Sunday Stash Shopping #49 : Tom Ford Naked Bronze

I debated with myself for a long time whether or not I wanted to get the Tom Ford Naked Bronze (LE). It’s not available where I live, so I had to get someone to help me get it, and it’s expensive. I only have one item from Tom Ford, that is the Cocoa Mirage palette, and while it’s good, it’s not amazing. I read up on many reviews about Tom Ford cream shadows and I haven’t read a single negative review. The cream shadow is a repromote (Spice) and I really like how it looks. So I bit the bullet and got it. Boy, did I wish I got the peach one too. I friggin’ love Naked Bronze!



Tom Ford Naked Bronze



I’m not going to review this because I bet you’ve read lots about it. I just want to say that my lids are normal to oily – not so oil slick that everything slides off, but when I use cream shadows, creasing usually happens after the 3rd or 4th hour if I didn’t apply primer. This Tom Ford cream shadow however, stayed on my lids without budging the entire time I wore it. I didn’t take it off until after 8 hours. The intensity of the color remained and there was no creasing. I was floored! It was definitely a WOW factor. A little goes a long way, and I could wear it sheer or opaque. When it’s sheer, it’s a light warm bronze and when I layer it, the bronze becomes beautifully metallic with a wet glossy finish. Absolute love.

I created 2 looks for you. One is how I’d wear it for a casual day out, and another is how I’d wear it for a night out. I use just the cream shadow for day, and for night, I’d add the powder shadow for more bling. Different lip color also changes the look dramatically. Here are some of the products used.



products used



The Shiseido blush goes with pretty much everything, so it’s a no brainer. For the day look, I used Coco Shine Liberte and for the evening look, I switched it out for something bolder in Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Heftiest Hibiscus. For the evening look, I also added more liner to intensify the look. I also used blue liner instead of black because blue and bronze are a beautiful combination! Both the photos were taken in different time of the day, hence the difference in warmth. The daytime look is warmer due to the sun and the evening look is cooler due to lack of sun. Either way, I hope you get the idea. This is the difficulty of not having consistent lighting like a ring light, or Kino Flo or something like that.

There you go. That’s how I like to wear Naked Bronze. Hope you enjoyed this post!

  • SO PRETTY, LILY. I do like the look of of the combination and each one alone, especially that gorgeous cream shadow (although ok, it looks like pudding to me, which sounds delicious, LOL). But I’m content with buying up all the Dior polishes I missed out on when I didn’t have a job right now, LOL.

    • Lily

      Ah, Dior polishes are beautiful! If I wore nail colors more often, I’d get all of them šŸ™‚

  • LOVE IT. I’m partial to cream shadows lately, as they don’t irritate my eyes like powders do, but I have creasing problems. This sounds like a good one though! I have to try and get my hands on this!

    • Lily

      I’m partial to cream shadows as well. Just looks more natural but I usually need to prime my lids first. This one, I don’t have to. Friggin awesome

  • I love the whole look Lily, so sophisticated! It think it pulls warmer on your lids than what it looks like though. No creasing is also something I look for in a product so big thumbs up. Like you, I can’t get Tom ford make up here (which is just as well for my wallet!). xx

    • Lily

      Haha Sofia. The internet is dangerous because even though Tom Ford isn’t available here, I could still get it online, if shipping fee isn’t crazy that is šŸ™‚

      • I was hoping you wouldn’t mention the internet for shopping… I didn’t hear anything! šŸ˜‰

        • Lily

          Lol lol nope you didn’t. You just read them. Bahahahahaha

  • Bella

    Gorgeous looks Lily!! i also love the bronze and blue look; Charlotte Tilbury Marlene Midnight is my go to for that. You should totally have gotten Golden Peach, it’s gorgeous too. And I’ve ordered another two of the Charlotte Tilbury cream shadows, I love them that much.

    • Lily

      Hey Bella, because of your glowing recommendation, I ordered Marie Antoinette and Mona Lisa. And I got a couple of color chameleon as well, because I got curious. I got no moneyz left and my wallet hates me.

      • Bella

        Woooot, I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!!

        • Lily

          And I can’t wait to try them! My first Charlotte Tilbury order šŸ™‚

          • Now I am really curious to hear what you think of Charlotte Tilbury creams!

            • Lily

              I’m curious myself! Hope they don’t disappoint. *fingers crossed*

  • I’m so glad you grabbed this! There is absolutely NO regret here because it’s SO pretty, and the formula just wears like iron! Stunning shade on you! <3

    • Lily

      Thank you Sunny. I love it so much! It’s so easy to wear too. Why does it have to be so pricey though? LOL! I’m going to try the Charlotte Tilbury ones and if they work just as well, I’d get all them colorz.

  • Ooooh, gorgeous, Lily!! <3
    The duo is so pretty, of course. But I am loving the navy liner even more. I should try this color combo myself. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Lily

      Thanks Lena. I love bronze and blue. When your new blue palette arrives, be sure to play with bronze too! šŸ™‚

  • This looks great on you! Love you for doing a day and night look. I also adore it whenever you use Heftiest Hibiscus because it’s so pretty on you and the name makes me smile! šŸ™‚

    • Lily

      Thank you Kristen. Clinique’s chubby stick names make me go “laugh snort wtf?” Lol lol.

  • Now this looks sooo gorgeous on you, OMG. And the combination with the red lip, you are killing (as always)!

    • Lily

      Aww thank you Sara!

  • Jaa

    Lily I miss your cute little freckles!!! >.< I love both looks you created but I'm partial to the evening one a little more! That lippie color is everything right now! šŸ˜€ Oh wait, this post is about Naked Bronze? ;D

    • Lily

      Hahaha I don’t miss those pesky freckles at all. I love Heftiest Hibiscus as well. A bright coral that glams up any look

  • Great looks! Tom Ford is always so tempting, but it’s great to hear it lives the hype and performs well! As others have said, that red lippie is gorgeous!

    • Lily

      Thank you Meiko! I’m glad it lived up to its hype too. Would be painful otherwise šŸ˜‰

  • Liz

    Love that Clinique lip colour on you, Lil! The TF shades are beautiful too but I’m no longer tempted by that brand. (Thank goodness!) Glad you’re enjoying it. šŸ™‚

    • Lily

      I’m a sucker for all things elusive. Lol! I think heftiest hibiscus will look good on you, Liz šŸ™‚

  • Oh so beautiful, Lily!! See, i knew you wouldn’t regret this! Golden Peach… it’s ok to miss that one.

    • Lily

      Ah good to know, but yes! Naked Bronze is beautiful šŸ™‚

  • Stash shopping is definitely my thing before I buy too but you can never regret a purchase like this! Gorgeous!

    • Lily

      Don’t regret it one bit!
