Tom Ford Shadow Extreme Brings Foil, Glitter, and Glamour To Your Eyes

Tom Ford Shadow Extreme has my wallet cringing in horror at the idea a $36 single eyeshadow but I never claimed I was a logical makeup lover. So, that $36 isn’t really making me feel guilty, frugal, or a smart consumer in any way, shape, or form at the moment. Unless of course, I spend said $36 and become crushingly disappointed with the formula but from what I hear there’s only joy to be had here!

Tom Ford Shadow Extreme arrives to us in 20 shades with two finishes, one a glitter, one a foil. Each having a thin, water-resistant formula that contains long-wearing polymers that hugs the lid and allows for long, strong hold without creasing. The concentrate formula is packaged with pigment so a little goes a long way or so they promise me.

I can’t say I have not spent an exuberant of money on Tom Ford Eyeshadow as I have hauled several Cream Color For Eyes which set me back $30 each but I do believe $36 might just be the highest I ever spent on a single eyeshadow shade in my life. I have no regrets though, I did in fact purchase a single shade and will likely be back for more if the formula promises all that the raving reviews say it does.

Expect a rave or perhaps a rant shortly.

What do you think?

Willing to dish this much out on a single eyeshadow shade?

Do share!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    If it’s Muse Approved then I may pick up one. I’ve bought Burberry singles in the past; not sure if they cost this much though.

      FLATTERED! Burbery’s are at 30 so they are up there ;-D

    I caved and bought TF’s Nude Dip palette when I had a Sephora gift card. It is nice, but when you consider it’s $20/shadow ($80 for the quad), the price of these singles might not be so outrageous depending on the amount of product.

    Who am I kidding? It’s all ridiculous and yet we indulge.

    • Isabella Muse

      lol! Sometimes, I admit that I don’t really take price into consideration! Don’t tell anyone I said that though!

  • Susan

    I’d never pay that much. Some of these swatched terribly at Temptalia.

    I indulged and bought two of the glitter finishes from the first launch and boy am I so glad I did. I got Camera Obscura and Tempete Bleu. There’s a little fall out but nothing too serious and nothing my NYX glitter glue primer can’t handle. They are captivating. I love the sheer wash of sparkle and color they give with a light swatch across or the intensity they can build up to and they are hella fun to layer on top of other colors. I have never spent that much money on a single shadow before. I started with just Camera Obscura and loved it so much I waited for the Tempete Bleu to come back in stock and was not disappointed. I constantly get compliments when I wear them. I’m eagerly awaiting to see swatches of the new shades.

      they sound divine! ;-D I purchased two so far and waiting for them to arrive!

    I don’t think Tom Ford’s eyeshadows are worth that amount of money – they haven’t always been top notch for the price in recent years. I am pretty sure you have dupes for most of these shades Muse.

    I spent $98 on the accompanying Extreme lash and brow tints-1 copper and 1 magenta. Should be money well spent, since I’m a sucker for color in general and especially colored mascaras.

      • Nikki

        I just used the copper today and it’s gorgeous! It stood out against my black eyeliner and has lasted all day.

        • Isabella Muse

          omg that’s awesome glad to hear! I have to dig into mine shortly!
