Tom Ford Beauty Videotape is a slightly warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a semi-matte finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $36.00 and contains 0.04 oz.
Tom Ford Beauty Videotape Private Shadow ($36.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a dark, red-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, slightly drier, dustier texture that did not apply that well to bare skin. It was kinder to my lids using primer, where the eyeshadow appeared smoother and more "melted" on the lid. This shade blended out fairly easily on bare skin and stayed on well for seven and a half hours.

Tom Ford Private Eyes come in a wardrobe of thirty decadent shades. They feature five distinct finishes—suede, ultra-suede, paillette, vinyl, and sateen—and the color, style, and perspective that define the Tom Ford look. Encased in luxurious, clutch-sized mirrored compacts, each single shadow—from demure nude to unabashed bold—becomes a discrete expression of unadulterated color. These highly pigmented shades are long-wearing and resist creasing for a flawlessly polished look that lasts.
