Tom Ford Lilac Dream Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Lilac Dream Eyeshadow Quad ($80.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a set of cooler-toned shades that range from pink to purple. Two of the four shades didn’t do so well, and the other two had minor issues (none were perfect, unfortunately). I think this quad in particular really is incapable of being used with decent results without a good primer (and adhesive base, if you want to use the glittery shade), whereas most of Tom Ford’s quads I think can be used without a primer (of course, a good primer will always improve your results!).

Surratt Beauty Scandal Eyes Prismatique Eyes

The following was previously written for my first review on this formula, as all three I tried were very consistent in performance: Surratt Beauty Prismatique Eyes ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a two-part compact that twists to reveal a glittery, more powder-like eyeshadow on the lower level, and then on the upper level, the lid twists off and reveals a cream eyeshadow. The brand states that the cream eyeshadow is a long-wearing, “water-proof shadow base” that can be used underneath the glittery eyeshadow or as an eyeliner. The glittery eyeshadow is called a “prismatic top coat.” The two only work well when used together, but neither works that well alone. Together, they’re pretty, but the cream eyeshadow is fussier than ideal for a cream-based product, so blending and getting even coverage were quite challenging.

Clinique A Pink Honey Affair All About Shadow Palette

Clinique A Pink Honey Affair All About Shadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.41 oz.) contains eight shades of warm, pinky neutrals. Three shades are from other palettes (duo/quad/palette, actually), and then five are from the singles range. I half-hoped that this was going to be a cooler-toned neutral palette, but it ended up quite warm-toned overall. The All About Shadow formula is supposed to be long-wearing, crease-resistant, fade-resistant, and have “creamy colour [that] glides on in one smooth stroke.” The formula is more what you might associate with Clinique: subdued, sheerer, better for those who like exactly that type of application and look, but if you want intense coverage, you’ll want to look elsewhere. The colors have some overlap within the palette, which makes it easy to use and blend everything together, but it could be more contrasting and versatile.

Clarins Spring 2016 Ombre Iridescente Cream Eyeshadows

Clarins Ombre Iridescente Cream Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a cream-to-powder eyeshadow that is supposed to adhere well to skin, last long, and give “pure color.” The texture is lightly spongy, where it has give if you press against it, but it doesn’t have the wetness of your traditional cream eyeshadow. The texture is smooth, lightweight, and blendable, while color coverage was mostly opaque to opaque. The three I tried lasted between seven and eight hours on me. You’ll notice that Silver Ivory has come away from the edges of the pot, but it didn’t seem drier in texture compared to the others and pretty much performed similarly!

Tom Ford Last Dance Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Last Dance Eyeshadow Quad ($80.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a mix of gold, green, and a pop of glittering blue. Overall, all four shades had good or better color payoff, wore for eight hours (the glitter shade had fall out), and were easy enough to use. I wish the two more satin-like shades had a slightly less dusty consistency.
