Sneak Peek: Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection Swatches & Photos (Part 2)

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection
Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection

Here are swatches for the second half of the Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.). They will be available as a full release beginning December 26th, but they’re available today only at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, and Saks. (As a heads up, Neiman Marcus‘ tiered gift card event seems to apply to Tom Ford Beauty, so that is a way to “save” a little, and they’re offering a gift box when you purchase three shades.)

Three of the shades I ordered were sold out and are on backorder, so I do not have those (Stavros, Addison, Julian). I would love to get lip swatches up for the shades, but I’m not sure if I’ll have them finished by today – I will try my hardest! Updated: Lip swatches have been added! πŸ™‚ The following is a list of shades that are repromotes (and I confirmed by comparing swatches, except for Slander and Smoke Red, which I don’t have):

  • Cooper = Pure Pink
  • Adriano = True Coral
  • Alejandro = Slander
  • Leonardo = Smoke Red
  • Xavier = Violet Fatale
  • Collin = Indian Rose
  • Cary = Casablanca
  • Didier = Moroccan Rouge

It’s nice to see that there is some balance in undertones, but I wish the darker shades were more opaque… I got my eyes on:
Stavros
Beau
Richard
Collin
Peter
Flynn
Here’s hoping I can get them when they release later!

I love nearly all of them with the exception of Rory and Olivier. Cooper and Francesco especially have me grinning! Now I’ve got to try and find a way to get my family to get me some of these that I missed out of cowardice, knowing I have enough lipsticks as it is! smh! πŸ˜›

The ones that I like seem to be mostly repromotes. I don’t have any TF lipsticks though, and this would be a nice way to try them out without the heftier price tag… Undecided! I feel like LE stuff can put so much pressure on a buyer – for obvious reasons, haha.

Christine, thanks for the mammoth effort to get these up in time to help us. I can imagine the waiting period for them to arrive. The swatches were a great help; I tried to take care and pick something that would suit me but the lipstick promo pics and the kiss print swatches could only help so much. Nothing beats this level of organization and, of course, swatches.

I love Guillermo.
Blake looks interesting and Adriano is gorgeous..

Which are your favourites?

Oooh, I am so excited to see these! I ordered Wes and Leonardo from Tom Ford and can’t wait for them to arrive… now that the swatches are up, I think there are a few more that I might pick up from Nordstrom but I can’t decide which. Love Guillermo and Collin… Ugh, lipstick problems.

This is AWESOME, thank you! I placed a Nordstrom order this morning and after looking these over I just placed a NM order for ones I liked that were sold out. I was originally on the fence about having ordered Cooper because I feel like it’s so similar to at least SOMETHING that I have, but maybe not…it looks a bit cooler than Guerlain Gigi (my first thought) so I may end up keeping it anyways! I can’t even keep track of what I have coming in the mail right now. These Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales are killing me.

These look much better than the first batch, although I still spy some patchy ones. But most of these are gorgeous! Rory would be really pretty over a bright color. Guillermo is gorgeous.

Wow!!! i’m impressed you got these swatches up so fast. i ordered four from tom ford and another four from nordstrom today (thanks to your post saying they had them). i think i did well with my choices except for jack…i’m a little worried about that one. at least i got it at nordstrom and can return if it looks terrible on me. I’m super jealous of your whole set though πŸ™‚

I was disappointed to see that some of the colors I wanted were sold out…until I saw your list of repromotes. Then I had to laugh. I felt like I was purchasing blind because I felt there weren’t very accurate images of the colors. Had I been able to get Richard like I wanted, I would have had two full sizes of Negligee and a mini. I love that color, so that wouldn’t have been entirely terrible. I’m a fortunate fool, I guess.

These are so helpful. Gotta say, the more I look, the more I’m convinced it’s just the buying into the label appeal of this lipstick vs. the actual quality. Can anyone honestly say these are better than the Nars Audacious? No way. Look how streaky some of these are and they lack the pigment of one swipe you get with Nars. I’m regretting my purchases. πŸ™

Thank you SO much for these swatches Christine! I didn’t want to make my order without seeing them on your lips! I ended up grabbing Richard and Guillermo for my mom πŸ™‚ I think they look beautiful yet still wearable for corporate!

So many great 90’s re-live colours, so little budget! Gah!! Darn you Tom Ford, this is the first time I’ve been really interested in actually purchasing something πŸ˜‰ Good show!

Thank you sooo much for doing this Christine! Must’ve have taken you whole day to wipe and apply each color & pix them. But bet it feels like kid in candyland to have that lot of gorgeous lip set πŸ™‚

Ive been stalking IG to see swatches of them boys and I sooooo love Stavros that I had to buy 2, along with a Liam. Stavros is a surprise. It was never a choice before but we instantly fall in love haha. Oh and Im so glad I stick to Liam. Was 50/50 between Liam and Alasdhair. Phewww~

Thought Im done with my cyber shopping and there it was the urge to refresh your page one last time to check I havent missed out any deal and voila! there u are with the swatches :)))) And am so glad I did coz Blake and Guillermo are just that stunning that I have to make another round of order but this time with Saks though coz they have my Henry. Dear Henry has been on my mind but Neiman doesnt have him on their site so Im not eligible for the gift card promo.. bummer!

Ahhh now I just have to wait for my boys (& girls! hauling those audacious NARS girls too). It’ll be a long wait though coz I use freight forwarding service. Huhu till then be safe my boys & girls

Woo! It makes my heart glad to see that big block of lipsticks standing together πŸ™‚ There are some really gorgeous colours and finishes here (especially Liam!). Someday, I will own a TF lipstick. Probably Pussycat. But the brand is definitely on my list, along with a Rouge G! πŸ˜‰

I really like the brighter shades, but I have so many bright lipsticks already that I should probably give it a rest . . . haha! Anyway, I’m really into Matthew, Adriano, Rory, Alejandro (reminds me of the Lady Gaga song) and Luciano!

I think I may go broke purchasing these lipsticks . . .

You swatches helped me decide to three. Bought them at Neimans because of the box.
I am glad I waited for your swatches. I buy slow. I no longer buy in a rush. I wait for your swatches.
If it is gone by the time i decide, then too bad. These lipsticks are not cheap even for a mini.
So I am going to decide carefully. I would had waited till December at the counter if you did not swatch them. Tom Ford puts it up several times and re stocks unlike Mac on his limited items and he releases them in succession…so the opportunity is better.

BTW, I have two of Smoked Red. It is gorgeous. I bought them two years ago in San Francisco at the Cosmetic store that sells discontinued EstΓ©e Lauder brands. The store is now closed but there are many of these stores at those outlet malls. Call them ahead to check if they have Tom Ford.
I refrigerate my lipsticks.

I’m really surprised by how few of these actually interest me. Really just Richard and Cary – James and Liam are also pretty, but seem pretty dupable.
It’s funny how one brand can just “get” you with the colors they release, while another doesn’t. I remember when the NARS Audacious Lipsticks came out it was like they looked right into my heart and found every lip color I had ever desired.

I tend to like muted colours, so I’m eyeing Cary and Guillermo, but I’m looking forward to the full-face swatches to see you rocking the bright ones! Great swatches as always Christine!

Wow, just.. WOW! no matter how mesmerising this whole lot of lipstick is, I’m even more impressed with you Christine! You’re crazy~~~~ in the best and most possible way. Can’t believe you’ve done all that in one day! Bless your soul and your tireless dedication. You should win everything at life. All-time honourary blogger prize here please! Hope your lips have a good rest! Thank you so much for sharing. This is the best swatch of the year πŸ˜€

Omg… such an amazing collection of colours. Cooper, Jack, Aljendaro, Collin are a few of the shades that I loved. Amazing!!
Just wait… I was wondering Christine, did you take pictures of all these lippies in a single day? Your lips must have been parched by the end! Your efforts can never be matched! Love and respect!

Tempted…but I know I’ll be disappointed if I got it. Tried a few of the permanent ones at store and wasn’t impressed, plus I got plenty of lipsticks that I’m happy with. But more importantly, you should do a post on how you take care of your skin etc–bc all this swatching must kinda hurt after a while!

The Collin & Cary are the neutrals I hope I’ve been searching FOREVER for-the Orchids are awesome! Reds pretty nice too- tho personally I’m maxed out on the color. I’ve got a boatload to try out- with more due in from Bloomies & Nordies. I’m loving the size & price. I never, ever finish a lippie tube so these smaller ones are pure genius.
The repromote info was out there on the web well ahead of release time. Not sure why more US bloggers didn’t pick up on it- but…loving your dedication to us devotees Christine! Your pics are FAB as usual. πŸ™‚

I’m waiting for my Wes, Julian and Giacomo to arrive today. Based on your swatches, I fear that Wes will be terrible. Doesn’t look opaque at all. Giacomo looks LOVELY! And Julian will be a surprise!

I do like a few of them, mostly the metallic ones. But I just can’t worry about buying them until they are fully released. Are you going to do full face shots at some point? Or are you too busy πŸ™‚

Kinda disappointed that some of those purple shades look so nice and dusky in the tube, and then apply sheer and warmer toned. I was really excited to see some of these, but looks like my wallet won’t be taking as big a hit as expected.

Holy candy yum yum.. But wow, might fine on your lips! They seem to coat and hug just exquisitely! πŸ˜€ Yet I must indulge in your words as I do sadly agree now that no color would have likely worked on me. I’m like a Liam/Wes naturally.. I’m Not kidding. Thick balm can sometimes elevate it to more of a muted Didier.. So.. A. I’m So happy you received these! πŸ˜€ You were so anxious! Yay!!!! πŸ˜€ B. You bugger, you rock them all! C. I bet you’re soooo stoked to have them all as they wear well on you and the colors are truly magnificent, even the candy yum yums.. Damn, Girl! πŸ™‚

Question: are these permanent or for a limited time only?

Also, I have a small suggestion for the site: is there a way to add a “back to top” tab on the bottom of pages? Many blogs have this as an easy way to get back to a top of a post without having scroll up.

*headdesk* I ordered 6 shades yesterday, and EVERY one of them is one I already own in the full size. Out of 50 lipsticks, I chose ones I already own.

Thank you for the swatches. Your lips are real troopers!

Christine, you are phenomenal. The time, effort and commitment you made to get these postings up are mind boggling. I’m surprised you still have lips. I’m not buying anything this time around, but Guillermo is tempting. For now I’ll keep playing with my full sized TF lippies Black Orchid and Coco Rouge. Thank you again for all your hard work.

Thank you SO MUCH for this!!! Seriously, I haven’t been able to find swatches anywhere. I ordered Alexander blind and wasn’t 100% happy with the shade. I just ordered Justin the other day though so hopefully I will be happier with that one. Can you believe how teeny they are? lol. Cute for traveling tho!

Oh, man. I’m so conflicted. Is Xavier really just a repromo of Violet Fatale? On the one hand, I love how it looks here. But on the other, I’m not liking the Violet Fatale swatches I see online. To buy or not to buy…

That said, can anybody help me out? Which among the fuchsia/orchid colors, in your opinion, will fit someone with medium skin (NC40-42) best? I hate ordering blindly, but these are not avail where I am, so I have no choice but to import from the US without trying them out first. πŸ™

Thanks, Christine! That helps — in the sense that I now can’t choose between Xavier and Francesco. Heh. Xavier was the clear winner, but now I know for sure it’s Violet Fatale, I’m not convinced anymore. Worse comes to worst, I’ll just flip a coin!

So wait, for 32$ you can buy half of the mini collection? How many colors are in half of the collection? I think it’s time for my chai tea lol. It’s very pretty, I want to head over to nordstoms now.

Please help me with the color.
I really like the velvet purple color that Sabrina Ioffreda used in the ad campaigns. I thought it’s the Pablo and bought it yesterday at neiman. However, when I saw your swatches, I think it’s more like Liam.
Will you put up a detial review or suggestion for warm / cold skin tone later?
Thanks

AMAZING! I love Preston and Pablo, they are so beautiful! Again, thank you, thank you so much for all of these swatches, it really helped me lot! What are your favorites Christine?

Christine, wow, thanks for all the swatches!! Do you think Wes is a close dupe for bruised plum? I think I finally found my perfect vampy color but I want to get a smaller lipstick since I know I won’t wear it too often. Thanks!!
