I hope you all had a good start in the week. Today was not a very productive day for me but hoping that it will get better during the week. It is a short week in Germany though. Are you having bank holiday on Thursday too?
Today I have two more pretties from Tom Ford Summer Collection for you (you can find my other reviews here, here and here). I thought two products from the collection would make a match made in heaven. I am talking about sheer lips in shimmery natural pink with Tom Ford Lip Color Sheer in Rose Soleil and peach gold on eyes with Tom Ford Cream and Powder Duo #03 Golden Peach.

I mentioned about the packaging of Tom Ford Cream and Powder Duos in my previous post. Duos come in a similar packaging to Tom Ford Eye Primers. There is a powder on top and cream product in the bottom. For this limited edition collection, the packaging is in white.
Tom Ford Cream and Powder Duo #03 Golden Peach has a lovely pink/peach cream shade with metallic finish which was previously released separately as Pink Haze two years ago. You can see my original review here. Pink Haze is a beautiful swipe and go shade, especially in summer combined with a good doze of bronzer, it is breathtakingly stunning. Top celestial shade in #03 Golden Peach was rumored to be the same as one of the glitter shades from Tom Ford Quad in Golden Mink. I checked for you (you can see swatches below) and it is indeed true. So theoretically if you have Pink Haze and Golden Mink, you don't need #03 Golden Peach. That said I find it practical to have two of these gorgeous shades in one packaging (Tom Ford addiction anyone?).

The peachy shade in bottom is beautiful combined with the golden shade on top. Together they become more peachy, less pink. The effect is hard to photograph since it is all about how the light reflects on your eye lids.

Below I am wearing the cream all over the lid. I also applied some glitter by tapping it over the cream shadow with my fingers. I recognized if you do that while the shadow is still wet, you get less fall out during the day, probably since the glitter sticks in the base better. I recommend applying each eye separately, such as first left eye cream, then left eye glitter, and move on to the second eye. I also applied MAC Quarry on the outer corner, very lightly so that the simplicity of the peach eye doesn't get spoiled. I need a bit of definition on my crease though, or my eyes may look puffy.

Here are comparison swatches for Pink Haze (from Summer 2013) and the cream part of #03 Golden Peach. You can also see that Golden Mink celestial shade is exactly the same as the top glitter shade of Golden Peach. The following swatch is taken with sun light. You can see how beautiful the layered shade twinkles.

Here are a few more comparisons with Chanel Stylo Eye Shadows #27 Pink Lagoon (reviewed here) and #127 Laurier Rose (reviewed here). Laurier Rose is a little deeper and more pink. On the eyes I by far prefer Tom Ford formula, in terms of application, the look and longevity. Chanel Illusion d'Ombre #817 Envol (reviewed here) looks close in the pan but the formula of Illusion d'Ombre has more transparency, thus it is lighter.

There are four Lip Color Sheers in Tom Ford Soleil Collection, two of which are repromotes, called Sweet Spot and Paradiso. Two of the new colors are Skinny Dip (reviewed here) and Rose Soleil. Rose Soleil is a sheer natural pink with gold/copper shimmer and frost finish. Depending on how the light reflects, it looks like pinky or more coppery on the lips. It is a beautiful sheer lipstick, which is unique to my collection. You see below that one the swatch it looks warmer than on my lips. FOTD below gives a better idea of the color.

Here is the look in context. I think I should have applied more bronzer for this one, but this way you can see how pale my face looks at the moment and how it would work on fairer ladies. I am wearing Tom Ford Cream and Powder Duo #03 Golden Peach on the eyes, Tom Ford Lip Color Sheer in Rose Soleil on the lips and Cream Cheek Color in Pink Sand on the cheeks. I think the products combine beautifully together to give a natural and polished look for a summer day.

Final thoughts: Both Golden Peach and Rose Soleil are lovely products to give an effortless polished look you can wear to professional settings (a little less glitter) and a summer night out (more glitter) alike. If you have Pink Haze cream eye shadow and Golden Mink Quad though, keep in mind that you are getting repromotes.
What is your favorite color on the eyes and lips for summer?
