Summer has finally come to its expiration date. However, this is always an odd "in-between" phase for me because, technically, it's Fall, but it's still too bright, too green, too hot and too humid (temperatures in the low to mid 80's with humidity levels around 65-94%, basically, still Summer) to don anything Autumnal just yet.
As lovely as many of 2015's Summer Collections were, I put most of the collections I purchased aside, feeling they would be better suited for this in-between phase than worn during their intended scorching season. Actually, I do that with many seasonal collections; I buy them, separate them, and then categorize them by which ever season, I feel, they inspire me the most. Does anyone else do this, or am I alone on this one"
With the exception of some pieces, Tom Ford's 2015 Soleil Summer (along with Spring) Collection is one of those that felt more Fall than Summer...yes, I see where they were going, but no.
I've broken the Soleil Collection in half, and here is the first installment.
01 Naked Bronze.
02 Black Oyster.
03 Golden Peach.
04 Midnight Sea.
I love a duo packaged product. So, I was really interested in the two-tired Cream and Power Eye Color products. As nifty as the packaging is, and as beautiful as these double-decker eyeshadows are (bottom half: a metallic cream and the top: a sparkling, glitter powder), I do have one bone to pick with them. You see, I purchased all four as soon as they were released, and it wasn't until I got them that I noticed a similarity in shades to previous TF Creme Color For Eyes I own. It wasn't until I called the TF beauty counter, and confirmed that I did indeed own three of the four creme shadows in the duos...shame on me. Both Spice (the older sister) and Pink Haze (the Jane Brandy of the bunch), are in perfect condition, but what gets me the most is this inclusion of the Spring 2015 Creme shadow. It's too soon to repromote a shade that was just released ...
