Tom Ford Revolve Around Me Ultra-Rich Lip Color
Tom Ford Revolve Around Me Ultra-Rich Lip Color

Tom Ford Revolve Around Me Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium peachy-beige with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly, but it was the least even of the six (it also seemed the least pigmented). Some of the color gathered and emphasized lip lines when applied. I think this one would benefit from a lip liner or filling primer. It wore for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Tom Ford Solar Affair Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, coral-orange with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly shiny finish. This one had a heavier, more cream-like appearance than other shades, which looked more like stains than traditional lipstick. The texture was a little denser and thicker on. It had nearly opaque coverage as well. The color wore for four hours and was hydrating. Estee Lauder Heavenly (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Cali Coral (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Melon (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Tom Ford Temptation Waits Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and fine gold micro-shimmer dusted through it. It had mostly opaque coverage, though there’s a translucency there that allows some of the tones of the natural lip color to still influence the end result. The consistency was lightweight, emollient, and comfortable to wear with light hydration over the four and a half hours it lasted. Urban Decay Backdoor (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Untainted Spice (950) (P, $7.49) is cooler (95% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Tom Ford Ultra-Rich Lip Color ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new lipstick formula in the summer collection. It’s supposed to have “full coverage, high-shine lip color” that hydrates and lasts for six hours. The pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to mostly opaque, but they have moderate slip and a thinner texture that they never reach full coverage. The formula does have a luminous finish with slight shine but isn’t glossy. It’s a very lightweight formula, which makes it comfortable to wear, but the more emollient, thinner consistency seemed to hurt longevity–they lasted between three and five hours for me. The formula was lightly to moderately hydrating on me–more hydrating than Tom Ford’s standard lipstick on the whole–and had a light vanilla scent.

Of course, my eyes zoom in on the brown red, Temptation Awaits, but I have like 3 of the dupes already, including Maybelline Untainted Spice and Tom Ford Guillermo. Must resist!!

Revolve Around Me is my kind of color, however I did not get it as I have too many nude/neutral lipsticks right now. Glad to see it got a rating that shows I don’t actually NEED it.

Politely butting in Zee, I have a recommendation; I have been using MAC Prep and Prime Lip for almost 6 years and I adore it.

I can wear it with any brand or formula of lipstick or gloss and if my lips are feeling particularly dry prior to application, I put a soft layer of good balm underneath and it doesn’t shift the primer. Initially, I let the balm set and sink in and then the primer “locks” the lip balm into my lips for the time worn. A waxy versus a viscous lip balm seems to work best.

This primer doesn’t alter the colour or texture of the applied lipstick or lipgloss and it also adds to its wear time….. which is a nice bonus.

Revolve around Me.. not getting suckered in. Can’t understand how these shades work on you, but not on me. I think I must be a bit lighter and therefore more olive green than you. I read something really interesting the other day. Olive skin can be cool, neutral, and warm. On the cool side of the spectrum, the skintones are typically light and have more green in them, in the neutral spectrum of olive, the skintones run light to light medium and have some yellow tones, but with a green cast, and lastly, on the warm side of olive at the deeper end, the skintones run more golden yellow. I was like EUfreakingREKA when I read this.

Yes, olive is a tough undertone, because it is more likely to be… warmer than cooler (some yellow tones), it can also be very neutral to leaning cool!

Worse still, olive skin can also be a chameleon on the SAME person! Sometimes I look very warm, other times dead-pan neutral, usually depending on what colors I am wearing as well as LIGHTING. Yellow is by far one of the most difficult colors for me to wear, depending on whether its a cool neon lemon or a rich golden yellow.

One of my college housemates was a light blond with blue eyes. A wee tad of her ancestry was Mexican, and she had light cool olive skin and was gorgeous. Unusually pretty.

Revolve Around Me didn’t come out the way i was hoping. I ordered it along with some other pieces form the collection over the weekend. Hmm. Well, since it is on it’s way, I’lll have to check it out. I love Solar Affair. but, it is really close to Sweet Spot which I have from last year. I need to try to get Temptation waits before they sell out! I’m really anxious to try the moisture core lipsticks too. I ordered Pipa. Then I saw some swatches for the nude shades and Otrando and now I want those

Temptation Waits reminds me SO much of my favorite brownish lipstick, MAC Royally Riotous! Of which I have 2 tubes to use up, LoL.
Out of all 3, the coral Solar Affair, looks the most pigmented and like a real lipstick. Which, for $55, I would want. Although those Moisture Core ‘s are so flipping tempting!!! And I seriously doubt those are super pigmened. But I’ll wait and see!

These aren’t for me color wise for sure. I like the of look Temptation Awaits as I have a love hate relationship with brown lippies.

Just love Temptation Awaits, but like Katherine T above, I have a few dupes of this and the best one (with a better rating) is the Maybelline Untainted Spice. Love that lipstick.

Going by the ratings, the 55 dollar price tag hardly seems worth it. Though, I must admit that the shade Temptation Waits looks beautiful on you

Not my colors, but these look great on you, Christine 🙂 (Now, if Temptation Waits had cool, rather than warm, undertones, it might work well on me… )
