Tom Ford Toasted Sugar 02 Nail Polish Review …. And Must See Dupe!

Tom Ford Toasted Sugar Nail Polish Nail Lacquer Review and Dupe Swatch

Nothing screams luxury quite like Tom Ford.  Not only is he the king of lipstick but in my eyes he can wear the crown for nail polish too!  Nude colours have long been my ‘thing’ and when I saw the shade Toasted Sugar last year my heart quite literally skipped a beat.  The perfect natural canvas shade with just the right amount of colour to prevent it being unflattering.

Before I go into more detail about the formula, I must touch upon how beautiful the packaging is.  Well, it is Tom Ford, we would expect nothing less would we?! The bottle is square with gold detailing and the shape of the bottle makes the polish easy to hold when applying the colour to the nail.

The brush applicator is nice and long, and the brush itself is long and thin.  The polish is a nice consistency and glides onto the nails effortlessly.

The manicure pictured above is achieved using two coats of Tom Ford Toasted Sugar finished with a top coat.

I really can’t fault this nail polish, however it is rather pricey at £27.00.  The good news is that I have found a colour that is an excellent dupe and priced at only £4.99. Tanya Burr Peaches & Cream is perfect for those who love this particular shade!

I have reviewed the Tanya Burr Peaches & Cream polish in more detail here.  But as you can see, the colours are very similar.  Obviously there is no doubt that the Tom Ford colour is much better quality and lasts over a week without chipping.  This for me, is priceless and makes the price tag worth paying. However as you can see, if it is the colour you are after then perhaps the Tanya Burr polish may be worth looking out for!

I really hope you find this useful! Do you agree with me that this polish is a good dupe? I would love to hear from you!

Tom Ford Lip Colour Cherry Lush 10 – Review | Lipstick Monday

Tom Ford Cherry Lush 10 Lipstick Review Swatch

What better way to kick off Lipstick Monday than with Cherry Lush.  I have long coveted a Tom Ford lipstick and my dream became a reality last month.  It is every bit as luxurious as I hoped it would be and is the perfect lipstick to wear on a Monday.  I had an extra little spring in my step this morning on my walk into work knowing that I was wearing the lipstick I had dreamt about for so long.

Tom Ford certainly knows a good lipstick! He understands that there really is no better accessary than a perfect lip.  Our lips are the focus of our face and when done well have the ability to define our whole look.

Tom Ford Cherry Lush 10 Lipstick Review

Cherry Lush is a beautiful blue based red shade with a pretty pink hue.  It has a very subtle shimmer that leads to a lovely sheen finish. It looks lovely against my pale skin tone and whilst it is a ‘look at me’ shade it is also extremely wearable and flattering.

I am able to get a lovely full coverage using just a couple of swipes of the lipstick – but of course using a lip brush gives a more precise finish.  The lipstick lasts a  good 2-3 hours before needing to be reapplied. The lipstick itself has a texture like no other I have ever tried, it has a buttery finish and almost melts into my lips.

The lipstick packaging is absolutely beautiful. It is luxuriously weighty with gold accents. A real joy to use and never fails to put a smile on my face when I look at it, and this after all is a Monday must have!
