We became huge fans of Tom Ford’s make up line last September at Fashion Week in New York. This September, we were invited to a special event at Neiman’s where we were whisked up to a private room to drink champagne, eat tea sandwiches and chocolate covered strawberries and, oh yes, get some insider tips on how to work magic with some of their new products.
We watched west coast make up guru, Todd Davidson, apply the Shade and Illuminate Duet to a model’s cheeks and just below her chin. It was intimidatingly dark. Seconds later he used a brush to blend it in and it was like a miracle had happened. We saw all the new products, which included pulverized pearls, and pigment-rich celestials and watched how they were applied. We simply had to try them out ourselves.
Michelle, our go to girl at Neiman’s Tom Ford counter, set us up with two talented make up artists, and minutes later we had a whole new look.
Many of the new Fall products are almost impossible to find, the Nude Dip Quad eyeshadow was sold out before it even arrived in stores and is currently going for triple its price on eBay. Still in stock, for now, are the eyeshadow quads we can’t live without, the brand new concealer, the Ultra Raven curling mascara, the brow pencil with built-in brush and sharpener, and the Eye Defining liquid eyeliner pen. These are some of our favorites and should be snapped up before they too are gone.
TIP: The holiday collection is being released October 6 and should be in stores about two weeks later. Two new cream shadows and eight new matte lipsticks, two of them limited edition will go fast. If you want them, call and pre-order from Michelle as soon as they’re released. We’re still regretting that we didn’t hoard more of the She Wolf limited edition eyeshadow last Fall, when we had the chance.
Snap these potions up while you can!
