Tom Ford Beauty Automatic Shade & Illuminate Lips

Tom Ford Beauty Automatic Shade & Illuminate Lips

Tom Ford Beauty Automatic Shade & Illuminate Lips

Automatic

Tom Ford Beauty Automatic Shade & Illuminate Lips ($60.00 for 0.12 oz.) contains a light, pinky beige and a warmer, medium brown. Both shades had a more satin-to-cream finish rather than “velvet matte.” They were pigmented, average wearing (three to four hours), and hydrating.

Shade & Illuminate Lips 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.

Prismatic Amethyst

Becca Prismatic Amethyst Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38.00 for 0.25 oz.) is described as a “lavender duo-chrome.” It’s a pale pink with cooler undertones and fine gold, pink, and violet pearl. As far as the shift went, I tried to detect it but found it very subtle–at most I saw a very subtle gold to lilac shift. The finish was a soft, luminous sheen and far less shiny and metallic on the skin, even applied heavily, than the majority of the shades in the same formula. On my skin tone, it was barely perceptible on its own, though it was more apparent if I layered it over other blushes (particularly pinks, berries, and plums).

It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that was easy to sheer out (lighter hand, more feather brush) for less coverage, if desired. The texture was fairly soft and smooth, easily blended on the skin, and sat well on my skin without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture or the look my pores. The highlighter wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.
