- top left color is light golden champagne with shimmery finish. It is very pigmented especially considering it’s such a light shade. It has very nice golden sheen.
- top right shade is rose champagne.Truly beautiful and so hard to capture the shimmer it has.
- bottom left is warm toned taupe with metallic finish and multi colored shimmer. It looks significantly different in the pan but when applied it looks so similar to rose champagne shade. These two would just blend into one color which I do not like seeing in quads. I love to have 4 different enough shades. I hate quads where everything blends into one blah color. Great pigment though.
- bottom right shade is medium warm toned brown. very pigmented and thankfully dark enough to compliment other lighter shades.
Tom Ford went for a nude soft look with this quad. Colors are beautiful enough that you can wear only one and it would brighten the whole look. Finish is metallic, the whole quad is shimmery but not glittery – shimmer is VERY fine without a fallout. This kind of finish is so hard to capture on camera. You need to see it in real and especially i n brighter light how stunning it is.
I have no problem and love to wear shimmery eyeshadows but if you dislike this kind of metallic finish you should probably skip.
Texture is smooth like a butter, soft like a silk and blends like a dream. PERIOD. These can be used both wet and dry but to be honest with you I only tried it dry and loved it, I can’t imagine how much more metallic these can get if used wet.
I would probably use this quad with addition of some other much darker color for outer corner. Or for example just rose champagne shade all over the lid and eyeliner. I will try to post a look with this quad as soon as I get a chance.
No doubt this is pricey. I have never spent this much money on a eyeshadow quad – 86$ with a tax. (my wallet is crying in the corner). Packaging is ok, not really forgiving with fingerprints and slightly bulky (no need for little stupid “brush” and sponge applicators).
