Tom Ford Summer, Rose Soleil, Sweet Spot & Paradiso lipsticks- Review, Photos & Swatches

A Tom Ford seasonal release will never be complete without their most popular item, the lipsticks. And this time it’s pristine white packaging as last spring!!

TF Summer Soliel lipsticks

The Soleil summer collection, comes with 4 lipsticks. Two new colours, Skinny Dip and Rose Soleil, and also two repromoted shades, Sweet Spot & Paradiso (both which i’ve had in my stash already).

*Seen here are Rose Soleil and Sweet Spot, two new lipsticks sent by TF for review.

The packaging is as always of supreme quality. The white doesn’t attract fingerprints or discolour easy (I have carried them around in my makeup bag many a time without it getting dirty or gunky) and is sturdy and well made. I also like that these lipsticks have a nice weight to them, suggestive of it’s luxury price point.

Rose Soleil is a warm, bronze toned rose with very fine golden shimmer. When swatched this had sheer payoff and high sheen, like a gloss in lipstick form. On the lips it looks less sheer and leaves a better deposit of colour, however never quite meeting the medium coverage mark.

I found the shimmer in this quite flattering and as someone who strictly prefer matte and cream finishes, that’s saying a lot. The wear of this is better than most sheer lipsticks and lasted well into 2 to 3 hours while wearing off evenly. Overall I feel it’s quite a unique colour and was my favourite of the lipsticks released.

Sweet Spot is a light peach with a high sheen finish. I love how this melts into the lips instantly adding warmth to the complexion. Coverage was medium, and had noticeably more pay off than Rose Soleil. Again wear was around 3- 3.5 hours, all the while keeping lips subtly hydrated.

Paradiso is a warm, bright, medium coral with heavy pink tones. Between the three this was the most buildable with coverage a solid medium. This too wore well with very good staying power. I got a 3 – 3.5 hours without it looking too faded.

Here’s what they look like worn.

Application tips

I like to wear these lipsticks sheer as they were intended, without building up the colour too much. Since this is a very emollient formula, it tends to gather around the inner rim of the lips if there’s excess product sitting around.

Overall thoughts

I find these perfect for day to day wear as the high sheen make them look more youthful in comparison to a full-on opaque lipstick, and is a good option for summer lips where you don’t have to keep touching up regularly as they fade evenly.

The hydrating formula of these are very comforting to lips that are parched by the roaring summer sun and protects them from drying out. A perfect mix to see you through this season.

    1. I guess you expected it to be more longer wearing? I find these wear about 2 hours less compared to the original formula 🙂 Either way they are fab lipsticks to own right!

      1. It was meant to be sheer so I knew the lasting power will not be that long. I guess I expected it to feel much more amazing on the lips then drugstore lipsticks somehow. But who can resist the packaging huh Have a lovely day!xo

  1. Rose Soleil and Skinnydip were my two choices for this summer as well! Love them both equally! I’m not bothered by the staying power or pigmentation at all, since I’m aware they’re sheers in the first place! Lol
    And that glorious packaging is everything! 👌🏼😊
    Lots of xx, Annie | Annie’s Beauty

    1. Ohh great minds think alike! I wonder if Skinny Dip would ever show up on me though since i’m not as fair as you, but i’m looking forward to swatching it at the counter soon 🙂 Hopefully it’s something I can wear!

      1. it does show on my REALLY pigmented lips lovely, as a burnished, golden, bronzy, barely there type of colour…
        well, that’s probably the crappiest description ever! LOL but the colour really deserves a swatch! 😉
