Tory Burch Lip Color in "Pas du Tout" | Review

Hello readers~! I've been MIA for awhile... I'm back~! I will reply to all the emails and questions you readers sent to me soon. P.S.: Please forgive me for the late response. :x

Today's post is going to be a review of the Tory Burch Lip Color lipstick.

The Tory Burch Lip Color range has 12 distinctive shades — each designed to flatter a variety of skin tones. Extending from the original signature lip color, Pas du Tout, the collection ranges from tomboy neutrals to feminine pinks and bold brights. This modern formula represents the ideal balance of sheer yet vivid color and rich texture with a weightless finish.

The lipstick is encased in a rectangular case with gold and orange fretwork design.

It looks like a super-chic accessory in itself. Absolutely gorgeous~! ♥

It is available in 12 shades. I got it in the original signature shade, Pas du Tout

Fun Fact: Pas du Tout — Tory's signature color named after the French version of "she loves me, she loves me not" (a game of pulling petals off a daisy).

The lipstick bullet has Tory Burch's logo embossed on it and has a faint, pleasant scent. The shade, Pas du Tout, comes in a universally flattering pinky-peachy nude tone with subtle beautiful gold shimmer.

Here are the swatches from 1 to 5 and 10 swipes, with and without flash:

As you can tell from the swatches, this shade is ultra sheer. It would take 3 or more swipes to make it noticeable on lips; however, it doesn't really give much color to the lips — I guess that's the only drawback.

On the positive side, it is a fairly moisturizing lipstick with a very creamy-balmy texture, that glides on smoothly and melts onto the lips. It doesn't highlight lip lines or dryness, and doesn't leave a sticky after-feel. I find the color has an average lasting power; some touch-ups are needed after eating and/or drinking.

Overall, I love it! I love how it enhances my lips color, keeping them looking natural, smooth and moist. Sometimes, I would top it off with a lip gloss for an extra sheen. I think it is a perfect ultra-sheer nude shade for everyday wear, and would look good on many skin tones.

If you have pigmented lips or if you are looking for a lipstick that gives an intense color, this shade isn't for you.
