Tom Ford Beauty :: Neiman Marcus Fashion Island

Tom Ford Beauty :: Neiman Marcus Fashion Island

Rejoice! Tom Ford has arrived.

I am besides myself with happiness to announce one of the biggest beauty events to ever hit Orange County. This morning Neiman Marcus Fashion Island in Newport Beach, hosted a beautiful special-event brunch in celebration of their newest addition, the Tom Ford Beauty boutique. Invited guests sipped mimosas, received make-overs from the Tom Ford artists, and learned first hand about all the products from the experts. Yes, friends, I did hear a choir of angels sing.

Do you know what this means? I’ve said it numerous times on The Trend Tribe and I will say it again, Tom Ford is the greatest visionary of our time. Think that is a bold statement? Well then please prove me wrong. I dare you. Even Oprah has “never met a Tom Ford lipstick I didn’t want to take home,” and included the 4 Piece Lip Color Boxed Gift Set on her Oprah’s Favorite Things 2012 show! Oh, how I swoon over that Crimson Noir…


Tom Ford creates. He has perfected the art of capturing exactly how sophisticated women (and men,) want to feel, not how they ‘think’ they should look. Tom knows. He sees well beyond the trends paving the way, leaving everyone in his dust trying to catch-up. Tom Ford is timeless. The epitome of classic, but with a healthy dash of naughty to make women feel invincible.  Most importantly, his visions allows me to bathe head-to-toe in black while the other designers pressure me to add that ‘splash of color’. Meh and pout. I love black. I love smokey. I seek darkness.

In Tom Ford, I’m allowed to embrace mystery and my attitude propels from 0-to-60 within seconds. Beauty might stem from the inside out, but in Tom Ford, my world is instantly a runway. The moment I apply the Tom Ford lipstick, something inside ignites. The lipstick IS my ‘pop of color’.

During our recent Influencer Weekend in Las Vegas, Tom Ford Beauty treated our Trendsetters to full beauty makeovers where I had my first peek at what Neiman Marcus Fashion Island’s boutique might resemble. In a nutshell, it was Heaven with a touch of spice. One of only three color boutiques in California,  Tom Ford Beauty at Neiman Marcus Fashion Island EXCEEDED my expectations. I may never confess the name of my signature Tom Ford scent that I wear every. single. day. but I will share in a heartbeat my favorite Tom Ford Beauty products. You really cannot go wrong with the Jardin Noir Collection; however I do like to mix-it-up a little. You really must go in and see for yourself!

Once again, I could just keep listing things. Scarlet Rouge + Black Orchid lipsticks, Dominatrix + Viper nail colors, and the Taupe Brow Sculpter. Oh, the Brow Sculpter! Every detail counts. Life is way too short not to feel like a Tom Ford Muse.

Now Santa just has to cooperate and send me the skincare line so I can report back those results!

A very special thank you to Neiman Marcus Fashion Island, Tom Ford executives, and the talented artists for hosting such a wonderful event.

  1. So fun! My only complaint is that I find it hard to focus enough to learn about the product line when the hotness that is Tom Ford is in view. I get dizzy.

    The lipsticks are to die for – and thankfully they have little scent. Creamy and great coverage!
