Sometimes you really have to splurge on yourself, and what better way to do that than with Tom Ford?
This lipstick shade is iconic. It is a beautiful rich aubergine with a micro red shimmer running through that doesn't show up at all upon application. It also has a light sheen and is ridiculously opaque on application (which I love). The formula is surprisingly hydrating and smooth, making this extremely wearable for long term.
I'm certainly not shy when it comes to dark colours but for those who are, don't be afraid of this shade! This lipstick is so much more versatile than you would think. You can apply it lightly with a lip brush for a more berry toned stain, or you can apply it straight from the bullet for a more full blown vampy look as I've done in the photo.
Also: the packaging. Can we just have a moment for the packaging? It. Is. Stunning. It's one of those lipsticks that you long to reapply just so you can pull it out and marvel at its' beauty. But seriously, I'm obsessed with this lipstick. Can you tell? Am I gushing too much?
Unfortunately this lipstick is being discontinued soon so if you find one, snatch it up before it's too late.
