Tom Ford launched a new collection featuring six Shade & Illuminate Lips ($60 for .12 oz.) and two cheeks ($80 for .49 oz.). When I first saw the pictures of the Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Lips I thought they were eyeshadow duos but once I discovered they're lipstick duos I actually liked the looks of these, and I was very intrigued. I found the Shade & Illuminate Cheeks similar (color wise) to an earlier TF collection which contained two powder blush and highlighter duos Softcore and Stroked. I purchased three out of the six lips duos, and I decided to pass on the cheek duos. Keep reading to find out which shades I've bought and swatches of all six lips and two cheeks Shade and Illuminate duos! Review here

I love how there's an option for everyone here in this collection it will cater to nude lipstick lovers as well as bold and bright lipstick lovers. These lip palettes come with a dual mini brush a sponge applicator and a well-functioning lip brush. I noticed a few different finishes here it's a mix of velvety matte, satin and creamy finish. The texture of these lipsticks are amazing it felt very silky and soft also each, and every one of them are highly pigmented. I love how you can create an ombre effect with these duos if you saw the campaign shot of the model wearing what I believe is Saboteur it looked absolutely stunning!

All though I like Tom Ford cream products I had to pass on these two reason being they're not as pigmented as I expected them to be. I have a hard time working with cream blushes it seems to fade away rather quickly on my oily combination skin. The texture felt very light and creamy, and I can see this giving you a youthful glow, but I'm not sure about the longevity about this one. 


For me, I couldn't pass on the lip palettes, and I'm glad I didn't they're really worth looking into. The Cheek duos not so much. As I mentioned before I purchased three shades Automatic, Impulse and Tantalize which I will do a detailed review on shortly Review here. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoyed this quick sneak peek. What are your thoughts on the new TF Beauty Spring 2017 collection? Have you checked them out yet?

    1. None of the duos are completely matte they're a mix of two different finishes. As you can see on the swatch pic one shade is satiny and the other one is creamy velvety matte. Hope this will help :)
