Tom Ford: Velvet Cherry (08) Lipstick

Tuesday, October 1, 2019 Philippines


A few months ago, I accompanied my boyfriend and his family for the orientation of his sister at Manila. While waiting for the orientation to be done, Redgie and I (together with his mother) went to Mall of Asia to go around while waiting. 

When we passed by Tom Ford's store, I was able to mention to Redgie that it is one of the brands that I always wanted to buy but never tried a brand new (my first Tom Ford lipstick is preloved and almost near expiry) because it is quite expensive. 

I got surprised when Redgie insisted that he buy me one. It is rare that he offers gift or something to buy for me. That is also his reminder to let him buy me one. 

I made a lot of swatches so that I could choose wisely. The attendant at Tom Ford helped me pick one by suggesting that I should get a shade that I rarely own. I realized that most of my lipsticks are natural colors. That is why I picked this red lipstick!

With this history of my first Tom Ford lipstick, let us now make a review about it. 

Brand: Tom Ford

Type: Semi-Matte

Shade: Velvet Cherry

Weight: 3g



For a semi-matte lipstick, it feels moisturizing to my lips. 

The thing I love about luxury brands is how chic their packaging usually is and Tom Ford's gold classic packaging did not disappoint me at all. Next, the color pigment is usually great. Like for this shade, it is a mute reddish shade lipstick that looks translucent when worn. It does not shout the redness of the color, making it look more natural to skin. 

The formula of the lipstick is not warm and it is comfortable to wear. The lipstick lasts long up to six hours but can be fully removed when eating with heavy meals. It leaves an uneven stain mostly on my lip lines after it was removed. The lipstick did not accentuated my lip lines or the dry patches of my lips. It also made my complexion looked whiter when used. 

Others suggests that this lipstick looks like MAC Diva. 

It is just funny of me that I do not want to use it because I will be sad once the TF engraved on the lipstick will be smoothed out upon continued usage. Still, I have to use it eventually specially on special occasions. 


It transfers minimally. 

It is really expensive for a lipstick. 


Buy again? 100%

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

Price: 2,820php

Where to buy? Tom Ford Store at Mall of Asia, Available online through Rustan's store.
