Tom Ford's Ultra Shine Lip Gloss is a no-frills approach to lip gloss that has some great qualities, but, ultimately, nothing that really sets it far apart from the crowd (especially given its price tag).

Housed in an elegant-looking tube with a brush applicator, the first quality in Ultra Shine Lip Gloss' favor is that it's truly opaque - you don't need to apply a lot to get a healthy dose of color. It's not sticky, has a high-shine finish, and, although not fragrance-free, the caramel flavor is very light and fades quickly.

The only drawback is that this wears off very quickly - within a couple of hours. You are left with a bit of a stain afterward, but for this much money and the depth of color this initially imparts, it should have remarkable rather than so-so longevity.

Pros:
  • Opaque, concentrated color.
  • High-shine, non-sticky finish.
Cons:
  • Fades in a couple of hours.

Brand Overview

Tom Ford is one of the world's hottest fashion designers. Coming to prominence in the mid-1990s, he became Creative Director at Gucci's fashion house, creating his own designer line in 2006 and five years later, followed in the footsteps of other high-fashion houses by launching a line of color cosmetics.

Housed in sleek black packaging with "Tom Ford" stamped in prominent gold-embossed lettering, the makeup certainly looks luxurious, and the pricing is definitely in the haute couture range. There are some great performers among Ford's small but well-edited makeup line, and we’re happy to say most of the products have minimal or no fragrance. There are a few exceptions which are noted in our individual reviews.
