Tom Ford Cream Color for Eye in Pink Haze and Escapade -

Tom Ford only seems to release these exquisite cream shadows to tease his adoring fans. They are limited and should be on your summer beauty hitlist. These two shades were my first two cream colours from Tom Ford. I would wear them every day if I did not have so many other wonderful eye product to test and enjoy.

Pink Haze is a shimmering salmon pink. this product is so creamy and blendable.  It can be worn as a soft wash of colour or built up without it looking heavy. This has been compared to Chanel's Illusion D' Ombre in Abstraction but surpasses it in texture and wear and colour. Chanel's Emerveille is a lot more pastel.

Escapade is a butterscotch cream shade. It's mousse-like texture glides on beautifully. This shade has less shimmer than pink haze, but still has a lovely gleam to it. Both can be used as a wash or layered as a base with powder shadows to give more depth and interest.

Both of these shades wear the whole day without losing any impact. I have oily lids and they work well with or without primer for me. I apply with my Real Techniques base shadow brush. The tacklon bristle's are a perfect pairing for these cream shadows. A sweeping motion is needed as opposed to Armani's Eyes To Kill pots which require more of a patting motion. I think most people could wear these shades as long as you think out of the box. Both are unusual neutrals, because lets be honest how many taupe shadows can a girl rock!
I have a few more items from the Tom Ford summer 2013 collection, but these would be my must haves.

What has been your favourite summer collection this season?
