Will lip lacquers ever be the same? It’ll be hard to compete with the Tom Ford’s Extreme Collection. The new Extreme collection from Tom Ford includes eyeshadow, mascara, and a new liquid lipstick. Moreover, the Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Extreme is new, and it is fresh off the runway. First, it includes eight new shades. Also, each shade is a futuristic metallic. However, what makes this lipstick a must have is the lipsticks are in metallic. In addition, the chrome shades have a velvet matte finish. Therefore, the Extremes are edgy! Chrome is the star of the extreme collection. According to Tom Ford, chrome represents the modern Tom Ford Look…… Daring and Futuristic!
Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Extreme Packaging
The Lip Lacquer Extreme stays true to Tom Ford’s futuristic vision. The chrome – toned boxes package the extreme product. Additionally, the lip lacquer tubes are also in the signature chrome color.
Also, around the bottom of the brushed chrome tube, there is a clear window. I love that the strip is clear because the shade of the lacquer peaks through. As a result, it is easy to find your shade, especially if you are as messy with your makeup as I am! Finally, the lip lacquers have a doe-foot applicator wand.
Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Extreme Formula
The formula is rich in pigments. The lip lacquer shades have concentrated colors. Also, the formula is creamy. More, the lip lacquer’s are long-wearing. Additionally, the colors are fade-resistant. Also important, the formula is lightweight. As a result, you can build layers of the lip lacquer for a perfect finish. In fact, because the formula is so lightweight, it may take a few layers to get an even finish. Above all, the formula glides on smoothly. Then, it dries down to a matte finish. Also, the formula includes a two-toned pearl micro-fine pigment.
Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Extreme Shades
First of all, there are eight shades in the Lip Lacquer Extreme Collection. However, at $55, I purchased five shades. The three shades that I didn’t purchase were Cameo, Loveless and Skintight.First, Cameo, a light coral, is the most natural, neutral-looking shade. Next, Loveless, a purple shade, has a red shift. Last, Skintight is a deep purple shade.
Love Shock (02) is a warm magenta pink shade with a matte velvet finish.
Panty Pink (03) is a bright neon pink shade with a matte velvet finish.
Torch (06), is a hot neon orange shade with a velvet matte finish.
Slicker (07) is a bright coral-orange shade with a velvet matte finish.
Hot Rod is a metallic rose shade with a matte velvet finish.
Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Extreme – Last But Not Least……..
The Lip Lacquer Extremes create a brushed-chrome-effect. In other words, your lips will look like liquid metal with a velvet matte finish. Most important, you need to build layers to achieve a perfect, even finish. Remember, you can customize your coverage. The best advice I can give you is to let each layer dry . And, when the layer is dry, you can apply another layer. For me, it usually looks good after two layers. Last, the lip lacquer is long-lasting. At first, it left my lips feeling a little dry. Other liquid lipsticks I’ve tried are from Lune and Aster, Pat McGrath, Ciate and Urban Decay. However, compared to the other long-wearing liquid lipsticks, my lips were not dry and chapped at the end of the day.
Do you love liquid lipsticks? I am not a huge fan because they usually dry out my lips. Tom Ford’s lip lacquer wasn’t too bad. However, I still prefer my good old creamy lipsticks. They may not last as long, but my lips feel great while I’m wearing them and when they wear off! How about you? Please let me know what you think in the comments below.
Also, son #3 is getting married this weekend. Our new bride is from out of town. So, the wedding is out of town. I am going to take my computer, just in case I get some down time in between makeup and hair. I am so excited, because my favorite person, makeup artist extraordinaire, is bringing a few artists to do our makeup. Of course, the girls (my daughter in laws) and I are first in line for our Meredith!
