Tom Ford Spring 2014 Lip Color Sheer 06 Firecracker: Review, Swatch, FOTD

|   affiliate   |

Who's ready for spring? I am! While my definition of Hawaii cold weather is laughable compared to  you guys battling several inches of snow, believe me when I say that at low 50s, my arse is freezin' crazy! 

Who's excited for spring makeup launches? I am! While I don't buy every collection there is, you probably know by now that I tend to gravitate towards lippies more than anything.

Who's up for Tom Ford Spring 2014 Color Collection? I am and a gazillion more women prancin' and swatchin' at the makeup counter! Okay prancing is OA, and anyone who does that while swatching is one epic nutcase, haha!

Available in eight drool-worthy shades, the Lip Color Sheer line features neutrals to brights that hydrate the lips, thanks to Vitamins C & E and shea butter. As you can see from the photo, it is housed in white and gold case.

I purchased 06 Firecracker online ($49, Net wt .1 oz/ 3g, Nordstrom), relying on sheer gut-feel that I will like it regardless. 

Bright, bold, red, orange. Swooned. 





Point-blank, Tom Ford Lip Color Sheer is one false claim or marketing oversight you will absolutely forgive and love! Why? there is nothing sheer about Firecracker, it is a bright red orange lipstick which commands attention from afar. It is opaque in two passes, very hydrating, has impressive wear time, and it stains the lips (after a greasy meal. Read: Wendy's cheeseburger and fries, yeah I'm that specific, haha!).

Need proof? let this lipstick-obssessed woman convince you....

  2. Love that packaging! You're right, there's nothing sheer about that lippie! I couldn't pull off that color, but I'm looking forward to seeing the other ones in the collection, if they're all that bright!

    1. Hi Nidia. I'm intrigued myself. I purposely didn't pick out the rest of the shade because this one really stood out. Last time I checked, Temptalia has full swatches of this line.
