Tom Ford Lip Color: Spanish Pink 01

Tom Ford’s Spanish Pink 01 Lip Color is a richly pigmented light peachy-pink with a very slight hint of sparkle. On my lips it pulls more peachy than pink and the shimmer is not detectable. The lipstick goes on very smoothly blending naturally with your lips with full coverage. There is a soft delicious vanilla scent. Initially I was worried it would be too pale but this one has enough color to not wash me out. (For skintone reference, right now I’m Chanel Beige 30 in Vitalumiere Aqua and testing out the new Beige 30 Perfection Lumiere and Dolce & Gabbana’s Creamy Foundation in #144 Bronze.) Spanish Pink was previously featured and swatched with a number of other shades from Tom Ford earlier this month here (shown next to Pink Dusk, Sable Smoke, Nude Vanille etc.). Below are a few more close-ups and swatches.

Per request, here are a few comparisons. Tom Ford’s Spanish Pink is a peachy-pink hybrid. Burberry’s Delicate Rose is a pink version. Burberry Cameo is very similar but lighter, sheerer with slightly less pink. Chanel Chintz is the most coral in undertone.

Overall I love this color. It’s light, brightening, easy to wear and versatile. Lasting power of Tom Ford Lipsticks is a bit better than the average lipstick in my experience. The pigment is amazing, texture is to die for, and the scent is absolutely delicious. Are these really worth $48? This is a tough one. I’m inclined to say no lipstick is worth more than $30 even though many have reached the $32 level, prices are still increasing and I’ve been sucked into the hype. The formula of the Tom Ford is amazing and the lipsticks almost melt into the lip so I feel the purchase was worthwhile, but I’m still grumbling at the cost.

*Update* Also check it out on Tali at The Gloss Goss (so happy she’s back!!).

    spanish pink is so beautiful – the colour looks like it was 'made for your lips'. so relieved about your thoughts on the price point. over in australia TF lipsticks retail for $70 in comparison to chanel lipsticks which retail for around $50. nevertheless it is a beautiful lipstick.

    What a great name for a lipstick shade! But I have to admit I let out an "OMG" when I saw the cost. I knew TF was expensive, but I didn't know the lipsticks were that expensive.

    The warm peachy pink looks so brightening and natural on your lips. I love wearable colors like this. The price tag is steep, but maybe one day…

    This shade is so beautiful, and thanks for the comparison swatches, they are all equally gorgeous. Can't wait to get my hands on Tom ford and Burberry! I'm sure I will come back from the states with 20 lipsticks that look exactly the same on me haha..

    This lipstick is amazing on you, such a beautiful color. It almost makes me want to spend the $48, almost! I noticed at the top of the post you are testing the new Chanel and the D&G foundation. I am very anxious to see what you think of these, as my skin is identical in color in sensitivity to yours. I want to buy the new Chanel one, but am holding out to try the new Armani foundation in Mid-October. Can't wait to read your posts on all these!

    This is so beautiful on you. And you know how we love the same colors. I just checked the Nordstrom website, (they're the only ones who ship to AK..oh wait, maybe Saks still does), anyway, THEY HAVE TOM FORD!!! I'm getting this.
