Here’s a quick peek at the newly launched Tom Ford Lip Color Matte ($50.00 for 0.10 oz.). Six of the eight shades are permanent (First Time and Black Dahlia are limited edition). They’re available online at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks, and Tom Ford. With this type of formula, I expect it’ll take several days to test them all, so I hope you enjoy this sneak peek.

They look nice but I’m not really seeing anything I couldn’t dupe out of my stash right now. I’m interested in seeing your full face of Pussycat (04), though.

I quite agree with you Ginny, there are no colours that I haven’t seen loads of times before & haves dupes for. Pussycat does look lovely, but I know why I like it – it looks like a dupe oh MAC’s Cream in my coffee, one of my fav lipsticks!

Uh oh, Pussycat looks just as gorgeous as I expected!! πŸ˜› I was kind of hoping it would turn out to be greyish purple or something so that I wouldn’t have to add it to my list of ‘muted mauvy pink lipsticks I’m currently mildly obsessed with’… πŸ˜‰

Black Dahlia looks nice too!

Pussycat is beautiful, but FIRST TIME is my cup of tea and it looks amazing.
I’m looking forward to your in-depth review with regard to Pussycat, because I want to be absolutely sure about its performance.
Quite, I’ll purchase First Time.

Sad to say that none of the lipstick screams out at me. With the cost they would have to be absolutely extra fantastic for me to buy. And I really, really want to be the owner of something fantastic and glamorous from Tom Ford, as we do have a TF counter here now, making it so easy to just buy something. When I visited the counter I had one of those anticlimactic feelings.I guess I wanted it to be a bit like when Cinderella sees her ballgown, you know. It should sparkle and take my breath away. It didn’t.
I think I must browse around here to see what can be an absolute must have product.

I always feel like that when I go to a counter or even Sephora! I want to be wowed, to feel like I MUST have this item, and I never get that feeling and leave empty handed. I love the Cinderella analogy!!!

I think if you missed out on black orchid, now is the opportunity to get black dahlia or velvet cherry. Beautiful colors but I will pass because I still have some black orchid left. It’s my favorite color.

Is First Time LE? In the swatch gallery it is indicated as permanent, I am in love with it and Pussycat, just need to know which one I should buy first. If they are both permanent, I have some time. Thanks, Christine!!!!

OMG. killin me here!! Theyre all so gorgeous!!! Pussycat is my fav of this bunch suprisingly!! But the reds are gorgeous too. Oh ty for these swatches!!

Black Dahlia is gorgeous but I’ve heard this matte formula is super dupable whereas the original formulas are something special, somehow justifying the price tag a bit I suppose! πŸ™‚

Oh man… I wish could get 3! first time, pussycat, and pink tease. I’m usually a red or vampy fan but these pinks are perfection! Now to figure out how to be able to spend $150 on lipstick!

Some really gorgeous colors here! I especially love Black Dahlia, Ruby Rush, Plum Lush, Velvet Cherry, and even Pussycat! I’ve never spent this much money for a lipstick, though, and don’t have anywhere near me to see these in person. I hear Nordstrom has a great return policy. So maybe.

I can’t wait for your review of these, Christine! Pussycat looks like it would make a beautiful MLBB shade on olive and cool skintones πŸ™‚

I have Pink Tease, Pussycat and First Time~
I’ve been wearing Pussycat a lot these days! It’s so pretty!
It did make a huge dent on my wallet but it was worth it πŸ˜€

I’m trying to decide between Black Dahlia, Ruby Rush, and Plum Lush. I want two, but Im trying to see if black dahlia is similar to bruised plum (which I have already). Do you think Black Dahlia is close to Bruised Plum.

Hi Christine! Do you know of any dupes for First Time/anywhere it might still be available? I can’t find it anywhere πŸ™

Dear Christine,
just out of curiosity: why Tom Ford Lip Color Matte line doesn’t have a revive?
I’m an old time reader and I am very curious of your opinion about the formula.
