First Look: The Tom Ford Beauty Spring 2017 Collection + Two New Launches from Omorovicza


The Tom Ford Spring 2017 Collection.
The recently released *Tom Ford Beauty Spring 2017 Collection is everything one hopes for from a new launch...modern, color-saturated formulas balanced by a lilting sense of dewiness, the exquisite product range guarantees something for everyone.  

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the *Tom Ford Spring 2017 Collection in action as well as a peek at (and chance to win!) the latest from Omorovicza...
Two new Omorovicza launches. 
Before we get into the color collection, I am excited to preview TWO brand new launches from beloved skincare house, Omorovicza.  The *Moor Cream Cleanser (also available at Bergdorf GoodmanBeautylish Neiman Marcus) and the *Firming Neck Cream have been formulated for maximum efficacy and are perfect compliments to your current skincare routine. 

The *Moor Cream Cleanser (also available at Bergdorf GoodmanBeautylish Neiman Marcus) is a rich and creamy formula, infused with the detoxifying properties of Hungarian Moor Mud; the result is shockingly clean and balanced skin without the tight feeling commonly associated with mud-enriched skincare. 

IngredientsAqua (Hungarian Thermal Water), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Silt (Hungarian Mud), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Stearic Acid, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Saccharomyces Ferment Extract, Zinc Oxide, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Tocopherol, Parfum (Fragrance), Eucalyptus Leaf Oil, Mentha Piperita(Peppermint) Oil, Phospholipids, Xanthan Gum

Luxurious on every level, the *Firming Neck Cream delivers a nourishing blend of white truffle enzymes, two types of hyaluronic acid and leontopodic acid to firm, lift and dramatically hydrate the delicate neck and décolleté zones with each application.  Despite being an avid sunscreen user, I've begun to notice that my neck and chest have still sustained more environmental damage than I would prefer and I am now vigilant about doing what I can to combat the fine lines and slack skin.  

IngredientsAqua (Hungarian Thermal Water), Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Butyrospermum Parkii(Shea Butter), Octyldodecanol, Cetearyl Ethylhexanoate, Squalane, Stearyl Heptanoate, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cera Alba(Beeswax), Saccharomyces Ferment Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, Xanthan Gum, Prunus Domestica Seed Extract, Tocopherol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Sesamum Indicum Seed Extract, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Tuber Magnatum Extract, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Parfum (Fragrance), Leontopodium Alpinum Callus Culture Extract, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Phospholipids

In honor of this innovative product's launch, I am excited to partner with Omorovicza to offer Beauty Professor readers the exclusive chance to win their own jar of the *Firming Neck Cream! Simply leave a comment in the comments section describing why you'd like to try a jar--along with an email address that you regularly check (for notification purposes)--and four winners will be selected at random and contacted via email on Thursday 2/9/17 at 11 AM PST.  

More on both products forthcoming! 

The Omorovicza Firming Neck Cream.
Tom Ford *Shade & Illuminate Cheeks.
Onto the *Tom Ford Beauty Spring 2017 Collection; up first is the *Shade & Illuminate Cheeks (also currently available at BeautylishBloomingdalesCos Bar and Tom Ford).  Designed to impart a sheer, natural flush of color to cheeks while adding a luminous gleam to the high points of the face, this gorgeous duo comes in two color combinations suited to a spectrum of skin tones:
  • Scintillate: A peachy pink blush and pale champagne highlighter, excellent for fair to light skin tones. 
  • Sublimate: A berry syrup blush and rose gold highlighter, apropos for medium to dark skin tones.
As one who tends to have an accidentally heavy hand when applying blush (who is with me?), the sheer texture of the Shade & Illuminate Cheeks duos is refreshingly blendable for a lit from within look that truly translates as healthy and buoyant skin. Both shades work with my medium skin tone, layering beautifully over foundation, powders and even each other.

In terms of lasting powder, I easily get 4-5 hours of touch up free performance; much like the original version of Shade and Illuminate, the creams feel suspended on the skin rather than sinking into fine lines and pores, extending the potential for flawless wear.

To summarize, those who love cream blush formulas and an incandescent yet natural cheek look will find great satisfaction with the *Shade & Illuminate Cheeks.

From L-R: Scintillate and Sublimate.

What it is: Shade & Illuminate Cheeks brings the play of light and dark, integral to Tom Ford's face philosophy, to color contouring.
What it does: This duet of highlighting and shading creams is designed to make dimensional color contrasting of cheeks remarkably simple. The pearlescent, highlighting shade brightens and draws light to skin to amplify cheekbones, and the vibrant blush tone deepens and defines for the perfect flush of color. Each color combination is designed to complement every skin tone. It's super sheer, blends easily onto skin and is designed to work with exterior light to highlight and shadow naturally.

Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Lips. 
The second dimension of the *Tom Ford Beauty Spring 2017 Collection is the insanely beautiful, limited-edition *Shade & Illuminate Lips (also available at  BeautylishCos Bar, Blue Mercury and Tom Ford).  

These clever compacts feature two contrasting yet coordinating shades of lip color--one light and one much darker--with exceptional color payoff and a weightless, velvety finish that instantly makes lips look full and supple.  Silkier and more luminous than than a traditional matte finish yet more refined than a cream, this bewitching formula feels wildly smooth on the lips and blends like a dream.  The mirrored compact also includes a brilliant dual-ended applicator with a sponge on one end and a brush on the other.  This tool enables an adept mixing of shades and precise application for lips that look polished and modern.

I couldn't be happier with the texture, pigmentation and overall performance of the *Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Lips; they fulfill all necessary criteria for a lip color connoisseur and the spectrum of shade offerings further fortifies their value. The fact that the hues can be worn separately or mixed together for unique shades and complex, multidimensional lips makes these limited edition gems well worth the pursuit!

The Shade & Illuminate Lips lineup.
There are six shades in the *Shade & Illuminate Lips lineup:
  • Automatic: Very light nude beige (akin to TF Nude Vanille but perhaps even lighter) and medium nude brown. 
  • Impulse: Warm pinky nude (so gorgeous) and deep rosy beige. **Worn in the images at the end of this post
  • Possession: Bright candy pink and bold hot fuchsia.
  • Tantalize: Creamy pale peach and vibrant coral red. **Worn in the images at the end of this post
  • Nikita: Lush cherry red and dramatic wine. 
  • Saboteur: Electric violet purple and intense aubergine. **Worn in the images at the end of this post

What it is: Shade & Illuminate Lips bring the play of light and dark, integral to Tom Ford's face philosophy, to color contouring.

What it does: Two shades (one dark and one light) complement for shaping lips with high pigmentation in a velvet matte finish. Using the dual-ended applicator, featuring a sponge on one end and a lip brush on the other, both shades can be applied to create a subtle to dramatic ombré effect. The powder-gelèe formula features emollient oils and a blend of polymers that provide rich color release and adherence. Each color combination is designed to complement every skin tone.

All six shades options.

The following images reflect the *Tom Ford Beauty Spring 2017 Collection in action along with:
  • *Tom Ford Waterproof Foundation Concealer in Natural (reviewed HERE): This foundation offers a brilliant fusion of coverage and lasting power while boasting a natural skin finish.  Natural is a befitting match for me for most of the year. 
  • By Terry Sun Designer Palette #2 (reviewed HERE) to lightly contour.  I have covered this palette time and again in previous stories...it's true brown tones make contouring a breeze and mixing the shades creates a customized flush that lasts the day.  I'll be picking up yet another back up soon.
  • *Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Cheeks (Scintillate in the first three images, Sublimate in the last six): I used a blending brush to stipple the blush shade along the apples of my cheeks and added the creamy illuminator to the high points of my face.  I love how Sublimate can be layered on top of Scintillate for additional dimension without skin looking muddy or overly made up. 
  • Tom Ford Naked Bronze (reviewed HERE) on the eyes with a healthy dose of *IT Cosmetics  Superhero Mascara (reviewed HERE).  Both products offer major impact with minimal effort; I love the glowing warmth of Naked Bronze all over the lid and along the lower lash line and two coats of Superhero Mascara offers immense length and volume.
  • *Tom Ford Fiber Brow Gel in Taupe (reviewed HERE): This brow formula is my absolute favorite as of late...so much so that I ordered a replacement for my almost empty tube.
  • *Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Lips in Impulse, Tantalize and Saboteur.
  • Blocked Sherpa Bomber Jacket: This ultra comfortable topper is the perfect combination of colors (nude, black and navy) and the classic cut ensures it can be dressed up or down with ease.  It's a must for the cool mornings of spring. 
  • Wandertrail Dolman Top: The dramatic sleeves are tempered by a resplendent green tone and the ultra soft jersey knit looks just as good with denim as it does with a fitted skirt. 
  • Levis: Timeless and true to size with a modern fit, I wear this particular pair constantly.

  35. Hi! I would love to try the neck cream from Omorovicza because I suffer from a weird creepy neck texture ever since I was a kid. I have tried many creams (both prescription and non prescription) only to be disappointed. I take care of my neck like my face, wash it twice a day, apply serums, creams and sunscreen. I have loved Omorovicza bb cream, cleanser and mask for my face and I am really curious to see how their neck cream is. I am best reached at theimaginariumofmakeup@gmail.com

  36. I would love to try it because I will be 55 and my neck is one of my biggest concerns right now. Lol. I hope it is me!!! judileeangel@yahoo.com
