Tom Ford Beauty Lip Color New 2011 Preview

When I heard the Tom Ford lipsticks are in stock at Nordstrom, my heart started racing. Dropped all the things I was doing, I rushed over to the counter. These were supposed to be released tomorrow but the SA was kind enough to put it out for sale. “These go off the shelf like hot cakes,” said the SA. By the time I got there, a lot of the shades were already sold out. Luckily the colors I had in mind were all waiting for me, 2 of them were also last one. Today is totally my day!

Here are various promotion pictures of the ads. The ads itself are mesmerizing especially the color scheming and such. No one suits the brand image better than Lara Stone, wild, sharp, calm and sexy!

Tom Ford believes that a woman attains true glamour by amplifying her individuality and expressing her own iconic style of sophistication and seductiveness. With Tom Ford Beauty, he introduces eighteen new lip colors that empower a woman to transform her look and mood, and express her most glamorous self.

The formula: Soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter, Chamomilla flower oil

This is the lineup of the 18 shades, ranging from nude, pink, red, and brown. There’s one specific shade that really caught my eye. Take a guess!

I came home with not one, not two, but three boxes! Each one of them are factory sealed, me bow down to Tom Ford. In today’s market, there are not a lot of brands seal wrap their packaging anymore. The main reason is probably to cut cost. But Mr. Ford wants us ladies to have a lipstick that only we ourselves get to open it.

A fine textured dark chocolate black packaging reveals after shelling the plastic wrapper off.

Under a different angle, these boxes look extremely smooth. On the top front of each box a color name sticker is attached, including a number and a name. No more confusion. I don’t appreciate some of the brands that only give you a number. Who in the world can be differentiated by a mere number, not to talk about lipstick color.

On the back of the lipstick tube, there’s also a sticker attached. I got 08 Flamingo, 15 Wild Ginger and 17 Violet Fatale. Yes I was talking about Violet Fatale, a beautiful and unique plum berry shade. Will I be able to pull it off?

This is a glam shot of one individual lipstick with “TF” symbol emboss on top. All 4 corners are lined with gold but the case itself is made of plastic. The weigh is just about right, not too heavy yet got a luxurious feel to it.

It might look dark and black on the previous photo but there’s more to it. Under different angle and lighting, it shows different colors, espresso, mahogany, bordeaux, quite sophisticated.

Once I opened the cap, I immediately smell vanilla. Now I understand why the lady at Nordstrom said “hot cakes”, they do smell like vanilla cupcakes. From left to right are, 08 Flamingo, 15 Wild Ginger, and 17 Violet Fatale. I must admit, out of blind guessing these shades came out quite lovely.

From what I can tell these lipsticks look very moisturizing and pigmented. They truly are luxurious especially wrapped around in Black & Gold. Except Wild Ginger doesn’t seem to contain visible shimmer, Flamingo and Violet Fatale both look a bit sparkly, especially Violet Fatale seems to have multi-colored sparkles. I wonder if they apply shiny or what?

Just by seeing these lipsticks I can imagine the rest of the collection being amazing. Though the packaging changed from white to dark, some of the shades are discontinued, it leaves me even more to look forward to. Bottom line, I can’t wait to see the rest of the collection. Stay tuned for detailed swatches and reviews of each color.

      TF is taking too long with his makeup. But at least we can play with the lipsticks first.

    I love everything about this lipstick except for the price haha but you get what you pay for.

    • admin September 1, 2011 at 11:36 PM

      Honestly, I think the price isn’t all that bad. The formula comprises of great ingredients. The ingredients produce a easy to use lipstick that is very creamy as well. Feels nice.

      The TF lippies are nice you should play with the testers before you buy one.
