Tom Ford Casey, Orlando, Peter, Stavros, Alasdhair Lip Colors

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is segmented into color families, and this post features the “silver to blacks.” I don’t think that’s a very accurate description of this set of shades, though this doesn’t seem like a single family, as it is really white, brown, beige, and purple. The colors are interesting, but the performance left something to be desired with all four shades.

MAC Force of Nature & Natural Vigor Mineralize Eyeshadows

MAC Natural Vigor Mineralize Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “shimmery champagne peach.” MAC described the finish as “half pearl/half frost.” It seems less like a duo differentiated by finish and more like a traditional duo with one lighter and one darker shade, though they’re both in the same color family.

Tom Ford Kyril, William, Sebastian, Omar, Blake Lip Colors

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is segmented into color families, and this post features the “metallics.” Some of the colors are cool-looking, but I think the performance of the majority in the metallic family leave something to be desired. At this price point, you really should be getting near-perfection (if not perfection). There just shouldn’t be application issues like streakiness or patchiness. The only one I liked in this set was Sebastian, as it had the color payoff that was expected, but it wasn’t perfect, either.
