Tom Ford Beauty Golden Mink Eye Quad

After much contemplation, I finally broke down and purchased a Tom Ford Beauty Eye Color Quad. Tom Ford Beauty is definitely one of the more luxury beauty brands out there which means the products come with a hefty price tag.  $75 for an eye shadow quad seems a little much, but to me you are paying for the name as well as the product. I had some extra Christmas money so I though what the heck, let’s try one out and see if it is as good as the reviews I had read. I choose to try out one of the more neutral quads in Golden Mink.
Turns out the reviews were right! The quad is luxurious to look at and to use. The shadows come in a large brown and gold case with a large mirror inside. It also includes two small dual ended applicators; one has two sponge applicators, one for shadow and the other for liner. The other has one sponge applicator and a brush on the other side.
Golden Mink contains a light gold sparkle, a coopery peach sparkle, shimmery tan and shimmery deep bronze.  The sparkle shades are absolutely beautiful, although they aren’t super pigmented; they have a sophisticated sparkle to them not a cheap glittery look.  The bottom shades have excellent color payoff and are finely milled. The texture is soft and buttery to the touch and all the shades blend into the skin effortlessly. All of the shades wear beautifully and don’t crease much at all (especially over a base). This quad really can take you from day to night in an instant. Overall, I am super excited about this palette. I think the colors will be lovely for all year round but will really shine in the spring and summer months (oh I can’t wait for a little sunshine and a tan)! Till next time….
