More spring beauty launches are starting to trickle in and I’m excited for new formulas, fresh colors and pretty palettes that are coming out! I hauled some of the new Tom Ford Beauty launches from Nordstrom and I think there are some winners!
Tom Ford Eye Color Quad Creme Eyeshadow Palettes
Tom Ford launched a new eye palette formula called the Eye Color Quad Creme Eyeshadow Palettes ($89 each). These have a unique creme to powder finish that are ultra smooth with a good mix of matte, satin and shimmers. Texture is really unique in the sense that they have a creamy texture and feel but aren’t super emollient like a traditional cream. Colors are easy to blend and layer.
Rose Topaz is a neutral-cool palette with a nude beige pink (almost my skin tone), warm champagne, sparkling silvery taupe and a cool-toned brown with plum tones. Quality is excellent and tones are beautiful. It does pull more cool-toned on my medium olive skin, if you have neutral fair tones I think it will pull more neutral on you.
Tiger Eye is my favorite with a shimmery light peach, shimmery coral golden peach, shimmery light taupe bronze and satin warm deep brown. I think this will be great for spring to summer.
Smoky Quartz is an all matte/satin finish palette with a light bark tan, medium light pink terracotta brown, cocoa brown and black-brown. This one surprised me because it looked darker in the pan and swatches than it applies on the eyes. On the eyes it’s almost like a deep but still natural contour eye palette and I love it!

There is definitely a powdery dry down with these on my eyes. It has a soft lightweight texture. Lasting power is quite good. I think all three make for great everyday kind of wear.
Swatches of all three:
New Tom Ford Lip Colors
For the lips Tom Ford launched three new Private Rose Garden Satin Matte Lip Colors ($60 each) to go alongside his new Private Blend Rose Garden Fragrances (also available in minis in the Tom Ford Private Blend Roses Travel Set + Atomizer $200). I bought 2 of the 3 shades in Rose d’Amalfi which is a matte light rose pink and Rose de Chine which is a stunning warmer coral rose. Both have an ultra smooth texture, rich pigment, matte finish and long lasting power.
For a lot of matte lip colors, I’ll prep the lips with something like the MAC Prep + Prime Lip which is a lipstick base to help smooth the lip surface. It also prevents feathering and holds lip color in place.

Tom Ford also launched a couple of his best selling shades in the Rose Prick Lip Color Collection. Shades include Indian Rose (one of my favorite shades) and in Casablanca (deeper rose). The colors are the same as the regular lip color formula, the only difference is the packaging is pink and black which is super fun!

Overall some solid winners! My favorite quad is Tiger Eye although I’m really loving the simplicity of Smoky Quartz. For the Satin Matte Lip Colors I love both, I think they’re super wearable and fun for spring.
