Tom Ford Pink Lust Lip Lacquer
Tom Ford Pink Lust Lip Lacquer ($30.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “light pink with golden pearl.” It’s a warm, peachy-beige with pink, gold, and champagne micro-shimmer. Revlon Sunset Peach is more orange. MAC Pure Flattery is also more orange. Guerlain Sable Show is lighter. Bobbi Brown Pink Gold is similar but slightly pinker. Hourglass Imagine is more golden. MAC Nymphette is slightly pinker and more frosted. Cle de Peau #2 has a stronger golden sheen.
This feels and acts like a lipgloss-balm hybrid product but, on the upside, comes with the amount more typical of a balm (0.50 fl. oz., whereas a lot of glosses are around 0.20 fl. oz.), which makes this a “good deal,” as far as Tom Ford Beauty products go. It’s an easy-to-wear color that blends with the natural pink tones to the lip and adds a frosted shimmer and subtle sheen to reflect light. The coverage is semi-sheer to semi-opaque; there’s enough shimmer that it helps to disguise my lip freckle but not so much coverage that it will mask the natural lip color. (And if you have more pigmented lips, I would expect this to adapt and look more like your natural lip color slightly lightened with shimmer.) It’s lightweight, emollient, and wears two to three hours on me (I normally see an average of three to four hours for gloss). It was nicely hydrating, though, which was a nice benefit.
