Casablanca

Tom Ford Beauty Casablanca Patent Finish Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep red with subtle warm undertones and fine pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied without streaking, though there was slight color that had pulled into my lip lines, which wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The texture smooth, watery, and easy to spread initially but developed a light tackiness and more of a gel-like feel after a minute or two.

Formula Overview

$54.00/0.07 oz. - $771.43 Per Ounce

Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Color ($52.00 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.”  It’s a click-style product with a flocked, slanted applicator where the liquid color flows from. I’m not particularly fond of the applicator, though it is not rough or hard to use, but the flocking makes it harder to get really precise, clean edges (sometimes I feel like it gives a more jagged edge).

The formula feels lightweight, almost watery, when initially applied but thickens and feels more like a moderately tacky gel after thirty to forty seconds. It has great staying power with the glossiness lasting for six hours and the color itself still going strong eight to ten hours later (after two meals and coffee)–by the end of the day, it has more of a natural sheen to it (like a lip stain) but looked even. It does stain as well. I would forget that I was wearing it, which is a testament to how comfortable and hydrating it is for all-day wear.

The coverage is nearly opaque but has that slight translucency that you would expect to see in a lip stain. I didn’t experience feathering or bleeding on these two shades. It has a strong, vanilla cake scent–not your typical vanilla but something sweeter–and noticeably stronger than other Tom Ford lip products. The formula reminds me of products like YSL Glossy Stains, Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer but with a slightly thicker consistency. The color range is more limited with all the shades being brighter, medium-to-dark in color, and between warm red and cool pink.

Exotica

Tom Ford Beauty Exotica Patent Finish Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark raspberry pink with cool undertones and barely-there pearl. It had good color coverage, but it wasn’t opaque. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and lightly tacky after it “set” from its initial watery feel. It was comfortable to wear, hydrating, and long-wearing with the color still going strong after eight hours of wear.

Dressed to Kill

Tom Ford Beauty Dressed to Kill Patent Finish Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium red with neutral undertones and a glossy, high-shine finish. The pigmentation was semi-opaque in a single layer, and the gloss applied evenly and smoothly across the lips without emphasizing my lip lines. The texture felt more watery at first, but it developed into a more gel-like consistency that had light tackiness. This shade stayed on well for over eight hours on me and was moisturizing while worn.

Nice, but glad I have vlg dupes for all 3. It really puts TF into perspective, when you realize Nars is half the price of these TFs. Never thought of Nars as a bargain brand before!

Oh my goodness, your eye look here! Sooooo soooo pretty!
I like the idea of a lipstick that is both hydrating and long-wearing. May have to look further at this line, even though I very rarely pay much attention to lipsticks over $50.

Exotica and Dressed To Kill with their 8+ hours of wear is highly impressive! Wow! Add to this, that both are delightfully cheery colors and suddenly the .07 amount that seems painfully meager, really isn’t a negative if they’re lasting all day long!

What great photos of the stunningly colorful product making its debut and emerging out of the fluffy white! And the photos of the product on yourself for a reality check. I expect these lippies would benefit from a lip liner and a lip brush for precision?
