My Experience with Tom Ford Traceless Foundation

I tried this foundation a lot before writing this review. There is something in this foundation that I was not liking and I could not pin point it exactly. It looked fabulous in person but I was not exactly happy with how it looked in my photos. The natural finish in real life was not really translating well in photos. Atleast I was not very happy. The real reason is the coverage.
It is an amazing light weight everyday foundation with sheer to light and very little buildable to a semi-medium coverage. It feels and almost looks like nothing on the skin. It is thin and blends on the skin like a dream. It is best used with finger tips or a foundation brush. With a beauty sponge, it pretty much sheers it out even more. The foundation sets within a minute or a so leaving skin looking quite natural and a bit healthy.

It is available in 8 shades and has shades even for those with deeper skin tones. I use the shade tawny and I absooolutely love about the shade is the peachy undertones of it. It stays on all day long on my normal to dry skin. It gives a soft dewy finish – not overly oily or shiny, just the right amount of glow kinds. But if you are someone who loves a matte finish, this is not for you. If I have to put the foundation in a few words it is ‘ my skin but better’. It doe snot oxidise on me at all. It has SPF 15, which makes it great for everyday wear.I have worn this foundation for as long as 8 hours and it looks pretty good by the end of the day. I noticed the foundation disappeared quite a bit just around the nose but other than that the foundation has been pretty intact. I reach out for a lot on a day to day basis. it feels and looks lovely and almost nothing on the skin. But would I wear it for photos, I won’t. I prefer a bit more coverage when it comes to photos. I don’t think it does justice in pictures. This foundation also has a fair bit of fragrance that settles down after a few minutes. But if you are allergic to perfumed cosmetics, I’d say that you stay clear of this one.

I am not really impressed with this one but that’s mostly because it is too light a coverage even for me. I personally like light to medium coverage foundations. Also, since I am photographing my makeup pretty much everyday, this is not the most ideal foundation for someone like me. But I’d say it is a gorgeous foundation for wearing to work or for people with already good skin. You can use it as a wash overall and then conceal the areas of your face here and there. I would not recommend this to people with oily skin as well. I prefer the Traceless perfecting foundation anyday over this one. If you check that review, you’d instantly notice the difference in finishes. 🙂 I’d still use it since I have it but I’d mix and match it with other foundations to get the desired finish and coverage. Not a major love I’d say.
