Tory Burch Lipstick in Swizzle Review + Swatches

As a lover of all things beautiful and ornate, I like it when brands pay attention to detail, whether it's just a keychain or a gown. Really, I don't mind paying a lot just to be surrounded by beautiful things because these things inspire me in so many ways, but of course, the product itself has to be good as well for me to become a repeat buyer! 

Tory Burch's lipstick is all that. I won't lie, the first time I held these lipsticks, I had the impression that one would just pay for its beautiful packaging, but the moment I tried it, I thought otherwise! This lipstick is one of nicest, sheer lippies around, from the packaging down to the product!


A nostalgic offering from Tory Burch, this 12-piece lipstick collection features personalized shades that represent some of the important memories of Tory Burch. Swizzle is inspired by the namesake cocktail with a red-plum hue, a favorite drink of Tory Burch's family. These sheer lipsticks have a lightweight, moisturizing formula and are laced with a grapefruit-floral fragrance, the signature scent of Tory Burch EDT.

More about this product plus the swatch after the cut!

Packaging reminds me so much of Tory Burch's boutiques and I love how all of her products are aligned with each other. That, plus it's such a standout. Tory Burch Beauty, by the way, is made with Estēe Lauder so that explains why it looks so elegant and precious!


Swizzle is a deep rose hue with a plum undertone and micro silver shimmer. It has a slightly watery, hydrating, and super lightweight consistency and even if you apply a thin layer, you will still get a true color payoff. Texture is very smooth and it tames dryness all day. You can build up the color on your lips, but it will persist to look sheer and easy, which is perfect for any everyday look. The scent on this one is a little strong though and kinda' leaves a taste in the mouth, but it goes away after a few minutes--the scent is quite nice, but I wish that they'd do something about the taste though-I can tolerate it, but not everyone will!

I think what makes this lipstick special is that despite its sheerness, it still colors my lips decently and just the way I want it, and staying power is quite good for a sheer lipstick as it fades gradually. The nude shades of this collection are quite nice too: they leave the lips looking dewy and nude yet not washed out, but I'm not a big fan of nudes so I'd recommend that you try the bolder colors such as Swizzle. By the way, Swizzle is one unique rose shade!

The only con I could think about this collection is it does not offer a diverse range of finishes and I wish that next time, I'll see mattes in the range. If you love anything sheer and anything precious, Tory Burch lipsticks will surely suit your taste. I also think it's a much affordable counterpart to Guerlain's sheer lipsticks.

6 Lovely Thoughts

  1. Loving the swatches I'm seeing of Tory Burch lipsticks. This one in particular really suits you, a great mlbb.

  2. It's perfect for everyday makeup! :)

  3. Wow! Very nice... looks good on you! Love the color :)

  4. I super love the shade. It's red, but not too red, yet not too light as well. I like the watery look of it, it looks like it's always fresh. I agree with you, I hope they release matte lipsticks as well. And I hope they'll release more colors as well. :) Btw, what's the taste like?

  5. The shade compliments your skin tone... Look good on you!!!

  6. "I think what makes this lipstick special is that despite its sheerness, it still colors my lips decently and just the way I want it, and staying power is quite good for a sheer lipstick as it fades gradually."

    This is what I like about Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope. Maybe if Tory Burch was a little less shiny, I'd add to my wishlist.
