Tom Ford released 3 eyeshadow quads with a new creme powder formula. I picked up 2 of these quads. This is my review for the Tom Ford Eye Color Creme Eyesahdow Quad Smoky Quartz. Do you like shimmer eyeshadows or matte ones? In addition, Smoky Quartz is the only quad out the newly released quads with all matte shades.
The Sephora website says this is “A palette inspired by Tom Ford’s philosophy of sculpting features with light and symmetry that contours eyes with melting, magnetizing shades.”
Packaging Of The Tom Ford Smoky Quartz Eye Color Creme Eyeshadow Quad
This quad is housed in Tom Ford's signature cognac compact with gold detailing. The compact is magnetic and has two double ended applicators and a nice sized mirror. Also it comes with a suede dust bag, just like other Tom Ford eyeshadows.
Formula Of The Tom Ford Smoky Quartz Eye Color Creme Eyeshadow Quad
Brand description from the Nordstrom website “Infused with pigment technology with rich emollients that mimic the structure of skin's ceramides, these longwearing eyeshadows move with skin for a crease- and flake-resistant finish along with high-impact intensity. The creamy hues impeccably enhance eyes in one swipe.”
Shades Of The Tom Ford Smoky Quartz Eye Color Creme Eyeshadow Quad
Tom Ford Smoky Quartz Eyeshadow Quad is a palette that has rich, matte nudes and brown eyeshadow shades. Sephora website describes this palette as a neutral matte eyeshadow palette that has shades in neutral beige, dusty nude, mid-tone terracotta, and deep brown. And I certainly agree with the brand description on the website.
I surely love this new creme powder formula that Tom Ford came out with. I am happy with the beautiful Tiger Eye Eyeshadow Quad and also the Smokey Quartz Eye Color Creme Eyeshadow Quad. The Smoky Quartz Eyeshadow Quad is very earthy, in my opinion. You can create sultry, smokey eye looks with this quad. The eyeshadow are smooth and blend well. The formula is very creamy. To my fingers, the formula feels like cream but it is powder. I like to use the deepest brown shade as a liner.
With these new Tom Ford Eye Color Creme Eyeshadow Quads, it's all about the formula. I'm definitely loving this new formula and I'm glad I tried Tiger Eye and Smoky Quartz. Moreover, there is no fall out with this eyeshadow quad. In fact I think this palette with beautiful, creamy matte shades will be perfect for mature skin too. This palette is so sophisticated and can be used to create intense looks as well as subtle work appropriate looks. In particular, I want to mention that Smokey Quartz like Tiger Eye is a warm eyeshadow palette. Rose Topaz is a cool eyeshadow palette out of the three new releases.
