Tom Ford 47 Cary Lip Color Review

Hello everyone,

This review will be on the Tom Ford Lips and Boys collection lipstick in the “47 Cary.”
Tom Ford Cary Lip Color

Product Description:
Tom Ford Lip Color is filled with rare and exotic ingredients including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil to create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated color pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.

Ingredients Tom Ford Lip Color

Since these are mini lipsticks, they retail for $35 each.

My Experience with Tom Ford 47 Cary Lip Color:

Packaging:  Such a gorgeous yet sophisticated lipstick tube which scream luxury. The lipstick is housed in a rectangular tube with shiny black and gold accents with TF embossed on the top of the cap and on the lipstick itself. The only complaint I have is that all the lipsticks from this range look exactly the same, hence if you want to grab a certain color, you would have to read the label sticker underneath each lipstick.

Texture and Application:  This lipstick is very smooth and very creamy. It has a slip to it which feels like gliding satin silk across your lips. Even with a couple of layers it does not feel heavy on the lips. I do find the application very easy and precise with the shape of the bullet.

Shade and Finish:  The shade “Cary” is the perfect everyday MLBB shade. I swear I own this shade in every range of lipstick that I own across every brand, I just can’t have enough of this shade. This shade is a perfect medium pink with mauve plum undertone. This shade complements every makeup look and I gravitate towards this shade every time I can’t makeup my mind what to wear. This shade is a staple in my purse. It has a cream sheen finish on the lips.

Pigmentation and Feel on lips:  Pigmentation is great. It goes fully opaque in 2-3 swipes. This lipstick made my lips feel very comfortable. It was moderately hydrating and felt like a lip balm with its silky texture when I rub my lips together. It does not cling to or accentuate dry patches on my lips nor does it sink into fine lines.
Swatch on hands

Staying Power:  Staying power is good, not super impressive. It stays on my lips for 4-5 hours with light snacks and drinks, with slight fading. It will not survive a full meal and will need reapplication.

Overall, these Tom Ford lipsticks are getting a lot of love from me 😛 Though I very much enjoy this shade “Cary,” I don’t find the shade to be unique. It is easily dupeable and I honestly own about 10 other lipsticks like this in my collection. Though the amazing quality of Tom Ford lipsticks cannot be beaten with the amazing creamy, silky, smooth texture and feel, the wear time is not very impressive. Keeping all this in mind, I still think this it is worth the splurge and I will recommend this lipstick to all of you.

Pros of Tom Ford 47 Cary Lip Color:

  • Classy packaging.

Cons of Tom Ford 47 Cary Lip Color:

  • Being a creamy lipstick, it does transfer, but I don’t mind that.
