Mustique

Tom Ford Beauty Mustique Lip Color Sheer ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. it had medium color payoff that adhered somewhat evenly to my lips; there was slight patchiness on my upper lip and a touch of streaking along the edges of my bottom lip that I couldn’t diffuse. The consistency was lightweight, creamy without being too emollient or thick in feel, and comfortable to wear. It stayed on well for four hours and was lightly hydrating while worn.

Formula Overview

$55.00/0.1 oz. - $550.00 Per Ounce

The Lip Color Sheer formula is supposed to have a "semi-sheer effect" with a "creamy" and "hydrating" formula. They are a sheerer lip color, which may or may not be one's cup of tea; if you are looking for pigment, look elsewhere, but if you're someone who likes sheerer coverage, lightweight, hydrating textures, then it might be a formula for you.

There are several shades in the range that have a more transformative effect, as they contain a lot of shimmer/sparkle or have a more duochrome or iridescent-like finish. There are others, typically deeper, richer hues (reds, berries, etc.) that are more medium coverage. The wear ranged a lot from as short as two hours to as long as five hours but most wore around three hours. The formula is lightly hydrating with a very lightweight feel on the lips. They are vanilla scented but have no discernible taste.

Otranto

Tom Ford Beauty Otranto Lip Color Sheer ($55.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single pass, though it was intended to be sheer (hence the name), so it was a lot more pigmentation than I expected. The consistency was lightweight, creamy enough to glide but adhered well (without feeling clingy) and didn’t slide around while worn. The color went on evenly, and the formula seemed to soften most of my lip lines. It lasted for five hours and was moisturizing over time.

Am I the only one who thinks the name Mustique should have been reevaluated? It’s a little to close to “musty” which is not a lipstick I want to use.

Nope, you’re not alone, Jessica. It’s a very weird and sort of yucky sounding name choice! Mystique would have been far more appealing, I think.

Mustique is an island in the Caribbean. It’s privately owned by by various hoity toities, including the British Royal family and Mick Jagger so the snob factor is pretty high. I don’t think he concerns himself with plebeian things like cleaning or bad smells, so the name makes sense to me.

As much as I know about geography, because I’m a nerd like that, I had never heard of this island before, CeeBee! They say you learn something new everyday, I just learned this, lol. Your explanation of the name makes perfect sense. Including the snob factor to “why”.

Otranto is a gorgeous one! A nice, warmer fuchsia instead of the usual. Looking at the dupes, I saw that I had neglected to add L’Oreal Lacquered Strawberry to “My Vanity”, and that one is definitely close enough, I believe.
What has struck me with the 4 Lip Color Sheers is that these 2 certainly seem to be names he’s already used before for lip products. I distinctly remember loving something else by TF named Otranto.

I’ve learned from years of reading this blog that I consistently love products you rate in the C to C+ range, and I’m delighted that Mustique got a C+ because it’s the one color I was really interested in from this range.
