Following on from my previous review of Tom Ford's Shade and Illuminate, I will now talk about the two eye quads that I bought.
Tom Ford Burnished Amber is a beautifully coordinated palette of pale gold, shimmery pinked plum, bronze and shimmery bordeaux tones. I know that some of you may find that it sounds a little "bruisey" but I promise you it is not :)
Tom Ford Cognac Sable consists of a golden shimmery beige (slight orange undertone), orange bronze glitter, earth shimmery brown, and a plummy dark brown.
The eyeshadows have medium pigmentation, but they are buildable. Burnished Amber really reminds me of Le Metier de Beaute's Silk Road palette (which I never got around to reviewing, apologies!) with an even softer texture. LMdB Silk Road is much much more pigmented though. I can't think of immediate dupes to the Cognac Sable eyeshadows. I think the glitter shade is pretty unique, not to mention super pretty layered over the golden beige. The shadows are quite powdery and will produce some fallout if you get too much on the brush at one time. Its not a problem if you tap off any excess powders prior to eye makeup application.
I don't know if I will willingly pay so much for an eye quad again from Tom Ford, just because I like my eyeshadows to be pigmented but I do think this luxury brand is worth checking out. I picked up these two because the colour combinations are quite unique but wearable and I am glad I did!
