LIP GLOSS, Lips, NC20, TOM FORD, Yishan | by — December 18, 2012


Brand: Tom Ford
Range: Ultra Shine Lipgloss
Shade: Naivete (Limited Edition)
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Launched as part of the Fall 2012 collection, Naivete is a limited edition shade described as a ‘violet pink’, but on me it’s more of a burgundy
  • Tom Ford’s Ultra Shine Lipglosses are high in shine, plush in texture, and saturated in colour and provides a long lasting sophisticated lacquer finish.
  • The long lasting properties are thanks to the moderately sticky texture, which also helps seal lips from moisture loss keeping it soft and protected from dehydration.
  • Verdict: If you don’t mind a bit of stickiness, Tom Ford lipglosses are worth the splurge for its sophisticated range of shades, and its ability to sculpt lips beautifully into a voluptuous pout.  A little really goes a long way, and Naivete is an effortless way to get onboard the oxblood lip trend.
  • Beauty Tip: For an everyday look, apply only one coat & use your lips to blend it all over.  The residue on your brush is enough to touch up the lip line & cupids bow.  Or for a bolder effect – line the lips with a similar shade of lip pencil to intensify the shade (so you won’t need to over apply lacquer) and prevent feathering.  Finish with a touch of gloss only on the centre of the lips.

I applied a generous layer for maximum effect, but in real life, that much gloss looked a little “over the top” (resulting in a little feathering) despite it looking gorgeous in the photo.  Normally I prefer to use only half the amount I did for an everyday finish.

 RRP: $60 AUD
