Product Info:
Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Lips bring the play of light and dark, integral to Tom Ford's face philosophy, to color contouring. Two shades (one dark and one light) complement for shaping lips with high pigmentation in a velvet matte finish. Using the dual-ended applicator, featuring a sponge on one end and a lip brush on the other, both shades can be applied to create a subtle to dramatic ombré effect. The powder-gelèe formula features emollient oils and a blend of polymers that provide rich color release and adherence. Each color combination is designed to complement every skin tone.

Today I will be reviewing Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Lips in Automatic, Impulse and Tantalize. If you haven't seen my previous sneak peek/first impression post with the complete swatches of Tom Ford Spring Collection 2017 check it out here. The packaging of these lip duos are the same size as their blush compact, and it comes with a dual ended brush. There is a total of six shades I purchased three I decided to play it safe and grabbed two nudes and a pop of color. These lip duos are very creamy in texture, and it's highly pigmented. Although these lipsticks have a matte finish, they're not drying on the lips, and it doesn't settle into the lines. I love how lightweight these lipsticks are, and it's so velvety and silky in consistency. I also love how the shades were put together you can create an ombre lips by applying the darker shade then dab the lighter shade in the middle you can actually play with these lip duos and get creative with it.

I've noticed the nude duos are more matte than the bright ones so if you have very dry chapped lips I suggest priming your lips well before applying the lipsticks. I must admit I was skeptical at first cause I don't really like to use a lip palette, but to my surprise, I've been using these non-stop ever since I purchased them. I prefer using the lip brush than the sponge, and I like to use a lip liner with these lip duos I find layering it helps these lipsticks last longer. These had worn for 3-4 hours before it started fading and the bright shade did leave a light stain behind.

Overall
I'm a big fan of Tom Ford lipsticks, and I really like these lip duos the colors are coordinated perfectly, and my favorite ones are Impulse and Tantalize. All though I'm used to the traditional lipstick bullet I don't mind carrying and using these lip palettes, and it's very easy to apply with the mini brush.

  1. I'm really loving lip palettes at the moment so these ones are extremely tempting to me! So far, the lightweight feeling on the lips is something I have experienced with all my lip palettes, I believe it is mainly due to the fact that they don't need a lot of glue/thick ingredients as a stick would to keep its shape throughout the uses! Lovely swatches, I really like the shades Automatic and Tantalize!
