Fashion brands delving into the world of cosmetics appears to be quite the growing trend recently~ Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Gucci soon and now Tory Burch!
Admittedly I don’t own anything from the Tory Burch fashion line, but to be fair I don’t believe Tory Burch is officially sold in Australia to begin with! I’d love to own a pair of her flats, but I just can’t risk ordering such expensive shoes online without at least trying them on first.
Makeup however is a risk I’m happy to invest in, I decided to try out three products from the launch and share my thoughts 🙂
The three items I managed to obtain was the Lip Colour in Pas du Tout, the Lip & Cheek Tint in Cat’s Meow and Bronzer, Blush and Highlighter Palette in Divine.
My thoughts in one sentence is that Tory Burch is a great brand for natural / subtle makeup with not so subtle packaging at an even less subtle price.
The packaging in my opinion is gorgeous, I love the gold on orange combo, though I know it’s not for everyone. The product is beautifully done and gives the brand a luxurious feel that really stands out. Added bonus however is not all the packaging is metal and so it doesn’t weight a ton either!
Both the lipstick and cream blush have a lovely subtle grapefruit / mandarin scent, certainly not offensive at all and one of my favourite makeup scents.
The pigmentation is why I think this brand is really aimed more for the girl (or guy) who prefers natural beauty because the colours are soft and nude. The lipstick and cream lip/blush would be barely visible for anyone with a strong natural lip colour. The blush/highlighter compact however does give a beautiful burnt coral flush when mixed together, though I was almost too scared to use it given it’s beautiful design!
Quality however is not a bit lacking, I loved how easily all this products applied, without any effort. They go on smoothly, the lip products are moisturising and they last a decent amount of time (probably 5-6 hours before fading).
If anyone was looking of high quality natural makeup with beautiful packaging, I could not recommend Tory Burch more. Unfortunately the colour selection right now is incredibly limited, but I hope that will change soon 🙂
If you are interested, the Bronzer, Blush & Highlighter Palette in Divine retails for $48USD, the Lip Colour in Pas du Tout retails for $32USD and Lip & Cheek Tint in Cat’s Meow goes for $38USD. Certainly not for the budget conscious!
