Tom Ford Meteoric Eye Color Quad

 

Meteoric

Tom Ford Beauty Meteoric Eye Color Quad is a “new” palette that featured two sparkly eyeshadows, one matte eyeshadow, and one satin eyeshadow. The shade has some overlap with past releases by the brand that it feels less like a new addition to the range and more of random launch you’d see for a retailer-exclusive. The sparkly shades have some fallout and need to be built up for higher coverage, while the fourth shade was stiffer than ideal.

Meteoric #1

Meteoric #1 is a sparkling, light-medium beige base with lighter, silvery sparkles running through it, which gave it a lighter appearance when applied to my skin. The texture was soft, almost spongy when pressed with a fingertip–airier and more cushion-like than the brand’s typical sparkle eyeshadows (which are emollient but firmer).

It had semi-opaque coverage applied dry, which could be built up but was better applied with a dampened brush for full coverage, if desired. This shade lasted for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Meteoric #2

Meteoric #2 is a very light mauve with strong,w arm undertones and a bluish-silver sparkle throughout. It had good color payoff in a single pass, which could be built up to full coverage with less than half of a layer more. Applied with a dampened brush or fingertip, it was more opaque in one layer.

The texture was soft, more yielding and almost sponge-like, compared to other sparkly shades by the brand (but definitely not a cream product!). It wore well for eight hours with slight fallout over time.

Meteoric #3

Meteoric #3 is a medium, rosy brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, lightly powdery in the pan but very finely-milled and blenable. It had opaque color coverage that sheered out slightly to more semi-opaque coverage when applied without primer. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Meteoric #4

Meteoric #4 is a medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. The texture was firmer, stiffer to work with, which made picking up product more challenging. I noticed that the sheen was less pronounced once applied and diffused on my lid. It had semi-opaque color payoff that needed to be layered in order to achieve full, even coverage. This shade lasted decently for seven hours on me before fading noticeably.
