Tom Ford Ansel, Alex, Rocco, Austin, Kingston Lips & Boys Lip Colors

Tom Ford Ansel, Alex, Rocco, Austin, Kingston Lips & Boys Lip Color
Tom Ford Ansel, Alex, Rocco, Austin, Kingston Lips & Boys Lip Colors

Tom Ford Ansel Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brightened, light-medium peony pink with warm undertones and gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly textured consistency from the amount of shimmer in it. The color went on evenly and smoothly, but the consistency is thinner so I felt like the shimmer emphasized lip lines to a small degree. As a note, I really think this might be Quiver from the Lip Color Shine range, just an opaque, less glossy version (the colors are nearly identical to me). Tom Ford Beauty Quiver (P, $48.00) is cooler, less pigmented, lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Jake (P, $35.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Kiss Blossom (LE, $37.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Metallic Peony (P, $21.00) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Kelly (LE, $16.00) is glossier, brighter, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Surprenante (129) (P, $37.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar).

Tom Ford Alex Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and very fine fuchsia pearl. It had almost opaque coverage, but there was some translucency there that allowed the lip color to come through slightly. The texture was smooth and lightly creamy, so application was easy. The color lasted for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. This was a very dupable shade, in my opinion! Bobbi Brown Hot Berry (P, $26.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Flowerscope (LE, $17.00) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Raspberry Pink (P, $35.00) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar).

Tom Ford Rocco Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brighter, medium rose-shimmered fuchsia pink with cooler undertones and a metallic sheen. It was sligthly thicker in consistency, which made it feel creamier and apply with more opaque coverage for me. The color wore well for five and a half hours with a little bit of shimmer settling into lip lines after three hours of wear. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Estee Lauder Demure (LE, $25.00) is less glossy (90% similar). MAC Pink, You Think? (P, $17.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Hot Berry (P, $26.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty John (LE, $35.00) is more muted (95% similar). MAC Dance Off, Pants Off (LE, $17.00) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Lullabye (P, $21.00) is cooler, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Kingston (DC, $35.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Kat Von D Sexer (P, $21.00) is less glossy, cooler, darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Alex (P, $35.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). NARS Janet (P, $32.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar).

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

Tom Ford Austin Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and fine pearl shimmer. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy texture. I wish it smoothed out a little more on the lips, as it seemed to emphasize the texture of the lips more than other shades. The color lasted for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Bobbi Brown Pink Kiss (P, $26.00) is lighter (95% similar). NYX Blush (P, $4.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Nude Reveal (110) (P, $32.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar).

Tom Ford Kingston Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, bold fuchsia pink with fine, cool-toned fuchsia pearl. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a creamy, glide-on texture that went on smoothly and evenly. The color lasted for six hours on me, and it was moisturizing over time. NARS Janet (P, $32.00) is more muted, darker (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Hot Berry (P, $26.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Flowerscope (LE, $17.00) is warmer, less shimmery (95% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lip Colors ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) are “clutch-sized” lipsticks; it uses the same formula as the full-sized Lip Colors (which retail for $52 for 0.10 oz.), but the packaging feels the same, just smaller. Tom Ford’s lipstick formula 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). This year’s launch of Lips & Boys features 25 new shades that are part of the new “metallic” finish, and then the return of 25 shades from last year. 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.

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.

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 cooler, less shimmery (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 lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). NARS Glenan (P, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Shop & Drop (LE, $16.00)(95% similar). Bobbi Brown Blue Onyx (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Thru the Night (DC, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Imaginary (P, $18.50) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced De La Mer (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #2 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Minuit (02) (P, $39.00) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Les Ombres de Nuit #3 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). MAC No Taboos (LE, $22.00) is warmer, more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Ubangi (P, $25.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Giove (P, $29.00) is warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals Climax (P) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). NARS Dark Rite (P, $24.00) is lighter (85% similar). Burberry Midnight Blue (P, $29.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Baby T (LE, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar). Milani Bella Navy (09) (P, $4.49) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
