Emerald Isles

Tom Ford Beauty Emerald Isles Cream & Powder Eye Color ($62.00 for 0.31 oz.) consists of a sparkling, gold powder eyeshadow and a deep, forest green cream eyeshadow. This has to be one of the better coordinating duos I’ve seen from Tom Ford–there’s plenty of contrast between the two shades but they can be layered and blended into each other for a seamless gradient as their undertones are similar. Both products worked well for me with the cream eyeshadow being the real stunner between the two.

Emerald Isles (Eye Color)

Emerald Isles (Eye Color) is a light-medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation applied dry and wet with wet application just applying a smoother, more even layer of product with less work but the end result was very similar. The texture was smooth to the touch and felt almost wet. It wore well for eight hours on me with slight fallout over time on its own.

Emerald Isles (Cream Color)

Emerald Isles (Cream Color) is a deep, smoky green with warm, olive undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was smooth, creamy without being too slippery, and easy to blend out on the lid. It had rich color payoff that could be applied evenly in a single layer to be worn alone or buffed out as a base underneath other powder eyeshadows. It dried down fast enough to avoid getting into my fine lines and creases but didn’t feel like I had to work at warp speed. The eyeshadow showed no signs of fading or creasing after 10 hours of wear.

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).

The green is stunning! The gold is beautiful also…this is going on my wishlist. Would you say it performs as well as Platinum (the only TF I own)?

The cream eyeshadow received an A+, so it can’t really perform worse than any other shade since it received perfect marks! I am assuming you are solely asking for a comparison of the cream product?

This duo is spectacular! I could definitely see using it with Viseart Absinthe for a very intense green eye look, and you know I would do that if I get both. 💚

Ha ha ha, I grew up on a dairy farm and that looks like a very tiny and expensive cow pat in a jar 🙂

They do look lovely layered though!

What a gorgeous colour combination this is – I just love green and gold shades like these and wear them often. The green shade is so beautiful. Love it.

Im still on the fence— I have BB poison ivy — 90% dupe, so I think I will wait for your reviews on Pat McGrath’s small palettes!

The small palettes are lovely! Same wonderful formula as the large PMG palettes. La Vie en Rose is my favorite of the three but they’re all exactly the quality anticipated by PMG. I actually prefer the packaging on the smaller ones as the cardboard is nice, safe, and thick with great protection against drops.

I have a couple of these duos and overall didn’t love any of them. I can’t even remember which ones I have but anyway, I love the look of this and wish that one of the major department stores in Spokane had Tom Ford counters but they do not so will have to decide if I want to order on-line. I do love the shade enough to purchase it though so likely will order. I can never have too many green shadows.

This is so dramatic and beautiful. I don’t own any TF cream shadows A. because they are pricey and B. because they are all too warm and brown for me. But this…. this has the drama the Absinthe palette was missing. Not that I really wear drama that much. But it’s so stunning.

That green is GORGEOUS! I don’t wear too many greens, because I have green eyes, but this is so stunning I don’t think I can pass this up. I definitely don’t have a dupe in my stash, and I love these Tom Ford duos.

There is a swatch of the powder over the cream eyeshadow in the review! There is also a look where they are layered in the review. I’m not sure what more I can do!

I’m tempted. The green is just gorgeous and the gold is really pretty. Maybe it’s time to try one of these duos.
I love the look you did, beautiful!

This look is so beautiful on you! It reminds me of a smokey tourmaline crystal with a touch of gold; a nice take on jewel tones.
