Tom Ford Sonja & Scarlett Boys & Girls Sheer Lip Colors Reviews & Swatches

Sonja

Tom Ford Beauty Sonja Boys & Girls Lip Color SheerTom Ford Beauty Sonja Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a rich, medium pinky-red with cooler undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation–far more pigmented than promised–with a lightly emollient consistency that glided across my lips comfortably. The lipstick sat well on my lips and helped to smooth out my lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.07 oz. - $514.29 Per Ounce

The Lip Color Sheer formula is supposed to have a "semi-sheer effect" with a "creamy" and "hydrating" formula. They are a sheerer lip color, which may or may not be one's cup of tea; if you are looking for pigment, look elsewhere, but if you're someone who likes sheerer coverage, lightweight, hydrating textures, then it might be a formula for you.

There are several shades in the range that have a more transformative effect, as they contain a lot of shimmer/sparkle or have a more duochrome or iridescent-like finish. There are others, typically deeper, richer hues (reds, berries, etc.) that are more medium coverage. The wear ranged a lot from as short as two hours to as long as five hours but most wore around three hours. The formula is lightly hydrating with a very lightweight feel on the lips. They are vanilla scented but have no discernible taste.

Scarlett

Tom Ford Beauty Scarlett Boys & Girls Lip Color SheerTom Ford Beauty Scarlett Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, light-medium red with warm undertones and a glossy sheen. It had medium to semi-opaque color coverage–I could see my lip freckle peeking through and tell this shade had some translucency to it. The color applied evenly and easily across my lips, which didn’t emphasize my lip texture or lip lines. It stayed on nicely for four hours and was lightly hydrating. This shade is a repromote, but I found my newest version to be a bit more pigmented, which gave it a redder look on my lips.

Sometimes a beautiful stained glass effect in a red lipstick such as these is very welcome and appreciated. I could certainly see myself rocking either one on a less made-up day!

Love both of these a lot. Another to add to my list of products to check out when I am in Seattle next week. I regret that no one carried TF in either Missoula or Spokane which are my closest stores that carry high end makeup. These look gorgeous on you, Christine.
