Tom Ford Beauty is barely a decade old, but it has already produced some of the beauty industry’s most sought-after makeup products and perfumes since its inception. As the label arrives in Manila, we explore beyond the tried-and-tested picks and check out what may well be the next big things.

LIP COLOR IN ASHTON (P1,960)


You can expect a lot from someone who’s created 100 shades of lipsticks named after the best boys and girls in his life. From Tom Ford’s famous Lips & Boys collection comes 50 clutch-sized tubes in various shades and finishes enough to drive any girl crazy. While many went for famous Cary on opening day of the newly opened Tom Ford counter at Rustan's Makati, let us introduce you to Ashton, a warm rosy pink lipstick that can make you fall in love as well. If we were to describe Ashton, we’d say he’s reliable and traditional, but you can count on him to be fun and experimental when necessary.

ULTRA-RICH LIP COLOR IN PURPLE NOON (P2,680)


This deep berry glides easily and applies instantly opaque. We love how it matches most skin colors–it looks more plum on cool skin tones and deep red on warm ones. Its deeply hydrating formula keeps our lips plump and healthy looking all day.

LIP CONTOUR DUO (P2,820)


This duo instantly solves the problem of matching the right lipstick and lip liner color. This fabulous stick contains a lip color and shaper, transforming our lip makeup routine immensely. The shaper tool features a superslim tip, making it easy to draw a fuller lip–it’s almost magical how it makes our lips look naturally even–and the color is creamy and intense for the ideal application.

SKIN ILLUMINATOR IN FIRE LUST (P2,600)


We apply this above our cheekbones, on our nose line, and above our eyebrows to achieve touches of glow on our skin–the season’s definition of healthy and hydrated skin. What we love about this is how it does away with unnatural shimmer or glitter to make us look lit from within.

ULTIMATE BRONZER (P6,100)


We have to say this supersize palette lives up to its name, providing that dream summer flush without the need to get baked under the sun. While the formulation looks like pressed powder, the application definitely doesn’t feel powdery–evenly blending on the skin and providing the right amount of color and glow that looks natural. What’s more, it also diffuses skin blotches or small spots as we build and blend to beach day perfection.

TOM FORD NOIR POUR FEMME (P9,280 for 100ml; P6,780 for 50ml; P4,170 for 30ml)


While we know how much you love the classic Tom Ford Neroli, let us introduce you to a deeper, stronger floral that can take you to the wee hours of the morning. The Noir Pour Femme is a floral oriental fragrance that’s sensual but sweet, rich but subdued, sophisticated but approachable. It’s our dream masculine scent that’s transformed to a feminine one, with notes such as amber, vanilla, sandalwood, orange flower, jasmine, spice, mandarin, citrus, and ginger, among others.
