FDSA ($55.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and smoothly. The consistency was lightweight, creamy with moderate slip, and easy to spread across the lips. It had the type of texture that glided on without tugging on the lips and felt like it “melted” during application. The lipstick was hydrating over the three hours it lasted.
Tom Ford Moisturecore Lip Color is supposed to have two formulas in one. The center is described as a “liquid core” that “provides luxurious moisture” while the exterior is hydrating, has golden pearl, and yields a “soft veil of lightweight color that lasts for hours.” The formula is lightweight, moderately emollient, and somewhat hydrating. It didn’t have great longevity as wear ranged from two to four hours depending on the shade. They don’t really have a “soft veil” of color, as most of them are fairly pigmented. It is vanilla-scented with no discernible taste. In general, the formula is a little heavier but has noticeably less shine than the also-new Ultra-Rich Lip Colors.
