Tom Ford eyeshadow quad features four complementary shades that give you a range of looks from bold to smoky, or sexy to subtle. Each features four different finishes too, from a sheer sparkle to a satin to a shimmer to a matte so you can wear each alone or mix and match for an unforgettable look.
Disco dust is one of the new quads added for spring 2016 to the TF permanent lineup. I was debating between Disco dust and Honeymoon but decided against latter because it seemed “too red” for my ghostly pale complexion.
Disco dust is only my second Tom Ford quad and the first one with this formula . The other one I have is Nude dip (reviewed here
Tom Ford signature packaging is bulky, heavy and feels and looks luxurious. I am not sure how I feel about the brown casing but it looks nice paired with gold.
Shade 1 is light taupe beige with glitter finish. I mean really chunky glitter. It barely leaves any color (Wet or dry). Application with the brush is almost impossible and will leave you with glitter scattered all over your face. Applied with finger it actually gives nice pop of shimmer on top of other colors. But that’s all it is – glitter topper. In my opinion waste of space in this palette.
Shade 2 is light peachy brown that on the skin translates much darker than what it looks in the pan. I was surprised by this. I was hoping it will be lighter and that it can be used as all over lighter base color or even for a brow highlight. With that said this palette lacks lighter shade. It is very nicely pigmented, soft and blends easily. No fallout.
Shade 3 is pinkish copper with a shimmer finish. It has very fine shimmer and great pigmentation. Since I am so pale I am able to use it only in the middle of my lid to give pop of color but using it all over makes me look sick.
Shade 4 is dark chocolate brown with good pigmentation, and very fine golden shimmer. It is easy to blend without any fallout. I loved this shade in the outer corner and in the crease. I softened it up a little bit with shade 2.

Overall you are getting three really good shades and one that is total disaster. Is it worth 80$ + tax? Probably not. But if you are Tom Ford fan or you want to splurge on something that looks/feels luxurious then I assume yes. I’ve purchased mine at Neiman Marcus.
How do you feel about Tom Ford as a brand?? Any must haves to recommend?
