Tom Ford Lips & Boys : Swatches, Photos, First Impressions

Hi There!

Sharing a quick post of swatches of the Tom Ford Lips and Boys today. A fabulous collection of 50 lipsticks with a provocative ad campaign to support it. As you may already know, these went on a one day only sale at Selfridges two days ago and I could not resist picking up some for myself.

As much as I hate buying blind, I figured this might very well be the only chance of me getting ahold of these and I caved. Finally I ended up with two choices, Diego and Alejandro. One Orangey red and one plummy deep red!

Fast forward to two days later I got the chance to preview these ‘boys’ and I am happy to report I am very satisfied with my purchases and can rest easy. So for those of you who don’t have a Tom Ford counter nearby I’ve compiled a little edit of 14 lipsticks which I consider my favourites after a long swatch fest of trying out 50 sinful Tom Ford lipsticks! Hope you enjoy!

Finish and texture The collection featured quite a number of frosty and shimmer shades in contrast to the regular Tom Ford lipstick line up, which features mostly cream or satin finishes. The ones featured here were some of the more pigmented colours and swatched buttery smooth. They were very comfortable on the lips and of high quality as expected of Tom Ford products.

Formula According to the press release, these lipsticks are said to be formulated with rare and exotic ingredients such as Soja seed extract, Brazilian Marumaru butter and chamomilla flower oil to create an ultra creamy texture with incredibly smooth application, which I believe reflects in the higher price point of these lipsticks.

Packaging and Pricing These mini lipsticks are packaged identical to the full sized lipsticks. The quality feels the same, though much lighter in weight which make them perfect for touch ups and fit into the tiniest of clutches.

Other info The entire collection will release on the 2nd January 2015 and continue to retail till the end of February, after which they will be withdrawn from the counter. Each lipstick will be retailing at S$50 each and with every trio of lipsticks purchased, you will be entitled to a very cute gift box (seen above).

  1. Thanks for the blogpost! How would you compare these to the Nars Audacious? I can’t quite decide if I wanna pay for the price for the minis/full! Plus I really am enjoying the Nars Audacious!

    1. Hmm, The Nars Audacious has more pigment in one swipe and feels heavier on the lip. And it doesn’t look too flattering on lips with deep lip lines.
      The Tom Ford is a good medium between texture and finish so they look more forgiving on mature lips or lips with a lot of texture and very comfortable and creamy to wear 🙂

      1. Thank you for the short and sweet comparison between the 2. I was trying to buy my mom some Nars lipsticks and I wanted to know how they were in texture especially for ladies of a certain age.

  2. Ah such a great post and swatches Michelle! I bought 5 initially from Selfridges and then recently added Francesco and Patrick when they came back online. But now you have made me want Julian and Wez! Julian reminds me of Anna from the NARS Audacious (which is providing hard to track down)-would you say its comparable?

    1. Hi Stacey,

      Thank you so much for stopping by. You’ve made some nice choices so far 🙂
      When I initially swatched Julian I thought it was rather a unique shade. It has a little bit of mauve in it. Can’t quite recall how close it is to Anna. But I do know that it was one of the nicest one’s from this collection 🙂 I hope you can track it down!
