White Suede

Tom Ford Beauty White Suede Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that includes a sparkling peach, pale pink-peach, darker brown, and bluish-gray. It was an interesting mix of shades due to the deeper gray included along the three, more warm-toned neutral hues, though the four shades came together cohesively. I found the gray eyeshadow to be less blendable and had slight fallout when I worked with the deeper brown hue. The shade I liked best was the soft peach, which was nicely pigmented and easy to work with, but the other three had room for improvement.

White Suede #1

White Suede #1 is a medium-dark peachy beige with subtle, warm undertones and flecs of silver sparkle. It had more of a slippery feel in the pan, almost like a cream-powder, that was thin and held the sparkles together better than a traditional powder eyeshadow would. It went on fairly evenly but was best applied by pressing and patting into place using a flat, synthetic brush; for better coverage, I’d recommend using it with a dampened brush or with a fingertip. It had sheer coverage applied one layer (and finally, I saw it noted, officially, as “sheer sparkle”) which was buildable to medium to semi-opaque coverage with a dry brush or mostly opaque coverage with a dampened brush. There was some fallout when I diffused and worked the edges, and then there was some more fallout over the eight hours it lasted for.

White Suede #2

White Suede #2 is a bright, pale pink-peach with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation that was just shy of full coverage, but it build up well and had such a shiny finish that it was hard to tell that it wasn’t opaque at times. The texture was smooth, thin but not dry or difficult to work with, and the eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out effortlessly. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

White Suede #3

White Suede #3 is a soft, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold, micro-sparkle over a satin finish. It had excellent color payoff that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges, though there was slight fallout during application. The consistency was smooth to the touch, a little slippery (not wet but more that it felt more silicone-heavy), and sat well on my skin. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before it started to fade noticeably.

White Suede #4

White Suede #4 is a medium-dark, bluish-gray with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, smooth texture that seemed like it had all the makings of a great eyeshadow, but it was a struggle to really diffuse and soften the edge of this shade without reaching for something else to help it along. The color lasted well for eight hours on me before I noticed any fading.

Ever since I watched Mel Thompson’s tutorial and review of this palette, I’ve been quite interested in it. I think with her, it wasn’t love at first, only after she had a chance to use it a bit. As to whether this cooler take on neutrals would flatter my golden olive skintone, I’m a little undecided.

I have mixed feelings about this quad – personally I am not so keen on the white packaging and I think the two lighter shades, when swatched, are fairly similar to each other – quite redundant in a quad.
I do love the inclusion of the grey shade, but I think the brown shade could have been a little more taupey.
Overall, it is an easily duped palette of fairly average quality – definitely not really worth the money.
Gorgeous eye look Christine. I love how you have blended the grey shade in the crease, with the brown on the lid.

I’d recommend watching the review and try on that Mel Thompson (formerly Puffin’s Wife) did on this palette. She said that she thought it looked horrible when swatched but once she put it on her eyes she fell deeply in love with it. The look she did was absolutely gorgeous.

Your eye look, looks so pretty. But, for the rating, & how expensive this is, it’s a pass. I could do a nice greyish look with CT Uptown Girl for a lot less money.

It looks beautiful on you. But, I am not in the least little bit attracted to this color story. Plus, I am tired of Tom Ford charging crazy prices for mediocre shadows. At his price point I expect a superior product.

I really liked the color combo and the look you crested. For $88.00, the quality must be A in all colors. Too bad about this one.

I like the inclusion of the gray, and the colors are pretty. However, as others have pointed out, the shades are easily duped at the same — or better — quality for much less money.

I’m with Genevieve on the packaging. I don’t care for white. It almost always looks cheap to me, even if the packaging is actually good quality.

Love the eye look you created, Christine! Makes me take another look at the quad even though I’ve decided to pass. Tom Ford certainly has been raining eyeshadow quads lately! 😅

I really love the look of that cool grey combined with the warm neutrals. I’ll probably go pick up a dupe for that one and try it out (I certainly have enough dupes of the other three)!
