UP IN SMOKESI contemplated this palette purchase for an annoyingly extended amount of time because I’m pretty sure I didn’t need it. So off I went to dig through my humble eyeshadow stash. Whaddayaknow — despite my attraction to dark, smoldering shades of taupe, I realized I almost always end up going for browns and/or purples instead. It’s because I find taupes quite hard to pull off without looking like I got punched in the face. I remember trying Chanel Gri Gri on and just shook my head in sadness after confirming that the “KO”-ed look officially isn’t for me. So to say that She Wolf is a risky buy is a complete understatement. I only relied on swatches upon swatches of this palette that I was 95% sure I would pass. “Pretty, but I’m sure it wouldn’t work for me”, I kept repeating to myself. Well, I think I need that punch in the face now as I had another moment of weakness. “Life’s too short, buy the palette” kicked my previous maxim out of the bank. So, shipped from Neiman (Nordstrom didn’t carry Tom Ford yet when I bought it then) to My-Shopping Box and straight to my doorstep all with the cursing ease of GCASH-Amex, here it is —
3 Shades of GreyBasically, three greyish-brown-taupey shades in three distinctly different textures. A matte, a shimmer and a glitter. To be honest, I was not at all excited for the glitter part as I’m 99% glitter-averse but I was slightly swayed by the sparkly shade in this one. The colors also look more promising in person than they do on-screen, at least for me. TBH, it took me almost a month to open this palette and finally play with it because I was still debating on how I would feel and what I would do afterwards if yet again, the shades reject me.
SHADE, TEXTURE, PIGMENTATION & THE WORKSThe darkest shade on the leftmost is a dusky grayish deep brown. It’s verrry soft and silky and doesn’t take a lot of effort to show or build up. I did one heavy swipe on my arm below. I am a sucker for dark browns like these. Granted, it’s not at all unique that you can surely find other shades in your stash. However, this brown really transforms when layered on top of the second shade, which I’ll talk about next. The central shade. Just… beautiful. It’s a satin grayish taupe that I don’t think I can find a close dupe of in my stash. This is my favorite of the three, I think. It’s an easy-to-wear taupe that doesn’t leave me looking like I’ve been training for an MMA battle I’m sure to lose. It’s also quite enjoyable to blend because of how it transforms when mixed with the dark shade. The last one is 50 shades of sparkling silver that didn’t feel quite like powder eyeshadow, but more like a cream one. It did remind me of the Chanel Illusion d’Ombres without the plushy, bouncy feel. The two shades above are quite beautiful on their own and when blended together but topped sparingly with this, it glints! I mean, I was taken aback when I saw myself on the mirror and realized how sparkle could actually be subtle and not screaming, which I usually attach with glitter shadows like these. BUT, I did have some fallout issues with this one.
I’ve Found My Perfect (Christian) GreyAll kinds of thankful that I don’t have the dreadful punched-in-the-face look when wearing this. So yes, I do like this palette. I mean, I’m still loving my neutral browns and purples, but I’m warming up on greys and taupes now, too. I honestly thought I could only use this palette at night but it is quite wearable during the day as well if you use the glitter shade sparingly or completely skip it (I wouldn’t, though! I like the subtle hint of glimmer). I wouldn’t go as far as saying as it is a must-have, but since it’s one of the only taupe / gray selections I can comfortably wear, I’m bordering on yes. Also, I’m leaving you guys with a huge-ass OOTD I wore with this look. This was taken at the 5-6 hour mark of wearing and it hasn’t creased nor faded yet. Another Tom Ford gem, if I may say so myself.
