Tom Ford Beauty Bruised Plum is a slightly cool-toned, dark plum with a pearl finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $57.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Tom Ford Bruised Plum Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a fine, pearl finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips somewhat evenly, and some of the color slipped into my lip lines. It applied better than many other shades with this amount of slip and deepness in color, but it still had plenty of room for improvement. It wore well for five and a half hours, left a slight stain behind, and was hydrating.

To Tom Ford, there is no more dramatic accessory than a perfect lip. It is the focus of the face and it has the power to define a woman's whole look. Each lip color is Tom Ford's modern ideal of an essential makeup shade. Rare and exotic ingredients, including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil, create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.
