Tom Ford Misbehaved (49) Lip Color
Tom Ford Misbehaved (49) Lip Color

Tom Ford Misbehaved (49) Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, orange-coral with warm undertones and a soft shine–a little more than a satin but not glossy. The texture was smooth, creamy, and easy to apply as it glided on without tugging and deposited nearly opaque coverage evenly. On me, this shade stayed on well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. . Bite Beauty Gingersnap (P, $26.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Tom Ford So Vain (50) Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and very fine gold shimmer. It had a nice, creamy texture that was easy to use and comfortable to wear, while it also distributed the color evenly. This shade had mostly opaque color payoff and lasted for four and a half hours on me. It was moderately moisturizing as well.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lip Colors ($35.00 for 0.07 oz.) 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). 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’ve been eyeing So Vain for a while, such a pretty color and love the gold shimmer. Glad it scored well. Will probably pick it up at the next sale

You walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht….
You’re so vain..
I bet you think this lipstick review is about you
Don’t you
Don’t you

So Vain is a color that I would definitely choose for myself. I will need to remember it if I fall in love with the one Tom Ford lipstick I bought that is on its way to me.
It looks great on you Christine.

I have both. I’m not super happy with Misbehaved honestly. It Definely needs a liner for me. Maybe my lips are too pigmented or its not as opaque for that type of coral shade. No TF counter here. So that makes it hard. But, with liner, it’s a nice one. I love So Vain though.

These both look so luscious and richly pigmented! Misbehaved seems to be a wonderful spring/summer shade that isn’t as pale as MAC Reel Sexy, so it would look better on pigmented lips like mine.
We *know*, however, that of course I’d be immediately drawn to So Vain! But having Air Kiss, Touch Of Spice and Pink Chocolate, I need to leave this one alone for awhile so that I’ll use these up first!

I’m liking So Vain, it’s in warm/neutral shade family I can wear even with a cool skin tone. It’s the find of shade I like to wear with cool toned smoky eye to balance it out.

I just got my first Tom Ford lipstick (Derek!) and I looooove the formula, now I want to try a lighter/pinker color and Misbehaved looks so pretty! Maybe it needs to go on the Christmas list. Thanks for the great reviews, once again, Christine!
