Tom Ford Scarlet Rouge Lip ColorTom Ford Scarlet Rouge Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium red with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The color payoff was nearly opaque in a single stroke, but my lip freckle peeked through. The consistency was lightweight, creamy without being too slippery or thick, and easy to control for more precise application without a lip brush. It stayed on well for five and a half hours, left a slight stain behind, and was moisturizing while worn.
