I am delighted to share swatches of the new Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Face & Eye Palette collection. I have Rose Cashmere & Moonlit Violet. These palettes are so popular with the collectors!

The compacts are like the most perfect little clutches. Until now, I have only seen them in the Soleil ivory and gold packaging, but these look beautiful in the classic Tom Ford colourway.

What shades are in the Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Face & Eye Palette collection?

There are two colourways in the face and eye palettes for the UK and they are both stunning. We have:

  • Intensity 0.5 /Rose Cashmere
  • Inensity 2 / Moonlit Violet

There are two other colourways available globally, Intensity 1 / Red Harness and also Intensity 3 / Moss Agate.

All the paletttes contain four eyeshadows, a ‘shader’ (contour) shade and a highlight shade.

Tom Ford says, “The ultimate look in one luxurious Tom Ford clutch. Each intensity level of iconic shade and illuminate is paired with an eye color quad featuring four color-coordinated eye shadows designed to complement your skin tone.

I am pleased to say that I have both the colourways to share with you, and I’m definitely going to get a lot of use out of them both.

Unsurprisingly I’d imagine, Rose Cashmere is my favourite. I love the eyeshadow shades, and also Intensity 0.5 is my perfect contour shade.

This palette uses the Intensity 0.5 contour shade and is the lightest of the collection. The higlighter has a yellow-gold hue and creates a beautiful soft sheen on the skin.

I love the eyeshadow colours with a pale champagne shimmer shade, a peachy pink satin, a shimmery rose gold, and a bronzey taupe shade. It’s perfect little quad of colour and you can also use the contour and highlight shades to sculpt the eyes.

This palette uses the Intensity 2 contour shade which would work well as a medium, warm-toned bronzer. The highlighter is a pale, white gold with soft pink.

Again, the eyeshadows are really pretty. There’s a soft champagne-toned taupe shimmer, a grey-toned lilac, a deep grey with purple undertones, and a deep plum shade. They are all really wearable.
