To begin with, I love Tom Ford’s makeup line. So, when he launched the Emotionproof Collection, this Spring. I was first in line to buy it! Tom Ford’s Emotionproof makeup came out just in time for summer. And, it is the most perfect makeup for this time of year ! The reason it’s perfect is emotionproof is waterproof. Therefore, you can swim in it, sweat in it, and have a good cry in it. Regardless of temperature, or tears, your makeup will not budge! Furthermore it will last for over 8 hours. Moreover, the collection includes Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color, Eyeliner, Concealer, and Mascara. Be that as it may, I’ve already reviewed the concealer. And, I don’t need another mascara. As a result, I purchased 4 of the 10 Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color shades, and an Emotionproof Eyeliner in black!
Mac Paint Pots versus Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color
Do you remember those Mac Paint Pots? Any Mac Makeover used Mac’s Painterly Paint Pot, as an eyeshadow base, on my eyelids. As a result, I still have a drawer filled with them. So, would you believe it if I told you Tom Ford’s Emotionproof Eye Color is Mac Paint Pots, in disguise? Bloggers follow each other, and we also watch the best of the makeup vloggers on You tube. One of my favorites, actually, she is my favorite, is Michelle Wang. Michelle is brilliant when it comes to makeup. Therefore, Michelle figured out that Mac Paint Pots are now disguised as Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color.
How can this happen? First, Estee Lauder owns Mac and Tom Ford Beauty. As a result, Estee Lauder, the mother company, owns the rights to secret recipes, and formulas that once belonged to her “children’s” brands. Hence, Mama Estee can now do whatever she wants with those recipes. In other words, Estee Lauder used Mac’s paint pot recipe that sold for $22 for .17 oz., and created the Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color, in a slightly bigger pot, and attached a $46 price tag to it. Naturally, the gods that be didn’t think anybody would notice. Unfortunately, today, it proves that the bloggers, and vloggers know their stuff! Kudos to you, Michelle! Please watch Michelle’s You Tube on the Tom Ford Eye Color Here.
Tom Ford, do you want your name attached to copycat fraud? It would break my heart if you did! And, as for you, Estee Lauder, your customers are savvy when it comes to makeup these days. Shame on you!
Even the colors of the TF Emotionproof Eye Color, in the matte shades, are almost exactly like the Mac Shades.
At least change them a little bit! THEY ARE A BIT TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT
Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color Packaging
To start, the Emotionproof Eye Shadows come in the signature Tom Ford Box.
In addition, like the Mac Paint Pots, the TF Eye color comes in a heavy glass jar, with a twist off twist on lid. There are two big differences between the two brands. First, Mac Paint Pots are in Mac Packaging, and Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color comes in TF packaging. Another difference is the size of the jar. The Mac Paint Pots are .17 oz. and the TF Emotionproof Eye Color Jars are .24 oz. So, the TF Eye Color Jars have more product in them. Although, not 24 dollars worth!
Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color Formula
Even the ingredients are the same, minus one or two inconsequential ingredients, that have more to do with color, in both the Mac and Tom Ford pots. Anyhow, the TF Eye Color is waterproof. It has an eight hour plus wear-time. Furthermore, the shades are opaque. Also, the eye colors are cream shadows. As a result, they have a slippery texture that is easy to blend, and work with. They do dry down quickly, but you do have time to work with them. Above all, you can easily layer them with each other, and with powder eyeshadows. There is nothing that sets this formula apart from the Mac formula . Except for, maybe, the price???
Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color Shades
The Emotionproof Eye Colors come in ten shades, and two finishes, matte and shimmers.
First, the matte shades, are almost identical in color to the neutral Mac Paint Pot shades. Even the shimmers are familiar. Don’t you think the shades should be different enough to be worth the price?
I purchased Minimalist, a light beige with a shimmer finish.
Naked Eye, a light brown has a matte finish.
Also, Brut Rose, a light pink has a shimmer finish.
Last, Casino, which is my favorite of all the shades, is a deep mauve shade with a shimmery finish.
There are six other shades. Four of the shades have a matte finish. They are, Abyssinian, a brick brown , Volpe, a light pink, Au Natural, a light beige, and Bengal., a deep beige. Then, Starmaker, a golden champagne, and Gigolo a bronze gold both have a shimmer finish.
Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color Last But Not Least………….
When I think of Tom Ford, I think high end, quality, luxury, expensive, worth it! That is what Tom Ford stands for! In fact, Tom Ford is on the same wave length as Chanel. So, when we purchase something from Tom Ford, we expect it to be high end, quality, luxury, expensive and worth it! As a result, we are willing to spend more money to have the luxury of a Tom Ford Product. Therefore, why would we pay too much money for a formula that we can get at the Mac Counter for $22 less? Furthermore, if you won’t change the formula, at least the shades should be different enough to be worth the high price tag!!!!!!
Finally, the makeup companies should know by now that times have changed! We all have access to the internet. We have access to information. As a result, we can’t be fooled.
How do you feel about the Mac Paint Pots and the Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color being virtually the same thing with different price tags? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
