Tom Ford Beauty Impulse Shade & Illuminate Lips

Tom Ford Beauty Impulse Shade & Illuminate Lips

Tom Ford Beauty Impulse Shade & Illuminate Lips

Impulse

Tom Ford Beauty Impulse Shade & Illuminate Lips ($60.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a lipstick duo that features a formula that is supposed to have “rich color” and “adherence” with a “velvet matte finish.” The duos are designed to have a lighter shade and a darker shade, and they can be worn alone, mixed, or as an ombre lip look. There was also a dual-ended applicator–a sponge on one end and a brush on the other–but the sponge really did not work well to apply the color, as it yielded sheer coverage and seemed to suck all the emollient qualities out of the formula and left behind a drier, almost powdery texture on the lips. The lip brush worked, but for me, the tiny applicator was harder to control and took me three to four times as long to apply compared to a traditional lip brush (which has a longer handle).

The actual formula felt like there was a powderiness to it that is not present in any of Tom Ford’s other lipstick ranges, though the formula felt lightly creamy, thin but not too thin, and smooth. Once I applied the color and actually wore it for a few minutes, I did not notice the powderiness that was there when I was initially applying the lipstick. The lighter shade in this duo wasn’t quite full coverage and settled into lip lines, while the deeper shade applied more evenly and had better coverage. The finish appeared to be more like a true cream–a noticeable shine–and did not appear “matte” until halfway through their wear.

Two to Tango

ColourPop Two to Tango Pressed Powder Eye Duo ($10.00 for 0.10 oz.) contained a shimmering purple and a deep plum. The two shades complemented each other well, though neither was particularly standout in terms of quality. This duo definitely needed a primer and some extra effort to work well. This duo is limited edition and part of the brand’s Valentine’s Day collection. Some of the duos are sold out, and I really hope ColourPop will consider releasing the shades individually, at the very least.
