Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is segmented into color families, and this post features the “plums.” I loved how the range incorporated cooler and warmer-toned plums and from lighter to deeper shades. This was one of the better-performing families in the 50-shade range.

Collin Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy rose with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that went on evenly and was comfortable to wear. The consistency was lightly creamy, while this shade lasted for four and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Collin is the same as Indian Rose. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Cary Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a warm, plummy red with a satin finish. It’s darker and warmer compared to Collin with a redder tone to it overall. It had mostly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and looked smooth on the lips. It wore well for five hours on me, was lightly hydrating, and comfortable to wear. Cary is the same as Casablanca. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Didier Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a cool-toned, berry-red with subtle fuchsia shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly but the natural lip color will come through so those with more naturally pigmented lips may find this turns redder. The color lasted well for five hours, was lightly hydrating, and left behind a subtle stain. Didier is the same as Moroccan Rouge. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Guillermo Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a plummy brown with warm undertones and a very fine, softened gold shimmer. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy, easy-to-apply consistency that went on smoothly and evenly. This shade wore well for five hours on me and was nicely hydrating over time. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Wes Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deepened, burgundy-red with ruby red shimmer. It was semi-opaque with a very slippery, emollient consistency that tended to move around. I had feathering with this shade after three hours of wear (total wear time was five), and I don’t usually get feathering. It tended to sink into lip lines and could look streaky, particularly if you pressed your lips together. I think this one needs a lip pencil and to be applied using a lip brush to be wearable. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is segmented into color families, and this post features the “silver to blacks.” I don’t think that’s a very accurate description of this set of shades, though this doesn’t seem like a single family, as it is really white, brown, beige, and purple. The colors are interesting, but the performance left something to be desired with all four shades.

Casey Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a frosted white with an almost metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that went on unevenly and seemed to catch on imperfections I couldn’t even see (in person, at least, clearly they were there!). Applied, it lasted for two hours and was a little drying. The only way I think this one would work would be layered with other products. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Orlando Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium, beige-brown with warm undertones and a champagne sheen. It applies lighter than it swatches (or than it appears in the tube) with semi-opaque pigmentation. The consistency was lightly creamy but applied somewhat unevenly with some streakiness as well. It lasted for three and a half hours on me but wasn’t hydrating. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Peter Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a golden frost. It also had semi-opaque color payoff with noticeable translucency (so the more natural pigment your lips have, the more the color will look different on you) and I could feel a slight texture element from the shimmer. It lasted for three hours and was neither hydrating nor drying. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Stavros Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) was reviewed here.

Alasdhair Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a cool-toned, medium-dark berry with hints of red and silver and fuchsia pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage, where the natural lip color does come through. The consistency had a lot of slip, so while I didn’t experience feathering/bleeding myself, it’s one that I would be concerned about if you were more prone to either. The shade settled somewhat into lip lines over time, though it lasted for five hours on me. It was lightly hydrating over time. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Pure Marsala Matte Lip Creme

Sephora + Pantone Universe Pure Marsala Matte Lip Creme ($18.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, plummy red with warm undertones and a satin finish. Tom Ford Beauty Richard (LE, $32.00) is lighter, pinker. Tom Ford Beauty Negligee (LE, $50.00) is lighter, pinker. Guerlain Forever Brown (305) (P, $37.00) is more shimmery. Guerlain Air Kiss (304) (P, $37.00) is more shimmery. Estee Lauder Decadent (150) (P, $30.00) is glossier, darker. Bobbi Brown Plum Shimmer (3) (P, $26.00) is cooler-toned, more shimmery. Maybelline Untainted Spice (950) (P, $7.49) is is darker, browner. Chanel Farouche (122) (P, $34.00) is darker. Buxom Runaway (P, $21.00) is glossier. Burberry Redwood (304) (P, $30.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The formula behind this shade is supposed to be moisturizing with a “matte satin finish” that’s supposed to glide on with the “lasting power of a lip stain.” It had mostly opaque color coverage with a light-to-medium-weight consistency that applied fairly easily, though it could have been slightly creamier for more comfortable application. The color distributed evenly, and it looked smooth and even on. It wasn’t hydrating at all while I wore it, and it felt slightly drying towards the last hour of wear. On me, it lasted for five and a half hours.

MAC Touch the Earth Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Touch the Earth Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Touch the Earth Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “light wood brown.” It’s a muted, light-medium beige-brown with warm, yellow undertones and a soft shine. MAC Styled in Sepia (LE, $16.00) is darker, more matte. Maybelline Truffle Tease (930) (P, $7.49) is slightly darker, less yellow. MAC Shitaki (LE, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

This shade will launch on December 26th in-stores and pop-up a bit earlier on MAC’s website on the 23rd. There are four other shades in the collection (Be Fabulous, Luxe Natural, Dreaminess, and Style Surge), which are all are repromotes. The formula is supposed to feel “lightweight, non-sticky” with “maximum moisturizer and “long-lasting colour in a single stroke” (though the coverage is described as “buildable”). It was mostly opaque with a thin, creamy consistency that glided onto lips easily. For the most part, it went on evenly, but it can streak a little bit and will leave “lines” if you press your lips together. It was nicely hydrating, though, while it wore well for three and a half hours on me.

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is segmented into color families, and this post features the “corals to oranges.”

Presently, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, and Saks are both accepting pre-orders for the Lips & Boys collection; they officially release on December 26th (and will also be at other retailers and Tom Ford’s website at that time). Nordstrom also put up various trios (no savings, they’re $96 each) for pre-order. Neiman Marcus has a gift card event thorugh 12/16 that includes the Lips & Boys.

The Lips & Boys shades seem a lot smaller than the full-sized Lip Colors in their tubes, but in terms of actual product, it’s 0.07 oz. vs. 0.10 oz. These are actually cheaper by the ounce at $457.14/oz. compared to $500/oz. for full-size. I liked that the packaging felt the same as full-sized, just smaller, but it didn’t feel cheapened. The bullet of lipstick itself was also wide enough at the base that it didn’t feel really skinny or difficult to use, and it wasn’t prone at breaking at the base as some miniature-sized lipsticks are.

Luca Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, coral-orange with a frosted finish. It had a light shine to it but wasn’t really glossy or luminous. The consistency was lightly creamy and applied fairly easily, but some of the color pulled into lip lines early on. It had semi-opaque color coverage and lasted for three and a half hours on me. It was neither drying nor hydrating. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Matthew Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brightened, coral-pink with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. There’s a very subtle hint of silver/white pearl. The color was richly pigmented, comfortable to wear, and lasted for five hours while being hydrating over time. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Adriano Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brightened, medium-dark coral with a hint of pink and a luminous shine. It is very close to being orange, but there’s this tint of pink that is really visible (particularly against orange lipsticks)–which is actually what makes it a little more unique. It had fully opaque pigmentation that went on beautifully and lasted for five and a half hours on me. This was comfortable to wear and moisturizing while worn. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tomas Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brightened, medium-dark orange-red with lighter copper shimmer and a subtle, metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but there’s a definite translucency that allows the natural lip color to come through. It had a thinner, more emollient texture compared to the less shimmery shades in the range (like Adriano), which made the color glide on easily. The color wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Rafael Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brightened, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had intense color payoff and covered lips fully. The consistency was creamy, moderately hydrating, and easy to wear. This shade stayed on well for six hours. It is a very dupable shade, though. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tarte Glitzy LipSurgence Lip Tint

Tarte Glitzy LipSurgence Lip Tint
Tarte Glitzy LipSurgence Lip Tint

Tarte Glitzy LipSurgence Lip Tint ($24.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark pink-plum with warm undertones and gold sparkle and shimmer. Tom Ford Beauty Richard (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery. Tom Ford Beauty Negligee (LE, $50.00) is less shimmery. Guerlain Air Kiss (304) (P, $37.00) is darker. MAC Moody Bloom (LE, $17.00) is similar. Bobbi Brown Plum Shimmer (3) (P, $26.00) is warmer. NARS Falbala (P, $26.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Oh, Oh, Oh (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned. Chanel Bel Ami (P, $34.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The LipSurgence Lip Tint formula is supposed to be hydrating, have sheer color, and is mint-scented. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage with a fair amount of shimmer. The consistency is lightly glossy and glides on easily without tugging on the lips, and it feels moist and comfortable to wear, though it does slide around a bit (it doesn’t feather or bleed, but I do find a few stray sparkles outside the lip line after a few hours!). The color wore well for four hours on me, and it was nicely hydrating over time. I could feel some of the texture of the sparkle after three hours of wear.

This seems like it is the same product as Glitzy in the LipSurgence Lip Lustre range (which is listed at $16, marked down from $24, and the Lip Lustre range appears to be discontinued), but the packaging of the one I have for spring is in LipSurgence Lip Tint packaging.
