Tom Ford Lip Color Matte Gift Set | Swatches and Review

Gift Courtesy of Tom Ford Beauty (Affiliate Links)

If you love a great matte lipstick, and you love Tom Ford– then you really need to try one of his gorgeous Lip Color Mattes.  An other idea is to resort to shameless gift hinting to loved-ones trying to find you that perfect je ne sais quoi, and the perfect gift for such occasions is undoubtedly a gift box filled with these stunning jewels! They come pre-packaged in the matte and regular formulas, but in-store you can customize with the colors that you want the most.
According to Tom Ford Beauty,

Tom Ford Lip Color Matte creates a powerfully sophisticated look of unadulterated color. 

Formulated with luxurious, velvet matte finish, the lip color matte smoothes comfortable onto the lips in a spectrum of richly pigmented hues from sensuous pink neutrals to alluring bold.
As I said previously.

"The richness of these colors translates to serious opacity in a single swipe. If you have an aversion to matte lipsticks there is an alternative for you, but let it be said, and this point cannot be sufficiently underscored, that Tom Ford Lip Color Matte lipsticks are an altogether new species of matte lipsticks. These are not the moisture depleting mattes of yesterday that will leave your lips war-torn. You will still want to prep your lips, and if your lips are naturally prone to being dry-- then you will likely want a nice moisturizing base."
Left to Right: Ruby Rush, Velvet Cherry, Black Dahlia (LE) and First Time (LE)

Surprisingly, Black Dahlia can still be found at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, but it will be harder to track down First Time.
Ruby Rush is a gorgeous blue-based red.

Velvet Cherry is a deep and dark blue-based blackened red.

Black Dahlia is a vampy deep plum that is in the same color family as Tom Ford Black Orchid and Bruised Plum.

First Time is a warm peachy pink nude that is is what would result if Blush Nude and Spanish Pink had a baby.
You will note from these swatches that Tom Ford's matte lipsticks definitely has some sheen, but make no mistake about it these are very long-wearing and richly pigmented. 
Here are all of the Tom Ford Lip Color Mattes swatched. Refer to my initial post with many more swatches here. The asterisks indicate the colors in my gift box being featured.
Overall Assessment: I have such love for the new Tom Ford Lip Color Matte formula, and am just thrilled that aside from Black Dahlia and First Time that these are now part of the core line. I have never tried a better matte formula!

  1. Ahh pretty pretty pretty :) I like how you can actually personalize the set, although I wish TF would give a small discount on it. I mean, there always is when you buy something in bulk, right? LOL

    1. I agree, being able to personalize the set is really wonderful, but I do wish that Neiman Marcus did it online as well. I think that the sets at Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's aren't able to be personalized, and I don't know about Bergdorf Goodman, but you definitely can at the NM in Beverly Hills. I wish that TF offered a special deal on the sets, but I think the box itself is the bonus.

    2. give me the bulk discount. i can find my own pretty box. i actually dislike it when it comes packaged in a beautiful box. it creates conflict inside our peaceful home. war ensues between my pack rat tendencies and my boyfriend's minimalist preferences. if you're going to give me a nice box, design it so it fits more than just your products so it can be more functional! otherwise, you're most likely contributing to landfill!

      wow sorry, rant over. i'm researching bathroom remodels and i think the box comment triggered some storage planning stress :P

    3. p.s. another vote for First Time. it's beautiful and lust worthy

    4. I know what you mean! Oh, bathroom remodeling is just so much fun to live through! We have one down and one to go! Are you planning to do it soon? I agree that First Time is a real stunner! got an email from Apple– my laptop is ready for pick up today! Fingers crossed nothing after the last backup wasn't lost!

    5. really? did you like your contractor enough to recommend him? any tips? this will be my first major remodel and i'm very scared! i'm just meeting contractors and taking bids but considering the holidays, i'm guessing nothing will start until jan.

      wohoo! laptop returning home. what was wrong with it? hopefully everything is intact and it was still under warranty!

    6. I acted as the general contractor and managed all of the subs. I definitely would not recommend doing this on your first remodel. We have done lots of remodeling, and among my husband's specialties is construction defect law. He has a lot of contractors that he knows and trusts, but most of them do really big projects instead of small residential stuff (I suspect that whenever we remodel our second bathroom that it will be too small a job for the people that he knows). I can ask him if he knows anyone who does small projects in the Pasadena area.

      The laptop is back– woohoo! It melted down while I was updating, and wouldn't charge or reboot.

    7. that'd be helpful! thanks!

      so did the stuff not backed up survive the trip to the genius bar?

    8. I checked with him and he said that his clients do large scale jobs instead of small residential.:( Nothing was lost on my computer!!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!

    1. I am such a huge fan of his lipsticks, and this formula certainly does not disappoint! The packaging is definitely quite distinctive. I haven't whipped it out in a restaurant, but I do in the car all of the time when I am sitting at a stop light– though I seriously doubt that anyone is noticing my hasty application!

  15. Truly a luxurious gift. Agreed it would be nice if you could personalize online for those of us who don't have access to a store. :-)

    1. Hi Kimmy, Sorry that I somehow missed this comment! It really is a very luxurious gift! It's nice that you can customize it in-store, but you and I both know that many people shop online either out of necessity or desire– so it would be so helpful if they could select the colors that they know that they would wear! :-)
