Tom Ford Twist of Fate & Negligee Lip Colors
Tom Ford Twist of Fate & Negligee Lip Colors

Tom Ford Negligee Lip Color ($50.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had rich, opaque color coverage that glided on evenly and smoothly without tugging on the lips. The color lasted for five hours and was nicely hydrating while worn. Guerlain Air Kiss (304) (P, $37.00) is darker, more shimmery. Estee Lauder Intense Nude (P, $30.00) is lighter. Too Faced Pink Chocolate (P, $22.00) is brighter, glossier. Laura Mercier Cozy (P, $24.00) is brighter, more matte. Chanel Ce Soir (P, $34.00) is cooler-toned. Buxom Hooligan (P, $21.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tom Ford Twist of Fate Lip Color ($50.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a brightened, medium orange-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had fully opaque color coverage, and the consistency was lightly creamy to easily apply without dragging but still felt lightweight, comfortable, and smoothed lips. This shade lasted for five and a half hours on me and was hydrating while worn. NARS Juliette (P, $32.00) is lighter. Too Faced Melted Coral (P, $21.00) is much lighter. Bite Beauty Cin Cin (P, $24.00) is slightly more orange. Givenchy Croisiere Coral (310) (LE, $36.00) is a touch lighter. NARS Lodhi (P, $25.00) is brighter, lighter. MAC Style Surge (P, $22.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Both shades are part of the limited edition fall color collection. So far, only Saks shows them online, available for pre-order with a ship date of 9/26.

Twist of Fate is awesome! I really like it. I am really looking forward to eye quad in this collection too. Is SAKS’ pre-order available only for members or something? I can’t find out how to order… or is it already finished?

I love negligee on you.. especially with the bronzey makeup! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it would make for a great nude for my kind of skin tones!

Although these colors are very nice, they just don’t “do” anything for me. However, the look as a whole is stunning!

I can’t wait. I’m first on the list at the store to call when it arrives.

By the way in the description it’s listed as the Negligee lipstick twice. Thanks for the review.

Thank you, Wendy! It feels like a very summery collection to me – very bronzy, warm, glowy.

Maestro just photographs soooo well.

Beautiful! I pre-ordered theseโ€ฆ.we shall see if I actually get them! These and the palette will be my first Tom Ford makeup purchases ever. So glad to see a good reviewโ€ฆgiven the price point! I never thought I’d actually buy anything from the brand – for that reason. Rules are meant to be broken?

Yes, and (honestly) one of the blush/highlighter. But it was over the phone to someone at Neimans so I’m a little nervous about it. I never buy the brand so don’t have a “regular” salesperson. We shall seeโ€ฆyour reviews are making me glad I made the callโ€ฆbut nervous about whether I’ll actually get the product (now that I’m liking them). They promised me early August possiblyโ€ฆbut no date promised.

These are gorgeous!! Negligee in particular is stunning. $50 hurts a bit though. I’d have to wear it a LOT to justify that and I am also looking at all the gorgeous NARS lipsticks. Christine how does the quality compare between the new Nars and these?

The texture is a bit different! Tom Ford’s formula is thinner, less creamy in a way – not stiff or dry, just not as creamy – and has little slip, so it “clings” but doesn’t feel clingy or dry. The formula is moisturizing for me, and the NARS Audacious formula isn’t (most are not drying… just not hydrating either). If it helps, Tom Ford’s formula is not my very favorite – Guerlain Rouge G is. I find it combines the right amount of creaminess, consistency, weight, slip, wear, and color that just nails it. Tom Ford is probably in my top 10… (I usually hesitate on TF’s formula, just because the range is so basic.)

They are both so pretty! I just pre-ordered Negligee. Hopefully, it’s perfect for fall! Do you know when preorder is available for the new Quad, or blush duo’s? I’m stalking the web for dates.

Nope, no idea. Saks lists 9/26 as ship date for the lipsticks, if that is any insight. I swear the quad WAS up for pre-order but is no longer there. I haven’t seen the blush duos yet either (anywhere).

Gorgeous on you, Christine. These are two of those almost non-descript colours that look dupe-able and uninteresting in the tube but has such a sophisticated, classic impact on the lips. Absolutely gorgeous.

Christine, you look absolutely surreal in these photos. The whole look is just so sophisticated and beautiful… can’t wait for reviews of Nude Dip and Stroked!

ooooh Tom Ford lipsticks are my weekness!!! Awesome review as always, just letting you know, in description both of them are stated as “Negligee”.

Both are very pretty, but I am really loving Negligee! Would you say it would be a worthy splurge…particularly as a first high-end item (outside of MAC, if that counts)?

Oh my goodness! Talk about pressure, lol!

Is it a color you could see yourself wearing a lot? A lot of times when I think of “is it worth the splurge,” it of course has to be high quality, and then the color has to be something special – either something I’d wear and love all the time, or that really extra vavoom color that would make me feel like a goddess any time I put it on.

If I was going to have recommend something to try from Tom Ford for the first time (in general), my recommendation would be splurge on one of the blushes, because the texture is phenomenal and a lot harder to come by. The lipstick formula is very nice, but the colors are often more dupable than not.

No pressure at all…lol!

You make some good points. I see the Laura Mercier and Too Faced dupes, which look just as pretty. And, of course, I’d have to try on the lipsticks to see if I even like them on my skin tone as much as I like it on yours! Thanks for the tips!

Yeah, I’d HATE for you to venture out of the MAC price point straight to Tom Ford and not LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEEEE! what you get. I’m definitely a fan of TF’s beauty products, but I’m not the kind of person that will tell you that the quality is so heads and tails above everything else that it’s worth it. There are certain colors/finishes/formulas that he’s done that are my holy grail colors, so totally worth the $ for me, but I know I’m paying for branding, too!

Have you posted a question asking readers which HIGH high-end (beyond MAC/UD price point) cosmetic line they’d suggest for a first-time splurge? If not, consider this a submission…lol. I’d love to hear people’s response. I do recall one asking about specific high-end product suggestions…a lot of people suggested foundation. I’d like to know which brand/line people would suggest and why.

I LOVE negligee but I might be more inclined to get the LM dupe. It looks slightly cooler toned and is more in my price range!

Negligee is so gorgeous! I would totally pre-order but I can’t justify a $50 lipstick to myself at this moment so I’ll wait until I can see it in person and then decide. Also what foundation have you been using Christine because your complexion looks flawless!

Indian Rose is more like a cool-toned version (though not strongly cool-toned), so it’s hard to say. They’re different, but they’re not totally different, you know?

I’ve never checked out anything from Tom Ford before in person. Are any of his products scented or flavored? I’m hoping not…bc these products look so tempting. Negligee looks like a lipstick I’d wear everyday and anything I’d use everyday is worth the cost to me.

Geeze Louise Christine- you look so awesome in Twist of Fate! It brightens up your whole complexion. I’m buying that one PRONTO. Thanks for the fab pics- love that Maestro too!

I love TF lipsticks. They are so hydrating and pigmented that I never need or use any lip liner or primer with them. I will admire these from afar.

Omg you look stunning in these colors, the whole makeup look is beautiful! (especially the last pic)which i noticed was also tom ford for the most part ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you for the reviews- I just preordered Negligee and I can’t wait- I am an nw15, do you think it will be okay with my skin tone? It is just so pretty and fall-y that I couldn’t resist- lol! I have been staking out Nude Dip and I can’t believe I missed out on the pre- order! I know makeup is supposed to be fun, but LE items stress me out! That’s why I kind if gave up on MAC, too stressful- lol!

Oh, don’t mind me; I’ll just be over here weeping over these lipsticks. It’ll be very manly, I’m sure.

(Group shots, girl. A single Tom Ford lipstick is one thing; two of them together is apparently way more than I can handle. All those sharp edges and straight liiiines!)

I told an online friend of mine recently that I didn’t want to cry too much to preserve my manliness. He said that if I had a reason, it was f-WAIT YOU’RE A GIRL. You don’t need to worry about being manly!

Of COURSE we do! I despair at how uncouth and offensive that statement is! I too have my manliness, it’s just… more… feminine and makeup wearing than his (and even that is questionable as the boy wears BB Cream and a tiny bit of eyeliner…)!

Gah! So gorgeous!! I’ve been mulling overmy mext TF lipstick ( I bought Nubile a while back). I was thinking maybe Indian Rose but Negligee has changed my mind!! It is SO beautiful!! Thnx for sharing these Christine!

Hi Christine!

You look absolutely stunning! I’m dying to get Twist of fate but I’m wondering if Nars Juliette would suffice…what is your opinion please? I’ve never bought a TF lipstick, and I’m waiting on Nars Angela so I wouldn’t know the difference in formula. I’m really just loving the color of twist of fate so much…would you say Juliette is really close?

Thanks for your input:)
