Tom Ford Lips & Boys

Tom Ford Beau

I have to admit that I have a tempestuous relationship with the Tom Ford brand. I rather gave up on the brand because TF always had to be called Mr Ford – I probably wouldn’t have objected in the same way if we’d always called Estee Lauder Mrs Lauder. Or Bobbi, Mrs Brown, and so on. But we didn’t and still don’t. My view is that respect is there to be earned, not given and if you demand such a thing, it often has the opposite effect. Premium never has to mean patronising.

Tom Ford Beau

However, I did love the thinking behind the Tom Ford Lips & Boys collection – a mini lipstick collection (and I love anything mini) named for men in Tom Ford’s past and present and it’s been a long time since I’ve been interested in anything TF. I just don’t buy the hype. I’ve popped Beau next to one of Charlotte Tilbury’s lipsticks for a size reference. I bought Beau myself via Selfridges on the one-day purchase before they go on general release on 25th December.

Tom Ford Beau

It’s worth noting that some of the colours already exist in the Tom Ford regular size lipstick line up. Annoyingly, I can’t remember what I paid for it but I know with the Selfridges postage, it was over £30. I checked over on Temptalia and regular size TF lipsticks are 3 grams and the small size is 2 grams – a regular size lipstick is £37.

So, can spending the best part of £30 on a 2 gram lipstick ever be worth it? There’s no doubt that they’re beautiful – especially if you love tiny things like I do. The formula is very sleek and silky with fulsome coverage but it doesn’t have exceptional last. This shade – typically – wasn’t right for me; it’s just a little bit too pale but I might get away with in summer when my skin isn’t so pasty. But, you know.. I see the attraction. The Tom Ford Lips & Boys does feel rather special; it does feel glamorous, infinitely elegant and as though you have something very luxurious. Bearing in mind I’ve been away from the brand totally for two years so I haven’t really been swayed by PR or marketing hype and I still feel I have something special – that’s quite an achievement. But, I wouldn’t buy another. One is plenty to satisfy my small-and-beautiful craving – the lipsticks themselves just aren’t different enough unless you’re an avid Tom Ford – excuse me, MR Ford, fan – you might as well spend a tenner less on a really good Estee Lauder lippie.

If budget is no object, then pile em up! I love to see any lipsticks done differently, whether it’s in the marketing or in the manufacturing and on that alone, I’m pleased to have mine. But, I don’t need any more.

Clinique Lip Pop: Lipstick for Learners

Clinique Lip Pop Colour and Primer Lipstick

I was sold on the Clinique Lip Pop Colour and Primer Lipstick the moment I first put one on – it has just the most buttery, smooth and sumptuous texture and the colours are punchy and bright. Application is almost foolproof. If ever there was a “lipstick for learners” then this, perhaps along with Chanel’s Rouge Coco, would be it.

Pre-testing, I did think that the whole “primer and lipstick in one” claim would be a bit of a gimmick, but the formula is properly smoothing, as though you’ve already applied a good, matte lipbalm underneath that’s helping everything to look that much more polished. The colour seems to skim over dry or mildly flaky patches and it’s buttery and moisturising without the slightest bit of sliding about.

A few of my favourite shades for you… Here I am before and after applying shade 04, which is called Beige Pop:

To me, this is the most perfect pinky-nude – it’s opaque but not chalky-matte, it has a modern sheen without looking gloopy or patent.

Some may prefer a more “my lips but better” kind of nude, like the one shown below. This one (shade 01) is called Nude Pop. It’s slightly more wearable than Beige Pop, probably, especially if you don’t want to have to pile on a load of mascara and eyeliner, which is often what has to happen to balance out pale nude lips!

I wanted to show you Melon Pop, second from the right in the photograph below, but I seem to have mislaid my pictures! Annoying, because it is, perhaps, my favourite of the bunch. I’ve sent most of my makeup back into storage until I can move into my house later on this summer, otherwise I’d photograph it again for you.

As it stands, you’ll have to make do with me wearing my favourite bright-bright shade from the Lip Pop collection, Poppy Pop.

If you’re looking for an easy-to-wear red then this is it. It doesn’t bleed into fine lines around the mouth, it doesn’t make your teeth look yellow and, with its little bit of juicy sheen, it helps to make thin lips look a teeny bit fuller. Which is a bonus.

Also a bonus: the £16 price tag. For a lipstick with a faultless finish, I’d say that’s pretty good value for money. Find all of the shades at Boots.com here.
