Tom Ford A/W Haul

I'm not really one to jump onto the limited edition collections, I just think that if I love it and want to repurchase it, then I will be disappointed and more than likely cry like a stroppy 5 year old. However, when the visuals were released for the Tom Ford A/W 2014 collection I majorly swooned. It just looked stunning, as does everything else that they do! My love for their products is growing stronger by the day, it seems that I can't walk into Selfridges without coming out with a bit of TF. Sarah and I were lucky enough to be invited to have a mini makeover at their counter during the stores Perfecting Beauty Event, which took place on Thursday. The gorgeous and extremely talented makeup artist Sian talked us through the new releases while applying them to our eagerly awaiting faces. It was love at first sight, I of course had to pick up a couple items. I'm weak. I have no willpower. Don't judge me! I chose the eyeshadow quad in Nude Dip and the Contouring Cheek Duo in Soft Core. 

Nude Dip is absolute perfection. For a palette of just 4 shades, it's actually quite versatile. I thought that I might miss there being a matte shade, but the quality and beauty of this product more than makes up for it. The finish of these shadows is like nothing that I've tried before, they are so smooth and shimmery.   I can't wait to experiment with different colour combinations and I'm sure you will be seeing me use this in an upcoming post. Being the shallow packaging lover that I am, I also love that it has the TF imprinted. 

Soft Core, you have absolutely stolen my heart. I actually got to have a sneak peek of this ahead of it's release thanks to a beauty bloggers event that I attended at Selfridges the previous week. There are two shades of the cheek duos but this one caught my eye straight away. I think that the blusher is so autumnal and will look gorgeous on my pale skin. The other is more of a warm shade, which for me isn't the kinda look I go for in autumn/winter. Give me rosy cheeks and a vampy lip any day over looking sun-kissed. The blusher is extremely pigmented and buttery, which makes it a dream to apply and blend. I cannot rave about the highlighter enough, I simply don't do glitter on my cheeks so when I saw that this gave a glowing from within effect, I knew that it had to be mine. 

I think the only thing missing was a darker lipstick, the colours in the collection were lovely but I already have similar colours from them. 

What has been your favourite release of the A/W collections so far?
