Tom Ford Malik Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium lavender with hints of warmer pink and gold frost. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly but the natural lip color will impact how this looks on an individual. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy, and thick enough that I didn't feel the texture of the shimmery bits. The color lasted for four hours and was very lightly hydrating. This was one of the more unique shades in the launch. Tom Ford Beauty Julian (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Strawberry Mousse (LE, $17.50) is more shimmery, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Clueless (DC, $22.00) is more shimmery, cooler (80% similar). NYX Castle (P, $4.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Fenty Beauty Supanova (LE, $19.00) is cooler (80% similar). Surratt Beauty Cultive (P, $36.00) is lighter, less pigmented, warmer (80% similar).
