I’ve got it bad for rose gold! — and Tom Ford Beauty’s $40 Pink Haze Cream Color for Eyes is fanning the flames of my desire…
How much do I love thee, oh peachy pink prince of a cream eye shadow with golden pearl?
Let me count the ways…
1. You’re flawless
Like Escapade, your limited edition Cream Color comrade in Tom Ford’s summer 2013 collection, lightweight Pink Haze glides along skin like an ice cube across glass, and the mousse formula lasts longer than a Duracell (easily all day) — no patchiness, creases or fading, even when worn without primer.
2. So flexible
Oh, the many ways to wear it… When I want that ’57 Chevy chrome-like shine but don’t want my makeup looking caked on or heavy, I’ll just layer Pink Haze. But if instead I crave a softer look, I’ll buff and buff until I’m left with a peachy pink golden sheen. And then there’s its power to work as a base for powder eye shadows, where it also excels, especially when it comes to peaches, purples, pinks, bronze and gold.
3. Flattery will get you everywhere…
Yes, it lavishes praise, particularly upon tans, or if you wear golds, pinks and corals well.
Pink Haze is even a conversation starter. Every time I’ve worn it on my lids, at least one person has stopped to ask me what I’m wearing.
The premium price doesn’t thrill, but I can see myself scraping the bottle clean.
I don’t think you can really go wrong with either Cream Color from Tom Ford’s summer collection, but if you’re trying to decide between Pink Haze and Escapade…I’d go with Pink Haze if you’re feeling bold and Escapade if you’re feeling casual.

As the Tuesday turns…
Just got back from a hot date with my treadmill (he only talked about himself), and now I’m looking forward to watching an episode of Scandal.
I’m almost finished with season 2 now (watching on Amazon On Demand), and the sh*t has officially hit the fan! The cheesy factor/force is strong in this one…but that’s half the fun, right?
What are you up to?
