Rougir

Tom Ford Beauty Rougir Lumiere Lip ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a translucent pink that looked like a barely-tint of pink that gave my lips a soft sheen. I find this type of product harder to review, as they look similar across the shades and, to some degree, depend on one’s natural lip color, but it doesn’t seem like the type of product where the shade itself matters much. The texture was lightweight, balm-like but not too slippery, and comfortable to wear, but it the comfort and hydration lasted less than two hours and never felt like it nourished over the long term–like it only felt hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$55.00/0.10 oz. - $550.00 Per Ounce

The formula is described as "translucent" and is a "lip balm [that] reacts to the wearer's pH" so that it has a "personalized wash of color." In my experience, a lot of products that are supposed to react to the pH all end up pretty similar when applied and are very subtle in difference, if at all, when applied to my lips. They live up to the translucent part of the spiel, but they have really short wear time--an hour or two before it feels gone--and not that much hydration. I actually really love Tom Ford's Lip Balm (in a squeeze tube), but these just fell short for me. They had a very subtle vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Aurora

Tom Ford Beauty Aurora Lumiere Lip ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, translucent base that seemed to have a subtle, lavender tint. On my lips, the tint translated to a deepening of my natural lip color and made it appear more mauve/cooler compared to normal. The consistency was lightweight, balmy, and emollient with moderate slip, so it was comfortable to apply and to wear. The product only seemed to stay on my lips for an hour and a half to two hours, and I didn’t feel sustained hydration over time.

Dark Devotion

Pat McGrath Dark Devotion Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had a lightweight, thinner consistency that was smooth and lightly emollient but not slippery on my lips. It had sheer coverage, which didn’t apply as evenly as I would have liked it to have, as it made areas of my lips look deeper than others. This shade lasted well for four hours, had a bit of a stain left behind, and was moisturizing to wear.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.12 oz. - $316.67 Per Ounce

The new Sheer Colour finish on the Lip Fetish Lip Balm formula is designed to have a "tease of color" with a "lightweight veil of hydration." The balm has a smooth consistency that glided across my lips without tugging but did not feel overly slippery or wet like some balm-like formulations can. I felt like this made it easier to apply them evenly and had them wear decently--anywhere from two to four hours--and I found that a couple of them stained my lips lightly (most notably, Passion Flower looked significantly pinker on my lips, and it also stained my hand pink when I tried swatching it again to verify!). I found the formula to be moderately moisturizing with coverage that ranged from sheer to medium with the deeper shades having more noticeable color and coverage. I didn't detect any scent or taste to these.

Passion Flower

Pat McGrath Passion Flower Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It appeared like a lighter, peachy-coral in the tube, but it was significantly pinker swatched as well as on, and it left a strong, pink stain behind (on my arm as well as my lips). It had semi-sheer pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. It had a lightweight consistency that was lightly creamy but not thin or too slippery on my lips, though it wasn’t as smoothing as other shades in the range. The color stayed on well for four hours and was hydrating while I wore it.

Blow Up

Pat McGrath Blow Up Lip Fetish Sheer Colour Lip Balm ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, peachy coral with warm undertones and a soft, natural sheen. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage with a noticeable warmth and tint added to my lips. The color applied evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and lightly creamy without being slippery, but it also didn’t feel too thin. It felt smoother without the wetness often associated with more balm-like products. It wore well for three hours and was moisturizing to wear over time.

Orgasm

NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm ($28.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium pink with soft, warm gold pearl. It’s supposed to be a “sheer wash” of color with a “radiant finish” paired with hydrating ingredients (like monoi oil). The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and had a moderate amount of slip–in short, it felt like an emollient lip balm that slid around on my lips while worn (but was comfortable to wear).

The base color was sheer as described, but it yielded a noticeable sheen, light shimmer, and a barely-there pink tint. For someone who has naturally pinker or redder lips, I wouldn’t expect much effect or impact, though. The formula was lightly hydrating, but I found I preferred a lot of other lip balms over this for actual hydration. The shine and most of the shimmer seemed to disappear within a couple of hours. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.
