After last years successful release, Tom Ford is back again with his irresistible clutch-sized Boys, and best of all they are here to stay!
I had the pleasure of meeting them in person at a press preview, so I took plenty of photos and swatches to enable you and help you decide which one’s you’d like to take home!
Here’s a look at the glorious 50, sitting pretty in their new home!
This years collection consists of 25 old Boys with an additional 25 new fellas.
In case you missed out the last time, the popular colours are back, so you can grab them without any danger of it selling out 🙂
*Please check out this post for a detailed review on the ones I picked from the first release!
For those of you who did manage to grab your favourites, the 25 new Boys are definitely something to consider. These come in a new pearlescent, metallized finish. Designed to be worn on their own or layered with one another.
Without further delay, hear’s a look at the new collection!
25 new Boys, ranging from golds to nudes, to reds and berries! The selection as always is mind blowing with something for everyone!
Please note that everything swatched here is around 2-3 passes for maximum intensity, just so you see the colours clearly.
I found almost all the new shades contained a certain percentage of shimmer or micro glitter as expected. However since many of you have been inquiring, i’m happy to report that NOT ALL 25 come in that high metallic finish.
Some shades such as Tony, Roberto and Kingston had very little or fine shimmer. Good news for those of you who prefer a more satin finish.
Pigmentation wise, most of these swatched with semi opaque coverage in a single swipe. With an exception of the lighter shades needing more layers. Overall I like the formula of these and feel they are worth the luxury price tag!
My favourites from the new range were mostly pinks and rosy nudes. I liked that they had a beautiful sheen to them and applied smooth and even without any streaks.
Left to right there’s Louis, Austin, Jake & Daniel.
Other than these I also loved, Kingston (Row 1), Drake (Row 2), Egon (Row 4) and Roberto, Theo and Jay from Row 5.
