Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick Shade Swatches

And so begins the first in a series of swatches gathered from my bountiful Thanksgiving trip to San Francisco last week...first up, the Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick, thoroughly reviewed HERE

The warm and generous Joachim (a Tom Ford specialist) and the Beauty Professor commiserating together at the Tom Ford counter at Neiman Marcus, Union Square!

I am still extremely  pleased with the medium to full coverage, impeccable satin finish and stalwart lasting power of this foundation...what a treat to discover!  I hope you find these swatches (all taken in the indoor lighting of Neiman Marcus Union Square) useful; please don't hesitate to comment or email me your questions...

Swatches on the horizon...Tom Ford Ultra Shine Glosses, Tom Ford Blushes and Tom Ford Traceless Liquid Foundation!

  1. I'm not normally a fan of stick foundations but I'm liking the shades of this one - and being Tom Ford, I bet it applies like a dream!

  2. Awesome swatches...but I wonder, are those all the darker tones? Other than that, great variety.

    1. Hi Jezz,

      Thanks for your question...because it was dusk outside, all of these shots were taken in indoor light, hence the darkness...I will make sure to add my flash shots, which might give a better depiction of how light they truly are!

  7. Love your blog! Does NM at SC Plaza carry Tom Ford makeup?

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by, Bengaltiger!!

      In response to your question, unfortunately, no! The Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills (on Wilshire) is the only store in the OC/LA area that carries the full line. Nordstrom at SCP does, however, carry the lip color (lipstick only), nail polishes and fragrance!

      Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Joachim is great, isn't he! While getting the wrong colors last year, he helped match me to Fawn for the exchange. I love the color for me. Also, I really like stick foundations for touch ups and travel.

    1. Hello Rola,

      Joachim is fantastic!! I had such a wonderful time with him...he is so warm and extremely knowledgable. That is so cool that, despite our different locations, we've interacted with the same TF specialist...small world indeed! So glad you found a shade that you love...this stick is amazing!

      Have a lovely week...xoxo,

  10. Hi!! Do you know what the closest match is to Lancome photo luminescence in Bisque 1 (N)? I really want to try this product but don't live near a counter so I have to order online. Or is there a way to order samples to see the colors?

    1. Hello JH,

      So sorry but I don't...I haven't used the Lancome Photo Luminescence formula so I don't want to lead you astray. I suggest calling a Tom Ford counter at your closest Neiman Marcus and see if they might be able to send you a samples ; )

      Hope that helps!
