Tom Ford Naked Bronze Cream & Powder Eye Color Review

NBmain2After testing out Tom Ford Golden Peach Cream & Powder Eye Color (review here), I had to purchase Tom Ford Naked Bronze Cream & Powder Eye Color.  As far as I know, the cream eyeshadow in Naked Bronze is Spice (released as a limited edition in the Christmas 2014 collection) and I missed out on that so it warranted the purchase.  Well, so I told myself!:)

The packaging is the same as Golden Peach: a clear plastic pot for the cream eyeshadow and a white container for the pressed glitter on top. The lid of the glitter compartment has a full size mirror.  You twist the top part to get access to the cream pot.

The cream eye shadow has quite a warm undertone.  It is coppery, almost red shade with micro shimmers.  It is intensely pigmented.  So it is best to apply a small amount to the centre of the eyelids and build up slowly.  You can wear it as sheer or as opaque as you desire. Over primer, it lasted on my oily lids for 8 hours before signs of creasing.  It is very comfortable to wear, creamy and does not emphasise texture.

NBcreThe glitter eye shadow powder is a light-medium dirty/antique gold with gold sparkle in a transparent, sheer base.  I find finger is the best applicator as with most glitter shadows/powders.  There is very minimal fall out during application with this glitter shadow.  The colour lasted well on my oily lids for 8 hours before creasing slightly.

NBclose5Layering Naked Bronze glitter on top of Naked Bronze cream eyeshadow yield a glorious, beautiful lighter copper, bronze sparkling shade.  The finish is unique, glossy and almost wet-looking which does not emphasise texture of my eyelids.

These swatches were taken in direct, natural sunlight.

NBswatch1Tom Ford Naked Bronze Cream & Powder Eye Color is very to use yet the finish look is sophisticated and glamorous.  You can achieve a perfect, bronzed summer look by pairing it with some rosy orange blush and orangey red lipstick.

Verdict:  I love Tom Ford Naked Bronze Cream & Powder Eye Color.  It is very pleasant and easy to use.  You can use the cream eyeshadow by itself or add some drama and glamour by layering the glitter eyeshadow powder on top and you are more than set for a night out.  My only wish is that the price point is a little lower.  I have to tell you that my wallet has wept again and again over Tom Ford Soleil Collection Summer 2015:(

I purchased my Tom Ford Naked Bronze Cream & Powder Eye Color from Harvey Nichols.  It is a limited edition and you can hunt for it also at Selfridges, Harrods and House of Fraser(online only).

Have you tried any items from Tom Ford Soleil Collection Summer 2015?  Are you tempted to purchase Tom Ford Naked Bronze Cream and Powder Eye Color?

Thank you for reading.

    These are awfully beautiful! But that price point does seem very excessive…
