Azure Sun

Tom Ford Beauty Azure Sun Cream & Powder Eye Color ($62.00 for 0.31 oz.) is contains a peachy, sparkly powder eyeshadow and a rich, teal cream eyeshadow. I’m a big fan of the wear of Tom Ford’s cream typically, but I found the shade included in the duo to be hard to use on its own (which limited the versatility of the product).

Azure Sun (Eye Color)

Azure Sun (Eye Color) is a light-medium peach with warm, brown undertones and a sparkling finish. I tried applying it with a dry as well as a dampened brush, and the coverage was similar but dampened application yielded more shimmer and seemed to require slightly less product for similar results. It had good pigmentation with moderate sparkle with slight fallout over nine hours on its own (but held on quite well when layered over the coordinating cream eyeshadow). The texture was denser and firmer with an almost wet-like feel to it, so flat, synthetic brushes worked best for application.

Azure Sun (Cream Color)

Azure Sun (Cream Color) is a dark, bluish-teal with a pearly, shiny finish. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was emollient and thin enough that it hard to achieve an even, opaque layer of product–it had a tendency to look a bit patchy on its own. Like most cream eyeshadows that suffer from patchiness on their own, it worked well as a base underneath the coordinating glittery top coat in the set or with other powder eyeshadows applied on top (actually enhanced the cool undertone and intensity of certain shades layered over it). It lasted for over 10 hours without fading or creasing (on its own).

Formula Overview

$45.00/0.17 oz. - $264.71 Per Ounce

The Cream Color for Eyes formula is supposed to be “ultra-pigmented” and “metallic” with a “creamy formula” that doesn’t “crease or smudge.” The majority of the shades I’ve tried in the range live up to those things–good pigmentation but can be applied sheerly (use less and/or apply with a fluffy brush) or kept opaque (a little goes a long way) with eight to twelve hours of wear (no primer). They’re blendable and dry down fast enough not to crease too easily while you’re working on them but not so quickly that they don’t budge. I did find that a couple of the new shades were more emollient than past shades and did have a longer dry down time and were harder to keep out of creases (in this review, that would be Siren Blue).

So, $62 US (or a ridiculous $80 Canadian) for a mediocre pair of shadows and one that is patchy? I think I’ll take another pass, if it’s all the same to you, Tom Ford! And while I’m griping – the name of his new fragrance – “F-ing Fabulous” ….. seriously? Since when is vulgarity either fabulous or elegant?

It’s the fourth photo (second swatch) in the slideshow for “Azure Sun (Cream Color)” – it is captioned as Cream Color over Eye Color. It is labeled “Tom Ford Beauty Azure Sun (Eye Color) over Azure Sun (Cream Color).”

I like the colour combination and the teal shade is always so beautiful, BUT this is not good enough for a Tom Ford price. Quite a few palettes have this teal shade, especially from UD.
Thank you for the review Christine.

I own the golden peach– which I love so much, and the naked bronze– which I find to be too dark and thus barely use. I will always regret not purchasing the now discontinued Midnight sea. I have not found any of the releases since those ones as appealing. I was crossing my fingers on these two new combos– thanks to your reviews, I will be saving and spending my money elsewhere!

I recently bought naked sea on ebay for 52$ give or take . It was authentic and I see there is another,,, just saying if you reeeeealy want it…….

Ah christine, you were so kind with your review! I bought this because I have and love all of tom ford’s eye duo s, but this one was just rubbish. I don’t know what black magic you used to get it to work, be cause on me, the colour applies very patchy, does not build well on itself , and never drys down/ sets. It is marginally better with the top coat, but even the top coat is not without its issues. It develops hard pan if you use your finger to apply, and is weak in pigmentation . I totally give this an F as it is for the most part unusable. This was an embarrassment for tom ford. Fyi, the other shade emerald Isle is the polar opposite, absolutely stunning and an a rating for me.

It definitely dried down on me, thankfully! It worked really well with powder eyeshadows on top (I tried Viseart’s) as a base, but it was unimpressive on its own. I didn’t notice any hard pan on either of the Eye Colors from the new duos, though, but I wasn’t using fingers to apply so that’s probably helping!

Disappointed this did not perform as well as the ones in the pas summer collections did. And for $62?
