I was thrilled today to find that my Tom Ford Beauty preorder selections had arrived! I was so excited that I had to immediately post my initial thoughts. First up is the Eye Color Quad in Cognac Sable. I selected this quad mostly because of the lovely coppery orange shade with loads of sparkle. The other shades are neutrals, and while not as original, are entirely wearable.
The packaging while very chic is actually quite large and bulky. The Tom Ford logo is imprinted on the side in gold. The rest of the case is mirrored and dark brown and comes in a velvet pouch. It comes with 2 standard applicators. Starting from the left, there is a brown tinged gold with a satin finish, then a coppery orange with lots of gold glitter, a dark true brown with tiny shimmers, and a lighter rust brown with a satin finish. On first swipe, the texture is a bit powdery, and the pigmentation is fair. It did take some building up of the color to achieve a nice dark swatch.
My first impression is good, but not great. I think I was expecting a little more. I love the sparkly orange shade, I think it is stunning and I don't own anything like it. However, in terms of the texture and pigmentation, I prefer the quality of Le Metier de Beaute. Perhaps I need to play around a bit more and see how the shadows wear. Tom Ford Beauty is available now at Bergdorf Goodman. The Eye Color Quads retail for $75.00 for 0.35 oz/10 g of product.
