Tom Ford Lip Color: Sable Smoke 14

October 6, 2011

Tom Ford Sable Smoke #14 ($48) is a creamy caramel honey nude. It’s officially now my perfect honey nude for my pigmented lips and medium-toned skin. Full smooth coverage with a non-drying formula and beautiful finish. Has a wonderful delicious vanilla scent. Doesn’t wash me out. Lasting power better than the average lipstick. Luxurious feel on the lips. Need I say more?

A few comparisons below. When swatched next to other peaches or nudes you can see how Sable Smoke is more of a caramel honey color. L to R: Tom Ford Sable Smoke, Edward Bess Pure Impulse, Burberry Romantic Rose, Chanel Cashmere Rouge Coco and D&G Almond.

Here is one more set of swatch comparisons (actual lipsticks aren’t shown, only swatches). Below, L to R is MAC Viva Glam Gaga, MAC Freckletone, MAC Gel, MAC Creme de Nude, YSL Rouge Volupte #2.

Bottom line: LOVE. I’m slowly working my way with reviews/swatches of all the new Tom Ford Lipsticks I purchased. To date, my favorite is Spanish Pink and Pink Dusk. You can see the full lineup here. The ones I purchased swatched here.

  • This is a beautiful shade! Looks like a perfectly warm nude. I'll definitely be looking into this next time I go by the Tom Ford counter.

  • That's perfect on you.

  • Oh, OH. That is GORGEOUS! Do all Tom Ford lipstick have a bit of shine to them?

  • Romzs – so far all the ones I have tried do have a bit of a natural shine to them. I haven't tried the darker colors or the brights though, so not sure if it applies to all the colors.

  • So amazing colour!

  • Looks luscious! The Tom Ford counter at Heathrow T3 Duty Free (and T5) is now open, so I will check it out!

  • Absolutely gorgeous on you. I can confirm that the brighter shades also have that glossy finish when first applied, although they do wear down to a more stain finish after a couple of hours.

  • Beautiful shades – can't wait to try one!

  • Oh wow that is gorgeous… I own Moroccan Rouge but I might have to get a nude tone too… It's one my my favorite lipsticks because it's so soft and moisturizing: even a darker color like Moroccan Rouge never chaps, cracks or dries, it only fades away leaving lips always soft.

  • I think this shade looks really, really great on you!

    I'm tempted, but the vanilla scent and $48 price tag are deterrents for me. Which of the other swatches do you find closest in color on your lips? I think I am pretty similar in coloring to you.
