I’d previously swatched Tom Ford’s lipsticks, but somehow hadn’t gotten around to his lipglosses. An oversight on my part, since Mr. Ford believes in matching your gloss to your lipstick. (As opposed to MAC, which believes in tinkering with different liner, lipstick, and gloss to achieve a desired shade.)
Mr. Ford’s Ultra Shine glosses are $45. They come in square tubes with a brush applicator (and an unusually long wand, to allow you to reach all the way to the bottom). They’re generally creme-finish (except for Pink Guilt), but if you like a little sparkle on your lips, Mr. Ford has a solution. His Lip Lacquer Vinyl is a clear gloss with silver shimmer/sparkles. It comes in a squeeze tube with a slant-tip applicator, and is $30.
Naked (01) is nude beige pink with a few tiny gold sparkles. Rose Crush (02) is warm, terracotta, rose-toffee brownie pink. Tawny Pink (10) is a warm, natural nude rose. Pink Guilt (04) is a shimmery, sparkly rose bronze. Peach Absolut (07) is peach-pink. Sugar Pink (06) is candy pink. Sahara Pink (03) is medium mauvey-rose-pink. Love Bruise (05) is a bruisey pink-plum with tiny gold sparkles. Lost Cherry (08) is lacquered cherry red. Wet Violet (09) is deep, grape-juice red-purple with a few tiny purple sparkles.
The Tom Ford lipglosses are available at Neiman Marcus (free shipping at any price with code APRILFS) and Saks (free shipping at $200 with code SFASHIP). Unfortunately, Nordstrom.com does not carry the Tom Ford lipglosses at this time.
