I'm not dead, just incredibly busy with work. I will probably be super busy through the end of July, but I will try to post here and there in the meantime. And since my posts are few and far between right now, I am going to post about things that I truly love!
It has sort of become my ritual that when I go to Vegas, I stop by Nieman Marcus and pick up a Tom Ford eyeshadow quad. Yes, I know they're available online, but I just love looking through the Tom Ford cosmetics line. It is gorgeous.
Last time I picked up the quad in Golden Mink, so this time, I picked up a quad in Silvered Topaz.
The Tom Ford eyeshadows come in 3 different formulas, shimmer, satin and matte. This quad contains 1 shimmer, 2 satins and a matte. All of the shadows had good payoff and were very soft and blendable without having fallout issues.
- shimmery champagne - Shimmer formula. Beautiful, translucent shimmer, with gold and silver sparkles.
- gray taupe - Satin formula. Very complex color, very taupe-y, but in certain lights can look almost greenish. Good payoff, but not great.
- dark cool brown - Matte formula. Soft, blendable, excellent payoff. Color is very true to pan.
- medium cool brown - Satin formula. Complex formula that swatches a smidge warmer than it looks in the pan. Very soft and blendable with good payoff.
