Tom Ford A/W ’16 Lip Contour Duo ($53.00 for 0.08 oz.) contains a slim lip color with a twist-up “Lip Shaper,” where the lip color hides in the base of the component. The duo has a very light beige lipstick paired with a very light beige lip pencil (with sparkle), and the two are very similar in color and undertone.

The Lip Shaper is designed for enhancing and defining the lips, and it can be used to shape or “create an ombre effect” to the lips, while the lip color is supposed to be full coverage. Sadly, I really like the lip color formula in the duo; it’s very creamy, hydrating, and comfortable to wear with four to six-hour wear time, but the Lip Shaper formulation left a lot to be desired. I struggled with using the Lip Shapers as they often broke on me, as they were quite brittle, and the majority were very dry, so they tugged and dragged on the lips. They also had bits of sparkle, which did not work well for defining the edge of the lips nor did it work out for filling in the lips.

Thomas

Tom Ford Thomas Lips & Boys Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The pigmentation was rich and covered the lips with smooth, opaque color. The texture was less forgiving compared to other shades in the range, which I expect is partially due to the more matte finish, and it seemed more prone to making my lip lines apparent. It lasted for just over five hours, left a subtle stain behind, but some of the color seemed to gather in my lip lines over time.

Rainbow Interlude

MAC Rainbow Interlude Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a translucent pink with pink and silver pearl. It had sheer coverage and lightened my natural lip color a bit while adding more of a pink tint to them, but the effect that was more noticeable was the sparkle and shine. The texture was smooth, somewhat tacky, but comfortable to wear and easy to spread across the lips. It lasted for three hours on me.

Worth noting, the Lipglasses in this collection contain significantly less product than regular Lipglass–the tube may seem thicker, but it’s likely due to thicker plastic. MAC Lipglass typically contains 0.16 fl. oz. and retails for $16 (or $100.00/fl. oz.), while this one is $18.50 for 0.10 fl. oz. (or $185.00/fl. oz.). The tubes are very similar to the kind that Dazzleglasses and Cremsheen Glasses come in. None of the glosses were described as sheer (Lipglass is a “high coverage” formula, per MAC’s website), so none of them rated very well, though I think a few would work for layering or sheerer lip looks, if that’s something you like!

Dominic

Tom Ford Dominic Lips & Boys Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is an incredibly deep red with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a creamy, almost velvet-like texture that wasn’t too thick or too thin and felt comfortable on the lips while still having less shine. It seemed more emollient than it looked! This shade was still going strong after seven hours of wear and was hydrating the whole time.

All I Want

MAC All I Want Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, light-medium champagne gold with a lightly frosted sheen. It had medium coverage that was somewhat buildable but never made it to fully opaque on the lips. The texture was smooth, didn’t feel gritty from the shimmer, and applied evenly for the most part. It wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me. This is a repromote.

Tom Ford Secret Escort (07) Lip Contour Duo ($53.00 for 0.08 oz.) contains a slim lip color with a twist-up “Lip Shaper,” where the lip color hides in the base of the component. It’s a cooler, pinky-red set of shades with the Lip Color being brighter and glossier, and the Lip Shaper being more subdued and darker.

The Lip Shaper is designed for enhancing and defining the lips, and it can be used to shape or “create an ombre effect” to the lips, while the lip color is supposed to be full coverage. Sadly, I really like the lip color formula in the duo; it’s very creamy, hydrating, and comfortable to wear with four to six-hour wear time, but the Lip Shaper formulation left a lot to be desired.
