Tom Ford cosmetics are the epitome of luxury in the beauty world; everything from the formulas, packaging and price-tag is premium. Thanks to being so raved about (I don't think I've seen one, negative review yet), chances are you've been tempted to pick up absolutely everything on display at the stunning beauty counters. For the majority, though, making a Tom Ford purchase isn't something you do on a whim, as spontaneously splurging so much is a risk when one lipstick costs close to £40. After a lots of careful consideration, swatching up a storm and showing bucket loads of self-control, I recently came home with two treats - the Love Lust Cheek Colour and the Indian Rose Lip Colour.

Being one of the most opulent beauty lines out there, Tom Ford products verge on being extortionate and, unsurprisingly, everything about the brand screams ultimate luxe. Let's face it, we all love products that make us feel extra special and that little more glam than usual, whenever we whip them out for a quick touch up. Yes, the embossed products and gold accents help to make the packaging look ultra chic, but fortunately, it's not a case of style over substance with Tom Ford. These products certainly live up to the hype and perform exceptionally well and I have to say that now I've dipped my toes into the Tom Ford waters, I don't think it'll be long before I'm showing you some more additions to my collection.

Tom Ford 01 Love Lust Cheek Colour Swatch

Not only is 01 Love Lust the most perfect shade of coral pink blush that I could imagine, being saturated with a fine, golden shimmer, but the texture is just divine. So velvety, the powder feels as smooth as a cream formula and blends effortlessly on to the apple of the cheek. This particular shade gives the cheek quite a large amount of sheen, almost acting as a blush and highlight in one and I love how it instantly brightens up the face. As the pigmentation is so strong, you need to go lightly with your brush and be sure to layer to build the colour, rather than apply too much all at once and find it a struggle to tone down. The sleek packaging is, of course, so sophisticated, but isn't as weighted as I expected. It can also end up covered in fingerprints, due to the glossy finish of the compact, which spoils it a bit. Although it may not feel quite as fancy, that does make it a better option for travelling with. £46 is a guilt-inducing price, but once you see and the feel the quality of these powders, it's so hard to resist picking one up!

Tom Ford 04 Indian Rose Lip Color Swatch

Tom Ford Lipsticks are just perfect in every possible way and 
04 Indian Rose, a deep, rosy-brown nude has stolen my heartThis shade does have a slight bit of silver shimmer running through it, but that doesn't translate on to the lips at all. I've heard that this is the best selling shade of the relaunched Tom Ford lipstick collection and I can definitely see why! Texture wise, the creamy formula just melts onto the lips, but not to the point that the colour slips and slides everywhere. Part of the original lip colour line-up, Indian Rose offers a moisturising, satin finish, which isn't glossy or sticky and it doesn't start to crack or cake at the edges when you layer it up. Thanks to the opaque pigmentation you get from just one slick of the lipstick, the colour lasts really well (five hours before needing a touch-up in my experience), even without using a lipliner alongside itCosting £36 each, Tom Ford lipsticks are definitely an investment, but a damn good one!
