Tom Ford Beauty Maldives Lip Gelee ($55.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a barely-there sheen. It had very sheer coverage that looked like a tint of color, which was as intended. I was able to discern subtle differences between these shades applied to my lips, but someone with more natural pigmentation is less likely to see the differences (I could see having a cooler and warmer take but four shades in such a sheer formula seems unnecessary). The texture was very thin, lightweight, and emollient but still managed to feel almost clingy. The minuscule shine lasted for a half hour, while the tint lasted for an hour and a half, but once the shine wore away, it felt clingy and almost drying. The color went on unevenly due to the jelly preventing the actual color "core" from distributing color along the edges of my lips (unless I wanted jelly outside of my lips!).
