Tom Ford Beauty Lavender Extreme Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deeper, lavender purple with warm, pink undertones and cooler pink and iridescent violet pearl throughout. It had more of a lightly glossy, metallic finish with a few larger sparkles. It had medium coverage in one layer, and it was buildable to semi-opaque coverage but was never fully opaque. The consistency was lightweight, emollient with noticeable slip, and comfortable to apply and to wear. It didn’t pull into my lip lines as much as expected, but the product caught slightly on minor imperfections of my lips. It wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
P.S. — I’m pretty sure the brand has the wrong description on their website, as the description they have listed is the same as they have for the Lip Sparks (and this doesn’t have the same bullet or texture as the Lip Sparks, and it is labeled “Lip Color” on the box).

The formula is supposed have an "ultra-creamy texture" with "smooth application" that will deliver "pure color." The lipstick tends to have semi-opaque to opaque coverage with a natural to luminous finish with some shades with very fine pearl and others with more metallic shimmer. The consistency is typically creamy, lightweight, and has moderate slip, which makes it comfortable to wear and to apply but is not the most long-lasting lipstick formula. The wear tends to range between four and six hours with some shades performing above and below that range. There's a vanilla scent but no discernible taste.
