Tom Ford Unabashed Eye & Cheek Compact
Price $95.00 for 0.47 oz./13.5g
Where To Purchase: Nordstrom, Saks
This is a limited edition palette its packaged in a beautiful ivory and gold colored Tom Ford case. This compact is pretty big the first picture is a comparison with a Tom Ford eyeshadow quad and the second picture is a comparison with a Tom Ford blush. This compact is very large this comes in the same compact as Tom Ford powder bronzers. I noticed that Tom Ford is bringing back his original ivory and gold packaging for summer collections.
Unabashed Eye & Cheek compact comes with 3 eye shadows, one blush, and a bronzer. As you can see its just as gorgeous inside the color selection is very unique.
The Sparkling Taupe Shadow
I love Tom Ford sparking shadows this looks wet in the pan and goes on with out any fall outs. This sparkling shadow is very pretty and extremely smooth. This can be used in a day time look I already used this palette and created a simple wearable look. I apply all the Tom Ford sparkling shadows with my finger I feel like that's the best way to work with these sparkling shadows. This is quite similar to She Wolf trio sparkling shade but it is not a dupe.
The Cool Tone Matte Taupe Eye Shadow
This shadow is a cool tone taupe brown shade feels extremely soft and the pigmentation is amazing. Sometimes I find cooler tone shadows don't compliment my skin tone much but this looked great on me. This eyeshadow is very easy to blend its very finely miled which can cause fall out. But if you pat this on your lids you will get less fall outs I think this taupe brown eye shadow fits right in with the bright cobalt blue and the gorgeous sparkling shadow.
The Cobalt Blue Eye Shadow
This shadow is my favorite of them all I love this bright bold cobalt blue eyeshadow. I'm hearing a lot of people complain about this shadow being messy I don't agree with that statement. This eyeshadow is very pigmented and can look scary to some people but trust me you can incorporate this eyeshadow with your daytime look. This eyeshadow blends very well just like the taupe eye shadow it feels very silky and smooth. I did use this eyeshadow as a liner also smudged it on my lower lash line it was very easy to apply.
The Coral Pink Blush
This blush is stunning its a coral pink with golden micro shimmers. This blush looks like Nars Orgasm which is a little more pinker than this. This blush also looks a lot like Tom Ford Love Lust blush from his permanent line. It looks great on my nc40-42 skin I'm sure this will look gorgeous on both light and dark skin ladies. Its a perfect shade for summer gives you that beautiful hint of color with a gorgeous glow.
When I first saw this compact online I thought this is a bronzer but once I swatched it I realized this is more of a illuminating powder. I don't see my self using this as a bronzer I prefer my bronzer matte and this is a peachy brown shade with gold shimmer. Its pigmented and the texture is very smooth and silky. I used this as a highlighter gave me just the right amount of bronzed glow.
This is an amazing palette with a unique color combination the texture, pigmentation and longevity of the products are phenomenal. The eye shadows and the cheek colors lasted over 8 hours of wear on me. I don't see my self traveling with this compact because I don't think I will be up for using bright cobalt blue eyeshadow everyday. But I do see my self using the taupe and the sparkle eye shadow a lot. This palette is very expensive but its absolutely worth it after swatching and using this palette I'm extremely happy with my purchase. I was afraid the taupe eye shadow won't work for me but I was wrong each and every color worked perfectly. Unfortunately this palette is sold out almost everywhere but Nordstrom still has it on back order so get it before its gone.
