Tom Ford Beauty Martin Lips & Boys Soft Matte Lip Color is a medium, dusty pink with strong, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that was weightless and comfortable to apply and to wear.
It had more slip than most of the shades in the Soft Matte range, though it was definitely more velvety in its glide compared to the original Lip Color formula. The color applied evenly, but there was a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines; it wasn’t enough to be noticeable in person. It lasted nicely for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
Tom Ford Beauty Deveren Lips & Boys Soft Matte Lip Color is a brighter, pinky-red with a natural sheen. It had subtle, cool undertones, but it was lighter than most reds yet deeper than reddish-fuchsia kind of shades, too. I’d consider this a tricky shade to classify!
The texture was smooth, velvety, and comfortable to apply as it glided across my lips with ease but didn’t feel traditionally creamy or emollient–had the glide of a silicone-based primer. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was as intended, that was buildable to medium coverage. The product applied evenly and didn’t catch on imperfections on my lips. It had a near weightless feel that was neither drying nor hydrating over the four hours it lasted for.
