Tom Ford's Entire Eye Shadow Collection!

Model is wearing Violet Dusk.

Hello Gorgeous!

I have the goods on Tom Ford's eye shadow collection.  Finally the most anticipated makeup collection is out at Neiman Marcus stores for purchase.  What I love about these eye shadows is that they have great texture and pigmentation.  What I do not like is the price range, $75 for one compact.  Chanel's eye shadows don't even cost that much ($58).  Let's face it you really are just paying for the name Tom Ford!  

I tried to find dupes for some of the colors but what I found was that the only shades that don't compare to any out there are Sahara Haze and Cobalt Rush.  Cobalt Rush is actually the best blue I have ever seen.  I love it!  The browns in this collection, 3 in all, you can find else where at a reasonable price (Mac has great colors that are similar).  The only shades I find different in the brown collection are Golden Mink.  Three shades in that collection are shimmery and have a high shine effect to them.  These are great for the holiday season! They sort of remind me of the John Galliano's eye shadow collection from Dior (discontinued).  

The purples in this collection, Violet Dusk and Crushed Amethyst, are gorgeous and should only be a treat to yourself because they are not colors you would wear everyday.  Purples look great on green, hazel, and brown eyes. If you decide to buy any buy the purples because they will last you a long time.  

FYI: Tom Ford's collection is made by Estee Lauder!

  1. I want to try burnished amber! Nice swatches :)

  2. I have Golden Mink and Cognac Sable. Now it seems like I need Crushed Amethyst, Sahara Haze. Thanks for the swatches!

  3. A very long time ago the high end dept stores sold eye shadows by Charlie,there was a favorite of mine called silver plum frost which I still have the tiniest bit of left in my makeup drawer.To this day I can't seem to find any plum shade that comes close to this shade.If anybody has any suggestions or remembers this eyeshadow could you please let me know,the crushed amethyst looks like it would be gorgeous on blue eyes too.Thank You,Susan
