Tom Ford Golden Rose Eye and Lip Set (Nordstrom Exclusive)

Tom Ford Golden Rose Eye Lip Set Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | The Beauty Look Book

Tom Ford Beauty has a limited-edition trio for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year called the Golden Rose Eye and Lip Set ($91). It contains a miniature sample size Indian Rose Lip Color (0.03 oz), a full size Extreme Mascara in Raven (0.27 oz) and full size Cream Color for Eyes in Escapade. This set has colors and products I’d consider classic staples. They aren’t the most trendy or necessarily exciting shades, but they are truly perfect for everyday wear – ones I don’t think you can go wrong with for any occasion.

Long-time Tom Ford Beauty collectors will recognize Escapade as a repromote from several years ago. It was a limited-edition shade and if you missed out I recommend you give it a try this round. It’s a light champagne gold that flashes a tiny bit of pink/peach. It’s a great brightening shade for the lids that will enhance the lids with a pretty soft shimmer without looking frosty. This is the only color exclusive to the set.

Indian Rose Lip Color is one of the best everyday neutral rose colors that isn’t too light or deep. I’ve been a long-time devotee of Pink Dusk and Spanish Pink, but as I’m quite tan right now I’ve found some lighter lip colors aren’t as easy for me to wear without a bit of liner. Indian Rose is the perfect in between shade and easy to wear for a natural rosy hue. If you’re one who has yet to splurge on a Tom Ford Lipstick this miniature sample size is a nice way to try one – I think once you try one you’ll fall in love. You can buy the full size separately for this one.

Tom Ford Mascaras have been a staple in my collection. I’m super picky with mascaras and the Tom Ford ones never fail me. I actually prefer the Waterproof Extreme which I’ve featured a number of times here on the blog, but it is one of the more difficult ones to remove in the evening. In hot humid weather the waterproof has never smudged on me even with sweat. The regular version works well too to lengthen, volumize and hold the curl, it’s just not waterproof.

The size of the lip color in this set is a sample size so it’s very tiny. I’ve compared it next to Lips and Boys and the regular size Lip Color as well. Swatch comparisons to other pinks below:

If you’re looking for wearable everyday kinds of colors this is a great set of staples. Indian Rose is one of the few lipsticks I’ve used up entirely and repurchased and I didn’t mind having another one in the mini size. I really love the Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes so I was really happy to find that Escapade was relaunched. I do think you can get a similar effect with one of the other shades shown above or Laura Mercier’s Caviar Eye Stick in Rose Gold (I’ve used mine up so I couldn’t swatch to compare) – but I really love the Tom Ford formulas for an effortless kind of wash. It has a brightening effect on me and also doubles as a nice base for powder shadows.

You can find the Tom Ford Golden Rose Eye and Lip Set exclusively at Nordstrom for the Anniversary Sale. Have you tried any of these before? What did you think? Have you hauled any of the other beauty exclusives or are you picking new launches from other brands? I’ll have a couple more posts on my Nordstrom buys from the sale. Also coming up this week a lip haul with new formulas and a summer beauty launch review that has some really amazing highlighters.

    Love the Indian Rose lipstick colour.

    Have you tried the Bite Beauty liquid lipsticks though? I would love to see a lip swatch of Chutney. Please do a review! Thanks!

    Indian Rose was my very first TF lipstick and it’s a shade I’ve been going back to for years. I can’t imagine my lipstick collection without it. Whether I’m wearing it “full strength” or lightly blotted down for more of a stain, I always feel like me but so much prettier when I’m wearing it. I’ve encountered plenty of similar shades over the years, but it’s the combination of undertones, texture, finish, and the way it wears on me that sets it apart. I’d rather splurge on what is–for me–the real deal than buy a bunch of less expensive “dupes” that just miss the mark.

    Like Eileen my Indian Rose was my first Tom Ford lipstick and I still find myself gravitating back to it. It’s a true classic, imo – there’s nothing left to perfect!

    Thrilled to see the positive review of this set as it was one of my two splurges, far (the Charlotte Tilbury Perfect Pink Hot Lips Set was the other…I’ve been dying to get my hands on those LE shades for ages – now CT just needs to re-promote Confession abd I’ll be in heaven). I definitely bought him set for Escapade, not gonna lie…was a little late to the Tom Ford game and Escapade and illicit has been annoyingly evasive!)

    Wow, Escapade sure looks similar to Opale in your swatches! Do you think that the shade had been changed a little it is it at still the original? I love Opale so no worries it they’re super similar – I’ll def wear both.

    You look stunning in Indian Rose, SabrinaI Would you say that Collin is redundant if I have mini and full-sized in Indian Rose?

    Can’t wait for the upcoming Charlotte Tilbury releases btw. I know your reviews will be fabulous <3

    I’m also another person that Indian Rose was their first TF lipstick. It remains one of my most worn lipsticks and I’ve been through multiple tubes. I had missed out on Escapade the first time around, so I eagerly snatched this set up so I could have one. I love how warm yet neutral it is. The first time my husband ever commented on how gorgeous my lashes were, I had tried a TF mascara at Bergdorf’s. Tempted to buy a second set of this so I will always have Escapade.

    I ordered this when the public access opened. So glad to see Escapade released and didn’t get Indian Rose when Sephora had it as a sample. I, too, prefer TF Waterproof mascara but look forward to trying another mascara from this brand. A great deal, IMO. Thanks for the comparison swatches and review, Sabrina!

    gosh this is so beautiful through and through. what an all rounded set, methinks. i can see the shades would suit tan skintone but idk if it can go darker. indian rose is gorgeous!

  • Abdullah Allamin July 24, 2017 at 7:43 am

    I see in this article Indian rose becomes most lockable matter. I also want to write something about Indian rose and that I didn’t find Indian rose color anywhere but only for lipstick.

  • Lets Talk Beauty July 24, 2017 at 9:32 am

    What a gorgeous set – so well put together. The lip colour is stunning and would be flattering on almost everyone.

  • Vanessa Buttino July 25, 2017 at 9:12 am

    The lip colour looks really pretty but I wish the set included a full size lipstick instead of the sample size.
