Deceiver

Tom Ford Beauty Deceiver Lip Color Matte ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium peach with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied without streakiness but the amount of slip in the lipstick resulted in the color gathering and separating around and in my lip lines. It just did not look that good applied–it was a texture that was crying out for a lip liner or primer underneath. It also had a lot more slip than I would have expected, which led to a shorter wear time of three and a half hours, though it was hydrating.

Formula Overview

$54.00/0.1 oz. - $540.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "richly pigmented" and have a "luxurious, velvet matte finish." The majority of the shades are semi-opaque to fully opaque with lightweight, velvety textures--creamy enough to glide on nicely but not enough slip to feel slippery or slide around on the lips when worn. The wear time varied from shade to shade with richer shades lasting over six hours. The formula was comfortable to wear and often lightly hydrating. There's a vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Universal Appeal

Tom Ford Beauty Universal Appeal Lip Color Matte ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium mauve with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer. The lipstick was lightly creamy with enough slip not to tug on the lips when applied but not enough that it felt slippery and moved around a lot during wear. It stayed on well for five hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

Wicked Ways

Tom Ford Beauty Wicked Ways Lip Color Matte ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, deep plummy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips without dragging. The texture was lightweight, velvety, and creamy enough to be comfortable to wear but never felt slippery while worn. It lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Right off the bat Universal Appeal reminds me of Velvet Teddy and Wicked Ways reminds me of Retro. Beautiful colors but highly dupable.

Loving Wicked Ways, but seeing that it’s sister company, MAC, has some decent dupes makes me less inclined to buy it. Time to try on Verve again.

I love the looks of these new TF not so matte matte shades. They are 70 dollars here though. I may pick up one of the newer shades.. Fetishist is my choice so far
