Tom Ford Beauty Sweet Tempest is a moderately warm-toned, very dark coral with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $55.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Tom Ford Beauty Sweet Tempest Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, coral-red with warmer undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer. The lipstick was lightly creamy with moderate slip, which made for an easy, glide-on application and a more noticeable shininess in the finish. The coverage could have been better, but the finish of this seemed to smooth out my lip lines a bit. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating over time.
