Lipsticks are, undoubtedly, the bread and butter of the beauty world. Whether you’re just starting out with makeup or if you’re an avid beauty junkie, you’re bound to have a lipstick – or too many – in your makeup bag.
Coupled with the fact that there are just so many variations out there now (Matte! Sheer! Glossy!), it’s safe to say that we have our fair share of products to pick and choose from.
It’s impossible to have this lipstick conversation without bringing up Tom Ford, a brand ubiquitous for its classic, luxurious lipstick formulas. From the beautiful touches of gold that adorn each product, to the subtle and understated T.F initials stamped against its ornate packaging, everything about it screams opulence and class— as evidenced by the hefty price tag attached to each one.
Still, beautiful packaging aside, are these lipsticks really worth the hype and the money? Luckily, Daily Vanity is here to do the work for you. Here are 10 Tom Ford lipsticks that will give you way more bang for your buck:
1. Tom Ford Beauty Lip Colour Sheer in Paradiso
There’s nothing worse than the feeling of lip formulas sinking into dry, cracked lips— trust us, we’ve been there.
With our humid climate, it’s inevitable for moisture to seep right out of our lips, leaving us parched and flaky. Thankfully, the Tom Ford Sheer Lipsticks don’t seem to have that problem. Our hot pick? The shade Paradiso, a bright watermelon pink that gives a rich pop of colour all while moisturising and conditioning your lips.
Its smooth, rich texture makes it a dream to put on, and the standout white and gold packaging simply sweetens the deal. This one is definitely worth breaking the bank for.
The Tom Ford Beauty Lip Colour Sheer in Paradiso retails at SGD76 and is available at all Tom Ford counters and Sephora.
2. Tom Ford Beauty Ultra-Rich Lip Colour in Purple Noon
Want something with a little more oomph, and that will make people sit up and take notice? Then the Tom Ford Ultra-Rich Lipstick in Purple Noon is the one for you.
With faint hints of shimmer in a deep, rich berry shade, the overall effect is a beautiful, glossy look that will get everyone’s eyes on you. The formula is a little more creamy than the sheer ones, and it provides more coverage as well. Other than that, the product also has great lasting power— up to four hours without fading and budging. Sounds like a keeper, if you ask us!

3. Tom Ford Beauty Ultra-Rich Lip Colour in Temptation Waits
A nude lip shade is the equivalent of the little black dress in the fashion world — timeless, classy and suitable for every occasion. If you want one with a fun little twist, the Ultra-Rich Lipstick in the shade Temptation Waits is definitely the one for you.
This dark nude with faint gold shimmers is super flattering on a variety of skin tones, while the chocolatey shade will help create the illusion of a plumper, fuller pout that would make even the Kardashians envious.

4. Tom Ford Beauty Lip Contour Duo in Devil Inside
We think that the Tom Ford Lip Contour Duo gives you the best of both worlds. Uncap the top and you’ll get a swivel pencil tipped lip shaper, whereas uncapping the bottom reveals a full coverage lipstick!
The lip shaper has a pigmented, shimmer-infused formula, and is a few shades lighter than the paired lipstick. The lipstick, on the other hand, has a creamy, luscious feel to it, and is a little glossy too. When used in conjunction with each other, it gives a brilliant, HD look that lasts for hours after application.
The shade Devil Inside is a head-turning bright vermillion that helps illuminate your face.

If you’re looking for something classic but with an updated twist, look no further than this fetching shade of fuchsia. This bold hue instantly perks up your complexion and makes a statement with just one swipe, making it ideal for days when you just want to stand out from the crowd.
