Swatched on my arm below, it pulls cooler on my olive skin, but then many taupes and silvers tend to pull more mauve/blue on me than most other people. I applied from darkest to lightest on the eyes blending the first two shades together and then pressed the sparkle lightly on top.
Tom Ford Ombré Eye Color Trio: She WolfAugust 25, 2013
Tom Ford She Wolf Ombré Eye Color Trio is a palette with a matte brown-gray, soft shimmery taupe and a sheer silver sparkle ($60 for .16 oz/4.5g, limited-edition). The trio is quite stunning and creates a beautiful smokey eye. The pigment is rich and texture is smooth for the matte and shimmer. The sparkle is on the sheer side with a silvery sheen. Like In the Pink, the sparkle in She Wolf has excellent staying power. She Wolf’s sparkle is a bit more glitzy on my skin as it seems cooler-toned and stands out more against my olive skin. It also stands out brightly against the other two shades which are darker colors. The sparkle isn’t too over the top, but it’s still too much sparkle for me to feel comfortable wearing everyday to a conservative corporate office.

I couldn’t find anything quite like the shades in Tom Ford She Wolf. There are definitely similar shades but most of my other taupes were either warmer, more mauve or quite a bit darker. Here are some comparisons below to Edward Bess Dusk, Chanel Safari (a classic), NARS Ashes to Ashes, Burberry Midnight Brown and Bobbi Brown Cement Sparkle.
Tom Ford She Wolf is a beautiful palette. It’s stunning in the compact and when swatched on the skin. I can wear two of the shades easily, the last sparkle shade is so pretty, but just too much sparkle for me. I was going to ask my husband for his opinion but before I could say anything, as soon as he saw me, he said, “Wow, you’re really rockin’ out with the glitter.” Me: “Too much?” Him: “Yes.” LOL. Your mileage may vary depending on how much sparkle you feel comfortable pulling off. I can wear some of Bobbi Brown’s Sparkle Eye Shadows and a few MAC Pressed Pigments (those are super sparkly for me). The sparkle in Tom Ford She Wolf is a bit too much for me, but still something I can easily wear for night.
