In the Buff
Tom Ford Beauty In the Buff Gloss Luxe is a light, peachy gold with a dusting of gold sparkle and a high-gloss finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which was as marketed, that applied evenly across my lips and smoothed out most of my lip lines. It added warmth to my lips and lightened them slightly, which ultimately made them appear a little more even than they naturally were, but the lightness and sheerness will make it vary in how it presents from person to person quite a bit. The texture was smooth, plush, and spreadable without being tacky or heavy to wear. It lasted well for three hours and was moisturizing over time.
Tom Ford Beauty Sunrise Pink Gloss Luxe is a darker, pink-leaning coral with soft, warm undertones and a cream finish. At the time of this review, this was the only cream-finish shade tested, and it did not perform as well as the shimmery/sparkly shades; the cream finish was more prone to settling into my lip lines and didn’t soften those lip lines or apply as evenly. This particular shade also had higher coverage–more like semi-opaque–but the consistency was similar in feel: plush, gel-like, non-sticky, and comfortable to wear. The color wore well for four hours and was hydrating while worn.
