Gucci Tuscan Storm Magnetic Color Shadow Quad ($65.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a warm-toned, neutral palette. I thought it would be more neutral or even slightly cool-leaning, but it seemed rather warm in person. It’s decent to good, but it’s not perfect, and at this price point, the downsides hard to overlook–worsened by the fact that all four shades are rather dupable.

Tuscan Storm #1 is a light, yellowed gold with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, buttery texture that was just a smidgen powdery. It wore well for eight hours on me. LORAC Unlocked (P) is lighter. LORAC Sand (LE) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel #1 (P) is similar. Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #1 (LE) is slightly more beige. Makeup Geek Bling (P, $5.99) is similar. Dior Golden Flower #2 (LE) is similar. Tarina Tarantino Taurella (LE) is similar. Kat Von D Galore (LE) is similar. theBalm C1 (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. Chanel Mystere #2 (LE) is less shimmery. Disney by Sephora Charming (LE) is lighter. Disney by Sephora Sand in the Glass (LE) is similar. MAC Nylon (P, $15.00) is similar. MAC Dazzlelight (P, $15.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tuscan Storm #2 is a muted, medium-dark brown with a hint of gray and a pearly shimmer-sheen. It had so-so pigmentation, but it wasn’t fully opaque, though it was buildable on the lid, yet it always appeared lighter applied than in the pan. The texture was thinner, lightly powdery but blendable. On me, it wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. NARS Ursa Major (LE, $29.00) is darker. LORAC Khaki (LE) is less shimmery. theBalm Epic (LE, $16.00) is warmer. LORAC Navy #5 (LE) is lighter, cooler-toned. NARS Himalia (P, $29.00) is more shimmery. Too Faced Ska (P, $16.00) is darker. Tarina Tarantino Fantastical #4 (P) is cooler-toned, lighter. Wet ‘n’ Wild Naked Truth #4 (P, $2.29) is darker. Chanel Mystere #3 (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tuscan Storm #3 is a muted, medium-dark caramel brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture felt incredibly silky and smooth without being powdery. It blended easily on the skin and lasted for seven and a half hours. Makeup Geek Preppy (P, $5.99) is yellower. Tarte Hazelnut Bon Bons (LE) is lighter. Dior Cuir Cannage #3 (P) is darker. LORAC Sepia (LE) is rosier. Stila Individual (P) is lighter. Make Up For Ever M646 Latte (P, $21.00) is similar. Make Up For Ever M636 Cappuccino (P, $21.00) is darker. LORAC Lt. Brown (P) is cooler-toned. MAC Rose Cloud (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Kat Von D Glasswing (P) is lighter. Laura Mercier Café au Lait (P, $23.00) is darker. Makeup Geek Frappe (P, $5.99) is more shimmery. Too Faced Chocolate Milk (LE, $16.00) is similar. Inglot #357 (P, $6.00) is darker. Inglot #337 (P, $6.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tuscan Storm #4 is a deepened brown with warm, red undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, lightly powdery texture that felt a bit dry. The dryness made it a little harder to blend, though I think it wouldn’t be noticed if you normally use a primer. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Hourglass Monochrome #5 (P) is less shimmery. Tarte Bastille in the Night (LE) is lighter. MAC Collective Chic #3 (LE) is darker. LORAC Cocoa (P) is warmer. Dior Sundeck #5 (LE) is warmer. Chanel Seduction #4 (LE) is warmer. MAC Constructivist (P, $18.50) is a cream product. MAC Life’s Luxury (LE, $21.00) is a cream product. MAC Carbonized (LE, $15.00) is warmer. Bobbi Brown Cocoa Berry (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The market is already flooded with good quality neutral palettes at much more affordable prices, so I wouldn’t consider this one without an A rating. At $ 65, it would need to outperform a Burberry quad, which is only $ 60. There was SO much hype when Gucci launched their new makeup line, but I don’t think many of the products are living up to the hype or perform well enough to justify the high prices.

I need to go look for other Gucci reviews! I don’t think I’ve read many, lol! I don’t read a lot of reviews (I try to write/test prior, so I go in fresh!), but it felt quiet to me.

I’ve read some other reviews, wasn’t too impressed given the high prices. I think they kind of shot themselves in the foot – too much hype, super high prices, only sold at limited places or online (at that price, I would want to swatch in store), and they were going after customers of Tom Ford and Burberry, but those 2 companies have already established some really great product lines and a loyal following. I think it would’ve been better if they started with fewer products (so they can focus on quality and uniqueness) and made it more readily available, so they can build their reputation.

I think it would have been better to come out with less SKUs and made sure the majority were very good. Too many misses (or even so-so products when it comes to this price point) will likely put people off since it’s not worth the risk of a so-so product.

Wow. So disappointing, and at that $$$! I’m shocked. I’ve generally liked the singles. That Tuscan #2 is such a great color, and the look you put together is gorgeous.

I really like their singles! Maybe I am a tad biased – and I agree #2 is beautiful and looks like a single of theirs that I have. Frankly, as for products that can be duped, almost every product we see can be duped to a certain point if not completely.

I had been eyeing this one, but opted for Rose Quartz instead. It appears really really light; is that just because it’s a picture, or does it look that way in person? Would it work on darker skintones?

It is a lighter set of neutrals, other than the darkest shade! I think it may get lost on deeper skin tones, though medium-dark skin tones may find the matte brown to be a good blending/transition shade, too.

It seems to be like people were REALLY excited about Gucci’s makeup launch for about a weekend… then nobody really cared (I haven’t seen or heard anyone really talk about their stuff since). I’m used to the beauty community being fickle, always excited for the next big thing that’s just around the corner! But Gucci kind of came in and out really hard and REALLY fast!

I wonder if it’s just the scale of their launch? They have this massive product range, so it’s hard to know where to start, and then it’s only at a couple of retailers online and hardly any in person… and pricey.

Hardly surprising that I think this is GORGEOUS but, for the price, all the shadows would have to rate an A, in my opinion. Plus, this seems very dupe-able.

Pass! Way to pricey for this performance and nothing unique in the shades. They are pretty. So, if the performance had been A+ ,it may have been something to consider. I don’t see how a high end designer can put their name on something and it be so subpar with such a high price tag!

Hrm…. didn’t translate the way I expected. Seems rather pedestrian to me. No oompf. I have the single Sasso which will probably be the extent of my purchases from this line.

I’m honestly getting annoyed by these HE/Luxury clothing/accessory brands hopping onto the cosmetics train, and then not coming up with something unique or revolutionary, especially when so many of them are in the same “family” as well-known cosmetics brands. I’m not saying the colors have to be “exciting”, but an actual, complete cool-toned neutral palette would be nice to see.

Also, it seems a bit pretentious to me to shell out so much money for what essentially amounts to packaging/labels when I can’t afford the rest of the brands offerings. I can’t imagine paying more for such a dupeable products that cost more than my shoes, LOL! If it werw more unique, or completely stellar, it *might* be worth considering, but not with what’s been offered so far…

Some people prefer to spend more on one thing than another or none on some things, so I don’t think there’s a problem with purchasing a designer brand’s cosmetics but not their shoes, for example!

i’ve been hearing that these quads are good but for the price not that good…and you’re right dupe able! I’m so disappointed because i really wanted to try it but i think I’ll save my money for other things. I hear good things about the bronzer though! that is still on my bucket list.

do you know if any of the single shadows are in any of the quads?

I bought Autumn Fire, the one you already reviewed. I find that couture brand cosmetics do not live up to its name….even Chanel. I almost bought this one. According to all the places that sell this colors and some others…they are on back order. I think Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage delivers better.

I wanted to get this one when Gucci first debuted, but it was on back order, and I finally caved when I saw it on NM a few weeks ago! But now I regret that, haha.

These are another set of neutral. I do not have anything Gucci yet but I am afraid I will be on lookout for another product to come out.
