Remember my first time using Tom Ford lipstick? I do.
My friend Genevieve surprised me for Christmas (have you noticed a theme here, that all my friends give me the most insanely nice gifts ever!?). And by surprised I mean I opened the most adorable Ted Baker bow makeup bag, (how did Gen even know that I had been wanting this? Seriously??) to find MY VERY OWN TOM FORD LIPSTICK.
Worth repeating: MY VERY OWN TOM FORD LIPSTICK.
I sat, I stared. I stared more. I did not allow myself to touch it until I took photos which was a true test of my willpower. These lipsticks are fancy. So fancy. Now, I think I’m a decent friend, but I would never call myself a Tom Ford Lipstick level friend. I’m messy with my suitcase on vacations and I talk too much at brunch.
I texted Gen right away some thank you jibberish in all caps, probably only further cementing that I didn’t deserve such an amazing gift, but she has The Manners and just said “you are very welcome!”
So here we go ladies and gents…Tom Ford Lip Color Shine in #06 Abandon:
I covered a lot of the review of packaging/texture/longevity before in THIS POST. But it is definitely worth repeating:
1. Packaging: So beautiful to pull out of your purse. It’s gold and chic and feels so solid in your hand.
2. Texture: This is so moisturizing, no need for a separate balm. It contains soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter, and chamomilla flower oil. Do I know what any of these things are? No. Do I like how they feel on my lips? Yes.
3. The “Shine” is obviously more, wait for it…shiny… than the “Matte” lipsticks. It however, does not read as a pre-teen mall rat glossy-glossy lipgloss look. It looks chic and adult and gosh darn it, it makes me want to leave the house and say “HELLO, WORLD!”
“Abandon” is a beautiful peach shade. It looks more orange swatched on my arm, but on my lips it’s the perfect nude-peach shade for me. If nude lipstick normally makes you look washed out, then Abandon might be the perfect shade for you. The peach makes your skin glow.
