Tom Ford Exposed & No Vacancy Patent Finish Lip Colors

Tom Ford Exposed Patent Finish Lip Color
Tom Ford Exposed Patent Finish Lip Color

Tom Ford Exposed Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark reddish-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a creamy, high-shine finish. The color payoff was mostly opaque with a translucency to it that gave it that stain-like appearance. The consistency was lightweight, comfortable to wear, but it does have moderate tackiness. This shade was still going strong after eight hours (glossiness lasted about six hours) and was hydrating over time. Giorgio Armani #601 Plum Vinyl (P, $38.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Suggestive (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Chanel Crushed Cherry (DC, $30.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

NARS Chez Claude (LE, $26.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford No Vacancy Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium red with warm, orange tones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had rich, nearly opaque pigmentation with even, smooth application that lasted all day. The shine was going strong for five to six hours, but the color remained just as vibrant with more of a natural sheen for hours after. Anastasia Punchy Red (-, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS No. 54 (P, $26.00) is more muted (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Stolen Cherry (P, $52.00) is lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Signature Scarlet (020) (P, $8.99) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Poppy (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Forever Darling (P, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Cle de Peau Bugatti Red (17) (P, $48.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar).

Shiseido Lust (RD305) (P, $25.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “lip stain with an ultra-glossy finish” that has “intense, vibrant color” and “long-lasting high shine.” The formula feels lightweight, almost watery, when initially applied but thickens and feels more like a moderately tacky gel after thirty to forty seconds. It had great staying power with the glossiness lasting for six hours and the color itself still going strong eight to ten hours later (after two meals and coffee)–by the end of the day, it has more of a natural sheen to it (like a lip stain) but looked even. I would forget that I was wearing it, which is a testament to how comfortable and hydrating it was throughout the day. The coverage is nearly opaque but has that slight translucency that you would expect to see in a lip stain. I didn’t experience feathering or bleeding on these two shades. It has a strong, vanilla cake scent–not your typical vanilla but something sweeter–and noticeably stronger than other Tom Ford lip products. The formula reminds me of products like YSL Glossy Stains, Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer but with a slightly thicker consistency. It’s a click-style product with a flocked, slanted applicator where the liquid color flows from. I’m not particularly fond of the applicator, though it is not rough or hard to use, but the flocking makes it harder to get really precise, clean edges (sometimes I felt like it gave a more jagged edge).

Tom Ford Caviar, Midnight Violet, Sphinx Cream Color for Eyes

Tom Ford Caviar Cream Color for Eyes
Tom Ford Caviar Cream Color for Eyes

Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) has eight new shades for spring. According to Tom Ford PR, the Cream Color for Eyes shades are limited edition, though a couple of stores/counters have said differently (and some have agreed). Worth noting, the jars are different and contain less, while the price has increased; the shade released last spring was $42 for 0.21 oz. and these are $45 for 0.17 oz. The jar is slightly taller with a shorter diameter. Practically speaking, I don’t think the missing amount is going to be “felt” by the user as they have been rather large, but I was disappointed to see the squeeze on both ends–price and quantity.

The Cream Color for Eyes formula is supposed to be “ultra-pigmented” and “metallic” with a “creamy formula” that doesn’t “crease or smudge.” The majority of the shades I’ve tried in the range live up to those things–good pigmentation but can be applied sheerly (use less and/or apply with a fluffy brush) or kept opaque (a little goes a long way) with eight to twelve hours of wear (no primer). They’re blendable and dry down fast enough not to crease too easily while you’re working on them but not so quickly that they don’t budge. I did find that a couple of the new shades were more emollient than past shades and did have a longer dry down time and were harder to keep out of creases (in this review, that would be Caviar, but it seemed to eek by just fast enough to set without creasing early on).

Tom Ford Caviar Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a dark, grayish black with silver pearl that gives it a strong sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage with a creamy, blendable texture that had a little more slip than the average shade in the formula but not so much that it took too long to dry down (so it didn’t gather in the creases as it set). The color lasted for nine and a half hours before creasing on me. Estee Lauder Grey Amber (LE) is less glossy (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Paris #4 (P) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). MAC Retrograde (LE, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). Illamasqua Graphica (P) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Asphalt (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Santeria (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Diane (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Midnight Violet Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark plum purple with warm undertones and a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. It had opaque coverage that could be applied with a lighter touch or blended out for sheerer coverage, if desired, though it was harder to keep coverage even and sheer (I think it may be slightly too emollient). The color lasted for ten hours before creasing slightly. Makeup Geek Drama Queen (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Illamasqua Queen of the Night (P, $25.50) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Bondage (LE, $19.00) is warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Uncut (P, $19.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Dior Hypnotique (881) (P, $31.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Sphinx Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm pink sparkle and shimmer that gives it more of a duochrome shift. This is one of the more sparkly shades from spring with larger particles in it, but I don’t get much fall out once it dries down and I leave it alone–the sparkles will drop down if blended while drying down/dry. The texture is lightweight, creamy, and blendable on the skin with good color payoff. It lasted for nine hours before creasing on me. NARS Outer Limits (LE, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Outer Limits (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Givenchy Palette Ors Audacieux #4 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek In the Spotlight (P, $9.99) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Fireball (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Gem (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Mai Tai (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Stellar (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). LORAC Unpredictable (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). theBalm Faithful (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Jones (LE, $19.00) is brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Orchid Fatale & Red Corset Patent Finish Lip Colors

Tom Ford Orchid Fatale Patent Finish Lip Color
Tom Ford Orchid Fatale Patent Finish Lip Color

Tom Ford Orchid Fatale Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a dark berry-red with cool undertones and faint fuchsia shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage that went on fairly evenly, but I noticed some of the color pulled into lip lines. I don’t think it’s as noticeable as some other darker glosses have been, and I didn’t notice it at a normal viewing distance. The consistency was thin and water-like going on but thickened and felt more gel-like with moderate tackiness after half a minute. It wore well for eight and a half hours with the glossiness wearing away after five hours. Tarte WCW (P, $20.00) is more muted, cooler (95% similar). MAC Perpetual Holiday (P, $24.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). NARS Plato's (LE, $26.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Berry (-, $16.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). NARS Deviant (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Modern Drama (LE, $20.00) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Black Cherry (-, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Chez Claude (LE, $26.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). MAC Lust for Life (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Red Corset Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, plummy red with subtle, cool undertones and fine pearl. This was one of the more shimmery shades in the range. It had mostly opaque coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. It also seemed to be one of the easiest shades to apply from the applicator as it gave very crisp lines. On me, the glossy effect lasted for five and a half hours, while the color still went on and on; after eight hours, it was still going strong. MAC Peer Pressure (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Smart Aleck (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Revlon Embellished (P, $7.49) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Suggestive (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Right Up My Alley (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Lust for Life (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Distinction (21) (P, $34.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Utterly Tart (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Black Ruby (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Cle de Peau Lempicka Red (18) (P, $48.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Dressed to the K9s (LE, $22.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Chanel Crazy Fuchsia (194) (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Erotic & Infamy Patent Finish Lip Colors

Tom Ford Erotic Patent Finish Lip Color
Tom Ford Erotic Patent Finish Lip Color

Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “lip stain with an ultra-glossy finish” that has “intense, vibrant color” and “long-lasting high shine.” There are eight shades in total; I bought three and was sent five, so I will have all eight shades reviewed shortly, while these were the first two I’ve finished testing. It’s a click-style product with a flocked, slanted applicator where the liquid color flows from. I’m not particularly fond of the applicator, though it is not rough or hard to use, but the flocking makes it harder to get really precise, clean edges (sometimes I feel like it gives a more jagged edge).

The formula feels lightweight, almost watery, when initially applied but thickens and feels more like a moderately tacky gel after thirty to forty seconds. It has great staying power with the glossiness lasting for six hours and the color itself still going strong eight to ten hours later (after two meals and coffee)–by the end of the day, it has more of a natural sheen to it (like a lip stain) but looked even. It does stain as well. I would forget that I was wearing it, which is a testament to how comfortable and hydrating it is for all-day wear. The coverage is nearly opaque but has that slight translucency that you would expect to see in a lip stain. I didn’t experience feathering or bleeding on these two shades. It has a strong, vanilla cake scent–not your typical vanilla but something sweeter–and noticeably stronger than other Tom Ford lip products. The formula reminds me of products like YSL Glossy Stains, Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer but with a slightly thicker consistency. The color range is more limited with all the shades being brighter, medium-to-dark in color, and between warm red and cool pink.

Tom Ford Erotic Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a medium, fuchsia red with cool, blue undertones and a glossy finish. It had good color coverage with light translucency that you would see with a lip stain. The color goes on easily and evenly and sits well on the lips. The color was still going strong after ten hours of wear, though the glossiness lasted for around six hours. The formula was comfortable to wear and moisturizing over time. Tom Ford Beauty Infamy (P, $52.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Weekend Barbie (-, $16.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Big Bang (P, $26.00) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Trinkets (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Revlon Adorned (P, $7.49) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Revlon HD Pink Ruby (515) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Let's Stay Together (P, $24.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). NARS Danceteria (P, $26.00) is lighter, more muted, cooler (85% similar). Giorgio Armani #523 (P, $29.00) is warmer (90% similar). Dior Mona Lisette (872) (LE, $35.00) is warmer (80% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Boom Boom (210) (DC, $28.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Infamy Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 fl. oz.) vibrant, medium-rask fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a high-shine, glossy finish and very subtle fuchsia micro-shimmer. It had very nearly opaque coverage that applied evenly and smoothly, but there was a slight translucency that gave it the appearance of a lip stain. The shine wore long at six hours, while the color itself lasted well for ten hours (when I removed it) — and it was still quite apparent and rich at that point with a more natural sheen than a high-gloss finish. It was hydrating while worn. Tom Ford Beauty Erotic (P, $52.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Anastasia Weekend Barbie (-, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Trinkets (LE) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Revlon Adorned (P, $7.49) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Revlon HD Pink Ruby (515) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). NARS Danceteria (P, $26.00) is lighter, more muted, cooler (85% similar). Dior Mona Lisette (872) (LE, $35.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I did find that a couple of the new shades were more emollient than past shades and did have a longer dry down time and were harder to keep out of creases (in this review, that would be Siren Blue).

Tom Ford Siren Blue Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, aqua blue with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation with a creamy consistency that had a wetter feel than most shades I’ve tried in this formula. The dry down took longer, and it was hard to keep from gathering in the creases when I tried using it on my inner corner/lid area; when I tried it on the outer lid, I had less trouble. Once it set, I didn’t get further creasing or movement until eight and a half hours later.

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

Tom Ford Burnished Copper Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a dark, olive green with warm, brown undertones and a metallic sheen with faint gold micro-sparkle. It was intensely pigmented, and a little went a very, very long way. The texture was creamy without being too wet, but it still blended out well. The color lasted for ten hours before creasing slightly. Urban Decay Stash (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Venom (P, $6.00) is cooler (90% similar).

Tom Ford Opale Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a sparkling, shimmer finish. It had good pigmentation with a creamy, lightweight consistency that applied well and blended out nicely, though some of the sparkle dropped below the lid as it dried down and was blended. However, once it dries down (and you’re not rubbing off the sparkles with a brush), there didn’t appear to be fall out while worn. It lasted for eight and a half hours before lightly creasing on me. NARS Shade IV (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Flirt (P) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Ricepaper (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Giorgio Armani #10 (P, $32.00) is darker (85% similar). Laura Mercier Sugar Frost (P, $28.00) is darker (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Platinum Cream Color for Eyes ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark taupe brown with warm, reddish undertones and a frosted sheen. It was noticeably warmer with stronger red tones than the one I have from before. It still had great coverage with a creamy, blendable texture that wore well for ten hours before lightly creasing, but the undertone difference was noticeable. Sleek MakeUP Python (P, $9.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Force of Nature #1 (LE, $21.00) is less glossy (90% similar). LORAC Mocha (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Tom Ford Lilac Dream Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Lilac Dream Eyeshadow Quad

Tom Ford Lilac Dream Eyeshadow Quad ($80.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a set of cooler-toned shades that range from pink to purple. Two of the four shades didn’t do so well, and the other two had minor issues (none were perfect, unfortunately). I think this quad in particular really is incapable of being used with decent results without a good primer (and adhesive base, if you want to use the glittery shade), whereas most of Tom Ford’s quads I think can be used without a primer (of course, a good primer will always improve your results!).

Lilac Dream #1 is a pale, light pink with cool, blue undertones and a frosted sheen. It had decent to good pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that blended out well, but it emphasized the texture of the lid slightly. It wore well for eight hours. Tarina Tarantino Delightful #3 (P) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (95% similar). MAC Dance Flowers Dance (LE, $23.00) is more muted (95% similar). Dior Jardin #4 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Diamond Dusk #2 (LE) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Cle de Peau Les Annees Folles #6 (LE) is darker, more muted (95% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #8 (P) is lighter (95% similar). Anastasia Touch of Lilac (P, $12.00) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I872 Pearly Pink (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Clarins Rosewood #1 (P) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). bareMinerals Muse (P) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Pink Frosting (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Dior Rose Garden #3 (LE) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Harpooned Heart (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Dior Garden Pastels #3 (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Whimsical (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Enchanted #1 (LE) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Pink Pearl (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Feminine Wiles (LE, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Fresh & Mint #2 (P, $21.00) is cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Looking Glass (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest.

Lilac Dream #2 is a bright, sparkling silver with cool undertones and a glittery, metallic finish. It had semi-sheer coverage with a slightly wet consistency (at least, that’s how it felt) that blends over the lid fairly evenly, but I had fall out over time. The glitter felt looser and chunkier in this shade than in the average sparkle shade in Tom Ford’s quads. I would use this with an adhesive base. Tom Ford Beauty Starry Night #2 (P) is cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Tinsel (LE) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Electric Illumination (LE, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Black Oyster (Eye Color) (LE) is darker (85% similar). YSL Indie Jasper #3 (LE) is more muted (90% similar). Lit Cosmetics Tinsel Town (P, $12.95) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lilac Dream #3 is a muted, medium taupe with cool undertones and a frosted shimmer-sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that was slightly dusty but didn’t look powdery on the skin and didn’t sheer out when applied. The color wore well for eight hours before fading. Tarte Wave (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Clarins Silver Plum (07) (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #1 (P) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Mixed Tape (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Cherie (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Clarins Rosewood #3 (P) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Up Too Slate (LE) is darker (90% similar). MAC Dangerous Cuvee (P, $18.50) is darker (90% similar). MAC Stroke My Ego (P, $18.50) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Smoky Black Friday #2 (LE) is lighter (90% similar).

Lilac Dream #4 is a muted, medium-dark purple with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly shimmer and faint sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage that was somewhat buildable, but it was finicky to work with. On one eye, it applied decently (not exceptionally well, though), but on the other eye, it was incredibly patchy (the photo of it in action is the best case scenario). I had trouble with the color applying and adhering evenly, so this is one that really can’t be used without a good primer in place. It lasted for seven and a half hours, though. Chanel Tisse Rhapsodie #3 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Elegant Friend (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Getaway (P, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar).
