Tom Ford Ultra Shine Lip Gloss Sahara Pink Review & Swatches

I have slowly started to develop a slight obsession with Tom Ford products and believe me they certainly hurt my bank balance!

Tom Ford screams luxury, hence the price tag! However, i was lured in by their gorgeous lipglosses. I ended up purchasing Sahara Pink, which is a neutral pink and looks so beautiful. It is much more opaque than some of the other glosses i own.

It feels non sticky and there is no shimmer or glitter in the gloss, which for me is suitable to wear during the day and the lasting power is decent enough.

I love the packaging, as it looks so elegant, however i am not too keen on the applicator. I would have preferred a doe foot applicator, because i have noticed with other glosses the brushes get so frayed that it doesn't apply product very well. I am hoping this brush won't do this!

The gloss has a similar scent to the rest of their Tom Ford line, particularly the lipsticks. The texture reminds me of the Bobbi Brown lipglosses but not as sticky. The gloss has a rich pigment and is about medium to full coverage on the lips. The finish is a high shine finish.

Overall i am loving this gloss, as i find it is such a wearable colour with or without lipstick. I find that £32 is a lot of money to spend on a lipgloss and yes if you want to splurge on a high end item, then i would recommend the glosses. The packaging is sleek and functional, but the only downside for me was the applicator.

I have to admit the quality and finish of the lipgloss is excellent, as is a lot of the Tom Ford line. I haven't been able to find exact dupes for this and i think that is why the Tom Ford colours are unique to them......well for the moment!

I didn't purchase these from a Tom Ford counter because i was really pressed for time. I did swatch them when i was in Selfridges to get an idea of the colour and texture and thought it would be easier to order them online.

Tom Ford glosses retail at £32 and can be purchased HERE

Do any of you have their glosses? What do you think of them?
