Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Fatale is a very cool-toned, very dark plum with a pearl finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $54.00 and contains 0.07 oz.
Tom Ford Orchid Fatale Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a dark berry-red with cool undertones and faint fuchsia shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage that went on fairly evenly, but I noticed some of the color pulled into lip lines. I don't think it's as noticeable as some other darker glosses have been, and I didn't notice it at a normal viewing distance. The consistency was thin and water-like going on but thickened and felt more gel-like with moderate tackiness after half a minute. It wore well for eight and a half hours with the glossiness wearing away after five hours. Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Fatale (P, $54.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented (95% similar).
