BG Beauty Review: Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes

Our thoughts

3 12 2012

Gilded Lids. Glimmering Golds. Metal Eyes. Must-have Metallics. You’ve heard it all before. While striking in theory and positively stunning on the runway, for many women, the reality of shimmer on lids is downright scary. . . Sure, it’s a dazzling little look that we love to see on our favorite starlets, but for some reason — we shudder at the thought of glitz & twinkle on our eyes. Thankfully, our BG Beauty Girls are highly skilled in the art of ‘How To Not Look Like A Disco Ball’.

With the help of  Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes [brand NEW for Spring!!], a Sharpie, and a sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper, we help you navigate the season’s metallic craze.

 After testing Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes (212 872 2813), naturally — we have a bit of Beauty Girl insight to share.

- If we had our way, we’d rename these ‘Whipped Cream Color for Eyes’. . .the texture is unbelievably dreamy and blends better than any potted cream shadow we’ve tried in a while. Most cream shadows tend to be a bit stiff and require a little warming with finger tips to make them pliable. Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes is seamless and glides onto lids with ease.

- While our chart (above) makes shade recommendations for all complexions, we tried each cream shadow on a wide range of complexions around the office and found that everyone can wear every shade. . . after either building the color to be more intense or after sheering it down to a soft wash.

- We’re certain professional makeup artists recommend the use of brushes. . . but we love using our fingers for quick and easy eyes. However, if you’re a brush girl, reach for one that’s flat and somewhat dense.

- The long-wear formula lives up to its claim. Our Beauty Editor’s lids were crease-free for the first 6 hours of wear. We’re pretty certain an eye makeup primer or dab of concealer will help to extend the life of each wear.
