Tom Ford Beauty Eye Color Quad in 12 Seductive Rose Open

This pretty palette of neutrals stands out for its delightful sparkles – I like how the refined quality of the micro-glitter lifts the otherwise-ordinary colours to new heights.

I’d called it a quad of wearable neutrals when I first posted a photo of it on Instagram but now realise ‘wearable’ is subjective – those of you leery of twinkly shadows might not find this suitable but if you love those, you will probably fall in love with this it. :)

It’s reminiscent of the Bobbi Brown Black Ruby Sparkle Palette from a couple of years back, thanks to its intense light-catching effect. I love that palette and was thrilled to see the same sparkly levels in the Tom Ford quad.

In it are an iridescent shell pink, a glittery warm rose, a glittery cool taupe and a satiny chocolate plum with cool rose flecks. All four are beautifully complementary, with different textures to add dimension. I especially love the translucency of the middle 2 shades, as well as their ultra-smooth, gel-like texture (they’re powders, though).

Like Lavender Lust, this limited edition palette is Asia-exclusive. In Singapore it retails at S$100. Thus far, I’ve had good experiences with the Tom Ford eyeshadow palettes. Despite their hefty price tag, I can’t wait to purchase my next one (it’s most likely going to be Burnished Amber). Thank goodness for Tangs rebates, is all I’m saying! ;)

      Hi Hanna,

      The taupe is especially beautiful, both in tone and finish. I hope you find it!

    It’s gorgeous and you wear it well but it’s too sparkly for me. I do have one palette from Tom which I like a lot. I bought it after seeing it on someone else’s blog and was lucky it wasn’t too sparkly. Of course it was LE and exclusive to Bergdorf and now it’s gone before I could even review it.

      Hi Marcia,

      Yes, it’s very sparkly. Which palette did you get?

    This is a gorgeous palette, Mag! Tom Ford Beauty is really bad news for our pocket, hehe.

      Hi Ruby,

      I agree! I’m almost always tempted by one thing or another. I bought a Lipshine just 2 days back!

    This is the one that got away I bet if I wandered into Tangs this will somehow end up in my bag so I must resist. I must tell you how much I’m really loving Sahara Haze, thanks for the recc because if not for you I would never have picked it up.

      Hey Jac,

      This is gorgeous. Definitely a treasured quad in my Tom Ford collection. :) Two words for you: LIMITED EDITION! :D

      You’re very welcome re: Sahara Haze. It’s absolutely amazing! I’m sure you’ll agree with me that this alliterative phrase isn’t a hyperbole. ;)
