What a classic lipstick should be. Just gorgeous. The colour, texture, wear, quality, scent. Possibly the best lipstick I've found. Incredibly flattering shade on many skin and hair colourings. Excellent all rounder that I expect I will be re-buying for all of time. I would say this is the most flattering shade of the collection.

Sometimes you hear people say that Tom Ford’s shadows practically blend themselves, and I do find that to be true of Leopard Sun. The colors seem to melt into one another seamlessly, creating a soft sunset look. Emphasis on SUN. It's warm.The first shade, top left, is a yellow gold glitter shade. It's fine glitter, but top coats like this can still scatter a bit. I use Sonia G.'s Builder Two brush with shadows that are hard to grab. In lieu of that, you can tap it on with your finger.The top right shade is a bright sun yellow satin eyeshadow with good pigmentation. It's vivid and lasts well. The bottom left shade is a soft rusty orange that goes on the eyes with a whisper, looking more pastel than it appears in the pan. In some photos it looks burgundy, but it does not appear that way in person. (If you need a burgundy, there is a great one in Charlotte Tilbury's Dolce Vita.) To get that rusty orange to show up true-to-pan, I had to use eye primer and pack it on. It required more effort to build than the yellow satin shade. Without primer, the orange color had a tendency to fade noticeably. With primer it was better, but still faded on me slightly. It doesn't fade unpleasantly; it becomes more of a peach. The fourth and final shade, bottom right, is a nice golden brown that blends effortlessly, but it's lighter than the dark chocolate browns I normally use to deepen my crease. It shows up better and lasts longer when I use eye primer. Sometimes I dip into the reddish brown in Tom Ford's Cocoa Mirage and use it to darken the outer V.One of my favorite things about a Tom Ford quad is the compact. It has a sleek look and feels sturdy. There’s a mirror in the lid and they provide a velvet pouch, which I actually do use if I travel. The pouch protects it from getting scratched by other items in my bag. There are little sponge tip applicators that come with the compact. Normally I prefer my brushes, but I have been known to take my Cocoa Mirage quad with me on the plane, especially if I have an important meeting on the other side of that flight. If I need to touch up my shadow, I can do it easily without needing to also pack makeup brushes in my carry-on.However, because these shadows are so expensive, I expect more from them. In the future I am going to focus my attention on the quads that are in Tom Ford's wet/dry formula, which I find somewhat unique to this line. I already own Nude Dip and Honeymoon, and both are long-lasting on my eyelids. I would eventually like to pick up the new Daydream and Virgin Orchid quads, because they are in the same wet/dry formula. Leopard Sun is not in the wet/dry formula, and that might be partly why I am not doing backflips over it. The quality is fine (for the most part), the colors are pretty, and the shadows blend smoothly. I'm accustomed to wearing primer under most shadows, so I'm willing to do it with these to improve the longevity. However, this little palette doesn’t blow me away – certainly not with this price tag, and certainly not when I compare it to other warm palettes that are on the market right now. If that sounds harsh, keep in mind that you’re paying $88 for only four shadows. If you’re comfortable with this price point, you might consider the Natasha Denona Sunset palette which has gold, yellow, and orange tones for $129. Yes, that’s even more expensive, but with that larger palette, you’re getting fifteen different shadows. Natasha gives you some deeper browns and burgundies that Leopard Sun lacks. Personally I feel that her Sunset palette gives you more variety and better pigmentation overall. Therefore, I would not repurchase Leopard Sun. Nothing against the brand as a whole; I have just had better luck with some of the other products in Tom Ford's line. I probably would repurchase Cocoa Mirage. Cocoa Mirage and Silvered Topaz are two quads I enjoy that are not in the wet/dry formula, yet they worked better for me than Leopard Sun. The shadows in those palettes are consistently true-to-pan, and I have not experienced noticeable fading when wearing them. Unfortunately Silvered Topaz has been discontinued, but Cocoa Mirage is still available.

It took me 3 tries to find my shade in this but when I finally did it was perfection! The nearest sephora that carried this in store was over 40 minutes away and with a job and kids that was not an option for me. They discontinued pale dune which I feel would have been my ideal match so I tried ivory first but it was way too dark, next I ordered linen but that still didn't quite match my NC20 skin tone, so finally I ordered fawn and it was my exact match! Once I found my shade I played around with application and found what worked best for me was to swipe a couple stripes on each cheek, my chin, and my forehead and use a dampened beauty blender to press it into my skin. I go back with an extra swipe or two where needed - under eyes, jaw line, nose and press it in again. Then I use my fingers and press it in lightly using my body heat to really melt it into my skin. Make sure you take the foundation down your neck and blend it well so you don't have a makeup line and press the beauty blender over your ears to really prevent the makeup mask look from happening. I donot set this foundation with powder - I have dry skin and I prefer a dewy or satin look over matte anyday. I do spritz my face all over with the smashbox primer water and it really sets everything. I can easily get 10+ hours out of this foundation with little to no break up or oil mess. I use a tinted moisturizer for daily use and save this for date night, work meetings, or days I want to feel pretty and made up. This is one of the best foundations I have ever tried, it is well worth the price. For reference my skin is dry, very sensitive to scents and chemicals, with redness and some discoloration. I find this foundation works well with peach fuzz not sticking to it or accentuating it at all! Supposedly this is the foundation Tom Ford himself wears! My other products and shades: MAC water weight NC 15 (winter only!) NC20 summer time MAC studio fix NC20 (year round) MAC face and body C1 Mary kay cc cream in very light (the only mary kay product I can use with my sensitive skin!) Bobbi Brown tinted moisturizer in Light tintBobbi Brown foundation stick in Warm ivoryHourglass Illusion in Ivory Laura Geller Quench-n-tint in LightClarins extra firming foundation in Sand 108 (a tad too dark but when blended it works!) Bareminerals original mineral foundation in LightAnastasia Beverly Hills stick foundation in Warm ivory Too face born this way in NudeSmashbox in 1.2 Becca mineral powder foundation in Nude (discontinued) Dermalogica Sheer tint in lightMy skin is very light, tans easily in the sun, yellow undertones. I am concerned with aging skin (I'm 37 years young), dry skin, and I want a natural no makeup look. Matte makeup accentuates my dry patches and peach fuzz so I avoid it at all cost! Hope this helps!

Total perfection from TF! Perfect colour blush. Perfect higlight. Slightly glossy. Everything blends seamlessly. The price is definitely high (especially in Canada) but the product is so impressive.

I dont understand why this product isnso hyped while the kkw gets a bad rap.I bought the KKW highlight and became obsessed with creme contour so splurged on this thinking more money would surely equal a better product, and possiy skin care benifits;not true on the first and uncertain of the latter.Firstly, there is no applicator that comes with it so you need to sweep on with your fingers (bacteria) or have 2 appropriate brushes since the color will transfer into the highlight if you are just using 1 brush.Secondly, the formula for the contour is nice and rich like an emolient, very similar to kkw, and blends easily. The highlight is more like a balm that sits on top of your skin like a vaseline veil, with a very very sublte shimmer. It doesnt go on white, its clear. Then to set it you need to powder which takes away the dewy wet look.Bottomline is save your $$ and buy a cheaper option. The Kkw is way more affordable, easy to apply and you get 4 products in one. I wont buy this again.
