Soleil Neige (01)

Tom Ford Beauty Soleil Neige (01) Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that features a frosted white, sparkling light taupe, navy blue, and sparkly black-brown. Three of the four shades seemed to have larger sparkles (not quite glitter), and they packed more visible sparkle than I recall any other shade doing compared to past quads I’ve tested in the same formula.

Two of those three sparkling shades seemed marginally drier, slightly dusty, compared to the typical, more pearl-to-metallic finishes. The eyeshadows had good wear and were blendable, but the pigmentation was more buildable than it was rich unless applied with a dampened brush.

Soleil Neige #1

Soleil Neige #1 is a bright white with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had medium coverage applied dry, which is easier to discern in the angled swatch (you can see how much of my skin is covered–it looks sheerer straight-on), and opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. The consistency was smooth to the touch, dense without being stiff to work with, and sat well on my skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Soleil Neige #2

Soleil Neige #2 is a light, muted taupe with subtle, warmer undertones and flecks of silver sparkle over a metallic sheen. It had medium coverage applied dry, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, or it could yield opaque pigmentation in a single layer if applied with a dampened brush.

This shade had more noticeable sparkle to it, and as a result, I’d recommend applying it with a dampened brush to ensure coverage, blendability, and better adhesion of the sparkles. The consistency felt a little dry to me, dense like I’d expect of the formula, but it seemed to have more give. There was light fallout during application, and then there was a touch more during the eight and a half hours it lasted for.

Soleil Neige #3

Soleil Neige #3 is a blackened navy blue with cool undertones and a lightly sparkled finish. The eyeshadow had a smooth, denser consistency that wasn’t too firmly that it became stiff to work with, but there was no powderiness or tendency to have fallout during application.

While this shade had more sparkles to it, the texture didn’t feel dry and didn’t give me issues with any fallout like #2 did. It had good color coverage applied dry as well as with a dampened brush, but the latter application method gave the most intense results. This shade stayed on nicely for nine hours before fading visibly.

Soleil Neige #4

Soleil Neige #4 is a deep, blackened brown with subtle, cool undertones and a sparkling finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation when applied with a dry brush, and it was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. If applied with a dampened brush, it appeared slightly deeper, richer, and was fully opaque.

The texture was smooth to the touch without being powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan but did seem slightly drier compared to most of the shades I’ve tested in this formula. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Oh boy, I’m loving this quad’s shade selection so much for a wintry smokey eye. And then I see the grade. Just a B. For $88. I’m feeling very conflicted about it.
Now, I probably could get a similar look with CP Misunderstood Palette…. possibly?

This one is lovely too – I like the shade combinations, but it wasn’t quite as good as yesterdays in terms of quality. Beautiful eye look Christine.

Thank You Christine, this was on my purchase list. However, for $88.00 it is definitely a no buy. I expect at least an A. There is so many new makeups out there for me to buy. This one is bye-bye.

Oh my goodness, I love the look you’ve created, Christine. I’m partial to these shades, so I’ll attempt to recreate this one.

Stunning, elegant quad that feels like winter holidays. Love your eye look. Now for the cost vs rating. I felf like I crash landed. I must have dupes or close in my stash.

Beautiful eye look, Christine. It’s a little unclear to me – do you rate based on dry application, wet, or both? I love the color story and from the way it sound, this would perform better wet?

Presently, Tom Ford’s descriptions for the eye quads don’t indicate using them wet or damp (like at all), so they’re only rated on dry application – much like a lot of shimmer eyeshadows (in general) can be used dry as well as wet these days, the rating is based on what the brand markets them as. The brand doesn’t seem to distinguish between the formulas they use in the quads – the more traditional powder eyeshadow formula vs. the raised, more baked formula. Unfortunately, my memory is pathetic, so I don’t remember what the description was when they originally debuted the more baked formula – I do, however, routinely go and read through whatever is currently being used and rely mostly on that since it doesn’t make sense to rely on a description from years ago if the brand has changed it substantially!
