Beauty Buzz: Tom Ford Beauty Collection at Neiman Marcus, Boca Raton
Last Thursday I had the pleasure of attending an event for the opening of the new Tom Ford beauty counter at Neiman Marcus, Boca Raton. Neiman’s at The Boca Raton Town Center mall is one of a few locations in South Florida that is carrying this exclusive high-end cosmetics line. I have always admired Ford’s creative sense and was excited to get some playtime with his beauty products.
At the event I had the opportunity to chat with Tom Ford’s Publicist, Katherine Holmes, who gave me a much better understanding about the brand and Ford’s vision. She also gave me the scoop on all of the products in his collection, including the new fall collection.
I learned Ford’s beauty philosophy, which is quite simple, yet genius. He’s all about enhancing a woman’s natural beauty by honing the bone structure and infusing the skin with energy. Ford believes that a woman’s best feature is natural vibrancy and energy.
Fun Fact: Lipsticks are one of Tom Fords top selling beauty products.
Tom Ford’s beauty collection has a finesse that can’t be matched. He has really carefully crafted each product in his collection and has taken every mean to create a top of the line collection. This is because Ford is 100% hands-on with his collection. He takes part in every aspect of his collection from selecting the color palette, ingredients and the packaging of each item in the collection.
Fun Fact: Tom Ford powder based products are made in Italy and are milled four times to ensure quality.
At the event, I had my makeup done by Arlinda, one of Ford’s fabulous makeup artists. It’s not often that I get to sit in the makeup chair, so I soaked up every minute of it. Not only did Arlinda do a wonderful job at applying my makeup, she also taught me tricks on how to use the products to achieve a Tom Ford face.
After seeing how great the products looked on my face, I spent some time testing and trying other goodies. I really liked many of the products including the illuminating face primer and the shade & illuminate palette, but there was one product that I was gaga over.
Known as one of Ford’s must have products, the brow sculptor is the ultimate beauty tool. This product is like a Swiss army knife for a beauty junkie. The brow pencil is an all-in-one pencil, sharpener and grooming brush. Rather than a traditional round tip, the pencil has a calligraphy tip to help shape brows into perfection. This is a well thought through product that is efficient, convenient and easy to carry.
I really enjoyed my experience at the Tom Ford beauty event and I encourage you to check out the beauty collection for yourself. To get up close and personal with Tom Ford’s Beauty Collection, head to Neiman Marcus at The Boca Town Center Mall or a counter near you.
Disclosure: Entry to this event was complimentary. I did receive a complimentary beauty services and a gift bag. All opinions still remain 100% my honest opinion.
