I bought Cle de Peau’s Satin Moon or #305 eyeshadow quad first then fell into the hype and bought Tom Ford Nude Dip while visiting the awesome mall in Dallas North Park. I live in Montana and haven’t been to a mall in 18 months and Dallas was awesome.
So I’ve heard they were considering Cle de Peau a dupe. So I swatched them both. Cle de Peau 305 is silky, buttery and usually more shimmery for my tastes. It has a golden champagne, shimmery bronze, shimmery taupe, and dark brown/grey with multi colored micro glitter. It’s layerable and the first 3 colors are not glittery just some shimmer. I dislike the glitter in the last color but it’s not too noticeable. The quad is so soft and buttery and after swatching Tom Ford Nude Dip it’s darker/more pigmented and less metallic.
Tom Ford Nude Dip is my first Tom Ford quad. I never liked the glitter of the old ones so I skipped them. This one looked more shimmery less glittery. It’s silky, can be used wet or dry, metallic though but not glittery. It can be considered frosty. It applies almost sheerer with some shimmer dry. I have not tried wet yet. It has a light champagne, light peachy/pink(almost rose gold), shimmery taupe and the more satin less shimmery deep brown. The shimmer level in the deep brown of the Tom Ford matches the shimmer in the Cle de Peau. This quad if it had the shimmer level in all 4 shades as the dark brown would have been to die for holy grail for me. But the shimmer and frost/metallic is almost too much for me. I need more time to play with it but it makes the Cle de Peau look more neutral/natural. In essence when I first saw the Cle de Peau I thought it was too shimmery for me on a daily basis quad, but after the Tom Ford it looks like that daily quad. In my opinion they are not dupes, similar ideas. Depends what you prefer I feel.
