Tom Ford’s gorgeous gunmetal Caviar cream shadow is many things: enduring, easy to blend, and it’s basically everything you ever wanted for the easiest smoky eye ever (just add black liner and mascara), but none of those are why it holds a special place in my heart.
It’s special to me because it’s what I was wearing when Connor said the word “eye” for the first time.
Backstory: she already knows some of the words for body parts, so if I say “Show mommy your ears,” she’ll point to her ears. She just hasn’t said many of the words yet, but last week when I was wearing Caviar on my lids with a Cargo black pencil on my lash lines (my eyes were a little dramatic that day, which is how I roll on a Friday afternoon!), I was changing her diaper and talking to her when Connor pointed up at me and emphatically said, “Eye! Eye! Eye!”
Uh… She was pointing at my makeup! I was almost ready to ask Tom to be her godfather, haha!
Caviar cream shadow is available in the permanent line for $46. It’s a cool-toned gray with secret shimmer from little bluish silver flecks of micro glitter. At some angles, it reads almost like a blue-gray, which is awesome for classic smoky eyes with black liner on the water and lash lines, but it just really pops in general with dark blues or navy, sapphire — basically any dark blue liner.
If you’re all about rich, dark blue liners, try one with Caviar sometime, and have your mind blown!
Oh! — Caviar also rocks with neutral- or warm-toned nude pink lips IMO. This one I’m wearing is called MMMM from the new MAC Nicki Minaj. Love it.
