Velours Khaki

Tom Ford Beauty Velours Khaki Eye Color Crème Eyeshadow Quad ($89.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a new, cooler-toned color story that featured warm neutrals and greens across two shimmer and two satin shades. The formula is a cream-powder hybrid, though they have a more powder-like feel between the two and performed a lot like a traditional powder eyeshadow with respect to application. The magic was that they “melted” for a better look and feel on the lids due to the extra glide/slip.

Ingredients

Velours Khaki #1

Velours Khaki #1 is a soft, light-medium yellow with strong, warm orange undertones and a semi-matte finish.

  • Mostly opaque color coverage, buildable
  • Lightly emollient to the touch but felt more powder-like once applied
  • Picked up well with dry brush, blended out easily
  • Long-wearing (8 hours)

  • ColourPop Literally Me (LE, $4.50) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar).
  • ColourPop Bronco (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Formula Overview

The new Creme finish is supposed use “lush emollients” for a “crease and flake-resistant finish” that is “long-wearing” and “one-swipe” in application. It feels like a cream-to-powder formula but with a ratio of more like 35% cream to 65% powder, as there was a more emollient feel by touch but a stiffer brush could produce a little kick up when swirled in the pan.

The magic was when the formula was applied to bare skin, though, as it “melted” in a way that made the finish appear more seamless and skin-like, smooth without emphasizing skin texture or lines. They applied just fine using typical eyeshadow brushes and application methods that I would have used for a traditional powder eyeshadow.

The pigmentation ranged from semi-opaque to opaque, depending on the shade, but most were buildable if they weren’t fully opaque in “one swipe.” I found the eyeshadow formula very easy to apply and blend out, too. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before fading a bit.
