Today’s lippy shade is a gorgeous raspberry red from Tom Ford, and one that I got as a mini sample with the lipsticks I got from my Mum for my birthday. Firstly, I am totally in love with this mini size packaging, I mean, have you ever seen a cuter lipstick?!
Apart from the packaging which basically had me at hello, this shade is the kind of shade I love. Though it is called Smoke Red, to me the shade is definitely more of a raspberry as it has a very slight pink undertone to it.
The formula, as with all these lippies from Tom Ford, is smooth, creamy and very moisturising. The pigment is rich and bold, and the formula is very blendable and easy to apply.
The finish is a slight satin gloss, not shiny, but does give a nice sheen to the lips. The lasting power is very good for a satin finish, but not as long lasting as a matte or cream as you would expect.
Have you tried a Tom Ford lippy yet? If so then let me know your thoughts – over rated or worth every cent?!
