The boys are back! Tom Ford Lips & Boys 2015 will be previewed on TomFord.com today, and then officially releasing on Black Friday, the 27th. Here’s the good news: they’re all permanent! There are 25 new shades (though I spotted some overlap with past/current shades, more on that in reviews), which are the shades featured in this post, and then 25 returning shades (from last year’s launch). Each shade is $35.

I just received confirmation that Neiman Marcus will launch the Lips & Boys collection on 11/27.

P.S. — I did re-swatch the returning shades (since they are permanent, I wanted them in the larger photo size we’ve been using) — will post those shortly! :)

Tom Ford Naked Coral & Forbidden Pink Lip Colors

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). Buxom Coral Confession (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar). Guerlain Gems (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, warmer, glossier (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Demsey (P, $35.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Chanel Teheran (412) (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Estee Lauder Heavenly (P, $30.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). MAC Frolic (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Sweet Spot (05) (P, $50.00) is warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Bare Peach (23) (P, $50.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Dreaming Dahlia (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). MAC A Sprinkle of Magic (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, lighter, more muted (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Night Sky (01) Cream & 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).

Top 10: Luminous Blushes (Warm-Toned Edition)

If you’ve followed my favorites, you’ll know that I favor more shimmery blush, and specifically, luminous blush. The kind of shimmer that doesn’t read frosted or metallic but more of glowing sheen. Here are some of my favorites of the moment!

  1. Chanel Golden Sun (280) — A Warm Brown with a Luminous finish.
  2. Laura Geller Ballerina — A Warm Copper with a Luminous finish.
  3. Chanel Malice (71) — A Warm Coral with a Luminous finish.
  4. MAC Make You Mine — A Warm Copper with a Satin finish.
  5. Makeup Geek Love Affair — A Warm Pink with a Satin finish.
  6. Clinique Peach Pop (02) — A Warm Coral with a Satin finish.
  7. NARS Lovejoy — A Warm Plum with a Pearl finish.
  8. MAC Love Thing — A Warm Plum with a Luminous finish.
  9. Burberry Blossom — A Warm Coral with a Luminous finish.
