Tom Ford Cream Color For Eyes in Opale

Monday, November 26, 2018

I've slowly acquired Tom Ford Beauty products over the last year, picking up one or two things at a time. One item I bought back in April during the spring Sephora sale was a cream eyeshadow in the shade Opale. 

My intention was to use this cream shadow as a base for sparkly powder shadows to further enhance their shine. I bought this sight unseen based on Temptalia & the Beauty Look Book's swatches, but since then a Tom Ford counter has come to town. 

1, 2 & 3 layers over bare skin

Opale is a champagne nude shimmer. The formula is mousse like and can be worn sheer or built up in a couple of layers for a more opaque look. The particle size of the shimmer is very fine, this is not glittery or pearly, but somewhere in between. Once the formula sets, the shimmer transfers a bit but doesn't crease much on my lids.

The closest thing I have to compare it to is the paler side of Rouge Bunny Rouge Birdwing Beauteous (PR sample). They are nearly the same color, but BB is comprised of much larger flecks which can appear metallic apricot at some angles.

Here I'm wearing just Opale with a swipe of eyeliner.

Here I wore NARS Versailles from the Loaded Palette over Opale.

The particle size of Opale is just a tad too small to do what I envisioned it to do, also it is a bit more sheer on the first swipe to act as a base. As a stand alone eyeshadow color, I'm not wowed. It's rather boring. I actually like Opale a lot as a highlighter pressed over the cheekbones much more than I do on the eyes by itself.

Overall something I'm glad I purchased on sale. I enjoyed the texture, the classic hefty Tom Ford mahogany and glass packaging but just not this particular shade. I briefly had another color called Sphinx, an interesting looking light duochrome, in my basket during this last Sephora sale but didn't follow through with it.

Tom Ford Cream Color For Eyes are $46 each and can be purchased from stores such as Sephora, Neiman Marcus, and Bergdorf Goodman.

Have you tried any Tom Ford cream shadows? Have any recommendations for a shimmery boosting base? I'm considering Charlotte Tilbury and Nabla.
