True Coral is another colour from the brights section of the range and it definitely lives up to its name. It is a vivid shade, yet very easy to wear. I can find a lot of corals too warm to look good on my pink undertoned skin, but somehow this works.

The texture is as good as the other shades I have, creamy, but not so much as to require a lip liner to keep it in place. These lipsticks are perfect to apply if you are in a hurry.
I think True Coral is one of those colour that will work on everyone. On a tanned, olive or even darker skin I think the contrast would look fabulous, and on my pale skin it looks good without having to resort to bronzer. Tom Ford clearly knows his stuff and wasn't exaggerating when he described his lipsticks as universal!

In the pictures, despite my best efforts, the colour is coming over more orange than it is in person, so do take that into account. I have also tried to focus more on showing you the luxurious white and gold packaging. A major difference I have found between this and other high end lipsticks is the weight. The Tom Ford lipsticks are noticeably a lot heavier than any others I have, this can be a positive or a negative depending on your viewpoint.
Although crazily expensive, the Tom Ford lipsticks are now my all time favourite, with By Terry's Rouge Terrybly a very close second. I cannot wait to see what Mr Ford brings us with the release of his full beauty range this September.
