Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Lips

If you’ve been watching my channel or reading my blog for a while now, you will know very well about my love of Tom Ford Makeup, in particular the lipsticks. So I was very excited to get my hands on a few shades of their latest launch, Shade & Illuminate Lips.

It’s a generous sized lip palette with two complimentary shades that allow you to easily create the ombre lip trend, and add shape and definition to your lips. There are six palettes to choose from, ranging from classic nudes all the way to vibrant pinks and blood reds.

My two favourite palettes out of the collection include ‘Saboteur’ (top photo) a beautiful deep pink purple tone and ‘Possession’ shown just above, a beautiful bright bold pink thats going to be my perfect statement summer shade.

The texture of these is best described as a creme and a satin. The best thing about these beautiful palettes is the flexibility to create a mix of statement lip looks. You could wear each shade alone for a bold intense look, or you can use the darker shade to contour the lips and the brighter shade to highlight in the centre of the lips. You can really experiment with the intensity and the colours they offer are all gorgeous.

For me I love the idea that when I travel I have two lipsticks in one palette but ultimately 3-4 lip looks I can create by mixing and changing the colours up. What do you think? Will you be trying out this product?
