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.

This one is super pretty!!! I missed out on Pink Haze, so I’m super happy this one was included as a re-promote. How do you apply these glitter shadows Christine? Do you use a brush or your fingers?

I do the same, it scares me to put my fingers in anything, even if they are clean. I fear the natural oils in your skin will create a film over time on the powders.

What brush do you use for the glittery/celestial powders?

A little disappointed that these are repromoted cream colors, mainly because I already have them all and so would effectively be paying all of that money just for the powder eyeshadow part of the duo. On the other hand I guess I am saving myself money if I pass on these duos altogether. Tom Ford’s summer collections are always so beautiful it’s going to be hard to resist! I plan on buying pretty much the rest of the entire collection though 🙂

Tom Ford seriously needs to get on making the Cream Colors a part of the permanent line. Pink Haze is so pretty. I love how it looks layered with Golden Peach

What, I was literally just yesterday looking up Pink Haze and regretting the fact that I didn’t get while it was available. Not sure I can justify the set though (I like the other shade, but at that price it has to be love I think) :/

Oy that’s so pretty. After seeing the sneak peek of the collection,
I was torn between this duo and the bronzey one. Decisions decisions…

I didn’t realize the wells themselves were plastic so I appreciate you mentioning that because I’m not sure how that compares to glass in terms of longevity. I’d worry about the plastic maybe cracking or not sealing properly and drying out the cream. Which, considering they have YET to make one of them permanent, is a real concern!

No idea about Tom Ford’s, but other cream products I’ve had in plastic have been fine. I definitely haven’t noticed any difference in longevity in glass vs. plastic that sticks out to me if that helps 🙂 It is more travel friendly, at least, since it’s lighter-weight and won’t shatter!

Pink Haze looks SO gorgeous, but I don’t think I want to spend $60 on both, since the cream is what’s really drawing my eye. If they offered it alone, maybe.

The colors are too warm for me and they look dupe-able, but they are gorgeous! For $60, I would prefer the cream shadow to be in glass packaging (like the original) as I think it will last longer and feel more luxe. And I would rather buy the cream shadow separately for $42 and just put my own powder shadows on top, as I don’t think the powder shadow is worth another $ 18

Well, it’s official. I looked at that first swatch and immediately thought – hey, that’s a dupe for that Makeup Geek eyeshadow that I have! And yes, the MG dupe for In The Spotlight was the second on your list. My first spontaneous dupe-detect!

When you said ridiculously sparkly over the top metallic, I was expecting something more OMG crazy. This is quite pretty and something I would wear – and I’m fairly conservative with my makeup. I might have to pick up Roulette from MG now….

I’m glad this is the only one I picked up. From the promo pictures, I recognized Spice and Spring 2015 and don’t want two. I don’t remember Pink Haze coming before.

Do the eye shadow / caps seem as secure as the single cream pot?

They twisted on/off just fine – didn’t notice anything amiss as far as everything holding together 🙂

Pink Haze has come out before – I reviewed in 2013!

Purdy~ But like other commenting, I already own Pink Haze. Which makes me wonder if the rest are repromo’s just with a powder shadow on top. Argh.

crap~ read your overview in earlier post from today. Indeed, just repackaged cream colours I already own. That part definitely sucks for hardcore TF fans who are bound to already have these gems in their stash. TF did come out with a black cream colour LE a number of years back (which I own), so I’m guessing the Oyster isn’t unique either.

Sigh..I know~ A unique new, not repromo’d, cream eyeshadow would have been most welcome. I essentially have these, just not the powder shadows on top. Rather unwelcome news actually.

I need advice!…I pre-sale ordered that one online. Do you think I should cancel or keep it for the gorgeous topper color? Do these dry? The Spring 2015 is my first TF cream shadow.

No biggie. I’m sure the powder is dupable well enough with MUFE or another brand. I was just looking at the swatch you have up and my MUFE shadows. I have D236 which looks pretty close. For $60, I could buy a lot of other things on my wish list and a good dupe. Thanks for knocking me off my Tom Ford high. That, the Sephora sale,&Ulta coupon all at was a bit much,lol. Life can get rough for beauty junkies sometime! We gotta support each other !:D

I pre-sale ordered all 4 of these not aware that they were repromotes.The only TF cream I own is the Spring 2015 color which made me fall in love with them. Honestly, I am questioning if I am going to try to cancel that one because I was the first one I was drawn to because of the mixture of the cream with the shadow over. I know they are a fortune and honestly, the timing of this collection pretty much has dwindled my budget for the Sephora sale to very little. I wish Tom For would make some of this stuff not LE. I mean cream shadows are staple products. Anther thing that s annoying me that To Ford seems to be doing is touting things as LE, then they come back permanent. This sis great for people who have missed out(like me) . But, for people who scrounge their bank accounts to get a $50 lipstick which winds up back in permanent 3 month later..whaaat..I also heard from the SA at Neiman’s that the Nude Dip palette is coming back! Christine,if you get a date on that,please post it ASAP. I drool over that each time I see one of your post!

I really think you skip it if you already have the cream eyeshadow 🙂

Another reader recently mentioned hauling Nude Dip, actually, so that could be true. I haven’t heard anything officially though!

Thanks Mary..I pre-ordered it on Sun., early am. Thanks for the heads up. I was doing my Sephora sale shopping and just though I would look and here it was! Yeah! 🙂

That golden-peach eye color is everything! It looks lovely on you Christine. I told myself I wasn’t going to order anything but I went ahead and preordered the eyeshadow and the compact.

Pink haze was on my wish list! Yay!! I can add it to my growing collection of cream colors… I’m obsessed! Now I am trying to hold out for your review of the cheek color…

I have a not-so-secret “meh” attitude towards Tom Ford’s shimmer eyeshadows… but I’ve never gotten any of his cream shadows and only ever hear outstanding things about them. I MAY be persuaded to pick some of these up this time around 😉

I’m not a fan of the regular powder formula he has in the quads overall, but the sparkly shade in this is just like the sparkly/glittery shades in those. I can’t recall if the quads you bought way back when had them in it!

I have been keen to try a TF cream eyeshadow (especially since the lovely Shameless Fripperies describes them as giving a glossy look even though they dry down and last), but I don’t know if I could shell out $60 for this when I know I can create a similar look using Colourpop Sequin and Tea Party (both of which I own).

I preordered Golden Peach and the Spring 2015 cream shadows and I’m so glad the peach got a great review! Had hoped for the best after loving the Platinum cream shadow.
Although I’m eagerly awaiting the delivery of myshadow, I’m very annoyed at the repromote without disclosure. I also don’t understand why Tom Ford won’t make some of his cream shadows permanent.

Hi Christine,

If Golden Peach and Pink Haze are the exact same product, I’m wondering why you gave Golden Peach an “A” grade instead of an “A+” grade? I was so bummed when you featured this the first time around and I’m so excited that I have the chance to get it this time.

Thanks in advance!!

Hi Lorie,

Are you looking at the right grade? There are three:

Golden Peach – this is the duo as a whole, which means the grades are an average of the components, rounded up/down
Golden Peach (Eye Color) – this is the powder eyeshadow’s score
Pink Haze – this is the cream eyeshadow and it is A+, same as the single of it!

Ah, sorry for the confusion Christine! I read it wrong.. This is what happens when I get super excited and skim through. Thanks for your thorough reviews as always. I can’t even tell you how many things that I’ve bought as an educated consumer because of you!

Just want to pass along that I confirmed with Cliff at Bergdorf Goodman that the cream color within Golden Peach IS NOT the same as Pink Haze. I don’t have the new set in front of me so you can take this with a grain of salt but the team at Bergdorf have confirmed these are two different shades with Pink Haze more blue-based pink and Golden Peach more warm, golden rather than pink.

Hi Dawn,

I discovered it on my own because I own both and looked at the two products together, swatched side-by-side (see the included swatch in this post), and then I double checked with with Tom Ford’s corporate office. Having owned the original, Pink Haze was never blue-based; it’s kind of like “rose gold” if you had to really trim down the description, but I would never describe it as blue-based or cool-toned – it is very warm and coppery.
