Tom Ford Beauty Universal Appeal Lip Color Matte ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium mauve with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer. The lipstick was lightly creamy with enough slip not to tug on the lips when applied but not enough that it felt slippery and moved around a lot during wear. It stayed on well for five hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.
