Tom Ford Quads Orchid Haze vs. Enchanted

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?

  1. I like Orchid Haze more as well! It's easier to pull the colors off on my skin tone :)

    1. I agree with you Sunny, it is easier to pull off the colors for many of us. I also prefer the texture.

    1. LOL, it was Belly's idea to compare these two. They are similar but the textures are very different. Also Seductive Rose is similar to those two ;-)

    1. This is certainly a very hard question since Silvered Topaz is my all time favorite Tom Ford Quad. All my replies would be biased ;-) but i can say that if you like it a bit cooler and sparkly, go for Silvered Topaz. If you like it warmer and a bit shimmery, opt for Orchid Haze. If i had to pick one for myself, I would get Silvered Topaz but choice is very personal.

  6. Orchid Haze looks great. I think it's a pity I can play with Tom Ford in person (not available here) but it's definitely a blessing in disguise for my wallet. LOL!

    1. Hi Lily,
      I can only play with those in Berlin and in a few weeks I visit a friend there. I may need hours to touch and feel everything to write a wish list which I can buy throughout the year ;-)
