Tory Burch had me at the packaging with the Divine Bronzer, Blush, Highlighter Palette… it was only a matter of time before one or two of the lipsticks arrived at my door. While it was hard not to order all 12 shades I finally settled on the two that I thought I’d like the most – Just Like Heaven and Call Me.
What Nordstrom says about Tory Burch Lip Color:
Tory Burch loves color! Here, the designer offers 12 distinctive shades of rich lip color, each designed to flatter a variety of skin tones. Extending from Tory’s original signature lip color, Pas du Tout, the collection ranges from tomboy neutrals to feminine pinks and bold brights. Subtly scented with notes of cassis, grapefruit and mandarin from the Tory Burch fragrance, this modern formula perfectly balances sheer yet vivid color, rich texture and a weightless finish. Encased in gold-and-orange fretwork, it’s a super-chic accessory in itself.
The packaging is similar to that of the fragrance and blush, but with more orange involved. While slightly awkward to hold it’s beautiful to look at. Though they’re lighter than I expected it’s safe to say that you won’t find a lipstick casing design quite like this.
I chose Just Like Heaven (a sheer, pinky mauve lustre) and Call Me (a sheer raisin lustre) because I always love the look of a bold lip color in a pink and a burgundy. Though my every day makeup look doesn’t usually call for such vibrance, I still get that pull to wear them. The Tory Burch Lip Colors are just sheer enough that they show some color, but you can still rock them during the day if you’re headed to work, out to lunch or just hanging out.
The formula is smooth and feels moisturizing, but the shades do need reapplied within a few hours. The Tory Burch emblem on the end of the lipstick starts to disappear even after the first use, which also made me sad. I realize it wouldn’t be very sturdy if that emblem went the whole way through, but it really makes the lipstick look haute. Once it’s gone it’s just a sheer lippie.
