Paradiso

Tom Ford Paradiso Cream & Powder Eye Color ($62.00 for 0.31 oz.) includes a sparkling, powder eyeshadow and a cream eyeshadow. I’m a huge fan of Tom Ford’s Cream Color for Eyes formula, as it is typically very pigmented, easy to work with, and long-wearing, but the sparkling Eye Color I’m often less enthusiastic over. The two products worked well together, but I would have preferred a more contrasting powder eyeshadow to pair with the cream eyeshadow to make it a more versatile duo. The cream eyeshadow was excellent–pigmented, long-wearing, blendable–while the powder eyeshadow was decent but could have been more pigmented and had less fallout over time.

Paradiso (Eye Color)

Paradiso (Eye Color) is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-sheer coverage when applied dry, and it was opaque when applied damp. The consistency wasn’t chunky, but I could tell that it was a sparkly finish, though it was still fairly smooth. It applied best with fingertips, flat brushes, and I did prefer to use with a dampened brush for best adhesion and opacity. On its own, the eyeshadow lasted for eight hours with some fallout.

Paradiso (Cream)

Paradiso (Cream) is a medium, rose gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It leaned pinker than the average “rose gold” eyeshadow. I suspected it was similar to Pink Haze, but it is a lot lighter and pinker (less copper). The consistency was smooth, creamy without being heavy, and it dried down fast enough that it did not crease while setting but I had enough time to blend and diffuse the edges. It applied with rich, opaque coverage and lasted for ten hours on me.

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).

Love this duo! It’s sooo pretty! Catch is that yet once again, all duped out in the powder department. I must *really* love my rose-gold and coppery pink shades, eh?

How interesting, Christine. I expected this shade to be too similar to Golden Peach to warrant the purchase. I wish they would have released it as a single vs as as duo. Might be worth swatching at the counter. Speaking of singles, I saw Pink Haze for purchase recently at Saks online.

I am really not a fan of Tom Ford’s new cream shadows I think the formula is a little more sparkly than the original formula. With having a powder shadow with a lot of sparkle you think he would avoid all that sparkle in the cream shadow.

I think this one is more sparkly than others before, but I don’t know if that’s really a new formula, just different shades!

I’m dying to try TF’s cream shadows, as Iv heard great things from fellow oily+hooded eyed people. But im so scared to waset money 😛

The cream looks quite good, the powder a lot less so. I found it a pity that MAC Paradisco wasn’t a dupe 😀

It’s a versatile shade and the cream eye shadow has a really great rating – but it is also a universal shade too – which means plenty of dupes. I do agree with you Christine that a more contrasting shade in one of the products would have added greater depth to an eye look.

These products look really nice! Always loved your blog! Very helpful reviews! Please check out my blog! I have worked super hard on it so far and would love you to check it out! masonjarsandmascara.com masonjarsandmascara.com masonjarsandmascara.com

First of all I love TF’s colors & palettes!
However, I find it really ironic that TF himself once criticized Bobbi Brown as “only making shades of brown” when all he seems to do is the same pearly ivory/peachy pink/rose gold/champagne/taupe-y purples combo with minor variations over & over. Granted that’s my FAVORITE color combo and it suits a wide variety of skin tones, but really TF? It’s getting a little tired & clichéd. And I’m not buying any B- shadows for TF prices.
