Orchid Fatale

Tom Ford Beauty Orchid Fatale Lip Lacquer Liquid Patent ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a rich, deep plum with fine, violet pearl and a glossy, mirror-like finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which applied evenly but settled into my deeper lip lines. The high-shine finish made it so the settling wasn’t as noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The texture felt watery when initially applied, almost cooling, and very thin, but it thickened to a more gel-like consistency within 15 seconds. The lip color adhered to my lips well for eight-hour with shine that really lasted for most of that period. It was hydrating while worn, too. This updated version seemed similar in color and quality, but the doe-foot applicator intensified the pigmentation as it seemed to apply more product in one layer compared to the flocked applicator of the Patent Finish Lip Color.

Formula Overview

$54.00/0.09 oz. - $600.00 Per Ounce

It's supposed to be a “lip stain with an ultra-glossy finish” that has “intense, vibrant color” and is "long-wearing." The formula feels lightweight, almost watery, when initially applied but thickens and feels more like a moderately tacky gel after thirty to forty seconds. It has great staying power with the glossiness lasting for six hours and the color itself still going strong eight to ten hours later (after two meals and coffee)–by the end of the day, it has more of a natural sheen to it (like a lip stain) but looked even. It did leave behind a stain as well. I often forgot that I was wearing it, as it was just so comfortable, hydrating, and lightweight. The coverage is nearly opaque but has that slight translucency that you would expect to see in a lip stain. I didn’t experience feathering or bleeding on these two shades. It had a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste. The formula reminds me of products like YSL Glossy Stains, Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer but with a slightly thicker consistency.

As far as I can tell, the formula is the same as the Patent Finish Lip Colors but with a different applicator (doe-foot over a flocked, click-pen), which I felt like deposited more product in a single "layer" than the prior applicator but the colors, texture, and performance were nearly the same. The ingredient lists also seemed to be the same when I tried to read through them line by line. The descriptions from the brand also have the same key words and claims.

Ravageur

Tom Ford Beauty Ravageur Lip Lacquer Liquid Patent ($54.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a rich, coppery red with warm undertones and fine, barely-there gold pearl. It had good color payoff in a single layer, though it was more like a lip stain and gloss hybrid with some translucency (but still quite a bit of color). The product applied evenly on my lips and with the shine of the finish, it looked fantastic and my lips appeared smoother. Up close, though, there was a slight amount of product in my deeper lip lines. The texture was thin and watery initially and felt wet when I put it on, but it developed a thicker, lightly tacky texture that felt more like a gel-based product. It wore well for over eight hours, left a stain behind, and was nicely hydrating.

Much as these appeal, VLGs got me first. So, dupes scored, deviant and Le palace. With A+ ratings, who needs further search? Lesson learned. And, like many readers, don’t see paying the premium for a product that scores less well. Yeah, that’s why we love you.

I have one shade in this line and it is “Red Corset”. I purchased it sort of on a whim as I saw the shade and really loved it. It was an expensive lip for sure but I have to admit that I like the way it wore on me. It is very shiny and I was worried that it would travel up my lip lines but it didn’t. It seemed to set down and lasted really well. It wore off nicely also which is something I am concerned about in red lipsticks. It seemed to leave a slight stain behind.
