You see some beautiful items, but when you notice the price, you’re suddenly having less fun. Everybody knows this feeling. I saw these Tom Ford Eye Quads all over Instagram, but I knew I couldn’t really afford them. But sometimes you need to sacrifice something to get a beautiful item like this. That’s why I finally purchased the Tom Ford Eye Quads in the colors Honeymoon and Nude Dip. Why these two? Well, they are the only quads which have a “TF” stamp printed in the eyeshadows (can somebody tell me why?). Yes, I’m serious, that’s why I needed these two quads! I also purchased them because of the colors and the beautiful packaging. I’m not disappointed at all, even though I paid so much to get them! Don’t tell my mom. Let’s see what their performance’s like!
Tom Ford is a well-known brand which is famous for its luxurious perfumes and makeup items. Tom Ford is also a big name in the fashion industry! If you are a big makeup lover, you’ve got to have at least one Tom Ford item in your stash. I initially wanted to purchase a lipstick from Tom Ford in the white packaging which is from their summer collection, but I knew I wouldn’t use it that often. Then I received a mail from De Bijenkorf that said that the Honeymoon and Nude Dip quads were back in stock! That was a sign.
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, smokey eye, to a sexy splash of color and everything 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.
Honeymoon & Nude Dip
Tom Ford did a great job on the packaging. It is a slick shiny dark brown eye quad with a touch of gold underneath. Every eye quad has its own dust bag so your palette won’t be damaged when you store it, how great is that? On the inside you will find a big clear mirror with “Tom Ford” carved into it. The eye palettes I own usually don’t have great mirrors or they’re made from other materials, but the TF eye quad mirrors look really clear.
Tom Ford included two customized brushes inside the palette. I didn’t try them because I prefer using my own Zoeva eye brushes. The two brushes look pretty decent. The brush with the white bristles is for the crease and the whole eyelid and the other one is for the corner of the eye and the lower lash line.
The eyeshadows are too pretty to touch! The “TF” pattern in the powders gives them a really luxurious look. I don’t want to ruin them with my fingers or brushes. I have to say that these powders look even prettier in real life. A photograph can’t capture the beautiful shine they have.
Look at the beautiful shine these powders give! I was really careful when I swatched them on my arm, so excuse me for the terrible swatches! When I touched the powder with my finger it felt like silk, it was so delicate and soft! Fortunately, there was no falling-off when I put my finger in the powder, so you won’t waste product when you dip your brush in the powder.
When I applied these shadows on my eyelid they felt like fairy dust: they were soft and light like there was nothing on my eyelids. They blend really well and don’t leave any harsh lines or creases. You can tell that these eye quads are becoming my favorite items! The amazing thing about these shadows is that they will stay on your (oily) eyelids for a very long time, even when you skip the eye primer! I tried that once and I was not disappointed at all. They did end up in the eye crease but not so bad as shadows from other makeup brands did.
Each color is amazing on its own, but when you combine them for an eye look they all work together amazingly! Tom Ford did an amazing job by creating these beautiful shades. They are all very complementary.
03. Nude Dip
To be honest, 03. Nude Dip is my favorite! The powders don’t look very exciting or mysterious on the outside, but you’ll get an amazing shine and color when you apply them. This quad is the perfect everyday eyeshadow quad. It’s also perfect for when you are on the go and when you can only bring one eyeshadow palette. With the handy soft pouch you can take this beautiful palette everywhere when you are on the go.
I can recommend the Tom Ford Eye Quads to everyone who adores eyeshadows. You need at least one Tom Ford Eye Quad in your life, and if you can only pick one I would say: pick 03. Nude Dip! It is expensive, but consider it as a collector’s item and as something that you can treasure for a very long time. I am very happy with this big luxurious purchase!
Which one would you pick?
