PRODUCT REVIEW: Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick


Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Stick
Price: $110.00
About: yellow based hydrating stick foundation with a creamy consistency. Suitable for normal and drier skin types. Packaged in a metallic case.
An essential tool in Tom Ford’s makeup regimen. Rich in hydrants, this foundation stick’s unique cream formula creates a flawless and smooth finish.  Portable and precise, it achieves versatility of sheer, medium or full coverage, always beautifully natural and undetectable. Or, when used as a concealer, it swiftly diminishes imperfections.
Review: Traceless Foundation Stick has been a ... (gulp!) disappointment. Yes, I understand that this stick foundation with a buildable coverage is designed to hydrate skin but being an oil-based product Traceless Foundation Stick is definitely unsuited to those who have oily skin or suffer from acne. With normal/dry skin myself I expected Traceless Foundation Stick to hydrate my skin, stay smooth and offer a long-lasting performance but it did not. Instead my skin looks oily, greasy, shiny and dare I say dirty after just four hours on the skin and I was not feeling comfortable, glamorous or impressed. Why? If I spend $110 on a luxurious foundation I expect a high-performing product which amazes and bedazzles me. Although Tom Ford is one of few brands on the market offering a wonderful range of shades and yellow-based tones, I am not impressed with this product overall. Sorry Tom Ford - I believe you can do so much better.
