Alright, Alright...I know these are expensive at $45 a pop, but if you are like me (crazy, obsessed with Tom Ford, obsessed with packaging, nudes and lipsticks) then these are pretty much a must have in your book.
I am in love with Tom Ford to begin with, ever since he designed for Gucci back in the day. He is a fashion god and beyond sexy. Everything he does drips with sex!
When I first heard about his foray into lipsticks I knew I would spend whatever it was on them and then I saw the pictures and I knew I would be waiting patiently until the day these were released to quickly scoop up the nude colors.
I picked up Vanilla Suede and Blush Nude. In the photo below you cant really tell the colors, Vanilla Suede is the very light nude and Blush Nude is the pink nude. They are both extremely pigmented. Vanilla Suede has a slight ultra refined shimmer to it, which I quite like as sometimes a Matte Nude is very hard to wear. This nude is glossy and easy, no flakiness or dead looking lips. Blush Nude is more of a matte but still has a very slight sheen. They give me about 3-4 hours of wear which is good for me because I talk a lot and am always drinking a tea or coffee! They smell like MAC's lipsticks, but less strong.
The packaging is to die for its a lacquered white metal with gold framing. Now, this is the weird part, when you close the top of the lipstick you hear a click. It is the most expensive click. I know this sounds odd but if you have ever slammed a Mercedes door you will know what i mean. Its a tight low sounded click. very expensive feeling and sounding. Now you all probably think I am crazy! Its okay!
Anyway onto the pictures:
These are available online @ Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.
They are also available in store. Pick them up now if you want because I hear that they are limited edition and were not sold in a mass amount!
Will you be picking any up?
Do you think its crazy to spend $45 on a lipstick or do you think it is fine? Love to hear your thoughts!
