I just want to start this post off by saying how freaking gorgeous this palette is… I mean… just look!
Note: All opinions are my own and based on my own use of this product. This is not sponsored at all. Just me gushing about this palette.
I picked this up on impulse (as I do most pretty shiny things make-up related) but mostly because I never had such a compact, small eyeshadow palette before. And I have never tried a Tom Ford eyeshadow product before.
Most of the palettes I own have a range between 15-28 shades in them, they are bulky, and take up a lot of room in my vanity. While they are all amazing, buttery and creamy palettes, having something compact that I can pop into any handbag and carry around with me was the deciding factor with this one. Oh and the colours are so incredible and universal shades of pink and purple.
I have been wearing this palette alone for over three weeks now and don’t have a single complaint. Honestly, I want to have one. I have searched and gone over the application of the shadows over and over but truly I cannot find anything wrong with it. You get your money’s worth with this one, and for good reason too because it was pretty pricey.
It is pigmented, a little goes a long way, it’s vibrant and blends amazing well with just a few brush strokes if that. I tried it with an eye primer and without one and it still yielded the same results, although the eye primer did help the shimmer gleam a little more. It also doesn’t have any fall-out which makes applying it all the better.
I think the best part of it, especially when considering how high-end this is, is that it can be used for both those natural, every day looks, and the more full-face glamorous look.
Here are some swatches:

If you are thinking of getting someone a luxury gift or treating yourself to some new make-up, I would definitely reccomend this eyeshadow palette. I have not tried the other shades, but imagine that the formulation is the same! If you’d like me to use this on my eyes and show you my go to look with it, let me know and I’d be more than happy to!!
What luxury type make-up products would you highly recommend? Is there anything that you’re currently loving?
