Tom Ford Reflection Cream & Powder Eye Color Review & Swatches



Tom Ford Beauty Reflection Cream & Powder Eye Color is a new, limited edition duo that features a rich, sparkling brown powder eyeshadow paired with a coppery, pearlized cream eyeshadow.

Reflection (Eye Color)

Reflection (Eye Color) is a rich, deeper brown with warm, yellow undertones and flecks of gold sparkle throughout. It was one of the least-sparkly shades I’ve seen in this formula, but it was also one of the richest and most pigmented on its own–like this is a real powerhouse duo as a result, since it is more versatile.

The texture was smooth, more firmly-pressed in the pan, and felt almost “wet” to the touch. It had opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin and blended out easily with very minimal blowing out of the sparkles along the edges (but no visible fallout). It wore well for nine hours and did not seem to suffer from fallout during wear.

Reflection (Cream Color)

Reflection (Cream Color) is a light-medium, coppery bronze with warm, reddish undertones and warmer, golden pearl that gave it a more metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and I felt like it was more consistent in coverage and opacity in practice (on the lid as opposed to swatched on my arm).

The texture was creamy, spreadable, and emollient without being too emollient, so I could soften and diffuse the edges but retained the intensity and coverage as desired. It wore well for eleven and a half hours before creasing slightly.
