Tom Ford Sole Di Positano, Fleur de Portofino, Soleil Blanc, Paradiso Eye and Cheek | The Beauty Look Book

I have some more Tom Ford Beauty newness to review in makeup and fragrance. I had already featured a large portion of the Summer Soleil collection last month and am still enjoying everything very much. After a bit of browsing online I noticed a few other products pop up called Paradiso in the Cream and Powder Eye Duo, Cream Cheek Color, Moisturecore Lip Color and Lip Color Sheer. Some other new launches includes a new perfume called Sole di Positano (already shown in this roundup here), Private Blend All Over Body Spray extensions to include Fleur de Portofino and an Dry Oil Spray in Soleil Blanc.

Up first are the scent and body extensions. I’m a huge fan of Tom Ford perfumes even though are on the expensive side. The Private Blends are my favorite and the best one I’ve bought include the Soleil Blanc and Fleur de Portofino. The latest is Sole di Positano which I’m obsessed with for spring. It’s fresh, green, bright different from anything I’ve tried before. Of course when I saw the body sprays and a dry oil spray I was intrigued. They are priced significantly lower so I had to investigate. I bought the Fleur de Portofino All Over Body Spray and the Soleil Blanc Dry Oil Spray and I have to say that the perfumes are the better buy for lasting power and strength. The Body Spray lasts a long time on me if I’m indoors but fades quickly on me if I go outside. Something with the Florida air, heat and my body chemistry doesn’t seem to want to hold the scent. The Dry Oil Spray has a very faint Soleil Blanc scent with a raw oil kind of scent if that makes sense. This one was a disappointment to me in terms of smell – I had expected it to be all kinds of amazing as I love the perfume, but I can barely smell it on me. That being said I had it on all over and my husband walked by me and said “wow you smell really good” which surprised me as I feel like the perfume version is more noticeable.

For color there’s a new Paradiso Cream and Powder Eye Duo. The cream side is lighter and more pink compared to Golden Peach while the glitter side is darker than Golden Peach. I love the cream from Paradiso and the powder from Golden Peach (go figure). I do think they’re different enough to justify both but you might disagree. I swatched them side by side so you can decide for yourself in the event you don’t have a counter near you.

Swatched below Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick in Rose Gold + Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes in Opale (also reviewed here) as a reference for what I consider more champagne/neutrals next to Paradiso and Golden Peach.

For the cheeks there’s also a new Paradiso Cream Cheek Color which at first glance I thought was Pink Sand. If you put them side by side you’ll see the difference. Paradiso has the same gorgeous luminous glowy quality that Pink Sand does. Right now that I’ve gotten more color Pink Sand is almost highlighter material for me while Paradiso is more like a blush. I love this. I’ve only had a chance to test it for one day as it’s something I had to put on immediately – lasting power is quite good for a cream blush. I can’t say how it will perform in super hot humid weather yet but will keep testing it in the upcoming months as the season shifts.

Swatch comparisons to MAC Quiktrick Stick in Miss Cupcake/Tomato, Tom Ford Cream Cheek Color in Pink Sand, Paradiso and Pieno Sole, Tom Ford Sheer Cheek Duo in Paradise Lust. The cheek duo has more pigment and is less dewy than the cream cheek color.

For those curious, I did not buy the Paradiso Lip Color Sheer (I already own it, review here) or the Paradiso Moisturecore Lip Color – they are pretty much identical. I get a quick swatch of them at the counter.

Bottom line, I love the Paradiso eye and cheek items. I do think they’re worth owning even if you have Pink Sand or Golden Peach. For the body and fragrance, I wanted to love the body spray and oil spray – I just think the perfumes are the better buy, although I do like the body spray. I would entirely skip the oil. It added a nice sheen to the skin but I didn’t notice a lot of added hydration my skin other than a light oil. Brands like Caudalie, Moroccanoil or Nuxe have better body oils in my opinion. If you try one new fragrance this spring, I think it should be Soleil Blanc, Fleur de Portofino or Sole di Positano.

You can find all the items at counters now. Available online at Sephora, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Beautylish and Tom Ford Beauty.

    Thanks for the excellent review, Sabrina. I love TF cream blushes, so will pick that up while pondering the cream & powder eyeshadow. Thankfully, I own the Paradiso lipstick, a find last summer at my local CCO.

    • You’re welcome! I was thankful I still have a lot of the lipstick left as well – saved me some $$$ by them having a repromote!

      • TraceyEB

        I can appreciate that! 2016 was my first Tom Ford summer and I felt like I was catching up on previous releases while also purchasing from the new collection. Thankful for the repromotes items if only to give my wallet a little breather. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • I’m obsessed with Tom Ford fragrances… and the makeup is really winning my heart as well!

    Yay! I took the risk and went for the Paradiso Cream and Powder Duo despite some qualms after hearing the cream was basically Pink Haze renamed. They totally look different in your swatches. I love Opale as an everyday wash across my lids and the Paradiso cream shadow sounds like the perfect way to mix things up a bit.

    The Paradiso Cream Cheek Color was totally a no-brainer – went straight into my cart. Very excited to get them, especially after your great review!

    • I wonder who would say the cream in Paradiso is Pink Haze when the cream in Golden Peach is more like it! At any rate I’m glad they are different too ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I feel like if I had light skin Paradiso would be different enough from Golden Peach to justify, but I feel that on my dark tan complexion they would probably look pretty indistinguishable. I’m more a fan of the bronze colors.

    • You’re probably right! If you have Golden Peach then I’d say stick with that one and save the $$ for something a bit more unique ๐Ÿ™‚ I die for bronze colors too! Wish they had a nude/bronze one.

    How does the cheek color compare to Bicoastal? Cream vs. powder aside they seem like they might be similar enough colors to more or less be a dupe.

    • Paradiso Cream Cheek Color is more coral and more dewy. Bicoastal is definitely pink in tone and has more shimmer with a drier texture. Definitely not dupes at all.

    Beautiful review and swatches! I got the Paradise Lust duo and it’s amazing, worth every penny. The Soleil Blanc shimmer spray oil is wonderful, esp. with the discussion last week of the dry skin syndrome in FL–LOL! it really does moisturize and leaves a pretty shimmer and scent that lasts, for me, half the day.

  • That blush looks SO gorgeous on you! It’s definitely going on my wishlist.
