When I had my lovely Tom Ford make over in Selfridges a few weeks ago I got so many compliments that it made me want to bathe in Tom Ford forever more!! 
So when a box of goodies arrived for me a did a happy dance! I have been testing out the products at home so the first thing I am going to give you my feedback on is the Tom Ford Traceless Foundation SPF15.

For a start, the packaging is divine. It is a solid, heavy, expensive looking bottle that is completely perfect to display on your dressing table. Tom Ford really do have the packaging nailed – gold and deep bronze and glamorous!
It has a pump application system which is really the only way I like my foundation.

In terms of the formula, well it is pretty dreamy. It is really liquidy but not too runny.

This is Tom Ford Traceless Foundation SPF15 in 05 Natural, which is a tiny bit dark for me as I have been really lazy and let my fake tan wear off, but as you will see, it still blends really well into my skin. It has a good amount of yellow in it, so is perfect for toning down the red in my skin.
Ok so you’ll want to see it on my skin!
Here I am with no makeup on at all – very pale!

As you can see, it completely neutralises the redness in my skin, evens out the skin tone and leaves a beautiful dewy, soft-focus finish.
This is a light coverage foundation, so you can still see the skin – my freckles are still visible. It doesn’t cover but it really enhances the natural look of the skin. I wouldn’t expect it to cover any spots or problem areas – you’d probably need a concealer for that.
Here is it on your the left side of my face (as you see it) so you can see a closer comparison:

I think this is the perfect foundation for someone that doesn’t like foundation and wants to look like they are not wearing anything on their skin. It will work well on mature and dry skin. Oiler skins may need to set it  more with a powder.
I really love it – it looks beautiful, feels super light and comfortable and really diffuses lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores, and lasts well on my skin. Plus I know I am wearing Tom Ford, and as a makeup fanatic, that is a good feeling!
The only problem is the price. It is £60 which is so much for a foundation. I have foundations that I love and do a kind of similar that cost half of that or less. But they aren’t Tom Ford!
Have you tried this yet? What do you think?
