Tom Ford Louis, Jude, Malik, Daniel, Drake Lips & Boys Lip Colors

Tom Ford Louis Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, cool-toned pink with strong, blue undertones and a white base. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with fine white pearl that gave it a more frosted sheen, but the texture itself wasn’t that emollient, so it looked almost like a “matte frost” in finish. It glided on without tugging on the lips, but there was some visible streaks. This shade lasted for four hours, was lightly drying, and pulled into lip lines to a moderate degree.

Tom Ford Jude Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a creamy, glide-on texture that had some slip and actually yielded more of a shine when applied. On me, the color wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Be Fabulous (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Tease Me (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Tom Ford Malik Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium lavender with hints of warmer pink and gold frost. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly but the natural lip color will impact how this looks on an individual. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy, and thick enough that I didn’t feel the texture of the shimmery bits. The color lasted for four hours and was very lightly hydrating. This was one of the more unique shades in the launch. Tom Ford Beauty Julian (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tom Ford Daniel Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with warm undertones and multi-colored, ultra-fine shimmer. It was nicely pigmented with nearly opaque coverage, while the texture was creamy and comfortable to wear. It seemed a little thicker and more hydrating compared to other shades. This color wore for five hours on me. MAC One of a Kind (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). Pat McGrath Skin Flixx (P, $40.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Tom Ford Drake Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark raspberry pink with cool undertones and fine, multi-colored pearl shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy texture that applied evenly but is more satin-like in the shine part of it, despite having a fair amount of shimmer! This shade stayed on for five hours and left behind a slight stain. It was lightly hydrating over time. NARS La Paz (LE, $28.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar).

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.

I liked Drake more than I thought I would! I love the coverage and the finish! I think I might get the Too Faced dupe though as I’ve wanted it for a while. It just doesn’t have the cachet of the TF packaging!

I can see why Daniel gets a RX! I have Henry,Starvos,Alejandro, & Richard on pre sale. Daniel is tempting me to add him! So happy these are permanent.

Loving Malik! Such an unusual and surprisingly pretty shade, at that! Not entirely certain that it would look right with my coloring, but perhaps worth a try-on at least? Who knows, I may just love it on!
(Starts hunting stash for even a semi-dupe….)

Yah, S=evil Empire 4. Right after 3, Comcast, the cable provider. We’d be better off putting the S $ into a retirement acct, but that’s not going to happen.

Metallic Jelly is really nice, almost makes me wish some of the other Melteds appealed to me, because I like the formula. But it saves me money, I suppose!

It’s too bad you haven’t reviewed So Vain from the regular sized lipsticks because I am convinced that Daniel and So Vain are the same. Beautiful color and beautiful on you either way.

Nah! I’m the slow one…you’re insanely amazing with all you do…didn’t even notice it tucked in the dupes list. Just checked out the swatch comparison. I have So Vain, but Daniel keeps catching my eye, so I think I need him, too!

Happy early Thanksgiving!!

I’ll have to start a TF Lipstick Haul fund now that these are permanent. Taking donations! 😉 I love Malik and Daniel, and I had several from last year’s selection on my wishlist. I’m sure there will be more to add from the new crop, based on the preview post!

Help me, I’m addicted and I can’t stop.

OMG, this is bringing back memories! The first lipstick I bought was a super frosty pastel pink from DS , probably looked horrid on me, but I didn’t know any better LOL Ever since then, I’ve stayed away from that color. But wow, Daniel and Drake look pretty, and love that gold shimmer in Malik. I’m probably going to cave and pick up one, but not sure which one yet.

Daniel and Louis are so pretty! (Would any name fit that lilac pink color better than Louis? I think not.) I had a dream the other night that I bought the whole Tom Ford lip collection-that would never happen, but it seems like even my subconscious is becoming more and more curious about Tom Ford products.

Lol! No, not really. If only some dreams could be reality! Without the money having to be spent, of course. But that’s another dream.

I second Indya-your eye makeup here is super pretty.

I’m really sorry if this is a silly question (haven’t been able to keep up with the blog since I’ve been so busy!) but these are brand new shades of lips and boys am I correct? Are they being re-released individually for black friday? And where online?

Yes, these are new. There are 25 new ones, 25 repeats. All 50 already launched on TomFord.com. I don’t have much info on who else is getting them and when, but Neiman Marcus emailed that they’d have them on 11/27.

Malik is so interesting. It doesn’t seem to have many dupes, so maybe this will be the one. I am very sure I don’t have anything like it.

These are retro to me, too, esp. this level of frost. The only one appealing to me @ present is Stavros, like everyone else! But the reds are coming! The Reds are coming! I just wish TF would issue a packaged trio, with pick your own option @ $100. We’d all spring for that, and it would fool us into believing we had a discount! Ah, the powers of rationalization.

I’m just worried on Black Friday that I’m going to try to order these and not be able to get Drake again(it sold out on the Tom Ford website on the 23rd before 10:30 am eastern standard time) and then they won’t restock these for a very long time like how it took them forever to restock the Paradiso lip sheer once it sold out this summer.It took them until October to restock.Even though it is part of the permanent collection now.Do you happen to know the time that these will be available for sale on Tom Ford’s website or Neimanmarcus.com,Christine?

I have no idea! 🙁 Here’s hoping they don’t go out of stock super fast. I know that Neiman Marcus sent me a customer email about it on 11/27. I’m not sure if Saks, Bloomingdale’s, etc. will also have them.

My boyfriend bought me the Drake one after I’d been eyeing it since I heard the release date. Your swatch looks NOTHING like the one on the TF website but it’s still beautiful! I can’t wait till it gets here, and thanks for the swatches!

If you could see my lipstick collection, you wouldn’t be at all surprised to hear that Drake is my favorite. However, I already have UD’s After Dark, and I like Too Faced Mettalic Jelly more than the TF lipstick (probably because it’s more pigmented and glossier). Still… Drake would work well as a more subdued version of the UD and Too Faced products so I am still considering it.

I also love lipsticks when the shimmer is the opposite to the undertone. I am cool tone NW25 do you think Malik would suit me because of the gold shimmer. I love it. Also can you remember which colours have the most shimmer I love shimmer I am in Australia and can not get to a store. Tom Ford is only available in one place in my state.

I think it would suit you, Juliana! I don’t remember offhand which have the most shimmer, but I think you can see them in photos!

I’ve never been too interested in Tom Ford, but I’m gagging over Malik. It’s such a perfect shade for my tastes, that orchid color with the golden flash to it. Sad there isn’t an obvious dupe, but not surprised because of how strongly I reacted to seeing it. If I’d seen a color just like that before, I would already have it.

It’s so strange to me that there aren’t more like, you know? It just feels like it should be near impossible to be that unique any more, lol!

I’ve never been able to afford any Tom Ford, but Daniel is a perfect every day color for me and it’s my husband’s name, so I might have to splurge! <3
