Tom Ford Du Jour: Lip Lacquer Gloss 11.13.11

Okay, Okay, the long awaited post about Tom Ford.

You know that I am a Tom Ford FREAK! I absolutely love him and I love what he did for Gucci! In my eyes, the man can basically do no wrong. However, his last beauty launch left me somewhat disapointed. I bought 2 lipsticks, Vanilla Suede and Blush Nude, which I happened to love but that was it. It was somewhat lackluster. This time around he really expanded the range and I was very excited to try some products.

I am going to talk about one of the Tom Ford products that I ordered. I am going to talk about the Lip Lacquer by Tom Ford as this is the product I have gotten to wear for a few days now. I also ordered the Shade and Illuminate Contour and Highlighter but I haven't worn enough to review yet. Look for that probably at the end of the week.

Okay lets get to the product, to put it simply... I LOVE IT. I will re-purchase this over and over and over.

According to Bergdorf Goodman "Tom Ford's opulent lip accessory: a clear gloss that lacquers lips with precious pulverized pearls, creating a reflective shine and a lavishly soft feel. Use on bare lips for a polished, sophisticated look or layer over Tom Ford Lip Color for a deeply sultry sheen."

I would have to agree with this statement, this is EXACTLY what is does. It is clear with a gorgeous sheen using crushed pearl pigments. It is NOT sparkly, I feel like my pictures are a bit misleading and look a touch sparkly, but the gloss isnt. It is shimmery and gives a gorgeous sheen... NO sparkle, trust me!

The gloss itself is smooth and soft with NO stickiness. I really like that, I have very long hair and long hair plus sticky gloss just equals an annoying disaster (especially in NYC where the wind whips around the buildings like no ones business).

Okay, on to the good stuff...

Here is the packaging, a simple elongated plastic squeeze tube, which i quite like. I love squeeze tubes because they are light and easy to stick in pockets.

Product swatch on my hand, very hard to capture the true essence of it. Here it looks sparkly but it really isnt, the flash reflects the pearl pigments.

Excuse the bad quality of the picture, but here it is on my lips with nothing else. It creates a very healthy looking sheen with a very slight shimmer. I have been wearing this alone but would be GORGEOUS over any lipstick color.

You can buy here at Bergdorf Goodman. It retails for $30, which is pricey but not out of this world expensive.

Will you try the Tom Ford range?
