I have a few of the TF quads and of the ones I have they are lovely. However, this one wasn't as nice as the others I have. The double glitter pans killed it for me. One large pan of glitter is more than enough for a quad. The satin colors were very soft and blend-able. The combined look from this quad was less than impressive. I love the luxury of TF$, but he needs to cut back on the glitter shades. I have my eye on seductive rose, but I worry it will be the same story.

I picked up the Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in 01 Golden Mink several years ago.
The Tom Ford shadows have four finishes, sheer sparkle, satin, shimmer and matte.
I will assume based on the name alone that the the top two shadows in the quad are the sheer sparkle finish. They are basically a super finely milled glitter with some sort of liquid component. They are incredibly shimmery and look just beautiful on the eye. I don't wear them alone, but layered in strategic places over other shadows, they are stunning.
The lighter brown color in the lower left of the quad is probably a shimmer. It's a satin eyeshadow with discernable glitter.The darker brown on the lower right of the quad is probably a satin as it contains no obvious glitter.
The two brown shadows are so incredibly creamy and pigmented. They apply like a dream. The two sparkly shades across the top are trickier to apply. I've found that using one of those little sponge applicators works really well.
The packaging is the typically masculine, super sleek Tom Ford packaging. It is also incredibly reflective.
I will grant you that $75 is a lot for an eyeshadow compact, but you do get a lot of product. If you look at just grams per dollar, it's actually not that bad. Tom for works out to $7.50 per gram. MAKE UP FOR EVER shadows work out to $8.80 per gram. MAC shadows are $10 per gram.
This is certainly a luxury purchase, but I love it and I think it is absolutely worth the money.

This has become my go-to eyeshadow for occasions. It looks very plain in the box but glamorous on my eyelids.
Its texture is between creamy and powdery and spreads like butter, which makes blending very easy. When used without glitters I can master a very modern smokey look with the clumsy sponge-brush that comes with it. For special events I pop on the glitters and light up my eyes!
I'd day I will purchase it again but I can't imagine when that will be as the thing contains so much product in it that for sure it'll last centuries.

I recently bought the Tom Ford quad in Emerald lust. Its just what i was looking for! Not over the top teal, something sheer, sophisticated, glittery.
There is no fallout. It blends so great , its buttery and elegant.
I love the lightest green shade. These can be built up to darker colors or worn wet. I just applied it dry and it looks nice.

Most expensive eyeshadow I've ever bought(by the piece). The luxury and performance you get is ddefintely worth the splurge, if you like glitters. There is no other brand on the market that make better glitter shade(compact eyeshadow) than Tom Ford. It feels silky smooth when gliding my fingers over the pan. The particles are so small while extremely shiny. Not that kind of chunky glitter you get from loose pigments.
Considering the amount of product you get, it lasts an entire life. I would 100% recommend it as an investment.
