Tom Ford Naked Coral & Forbidden Pink Lip Colors

Tom Ford Naked Coral (21) Lip Color
Tom Ford Naked Coral (21) Lip Color

Tom Ford Naked Coral (21) Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky-coral with warm undertones and fine gold shimmer. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that glided on the lips without tugging but wasn’t too thick or too slippery, so it didn’t slide around or feel heavy on. The color lasted for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating. NYX Haute Melon (P, $4.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Fever (P, $39.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Charmed (P, $30.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Razzledazzler (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Tom Ford Forbidden Pink (22) Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and fine pearl shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy consistency that had a little more slip than Naked Coral and had a thinner feel to it overall compared to much of the Lip Color range. The color wore well for three and a half hours and was hydrating while worn. Surratt Beauty Perfectionniste (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Flamingo (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Have We Met? (108) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Tom Ford Night Sky (01) Cream & Powder Eye Color

Tom Ford Night Sky (01) Cream and Powder Eye Color
Tom Ford Night Sky (01) Cream and Powder Eye Color

Tom Ford Night Sky (01) Cream and Powder Eye Color ($66.00 for 0.31 oz.) includes a full-sized powder eyeshadow and full-sized cream eyeshadow housed in a two-tiered component. They worked well together, but both were weaker on their own and less impressive as a result. The cream eyeshadow was hard to apply evenly; the darker color paired with greater slip yielded sheerer, streakier results, but the formula is buildable and opaque in two layers, so it can work. I just don’t think it’s as good as past iterations of the cream eyeshadow formula (which I’m normally a huge fan of).

Also, surprised to see this product already increase by $6 since the last release!

Night Sky (Powder) is a muted, blackened blue with hints of gray and multi-colored shimmer (primarily violet, blue, and aquamarine) over a mostly matte base. The texture was soft, smooth, and thinner than most Tom Ford eyeshadows that I’ve come across. It had good color payoff, but it was prone to sheering out a bit in practice, so it is a shade better applied over the cream eyeshadow or over a base and patted on, rather than swept on, if you want to maintain intensity. The color lasted for eight hours on me. NARS Giove (P, $29.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Shaken Not Stirred (P) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced De La Mer (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Night Sky (Cream) is a blackened navy blue with fine shimmer that gives it a pearly sheen. It was very pigmented, but it was also quite emollient, yet thick, which made it apply with more semi-opaque coverage. I was able to layer to get totally opaque coverage, but it was very difficult to do in just one stroke. The color looked streaky without a second layer as well. Once it dried down, the color didn’t budge or fade for twelve hours. MAC Aphrodisiatic (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Thru the Night (DC, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Shop & Drop (LE, $16.00)(95% similar). NARS Glenan (P, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Blue Onyx (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Imaginary (P, $18.50) is less shimmery (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #2 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Ubangi (P, $25.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC No Taboos (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Les Ombres de Nuit #3 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Minuit (02) (P, $39.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced De La Mer (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Burberry Midnight Blue (P, $29.00) is lighter (85% similar). Milani Bella Navy (09) (P, $4.49) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS Dark Rite (P, $24.00) is lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals Climax (P) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS Giove (P, $29.00) is warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Baby T (LE, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Black Out Nail Lacquer

Tom Ford Black Out Nail Lacquer
Tom Ford Black Out Nail Lacquer

Tom Ford Black Out Nail Lacquer ($35.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a deep, gray-black with very fine silver shimmer paired with cool undertones. Color Club Show Time (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). L'Oreal Drop Dead Gorgeous (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Illamasqua Creator (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Cosmic (LE, $27.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). L'Oreal The Queen's Ambition (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Batty (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, darker, glossier (90% similar). Rescue Beauty Lounge Fashion Polish (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It was nearly opaque in a single coat, though I applied two for good measure. The consistency was not too thick or too thin, so it flowed easily across the nail with even coverage and didn’t gather along the edges. I didn’t notice any brush strokes, bubbling, or unevenness, and the shimmer is so fine that the nail feels completely smooth once everything dries down. I think that the shimmer is almost too fine, because it does get lost in the strong black base; it almost provides more of a break in the way it looks as far as texture goes than being a shimmery shade. On me, the polish wore well for seven days with minor tip wear but no chipping.

Tom Ford Plum Ombre Eye & Cheek Shadow

Tom Ford Plum Ombre Eye & Cheek Shadow ($65.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky-plum with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. Tarte Exposed (P, $28.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Corol #2 (LE, $22.00)(90% similar). Surratt Beauty La Vie En Rose (P, $32.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Tarte Unearthed (LE, $28.00) is darker (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sadly, if you thought yesterday’s review of Pink Ombre was dismal, I fear today’s is even worse. In an attempt to swatch the lighter side of the powder, there’s almost no product transference onto my skin; I can see a very, very slight change in the “finish” of the area where I attempted to swatch the product. I had to use a metal spatula to scrape off layers of product–essentially converting it into a loose powder–in order to get coverage or any use out of it. The included applicator is worthless and doesn’t apply any color at all (though the bristles were tinted by the product, but the powder never left the bristles!). This powder had one of the stiffest textures I’ve encountered; it is pressed so firmly into the pan that it is difficult to get any color payoff, and it makes it challenging to apply to the skin as it doesn’t blend out well and require layer upon layer of dismal color to achieve noticeable coverage at all. On cheeks, the color lasted for six hours, and on eyes, five hours.
