After I posted about the new Tom Ford Quad Orchid Haze, some of you asked for a comparison between this one and an old discontinued Tom Ford Quad from last Fall, Enchanted. Recently I regained access to my stash (see my diving into eye shadows, showering with nail polish, sun bathing on loose powders! Is there a better feeling?) so here comes the requested comparison between the two.

In the pan they look similar, taupey/plummy shades, satins and shimmers, both have no glitter shades. Enchanted may also be used wet, thus has a harder quality to that. Orchid Haze might be the smoothest and most buttery of all Tom Ford quads.
The sun swatch shows that Enchanted is more shimmery/frost whereas Orchid Haze plays it nicer, more subdued. Another difference is the darkest shade, Orchid Haze has a matte dark shade, which I personally find more useable since the definition is deeper once it doesn't reflect the light and I love my definition as deep as it gets (does it make sense?).

One more swatch in shadow to be able to concentrate on the shades rather than the textures. Enchanted is lighter and cooler whereas Orchid Haze can be more appealing to broader spectrum of complexions.

Final thoughts: I personally prefer Orchid Haze to Enchanted so wouldn't worry if you missed Enchanted. Orchid Haze covers you.
Which one do you like more?
