Fellow beauty addicts far and wide will already know that if it’s high end you’re after – not to mention luxe packaging and some seriously swoon-worthy products, then Tom Ford is where it’s at. Their new range has recently landed at John Lewis, and so of course, I felt like the luckiest girl in the world when I was asked if I would like to try out a couple of the latest additions to the collection. 

If you’re a regular visitor around these parts, you will know that I have a tendency to spend my lunch hours lingering around the counter in store – constantly swatching and sniffing what’s on offer, and am a particularly big fan of the beautiful lipsticks and nail lacquers in the range  (Ruby Rush and Scarlet Chinois are, without doubt, my favourite classic red pairing).

This time though I opted to  try out some of their eye make up – the much talked about Eye Defining Pen in ‘Deeper’* and one of the incredibly beautiful Eye Colour Quads in ‘Nude Dip’*

If eyeliner is normally your nemesis, then the former is definitely for you as it makes application such a breeze and sticks around so well that it means the usual worries of having to faff around to ensure an even wing and to avoid transfer are made  a thing of the past. This stuff wont budge and is so pigmented – it really is the blackest black. In addition, the fact that your are provided with two liners – one slight shorter and stumpier, the other longer and finer – means that no matter what your eye shape it is easy to achieve the perfect line and create definition by getting right into the lash line/any spots you might otherwise miss. I also really love how gloriously weighty it feels, which, for me, makes it easier to manoeuvre than the vast majority of liners out there. If you’re a big fan of a feline flick then I’d say it’s worth investing in this as despite the hefty price tag, it won’t be easily beaten. 

The Eye Colour Quad itself is, as you would expect – fantastic quality again, with a buttery, super blendable collection of shades ranging from a golden champagne to a deep brown - each with a slight satin finish. Though very pretty, there isn’t anything particularly unique about each shade on its own, but as a collection they work beautifully and the convenience of being able to cart them around in such a stunning little one stop compact makes it worth the price tag for me. There is an incredibly beautiful range of shades within the Quads available. Two of my favourites are Seductive Rose – a mix of lighter pinks, mauves along with a deep sumptuous plum, and Honeymoon – a set of warm toned neutrals including a couple of striking coppery shades and a rich, frosted cranberry.

I feel like sometimes the Tom Ford make up line can be overlooked in favour of their fragrances, which, are without doubt some of the most spectacular on the market. If you really want to treat yourself though and you have the budget, then I would highly recommend checking out the fabulous range of products on offer. There isn’t one that I have tried that I haven’t been thoroughly impressed with so far, and that I haven’t felt like a princess whilst wearing/applying it. Next on my list is the Shade and Illuminate compact – this might be the start of a slight obsession! 

Whether you want to spoil yourself or are just looking for a special gift for the make-up lover in your life, you can find the entire range online here, or alternatively,  pop into your local John Lewis store (just don’t blame me when you return home having spent a small fortune!). 

Are there any of the Tom Ford products that are currently on your wishlist? I’d be interested to know what other ‘must haves’ I might need to invest in!
