Tom Ford Moisturecore Lipsticks for S/S 2016: Summertime is But a Season Away

tom ford moisturecore lip color swatches

It may not quite feel like summer yet, but the summer beauty, including the gorgeous Tom Ford Soleil Collection is on the cusp of launch, inviting us to radiantly bronze, glow and follow the sun into the warmer months ahead!  Consequently, I am excited to share an image-heavy, swatch-laden, first look at the innovative and alarmingly striking *Tom Ford Beauty Moisturecore Lip Color...summertime cannot arrive quickly enough, no?

Kindly scroll on for more details, a host of swatches and images of the TF Moisturecore Lip Color in action as well as the Bottom Line...

The Tom Ford Beauty Moisturecore Lip Color (also available for pre-order at BloomingdalesTom Ford and Bergdorf Goodman) is an inventive, dualistic combination of illuminating lip color (on the outside) and an ultra-hydrating pink core (on the inside) for a gorgeous wash of lustrous pigment that brilliantly resonates with warm breezes and sundrenched environs.  

Nourishing and succulent, this formula offers more pigmentation than the Tom Ford Lip Color Shine and more reflective shine than the traditional Tom Ford Lip Color, offering the quintessential balance between color and care.  After testing for the past few days, I can confirm that my perennially dry lips simply love this formula...it is smooth, comfortable and impressively long wearing (3-4 hours) especially for a lipstick in the semi-transparent, shiny category.  In terms of color payoff, a single layer doesn't offer complete opacity (instead imparting a relaxed, slightly sheer effect) but a second coat provides impressive coverage that still looks entirely natural.  

In summation, this is an effortless lip color option (no mirror needed for application on the go) for those seeking a softly-pigmented, shiny formula with lush, moisturizing properties...alluringly insouciant, indeed!

Two innovative formulas in one lip product. In the center, a liquid core infused with passion fruit oil provides luxurious moisture in a pink pop of color throughout every Moisturecore Lip Color shade. A luminous lip color encases the core, infused with an exotic blend of melon fruit extract, murumuru butter and plant-derived esters that help condition lips. Sprinkled with subtle golden pearl to complement bronzed, summer skin. Shades, ranging from sandy nude to rosy mauve, provide a soft veil of lightweight color that lasts for hours.


Remote private islands where summer lasts all year and one day seamlessly blends into the next inspire the TOM FORD Soleil Collection, a sensuous series of bronzers, highlighters and skincare designed to illuminate summer skin throughout the year. Innovative lip formulas in sheer- to full-coverage colors glide on lips with hydrating, nourishing benefits, while sheer cheek colors simmer with lit-from-within radiance.

Private blend Soleil Blanc intoxicates with seductive refinement and refreshing decadence. The solar floral amber unapologetically exudes the endless pursuit of sun and luxury that defines TOM FORD Soleil. Presented in ivory- and gold-colored TOM FORD Soleil packaging.

    1. Hi Anon!

      Thank you and thank you! I do love the TF Bronzer and use it often on rotation with the Gucci which is utterly beautiful...they both are high performing and easy to apply. I guess it all comes down to packaging preference ; )
