- 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!
