Tom Ford Beauty Cardi Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, bluish-purple with flecks of blue, violet, and lighter blue pearl and micro-sparkle. Because it's semi-sheer in coverage, the purplish-blue color ends up looking more purple than blue against my natural lip color (which is slightly pinky). There's an unevenness to how it applies, though, that prevents it from being a good layering shade. It had a very lightweight, emollient consistency that was comfortable to apply and to wear. It lasted for three hours on me and lightly hydrating.
