Foundation Files: Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Line

I was really excited to try Tom Ford foundations after I saw @allanface (An amazing artist- check him out on Instagram) use it on his clients. Since I have recently found myself in the middle of a very expensive foundation shopping spree, I decided to just go for the gold!! At $80 a pop (yikes...), was it really worth it?

Tom Ford Foundation Stick

Coverage: Medium to Full 
Finish: Matte
Best Applicator: MAC #130
My color: Natural

Sorta. This foundation really does cover while being "traceless", which is it's main selling point. I found it lasted from 12 hours with minimal touching up, even on my oily/combo skin. Tawny was an ok color medium olive skin tone, nothing too yellow or pink. I like a luminous, natural look so I use it only as an under eye concealer and for spot coverage around the nose. If you prefer a full coverage look, this is perfect for you, especially for those who like to contour because the product stays put.

Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation

Coverage: Light -Medium
Finish: Semi-Matte
Best Applicator: Beauty Blender
My color: Bisque

LOVE! This foundation is totally my style and is my new everyday foundation. I really adore this product, it is incredibly smooth and literally melts into skin, true to it's "traceless" name. And, there is zero drying effect but my makeup looks set. It feels very lightweight and wears all day. It's easy to layer this product for my coverage. Perfect for a natural look. Below is an example of the foundations on my skin.

My favorite aspects about Tom Ford Foundations are the textures and colors. It was so easy to find my color and the product goes on well without a ton of blending.
What foundation have you tried recently?
