Monday Bits & Bobs: Tom Ford Noir Collection Swatches + Some On-Location Style Notes


Above: Style Note #1...On the cusp of heading in...wearing a Paige Denim Trudy blouse, Frame cutoffs and All Saints Dorica sandals (my current obsession and also on sale right now!).
I hope your week is off to a lovely start, dear readers.  We are still in the midst of travel!  Over the weekend, we left Miami (discussed HERE) and headed to the Boca Raton Resort; en route, we passed The Bal Harbor Shops and, consequently, embraced a brief detour.  

After picking up a pair of Frame denim at Intermix (killer sale) and a pair of waterproof Nike high tops for an upcoming trip, we entered the home-away-from-home otherwise known as Neiman Marcus for a bit of beauty perusal.  Much to my delight, the new Tom Ford Noir Collection had just arrived but an hour before, and I engaged in a hasty swatching session to show you its dark beauty.

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the collection in action as well as the Bottom Line...

Above: The Tom Ford Noir Collection.
The Noir Collection consists of seven products:
  1. Nail Lacquer in Black Out...a deep, glossy black with fine silver shimmer.
  2. Lip Color in First Time (also reviewed HERE)...this is one of my favorite shades in the Tom Ford line.  The LE black textured casing makes this a collectors item, indeed.
  3. Waterproof Extreme Mascara...I am loving the lush, pigmented and long lasting formula for my lashes...more on this soon.
  4. Lash Tips Mascara-Pure Colbalt...designed to add a pop of color to the ends of lashes, this is a creative take on a traditional eye look.
  5. Lash Tips Mascara-Burnished Gold...I saw this shade in action at the counter...it brightens the face and adds an element of festivity.  Perfect for the holidays!
  6. Eye Defining Pencil in Navy Black...a rich indigo blue, this is a fresh way to define the eyes.
  7. Cream and Powder Eye Color in Night Sky...the blue-toned charcoal shades are a novel take on the classic smoky eye and will flatter a spectrum of skin tones.

Bottom Line:  I hope you enjoyed this swatch and style-infused post and can't wait to hear what you pick up from the Tom Ford Noir Collection...do tell!

I am working on responding to all comments and email this week; travel has definitely thrown off my normal routine and I am doing my best to balance everything while securing a bit of down time as well...thanks, as always, for your patience and support.

Good things ahead...xx,

  3. I love that you plan your vacations to be close to the Mother Ship :)
    I am all about smoky eyes these days, well at least all about procuring smoky eyes, not like I wear them every day. And a navy smoky eye! Heaven. Looking forward to seeing Charlotte's new smoky eye duos, Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise. Gonna be a smoky winter. Thanks for all the groovy swatches.
    You look fabulous. Hope you are having a great anniversary trip.

  4. Used to live down there. Haven't been to that NM in years. Presume you saw our small Boca NM. Love the TF Moodlight. It's fantastic, no doubt. These all look lovely on but you had some more vivid lippies on a few weeks ago that really rocked. Not your comfort zone, but very flattering. Haven't been to the Space NK in Bloomies in Boca in a while, so must peruse!. Boca Resort is lovely. Great trip it looks like!
