Tom Ford Beauty Open Kimono is a moderately warm-toned, light peach with a metallic finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $57.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Tom Ford Beauty Open Kimono Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, peachy brown with warmer undertones and golden shimmer. It had medium coverage, which did not build up to greater coverage. The consistency had a lot of slip, so there was visible streaking along the edges of my lips. Between the slip and the amount of shimmer, it was not a particularly flattering shade on the lips as the shimmer seemed to clump up in places and made my lips appear more textured. This shade stayed on well for three hours but was hydrating.
