Tom Ford Beauty Violet Argente Acqua Metal Shadow ($46.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium bronze with strong,w arm undertones and a metallic finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer--and a little went a long way. When I tried to sheer it out, the color appeared a bit softer but was still fairly pigmented! The swatch above is taking the barest dab and diffusing it with my fingertip and not having luck getting it to sheer out. It applied similarly onto my lid--I couldn't really get it to sheer out in a meaningful way. I would never describe it as a "translucent" product--it's intense!
The consistency was lightweight, thin but not too runny, and felt cool as it initially applied. It applied fairly evenly, and I was able to blend out the edges without much effort. The issue I had with it was that it had a tendency to crease as it was drying down due to it taking a longer time to set, though once it locked into place, it didn't crease further. I felt like the shimmer/finish of this shade also emphasized my lid texture and appeared thicker in places. There was slight flaking of product after eight hours of wear.
