Tom Ford Eye Shadow Quad Disco Dust Review and Swatch – Spring 2016 Collection

February 18, 2016

Today’s review is for the Tom Ford Eye Shadow Quad Disco Dust from the Spring 2016 collection. It was definitely one of the highlights of my shopping spree when I was in Hawaii. After seeing the pictures of Tom Ford’s new collection online for a while, my heart just fluttered when I saw them in real life at my favorite store Neiman Marcus. Disco Dust is beyond gorgeous, more than I imagined for a neutral lover like myself. Another color that I highly recommend is the Honeymoon, and unfortunately it was all sold out in the store while I was there.


I have done many reviews for the Tom Ford eye shadow palettes in the past so I won’t repeat my thoughts for them as they are all consistent in terms of texture and quality.  Disco Dust contains one sparkly shade which is the lightest shade, and the other 3 shades have very fine shimmer and apply to a silky satin finish. All of the shades are a dream to apply, and are all highly pigmented.

I have included lots of pictures in this post as I wanted to show you how gorgeous the colors are. Overall this palette leans slightly warm with a dominant undertone of rosey copper (as you would see in my comparison pictures below). It is the warmest comparing to the other highly popular neutral quads from Tom Ford such as Golden Mink and Nude Dip, and the finish is the least shimmery.

Shade Description:

Top left: Silvery white with a hint of silvery taupe undertone (sparkly)

Top right: Medium golden brown (shimmer)

Bottom left: Rusty coppery brown with a rose gold undertone (shimmer)

Bottom right: Charcoal with purple shimmer

Hi Reika! I just purchased Disco Dust as well as Honeymoon from the Spring releases, and I absolutely love them both. This is my first experience with Tom Ford quads, and I couldn’t agree with you more that the quality is absolutely top notch. Nude Dip is next on my list to try, as I’ve found the pigmentation and texture of Honeymoon to be incredible, and the formula is identical to that of Nude Dip. Love you blog by the way, I’ve been a lurking reader for about five years now, even though I don’t usually comment 😀 Xx

Hi dear thank you so much for your sweet comment 🙂 So flattered and good to know you are also enjoying your Tom Ford. Buying TF is an addiction…I can’t wait to get my hands on Honeymoon!

Hi Reika, love your review. Please post an FOTD using this quad when you have time. I want to learn how you put on your eye makeup. So pretty!! If you have to choose one: nude dip, golden mink, disco dust or honeymoon, which one do you like most? Thanks 🙂


Reika June 27, 2016 at 1:23 pm

Yes it’s on my to-do list. Will post a review by this week hopefully 🙂 Oh tough choice, I really love them all…honeymoon is good for fall, disco dust and golden mink are great colors to wear all year round (golden mink has a glitter shade which might put some people off), so it will be a tie between nude dip and disco dust!
