Tom Ford Lips & Boys in Drake Review & Swatches

In 2014, Tom Ford created a Lips & Boys Lipstick Collection. The purpose of the collection, was to create lipsticks inspired by the notable men in the designer's life. I never purchased anything from his 2014 collection, but over the Black Friday weekend his NEW 2015 SHADES caught my eye (specifically a purple shade called Drake). I've never tried any of Tom Ford's lipsticks, because at $52 a POP, the price truly curbed my Tom Ford lipstick desire! HaHaHa The lipsticks in THIS collection are $35, but please realize they are NOT full size (more like a deluxe mini)! $35 was a bit more palatable, so I decided to try one. The black & gold case the lipstick comes in is VERY luxurious! Take this out of your purse and it screams class! The lipstick has Tom Ford's initials inscribed on it and it also smells like vanilla :) I found the lipstick to be smooth, creamy, very moisturizing and absolutely luxurious. It also had a beautiful shine. "Drake" is a beautiful purple, but it's MUCH LIGHTER than what's shown on Tom Ford's website. It's also less metallic, than what you would think. This lipstick has more of a "milky" tone to it. When I swatched it on the back of my hand, it reminded me of Lipstick Queen's Let Them Eat Cake (metallic & milky)! However, Lipstick Queen's lipstick is a much lighter purple on the lips. Also, twist the lipstick 2-3 times, and you're done. There's not much product for the price. So if you plan on using this lipstick everyday, you'll run out very quickly (you'll have to buy several). This is a "special occasion" lipstick. If you purchase 3 of these lipsticks, you'll get a special case to store them in. Overall, I'm pretty pleased with my purchase. The formula is awesome...the packaging is exquisite...I just wish Tom Ford gave you more product! It looks like he will release new colors for this collection every year. Have you tried Tom Ford's lipsticks? I want to try more, but with those prices I want to try them in a store. Who wants to spend $52 on a lipstick color they hate or doesn't look good on them? LOL

  12. That shade is gorgeous on you Kim! The hefty price tag has kept me from purchasing Tom Ford lipsticks but I should look into this range. I'm so slow with using up my lipsticks that I might actually be able to finish one haha ;p

  14. I've treated myself to one Tom Ford lipstick in my life, for my 29th birthday. The formula is beautiful, the package is stunning but honestly, I still don't feel like the price point is justifiable. But the minis always tempt me, there are so many fabulous colours. I love this one on you, Kim!
    xox,

  15. Ooo laa laa, Kim! That shade looks like it's made specially for you, you look freaking lovely with it! I can't justify buying a Tom Ford lipstick either, the price gives me a mini heart attack. LOL!

  25. This looks amazing on you! I do think the swatches on the models on his website are a bit misleading though. And I definitely can't fork over $50+ for a lippie. But there is one of these I think I will treat myself to!!! I just need to get the courage to pull the trigger. Talk me into it? haha

  26. This is a great lip colour on you Kim. Admittedly, I've only tried a couple Tom Ford beauty colours, but I did love the luxe packaging. Glad that you always keep us updated with all of these new beauty items. :)

  31. I had no idea Tom Ford lipsticks were so expensive, though you managed to find a pretty good deal on this mini size! One thing is for certain Kim - it's worth every single penny, it looks gorgeous on you!! :)

  33. aaaahhhh Tom Ford Lipstick!! I have seen this signature packing a million times on instagrama and have heard so much about it but like you previously, I have not tried them, not even at the counter as we don't have them here from where I am (KL, Malaysia).

    I do spot some favourite colour shades over at their website from the link you shared and they look super shiny and metallic looking, though the colour selection is pretty wide and varied, which is awesome!

    It is nice to hear that you absolutely LOVE your choice. If I were you, and I realized that the one and only lipstick from my high expectation brand does not live up to that, I would be heart broken *_^

    The shade looks more deep brown to me here though, perhaps it is the lighting, but yes! I have to agree with you, the packaging is super luxurious! and yes, more products, please TOM FORD *_^

    Nice lovely post and thanks for sharing. Have a beautiful week ahead.

    With love,

  34. Wow, stunning shade! Very Tom Ford! A sexy and glamorous color. I would love this but more than I want to spend on lipstick. Although I do want one of his perfumes. Thanks for sharing!

  35. Hi Kim,
    I am sure it is expensive for a good reason. I love the color on you. I am sure it will look good on me too.

  36. This color is so gorgeous on you! I have a couple of Tom Ford lipsticks, but none from the lips and boys collection. They're so cute, and love the boy names.

  37. Ooooh, this lipstick is SOOO pretty *_*
    I love the color on you too! If only I could afford dropping that much on one lipstick...aha one of these days I'll treat myself!

  38. I never knew that Tom Ford named lipstick after prominent men! Thanks for sharing that fun fact. I'd agree, $52 is a little much for a lipstick but the color looks amazing on you. I always lover your honest reviews! Xo, Ellese

  41. i haven't been able to splurge on one, partly because lipsticks are so unpredictable! if i knew the color was a sure thing, i'd feel better about spending $50!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thanks for the review. I've been wanting to try them, but like you mentioned, they're pricey. I've heard a lot of good things about them, so it's good to know that it's been consistent.
    Happy Holidays, Kim!

  43. I've ALWAYS wanted to try Tom Ford cosmetics. It looks like they deliver too. I'll definitely try it some time!
