Tom Ford Lip Shimmer ($49.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new formula released in two, limited edition shades for summer. These are supposed to give a “glimmering effect” or “veiled over [lipstick] to add radiant shimmer,” and the formula is supposed to be hydrating as well. If you’re not into sheer, shimmery color, you’ll want to just skip this post entirely; both shades are on the sheer side–mostly shimmer without a lot of color. I did not find the formula moisturizing; I actually felt like it was somewhat drying, and the high frost/shimmer content was a little uncomfortable to wear. Initially, it feels very slick and emollient–like a glaze–but it dries down and all that glossy goodness disappears and all that is left is shimmer, which has a noticeable texture once the shine is gone. I also tried the gold shade as a highlighter, but it’s somewhat tacky on the skin and doesn’t sit as well on the skin as a true liquid or cream highlighter does.

Tom Ford Solar Gold Lip Shimmer ($49.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, yellow gold shimmer. It has a subtle base color that does seem to add warmth to my natural lip color, but the primary effect is shimmer. It lasted for two hours on me. MAC Playland (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. Dolce and Gabbana Topazio (LE, $32.00) is slightly darker. MAC You’ve Got It (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Ruffian Gold (LE, $16.00) is very similar. Guerlain Altoum (LE, $35.00) has larger sparkle.

Tom Ford Moonlight Lip Shimmer ($49.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a frosted, silvery-white with a high frost finish. This one was more pigmented–it had semi-sheer color coverage–but this felt so drying when worn for longer than an hour, though it managed two and a half hours. MAC Eloquent Air (LE, $16.00) is very similar. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Iced (P, $18.00) is more pigmented, more metallic. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
