Tom Ford Beauty Empire is a moderately warm-toned, dark coral with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $57.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Tom Ford Beauty Empire Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single, which applied fairly evenly to my lips without tugging on them during application.
The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy without being too thin or too dense, but it didn't sit as well on my lips as other shades in the formula have. I noticed a smidgen of separation along my lip lines in the close-up photos, though it didn't seem apparent in person. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

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.
