Tom Ford Clutch-Size Lip Balm L'Odissea: Review & Swatches

4:28:00 PM


I usually get excited for Tom Ford's Summer Soleil collection as it brings Lip Shimmers. This year there was no Lip Shimmers and I felt the need to grab one thing, so the Soleil Lip Balm in L'Odissea came home with me. Details per Nordstrom:

What it is: Tom Ford introduces limited-edition Soleil Lip Balm in a clutch size.

What it does: The smooth jelly-like formula packs a powerfully juicy tint with a high-gloss shine. The rounded bullet glides on conditioning moisture and radiance. It's available in shades to enhance your natural lip color.

Details per Tom Ford:

LIMITED EDITION SOLEIL LIP BALM DEBUTS IN THE FIRST-EVER CLUTCH SIZED TOM FORD SOLEIL PACKAGING. THE ROUNDED BULLET GLIDES ON CONDITIONING MOISTURE AND RADIANCE. THE SMOOTH JELLY LIKE FORMULA PACKS A JUICY TINT WITH HIGH GLOSS SHINE. SIX SUBTLE SHADES ENHANCE YOUR NATURAL LIP COLOR, FROM THE JUST BITTEN CORAL OF CRUISING TO THE SOFT FUCHSIA OF PURE SHORES AND PINK SORBET OF L'ODISSEA.

These are super cute, the same mini size as the Lips and Boys but with a white case. They retail for the same $36. These are tiny for what you get, as expected for Tom Ford-it's a luxe pricey line. L'Odissea is described as a pink sorbet. That's fairly accurate. It's a sheer light pink coral, no shimmer. These Clutch-Size Lip Balms have no discernible scent to me, no vanilla like the usual lipsticks.

It's a sheer, shiny finish with a hint of color. It's moisturizing and comfortable to wear. It does have a slight jelly like feel to it. It's not oily like Fresh Sugar Lip Balms for reference. It's one you have to reapply every hour or so. I like it, however it's so tiny for the price though. If there had been a shimmery pink nude or shimmery pink bronze I would probably forget all about the size to price ratio.
