Tom Ford Lilac Nymph (47) Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, light-medium bubblegum pink with strong, blue undertones and a fine frost. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a more emollient texture that was thinner and less cream-like compared to other shades in the formula. I wish it had applied more evenly, and it also had a tendency to slip into lip lines over time. This shade lasted for four hours on me.
