Tom Ford Moroccan Rouge Lipstick

The Sultry Season: Tom Ford Moroccan Rouge Lipstick

Tom Ford Moroccan Rouge Lip Color ($45.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a reddened plum with subtle fuchsia micro-shimmer.  It is nearly opaque, but you can see my lip freckle peeking through just slightly.  There’s a nice glossy shine while the lipstick itself is creamy and applies like a dream.  All of Tom Ford’s lipsticks are vanilla-scented but taste-free, and I get about five or six hours of wear with darker shades like Moroccan Rouge.

You can see previous reviews of Tom Ford’s lipsticks here.

Is this the right berry for you? Would you wear it?

The Sultry Season is a series of posts featuring deep, rich shades of brown, berry, plum, and wine lipsticks and lipglosses — just right for autumn — that runs through October 2010.

  2. What is that? some sort of blue/purple shimmer in this lipstick? very intriguing…

  3. baby in a corner

    This is beautiful. I swatched these the other day and I thought this and bruised plum were very similar. This is slightly redder but still…

  8. Melanie

    I always find it amazing, how many lip colors you can pull off, and they look so gorgeous on you! I feel like, every lipstick, besides nudes, just looks wrong on me :) You’re beautiful as always!

  10. Arantzazu

    I thought it would be more brown, but it isn’t.
    I like this shade =)

  11. Mara

    I bought this on a whim the other day and am soooo glad I did! It’s just the perfect fall shade for me. I’m sure there are some great dupes out there but what can I say, I’m just a sucker for pretty packaging… =]

    What are you wearing on your lower lashline? Looks so pretty!

  13. I have been desperate to get my hands on this shade for months, but I just can’t quite justify the purchase as I already own 4 Tom Ford shades, love them all. Will have to put it on my birthday list and hope people are feeling generous!

  14. Little Miss Sunshine

    Oh no! That’s not fair! Why does it have to be so pricey? I love the shade, though. I’m wild about berry colors in general.

  15. Really pretty! $45 though, wooo lord *clutches pearls*

  16. Eileen

    Gorgeous colour and consistency … luv it!

    This warm plum is perfect on you, Christine. The color has depth without looking heavy and it has a subtle glow thanks to the micro-glitter. It really brings up the warm tones in your skin and eyes and makes your smile look radiant. Perfection!

    Beautiful color on you, dear.

  20. Sara Jean

    Oh my gosh! Im so in love with this color! but Im a make up fanatic i love almost everything.

  21. I purchased this one when I was in Chicago and I love it! But for some reason I’m still reaching for my more neutral color shades…why am I so afraid of this color?

  22. Ebony Goddess

    i was all for it til i saw it was $45! thats a little bit too much for my price range. i think i will pray on it to go on hautelook lol

  23. Paintedlady

    It’s a pretty color but I wouldn’t pay more than $20.00 for any lipstick O_o

  24. Color is pretty, but the price is ugly. I have a price limit on lip colors.

  25. nicci

    Not sure if I like the color…I think too bright for me.

  27. Deb

  28. Lora
