Tom Ford Beauty Aphrodite Lip Color Sheer is a rich, brighter medium plum with strong,w arm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without dragging. The texture was lightly creamy, lightweight, and had enough slip that it was comfortable to apply and to wear, but the color wasn’t prone to sliding around while worn. The real “downside” to the product was that it was much more pigmented than advertised. It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
Tom Ford Beauty Carriacou Lip Color Sheer is a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was far more color payoff than anticipated based on the description of this formula (“sheer”)–some may prefer it this way. The texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and easy to apply in a single layer as it never tugged. The color applied evenly but had slight settling into my lip lines, though it wasn’t too noticeable from a normal viewing distance until the third hour of wear. It stayed on well for three and a half hours and felt moisturizing while worn.
