Tom Ford Seductive Rose Eye Color Quad
Tom Ford Seductive Rose Eye Color Quad

Tom Ford Seductive Rose Eye Color Quad ($78.00 for 0.35 oz.) consists of four shades–a light pink, medium pink, mauve, and darker plum.  Though at a glance, it seemed like a cool-toned palette, it almost leans somewhat warm.  I think it’s on the fence such that cooler undertones will find it leans cooler on them, and then someone with warmer undertones (like myself) will find their skin tone pulls the warmth out of some of the shades in this palette.  The colors complement each other, and there is some variety in finish, they all run on the shimmery side–there are no mattes here, which may be a deal-breaker for some.  All but the sparkly shade wore well for almost eight and a half hours, while the sparkly shade didn’t have fading or creasing either, it did have minor fall out.  It’s a nice offering, but it’s not perfect, and at this price point, there’s no reason it shouldn’t be.

Seductive Rose #1 is a pale, light pink with cool undertones and a frosted finish. It had so-so color payoff–there was noticeable sheerness–but the texture was soft and smooth. MAC Fair Sex (LE, $15.00) is similar. Tom Ford Beauty Enchanted #1 (LE) is lighter, whiter. MAC Joy & Laughter #1 (P, $21.00) is similar. MAC Seedy Pearl (P, $15.00) is a bit darker. MAC Maribu (LE, $32.50) is similar. Dior Aurora #3 (LE) is also similar. See comparison swatches

Seductive Rose #2 is a light-medium rosy pink with subtle warm, yellow undertones and a frosted, almost metallic, finish. It had excellent color payoff, while the texture was soft, buttery, and very dense–almost felt like a cream. Too Faced Marshmallow (LE) is less frosted, darker. Too Faced Taffy (LE) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Tease #5 (P) is a bit lighter. MAC Pinkluxe #2 (P) is more glittery. theBalm Safe Bet Annette (P, $16.00) is very similar. MAC Love Power (LE, $18.50) is a cream product. Make Up For Ever #303 (P, $20.00) is not quite as warm-toned. See comparison swatches.

Seductive Rose #3 is a warm-toned mauve with a metallic, sparkling finish. It had a glittery texture, and it felt almost emollient to the touch. It had fairly good pigmentation. When worn, I had minor fall out but the fall out was surprisingly less than I would expect. Too Faced Mauvelous (LE) MAC Circa Plum (LE, $21.00) is pinker. MAC Neo Nebula (LE, $21.00) is a bit darker, warmer. Urban Decay Bordello (P, $18.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Seductive Rose #4 is a deep plum with subtle warm undertones and a pearly finish. It had rich color payoff, and the texture was soft, finely-milled, and blendable. This was the best shade of the four. Tarina Tarantino Deep Dahlia (LE) is less pearly. MAC Hyperviolet (LE, $18.00) is darker, cream, no shimmer. Le Metier de Beaute Fig (P, $30.00) is similar. Inglot #446 (P, $6.00) is purpler. See comparison swatches.

    O..m..g…. I NEEEEEEEEED it…………………..

  5. Sasha

    I hadn’t been very impressed with this one in online swatches but it does give a lovely rosey glow on. Did you also purchase Orchid Haze for review? That’s the one I’ve heard the most raves about.

  6. Brittany

    this whole pallette is lovely…#4 is ESPECIALLY gorgeous, though! wow! wow! wow!

  7. Es una paleta ideal para ojos verdes.

  8. This is a gorgeous quad!!

  9. I love the colors, but it’s not worth 78$ IMO.

  10. Whenever I see the word ‘rose’ attach to makeup these days, I can’t help but check it out and I thought the shades here are gorgeous (1 & 4 favorites). But you are totally right about the price, this is just way too much for 4 eyeshadows for. For now, I’m sticking with Naked3 of which I’m waiting to finally land on my doorstep soon.

    Thanks for great swatches Christine

    x Donah

    how does SEDUCTIVE ROSE #4 compare to mac 100 strokes?

  12. pretty!! for 40 or so…. but mac and inglot have great offerings to chose from for far less. i would spend that on the she wolf palette but not this one.

  13. Sarah

    I have this quad and the colors are beautiful but I just hate that glitters gets all over my face when I try to wear this. Do you have any suggestion for preventing a glittery mess when using this?

    • I don’t get too much fall out with this one (some sparkles, but it’s not noticeable by others, I’d say) – the best thing is to use a cream eyeshadow base or anything that’s slightly tacky.

  14. Susan Dowman Nevling

    Beautiful on you! Love it but money going elsewhere this month. Maybe January with Christmas money.

  15. Mahala

    My husband bought me this as a gift and it is lovely! I agree the pale shade is somewhat sheer or veil like and there is a little fallout from the glittery shades. The sheer shade layers beautifully over powder or cream eyeshadows and the glittery shades are a great texture for less youthful skin!

  16. This is beautiful! Love the #3 shade.

  17. I love the colors…but not for 78$. It’s a bit pricey to not be perfect, as you noted.

  18. Avatar of An An

    Really loving your eye look! And the shades fit each other nicely. But that price tag….. =(

  19. I love that 4th shade! It reminds me of an Inglot shadow I have.

    Christine, could you please do a review of the Tom Ford quad in Burnished Amber? I’d love to see your opinion as I trust your reviews the most :)
