TFX7

Tom Ford Beauty TFX7 Shadow Extreme ($36.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a deep purple with subtle, cool undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation but did not build up well. It might appear dry in the swatch, but it was actually too slippery so the pigment did not go on smoothly and resulted in a more uneven layer of product, though the sparkly bits seemed to adhere better as a result. It was hard to apply this one in a flattering way without patting it on top of another eyeshadow to add sparkle. It lasted for eight hours with slight fallout.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.03 oz. - $1200.00 Per Ounce

The formula is split into two finishes--metallics (Foil) and glitters (Glitter)--and the performance depends largely on the finish. In general, the formula is supposed to "glide" on with an "ultra-thin, water-resistant gloss of color onto the lids." Though each compact seemed to be the appropriate size for a standalone eyeshadow, they only contain 0.03 oz. a pop, which made them some of the smaller single eyeshadows on the market. There were some really lovely shades but enough inconsistency that for the price point, it never amounted to being an impressive range.

The Foil finishes have a softer, more yielding powder base that have moderate to high shine (some are actually metallic, some are more pearly) with better color payoff, easier application, and better wear. The Foils tended to be creamier and smoother with better adhesion and blending on the lid, though there were a few shades that seemed to have too much slip and a tendency to go on unevenly or blend out unevenly during application. For the most part, though, the Foils were good eyeshadows and were easy to work with.

The Glitter finish shades are supposed to have "micronized glitter" and find that they don't really work as well as intended. They have more powdery base colors and larger flecks of micro-glitter, so that they tend not to bind as well and result in fallout during application or get lost in a brush. I tried applying with fingertips but the majority (like 90%!) of the glitter sticks to the fingertips and doesn't budge. Due to the more powdery base, they did not work particularly well with a dampened brush either. Your best bet would be to pat them on top of a cream eyeshadow or tacky base.

TFX8

Tom Ford Beauty TFX8 Shadow Extreme ($36.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with subtle cool undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was smooth to the touch, almost cream-like, but had a moderate amount of slip that I felt made it harder to apply evenly and smoothly to bare skin as the color moved around as I tried to blend it. It had semi-opaque color payoff, and I was only able to get it to full coverage if I applied it with fingertips and avoided blending it. This shade stayed on well for nine hours on me.

TFX9

Tom Ford Beauty TFX9 Shadow Extreme ($36.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a deep, navy blue with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff with a smooth, moderately dense texture that was slightly creamy but wasn’t too slippery like some of the previously-reviewed shades were. It applied well to bare skin and blended out well. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me.

TFX10

Tom Ford Beauty TFX10 Shadow Extreme ($36.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a dirty, blackened brown with warm, olive undertones and flecks of green and gold sparkle. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a smooth, moderately dense consistency that wasn’t too stiff to work with. The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin and had minimal fallout over an eight-hour wear time.

TFX11

Tom Ford Beauty TFX11 Shadow Extreme ($36.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a deep, emerald green with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had good color coverage that applied well to bare skin with even, smooth application. The eyeshadow felt lightly creamy with moderate density and good blendability. It wore well for nine hours on me before creasing faintly.

TFX13

Tom Ford Beauty TFX13 Shadow Extreme ($36.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with soft, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had excellent pigmentation in a single layer, while the consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too dense or too loosely pressed in the pan. This shade wore well for nine hours before I noticed slight creasing.

The first three are thankfully all well duped by much better performing shades than these. The next three, TFX10, 11 and 13 can be. And for way less cost. So *why* is TFX13 calling to me????

These look like ripoffs of NARS Night Series shadows (which were done better). Tom need to come up with something original.

Ugh.. I think I might have to have that navy blue TFX9. It has a smoky dark purple looking base that gives it a little more complexity than the dupes. The MUFE dupe is pretty darned close though.

These are beautiful jewel shades, but some of them are not as good as others. I guess if you wanted a particular shade and didn’t want to buy a palette, these would be good,
Gorgeous eye looks Christine.

The green, TFX11, reminds me so much of Colour Pop’s SSS Lit Year! Makes me want to go do a look with it right now!

TFx13 is a winner to me. Am also intrigued by the greens TFx10 and TFx11. Need to check the dupe list and the greens in my collection. Was considering TF’s Emerald Isle cream/powder duo but don’t want too much duplication. In football season, I’m sporting green and gold on Sundays (Go Packers!), so always on the lookout for good greens!
