Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick Gustavo

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick Gustavo is described as a highly pearlized rich mocha with purple pearl. Ok… Who is writing these descriptions? This shade does not appear to be “highly pearlized” nor can I detect any “purple pearl”. Maybe I need my eyes checked? On the upside, “Gustavo” is a beautiful rich mocha. I love this shade. It feels comfortable on my lips and builds easily from medium to almost full opacity. It’s worth checking out! Just don’t let the shade description get you over excited. See a swatch after the jump!

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick Stavros

It feels lightweight and pleasantly slick on my lips. This shade reminds me of a high end version of the independent makeup brand Melt Cosmetics’ matte grey lipstick in “Space Cake”. If you’re looking to add something special and unusual to your collection, I highly recommend “Stavros”. See a swatch after the jump!

I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. See a swatch after the jump.
