Tom Ford Pink Lust Lip Lacquer
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.

    Looks like another Estee Lauder product that I got as GWP years ago.

  2. It’s really lovely, but I feel like for the price I should be able to find a cheaper dupe…like the Bobbi Brown, maybe. I don’t mind paying for Burberry or Guerlain, but for some reason I have a block on buying Tom Ford.

  3. I bought this as well and I use it at a topper or days where I want a nude look. Yeah, this is far more than I would normally spend for a gloss, but I appeased myself and justified the purchase by the size of the tube.

  4. This doesn’t do much for me, but at the same time I like how subtle it is.

  5. Hazel

    Nothing special for $30.

    Tom Ford line of makeup seems so pretentious and overpriced.

  6. Another just totally stunning product from TM. I’m not in love with how it looks on the lips but in the tube… hard to beat on a gorgeousness scale (and I mean, that’s a big part of the appeal of TM, isn’t it?)

  7. Lauren

    To be honest, I’m not feeling it. It’s kind of bland looking, which is nice for some looks, but I don’t think it’s special enough to warrant the $30 price tag. It looks like it would be very easy to find dupes within drug-store brands. But I think part of my “meh” feeling about it is that I just don’t usually like frosty gloss/lipstick. I have to say that your foundation and blush look very good in the photo, though.

    I think Bobbi Brown Pink Gold looks more like what I wanted this to look like. (I just wanted it to look more like the promo picture of the girl!)

    • MIrely Maldonado

      That said, I’m glad you reviewed this. It might be saving me $7!

      • susan hwang

        Yes, but there is more product in this item so actually, you’re paying more per oz. for the bobbi brown. Just FYI

  9. Too frosty for my taste but it looks beautiful on you Christine!

  10. VickyM

    I would adore this if it was opaque, but as it is I wouldn´t buy it even if it was available. I will, however look at the Bobby brown and Mac similar colors listed by Christine :D .

  11. Stacey

    It would be nice to see what the inside of the tip looks like when you remove the top. Can you apply the gloss directly from the tip like the Estee Lauder one I got? Wish you had taken a picture of that.

  12. I think I LOVE this. Do I love it enough to pay for it…?

  13. ll27

    I think Smashbox Illume is just as pretty, if not prettier than this for a fraction of the price. I’ll pass. I was really hoping that this would be more beautiful than it is. Maybe it needs a layer of lipstick underneath, but then for $30 it should do it all, right?
