Tom Ford really has me wrapped around his little expensive fingers with his Summer 2015 collection. I found it so hard to resist this little ivory and gold lush packaging.
And I caved in of course:) How beautiful is this!
I didn’t want to use the lipstick a few good days. It hurts every single use as I see the logo gets worn away. It’s just too darn beautiful!
Paradiso is a re-promote from Tom Ford Summer 2014 and is one of the four shades released in the Summer 2015 collection.
What Tom Ford says about his Lip Sheers:
LIP COLOR SHEER DELIVERS A LUSTROUS SHEEN OF COLOR THAT COMPLIMENTS SUN-KISSED, SUMMER SKIN.
A DECADENT MIX OF VITAMINS C AND E AND SHEA BUTTER HELPS LAVISH THE LIPS WITH SATURATED MOISTURE. THE DISTINCT, BEVELED LIP COLOR SHEER BULLET IS PACKAGED IN A RETRO-CHIC, IVORY- AND GOLD-COLORED TOM FORD CASE.
Paradiso Lip Sheer is a watermelon pink with a hint of coral and a soft, luminous sheen. It is actually not that sheer! I can get a quite opaque coverage with 2 swipes. It is a cheerful colour and very spring-appropriate. It is bright but not too bright for a day look.
Paradiso feels creamy and light on my lips. It glides on with ease and is quite hydrating. Paradiso lasts around 4 hours on my lips without eating and leaves a slight stain after. I have read that there is a vanilla scent but I really can’t detect it, not even a hint on my lips.
As like any other light, sheer lip sticks, Paradiso does accentuate the dry flakes on my lips so I do have to prep my lips with a scrub.
Below are the swatches of 2 swipes and 4 swipes of Paradiso:
You probably can find dupes for it right!
Verdict: I love Tom Ford Paradiso Lip Sheer for its packaging and the hydrating feel of a lip balm but it did not wow me. It doesn’t feel outstanding on my lips and doesn’t leave me lusting for more from the range.
Here’s a selfie of me taken using an iPhone. The vibrancy and brightness of Paradiso has not been captured fully.
