As you all might know, Tom Ford is a luxury brand and so their beauty products come with a high price tag as well. Even though I always loved the look of the brand, I couldn’t see myself paying $56 for just one Tom Ford Lipstick. Even the Boys & Girls lipsticks, which are slightly smaller in size, retail for a whopping $36. But thankfully, Sephora came through last summer and the Boys & Girls lipsticks were 50% off. It was finally time for me to snatch 2 of the lipsticks!
The Tom Ford Lip Color Lipsticks retail for $56 and contain 0.1 oz/ 2.96 ml. The Tom Ford Boys & Girls Lipsticks retail for $36 and contain 0.07 oz/ 2.07 ml. Math isn’t my strength at all so correct me if I’m wrong, but if you compare the price and size of the lipsticks, the Boys & Girls lipsticks are eventually cheaper.
Most of the time, buying a bigger product is cheaper in the end but that’s not the case with these lipsticks. Again, correct me if I’m wrong because 2+2 is already a struggle for me lol. This is an exaggeration though, I know 2+2 is 5. Hahaha, I’m kidding it’s 4 I know but the fact still is, I’m just bad at math.
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to test some of the lipsticks and share my thoughts on if I think a Tom Ford lipstick is worth the money. I did this with Pat McGrath LuxeTrance Lipsticks as well, which are quite expensive too. However, with their $37 price tag for 4g/.14oz, they’re still way more affordable than the Tom Ford lipsticks. So let’s find out what we think of the Tom Ford lipsticks and if they are worth their expensive price tag.
Tom Ford Lipstick
The two shades I got are Deveren and Rolando. Two beautiful nude shades, one with a more peachy undertone and the other has a more pinkish undertone. Deveren, the one with the pinkish undertone, is my personal favorite but I also really like Rolando too.
The formula feels super soft on the lips, they look matte but they don’t feel drying at all. Even after application, the formula still feels creamy on the lips but looks matte. The formula is also super lightweight and I would say medium coverage, it’s not a full-coverage lipstick but it is pretty buildable. I don’t think it’s super long-wearing though, I would say 2.5 hours without eating. It does fade pretty, with no harsh lines or crumbles. It’s a comfortable lipstick, looks pretty and soft but also applies smooth. Formula-wise they’re very nice! I also really like the packaging, super luxurious and pretty.
One of my favorite lipstick formulas is the Huda Beauty Power Bullet lipstick so I want to compare that one to Tom Ford. For reference, the Huda Beauty Power Bullet Lipstick size is 0.10 oz/ 3 g and retails for $25. That means you’ll get even (a mini bit) more than the $56 Tom Ford Lipstick for half the Tom Ford price. Moreover, the Huda Beauty lipsticks are super comfortable as well, are full coverage, lightweight, and long-wearing (4 hours at least).
Even though I think the Tom Ford Lipstick formula is very nice, wears comfortable and the colors are stunning, I don’t think it’s worth the $36 or $56 price tag if I compare them to the Huda Beauty ones which are way more affordable and basically perform the same, if not better.
However, I can see myself grabbing more of the Tom Ford lipsticks if they’ll have another 50% off sale at Sephora. I wouldn’t purchase them at full price.
