheeks that I could see. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer, but it had a denser texture that required a dense, rounded brush to pick up well. On my skin, the blush blended out easily and lasted for almost nine hours before showing signs of fading.

Winter 2018 #1

Winter 2018 #1 is a bright, medium gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a frosted, lightly sparkly finish. The texture was smooth to the touch, but it felt a little drier and had a tendency to sheer out when applied. It needed to be used with a dampened brush to get to full coverage without having to use three layers packed/pressed on. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, C12-20 Acid Peg-8 Ester, Hdi/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Glycerin, Squalane, Polysorbate 80, Ethylhexylglycerin, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan), Caprylyl Glycol, Dicalcium Phosphate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Silica, Tin Oxide, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Aluminum Calcium Sodium Silicate, [+/- Mica, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Ultramarines (Ci 77007), Carmine (Ci 75470), Iron Oxides (Ci 77499), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Iron Oxides (Ci 77492), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (Ci 77510), Ferric Ferrocyanide (Ci 77510), Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163), Manganese Violet (Ci 77742), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Chromium Oxide Greens (Ci 77288), Chromium Hydroxide Green (Ci 77289)

Winter 2018 #2

Winter 2018 #2 is a light-medium, peachy-pink with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color coverage applied dry, though it was deeper and less prone to sheering out when used with a dampened brush. The texture felt smooth and finely-milled, but it ended up being a little dusty when initially applied to my lid. The finish changed within five minutes, as the eyeshadow “melted” and looked more satiny on. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me before fading noticeably. I know the brand can and has done better, so this palette fell short for me.

Ingredients

Winter 2018 #3

Winter 2018 #3 is a medium, bronzy brown with warm undertones and a golden sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation applied dry, while applying with a dampened brush yielded opaque coverage that went on more smoothly. The eyeshadow had a smooth, denser feel to it, though it wasn’t stiff or difficult to pick up with a brush nor was it a challenge to blend out on my lid. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably on me.

Winter 2018 #4

Winter 2018 #4 is a deep, navy blue with strong, cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer when applied with a dry brush. I was able to get slightly richer coverage using a dampened brush, but it was harder to diffuse and blend out when I did so, as it wasn’t the most blendable used dry to begin with. The texture felt a little drier to me and was more prone to dustiness in the pan. The color started to show signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear.

Ingredients

Winter 2018 (Highlighter)

Winter 2018 (Highlighter) is a soft peach with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The highlighter was richly pigmented with a soft, smooth texture; it was more yielding compared to the other shades in the palette, yet not at all powdery. It applied evenly to my cheeks and diffused nicely along the edges with minimal effort. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Make Up For Ever 103 Pink White Star Lit Diamond Powders Reviews & Swatches

103 Pink White

Make Up For Ever 103 Pink White Star Lit Diamond Powder ($26.00 for 0.08 oz.) has a silvery-beige base that has a more dominant, pink-to-lavender shift from the shimmer and sparkle in it. On me, it read more iridescent, cool-toned pink than beige most of the time, both on eyes and on cheeks. The texture was full of sparkle, so there wasn’t much of a base color until it was really buffed onto the skin, and then it seemed like there was a subtle, pearlescent sheen coming through from the base pigment.

As one might expect, it’s not particularly easy to apply or to wear without some sort of adhesive spray, dampened brush, or tacky base. I think if you’re prepared to use one of those aforementioned items with this product, you won’t be disappointed, but it’s not much of a standalone product without getting moderate fallout over time. It was easiest to wear buffed onto my cheeks, as it melded with the skin there more than when I applied it to the inner corner, as I enjoyed noticeable fallout throughout the eight hours I wore it for (unless I used it with a setting spray). There was light sparkle migration over time but what I’d deem “acceptable” for a such a sparkle-heavy product. It had medium, buildable pigmentation depending on how it was applied and what it was applied over.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.08 oz. - $325.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "buildable, blendable, [and] light-reflective" and can be used on the eyes, face, and body. The brand says that they can be applied with "brush or fingers," and while they say that "for cleaner application and stronger hold, wet brush with" an adhesive spray, it does imply it can be used without for less clean/less hold. The powders seem as finely-milled as they're going to get, but they have micro-sparkle and sparkle to them so they have a drier, almost loose glittery texture overall. Some shades seemed to have a stronger base color that came through than others, which were more glittery overall with a sheerer or transparent base.

I wore several of them on cheeks as well as eyes with most shades performing decently without an adhesive spray/tacky base, but the wear time was between six and eight hours with light to moderate fallout (depending on the shade) on eyes and eight hours on cheeks with some sparkle migration over time. I definitely would recommend using the product with an adhesive spray for the "cleaner application and stronger hold" the brand says it would result in.

Tom Ford Rougir & Universel Lumiere Lips Reviews & Swatches

Rougir

Tom Ford Beauty Rougir Lumiere Lip ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a translucent pink that looked like a barely-tint of pink that gave my lips a soft sheen. I find this type of product harder to review, as they look similar across the shades and, to some degree, depend on one’s natural lip color, but it doesn’t seem like the type of product where the shade itself matters much. The texture was lightweight, balm-like but not too slippery, and comfortable to wear, but it the comfort and hydration lasted less than two hours and never felt like it nourished over the long term–like it only felt hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$55.00/0.10 oz. - $550.00 Per Ounce

The formula is described as "translucent" and is a "lip balm [that] reacts to the wearer's pH" so that it has a "personalized wash of color." In my experience, a lot of products that are supposed to react to the pH all end up pretty similar when applied and are very subtle in difference, if at all, when applied to my lips. They live up to the translucent part of the spiel, but they have really short wear time--an hour or two before it feels gone--and not that much hydration. I actually really love Tom Ford's Lip Balm (in a squeeze tube), but these just fell short for me. They had a very subtle vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Universel

Tom Ford Beauty Universel Lumiere Lip ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) appeared as a translucent peach when swatched, and it seemed to add a smidgen of warmth to my natural lip color but it was hard to tell. From a normal viewing distance, it looked the same as most of the other shades in the range, though this was the original shade that launched (and then spawned three more this season). It had a lightweight, balm-like consistency that felt emollient but wasn’t thick, heavy, or too slippery on my lips. The product was comfortable to wear and felt like it kept my lips hydrated while it was on, but after wearing the formula back-to-back, my lips didn’t feel hydrated after it wore down. The shine lasted for an hour and a half (and it lost its comfort by that point).

Colour Pop Salvaje 12-Pan Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a new, limited edition mix of warmer neutrals and pops of blue/teal. What I liked about some of the neutrals in the palette was the inclusion of shades like Malbec and Sangria, which are very red-toned but almost “cool” in tone compared to the typical red/berry shades we see. The quality was good across 11 of the 12 shades; I only had issues with Corona, which was a more loosely-pressed, more glittery shade that worked fine with a dampened brush or fingertip (what I’d consider easily solvable).

Luna

Luna is a soft peach with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The consistency felt denser and thicker, though not heavy, and this resulted in richer, opaque pigmentation despite it being a lighter, softer shade. It stayed on well for eight hours before I noticed slight fading.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.04 oz. - $125.00 Per Ounce

The new Pressed Powder Shadow formula is supposed to be ?highly pigmented? with an ?ultra-velvety and silky? texture that is ?long-wearing? and ?adheres easily to the eyes.? Most of the shades have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation that applies well to bare skin, blends out without issue, and lasts for seven to eight hours. The matte eyeshadows tend to be a little more powdery, though soft and finely-milled, in the pan, while the shimmers have a creamier, dense consistency. Occasionally, the more sparkly or metallic shades apply better with fingertips or a dampened brush.

Cafecito

Cafecito is a deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, velvety texture that was easy to work with as the color applied evenly and blended out easily along the edges. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Estrella

Estrella is a peachy beige with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The color coverage was opaque in a single layer, while the eyeshadow had a soft, blendable texture that was lightly creamy to the touch. This shade lasted nicely on my lid for eight hours.

Celosa

Celosa is a deep, rosy copper with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff that adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin without having to use it with a dampened brush. The texture was soft, lightly creamy, and blendable on my lid. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Malbec

Malbec is a deep, reddened plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was fantastic, while, the eyeshadow had a slightly drier, stiffer texture in the pan, though it seemed to pick up well with a brush and didn’t take much extra effort to diffuse along the edges. It wore well for eight hours on me before it started to fade.

Patrona

Patrona is a medium-dark plum with warmer, copper undertones and a frosted sheen. It had rich color coverage that adhered well to bare skin with even application and blended out nicely along the edges. The consistency was lightly creamy, dense but not thick or too-firmly pressed in the pan. It lasted well for eight hours on me.

Vibra

Vibra is a blackened, bluish-teal with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. The color payoff was opaque in one layer, while the texture was soft, a little dusty in the pan, but it blended out without trouble on my lid and went on evenly from the get-go.

Sirena

Sirena is a medium-dark teal with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty texture that was a bit thinner. I expected it to be harder to work with, but it applied without sheering out too much and was buildable. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Corona

Corona is a medium-dark gold with subtle, warm undertones and a glittery finish. This was one of the weaker shades in the palette, as it was more crumbly and felt loosely-pressed, which resulted in fallout and more difficulty in applying it to bare skin. I had to use it with a dampened brush or fingertip to make it workable. It lasted well for eight hours but had moderate fallout over time.

Sangria

Sangria is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was rich and opaque to the point where a little went a long way. The texture was velvety and soft with slight powderiness in the pan, but that seemed to go further in helping this shade diffuse and blend out easily. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.

ColourPop Super Shock Vault (Holiday 2018) Reviews & Swatches (Part 1 of 5)

Nix and Nox

Colour Pop Nix and Nox Super Shock Shadow Duo ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) contains a pale, bluish-teal and silvery-taupe where both shades had a glittery finish. They had wetter textures, which made them less pigmented harder to build up; they would work better as layering shades. When I applied Nox over Nix (lighter over darker), it created a silvery sage green. Both shades did last awhile, and I had slight fallout with Nix but no visible fallout with Nox.

Editor’s Note: All of these shades are/were part of the Is This Real Life Super Shock Shadow Vault. I mistakenly thought they were going to be sold individually, so I had already applied (for testing) over a dozen shades, which I’ll be reviewing in full. Depending on what my testing schedule looks like over the next week, I may or may not end up testing the ones I haven’t yet worn. You never know with ColourPop!

Nix

Nix is a medium teal with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of gold glitter. It was more emollient, which resulted in more semi-sheer coverage that was hard to build up and apply evenly to the lid. It wore well for 10 hours with minimal fallout and no creasing.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. - $71.43 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a ?wetter? feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I?ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I?ve seen from readers, many love them but some don?t like them at all. They aren?t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I?ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they're often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).

Nox

Nox is a light, silvery taupe with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of pink and copper sparkle. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was somewhat buildable, but it also had a more slippery texture that tended to sheer out when applied and blended out. It stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

Ice Dream

Colour Pop Ice Dream Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) has a transparent base with multi-colored reflective sparkles dominated by flecks of icy blue. The texture felt a little drier, almost flaky, to the touch, though it was thin and didn’t slide around when applied. It had more medium coverage when I applied it to my lid, though it sheered out when blended out. It wore well for 10 hours with slight fallout over time but no creasing.

Colour Pop Left on Thread Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium green with subtle, cool undertones and flecks of teal sparkle. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture felt smooth and thin with a good dry down that I could still manipulate without creating patchiness. It lasted well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. - $71.43 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a ?wetter? feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I?ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I?ve seen from readers, many love them but some don?t like them at all. They aren?t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I?ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they're often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).

Illusional

Colour Pop Illusional Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep, navy blue with strong, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage, though it wasn’t opaque and needed to be layered for greater coverage and more true-to-pan intensity. The texture felt smooth and thin with noticeable slip, and it blended out fairly easily. This shade stayed on nicely for 10 hours on me.

Take Me Higher

Colour Pop Take Me Higher Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep, faded blue with subtle, cool undertones–it almost read as a “warm” blue–with larger, pale gold glittery flecks. The texture felt wet to the touch and smooth, but it had a little more slip than ideal, as it resulted in a more translucent base that was harder to even out on my skin. It wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing but had light fallout.
