Tom Ford Golden Peach Cream & Powder Eye Color
Tom Ford Golden Peach Cream & Powder Eye Color ($60.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a duo that features a sparkly, peachy-brown eyeshadow paired with a rose gold cream eyeshadow (which is a repromote of Pink Haze). They’re designed to work together, layered or alone. Long-time readers will know that I love the Cream Color for Eyes formula, because it is exceptionally long-wearing (I’ve worn them as long as 16 hours on vacation in 110 degree heat), intensely pigmented, smooth, and blendable. The only downside is that the brand hasn’t seen fit to add the formula to their permanent range. The powder eyeshadow is very similar in feel and application as Tom Ford’s other sparkly shades in his various palettes, so it’s not as prone to fall out or sheerness as a traditional powder, glitter-filled eyeshadow as it is thinner and more cream-like so it all holds together better.
When you pat the sparkly eyeshadow over the cream eyeshadow, it turns the overall color less pink and more copper with a ridiculously sparkly, metallic finish that’s totally over-the-top–undoubtedly gorgeous, but it may be an effect that not everyone loves. The packaging is all plastic, whereas when the Cream Color for Eyes are released individually, they come in glass pots priced at $42, though the duo contains 0.03 oz. more of cream eyeshadow (0.24 oz. and 0.07 oz. for the cream and powder eyeshadows, respectively).
Golden Peach (Eye Color) is a medium-dark, peach-brown with lighter golden peach sparkle and shimmer. The texture is thin, almost wet to the touch, and very smooth, despite the high amount of glitter/sparkle in it. I found it to be consistent with Tom Ford’s glittery eyeshadows and other glittery eyeshadow formulas that are mostly powder but feel almost wet, so they tend to apply more smoothly with less fall out. I still get a minor amount of fall out over time (it’s not too noticeable, but it’s not fall out-free!) when used on its own, though it seemed to lock down better when patted over the cream eyeshadow. It wore well for nine hours without fading or creasing. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #7 (P) is lighter, less sparkly. MAC Natural Vigor #2 (LE, $21.00) is less sparkly. Makeup Geek In the Spotlight (P, $9.99) is lighter. MAC Gilded Thrill (LE, $21.00) is a cream product. MAC A Harvest of Greens #1 (P, $21.00) is less sparkly. Charlotte Tilbury Champagne Diamonds (P) is less sparkly. MAC Phresh Out #2 (LE) is similar. MAC Day Gleam (P, $21.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Pink Haze (Cream Color for Eyes) is a medium-dark, rosy copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It is intensely pigmented where a little goes a long way–use less than you think–that goes on smoothly with really even color coverage. It’s blendable without sheering out or getting streaky, and if you want a sheerer look, you can just use less and blend it out from there. I didn’t notice any differences in color, consistency, or longevity between this and the standalone version. The color was still going strong after ten hours of wear.
