Tomoko

Tom Ford Beauty Tomoko Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium pink with warmer undertones and a fine, sprinkling of gold pearl paired with a lightly glossy finish. It had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to medium-full coverage that applied evenly for the most part with just the tiniest amount of product that I noted in my deeper lip lines in the close-up photos but couldn’t detect in person. The lipstick was lightweight, thinner but not clingy, and emollient enough to glide on easily. It lasted for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

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.

Helena

Tom Ford Beauty Helena Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddened plum with warm undertones and a cream-like finish–a little more luminous than a true “cream” to my eye. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was more than described for the formula. The color applied evenly across my lips while also smoothing out my lip lines and giving my lips a fuller, plumper appearance. It wore well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Hands down, Helena is my jam! Perfect for an on-the-go lipstick that could go with almost anything. Sometimes, this is exactly what I’m looking for in my ridiiic stash!

Helena is very pretty, but there’s something about Tom Ford that kind of creeps me out, though I can’t explain why and I don’t know if anyone else gets this feeling. I have no idea why!!!
