Fascinated with Tom Ford eyeshadows, I decided to try Tom Ford lipsticks. Honestly, I had very high expectations from Tom Ford Ultra-Shine Lip Color line. I picked two natural colors: 107 L’Amant and 108 La Notte.
The Soleil Collection packaging looks light and refreshing after all those dark makeup boxes. The square shape gives me a vintage feel which is a good thing.
Tom Ford Ultra-Shine Lipstick 107 L’Amant (on the left) looks like a cool-toned beige color, but on my lips, it transforms into light pink.
Meanwhile, Tom Ford Ultra-Shine Lipstick 108 La Notte (on the right) is a medium warm peach color. No shimmer was detected in both lipsticks.
Here’s how you read the swatches: on the left, one swipe and multiple swipes of Tom Ford Ultra-Shine Lipstick 107 L’Amant, and on the right, one swipe and multiple swipes of Tom Ford Ultra-Shine Lipstick 108 La Notte.
Tom Ford Ultra-Shine lipstick 107 L’Amant is amazing color! Natural and sexy at the same time! But the application is tricky: it should be applied only with a brush, a very small amount. If applied straight from the bullet, it may go into the lip lines and produce a horizontal line on the lower lip. Come on, Tom Ford, you can do better for $56!
I expected Tom Ford Ultra-Shine lipsticks to have soft, gliding through texture similar to Chanel Rouge Coco Flash or YSL Rouge Volupte Shine textures. But it turned to be thicker and quite dry, reminding me of Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy lipsticks. I would definitely recommend applying a lip balm before using Tom Ford Ultra-Shine lipsticks. Never the less, the color 107 L’Amant is so unique that I’m ready to forgive the vanilla scent and complicated application.
Tom Ford Ultra-Shine lipstick 108 La Notte is a quite juicy color! Peach lipsticks always look fresh on me. Since 108 La Notte is a darker shade, it doesn’t seem to produce a horizontal line on my lower lip. The texture may look a little dry, but it doesn’t feel dry or irritating. Using a lip balm is recommended.
Tom Ford Ultra-Shine lipstick 108 La Notte is a cute shade, but not something extraordinary that I would keep for $56 since the texture is not perfect.
My verdict is: I choose Tom Ford Ultra-Shine lipstick 107 L’Amant because of its unique edgy color.
For my eyes and eyebrows, I used Tom Ford eye color quad 28 De La Creme.
