TOM FORD BEAUTY Cream & Powder Eye Color in Night Sky Swatches

I have received numerous requests, from longtime readers, to swatch the limited edition TOM FORD BEAUTY Cream & Powder Eye Color in Night Sky, and to give my assessment about it. Therefore, I made sure to play with it for a while when I went to swatch the entire TOM FORD BEAUTY Lips & Boys 2015 Collection.

TOM FORD Beauty Cream & Powder Eye Color in Night Sky is a stunning double-decker cream and powder eyeshadow duo that in a deep blackened navy blue. The color is utterly gorgeous and ultra dramatic. It can be worn for a very dramatic smoky eye, a more simple wash of color, or it can be used as a stunning eyeliner. After applying the cream shadow, you simply pat on the Celestial Powder shadow on top, and the end result is absolutely stunning.
I am a big fan of the TOM FORD BEAUTY Cream & Powder Eye Color formulas from earlier collections, and think Night Sky is truly gorgeous. I will say, however, that I did notice a slight difference in the formula of both the of the shadows in this duo. First, the Cream Shadow feels a bit lighter and more emollient than all of my TOM FORD BEAUTY Cream Shadows (both the singles and the Cream & Powder Duos), but this doesn't appear to be a negative. It spreads evenly and builds with ease, and the color achieves full opacity quickly. The Celestial Powder is more stiff and dry than the those in the earlier duos, and I thought that it might swatch in a patchy uneven way, but it did not. While I do prefer the creamier texture associated with the earlier Celestial Powders, I was ultimately quite pleased with the performance of the powder shadow in TOM FORD BEAUTY Cream & Powder Eye Color in Night Sky.

According to TOM FORD BEAUTY,

Tom Ford's unique double-decker component will feature two beloved Tom Ford Eye formulas: The bottom portion of the jar will house the Luminous Tom Ford Cream Color for eye and the top portion of the cap will house the Celestial-like Powder Eye Shadow.

The shades can be worn alone or layered, delivering multiple finishes and looks. The cream shadow illuminates eyes with a lustrous, sexy glow. Top off the cream shadow with the sparkling, celestial powder shadow for a shimmering and alluring look. Formula is long-wearing, non-creasing, and stay color true.

Note the way that these shadows capture the light. While the Celestial Shadow looks more blackened alone, it does transform the cream shadow into one with far greater luminosity and sparkle.
Overall Assessment: TOM FORD BEAUTY Cream & Powder Eye Color in Night Sky is a lovely duo. While the texture of both shadows differ from the previous Cream & Powder Eye Color Duos, this  is still a very nice duo. Do you need it? Of course not, but if you love the color, and would wear it often enough to justify the expense, then you might not be able to resist this regal color. I haven't yet purchased it, but I am seriously considering it.

    1. It really is a gorgeous color, and I'm definitely inclined to get it! The sneaky price tag, indeed! It's not as though it wasn't already exorbitant! Not that that ever stopped either of us! <3

  6. I am putting together a Tom Ford wishlist for Boxing Day, and I had a quad already (and a bunch of Lips and Boys lippies, thanks to you). Now it looks like a Cream & Powder Eye Colour duo is also going on the list.
