Tom Ford believes that makeup and skin care can be transformational–enabling a real woman to be as glamorous and inspirational as she can be. The Tom Ford Beauty Collection is a combination of luxury, with an impeccible eye for color. Read on for more…
The centerpiece of the Tom Ford Beauty Collection is the Eye Color Quad; a collection of four eye shadows with different textures. The four finishes include sheer sparkle, satin shimmer, shimmer and matte. These finishes can be used to provide a variety of looks, from subtle to bold. The color combinations are exquisite; from luscious amethyst to golden mink, it is hard to choose.
The Silvered Topaz Eye Shadow Quad colors include a sheer sparkly champagne shade (top left), silver-grey satin shimmer (top right), a taupe shimmer (bottom left) and matte brown (bottom right). Each pan of shadow is approx. 1 inch by 1 inch. The eye shadow is soft and velvety, with excellent pigmentation and blendability. I think that what is most striking are the colors themselves. Each is usable singly or together as a harmonie; there are no “throwaway” colors that you won’t use in this quad.
I tend to wear neutral colors and makeup, so the Silvered Topaz Eye Shadow Quad gives a very pretty daytime look that can be transformed into a more dramatic smoky eye for night. I have found that this quad is very versatile and really like the color combinations. Although two multi-function brushes are included, I prefer to use my own makeup brushes and found that I liked the Chanel #2 brush the best. A more firm bristle would damage the eye shadow (I’ve noticed the same thing with the Tom Ford Blush that I bought)
