Brand: Tom Ford
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Violet Fatale
Swatched by the lovely: Katherine

Each Lip Color is Tom Ford’s modern ideal of an essential makeup shade. Rare and exotic ingredients, including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil, create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.

  • Katherine describes Violet Fatale as purple in the tube but fuschia on the lips.  It has medium-high pigmentation and a lot more opaque than Cherry Lush.
  • Read the rest of Katherine’s blog post to find out her verdict on this lipstick’s moisturising and long lasting properties.
  • Thanks Katherine for the lovely swatch!

Brand: Tom Ford
Range: Lip Lacquer
Shade: Pink Lust (limited edition)
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The 2013 Summer Collection features shades that make skin look like they’re bathed in sunset light with a sultry and sublime glow, with delicate pearl tones of pink, nude and peach.
  • Pink Lust is a light pink enriched with golden pearls that can be worn on its own (for a sheer pink golden veil), or layered over pink beige or nude lipsticks for a sensual sheen.
  • Despite being labelled as a “lip lacquer”, the texture is very lightweight, smooth and non-sticky.
  • Verdict: This is my second Tom Ford Lip Lacquer, and I much prefer the pink tones in this compared to the pure gold one I received last Spring, as it’s more versatile and looks more natural than a golden shimmer.  This lip lacquer is definitely for the nude lipstick aficionados.  For the same price, I’d rather go for Tom Ford Ultra Shine Lip Glosses as they’re much more pigmented and better suited to wearing on their own.

Brand: Tom Ford
Range: Lip Color Shines
Shades: Quiver, Frolic, Insidious, Willful
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Tom Ford Lip Color Shines give a semi-transparent veil of colour, in a decadent buttery texture with a luminous finish.
  • Available in 3 neutral shades – Nubile (rose nude), Abandon (light tan), Bare (beige), 5 romantic pink shades – Chastity (blush pink), Smitten (honeysuckle pink), Quiver (light blue pink), Frolic (pink peach) and Insidiuous (apricot).  For those that like a pop of colour, there are 2 vivid shades – Willful (orange red) and Ravenous (hot cerise pink).
  • Glides on like butter and feels smooth and moisturising thanks to Tom Ford’s signature blend of rare ingredients including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil.
  • The packaging of the Lip Color Shines are slimmer and more elongated than Tom Ford Lipsticks, and is more ergonomic for quick application.
  • These are sheerer than Chanel Rouge Coco Shines, but the buttery texture of Lip Color Shines is more dense, and my lips feels more softened and moisturised.
  • Verdict: Out of the 4 shades I tried, Frolic is favourite as it gives my lips a peachy nude finish that makes my lips look paler than they really are.  It’s now my favourite easy nude lip that gives a more brighter and more innocent look than the warmth in a beige nude lip. The pigments are more noticeable with direct application from the bullet, and I recommend it for pale to light pink lip tones. As the pale shades settle noticeably in lip lines, those with pigmented lip tones might be better suited to the vivid shades – Willful or Ravenous.

I applied a generous layer but smoothed it out with a lip brush, as the pale shades tend to settle in my crease lines which don’t look so good in photography.But for everyday use, I’d just slather it on straight from the bullet (which makes it look more pigmented) as no one’s really going to notice the creasing!

The Great Gatsby Inspired Lip Tutorial

Great Gatsby Tutorial

The 1920’s saw the rise of new lipstick formulas – evolving from salves to lip stains, stick form and glosses – and an obsession with achieving dainty lips with a perfectly shaped cupids bow.  Since my lips are already naturally full, it looks unrealistic to draw my lips into a smaller shape or elevate my cupids bow, so I’ve stuck to my natural lip shape with a rounded out cupids bow.  The lips seen in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby film lean towards a creamy demi-matte finish, but I added a touch of gloss to give it a glamorous lacquered finish.

I chose to do a long lasting tutorial, as many dark lipsticks often sink into my lip lines or leave a patchy finish once worn off.  Alternatively, you could also use pencil only (I’d go lighter with MAC Lip Pencil “Currant”), a liquid stain (YSL Glossy Stain “Violet Edition”) or if you don’t have issues with lip lines you could go with lipstick only (Tom Ford “Black Orchid”).

The Great Gatsby Inspired Lip Tutorial

  1. Prep moisturised lips with a lip primer to prevent the dark colours from sinking into lip lines.  I used Too Faced Lip Insurance over Molton Brown Pep-Rich Lip Booster.
  2. Fill in your entire lips with a dark wine lip pencil.  I used MAC Lip Pencil “Nightmoth”. Use a lip brush to smooth it out evenly.
  3. Apply a burgundy lipstick – creamy, pigmented & long lasting formulas work best.  I used Chanel Rouge Coco “Rivoli”.
  4. Smooth out the lipstick with a lip brush.  The brush I used in this tutorial is by Shiseido.
  5. You can stop here, or to achieve a lacquer finish, apply a thin layer of a burgundy lip gloss such as Tom Ford Ultra Shine Gloss “Naivete”.
  6. Smooth out the gloss using the lipgloss applicator & blend with your lips gently to finish off.

The finished result looks like a deep wine lip in strong lighting, but in natural lighting the MAC Nightmoth lip pencil gives it a really dark vampy finish.

Hope you liked the tutorial!

Do you prefer a matte or glossy 1920’s lip?

Brand: Tom Ford
Range: Lipstick
Shade: Cherry Lush
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

Tom Ford Lip Colors are formulated with rare and exotic ingredients including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomile flower oil create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated color pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.

  • Cherry Lush – a vibrant blue red is a mini-sized lipstick that I picked up as a Gift With Purchase when I ticked Tom Ford “Jasmin Rouge” fragrance off my lust-have list.
  • The new Tom Ford Lipsticks (black & gold packaging) are an improved formula from the previous version (white & gold) – a lot more moisturising, ultra creamy and feels soft and plush.
  • The intense pigment & pliable texture makes it effortless to achieve a precise bold lip even when applying directly from the bullet as it glides evenly across the lip surface.
  • The pigment is so finely milled that it does an amazing job at filling in all the lip crevices without needing a lip brush to blend, and takes several times to remove all the pigment completely from lips.
  • Unlike the previous formula, you no longer need to use a lip balm beforehand, as it’s moisturising enough on its own.
  • Lasting power is moderate, and fades into a diffused finish after a few hours.
  • Verdict: If I had to choose between Cherry Lush and the red lipsticks from the Jasmin Rouge collection, it comes down to finish and hue.  I’d recommend the Jasmin Rouge range if you like a soft-matte finish, and Cherry Lush for a creamy finish.  The 4 shades in Jasmin Rouge lean towards warm tones, whereas there is no doubt Cherry Lush is a blue red which suit all skin tones, particularly fair.
