Sunday Stash Shopping #40: Tom Ford She Wolf

I know, I know. What is Tom Ford She Wolf doing here? It’s a limited edition item released last year, and I missed it. Was it last year or the year before last? I really can’t recall. Feels like time goes “whoosh”… Anyway, I spotted this at Gummy’s blog sale, and Liz was quick to snatch it. However, she decided to let it go so I gladly took it from her 🙂 So here it is, lightly used, still in great condition.

The colours aren’t all that unique, truth be told. They are however, classy and chic. I’m not even going to do a brief review, because it’s pointless. It’s not available for sale anymore, unless you could score one from a blog sale. Like me. Kind of. Anyway, I decided to do a soft smokey eye with this, because hey, that’s my style. I used the far left smokey greyish taupe all over my lid and lower lash line then blended out the edges with the middle shade. Added a little bling smack at the centre of my lids and finished off with grey pencil liner and mascara. Voila! Here it is.

I have been staying indoors quite a lot the past couple of months, so I think I got a tad bit lighter. My Bobbi Brown BB Cream in Light is not light enough, so I mixed it with the CC Cream to lighten the shade. I just squeezed some of both on the back of my hand and mixed them together before applying onto my face. Here’s how much lighter it got. (Picture on the right) Top swatch is BB Cream in Light and bottom swatch is the mixture of BB + CC. A bit lighter and that’s just what I needed 🙂 It also became more neutral, less yellow / warm but the difference of undertone is minimal on my skin.

The other day, I wore ONLY the middle shade all over my lids and lower lash line + mascara and the look is much softer, more subtle but still chic. So far, I quite like this palette, and this is also how I do my base lately. Mixed BB+CC, conceal, powder. What have you been enjoying lately?
