Tom Ford - Soleil Summer Collection 2016

Recently I have become a bit of a beauty fanatic and buying new pieces of makeup and beauty products has now turned into one of my favourite past times (don't worry I am still obsessed with clothes shoes and handbags haha).  Being a bit of a newbie to this new found passion of mine I am always on the look out for new and exciting products to try.......naturally when I found out Tom Ford was releasing a new limited addition makeup and beauty collection for the summer I was on it straight away!!!  My name was on that coveted waiting list and the long wait began.

The ladies on the Tom Ford counter in the Manchester Exchange Square Selfridges are always so lovely and helpful, and I was lucky enough to get a little sneak preview of the collections look book before it came out so I knew exactly what I wanted to order and what it would be like.  I chose three products from the collection, the "Afternooner" Contouring Compact, the Ultra-Rich Lip Colour Lipstick in shade "Revolve Around me" and the "Soleil Blanc" Shimmering Body Oil.  Now the whole collection is absolutely gorgeous and couldn't be more perfect for the summer......however I would say these have to be my favourites out of all the collection, with my very top pick being the Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil.....honestly it is like the most chic, glamorous and luxurious holiday in a bottle!!! ❤︎❤︎❤︎

The release date of the collection was scheduled for the 2nd of May and I was fortunate enough to be able to collect mine a day early (I actually couldn't have been more excited, this was what I had been waiting for haha).  When I went to go and pick up my new purchases I managed to hold in my excitement at the Tom Ford counter as I was handed one of their luxurious signature black and gold bags with all my new products in.  I couldn't wait to get them home and try them out!!!    

When I finally got them home and removed the tissue paper I was amazed with how beautifully they had been wrapped for me.....they had been wrapped in yet more tissue paper and placed into a gorgeous gift box with the same luxurious signature look as their carrier bags and finished with a ribbon tied in a bow around the box (I absolutely love wrapping and packaging especially when it looks like this ❤︎).  At the bottom of the bag there was a number of perfume samples which the sales assistant had placed in and had remembered me saying I liked (I felt very special by this point hehe), I still haven't had chance to try these out yet, but I can not wait as they are some of my favourites along with some I have never tried before.

The "Soleil Summer Collection" is a limited edition collection and comes in the Ivory and gold packaging, which looks every bit as glamorous and chic as the brands distinguished heritage.  I'm going to start with the "Soleil Blanc - Shimmering Body Oil" as this is my top pick...... as I said earlier it is like a holiday in a bottle with essences of white florals, amber, bergamot and pistachio.  It has a soft floral, sensual fragrance to it and you can really pick up on the amber and bergamot, which are two of my absolute favourite essences.  While the oil helps to hydrate your skin the gold flacks illuminate it, leaving your skin looking and feeling amazing!!!  This will definitely be coming with me to Greece this summer, and this is why it is my top pick ❤︎...........

My second pick was the "Afternooner - Contouring Compact"...... I just love trying out contouring palettes, so when I found out one was going to be included in the collection I had to have it!  This is the first face palette Tom Ford has launchd and not only does it look chic and stylish, but the colours are perfect for the summer and giving you that summer glow.  There are three sections, a highlighter, a blush and bronzer; Each can be used on their own or together to create a natural sun-skissed, contoured glow.  This certainly ranks high on my summer essentials list and I just cant get over how flush and rich the colours are, definitely a must have..........

Finally but by no means at all least is the "Revolve Around Me - Ultra-Rich Lip Colour Lipstick"...... this has to be one of the most gorgeous nude lipstick and my absolute favourite at the moment.  Nude is my signature lip colour and I have so many, but this has to be the winner for me this summer.  With it's warm pinky beige undertone it compliments and warms your skin tone, enhancing your summer sun-kissed look.  The "Ultra-Rich Lip Colours" give a great coverage and provide the same level of moisture as a lip balm, perfect for the summer when the sun can dry out your lips.  They also come in six different shades, ranging from vivid pinks and corals to dusky purple and warm, velvety brown, there is literally a colour there for everyone.......... 

I hope you loved this post as much as I loved writing it ❤︎ I have put links below to all the products mentioned for anybody who would like to buy them or check out the rest of the collection XxX
