When an influencer get’s influenced is the name of my game most of the time, and that’s how I became the proud owner of Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color in Gigolo, the most gorgeous bronze gold cream eyeshadow that’s been lighting up my eyes for the past couple of weeks.
As much as I love a well-blended, three to four eyeshadow look (and you know I do), on a daily basis I really just don’t have the time to sit down and put my artistic side to work.
With mom and life duties before me, I have just a few seconds to throw something on, which is why I’ve been loving cream eyeshadows lately. MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork is a go-to, but I was looking for something more, and when I saw a swatch of Gigolo, I knew this unique color had to be mine.
As Tom Ford is a luxury beauty brand, the price tag is definitely hefty. And so I dutifully waited for Sephora’s most recent Beauty Insider sale to indulge. The color is indeed stunning and I love that its effortless glam.
One thing I will note is that despite the price tag, it doesn’t work quite as well as the less expensive option in my kit from MAC. I do need to wear an eyeshadow base or else Gigolo creases up to no end. In comparison, Hourglass Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow in Vivid does not need a base, either. Gigolo is so gorgeous, though, it’s worth a couple of extra seconds to throw on a base.
My Final Thoughts: Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color in Gigolo is the amber/bronze/gold cream eyeshadow of my dreams. Simply gorgeous, but since it does crease up without a base, not perfect.
