Divine Rose

Pat McGrath Divine Rose LUST Lip Gloss ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warmer undertones and fine gold pearl. It had good color coverage, though not quite opaque, and had more of a cream base that was slightly milky overall. There was a touch of color that sank into my lip lines, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It had a smooth, plush consistency that was comfortable to wear and non-sticky. This shade wore well for four hours and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$28.00/0.15 oz. - $186.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "multidimensional shine" with a "non-sticky texture" that "nourishes" with "exceptional adherence." The opacity ranges from "opaque to transparent." The color coverage really does vary quite a bit, but most of the shades I've tried are sheer to medium in coverage--the brand could be clearer on which shades are opaque. The consistency has a smooth, lightweight texture that wasn't tacky and was comfortable to wear. For the most part, they didn't seem to sink into my lip lines, which can be a pitfall of gloss. I didn't find the wear time to be better than average--three to four hours--but the formula was moderately hydrating. There was a subtle vanilla scent but no discernible taste when worn.

Rouge Metal

Tom Ford Beauty Rouge Metal Lip Lacquer Liquid Metal ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and flecks of gold and copper sparkle and finer shimmer. The pigmentation was nearly opaque and applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without streaking. It had a lightweight, smooth, and comfortable consistency that was easy to wear, but it was somewhat tacky, which may be a deal-breaker for some. This shade stayed on well for six hours and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$54.00/0.09 oz. - $600.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "liquid-gel" that optically "plumps" the lips due to the "mirror-like" finish. It is supposed to be "long-wearing" with "stay-true color" that is hydrating. They are fairly pigmented with most shades being opaque in one layer. The texture was smooth, light-medium in thickness but felt lightweight, and had moderate tackiness, though I'd say less tackiness than most other formulas I've tried that are similar (other opaque, metallic glosses). The wear ranged from five to six hours, and my lips felt hydrating during and after wear. They had a soft, sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Blood 2

Pat McGrath Blood 2 LUST Lip Gloss ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark red with cool undertones and a shiny, cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly with minimal sinking into my lip lines–the shiny finish distracted from what little settling there was as it wasn’t noticeable in person. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and thick enough to feel plush but not so thick that it was heavy. It lasted for four hours on me and was moisturizing.

Red Corset

Tom Ford Beauty Red Corset Lip Lacquer Liquid Patent ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium-dark, red plum with subtle, warm undertones and fine pink pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. The texture felt thin and more water-like initially, but it thickened to a more gel-like feel within 15 seconds or so. It had light tackiness but was very lightweight and comfortable to wear as the formula was moisturizing. The finish was shiny enough that it made my lips appear plumper and smoother from a normal viewing distance. The shine lasted for over six hours, while the color stayed on well for over eight hours and left a stain behind.

Formula Overview

$54.00/0.09 oz. - $600.00 Per Ounce

It's supposed to be a “lip stain with an ultra-glossy finish” that has “intense, vibrant color” and is "long-wearing." The formula feels lightweight, almost watery, when initially applied but thickens and feels more like a moderately tacky gel after thirty to forty seconds. It has great staying power with the glossiness lasting for six hours and the color itself still going strong eight to ten hours later (after two meals and coffee)–by the end of the day, it has more of a natural sheen to it (like a lip stain) but looked even. It did leave behind a stain as well. I often forgot that I was wearing it, as it was just so comfortable, hydrating, and lightweight. The coverage is nearly opaque but has that slight translucency that you would expect to see in a lip stain. I didn’t experience feathering or bleeding on these two shades. It had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste. The formula reminds me of products like YSL Glossy Stains, Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer but with a slightly thicker consistency.

As far as I can tell, the formula is the same as the Patent Finish Lip Colors but with a different applicator (doe-foot over a flocked, click-pen), which I felt like deposited more product in a single "layer" than the prior applicator but the colors, texture, and performance were nearly the same. The ingredient lists also seemed to be the same when I tried to read through them line by line. The descriptions from the brand also have the same key words and claims.

Molten Orchid

Tom Ford Beauty Molten Orchid Lip Lacquer Liquid Metal ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a faint, metallic shimmer finish. It had good color payoff, though it wasn’t opaque, that applied evenly across my lips with ease. The texture felt smooth and moved fluidly without losing coverage, though it had moderate tackiness while worn. I felt like it had a good balance of long-wear and comfort with the tackiness, as it did not feel heavy or glue-like to me. On me, this shade stayed on well for six hours and left a faint stain behind. The formula was nicely hydrating during and after wear.

Orchid Fatale

Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Fatale Lip Lacquer Liquid Patent ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a rich, deep plum with fine, violet pearl and a glossy, mirror-like finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which applied evenly but settled into my deeper lip lines. The high-shine finish made it so the settling wasn’t as noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The texture felt watery when initially applied, almost cooling, and very thin, but it thickened to a more gel-like consistency within 15 seconds. The lip color adhered to my lips well for eight-hour with shine that really lasted for most of that period. It was hydrating while worn, too. This updated version seemed similar in color and quality, but the doe-foot applicator intensified the pigmentation as it seemed to apply more product in one layer compared to the flocked applicator of the Patent Finish Lip Color.
