The two lipsticks for Fall 2014 were almost lost in the mayhem surrounding Tom Ford Nude Dip eye shadow palette. But they shouldn't be. Tom ford lipsticks are among the most luxurious ones you can find and I adore each one I've ever purchased. I was good this time and only chose one, Négligée, a warm mauve color. It's a bit muted and understated next to the berry and plums that usually mark fall collections, which is a nice change (you can always get Crimson Noir or Bruised Plum).
If you're familiar with Tom Ford lipsticks you know the formula is beautiful and smooth, rich and nourishing without being too heavy or goopy, and applies as easily as in a lipstick commercial. Coverage is full and opaque even in light and nude colors, and obviously in darker ones like Négligée. Longevity is similar to that of Cle de Peau and Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy: good but not nuclear, and requires reapplying after a meal.
Tom Ford lipsticks are scented, but at least in this case the fragrance is stronger in the tube than when it actually goes on the lips, and I forget about it within seconds. They're made in Belgium, which for some reason I find enticing--- just like divine chocolate, I guess. The packaging is as impeccable as always: heavy, magnetic, and elegant.
Bottom Line: like a perfect cashmere sweater.
om Ford Négligée Fall 2014 Lip Color ($50) is a limited edition. available at select department stores and online.
