Tom Ford Beauty TFX15 Shadow Extreme ($36.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a deep red with warm undertones and flecks of lighter pink glitter over a matte finish. I thought that if any brand could innovate in the glitter eyeshadow category, perhaps it would be Tom Ford at this price point, but I wasn't seeing it. The texture of the powder was denser and rather pigmented, but the glitter separated away from the base. There was a ton of glitter, so it did translate, but the product did have to be applied with a brush as fingertips were useless--all the glitter stuck to my fingertip and wouldn't transfer to my lid at all. There was a ton of fallout, nonstop, that it was really hard for me to test these as my eyes watered and felt irritated throughout the day, and there were a few instances where I just couldn't make it and my eyes were bloodshot.

TOM FORD SHADOW EXTRÊME is a light-reflective, long-wearing shadow that mimics the look of melted metal in two distinct finishes—micronized glitter, which gives a lustrous, opulent finish, while a bolder, shinier look is achieved with a foil finish. Longwearing polymers ensure each shadow glides an ultra-thin, water-resistant gloss of color effortlessly onto lids. Twenty clutch-sized eyeshadow singles, from shimmering sapphire and silver to fabulous fuchsia and lemon, are housed in a mini-mirrored compact, finished in reflective chrome tone packaging, a signature for the Extrême collection.
