Tom Ford| Eye Colour Quad ‘Cognac Sable’

My loves,

This eye shadow palette is probably the most I have ever spent on makeup, but I had to have it. I saw a girl wearing the most beautiful eye shadow and I just had to ask her what she was wearing. She told me that she was wearing Tom Ford’s ‘Cognac Sable’ Eye Colour Quad, all 4 colours. As soon as I saw her eye shadow I knew I had to have it.

Named “Best Eyeshadow for Olive Skin” for InStyle magazine’s “Best Beauty Buys”

IMG_9820IMG_9827“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, smoky eye, to a sultry 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.”


Now I don’t know about any of you but I don’t generally spend that amount of money on eyeshadow! But I have to say it was worth every penny. The pigment in this palette is out of this world! I wore all four colours together the other day and it looked incredible. It lasted literally all day and night long, without any creasing! I have to say I’m a little in love.

IMG_9832Cognac Sable has a coppery colour theme. The colours in this palette were picked so cleverly it actually blows my mind. They all compliment each other so well and can be played up or down depending on what look you are going for. You have a warm sandy gold with subtle shimmer with medium pigment, a warm copper that applies sheer with lots of glitter, a medium chestnut brown that is crazy pigmented with shimmer and finally a deep brown with shimmer undertones that is also highly pigmented.

IMG_9836The swatches don’t even give the palette justice. I’m going to do a full post on a Makeup Look with this palette so you can all see how freaking gorgeous it is! It’s great for women who have olive skin tone, with yellow undertones. Now I am not normally a fan of shimmery eye shadow, but this palette is so classy that the shimmer can be worn at anytime, anywhere!

Chic and soft…

What do you say my loves? Will you be as crazy as me and purchase this drop dead gorgeous palette?

Laurelle, xo
