I’ve always been a huge Tory Burch fan, especially when it comes to their bags and shoes as seen in my previous posts. When I learned about Tory Burch releasing a makeup line, obviously, I couldn’t contain my excitement- much more when it was released here in the Philippines. Recently, they launched a dozen of flattering shades of the Tory Burch Lip Color Collection.
Before I get into the details of Tory Burch lipsticks, here are some photos of the makeup collection and Tory Burch fragrance.

They also have the solid perfume pendant necklace. Oooh, that would be a perfect statement piece!!! 😀
Now, let’s talk about the lip colors. This new collection builds on the successful launch of Tory’s signature pinky-nude lip color – “Pas du Tout.” Tory Burch created 12 unique shades that flatter all skin tones- from tomboy neutrals to feminine pinks and bold brights.
Swizzle, Tomboy, Saucy, Smack Dab are only some of the names of the lippies. Are you wondering where Tory got these names? Many of the shades in the Lip Color Collection have names inspired by Tory’s personal history—from old-fashioned phrases and family nicknames to superstitious sayings. The name of Tory’s signature shade – “Pas du Tout” – comes from a phrase often said by her father, Buddy. It’s part of the original French version of the classic “she loves me, she loves me not” daisy-petal-pulling game. “Swizzle,” a reddened plum with silver shimmer, refers to an old-fashioned gentleman’s drink that is a family favorite. “Tomboy,” a pinky bronze, is a nod to Tory’s childhood identity—and an aesthetic that informs her design sensibility.
Aside from the shades of the lipsticks, one more thing that would definitely catch anyone’s attention is the lipstick’s casing. The gold and orange fretwork spells L-U-X-U-R-Y. It’s an accessory in itself. I wouldn’t mind retouching my lipstick in front of my girlfriends. Haha! 😀
I have with me Saucy, a sheer pink shade.
Here are some swatches of Saucy. On the leftmost is just one layer. You’ll notice how sheer the lip color is. The swatch in the middle is two layers, while the last is about five layers.
Tory Burch lip colors are all sheer. This may be a con to others who want pigmented lipsticks. Tory Burch Lip Colors are perfect for those who are not so comfortable wearing dark or bright colored lipsticks. They’re also great day to night lip colors since you can easily layer their lipsticks to give a darker shade. The lippies are also creamy and very smooth to apply. I tried wearing Saucy the entire day and it didn’t dry up my lips! The nice sheen even made my lips looked healthy and moisturized. Oh, and did I mention that each lipstick is subtly scented with the notes from the Tory Burch fragrance – cassis, grapefruit and mandarin? 😉
Here I am wearing Tory Burch Lipstick in Saucy. Sorry, these are my “bareface” photos. Literally, I just woke up except that I applied this lipstick on for review purposes. Hehe! I like how Saucy looks natural with just a subtle hint of pink, making my lips appear healthy. 😀
