Tom Ford x Nordstrom White Suede Eye & Lip Set Review & Swatches

 

White Suede (Nordstrom)

Tom Ford Beauty White Suede (Nordstrom) Eye & Lip Set ($88.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains a full-sized eyeshadow quad (which are normally priced at $88 a pop), plus two miniature-sized lipsticks. The inclusion of the lipsticks feels a bit more like a gift with purchase than anything else, though the set is packaged in a larger, fairly sturdy cardboard box and presented with a velvet-lined interior. The two lipsticks were so-so; they were not the highlights of the brand’s range when I reviewed them in their full-sized editions (though Autoerotique did review better the first time around), and they aren’t here. The quad is similar–not particular stellar but for someone who likes sheerer coverage or finds the Tom Ford formula to work particularly well for them, it might still work well, but it’s more in the not-terrible, not-impressive category (and with the level of competition these days, not a good place to be).

White Suede (Nordstrom)

Tom Ford Beauty White Suede (Nordstrom) Eye Color Quad resembles the White Suede Eye Color Quad that was released previously as a Neiman Marcus exclusive palette. It’s strange that they’re name similarly, and while they appear similar at a glance, the Nordstrom variation is much warmer. The last shade–that muted, navy blue–is the closest between the two quads with the original White Suede shade being a bit brighter, cooler, and more pigmented.

White Suede (Nordstrom) #1

White Suede (Nordstrom) #1 is a soft pink with stronger, warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had good color coverage applied dry or wet with wet application yielding a more intense finish. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and had a good amount of binder, which allowed the eyeshadow to apply well without fallout and still retain its pigmentation. It wore well for eight hours with very minimal fallout over time.

White Suede (Nordstrom) #2

White Suede (Nordstrom) #2 is a soft brown with warm, golden undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color payoff with a smooth, thin consistency that applied best with a slightly fluffier brush, which seemed to pick up product more evenly than a thinner, flatter brush would. This shade stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

White Suede (Nordstrom) #3

White Suede (Nordstrom) #3 is a medium, caramel brown with faint, gold shimmer. It had medium pigmentation that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two to three layers. The texture felt smooth and finely-milled to the touch, but it was a bit firmer and thinner., though it wasn’t difficult to work with and blended out easily on my lid. It lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before fading a bit.

White Suede (Nordstrom) #4

White Suede (Nordstrom) #4 is a muted, blackened blue with subtle, cool undertones and a faint, frosted sheen. It had medium pigmentation but had to be layered two or three times to get color and coverage that was true-to-pan. The texture was smooth to the touch, almost a bit emollient, but it was a bit thinner and took more effort to diffuse and soften around the edges. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me before I noticed slight fading.

Autoerotique

Tom Ford Beauty Autoerotique Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a soft, peachy coral with warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat evenly, but it separated along my lip lines noticeably. The texture was creamy, lightweight, and comfortable to apply and to wear, but it was more prone to catching on any imperfections in texture on my lips. It wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time. This shade can be purchased individually as a full-sized Lip Color (so $55) as it was released previously. The version in the set under-performed compared to the full-sized, though.

Formula Overview

$54.00/0.1 oz. – $540.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed have an “ultra-creamy texture” with “smooth application” that will deliver “pure color.” The lipstick tends to have semi-opaque to opaque coverage with a natural to luminous finish with some shades with very fine pearl and others with more metallic shimmer. The consistency is typically creamy, lightweight, and has moderate slip, which makes it comfortable to wear and to apply but is not the most long-lasting lipstick formula. The wear tends to range between four and six hours with some shades performing above and below that range. There’s a vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Paper Doll

Tom Ford Beauty Paper Doll Lip Color is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single pass, which adhered fairly evenly but the texture was less forgiving as it sank a bit into my deeper lip lines and had subtle streaking along the edges of my lips. The consistency was lightly creamy and felt smooth as it glided across my lips fluidly. It wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing over time. This shade was released previously but was limited edition, so it cannot be purchased individually at this time.
