Tom Ford Sugar Pink Ultra Shine Lipgloss
Tom Ford Sugar Pink Ultra Shine Lipgloss

Tom Ford Sugar Pink Ultra Shine Lipgloss ($45.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is a light-medium pink with yellow undertones and a creamy finish. It’s mostly opaque in color coverage, but there is some translucency. The closest dupe I could come up with is Bobbi Brown Pink Sorbet, which is also a yellow-toned pink, though it reads a little beige-like compared to Sugar Pink, and it has shimmer. MAC Curvaceous is plummier. ¬†What makes it harder to dupe is the amount of color coverage it has–a lot of glosses are sheer to semi-sheer.

This formula is supposed to have a high-shine finish with good color payoff. The texture is very smooth and slick; it slides onto lips easily with a slight tackiness (but not what I would describe as a full-on sticky gloss). There is some settling into lip lines, which is less noticeable from a normal viewing distance but visible upclose. It has a sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste. It’s neither drying nor overly hydrating, though I would err on the side of slightly moisturizing. It’s comfortable wear while it lasts, which in Sugar Pink’s case was three and a half hours. The glossy finish does stick around for most of the time, which is longer than some other glosses.

It's a good gloss, but it's not the best gloss on the market. It's nice to see that it lives up to most of its claims--it has a nice texture and the color payoff is pretty good. There is some unevenness in application and settling into lip lines.

    That’s pretty but for $45…eh.

      My thoughts exactly … a lovely color but I can’t justify spending $45 on a lip gloss. Thanks for the review, Christine.

    $45 for a semi-decent gloss…I think not :-( Even if you would’ve given it an A+, I’d still have a hard time paying $45 for a lipgloss. Sorry Tom Ford, you’re cute, but not that cute.

    Color is pretty but doesn’t look good on the lips. Looks thin and runny. Too sheer for my liking. I will only spend that kind of money on Geurlain or Dior.

    pretty, but for not-top-quality, $45 is RIDICULOUS.

    Hmmmm. I have a gloss from nyx that, from your photos at least, looks like it is an almost exact dupe for this. Texture, opacity, and everything. And it was like 6 bucks. I will have to look up the shade name later tonight…
