When I saw the pictures of the Tom Ford trios I was wondering whether I should get them. I am a fan of their eye shadows. They are of a great formula and I am not ashamed to admit I love the glitter shades included. I wasn't too sure about the shades though. It was afraid that She Wolf would pull too cool on me and as much as I liked In The Pink, I wondered if it would disappear on my eyes.
Looking at the swatches from The Beauty Look Book kinda sealed the deal for me. I was doomed the moment I saw the swatches.
The trio is the same size as the Tom Ford blushes. I do love the dark mahogany in contrast with the gold.
I love the glitter shade. The fall out issue is a something I am not sure about. The first time I wore it, I did not have any fall out issues. Another time when I wore it, I did see some fall out under my eye area. Perhaps I applied too much glitter, it could also be because I wore it for my dance and pole class, all that vigorous jumping around . I'm not sure. I do know that when I wear my other TF glitter shades to work, I don't get any fall out. Here is the simple eye look I did to wear out for my classes.
I patted the middle shade all over my eye lids beyond my crease line and blended away the harsh lines.
Next, the darkest shade on the outer corner of my eyes. Blending inwards.
Next, I patted the glitter shade on the inner and middle corner of the lids. See, I went overboard. I wanted the glitter to show up nicely on the camera.
Liquid liner without my usual cat eye flick.
Finally my lashes. Eek! The glue line is visible. My apologies.
I also have the Chanel Mystere quad which I feel have the same kind of shades. Aw... they look kinda washed out under the bright sunlight.
The two darkest shades of the Chanel Mystere quad on my left and the two darkest shades of the Tom Ford She Wolf quad on my right. As you can see, She Wolf is a much darker quad and make excellent dark smokey looks whereas the Mystere quad allows you to wear softer looks. It really depends on your preference.
I bought this at Sak's Fifth Avenue for US $60. Overall it is a nice palette to own if you like wearing smokey looks. The quality of the the shadows are excellent. I'm on the fence over the glitter shade but it isn't a big issue for me. The fall out isn't a glitter bomb and thus not very obvious unless you walk right up to me and stare closely.
