Tom Ford Casablanca Lip Color Is So Mauve on Me!

Tom Ford Casablanca FOTD

Some of you girls were way more excited about Tom Ford Casablanca Lip Color when I showed you Cherry Lush. Well, here it is!

Tom Ford Casablanca looks like a plummy rose in the bullet (and for the most part, in the swatch as well). The texture is creamy, which reminds me of True Coral. However, it is mildly moisturizing during the 5 hours of wear time!

I am really surprised about how much plum (even mauve) my skin tone draws out of this shade, I can hardly recognize the color once it gets onto my lips, because it pulls so much more mauve! I am not too sure if it’s the olive in my skin tone, my natural lip color, or maybe both, but lo and behold:

I swear it’s one layer of Tom Ford Casablanca and nothing else!

Bottom line: Tom Ford Casablanca Lip Color is definitely one of the Tom Ford Lip Colors that have a superior texture. It is pigmented, long-lasting, and moisturizing. I can’t quite figure out what it is about my coloring that pulls so much mauve out, but I can’t wait to see it on other people!

Is this the color you were hoping for, or did you have something else in mind when you saw the lipstick? Do bear in mind it will most probably look different on you though!

      Thanks so much, Diana! It’s a shade that I don’t have a lot!

    mauve looks amazing on you! now I want it too:))

      Haha do check it out, Daria! The formula is good!

  • Icaria

    Oh now that is surprising but it’s quite lovely on you. I guess I would probably have similar results since my lips are more on the pigmented side. I honestly was hoping for it to be a tiny bit more neutral but it’s still a super pretty color.

      Thanks so much, Helene! You should try it for yourself! I wonder if there is a bit of mauve/purple in my natural lip color. Maybe that’s why it turns mauve on me!

    THIS HAPPENS TO ME. I don’t know why either, something about my natural lip color I guess, but so many not-mauve lipsticks go mauve-y purple-y on me. Which I personally don’t usually like, or maybe I’m just not used to myself in those colors, I always feel like I look a bit dead. But I quite like it on you, looks very polished

      OOO good to know I’m not alone! I should show you my nude lips some day. Maybe there is a bit of mauve/purple in them and that’s why? ;)

    wow the color really looked more mauve once applied than in the tube/swatched!! I tend to like mauve shades but still pinks :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I know! I don’t think I own any other mauve to be honest. Maybe I should start exploring them!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Wow what a difference! Interesting! I like it more mauve than how it looks swatched though! You look great in this shade! You should get more! :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Tracy! I don’t own a lot of mauves now come to think of it!

  • Patricia Gomes

    I love that color! Curious enough, on my lips it’s not quite so mauve:

      Thanks for sharing, Patricia! I think it has a lot to do with the skin tone as well as the natural lip color!

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    holy cow, it does look really different on your lips! That’s fun!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It’s shocking how different it looks on!

  • http://MyLuciteDreams.com/ MyLuciteDreams

    It does appear far more plum-toned. Still it’s a gorgeous shade on you! A bit unexpected but a great surprise!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Taylor! I remember trying it on and thinking:” wait a minute…”

  • http://nothingspaces.com Carina

    Whoa, it does look different! Still pretty, though. :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Carina! It was a big surprise!

  • VickyM

    I think this lip color suits you it looks very different, but not in a bad way. The way it shifted color on your lips is very fun, I would have been amused in your place. :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Vicky! I am very amused. And surprised! Sometimes I put something on and go:” wait a second, but this is NOT what I thought it would be???”

  • http://www.glambunctious.com/ Kristen / Glambunctious

    Wow! That is so crazy how purplish this pulls on you! It’s still stunning though! I think you look adorable with a mauve pout!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I know, right? I don’t think I own anything else that is mauve, to be honest! Thanks, Kristen <3

    Sunny, it looks mauve on me as well. I think it’s the beauty of this shade whereby you just get a surprise after putting it on. :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Ruby, glad to hear I’m not the only one! This is so interesting!

  • ValleyDoll

    Such a lovely shade ! Looks really great on you. I don’t think I can pull off a shade like that.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Eva! It’s interesting. I don’t think I own any other mauve now come to think of it!

  • http://www.nailsandcupcakes.com/ Isabelle

    This does look completely different on you than on me! Very interesting. Looks great on you either way :)
