The Best & Worst of Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Color (2017)

Tom Ford Dressed to Kill Patent Finish Lip Color
Tom Ford Dressed to Kill Patent Finish Lip Color

Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “lip stain with an ultra-glossy finish” that has “intense, vibrant color” and “long-lasting high shine.” Since it debuted, I’ve been a big fan of the formula–if you like glossy, pigmented, and long-wearing color, it’s a strong contender to consider for your glossy lip needs. The formula has a more watery feel that develops in a tacky, gel-like consistency that adheres exceptionally well to the lips with glossiness that lasts around six hours and color that lingers for as long as ten hours. It’s a comfortable formula that is lightweight and hydrating enough that I often forget I’ve had it on all day. The only part I don’t like about it is the applicator.

The brand originally launched eight shades but recently added five more to the range, which have been reviewed. Here’s a recap of how each shade has rated (including the original eight)…
