Tom Ford David, Demsey, Jake, Hiro, Eric Lips & Boys Lip Colors

Tom Ford David Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy gold with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It was more semi-sheer to semi-opaque with a lot of shimmer, though I didn’t feel the shimmer in the texture, as there was enough slip that it glided on unnoticeably. It could have applied more evenly. It was neither drying nor hydrating during the three and a half hours it lasted. I think this shade works better layered over lipstick or liner or paired with gloss.

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.

Christine, i own some of the Tom Ford Lips&Boys and they have been fine (i think, i have so much makeup i don’t know where they are lol) but a lot of others (on MUA) feel these lipsticks go rancid much faster than almost any other brand. Is that your experience?

Happy Thanksgiving, Christine! Thank you for all you do for the beauty community. I think you are one of the hardest working bloggers out there. And even though I don’t always agree with your grades, (I love dior eyeshadows, dangit, hahaha), I still appreciate your systematic and consistent method of reviewing products.
As for these lipsticks, Hiro and Eric may be coming to live with me. They are so beautiful and interesting to me. Although I swore I would never buy Tom Ford lipstick ever again after the 3 I bought in January have gone bad and smell like spoiled crayons. Basically $150 down the drain.
