SS16 Luxury Eye Shadows: Tom Ford, Chantecaille, Cle de Peau

I have already posted about some new lipstick launches  but what about the eye shadows? Here is a selection of the most luxurious ones: Cle de Peau, Chantecaille and Tom Ford.   Cream or powder, single or palette – the choice is yours. Let’s take a look.

Cle pe Peau are launching brand new Cream eye color solo – ombre crème solo ($45 / 6g) which are “dewy cream eye shadow that transforms into a silky powder”, and they look gorgeous. I wonder what is the shade of that burgundy one from Lucia Pieroni’s Insta photo.  Is it 301? Probably, not.

Powder eye color solo limited edition – ombre poudre solo ($45 / 1g) “A silky soft long-lasting eye shadow that comes in three textures: shimmery, semi-matte and matte.”

This Tom Ford’s AW15 makeup look is my absolute favourite, I remember how much I loved it when I saw it over at Mary Greenwell’s Instagram for the first time. She is  a genius, I tell you. The thing is that you can actually already buy the cream eye shadow which is new; the other products used are a part of a permanent line.
