Dupe Alert: Drugstore Dupe of Tom Ford Sable Smoke Lipstick

January 21, 2015

Sable Smoke Dupe

I come to you with another great dupe of a well loved lipstick, which also happens to be really expensive. Tom Ford lipsticks are known to be quite luxurious, hydrating, beautiful, opaque, and also expensive. Yet, crazy me, I still had to own one of them to see what the raves are all about. My mom and I were strolling through Target and she wanted to try Sonia Kashuk lipsticks and we picked up three. Let me tell you, the colour pay off is beautiful, they are so creamy and buttery, the finish is satin, they have SPF, and the best thing about them is that they are $9.99 prices may vary. When I got home I started swatching the lipsticks on my hands and lips and one of them looked totally familiar, and yes, yes, it is Sable Smoke by Tom Ford, which retails for $60 at Holt Renfrew (prices may vary). The two lipstick’s application on the lips are so very similar in feel, texture, and colour pay off. The Tom Ford deposits more colour on your lips and Sonia Kashuk is a bit more sheer compared to the Tom Ford but it is still pigmented. The packaging of Sonia Kashuk is nice and sleek, reminds me of Nars Packaging. I love the variation of the nudes that I picked up, which means they can suit so many different complexions. She provides nudes with a pink, peachy, and brown undertones. They feel like a lip balm on your lips. I hope you enjoyed this amazing dupe, well, in my opinion at least. Also Tom Ford seems to smell like an old lipstick to me, and that happened in the first bullet I got and I exchanged it and it still does smell like old lipstick, but it was a lot stronger in the first one. The Sonia Kashuk ones have such a great subtle smell to them. The smell of beautiful lipstick that is. The shade that is a DUPE for Tom Ford Sable Smoke is Pink Buff 94. Sonia Kashuk is exclusive to Target.

    Hi, I live in Brazil and unfortunately we dont have Sonia Kashuk available around here. Can you share any other dupe, so perfect as this SK one, for the spectacular (and expensive) TF Sable Smoke? Thanks!

    Great Blog and beautiful lips, Mira! What’s your opinion about the color Barely Nude, by SK?. To me, from my monitor, the first swatch on your hand seems more similar to Sable Smoke by TF…
