Tom Ford Naked Coral (21) Lip Color

Tom Ford Naked Coral (21) Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky-coral with warm undertones and fine gold shimmer. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that glided on the lips without tugging but wasn’t too thick or too slippery, so it didn’t slide around or feel heavy on. The color lasted for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating. L'Oreal Luminous Coral (P, $9.99) is darker (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Fever (DC, $39.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

Tom Ford Forbidden Pink (22) Lip Color ($52.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and fine pearl shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy consistency that had a little more slip than Naked Coral and had a thinner feel to it overall compared to much of the Lip Color range.

You look beautiful. I love the eye look! I’m glad these are permanent. I like both…figures! I have some Tom Ford lipsticks. But, honestly I don’t find myself reaching for them anymore than my less expensive ones. I have to wear a liner with them to get them to wear more than a few hours. They are lovely and the hydration is great. They make the lips look a little plump. So, I like them for a luxurious treat here and there. On another note, if you have to pick 3 or 4 of the Lips and Boys, which would you chose? 🙂

Thank you, Nicole! I like them, too, but like you, it’s usually not THAT formula I reach for above all others. The one that comes to mind is Stavros – of all the 50 I tried, that is one that sticks in my mind, lol!

Thanks! I already have a girl at the counter looking for Starvos for me. She said their store was getting only 4-6 of Starvos! Isn’t that crazy?! Going to sell out quick again.

Naked Coral looks so good on you! I loved it until I looked at the dupes and possible dupes, and saw shades that I already own, LoL! So that one would be moot for me.
As to Forbidden Pink, hmmm, for $52, I would want a better finish on it and for it to not look so mundane and done a million times over. So I fell for one of its dupes! MAC Lip Blossom is how I wish FP looked!

You look gorgeous, Christine. I’m passing on these. I have a few dupes for the more pinkish colour, but this range is kind of blah on me, just falls rather flat. I either need to go lighter or darker or brighter. Pretty on you for certain.

The colours are pretty and the finish looks nice, but I personally fing these a bit too expensive. If I ever was to buy a lipstick at this price, I’d want it to be quite unique. Of course I’ve yet to try anything TF, so maybe they are worth the cost. Some day I might get something TF.
