Tom Ford Midnight Sea Cream & Powder Eye Color
Tom Ford Midnight Sea Cream & Powder Eye Color

Tom Ford Midnight Sea Cream & Powder Eye Color ($60.00 for 0.31 oz.) contains a sparkling, bluish-teal powder eyeshadow paired with a smoky taupe-brown cream eyeshadow, which you may know has Spring 2015, as it was released previously. The performance of the powder eyeshadow was better in this duo than the other two, and the cream eyeshadow performed as well this time as it did previously–that is to say, excellently. Layered, the two create a dirty, blackened blue-teal with a very sparkly, metallic sheen.

Midnight Sea (Eye Color) is a light-medium, bluish-teal with a sparkling, metallic finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that applied very smoothly and evenly. The sparkle seemed more integrated and a bit finer in this eyeshadow compared to the ones in the other duos. The consistency was still thin, almost wet/cream-like, and blended well on the skin without losing its base color. I didn’t have issues with fall out during application, but I did have some noticeable fall out over time. It lasted for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly on me. Colour Pop Ibiza (P, $5.00) is brighter, darker. Colour Pop Pop Rocks (P, $5.00) is darker, less metallic. Anastasia Venezia (LE, $12.00) is darker. Urban Decay Freeze (LE, $18.00) is warmer, less sparkly. Make Up For Ever D236 Lagoon Blue (P, $21.00) is brighter, darker. Makeup Geek Glass Slipper (P, $5.99) is lighter, less sparkly. Urban Decay Fringe (P) is less sparkly, darker. theBalm #23 (P, $6.50) is less sparkly. Tarina Tarantino Ozma (LE) is darker, less sparkly. Makeup Geek Mermaid (P, $5.99) is less sparkly. Disney by Sephora Caspian Sea (LE) is darker, less sparkly. Tom Ford Beauty Emerald Lust #3 (LE) is darker, less sparkly. Urban Decay Deep End (P, $18.00) is darker, less sparkly. Inglot #415 (P, $6.00) is brighter, less sparkly. Inglot #413 (P, $6.00) is less sparkly. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Spring 2015 is a blackened, smoky taupe-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a silver-ish pearly shimmer. It’s one of the more complex shades that have been released in this formula, and I find it looks different depending on the opacity level and what you pair it with. It wore well for twelve hours without creasing or fading, and it applied with even, smooth, opaque color coverage with ease. Hourglass Atmosphere #5 (P) is a powder, less shimmery. Giorgio Armani #08 (P, $32.00) is a powder, less shimmery. MAC Trusted Instinct #5 (LE) is cooler-toned, powder. MAC Pepper (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned, less shimmery, powder. Burberry Graphite (No. 28) (P, $29.00) is powder, less shimmery, darker. Stila Substance (P) is lighter, powder. Chanel Tisse Gabrielle #4 (P) is powder, less shimmery. Chanel Tisse Gabrielle #1 (P) is powder, cooler-toned. Makeup Geek Moondust (P, $5.99) is lighter, warmer, powder. Dior Aventure (081) (P, $31.00) is grayer. MAC Bossa Blue (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned, powder. MAC Legendary Black (DC, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, powder. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Naked Bronze Cream & Powder Eye Color
Tom Ford Naked Bronze Cream & Powder Eye Color

Tom Ford Naked Bronze Cream & Powder Eye Color ($60.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a mix of glittering gold and warm, coppery bronze, which you may know as Spice (previously released on its own). When the gold eyeshadow is patted over the bronze cream eyeshadow, you get a lighter, more sparkly bronze that has a more subdued red undertone. They work well together as shades side-by-side or layered. The formula of the sparkly eyeshadow suffers from some fall out during wear, and it could be a bit more pigmented in its base color, while the cream eyeshadow is fantastic with rich color payoff and a smooth, blendable, long-wearing formula.

Naked Bronze (Eye Color) is a subdued, light-medium dirty gold with lighter champagne gold sparkle and flecks of glitter. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with plenty of sparkle that actually transferred to the lid with minimal fall out as the texture was thin, almost cream-like, and held together well. This type of texture really helps the sparkly bits to bind with the colored powder and then stick to the lid. I did see some fall out over time while I wore it, though. The color lasted well for nine hours before creasing slightly. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #2 (LE) is lighter. Urban Decay Disco (LE, $18.00) is less sparkly. Makeup Geek Magic Act (P, $9.99) is less sparkly. Colour Pop Get Lucky (P, $5.00) is darker, less sparkly. Chanel Rêve d’Orient #3 (LE) is less sparkly. Too Faced Honey Pot (LE, $16.00) is less sparkly. Sleek MakeUP Gold Souk (LE, $9.99) is very similar. Dior Golden Snow #2 (LE) is more sparkly. MAC Retrospeck (P, $16.00) is sheerer. Chanel Vision (LE, $36.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Spice is a medium-dark, copper bronze with warm, red undertones and a pearly sheen. It was intensely pigmented; a little goes quite a way, so I highly recommend using less than you think and then building if you end up needing more. If you want a sheerer wash of color, I would apply to the center of the area with a tiny amount, then blend and diffuse to a sheerer layer. I think it is easy to wear it totally opaque or sheer it out, but as it is quite pigmented, it is easier to wear it opaque. On me, it wears for nine and a half hours before creasing (actually, it wore a little longer than the last time I tested it–by a half hour). MAC Bao Bao’s Jewels #3 (LE) is powder, lighter. Colour Pop Deluxe (P, $5.00) is less shimmery. Colour Pop On the Rocks (P, $5.00) is less red-toned. Kat Von D Depeche (LE) is a powder. MAC Mortal #4 (LE) is lighter, powder. Make Up For Ever ME654 Cauldron (P, $21.00) is a powder. Make Up For Ever I662 Amber Brown (P, $21.00) is lighter, powder. Make Up For Ever I634 Praline (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, powder. Urban Decay Smog (P, $18.00) is a powder. Urban Decay Baked (P, $18.00) is a powder. Inglot #405 (P, $6.00) is a powder. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Golden Peach Cream & Powder Eye Color
Tom Ford Golden Peach Cream & Powder Eye Color

Tom Ford Golden Peach Cream & Powder Eye Color ($60.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a duo that features a sparkly, peachy-brown eyeshadow paired with a rose gold cream eyeshadow (which is a repromote of Pink Haze). They’re designed to work together, layered or alone. Long-time readers will know that I love the Cream Color for Eyes formula, because it is exceptionally long-wearing (I’ve worn them as long as 16 hours on vacation in 110 degree heat), intensely pigmented, smooth, and blendable. The only downside is that the brand hasn’t seen fit to add the formula to their permanent range. The powder eyeshadow is very similar in feel and application as Tom Ford’s other sparkly shades in his various palettes, so it’s not as prone to fall out or sheerness as a traditional powder, glitter-filled eyeshadow as it is thinner and more cream-like so it all holds together better.

When you pat the sparkly eyeshadow over the cream eyeshadow, it turns the overall color less pink and more copper with a ridiculously sparkly, metallic finish that’s totally over-the-top–undoubtedly gorgeous, but it may be an effect that not everyone loves. The packaging is all plastic, whereas when the Cream Color for Eyes are released individually, they come in glass pots priced at $42, though the duo contains 0.03 oz. more of cream eyeshadow (0.24 oz. and 0.07 oz. for the cream and powder eyeshadows, respectively).

Golden Peach (Eye Color) is a medium-dark, peach-brown with lighter golden peach sparkle and shimmer. The texture is thin, almost wet to the touch, and very smooth, despite the high amount of glitter/sparkle in it. I found it to be consistent with Tom Ford’s glittery eyeshadows and other glittery eyeshadow formulas that are mostly powder but feel almost wet, so they tend to apply more smoothly with less fall out. I still get a minor amount of fall out over time (it’s not too noticeable, but it’s not fall out-free!) when used on its own, though it seemed to lock down better when patted over the cream eyeshadow. It wore well for nine hours without fading or creasing. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #7 (P) is lighter, less sparkly. MAC Natural Vigor #2 (LE, $21.00) is less sparkly. Makeup Geek In the Spotlight (P, $9.99) is lighter. MAC Gilded Thrill (LE, $21.00) is a cream product. MAC A Harvest of Greens #1 (P, $21.00) is less sparkly. Charlotte Tilbury Champagne Diamonds (P) is less sparkly. MAC Phresh Out #2 (LE) is similar. MAC Day Gleam (P, $21.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Pink Haze (Cream Color for Eyes) is a medium-dark, rosy copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It is intensely pigmented where a little goes a long way–use less than you think–that goes on smoothly with really even color coverage. It’s blendable without sheering out or getting streaky, and if you want a sheerer look, you can just use less and blend it out from there. I didn’t notice any differences in color, consistency, or longevity between this and the standalone version. The color was still going strong after ten hours of wear.

Tom Ford Pink Glow Eye & Cheek Compact
Tom Ford Pink Glow Eye & Cheek Compact

Tom Ford Pink Glow Eye & Cheek Compact ($95.00 for 0.47 oz.) is an indulgence, but it performs well across the board and everything works well together. The majority of the colors are on the dupable side, so some may find there are too many near-repeats to make it a worthwhile splurge. I’m a huge fan of Tom Ford’s blush formula–it’s my favorite–and constantly wish he would expand it (permanently!), and the blushes in here are gorgeous. I cannot express to you how glowing and luminous the effect of the two are, individually or layered together. The palette has strong, warmer undertones across all of the shades. The weakest performer was the glittery shade, which had some fall out, but the almost wet-like texture helped it apply with stronger coverage and less fall out initially than your traditional, more true-to-powder-form glittery eyeshadow.

Pink Glow #1 is a light, white-beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, silky-smooth consistency that blended well and wore well for nine hours on me. Guerlain Les Nuees #4 (LE) is less shimmery. Chanel Tisse Paris #2 (P) is less shimmery. MAC Just Gleaming (LE, $19.50) is warmer. LORAC Vanilla (LE) is similar. Make Up For Ever S522 Pinky Nude (P, $21.00) is warmer. Make Up For Ever I526 Pearl Beige (P, $21.00) is pinker. Make Up For Ever I514 Pink Ivory (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. NARS Andromeda (P, $29.00) is brighter. MAC Apricot Blend #1 (LE) is similar. Maybelline Pure Nude (80) (LE, $6.99) is a cream product. Too Faced Champagne Truffle (LE, $16.00) is similar. Urban Decay Polyester Bride (P, $18.00) is more glittery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Pink Glow #2 is a sparkling golden beige with a lot of glitter. It had a thin, almost wet, cream-like consistency that applied without a lot of fall out with semi-opaque coverage. The texture is similar to other glittery shades in the Tom Ford range, but it is also similar in feel to formulas like Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadows, MAC Pressed Pigments, and Charlotte Tilbury’s sparkle eyeshadows. It wore well for nine hours without creasing, but there was some fall out over time. Sleek MakeUP Gold Souk (LE, $9.99) is darker. Dior Rivage #4 (LE) is less sparkly. Dior Golden Snow #2 (LE) is similar. Dior Golden Flower #3 (LE) is lighter. MAC 2x Dare #2 (LE) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Pink Glow #3 is a plummy red with warm, orange-red undertones and pink shimmer that gives it a soft, frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a really soft, dense, and creamy consistency that applied and blended beautifully. It wore well for nine hours. Makeup Geek Showtime (P, $9.99) is darker, browner. Colour Pop Drift (LE, $5.00) is a cream product. Anastasia Sangria (P, $12.00) is pinker. MAC Trusted Instinct #3 (LE) is darker. MAC Plummed (LE, $16.00) is slightly darker. MAC It’s Not Easy Having a Good Time (LE, $21.00) is similar. Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #3 (P) is darker. Dior Trafalgar #3 (P) is brighter, lighter. Make Up For Ever I824 Ocher Pink (P, $21.00) is warmer. NARS Desdemona (P, $29.00) is darker. Urban Decay Gash (DC, $18.00) is darker. MAC Crimson Tryst (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Cranberry (P, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery. Le Metier de Beaute Fire Lily (P, $30.00) is darker, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Pink Glow #4 is a light-medium, peachy-pink with a strong, yellow gold sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a really smooth, buttery texture that blended nicely on the skin. Despite having a lot of sheen, it didn’t emphasize pores. On me, it wore well for ten hours. Benefit CORALista (Palette) (P, $28.00) is more orange, darker. MAC New Romance (P, $27.00) is darker, pinker. Makeup Geek Romance (P, $9.99) is darker, pinker. MAC Stereo Rose (2014) (LE, $30.00) is more orange. Benefit Sugarbomb (P, $28.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Pink Glow #5 is is a medium-dark, plummy pink with warm undertones and a soft, luminous sheen. It had rich color payoff where a little goes a long way–I tapped the merest amount on my brush onto my cheek and was able to blend that bit out and that was it! The texture was buttery and dense, but very, very smooth and incredibly blendable. The finish is luminous and gives the skin a sheen that doesn’t emphasize its natural texture. It was still going strong after ten hours of wear. Tom Ford Beauty Contour (Softcore) (LE, $55.00) is warmer. MAC Corol #2 (LE, $21.00) is lighter. Sephora + Pantone Universe Bridal Rose (LE) is more shimmery, lighter. NARS Soulshine #3 (LE, $30.00) is redder, brighter. NARS Realm of the Senses #2 (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery. theBalm Cabana Boy (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned. bareMinerals The Indecent Proposal (P, $22.00) is cooler-toned, more muted.

Tarte Poppy Picnic Amazonian Clay Eye & Cheek Palette
Tarte Poppy Picnic Amazonian Clay Eye & Cheek Palette

Tarte Poppy Picnic Amazonian Clay Eye & Cheek Palette ($38.00 for 0.41 oz.) contains six eyeshadows and one blush housed in a rectangular-shaped palette. It’s a warmer-toned set of matte neutrals paired with a frosted pink-coral blush. The colors work well together, and they were usable without primer, but Tarte’s formula here is one that will benefit from having the smoothness of a primer for the color to adhere to, for both better color payoff as well as easier blending, and then of course, longevity. Also, interesting thing to note is that this is priced the same as the Showstopper palette, but Poppy Picnic contains a lot less (0.41 oz. vs. 0.73 oz.).

Glisten is described as a “golden peach pink.” It’s a pink-coral with golden shimmer and a frosted finish. The texture was thin and dry, where the shimmer particles sometimes separated from the base color. If patted into the skin with a firmer blush brush to start, it helped a lot to keep the color together. It had semi-sheer color payoff that I could only build to semi-opaque coverage. The color lasted for seven hours on me, which was surprisingly short (especially since it’s supposed to last twelve!). This shade is also available individually in the permanent range, which performed better for me, when I reviewed it three years ago. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Summer Breeze is described as a “cream.” It’s a light, yellowed beige with a matte finish. It had decent pigmentation with a soft, silky consistency that was just a smidgen powdery. It lasted for seven hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Sweet Tea is described as a “tan.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. The texture had a silkiness to it that made it very blendable, even on bare skin, and it had mostly opaque pigmentation. It started to crease after seven and a half hours of wear. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Ice Cream Cone is described as a “chocolate.” It’s a blackened brown with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, but the texture was slightly thin so it needs the help of a primer to go on smoothly and blend evenly. It stayed on for seven hours for me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Barefoot in the Grass is described as a “nude.” It’s a light-medium peach with strong, orange undertones and a matte finish. It’s a bit powdery, but it applies fairly smoothly and blend well. It had decent to good pigmentation. On me, it creased after seven hours of wear. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Peach Poppy is described as a “peach.” It’s a softened orange with a matte finish. The texture was thin and a little powdery, so it was prone to sheering out and only had semi-opaque pigmentation. It lasted for seven hours on me before creasing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Picnic Basket is described as a “brown.” It’s a dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had decent color payoff but was a little powdery, so it didn’t adhere as well to bare skin. It was buildable, though, and was fairly blendable when I used it. On me, it started to crease after seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette
Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette

Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette ($38.00 for 0.73 oz.) is a new, limited edition round compact that features six eyeshadows and three cheek products. It’s a decent to good eyeshadow palette, and though none of the shades are particularly unique, it may be nice for travel. The one thing to keep in mind is you may need to take your own brow bone/highlighter shade, as the cheek highlighter is pretty over-shimmered relative to the finishes of the eyeshadows. I think last year’s Rainforest After Dark palette was better coordinated, though, as the really warm-toned blush doesn’t complement the eyeshadow shades as well as it could. The quality is about the same, and I think if you normally use primer and like the colors included, you may really enjoy the palette. Most of the shades wore a little shorter on me, which brought down the overall rating.

Fame is a brightened pop of medium orange with warm, reddish tones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff with what seemed like a soft, silky consistency in the pan, but it wasn’t as blendable as it could have been in action. Though Tarte touts the wear of the formula at twelve hours, it lasted for eight and a half hours on me.
See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Park Ave Princess is a dark brown with subtle, yellowish undertones and a semi-matte finish. You can find this in their permanent range as well, and if you have more than a handful of Tarte palettes, you probably have it in another palette as well! It had good pigmentation with a lightly powdery texture that was blendable on the skin and wore for eight hours. I feel like every version I have of this product is a little different than a past version; the one in this palette is a bit darker and less warm/red. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Champagne Pink is a brightened, pink-tinged white with a metallic sheen. It had a really soft, blendable consistency that yielded great pigmentation that could be applied easily on the skin. I recommend applying with a very feathery brush (I used a fan brush), as it can emphasize pores. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Showstopper Copper is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and silver sparkle. It had good pigmentation with a silky texture that ran thin but was still blendable and easy to work with. It lasted for seven hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Go for the Gold is a softened, dirty gold with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was slightly dry and thin, which gave it a semi-opaque result on the skin, while it had a tendency to sheer out further when blended on bare skin. It lasted for six and a half hours before creasing. This was the kind of eyeshadow that greatly benefits from a primer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

You’re a Natural is a muted, peachy-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had decent to good color payoff that had a soft, silky texture. It could get a smidgen powdery in the pan, but it applied evenly and blended well on the skin. On me, it started to crease after seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Steel the Scene is a medium-dark, taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, buttery texture that was really easy to blend on the eye. It wore well for eight hours before I noticed slight creasing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Rose to the Top is a darkened, rosy copper with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, blendable texture that was dense and creamy. The color lasted for eight hours before creasing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Dim the Lights is a deep, dark brown with neutrla-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It is more pigmented than it appears in the swatch, but the texture is a little powdery and doesn’t stick as well to bare skin, though it was buildable enough when I was using it on my eye in practice. It was fairly blendable and stayed on for seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
