Tom Ford Cala di Volpe, Carriacou, Mustique, Pipa Moisturecore Lip Colors

Tom Ford Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is supposed to have two formulas in one. The center is described as a “liquid core” that “provides luxurious moisture” while the exterior is hydrating, has golden pearl, and yields a “soft veil of lightweight color that lasts for hours.” The formula is lightweight, moderately emollient, and somewhat hydrating. It didn’t have great longevity as wear ranged from two to four hours depending on the shade. They don’t really have a “soft veil” of color, as most of them are fairly pigmented. It is vanilla-scented with no discernible taste. In general, the formula is a little heavier but has noticeably less shine than the also-new Ultra-Rich Lip Colors.

Too Faced 1998 & Bend and Snap! Melted Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is supposed to apply l ike a gloss but dry to “an ultra-matte, opaque finish” that is “never dry, shriveled, or cracked” that should “last for hours.” Most of the shades are unforgiving once they dry down and emphasize lip lines, look “cracked” if you smile, though they feel lighter-weight than they look. It’s one of the more unflattering liquid lipsticks I have tried as many shades highlighted lip lines, and while the lipstick itself wasn’t extremely clingy, there was a dryness present there that, at times, made my lips tingle/ache. For me, the wear was between four and six hours, as a lot of the shades faded unevenly and were faster to breakdown than the average liquid lipstick. The formula is thin, more water-like (reminded me of ColourPop’s formula but sometimes thinner) with a fairly quick dry-down time.

Tom Ford Revolve Around Me, Solar Affair, Temptation Waits Ultra-Rich Lip Colors

Tom Ford Revolve Around Me Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium peachy-beige with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly, but it was the least even of the six (it also seemed the least pigmented). Some of the color gathered and emphasized lip lines when applied. I think this one would benefit from a lip liner or filling primer. It wore for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Scandola (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Truffle Tease (930) (P, $7.49) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Choker (LE, $5.00) is less glossy (90% similar). NARS Little Darling (DC, $26.00) is less shimmery, less glossy (90% similar). NARS Besame Mucho (LE, $29.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Cozy Up (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Freckletone (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Julia (404) (P, $37.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Aphrodite & Les Mepris Ultra-Rich Lip Colors

Tom Ford Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new lipstick formula in the summer collection. It’s supposed to have “full coverage, high-shine lip color” that hydrates and lasts for six hours. The pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to mostly opaque, but they have moderate slip and a thinner texture that they never reach full coverage. The formula does have a luminous finish with slight shine but isn’t glossy. It’s a very lightweight formula, which makes it comfortable to wear, but the more emollient, thinner consistency seemed to hurt longevity–they lasted between three and five hours for me. The formula was lightly to moderately hydrating on me–more hydrating than Tom Ford’s standard lipstick on the whole–and had a light vanilla scent.

MAC Future MAC Mineralize Glass

MAC Mineralize Glass ($23.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a sheer, hydrating gloss with “modern shine.” It was hard to find coverage information, but on MAC’s new website, when you look under “Lip Gloss,” they describe it as such. They feel like lighter-weight Lipglass with less tackiness, but they’re more of a medium-weight gloss with a moderately tacky texture that’s lightly hydrating and wears between two and four hours (depending on the shade). They are vanilla-scented and run sheerer, so they often run together and may be harder to differentiate applied.

MAC Future MAC Mineralize Lipsticks

%252Fc%252Fmac-cosmetics%253Forigin%253Dbrandindex”>MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be a “lightweight” formula that “nourishes lips with maximum moisture” with “long-lasting colour” that is “buildable” with a “medium-shine finish.” The formula has MAC’s signature vanilla scent but no discernible taste. The majority of the shades I’ve tested in this formula have semi-opaque to opaque coverage, last three to six hours, are hydrating, and feel comfortable to wear. Some shades will leave visible “lines” if you press your lips together, but it varies from shade to shade. All five shades are from the Future MAC Collection, which launches online on March 31st. Touch the Earth is a repromote.
