Tom Ford Beauty Soleil Collection 2015 Cream Cheek Colour Pink Sand

You probably notice by now that my posts are erratic. I must apologise for that, lately I feel like I'm getting kicked by life in the butt. I need time to get my life in order and get my mojo back. I will still post but not as regularly as I wish to.

Anyway I have really come to the point where enough is almost enough. I'm not really getting excited about new releases and I don't really see the need to get more makeup. I am being very selective of what I buy and will probably be like this for quite some time. 

I however did break my ban for Tom Ford. The images of the cream and powder shadows called to me. The Eye and Cheek Compact called to me too (I missed out on last year's and have kicked myself ever since). I have to admit I splurged on this collection. 

I pre ordered my items from Neiman Marcus. I regretted not getting Midnight Sea so when I heard that it was in the Singapore counter I made a very rare trip to Orchard Road for some retail therapy.

I did not intend to get Pink Sand but the counter swatches did me it. It was emollient and blended easily on my skin. The pink gold shade was too irresistible. It was a very satisfying shopping trip for me. Heh!

Without further ado, let's take a look at Pink Sand.




The creamy white and gold casing calls to me. Its sleek and oh so luxurious. It isn't easy for me to open this though but I don't mind one bit.







I would say that Pink Sand would look better on lighter to medium skin tones because it will show up better. On me, it is a light glowy golden pink flush. It lasts about 3 to 4 hours. I applied it under and over powder with no problem at all. It blends well and does not appear patchy at all. I would think it is more suited for dry to normal skin as it is more emollient in texture.It is a limited edition piece so get it quick while it is still available. $87 is too high a price to pay for a cream blush, I wasn't thinking honestly when I bought this.I was in a "get it now" mode where brain function is minimal.

SGD $87
USD $65

Here is my look for my shopping trip. I thought it would be fitting to wear a mostly Tom Ford look to go buy more Tom Ford. Heh.

I'm loving my new white dress with the embellished front. Trying darn hard not to squint when the sun is right in my eyes.

  1. I hope life starts treating you better soon.
    I am having to be selective too at the moment due to money contraints and don't think I can get the TF I was planning too, though I have to agree that I don't really need anymore makeup, think I just like having new things :) I think that blush looks really pretty on you.

    1. Thank you Clare. I have kinda lost interest in all the new items coming out, I'm going to be really selective from now on.

  2. I super love what you did with your eye makeup. Love the combination of Tom Ford Cream Eye Colour in Escapade and Three Flash Performance Eyeliner pencil in 06. This is the kind of look that I usually prefer.

    1. Thank you Ana B, I tried this a couple of times and I love how it looks too. The Three Flash Performance Eyeliners are a great substitute for eye shadows. What kind of products do you use on your lids and how do you wear them? :)

  3. Hey Jacqueline, I looove everything about the look! That dress looks stunning on you! I like how the blush looks, but 3-4 hours are on the shorter side and I don't like to touch up on my blush. I will probably continue to marvel and it but skip :)

    Sorry to hear life has kicked you in the butt! I hope it'll get better soon!

    1. Hey Sunny, thanks a lot. Things are slowly getting better, slowly but surely. We all have our ups and downs. I super love the dress too, note to self find and excuse to wear it often. I stopped bothering to touch up my makeup except for lipstick. Just too busy at work.

  4. There's nothing quite like some retail therapy to kick butts right?! I'm like you too... a little tired, but this collection is simply irresistible! I'm still so in love... it makes me want to change up my makeup 3-4 times a day just so i can use them all! Anyway, i hope things get better for you soon!

    1. Exactly Linda, nothing like a little something to pamper myself. :) I'm changing my makeup looks every day so I can try everything. Thanks dear, things can only get better.

  5. Oh don't worry about life kicking you in the butt! That happens all the time! Just post whenever you can! Everyone will still appreciate whatever content you put out! That cream blush is gorgeous! I've never been a user of cream blush as powder blush is just too easy for me to use! I would love to get a lipstick or a powder blush from them this year!

    1. Thank you Sharlynn, I must tell you how happy I am whenever I get a comment from you. You know what you should try a cream blush one day, the right one just melds with your skin and looks like natural blush. Anyway things are picking up for me, whew.
