Hello my lovelies! A lot of people have been talking about Tom Ford makeup lately…

Some say it’s overpriced crap, some are saying that it’s luxe and quality product. I can’t comment on the entire brand but I did choose two quads (note: paid for by me, Australian priced rip-offs no less) that I felt were the most unique and provided the best colour payoff (I always leave department stores with a rainbow down my arms!).

I purchased ‘Cognac Sable’ and ‘Burnished Amber’ from David Jones in Sydney City for $99 AUD each (ouch!)

Here are the quads!

Both palettes are on the warm side. The textures and pigmentation has been fantastic in these two quads (in my humble opinion) but the gold glitter in Cognac Sable is hard to work with- it needs a base and lots of layering to get the above pigmentation.
Burnished Amber is the more unique quad, I have a soft spot for jewel tones :)

Bonus picture! A gift from my father, it has flecks of rose gold, which I’m obsessed with lately. I’ve been awfully sick in the past week or so, this really cheered me up!

  1. Hi, I’ve subscribe to your blog by email since but I missed these original posts.

    I’m on a lowbuy (less successful now I’ve started visiting boards and forums again) and even worse since I’ve subscribed to your blog.

    However, I’ve just decided I want to buy Burnished Amber and Cocoa Mirage. Is Burnished Amber d/c? I’ve had no luck finding it and then found a blog post from this month saying it was d/c? Do you know if its still available in Australia/online anywhere? If so I’d have to get myself to a counter asap.

    I’ve only recently discovered your blog but its one of my favourite finds. And as I said responsible for an endangered lowbuy. ;-)

  2. Wow, those are so pigmented! Love! :D
