Tom Ford Ombre Eye Color Trio #02 She Wolf from Fall 2013 Collection

One of the items of Tom Ford Fall 2013 Collection that got my intention shortly after the promo pictures were released was eye shadow trio in #02 She Wolf. On the pictures I have seen a potential of this one making it to the "most used" items of my collection and getting a place on the table instead of being sorted out in drawers or boxes. 

Tom Ford Ombre Eye Color Trio #02 She Wolf

French name given to the product does tell what it is all about, "Ombre A Paupieres Ton Sur Ton". Tom Ford's new trios concentrate on "ombre" (shading) effect of the same color (thus term "ton sur ton") with different finishes. #02 She Wolf offers a gorgeous gray taupe shade in matte, satin and glittery finishes in a Tom Ford signature compact in approximately the size of their blushes (0.16 OZ/4.5 g for $49). It is no secret that I love Tom Ford palettes (remember the blog series?) but this idea of playing with "textures" instead of "colors" sounded almost like a concept for an art project to me. I personally find it genius.

Gray taupe of She Wolf must be flattering across different complexions since it is not very cool nor warm. It is a gorgeous colors for a classical smokey eye, close to cult shades such as Skinny Jeans of Benefit.

Three shades and textures in the compact are as follows:

Left: A deep matte gray taupe
Middle: A mid-toned satin gray taupe with multi dimensional shimmer
Right: A silvery glitter shade on very light gray taupe base

After reading some other reviews I was a bit cautious and thought that the glitter shade would be over the top.  After the first application, I concluded that She Wolf is going be another go-to palette for me this Fall, for day and night. How? With that much glitter? Let me talk about it in a few seconds and first introduce you with this beauty in action.

It was a breeze to get this look, I followed these steps:
  • Primed my eyes with Nars Pro-prime
  • Applied the middle shade all over the eye lid as well as along the lower lash line
  • Defined close to upper lash line from midway to the outer corner and the crease with left most deep shade.
  • Padded some glitter to the inner corner and sparingly on the lid with my finger.
  • Applied one coat of mascara to upper and lower lashes (YSL Baby Doll)


In-action: Tom Ford Ombre Eye Color Trio #02 She Wolf

I loved how the look came together and if the glitter is used sparingly, this is definitely a day time look for me. It is a little different than Guerlain's new duos, for example #06 Two Parisian, which had no middle shade so the glitter had to be build to get some color on the lid and the resulting look is more of a night time one for my taste. After seeing the resulting look from She Wolf, I remembered about the following video of Lisa Eldridge. She uses Benefit Skinny Jeans as a base, a darker shade on the crease and pads a silver glitter with almost transparent base from a Dior Smokey palette for a "day-time" look which she later on transforms to a evening look by intensifying the glitter shade on the lid and adding a statement lip. Tom Ford's She Wolf is almost all of these products in a compact together, to achieve the look she presents in her video.




Final thoughts: I love the concept and the implementation a well as the resulting look of Tom Ford's new trio in #02 She Wolf. I found this one suitable to day as well as night looks, depending on how much of the glitter is padded on the lid. She Wolf, for me, is definitely the star of Tom Ford's Fall 2013 Collection.

Do you find yourself wearing glitters for the day time too or is it strictly for special occasion/ night time look for you?

  1. Ahhh I'd LOVE to have this one! Look at that taupe! I don't really mind wearing some sparkle for daytime. As long as it's not all over the lid, I think it could be quite wearable :)

    1. Hi,
      yes maybe the definition "gray/taupe" was a little shallow :-D It definitely is a gorgeous shade, between everything I know, leaning to all possible neighboring shades. Enjoy it!

  8. I just preordered this from Neiman Marcus :) and the liquid eyeliner and somehow got talked into getting the eyeshadow primer (which feels divine that I HAD to buy it).... I also caved and bought burnish amber since they still had in stock and can't get it online anymore and you so raved about it!

    1. The eye shadow primer! It was on my list but then I have heard that it is perm so I will be checking that one out on my visit to Berlin in the beginning of November in person. I hardly use eye liners but one with an extremely fine tip sounds divine nevertheless. I might have to check that one out too. Let me know how you like them after you play with them. :-))
      Oh and enjoy Burnished Amber! ;-)

  9. So excited for new TF shadows!! Would you recommend she wolf or titanium? Are they supper similar? And I can't believe they're getting rid of Burnished Amber...I LOOOVE that one!

    1. Hi Alicia,
      I would recommend She Wolf because it can be worn day and night. Titanium Smoke is to me more of a night quad. I can't believe that Burnished Amber will be discontinued either, so disappointed with this decision :-(

    2. Thank you! Ordered She Wolf! Can't wait to get it! :)

  10. Wowww She Wolf looks gorgeous! I thought the shades were darker that your swatches. I am glad to know that this trio eyeshadow looks more wearable that what I thought. I love the taupe shade in the middle :)

    1. Taupe shade in the middle is certainly a breath taking taupe on its own but together with other two, they give you a gorgeous eye look with definition and highlight. :-)
      Yes this one is perfectly wearable for me, I can wear it easily to work.
