Ringing in the New Year with Tom Ford's Vampire Kiss

In 2014 one of my new year's resolutions is to wear more lipstick. Isn't that a great resolution? I think I can actually keep this one. I don't believe in resolutions, clearly.

The last lipstick I feel this deeply in love with was actually another Tom Ford, Bruised Plum. A dark, vampy statement lip. This time it is Vampire Kiss, a cool toned red. On your lips it really makes your face come to life, but in a naturally, almost subtle way.

I usually go for more orangey, neon looking reds, so this is something different for me. This is a classic looking red, cool toned, with a very slight ruby shimmer. You can not see the shimmer at all, just a glisten on the lips.

If you shy away from reds, I would recommend trying this one, it is very sophisticated and understated for a red lip. You will not feel that your lips are screaming (I feel this way when I wear my favorite Giorgio Armani red lipstick).

Yes, Tom Ford lipstick is pricey at $49, but I have to say, it really is quickly becoming my favorite. The colors are just done perfectly. They are opaque, creamy and don't dry my lips out like desert.

Have you tried Vampire Kiss? Will you?
