Tom Ford Ombre Eye Color Trio #01 In The Pink from Fall 2013 Collection

Tom Ford Beauty released two eye shadow trios for their Fall 2013 collection. I have already presented you the taupe gray eye shadow trio called She Wolf and wrote about how genius I find the idea of having a palette consisting of one color. Tom Ford decided to play around with the textures instead of the shades and in my opinion he did it in such a stunning way. Today I would like to show you the second trio, "In the pink" which is a different take on the same concept.


Tom Ford Ombre Eye Color Trio #01 In The Pink

The name of She Wolf made me literally purchase the trio and in the end it made perfect sense considering the gray fur of a wolf. The name of "In the pink" though made me rather suspect if I could pull off a trio consisting of just pinks. Now I can safely say, I find the name misleading with this one, it should be something more like... "In the peach"? In other words there is enough peach in these pinks that would be flattering across the skin tones.

"In The Pink" consists of the following shades:

Left: A light matte peachy pink
Middle: A light satin peachy pink
Right: Light peachy pink glitter on a transparent basis 

Below I took photos under the sun as well as in the shadow to give you better idea of the reflection qualities. You see that in shadow the glittery shade looks rather like an eye shadow with frosty finish whereas under the sun, glitter looks more sparse and shimmery.

For the below look, I followed these steps:

  • Primed my eyes with Nars Pro-prime.
  • Applied the lightest matte shade (left) all over the lid up to the brow bone and along the lower lash line.
  • Padded the satin eye shadow (middle) on the lid from midway to the outer corner.
  • Picked up some glitter shade with my finger and padded that on the lid, densely on the inner corner, blending it by padding with fingers in the direction of outer corner.
  • Lined my eyes along upper and lower lash line with a cool brown eye liner. Below I used Urban Decay Demolition. I think a black liner would destroy the softness of this look, so with this one I prefer a brown, taupe or soft anthracite liner.
  • I curled my eye lashes and applied one coat of YSL Baby Doll mascara. If I had a brown mascara with me, I would also go for that for the ultimate nude look.

As Belly from Wondegondigo already pointed out, "In the pink" is a little tricky to show up on your lids for some complexions. Check out her post to see how the shades show up on different bases. I am usually NC20-25 but right now despite all the sun screen, I got a bit of a tan and my skin went a few shades darker. As you see from swatches above, the first matte shade shows up good on me so I used this as a base. In the pink might give a rather dramatic eye look for deeper complexions but on my coloring, this gives me soft nude eye, something to pair with a bold lip for a night look or use it daily for a natural nude look. Either way, I liked the resulting look at the moment. I have to go back and try it once I am back to my original coloring and see if it is still visible on my lids. If it is not, I am considering to try a white base, like NYX Milk eye shadow pencil as a base color.

Final thoughts: Thumbs up for this trio which gives a gorgeous soft, nude look to your eyes with some twist if you pad a little glitter here and there. It is "my eyes but brighter and better" kind of look, similar to what Tom Ford creme eye shadows from their summer collection achieved (check out them in action here). In The Pink is limited edition and will be on Tom Ford counters in September. If you like the pinks but would rather like a denser/deeper look on your eyes, check out Tom Ford's Seductive Rose quad (previously reviewed here), which was previously exclusive to asia but now available around the globe.

Do you like wearing soft shades on your eyes or you rather like your eye shadow appropriately show up? What do you think about glitter on nude looks?

  1. It's really pretty on you! But I think I have enough shades like this already haha. I really want to try his eyeshadows, but I think a quad might be the way to go for me.

    1. Those shades would look fabolous on your blue eyes for sure so I can understand you stocked them up in your stash ;-)
      Yes a quad might be the thing to go to get into the line. Are you eyeing any?

  2. Oh this looks so pretty on you! You just made me so glad I caved and ordered it!!! I was having doubts. You make this look so good--soft and subtle, but still kinda edgy.

    1. Hi Jenny.
      were you considering to pass on this? No way? This one literally calls your name as much as I know your taste :-)
      Enjoy it, I can't wait for your review.

  3. I just love these shades, so pretty but I would have to make them pop with a darker one. So sad we don't have TF in Canada! :(

    1. Alternatively the look could be defined on crease with a darker eye shadow but i think the concept behind this one is really to leave it like this and maybe add a winged eye liner and some statement lip to that. It is also hard to find TF in Germany, only one counter in Berlin has them. I am hoping that they are going to extend their availability.

  5. Omg everything looks gorgeous on you! So sad it's too light for me, I agree with Icaria I need a darker color to give my flat eye lids some dimension.. Oh how I wish I can just wear light colors like this trio! Lol

    1. Thanks so much for your comment. I think the idea here is an alternative way of definition, not with color but with texture. For example padding some glitter just to the center of the lid, it might give some dimension. you may want to experiment with it :-)

  7. They look great on you :) The TF fall has just come out here and I'm really not sure what to buy now as I was thinking of getting both trios and the Orchid haze palette, but was surprised that the trios cost £50 each, which is only £12 less than the palettes, what with the Suqqu fall now out and the new Charlotte Tilbury line coming out on Monday, its all a bit overload, I want it all of course but just can't afford it ;)

    1. I can feel you. I am also confused, can't decide what to go for, they all look pretty LOL.
      You are right about the content/price observation, trios have only 4.5 g of product, quads have 10 g. I was also expecting trios to be cheaper but it seems most of the money goes on the packaging rather than the product.

      Can't wait for your reviews on the products you chose!

  8. Ah, this is infinitely more striking on you! I LOVE how the matte shade really stands so vividly on your skin. Yep, your tan + the pinks are absolutely stunning on you. <3
