This was a difficult purchase purely because of the price point. I purchased the Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad #04 Honeymoon in Australia from David Jones for $122 AUD. It can be purchased in the United States online at Sephora for $85 USD. For four shadows it is definitely up there in price……you really are paying for the brand name on this one, but isn’t that applicable to all Tom Ford products really 🤔🙈
The packaging is a reflective brown and gold which comes with two sponge tip applicator brushes which I have already lost…….given they were Tom Ford I probably should have taken better care of them! There are four shades consisting of a sheer sparkle, satin, shimmer and matte.
The only shade that was not up to standard was shade number four, the dark matte. For the price I expect the matte to perform like a Viseart shadow (click here for review on latest Viseart Tryst Palette), and it did not. This particular shadow was rather patchy and not the easiest to blend. The other three shadows perform like a dream which is what to be expected of product in this high end price range. They applied well with fingers and intensity was easily built up with MAC fix plus and a shader brush.
For me this palette is not a stand alone palette. For transition, adding depth to outer corner and blending I had to use shades from another palette, specifically the Guerlain Ecrin 6 Colour palette in #10 Rue Des Francs Bourgeois.
Even though I found one shade a dud and have to use another palette to complete an eye look, I really love this palette. I love the shade colours and I love working with them. It is Tom Ford so paying a premium is a given. Are there better shadows on the market? Yes. Is it worth the price tag? Probably not. Was it a waste of money? Not for me….Tom Ford makes me happy 😋
Full Disclosure: I used the Nars Eye base primer on my lids before using this palette as it is what I do every time I do my makeup. Links are not affiliate.
Overall I rate this product 7.5/10.
Have you got a Tom Ford product that you can not live without?? let me know in the comments xx
