Tom Ford Nude Dip Eye Color Quad Review

Tom Ford Nude Dip Eye Color Quad

I have been lucky enough to own the utterly stunning Tom Ford Nude Dip Eye Color Quad for over a month and can happily vouch that although it pained my soul ever so slightly to disturb the eyeshadows, I did so and said palette has quickly become a staple in my make-up bag. A combination of warm and cool toned eyeshadows that not only cover just about every Autumn/Winter trend going but are the perfect shades and formulation for an easy peasy smoky eye. Call of the search your new day to night palette is here and man oh, man is it a beauty.

I own a few Tom Ford Eyeshadow palettes and the packaging is not only utterly beautiful (would you expect anything less) but beyond practical. A great size, it will comfortably fit into the palm of most hands (I have ridiculously small hands and it is approx the size of my palm), inside you will find two duo ended applicators - three ends are foam and one is a brush, a great sized mirror. As Mr Ford is all about luxury for the limited edition Autumn make-up collection all products come housed inside deep chocolate packaging complete with a matching velvet pouch. I've never felt so spoiled in all my life.

As mentioned above the Tom Ford Nude Dip Eye Color Quad is limited edition so if you like what you see pounce quickly! Being a neutral lover the hues that make up the latest Tom Ford quad are right up my alley - two cool toned shades that can be used as an all over wash of colour or as a highlight, coupled with two warmer tones that can be used to add depth, definition or of course as a solid block of colour. The Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quads don't come with shade names but a quick break down from top left: a light shimmering ivory, light rose gold, a cool toned taupe and lastly a rich chocolate brown. Despite being a combination of both light and cool tones all four shades work well together and should suit most complexions. I do think the wearers natural undertones (i.e if you are warm or cool toned) will dictate how the shades pull once worn.

Now I'm pretty sure this will come of little a surprise but the quality of the Tom Ford Nude Dip Eye Color Eyeshadows are nothing short of great. I should hope so too given that the palette costs £63! Each eyeshadow is silky soft, beautifully pigmented and not prone to product fall out. The eyeshadows glide on to the skin with an almost gel like texture and are a dream to blend out. Although each shade is metallic based they are not stark or overwhelming, rather they add a hint of radiance to the eyes and have more of a subtle finish than you would imagine from simply looking at the palette. Each eyeshadow within the palette is constructed of various shades of pigment and dare I say it micro fine glitter particles which give a multi-dimensional finish. Should you want to the shadows can also be dampened to create eyeliners or a more intense finish.

  8. I have this palette and I am very happy and lucky to have it, but really girls, all the looks I can make with this one I can also make with my UD Naked 1 palette. Having said that, if you can get this one, pounce!

  9. These are such beautiful colours but that price is absolutely insane! I feel like those are really staple colours that I could probably find elsewhere too, but I think their silk finish is what makes them unique :)
