Tom Ford Collin, Cary, Didier, Guillermo, Wes Lip Colors

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is segmented into color families, and this post features the “plums.” I loved how the range incorporated cooler and warmer-toned plums and from lighter to deeper shades. This was one of the better-performing families in the 50-shade range.

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.

Makeup Geek Prom Night, Taupe Notch, Unexpected Eyeshadows

Makeup Geek Prom Night Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “pale purple with hints of grey.” It’s a medium-dark, taupe brown with warm undertones and a gray-ish over-tone with a frosted, metallic sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, lightly buttery consistency that applied smoothly and blended easily. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear. Makeup Geek Mesmerized (P, $9.99) is darker. Make Up For Ever I544 Pink Granite (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Fall in Lust (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Illamasqua Mystify (P) is warmer. Maybelline Sleek & Spice (95) (LE, $6.99) is warmer, cream. Sleek MakeUP Paradise on Earth (P, $9.99) is brighter. Laura Mercier Sable (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, grayer. Chanel Gri-Gri (101) (LE, $29.50) is grayer. Urban Decay Midnight Rodeo (P, $18.00) is grayer. Urban Decay Bust (P, $18.00) is less shimmery. MAC Earthly (LE, $21.00) is warmer.

Chanel Audace (20) & Distinction (21) Rouge Allure Gloss

Chanel Audace (20) Rouge Allure Gloss ($34.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, warm-toned plum with fine gold shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on beautifully–the application was smooth and even, while the glossiness made lips appear plumper. The color lasted well for five and a half hours on me, and it was lightly hydrating over time. The formula is fairly lightweight with a creamy-gel-like feel with some tackiness. Marc Jacobs Beauty Shooting Stars (316) (P, $28.00) is browner, warmer. Maybelline Intoxicating Spice (070) (P, $8.99) is sheerer. MAC Looks Like Sin (LE, $20.00) is sheerer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Audacious, Ravishingly Rich, The Scene Ultimate Lipsticks

MAC Ultimate Lipstick ($23.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new and permanent formula with a shade range of ten (in the U.S., three additional shades available in Asia). The press release doesn’t have any real information regarding the formula, so going off of past years’ Couture offerings, it seems like it should be a hydrating, pigmented lipstick. The released was pushed back from late Semptember to an October 29th (online) and December 1st (in-store) launch, but I’ve yet to see it make its online debut (and I don’t have any updates). Let’s hope they pop up online come the 1st, but nevertheless, here are reviews for three more shades from the range.

MAC Cinder Eyeshadow Duo (Prabal Gurung)

MAC Cinder Eyeshadow Duo ($40.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a smoky duo with one more frosted, taupe shade and a more satiny, charcoal gray. The quality is decent but not excellent, and at this increased price point, they really ought to be top notch. The packaging is hefty and substantial, and you can certainly feel as if your money is going towards it.
