Tom Ford Beauty L'Odissea is a moderately warm-toned, light coral with a natural finish. It is a limited edition lip balm that retails for $36.00 and contains 0.07 oz.
Tom Ford L'Odissea Clutch-Size Lip Balm ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy coral with warm undertones and a soft sheen. There was "coverage" with this shade, but it had less noticeable impact on my lips due to my natural coloring; I saw deepening of the color with a warmer tone overall. On those with more natural pigmentation, it may be even less impactful (possibly lightening, brightening, or warming only). The formula felt smooth going on, thin without being clingy, and was comfortable over the hour and a half it lasted. This one did not seem to leave behind any stain and was just slightly hydrating.
It's a new, limited edition formula for summer, which is supposed to have a "jelly-like" feel that is hydrating, tinted (described as "subtle shades to enhance your natural lip color"), and shiny. This is the type of product that I've found some readers love--quick, easy for every day, and comfortable--and others can't see paying this much for something that is sheerer. The formula was thin, slightly shiny, somewhat hydrating, and tinted; some shades had a more noticeable tint than others, but it was very much like a lip stain or tinted balm, where a lot of the natural color came through. They wore down within one to three hours, but some of the deeper shades left behind a subtle stain afterward. I did not find the formula to be all that hydrating (the brand's regular, squeeze-tube Lip Balm is a favorite for me). They had a very subtle vanilla scent and are similar in size to the brand's Lips & Boys Lip Colors.
