Hello everyone! Welcome to my first ever post under LIP FILED! 🙂
So what exactly is LIP FILED? Well, I wanted to review the lip products that I have as well as number them to monitor my stash. And this is just the first of many. 😀 I still haven’t counted the lip stuff that I currently have so let’s get through them one by one.
First up is this gorgeous lip color from Tory Burch Beauty. Can I just say that I really, really love Tory Burch‘s packaging? That fretwork, that gold and orange combination, I swear it took me a while before I was able to break the logo that’s embedded onto the lip product. I just couldn’t. It was too pretty.
But time has passed and Scoundrel has been mocking me, begging me to be used so here we are. Finally.
Described as a “classic scarlet red“, what drew me to get the color was that it was such a lovely red with just the right amount of pink. I also asked Elaine, the MUA at the Tory Burch Launch, on which shade would suit me best and she pointed me to this.
I know I cannot rave enough about the packaging and the color, but the ultimate question is HOW DOES SCOUNDREL PERFORM?
I’ve been using it non-stop since I started the other day and it certainly lives up to my expectations. Not to mention the P1,650 price point. Scoundrel is definitely one of the more pigmented ones in the collection and even though it doesn’t swatch completely opaque, this baby does not go on sheer.
While you would want to build it up to get a deeper color, Scoundrel certainly looks pretty enough with just a swipe or two.
However, I would definitely recommend that you use a lip brush when applying as it tends to feather around the edges. This consistently happened to me no matter how much I tried to get the shape perfect. It doesn’t really help also that when you try to clean it up a bit with your finger, the red stains the skin around your lips a bit. Careful and precise application is a must!
In terms of longevity, Scoundrel sets down into a nice lightweight feel with color that lasts up to four hours plus provided you didn’t drink or eat. When you do though, the color leaves a nice stain that can be filled up easily by patting the remaining color in. Or just reapply to get that bold color again.
While I don’t think it moisturized my lips, Tory Burch Lip Color definitely did not dry out them out. The product just sits quite comfortably on my lips, like it has melted into it. Overall, Scoundrel is a pretty easy shade to wear if application is well taken care of.
Because of this, I give the LIP FILED 001: Tory Burch Lip Color in Scoundrel a rating of 4.5/5. The sheer beauty of the Lip Color and its packaging compensates for the slight demand for a careful application.
If you really want a super polished lip, use a lip liner to make the most out of Scoundrel as that would make the color pop out even more. I have tried using a red liner under it and the effect was just lovely. The photo above though shows just Scoundrel applied straight from the tube. 🙂
Till the next LIP FILED!

I can’t believe that costs just as much as a NARS lippie. It’s really a beautiful shade!
I was also shocked to know that it was the same price as Chanel. I thought it would be higher as the lip colors look really luxe 😍
I love the packaging, looks so Tory Burch! 🙂 Sadly, I’m not at all interested in the lipsticks, I don’t know why. I think ‘cos no shade called out to me. NARS lipsticks, on the other hand, patay! Haha.
Scoundrel looks sizzling on you, Katsy!
Thanks Shari! 😀 I’m really into reds right now which is probably why the NARS Audacious lipsticks I tried didn’t appeal to me much. I totally ignored the reds and just concentrated on the nudes and the corals hence no purchase. LOL. Might have been my way of avoiding getting anything. Will definitely be back though to try Lana! Vivien, Anita, and Anna were all out of stock when I visited.
I am just amazed at the price. Its crazy! Hahahaha …. then again I haven’t really been into the beauty blogging thing for long … I am just starting so perhaps I will get used to it.
Loved the review. It told me everything I needed to know about the lippie.
Hehehe wait for the 3k per lipstick posts…. Which will probably be a while still. 😀
Thanks for visiting my blog Ms. Kathy! 🙂
I’d buy this purely for the packaging, lol! Orange and gold are two of my favorite colors = I’m sold. I also have a penchant for red lipstick so maybe when I finally have the budget, I’d get myself a bullet! The color looks great on you btw 🙂
Hi Erika! To be honest I bought it also because of the packaging. 😀 Plus the red went so well with the orange and gold so how could I say no? But I’m really happy with the purchase as it makes for such pretty eye candy in my purse as well as on my lips. I’m super in love with how it feels after it has set. 🙂
So gorgeous on you! Looks warmer than I thought it would swatch though. 🙂
Thank you Nikki! 🙂 It’s a red tinged with pink (crazy color description LOL) on me plus I think I have a warm skintone so maybe the yellow in my skin made it warmer? 😀
I was hoping it’s at least pigmented 🙁
I think this solidifies my theory that luxury lipsticks places comfort over everything else.
Hi Rae! 🙂 I think this shade was one of, if not the most pigmented out of all the 12.
I have to agree with your theory of comfort over everything else when it comes to luxury lipsticks. I personally like that they’re comfortable at least since we have to pay such a high price. For such an expense, I would want to be able to wear them as much as possible.
i honestly thought this was going to be more expensive and a little bit more maroon-ish (cause of the buxom red lipstick shade that i like, it has the same exact name). either way the shade looks good on you katsy! and that packaging and emboss details sooo luxy!
ps. love the blog layout and pics 🙂
Thanks so much Shayne! That’s such a compliment coming from you. I’ve been following your blog and really love your layout and pics! 😀 I have the same Zoeva brush set as yours and I haven’t even started taking proper photos as they’re just sooo many. LOL.
I also thought that the Tory Burch lipsticks would be around 2k like Guerlain so when I found out they were P1650….. Well, here we are. 🙂
