Tom Ford Lilac Nymph & Virgin Rose Lip Colors

Tom Ford Lilac Nymph (47) Lip Color
Tom Ford Lilac Nymph (47) Lip Color

Tom Ford Lilac Nymph (47) Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, light-medium bubblegum pink with strong, blue undertones and a fine frost. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a more emollient texture that was thinner and less cream-like compared to other shades in the formula. I wish it had applied more evenly, and it also had a tendency to slip into lip lines over time. This shade lasted for four hours on me. Maybelline Pink Pop (P, $7.49) is lighter, less shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Preston (LE, $35.00) is better quality, cooler, brighter (95% similar).

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

Tom Ford Virgin Rose (48) Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with subtle, cool undertones and a natural finish. It had good pigmentation, though not opaque, with a creamy, glide-on consistency that was comfortable to wear over a four hour period. It was, however, slightly streaky in the application and only lightly hydrating. Make Up For Ever M200 (P, $22.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

YSL Caress Pink (9) (P, $34.00) is warmer, brighter, darker (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Tom Ford Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to be hydrating, pigmented, and have a more luminous finish (there is also a specifically Matte formula available that is much flatter in finish). In general, the formula is semi-opaque to opaque with a lightly creamy consistency that doesn’t slide around a lot but doesn’t cling to the lips. I get anywhere from three to six hours of wear out of them, and most shades are lightly hydrating over time. The formula is vanilla-scented with no discernible taste.

Round-up: Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lip Colors (2015) Overview & Thoughts

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection
Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a set of 25 new and 25 returning shades (from last year’s Lips & Boys collection) that are now permanent.  The new shades all have shimmer in them, with the finish ranging from lightly luminous and pearly to frosted and metallic.  I think that there are several really interesting and unique shades in the new set of shades, but there are some that seem very similar to past shades (even from last year’s Boys) or the permanent range.  (That whole fourth row stands out to me!)
