Tom Ford makes the most expensive color cosmetics products we’ve ever tried. We reluctantly love his lipsticks (amazing but incredibly pricey), and recently we dabbled into his eyeshadow quads. Here’s the marketing blurb on the eyeshadow quads:
The centerpiece of the Tom Ford color collection. Each Eye Color Quad is designed with four opulent complementing shades that achieve multiple looks, from a bold, smoky eye, to a sultry slash of color and everything in between. Formulated with advanced color processes, the four luxurious finishes—sheer sparkle, satin, shimmer and matte—offer a spectrum of intensity and effects and deliver incredible shade fidelity and outstanding adhesion. Two custom applicators included.
Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in 02 Cognac Sable is a beautiful eyeshadow quad – it’s very warm and comprises a peach shade, a sparkly copper shade, a warm chocolatey brown with shimmers, and a medium brown with shimmers. It’s GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS. The second picture below was taken in direct sunlight, so it washes out the colors a bit, but you can definitely see the intense shimmer and sparkle in the shadows. This is NOT for someone who does not like shimmery eyeshadows, to say the least!
All the colors applied really well. Because of the shimmer and glitter content, it’s not an eyeshadow quad that is suitable for everyday use on its own – you could definitely use the 3 shimmery shades and mix it with some plain matte shadows for a more work/school-appropriate look, but if you just wanted to use this one palette, it may be a bit much. However, for any other occasion (party, night out, etc.), it would be perfect. Check out a look by Youtube beauty guru Raeview using this quad – we tried it, and it looked AMAZING (tutorial starts around the 13 minute mark).
Priced at $75, it’s a very luxe product and is worth checking out if you are comfortable with the price point. For the rest of us, it’s an item best left for your holiday wish list.
