Today I have a newly acquired foundation to share with all of you today. It’s Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation. I picked this up about three weeks ago. This would be my first Tom Ford foundation products.
Firstly I must say that the packaging caught my immediate attention. Foundation with pump function is not something unusual, but when the pump comes without a cap, it’s something interesting for me. After having so many foundations and putting them in my drawer, some foundation caps are just not as long lasting as I wish it would be. The design of this Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation comes with a cap that’s twistable and pumped. I feel that this packaging is safer for me who likes to place my foundation bottles in a tight drawer.
There are 15 shades available in total, but as of three weeks ago, we have not received all 15 shades yet. I picked up no 13 in buff, it seems that it suits me the best for my asian skin. I tried on shade #4 bisque too, but I find that it’s too dark for me.
Texture wise, the foundation feels thicker than most foundations I owned. I usually use one and a half pump to use all over my face. It gives me a medium coverage and it’s buildable to full coverage. What I love most about this foundation is that – although it comes in a thicker consistency compared to most of my foundations, it doesn’t feel heavy at all. It also provides a very natural finish without being over dewy nor matte. There are not many foundations that I would be comfortable wearing without setting it off with setting powder, but for this one, I love the look and the finish of Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation on its own. My face looks very natural and looking fresh.
To apply this foundation, I tried using my fingers to blend it all over my face. It’s very easy to blend with my finger; To me, no much blending needed when using this foundation. I just had to make sure that this spreads all over my face evenly and covers my face with enough coverage. I tried blending this foundation with Tom Ford Cream Foundation brush too, but I personally prefer blending it with my own finger.

And here’s how my face looks with Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation
Overall I think Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation has performed up to my expectation for being able to create a smooth looking skin on me without making my face looks too glowy.
