Whilst most designers are filling their makeup bags with dark, berry toned lipsticks, this winter, Tom Ford has gone in completely the opposite direction with his stunning Soleil collection. It’s a collection which is designed to be enjoyed in glamorous, sunny locations and is filled with stunning bronzes and pinks. Considering these are my favourite shades when it comes to makeup, I honestly couldn’t be happier.
Packaged in the brand’s signature white and gold casing, this is a lipstick which couldn’t look better if it tried! I’m a long-term fan of Tom Ford’s lipsticks, so getting to try out the new Soleil Lip Foil was such a thrill! Rather than aiming to give lips a slick of vibrant colour, the Lip Foils are meant to give lips a Micro Foil finish, and although it sounds pretty terrifying, the result is actually a subtle metallic sheen which makes frosted lipsticks feel fresh and new.
There are six shades to choose from in the Lip Foil range, but mine, Creme Conque, is by far my favourite. It’s a perfect neutral nude shade which looks as good with a natural everyday look as it does with a dramatic smoky eye. As you would expect from Tom Ford, the formula feels super comfortable and lightweight to apply, and there is serious colour payoff, even from a single swipe.
I’ve been applying the lipstick straight from the bullet, and I just love the flattering, metallic finish. It makes lips look plumper and fuller, and it’s incredibly comfortable to wear. The only (tiny) drawback is that it lasts about an hour before I need to reapply, but considering the tube is so beautiful, I really don’t mind whipping it out at every opportunity!
