Tom Ford Beauty Violet Fatale is a moderately cool-toned, medium-dark berry with a pearl finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $57.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Tom Ford Violet Fatale Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep fuchsia with cool undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer, which was slightly buildable, but it never achieved full coverage as the texture was thin and had moderate slip. It didn't feel slippery when worn, though. This shade lasted for five hours on me, left a stain behind, and was moisturizing while worn.
