Tom Ford is one of those prestige beauty brands that knows what a woman wants when it comes to lipsticks! I recently tried out their new ”Mesmerizing Matte Color Lipsticks”. The collection features 8 new matte lip colours varying from nude to bold shades ($50 each). The colours are highly pigmented and easily build able to a full coverage. The satiny finish isn’t very mattifying nor drying, instead it feels very creamy and moisturizing on the lips.

This is an absolutely beautiful red colour but not a shade that I would typically wear during the day since it’s quite bold and vibrant. Instead, I would wear it in the evening for special occasion. The texture is incredibly creamy and glides on easily when applying, not to mention the highly pigmented coverage!

Surprisingly, I find this shade very wearable during the day. I like the fact that its not too colourful and not too bold, just enough to add that little pop of colour to a natural make-up look. Both lipsticks last quite long and it turns into a lip stain after several hours. Unless the lipstick is being removed with an oily make-up remover, the lip stain even stays on for the next day!
If I had to compare these lipsticks, I would compare them to the NARS Audacious lipsticks. The pigmentation is very similar as well as the texture. However, not many shades from the Audacious collection leave a stain on.
