Tom Ford Beauty Violet Fatale is a very cool-toned, dark fuchsia with a matte finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $54.00 and contains 0.09 oz.
Tom Ford Beauty Violet Fatale Lip Lacquer Liquid Matte ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark magenta with cool, blue undertones and a flat, matte finish. The color payoff was nearly opaque in a single layer (you could see a hint of my lip freckle peeking through). It had a smooth, thin consistency that felt lightweight after it had dried down, but the lipstick had a tendency to cling and made my lips feel very tight and just made it uncomfortable to smile (which stretches the lips). This shade stayed on well for over eight hours but was moderately drying to me.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
Tom Ford Lip Lacquer delivers pure, unadulterated liquid lip color in three decadent formulas—Liquid Matte, Liquid Metal, and Liquid Patent. Drenched in long-wearing, stay-true color, lips delight in the lightweight, comfortable textures infused with smoothing moisturizers. Liquid Matte is rich and creamy upon application. The luxe formula transforms into feather-light, concentrated color in a fade-resistant, full-coverage, velvet matte finish.
