I picked up Cognac Sable and Golden Mink and already have a list of the must-haves :D (Crushed Amethyst and Sahara Haze wink wink). They come with a large mirror and two applicators. The Cognac Sable quad I purchased mistakenly contains two identical applicators. The sale associate gave me the correct one on my second trip to the counter.
The kicker of the palette, though, is the coppery glitter. It reminds me of the highlight shade in Dior All-in-one palette. Dior's has creamy texture while Tom Ford's is a pressed powder glitter. Both are delicated and stays on well although they do move around on the lids throughout the day. Tom Ford glitter, however, doesn't fall down onto my cheeks or under eye areas like Dior's. Overall, I think Tom Ford's glitter has excellent quality and exceed that of Dior's. The best tool I've found to apply the glitter shades is my clean finger. I pick up the color then dab it on my lids sans blending. The glitter will move after a few winks.

Cognac Sable stays fresh for 10 hours on top of standard primer. Yes even the glitter look the same by the end of the day. Wonderful indeed but I expected it to perform this well for the price. The wearing is also typical for other designer brands, which brings me to the hefty price tag.
My favorite eyeshadow brand Dior delivers 0.21 oz of 5 eyeshadows with $59. If you desire the glitter in Dior All-in-one palettes, you receive only 0.15 oz with the same payment. In order to get 0.35 oz of product like Tom Ford quads, you'd either need to spend $96 for Dior's regular formula or $135 for Dior's all-in-one formula. That doesn't include Tom Ford large mirror. So if this quad were made by Dior, it'd cost you about $96 - $135.
Have you tried any Tom Ford eye color quads? What is your favorite?
