Tom Ford Purple Noon Ultra-Rich Lip Color

Tom Ford Otranto Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with cool undertones and fine, light gold and rose shimmer. It had mostly opaque coverage with a lightweight texture that wasn’t as emollient as other shades in the range. It lasted for longer–four hours–and seemed to stay in place better. MAC Where No Man Has Gone Before (LE, $19.50) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Clinique Black Honey (PiP, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Drake (P, $36.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Chanel Noir Moderne (128) (P, $37.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). Guerlain Rose Bengale (DC, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Velvet Orchid (LE, $54.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC A Wink of Pink (LE, $19.50) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Dior Fashion Night (881) (P, $35.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). NARS Shrinagar (P, $26.00) is warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Lychee (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). YSL Rose Blazer (89) (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Chanel Erik (456) (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Scandola Moisturecore Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-beige with warm undertones and gold shimmer. It had sheer coverage, which seemed to lighten and add warmth to my lips without adding a lot of noticeable peach color. It applied somewhat evenly, but the lighter color emphasized all the lip lines as the product tended to settle into the lines. The color wore for two hours on me. Tom Ford Beauty Revolve Around Me (LE, $52.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Pressed and Ready (LE, $19.50) is lighter (90% similar).

Tom Ford Purple Noon Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark berry plum with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy shine. It had semi-opaque coverage with a lightweight, moderately slippery texture that glided on easily but the thinner consistency made sure it didn’t slide around too readily. The color stayed on for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Ingrid (LE, $36.00) is darker (95% similar). Hourglass Liberator (P, $32.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar).

Wow, you’re looking very pretty here, Christine! I love this look you’ve done. I think the NARS blush is looking pretty fine on you! The TF lipsticks look gorgeous, I’m liking Otranto and Purple Moon. Luckily I already have Bite Beauty’s Aubergine.

Otrando and Purple Moon are pretty, but dupe-able. IDK, I just can’t justify $55 for lippie unless it was a unique color and rated A. BTW, I love your teal eyeliner, goes well with the teal earrings!

Otranto and Purple Moon are so very much my style! I likely have far too many dupes and near dupes for Purple Moon, I think. NOT for Otranto, though! That shade is so mauvelous! And I am loving that at least this one stays on for 4 hours, as opposed to the other Moisture Core’s. ?
Although, if I really wanted to be my usual skinflint self; I could probably just throw on some Maybelline Yummy Plummy and top it with a pink & golden sparkle gloss, huh?!??

So disappointed with Scandola. The color is so pretty, but for that price the performance is unacceptable. Thanks for the review – I can save myself $55!

The bullet of Purple Moon is so pretty, I wish it was as dark on as it looks in the tube, and the sparkle was more evident!

These are all beauties! I have Purple noon already. So gorgeous! I need Otrando. I wanted one of the MC nudes. But, not sure on that now. The short wear on the moisture core stinks. But, I can live with it because you can throw them on in a dash. The price is absurd though. It’s, just a choice one has to make. I do feel they are priced for the packaging. But, I’m hooked. My sad wallet.

I’ve only had the chance to wear it once. But, I played with it and Revolve Around me a little. With Revolve Around Me,and I’n hoping the other shades ,you can build the color better by applying a layer, let set, then add another layer or use a liner. I think they have some versatility to them with that. The wear is not super long. But, I don’t mind it if it doesn’t dry my lips and it’s easy to get on because of the sheer aspect. I love the shade of Purple Noon. I feel like by changing liners under it , it’s going to be a beautiful shade. I wound up ordering Otrando after I got a text from NM telling me that they got Bicoastal in at the counter. Tom Ford breaks me every time! 🙂

You look so pretty in all these Christine! Girl you’re a bad influence on my wallet. I have Purple Moon but none of the Moisturecore ones- yet. Bottom line, as crazy as his line is priced I never have issues with my lips after wearing his lippies.

Love these lipsticks on you Christine – especially the Purple Moon. But I think they would turn pink on me. Lots of lipsticks do if they have that undertone. Still, the ratings could have been better for the price you pay for TF.

The lip colors are amazing. Hey Christine,could you pls tell which lens you use when doing product photography? I like the first photograph the most.

Otranto is very beautiful. An easy to wear anywhere colour, isn’t it.
I’m not going to buy it, I find TF far to costly to be honest. I might try the Guerlaine dupe instead.

Didn’t pick up anything from this collection in my three previous Rouge orders as I’d not had time to see your thoughts on a few items. You look beautiful in all of these and I am going to add a couple to my next order like Otranto. That white packaging sadly gets me every time 🙂 and as always thank you for best reviews and swatches!
