Tom Ford Beauty Molten Orchid Lip Lacquer Liquid Metal ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a faint, metallic shimmer finish. It had good color payoff, though it wasn't opaque, that applied evenly across my lips with ease. The texture felt smooth and moved fluidly without losing coverage, though it had moderate tackiness while worn. I felt like it had a good balance of long-wear and comfort with the tackiness, as it did not feel heavy or glue-like to me. On me, this shade stayed on well for six hours and left a faint stain behind. The formula was nicely hydrating during and after wear.
