Sun Worship

Tom Ford Sun Worship Cream & Powder Eye Color ($62.00 for 0.31 oz.) includes a glittery, powder eyeshadow in the top portion of the duo and then a cream eyeshadow housed in the bottom portion of the duo. The cream eyeshadow is supposed to be “ultra-pigmented” while the powder eyeshadow is supposed to “intensify eyes with alluring shimmer.” For those familiar with Tom Ford, the cream eyeshadow is the Cream Color for Eyes formula, which I’ve found to be pigmented, easy to use, and long-wearing, while the powder eyeshadow is comparable to the glittery eyeshadow often included in the brand’s eyeshadow quads, which tend to be sparkly/glittery with sheerer base coverage and can have minimal to some fallout. The two shades are so similar to each other that the major difference was in pigmentation and texture (cream compared to powder), but I felt like it was rather redundant to have them be that similar–I think the duos where the two shades have more notable color differences gives them reason to be layered and mixed for varying effects.

Sun Worship (Eye Color)

Sun Worship (Eye Color) is a medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry, and it was fully opaque when I used a dampened brush to apply the color to my skin. The consistency was smooth, slightly wet to the touch (at least, by feel, I don’t think it was actually wet) and blendable. I had some fallout when I blended the product, though, and later on, there was slight fallout while I wore it. This eyeshadow wore well for eight hours before fading (but had some fallout).

Guilt

Guilt is a medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. It had finer shimmer and less sparkle compared to the powder eyeshadow, but the two shades were very similar in overall tone and depth. The cream eyeshadow was slightly thinner and more emollient compared to other shades in the formula, which made it more prone to sheering out on the skin and was harder to build up coverage for opaque results. It was more medium in coverage than highly pigmented from my trials with it. The color wore well for nine hours before creasing on me. As far as I could tell, while it is not noted officially, this seemed to be the same as the Guilt cream eyeshadow released previously.

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).

Not for lack of having warm orangey golds in my stash, but I was hoping for better. It especially would have been nice to have had the cream base be much better in pigmentation and opacity to use as a one-and-done eyeshadow for summer.

The color is very pretty, perfect for light wash of color during summer, but you’re right, the 2 colors look almost identical to each other, and at $62 a pop, seems like a rip off

Yeah, I really think they should be more different OR the cream be more satin to matte and then have the powder add glitter.

Yeah I wasn’t in love with these like the past releases. The glitter is far too similar to the cream and makes almost no difference on. They’re still pretty but Touch in Sol, Milk, and countless others make far less expensive amazing cream metallics.

For $62 there should be no, or almost no fallout and the grade should be A+. Also the duo is quite dupeable.
Easy pass for me.

Ooo pretty! I may have to check this out when it arrives at our Nordstrom next week for Trend Event. The only thing I worry about is that TF sparkly eyeshadow makes my eyes itch. Is the sparkle part of this the same kind of rough texture as his powder eyeshadows with sparkle? What do you think, Christine?

Christine it seems that is all Tom Ford does is release products over and over again all his eye shadows were done before some for several years now. Maybe he throws a different powder eyeshadow on top but it is the same one on the bottom that has been released before if not several times. And then what he did with the blush there he uses the same names but they are different in formula and a little different in shades. He is suppose to be a creative genius? I think he is a financial billionaire genius who could sell anything with a high price over and over and get everyone to bite and make a fortune. He really should call it what it is a repromote with an added powder eyeshadow. I new that these were all the same eyeshadows all you have to do is look at it and you can tell I still picked up this one because I like guilt the first time and wanted it again. He did platinum & pink haze several times already which is nice for people who want to purchase it again or missed out the first few times nothing wrong with that but stop calling it something else as if it were a new shade.

Wow – these shades are identical – the only difference is the texture. Hmmm – not a stellar rating either. It is a gorgeous shade, but it is also pretty similar to the one you reviewed yesterday too.

I own Sun Worship & I love it; the cream shadow is beautiful it is a re release of Guilt which I also loved. They are all re releases with a powder eye shadow on top. The cream shadow is the exact same formula as platinum the shade just might not be right for everyone but I love the shade and the formula perfection.

I’m getting concerned that TF is so successful that they are taking their customers for granted by reducing quality at such high prices. The reformulated blushes are a miss. I stocked up on my favorites (frantic pink, savage, flush) and have enough for 3 years! I wouldn’t spend a penny on the new blushes – don’t care for the revised colors but more important they go on very patchy. as you mentioned, the new cream shadows are thinner. discontinued the cream blushes which I loved. not sure why they have changed so much. perhaps they should add a new eye shadow quad – with the same quality.I think they’re making all their margin on lipsticks.
