Tom Ford x Nordstrom Boys & Girls Clutch Size Lip Color Trio Review & Swatches

Summer 2019

Tom Ford Beauty Summer 2019 Boys & Girls Clutch Size Lip Color Trio ($88.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, limited edition trio of Boys & Girls Lip Colors exclusively available during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale (open now to cardholders, July 19th to the public). Two shades are Lip Color Sheers (Whitney and Philippa) and one is an Ultra-Rich Lip Color (Antonia). Whitney and Philippa were a bit shorter-wearing and were more pigmented than marketed, while Antonia didn’t apply as flatteringly as expected.


Whitney

Whitney is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a soft, metallic finish with finer pearl. The texture was lightweight, creamy without being too slippery, and comfortable to apply and to wear in a single stroke. It had more semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. This shade stayed on well for three and a half hours but 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.

Philippa

Philippa is a medium-dark, peachy beige with warm undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It had a more luminous, lightly glossy finish to it as well. It had medium, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) with a lightweight, moderately emollient texture that had some slip but didn’t sink noticeably into my lip lines. The color applied evenly and was comfortable to apply and to wear. It lasted well for three and a half hours on me and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Antonia

Antonia is a bright, medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and barely-there gold pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that could have applied a bit more evenly, as it had a tendency to separate along my upper lip and around my deeper lip lines. The texture was lightweight, moderately emollient, and thin without being clingy. The color wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating while worn.

B+ isn’t so bad, but I was hoping for better out of these. And then I noticed that MAC Shy Girl and VG V were dupes for the 1st two shades, so I may have been talked out of this purchase!

$88 (so lord knows what it would cost here) for 3 minis and only a B+ overall? And this is a big deal Nordstrom’s sale? Nope, no thanks. It’s getting to the point where, if you look up “rip off” in a thesaurus, you might just find “Tom Ford” as a synonym. Even if I liked these colours, I wouldn’t be gnashing my teeth about them not being easily accessible.

The quality is not worth the money, IMHO. One of these lipsticks bears the name of a woman I know that I don’t like, which makes the shade seem worse than it is. Is that weird? Lol

Both TF and FN can do far better than this, or than they usually put out for a Nordie’s sale/special. Quality slips at this point, much as it does with the maxi-product offerings at holidays. That’s the time cosmetics cos should be working extra hard for s.t. special, unique, at a price point that makes us elated that we scored that special/holiday/LE thing. Alas, not so much….
