Tom Ford Paradiso (07) Moisturecore Lip Color Review, Photos, Swatches
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.

This Shade really complements your skin tone Christine!!?
Thank you, Ali!
Which of the two formulas for Paradiso – Moisturecore or Sheer – is better in your opinion? Thanks in advance!
It just depends on what you prize more – the Sheer formula wears longer, the Moisturecore formula is creamier, more hydrating.
I personally love the moisturecore ones better because of how moisturizing they are!
Call this a “bah humbug” moment, but the separate-core lipsticks always seemed so gimmicky to me. Can they really not just blend the two components and get a solid lippie with the same characteristics? Or does something about the core make it unfeasible to blend the two and then mold it? Possible, I suppose. [shrug] But it seriously feels like nothing but marketing. Not that I should be surprised — it’s makeup for goodness sake!
I must be in a mood…
My guess is that it is partially just an aesthetic thing/design aspect of leaving it “unblended” so-to-speak.
Love the plush, pillowy effect this gives to the lips! And it looks truly gorgeous on you!
However….I notice that it has some far higher rated dupes at roughly $20 less in Givenchy Rose Dressing and Chanel Melodieuse. Also looking at Bite Sucre as a possible better option. Of these, would you say that any of these replicate that plushy look, Christine?
Le Rouge will do the best at giving a similar luminosity in the finish!
Thank you, Christine! Rose Dressing will be getting a try-on by me next time I hit Nordstrom’s!
Beautiful!! So summery and cheery! ?
It is totally a summer shade!
That’s an exceptional color on you. I love it! Too bad it’s so expensive!
Thank you, Erin! 🙂
That’s a gorgeous shade!
This is such a beautiful colour 🙂 I don’t have any of the TF Moisturecore lipsticks; perhaps I’ll pick this one up for summer. It does look beautiful on you, Christine!
Thank you, Cathy! 🙂
Looks nice but for FIFTY FIVE SMACKAROOS there should be more that 2.5 grams of product and FFS, Tom, what is with the goshdarn sticker on the box?!?! Does it cost too much to print each shade individually on the cardboard packaging (like all the other high end brands do)? I guess now we know why!
Sorry, I got out of bed on the wrong side this morning and this is making me cranky. 🙁
LOL, I have gotten out of the bed on the wrong side and had many a thing annoy me that doesn’t usually get to me! 😉
