Tom Ford Photosynthesex Eye Color Quad Review & Swatches


Photosynthesex

Tom Ford Beauty Photosynthesex Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, permanent set of shades featuring a shimmery gold, shifting teal, muted plum, and matte teal. The color concept is very cool and interesting to see, particularly for a permanent product. I highly recommend giving the color combo a try with shades you may already own. The quality of the quad was a little too up and down for me, and at this price point, I would expect more consistency in quality.

Photosynthesex #1

Photosynthesex #1 is a light-medium gold with soft, warmer undertones and a frosted finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, thinner texture that was a smidgen dusty in the pan, but it seemed to sit well on my lid and “melted” slightly after a few minutes. It blended out easily and stayed on well for eight hours on me.

Photosynthesex #2

Photosynthesex #2 is a faded, mid-tone teal with a warmer, plummy brown base that shifted from bluish-teal to greenish-teal at certain angles. It had a more glittery finish, which gave it a more emollient consistency and denser feel to it. I was happy to see that it had actually yielded opaque pigmentation both wet and dry, so I didn’t feel like it had to be used wet to achieve decent application/coverage. When I diffused and blended it out, the blue-teal sparkles tended to diffuse without as much color, which gave an almost glitter-like top coat effect. It lasted for eight hours but had some fallout over time.

Photosynthesex #3

Photosynthesex #3 is a muted, medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage with a creamier, thin feel–it felt like it had extra slip–that worked decently over bare skin but had to be buffed on to even out. The eyeshadow stayed on well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Photosynthesex #4

Photosynthesex #4 is a medium-dark, greenish-teal with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented and had a soft, velvety consistency that was a smidgen powdery in the pan but didn’t have issues with fallout when I applied and diffused it into my crease area. It wore well for eight hours and didn’t stain my lids, which some deeper teals can.
