Tails & Top Hats

LORAC Tails & Top Hats Eyeshadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.41 oz.) contains seven eyeshadows housed in a slim, cardboard palette with a mirror under the lid. While it seemed compact, it contained quite a bit of product! I was more impressed by this palette than I anticipated, as the eyeshadows were pigmented with soft, blendable textures and lasted a decent length of time. The formula runs thinner and soft enough that it can be dusty, so it will wear longer over a primer for sure, but I didn’t have any trouble getting pigmentation or applying them without primer.

This palette is exclusive to Ulta as a Black Friday doorbuster, which means that it will be available today (November 24th) at 5PM CT.

Make Me (08)

Tom Ford Make Me (08) 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 features a deeper, muted plum with warmer undertones and a lighter, cooler plum lip pencil (I don’t think they match that well, actually).

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.

I Get So OOC

MAC I Get So OOC Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, plummy brown with subtle, warm undertones and gold, red, and pink pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The consistency was soft, lightly emollient, and didn’t tug on the lips when applied directly from the tube. The color lasted for four hours on me.

Nicholas

Tom Ford Nicholas Lips & Boys Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a very deep red–almost burgundy–with a semi-matte finish. This shade was one of the most matte finishes in the line-up. It had mostly opaque coverage with a firmer texture, but it did not drag or pull on the lips–it was just creamy enough not to do so. The color was still going strong after six hours of wear, and it left behind a strong stain. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating to me.

A/W '16

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.
