Tom Ford's first entry into the world of color cosmetics was this lipstick, and it remains one of the brand's standout options.

Housed in a luxurious-looking black and gold tube, this lipstick has a creamy formula that glides onto lips smoothly, packing a potent dose of color (you don't need much to get a lot of color).

Lip Color has a pretty, soft shine finish and feels moisturizing the entire time you're wearing it. It wears well for about 4 or 5 hours (above average for a creamy lipstick formula), and fades to an attractive stain. The variety of nearly 20 shades offers everything from true nudes to bold reds, so there's something for almost everyone.

Did we mention this is also fragrance-free? It's not often you see a high-fashion cosmetics line produce a fragrance-free lip product, but we're glad to see that, as it reduces the risk of irritation.

You certainly don't have to spend this much for a quality cream lipstick (there are many great options available both at drugstores and at department stores), but if you feel like a splurge, this deserves a look, and it isn't likely to leave you disappointed.

Pros:
  • Creamy formula feels moisturizing throughout its wear time.
  • Not a lot of product needed for full coverage.
  • Attractive, soft-shine finish.
  • Fragrance-free—a rarity in designer-themed lipsticks.
Cons:
  • Expensive.

To Tom Ford, there is no more dramatic accessory than a perfect lip. It is the focus of the face and it has the power to define a woman's whole look. Each lip color is Tom Ford's modern ideal of an essential makeup shade. Rare and exotic ingredients, including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil, create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.
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.
