The centerpiece of the Tom Ford color collection. Each Eye Color Quad is designed with four opulent complementing shades that achieve multiple looks, from a bold, smokey eye, to a sexy slash of color and everything in between. Formulated with advanced color processes, the four luxurious finishes - sheer sparkle, satin, shimmer, and matte - offer a spectrum of intensity and effects and deliver incredible shade fidelity and outstanding adhesion. Two custom applicators included.
This is my very first Tom Ford eye quad. I am rubbing my hands with glee as I write this because it is such a luxurious piece of makeup.
It comes with a lovely suede like pouch and the classy dark brown metal casing which feels hefty and well made.

The eye quad is definitely much larger than the blush.
The quad comes with 3 satiny eye colours and a lovely sparkly copper shade. Most of the shades are well pigmented and have a buttery texture. The darkest brown shade is a cross between a matte and satin. It is less pigmented than the others. All blend very well and lasts on my eyes throughout the day with a primer of course. I am very pleased to have picked this quad over Golden Mink because the colours just go so well for my colouring.
I have done a simple eye look using this quad so you can see how the colours look like on my lids.
I first applied the lightest colour all over my lids. It looks like a peachy shade with hints of gold.
I used the second lightest shade closer to my lash line and blended up to my crease.
I added the dark brown on the outer corner of my eyes and slightly winged it. Then dabbed the sparkly copper shade on the middle of my lids.
Finally added my black liner and topped it off my my favourite lashes, Ardell Fashion Lashes in 108.

The quad sells for SGD $100, it sells for USD $75. The mark up for this is about $9 by current exchange rates so this is something you can still pick up at the counters.
For SGD$100, this is a very expensive quad. I am sure you are able to get dupes of the shades. The quality of these eye shadows are very good but I wonder if they are worth that much. Then again I am a big sucker for anything luxurious so will I buy another quad, hell yes!

I am eyeing Joey's Golden Mink. I think this quad will be my next big Tom Ford splurge.
