I’ve mentioned some of these briefly in my Non MAC Lipstick Collection but thought I’d go through these in more detail today.
I love the packaging with the dark brown and gold accents and the TF embossed on the lipstick. And is it weird that I find the snap when the lid is closed oddly satisfying. I find Tom Ford lipsticks very easy and comfortable to wear. They are creamy and remind me while applying, of the YSL Rouge Volupté lipsticks but not too creamy that they slip which I find the Rouge Voluptés do. Besides one, that is part of the new Lip Colour Shine Collection they are very pigmented.
Pink Dusk - this is in the older white and gold packaging. This is a soft neutral rosy pink. There is a shimmer in the bullet but it doesn’t transfer onto the lips. I don’t own it, but I hear it’s very comparable to Spanish Pink.
Moroccan Rouge - this too has a micro shimmer while in the bullet. This is a pinky plummish shade.
Nude Vanille - this is a warm flesh-nude shade with a soft pink undertone.
Blush Nude - this and Nude Vanille are very alike. So similar that I thought the S.A. had sold me the wrong shade. You definitely don’t need both. The only difference is that this has a slightly more brown undertone.
Wild Ginger - is a coral orange toned red. I love wearing this in the Summer with a tan.
Flamingo - a vibrant bright pink shade very like in colour to Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet in 43 La Favorite.
Frolic - the is the latest addition to my collection. It is part of the new Lip Colour Shine Collection. This is a sheer lipstick, similar in consistency to the Rouge Coco Shines by Chanel. This is a beautiful peachy pink shade.
I buy mine from Brown Thomas but you can pick these up from Selfridges. There is no question that these are high-end luxury lipsticks and have the price tags to match. Even I will admit that £36 / €46 is crazy money for a lipstick that I’m sure MAC have a dupe for but I think everyone needs a bit of Tom Ford in their makeup collection. Maybe not seven bits…
