Viva

Tom Ford Beauty Viva Lips & Girls Soft Shine Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark reddened fuchsia with neutral-to-cool undertones. It read as more of a “warmer” fuchsia on me between the vibrancy and the lack of distinctive blue undertones. It had faint fuchsia and pink micro-shimmer throughout, which gave it a lightly shiny, luminous finish but didn’t look like heavy frost, so it didn’t emphasize my lip texture or lip lines.

On my lips, it had a lightweight texture that had some slip, which helped it apply evenly and smoothly across my lips without dragging, but it wasn’t heavy and didn’t slide around while I wore it. One stroke yielded nearly opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The lipstick stayed on nicely for five hours, left a very faint stain behind, and was lightly moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.07 oz. - $514.29 Per Ounce

The newest Girls launched with a "Soft Shine" finish but are under the Lip Color umbrella, though it's unclear exactly what is to be expected based on the finish. Given that Tom Ford already has a sheer finish, it seems more likely to be a shinier version of the cream finish, and based on the shades I've seen, means a bit of shimmer/luminosity, too. (If and when I see official information about the finish, I'll be sure to update the overview and ratings accordingly, if necessary.)

The formula seemed to have semi-opaque to opaque coverage, and the shades that fell under opaque coverage seemed to have a subtle translucency to them that yielded a luminous finish--lighter weight, shiny with light glossiness, and gave the illusion of fuller lips for me. The consistency was lightweight, emollient without being overly slippery, and comfortable to apply and to wear. They had decent wear ranging between three and five hours and felt lightly to moderately moisturizing while worn. They were vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.

Candy

Tom Ford Beauty Candy Lips & Girls Soft Shine Lip Color ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark raspberry pink with cool undertones and a soft, pearly sheen–luminous but not overly shimmery, so it didn’t appear frosted or metallic applied to my lips.

The texture was lightly creamy, lightweight, and on the thinner side, but it didn’t feel clingy and was kind to lip imperfections, though there was a smidgen of product that I could see in my deeper lip lines in the close-up photos but not in person. The color payoff was nearly opaque in a single layer, and it applied evenly without tugging. It wore well for four and a half hours, felt lightly hydrating over time, and left behind a faint, fuchsia stain.

Love ’em both, but with them being practically dupes of each other, I’m just trying to decide on one that will work out with my coloring. Which is why I put both on my WL, in order to remind myself to try them both on in-store.

Okay Tom, why don’t you just take all my money. I feel my weakness for lipstick pushing back against my common sense and lack of need for anymore lipstick’s in my lifetime. Thankfully, there are no Tom Ford counters within 8 hours of me so maybe I can stay strong. These shades are my favorite shades. So hard to resist.
