Black Cherry

Smashbox Black Cherry Be Legendary Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep berry with a hint of cool, red undertones and a natural sheen. There was very, very fine shimmer throughout, but it was sparse and only gave it greater luminosity but did not make it appear pearly, frosted, or metallic. It had semi-opaque, even coverage, which gave it a lip-stained-like appearance as the translucency was noticeable but even.

The texture felt moderately emollient with some slip, a light-medium thickness, and didn’t tug or pull on the lips when applied directly from the tube. This shade wore well for five and a half hours, left a soft stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time. I liked it overall, and I think the translucency and finish will be right up someone’s alley, though it isn’t quite the most “pigment-loaded” shade I’ve tried from the range.

I'll Teach You (05)

Tom Ford I’ll Teach You (05) 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 one of the brighter, deeper duos in the range, and it features a raspberry pink lipstick and a lighter, much cooler pink lip liner.

According to the brand, 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.

Jared

Tom Ford Jared Lips & Boys Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was velvety without too much slip but never dragged or tugged on the lips when applied directly from the tube. It had rich pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even color. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me, and the color wore for over six hours and left a stain behind.

Douglas

Tom Ford Douglas Lips & Boys Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium rosy pink with subtle, warm undertones and warmer gold and pink shimmer. It had more of a frosted, lightly metallic finish. The texture was fairly smooth, lightweight, and creamy enough that it applied without dragging or tugging on the lips. In my experience, the more shimmery shades have a bit more slip and feel thinner overall and are often semi-opaque, like this one. It covered most of my lip freckle but not all of it. The color wore well for four hours on me and was moisturizing over time.

ColourPop x Hello Kitty Hello Pretty Set

ColourPop Yummy Cookies Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Yummy Cookies Super Shock Cheek

Hello Pretty

ColourPop Hello Pretty Makeup Set ($42.00) includes two cheek products, three eyeshadows, and two lip colors. It is presently sold out (I’m writing this the day before), but there’s supposed to be a restock for the Hello Kitty collection at 10AM PST today (11/16), so you might want to keep your eye out if it’s on your list!

Overall, it’s a nice set! I didn’t have any issues with longevity across the included products, and they were, largely, consistent with past experiences with the Super Shock formula (pigmented, blendable, long-wearing) and Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick (long-wearing, pigmented but drying).

Tom Ford Show It Off (04) 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 plummy duo with a slightly darker, rosy plum lipstick and a gold-flecked pencil that matches in tone but is lighter in color overall.

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.
