“…lip shaper…”

*puppy head tilt*

Do we not call it a lipliner anymore? Is that not happening? These look really pretty (and remind me of a high end version of NYX’s newish Ombre Lip Duos), but c’mon… call a spade a spade.

(Plus “lip shaper” makes me think of plastic surgery, not makeup.)

LOL Yeah, sometimes we just need to move past the silly nomenclature and focus on the product–a lipliner on one end and a lipstick on the other. At the end of the day, it is the quality of the product that counts and not its name. With the constant clamor for something new, I think marketers try to come up with a name that leads the consumer to think that the product is something new and different. All that aside, I have read some very good things about these duos and am looking forward to trying them when I visit the Tom Ford counter next week.

You know I just can’t get past the high price. We are definitely paying JUST for the name but a lip contour pencil..eh you can name anything fancy but it’s still just a lip pencil and lipstick duo.

Nice, but…eh, I’ll just stick with my usual LIP LINER and LIPSTICK. Same effect for much less $’s. Nyx has the same thing, too. And cheaper.

I’d like to know whether these will go rancid within a few days or months, like most regular Tom Ford lipsticks. It would be great if they’re a different formula (since the regular formula is plainly defective).

Yours have gone rancid, wow?! I’ve never had that problem, and the Lipsticks are kind of a star product in the Ford line up. Of all the pricey lipsticks out there, it’s the one I’d recommend as a splurge to people.

I’ve never had a lipstick go rancid from Tom Ford and I have had a few for a couple of years. I’ve seen the comment elsewhere but only once or twice. So either there was a bad batch or its certain color formulations that this happened with. Seems like the browns mostly I think. I wear more pink/plum shades and they all still smell of vanilla.

$53?! I know myself well enough to swear on a stack that if I was Melinda Gates I would never pay that for a lipstick! That is highway robbery, IMO.

Will I try them on? You bet! There would never be enough enticement for me at that price point to buy one.

Ha! I was going to wait until tomorrow, but I opened mine yesterday and they are pretty spectacular. The liner end is fairly thick, which is going to take some getting used to. The packaging overall is like the lip lacquers in terms of size. The pencils are soft and creamy, so they apply really well. The lipsticks are fabulous. They’re super creamy, but wear really well. I had one on all day yesterday and it wore well through most of dinner (I had pizza, so nothing survives that). They feel very hydrating on the lips as well. I’ve worn two of the colors; one of which I thought would be too brown for me, but I really like them. Will test out the other two over the next few days.

I have four colors (I apparently double ordered one) but the pictures above are duplicates between 2 shades – so it’s not totally accurate for colors. I bought Dream Obscene (that’s the one I duped), Show it Off (nice nude pink/brown – not 90’s brown though!), I’ll Teach You (a nice raspberry shade I wore yesterday) and Make Me (plum). We’ll see if Make Me ends up too dark on my fair complexion; but Dream Obscene is probably going to be my favorite color overall. They’re pricey, but worth checking out. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how much I’m loving the new lip releases lately and I like that we’re moving away from the urber matte lip.

Thanks for the capsule review. 🙂 I have heard that the wider “shaper” lets you do ombre effects easier and that it can actually be used alone as a matte lip color. As you said, it will take a bit of getting used to, but I guess the thickness contributes to the versatility. I’m looking forward to checking these out next week.

It’s actually the packaging that is thick more than the liner, but I didn’t truly compare side-by-side. I’ll check I out and report back. It just feels slightly odd in the hand compared to a typical lip liner. They’re definitely pigmented and creamy enough to wear solo. If you try them, wear it for awhile. The first color I chose was brighter than I expected, but the longer I wore it the more it melded to my lips. It’s hard to explain, but it just wears beautifully.

I wasn’t going to get these, but now you have me curious, and if there’s a more unique color (ie Velvet Orchid), I might be toast!

Well, in Ford dollars for both items it’s actually pretty good value. I like the look of the beige and the peach, and I feel my wallet getting lighter. I haven’t really spent much for fall so it’s a small indulgence.

I wonder how much these will be here. I just don’t think I’ll get any of them, unless the colour’s unique and amazing. The few TF products I have are not worth the cost, for me. I wonder if it’s because so many seem to really love TF and I expect by far too much. Could be it.

My obsession with TFB cooled this summer, with his summer palettes. I was underwhelmed by them!! (the pink glow palette was too much to live up to. That being said, I may have to try one of these, dang it, because the design and function are innovative IMO. I see that TFB is coming out with 2 larger palettes for holiday, so it will definitely be difficult to resist one of those!! My current obsession is the BB “City collection” anniversary palette in “Paris” . It is so elegant, you must check that one out!

Based on this mini view, I don’t see it happening. I have not purchased a single TF cosmetic product this year. Shocking, but I’m proud of it. I have always had this mixed feeling love/hate thing with the label.

Call me a sucker but I’m about 157% sure I will not be able to resist getting a couple of these. Tom Ford’s prices are stupid high, yes, but I’ve never been disappointed with a TF product (plus I looooooove that man).

I’ve got way too many lip pencils and red lipsticks for this to be worth the money, but I do wish more brands did this because it is certainly more convenient to carry around for touch ups.
