Whilst I love the Tom Ford shine formula I'm not a fan of the regular version, so whilst I was very interested in news of a third limited edition formula in the form of the lip colour sheer range, at £36 a pop I played save and just ordered the one shade, Pink Dune.
The lipstick packaging is the same as the original line up, a
crisp white with gold edging.
Straight away I am loving the feel and
application, it feels lightweight with just the right amount of slip, it
applies smoothly and feels hydrating so I don't have to worry about the
area looking patchy, dry or with visible lip lines. The wear time is
average at best but then for a sheer range I wouldn't expect it to
have a longer than average wear.
Now onto the colour which is a very sheer peach nude with the barest hint of pink and
heavy golden shimmer. Whilst its nice, its not quite as amazing as I had
hoped. I do really like the actual base colour but just find the finish
a tad too frosty.
Swatched below (this is with four swipes).
Even though TF are the highest priced lipsticks in my collection, I'm impressed enough with the performance that I
definitely want to try another shade from the sheer range, I just think
in hindsight I'd had been best to go for one of the other shades.
I bought this from http://www.selfridges.com
