Quickly wanted to share my favorite lipsticks from one of my favorite brands – Tom Ford! There’s no denying the fact that Tom Ford Beauty is a luxury line; the products are pricey, and I know that I am very lucky to have been sent items from the collection over the past two years. That said, I also think that Tom Ford offers some of the best makeup on the market in terms of quality and color. There’s no beating the eyeliner pen, which is essentially foolproof, smudge-proof, and is still going strong after several months of use; the eyeshadow quads are a thing of dreams [cognac sable, I’m looking at you]; and my personal favorite, the lipsticks, are creamy, moisturizing, and come in the best. packaging. ever.
The above photos feature lipsticks from three different lines of formulas – the standard Lip Colors, the Lip Color Sheers, and the Lip Color Shines. The Lip Colors are very pigmented, and have a very luxe creamy formula that never dries out my lips. My favorite shade, Pink Dusk, is a perfect pink-nude shade, and is one of my top choices for fall and winter. It applies smoothly and evenly to lips, and doesn’t accentuate dry or chapped areas. It also has excellent lasting power – about 5-6 hours on me.
The Lip Color Sheers are, as the name suggests, a bit more sheer than the Lip Colors. However, I find that you can definitely build up color and opacity with a few swipes. The formula is still creamy, but more light-weight. They are slightly more moisturizing to me, and impart a really lovely sheen on lips. My favorites are In The Buff, a beautiful beige with golden shimmer [a perfect summer nude]; Paradiso, a gorgeous medium pink that can be worn sheer [love patting this down and wearing it as more of a stain], or really built up for a more bold look; and SkinnyDip, an incredible sheen-y peachy pink with golden shimmer – another really perfect summer shade that goes with everything.
Lastly, the Lip Color Shines. These beauties are the ultimate lipstick-lip balm, and definitely have the thickest, creamiest formula I’ve come across. They pack a ton of moisture + keep my lips hydrated all day, and come in some of the prettiest colors. Frolic is another perfect peachy-pink with golden shimmer, and Nubile is a deeper rosy-brown that is a great won’t-wash-you-out nude [love pairing this with pink cheeks, a champagne shadow, and winged black liner].
