Tom Ford Lavender Lust Eye Color Quad ($78.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a pink and purple themed palette. Tom Ford’s eyeshadows have four finishes: “sheer sparkle, satin, shimmer, and matte.” They’re supposed to “offer a spectrum of intensity and effects” with “excellent adhesion.” Overall, it’s a good quad, though not without its imperfections. The sparkly shade does produce some fall out during wear, though it’s minimal, it’s something to note. The lightest shade is on the sheerer side, which may be right up your alley if you intend to use it as a highlight shade, but for those who wanted something more opaque, it will be a let down. The colors go well together, and it’s certainly a very a harmonious set of shades.

Lavender Lust #1 is a pinky lavender with white sparkle. It had fairly good color payoff, and the texture was soft, finely-milled, and smooth. This shade wore well (no fading or creasing) for nine hours but had some slight fall out over time. CoverGirl Blazing Purple (340) (P, $4.99) is a bit darker, less sparkly. L’Oreal With a Twist (LE, $7.99) is darker, purpler. Urban Decay Grifter (P, $18.00) is darker. Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #1 (LE) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Lavender Lust #2 is a medium-dark, smoky purple with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had very nice pigmentation and applied smoothly and evenly. It wore well without fading or creasing for nine hours. Urban Decay Voodoo (LE, $18.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Black Grape (P, $21.00) is more sparkly. Dior Constellation (864) #4 (LE) is similar, less metallic. theBalm Lavish Latoya (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Urban Decay ACDC (P, $18.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Lavender Lust #3 is a pale, lavender-tinted white with a pink iridescent sheen. It was semi-opaque in pigmentation, though the texture was incredibly soft and finely-milled. I checked it a few times, as it’s such a light shade that it can be hard to tell opacity against my skin tone, but it’s more opaque than sheer–there’s some translucency there, though. It seemed like it might be a satin finish. It wore well for almost eight hours but looked somewhat faded after nine hours of wear. Fyrinnae Unicorn (P, $8.25) is cooler-toned, lighter. MAC Digit (P, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Ready to Party (LE, $21.00) is more metallic. MAC Triple Impact (LE, $21.00) is more metallic, less pink. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur #1 (LE) is similar. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Datura (P, $14.00) is purpler. See comparison swatches.

Lavender Lust #4 is a dark, red-toned purple with violet and plum shimmer. It had a satiny finish, and it had decent color payoff, but the texture was noticeably drier than the other three shades–soft but dry. It’s a shade that I’d probably use damp more often than not. With a fluffy crease brush, the dryness wasn’t noticeable during application. Urban Decay Tornado (LE, $18.00) is darker. Le Metier de Beaute Matte Plum (LE, $30.00) is similar. MAC Highly Charged (LE, $18.50) is a cream product. MAC Grape (LE, $32.50) is brighter, warmer. See comparison swatches.

I think Tom Ford does the best quads EVER, but I remember I almost hated Golden Mink when I tested it out last year, seeing that so many raves about it. I just have Cognac Sable cause in my country it’s almost 100$ and I don’t have a regular income to purchase these amounted products, but I am sooo iin love with it that it seems enough on its own 🙂
I really wanted to get Cobalt Rush and Violet Dusk but those and Burnished Amber are discontinued I guess. I became sad especially about the disappearance of Cobalt Rush. I hope I get to find one when the time really comes! lol Cause now it seems like all his quads are cool toned and carry mostly greys and purples, which I don’t like that much.

I just pulled mine out to compare. I’d say the TF is on the “pinker” side, but they are quite similar (especially the darkest & lightest shades).

These are totally “my” colors, and as a result, I’m quite certain I could dupe this quad at 90+% accuracy. Besides, at nearly $80, I don’t find the effort to trek to a TF counter worth it. If I’m going to lay out the cash, the least a brand can do. Do is make their products accessible.

I love the variety of textures and tones, great for a quad, plus I’m always drawn to purples and pinks. It will be hard not to splurge on this beauty! 🙂 On the other hand, most of his quads are stunning…sigh…

Glitter is my middle name. I thought i would like this one and the other one, but I bought Orchid Haze instead. It is a warmer version of Enchanted. The glitter is almost clear. I am not usually a matte person. Hopefully Tom Ford will send Orchid Haze for Christine to review.

I don’t own any Tom Ford quads (or any other TF makeup in general), but I was starting to toy with the thought of getting Lavender Lust. I must say, I’m relieved that it’s not all that great lol. I understand it’s a lot of product, but I just can’t get myself to jump from $60 (Dior, Chanel, Guerlain) to $78 for an eyeshadow quad, considering that I’ll never use them up before they get too old… Phew!
