Tom Ford Ansel, Alex, Rocco, Austin, Kingston Lips & Boys Lip Colors

Tom Ford Ansel Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brightened, light-medium peony pink with warm undertones and gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly textured consistency from the amount of shimmer in it. The color went on evenly and smoothly, but the consistency is thinner so I felt like the shimmer emphasized lip lines to a small degree. As a note, I really think this might be Quiver from the Lip Color Shine range, just an opaque, less glossy version (the colors are nearly identical to me). Tom Ford Beauty Quiver (P, $54.00) is lighter, less pigmented, cooler (95% similar). Guerlain Kiss Blossom (LE, $37.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Tom Ford Alex Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and very fine fuchsia pearl. It had almost opaque coverage, but there was some translucency there that allowed the lip color to come through slightly. The texture was smooth and lightly creamy, so application was easy. The color lasted for six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. This was a very dupable shade, in my opinion! Bobbi Brown Raspberry Pink (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Tom Ford Rocco Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brighter, medium rose-shimmered fuchsia pink with cooler undertones and a metallic sheen. It was sligthly thicker in consistency, which made it feel creamier and apply with more opaque coverage for me. The color wore well for five and a half hours with a little bit of shimmer settling into lip lines after three hours of wear. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Marc Jacobs Beauty Pink Straight (320) (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, less glossy (90% similar). Estee Lauder Demure (LE, $25.00) is less glossy (90% similar).

Tom Ford Austin Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and fine pearl shimmer. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy texture. I wish it smoothed out a little more on the lips, as it seemed to emphasize the texture of the lips more than other shades. The color lasted for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Bobbi Brown Pink Kiss (P, $28.00) is lighter (95% similar). Estee Lauder Nude Reveal (110) (P, $32.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Estee Lauder Impulsive (P, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Tom Ford Kingston Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, bold fuchsia pink with fine, cool-toned fuchsia pearl.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lip Colors ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) are “clutch-sized” lipsticks; it uses the same formula as the full-sized Lip Colors (which retail for $52 for 0.10 oz.), but the packaging feels the same, just smaller. Tom Ford’s lipstick formula is supposed to be hydrating, pigmented, and have a more luminous finish (there is also a specifically Matte formula available that is much flatter in finish). This year’s launch of Lips & Boys features 25 new shades that are part of the new “metallic” finish, and then the return of 25 shades from last year. In general, the formula is semi-opaque to opaque with a lightly creamy consistency that doesn’t slide around a lot but doesn’t cling to the lips. I get anywhere from three to six hours of wear out of them, and most shades are lightly hydrating over time. The formula is vanilla-scented with no discernible taste.

Austin looks like something I’d wear. I’m almost tempted to get one. I don’t own any Tom Ford makeup. I bought nude dip, but returned it. It was nice. It just didn’t wow me enough for the price. That’s kinda how I look at all his makeup now. Nice, but similar things are available at cheaper price points.

Out of this set of 5, the one that I was the most interested in, Ansel, has not one, but TWO dupes that have been sitting on my wishlist FOREVER! Too Faced Metallic Peony and even better: MAC Lip Blossom! Time for me to get it, huh? ?

Gah! I really, really love Rocco. Holy heck, that’s beautiful. I have the two Kat von D dupes, but they’re not super-similar. I must stay strong and not buy a $35 lipstick.

All of these shades are great. I feel like I need to visit the idea of Bite #004 if they are stocked up again. I have Cafe, so I don’t need Austin, though I prefer the TF finish.

I love that the new ones are metallic!!! But, seems like he dupes himself constantly with his colors! Like, so many similar shades released at the same time. I don’t get it. They’re very pretty though! So are both sets permanent now or just last year’s set?

With the exception of Austin, which is super pretty but might be too light for me, I want all of these lipsticks!!! They’re truly gorgeous on you Christine!!! The metallic finish is stunning!!!

I like Rocco and Kingston, maybe it’s time to try TF lipsticks, but given the cost, maybe not. We’ll just have to see, I suppose, if I can resist.

I’m going thru your reviews of these Christine and making a list after I see your ratings and how they look on your lips.It is really helpful to see them on a person’s lips who isn’t trying to sell them.The colors on lips on the Tom Ford website are stunning but a lot of them are totally different look from yours.Im sure they are playing up lighting and photography filters to get them all looking perfect.The Drake lipstick looks nothing like it does on you on their website.That said I will still be ordering Drake,Malik,and Rocco. I already ordered Jake and Eddie on the 23rd.I have them listed in yes,maybe?,and no.Lets just say the only no I have so far is Ansel.I was also thinking about getting the gift set of 10 for $350 but I wish it had more bold colors in it.If I was rich I would get the set with all 50 but I cannot afford it especially with the fact that it’s more than $35 a lipstick and I already purchased the Kat Von D studded lipstick vault,the Fresh vault,and plenty of Kat Von D liquid lipsticks during the VIB Rouge sale!Im addicted to lipstick & these 50 lips & boys are calling my name!!!!!!!

The colors are really different on Tom Ford’s website! Some of them are just night and day, unfortunately!

Since there is no value in a TF set, get the shades you want instead of settling for a set!
