Flesh

Tom Ford Beauty Flesh Lip Color Matte ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque color coverage that applied smoothly and fluidly across my lips without tugging.

The texture was smooth, creamy, and velvety–a little more powdery compared to the original Lip Color formula–and feels a touch denser as a result. There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable in person until after a few hours of wear (and it lasted around four hours on me).

Formula Overview

$55.00/0.1 oz. - $550.00 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.

Impassioned

Tom Ford Beauty Impasssioned Lip Color Matte ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deepened red with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It was a more muted red overall, which is what made it standout a little more in a sea of red hues.

The lipstick had a smooth, lightweight consistency that was lightly creamy, dense without being firm or stiff, and comfortable to wear. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which stayed on well for five hours and felt hydrating over time.

Scarlet Rouge

Tom Ford Beauty Scarlet Rouge Lip Color Matte ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, medium red with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation was good, though shy of full opacity in one layer, but it was buildable to full coverage with a second layer.

It applied smoothly and evenly across my lips without tugging as it had a lightly creamy consistency that wasn’t too firm but still had some substance to it. The density allowed it to sit well on my lips without emphasizing my lip lines or catching on lip texture. It wore well for five and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.

While that one nude shade Flesh would look hideous on me, the two reds are gloriously rich and stunning! Such beauties both!
But alas, I have dupes. MAC VG I and UD Bad Blood. Oh well, I suppose that’s a good thing.

Hmm…I’m not a Tom Ford shopper but this is a reminder that I can break out my satin-matte lip products. They’re less likely to transfer to my mask than the new glassy finish lip products. Which is unfortunate–I love glossy lipsticks.

Impassionate is beautiful. and so right up my alley. and with so many NARS dupes, it explains why I have a penchant for NARS lipsticks.

the first thing that came to my mind was one of the verses from the Japanese 100 poems [Karuta] “Impassionate Gods have never seen, the red that is the Tatsuta River”

Yes, Impassioned is a gorgeous shade and like others, I have a gazillion dupes. At TF price point I would rather buy something that is more unique.
