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!)

Tom Ford Roberto, Tony, Joaquin, Theo, Jay Lips & Boys Lip Colors

Tom Ford Roberto Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brightened, medium-dark orange-coral with warm, red undertones and a dusting of fine pink shimmer. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that glided on without tugging on the lips. The formula was hydrating and wore well for five and a half hours on me.

Tom Ford Vladimir, Roman, Egon, Eddie, Derek Lips & Boys Lip Colors

Tom Ford Vladimir Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a pale, golden shimmer. It looked almost lavender-ish applied as it wasn’t fully opaque, so the taupe tones meshed with the natural pink found in my lip color. This is one of the more frosted shades in the range. It had semi-opaque coverage with a lightly creamy texture that applied fairly evenly. The color wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. If you want unique, this would be one of the most unique in the launch of 25. MAC Soft Sable (LE, $17.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford David, Demsey, Jake, Hiro, Eric Lips & Boys Lip Colors

Tom Ford David Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy gold with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It was more semi-sheer to semi-opaque with a lot of shimmer, though I didn’t feel the shimmer in the texture, as there was enough slip that it glided on unnoticeably. It could have applied more evenly. It was neither drying nor hydrating during the three and a half hours it lasted. I think this shade works better layered over lipstick or liner or paired with gloss.

Tom Ford Louis, Jude, Malik, Daniel, Drake Lips & Boys Lip Colors

Tom Ford Louis Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, cool-toned pink with strong, blue undertones and a white base. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with fine white pearl that gave it a more frosted sheen, but the texture itself wasn’t that emollient, so it looked almost like a “matte frost” in finish. It glided on without tugging on the lips, but there was some visible streaks. This shade lasted for four hours, was lightly drying, and pulled into lip lines to a moderate degree. MAC Raspberry Swirl (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, glossier (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Lilac Nymph (47) (P, $50.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Naughty Saute (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Pink Nouveau (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).
