Tom Ford Burnished Amber is my second Tom ford Eye Color Quad. I know that these eyeshadows have recieved some criticism for their price, as well as the glitteriness and/or shimmeriness of a lot of the shades, but I think this quad is pretty flawless. For one thing, none of these eye shadows are the sheer glitter-infused texture some don't like. There are, instead, three shimmery shades and one satin. One thing that has impressed me about both the quads I have is the color combinations, which are perfectly coordinated.
The packaging is, of course, exactly what you would expect for the price, sleek and luxurious. I love the softness of the sleeve and it's good for polishing off fingerprints. It also has a nice, big mirror, which is nice.
The colors are absolutely perfect together, though unconventional.
The lightest color is a pale, warm gold with a very shimmery finish. It's too dark for a highlight on lighter skins, but would be lovely on darker skins. I use it primarily to blend out the darker bronze color.
The next color is a deep magenta-tinged pink with a shimmer finish. It's a very rich pink with a good balance of warm and cool tones. I think even if you don't think you suit pink tones, you'd find this color flattering.
The next darkest color is a golden bronze with a shimmer finish. Again, it's not overly warm nor cool.
The darkest color is a dark bordeaux with a satin finish.
The four colors can be used to make a golden look, a pink look, or all four together make a rosy bronze look. The versatility of this palette is one of its best traits. The pink-bronze tones make it very flattering to green eyes, which is one of the reasons I love it. It also suits anyone who looks good in jewel tones, as the richness of the tones would be very flattering.
I have heard rumors that this was being discontinued. It's still in stock as of this post at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman online, and I heard this rumor months ago, so I don't know.
