As my lipstick challenge draws to a close, of course I had to leave a very special lipstick for the penultimate day. While you’ll have to wait just one more day to see what my final choice is, today’s lippy might just be my favourite of all the Tom Ford lipsticks I’ve tried to-date.
This lipstick is from the Ultra-Rich lip colour range and is possibly one of the creamiest formulas I’ve ever come across in a lippy. It is rich in texture, thick without being too thick, and has the most luxurious feel, more-so than most other lipsticks I’ve tried this year.
Aside from the fab formula, the shade is a gorgeous raspberry pink; my perfect kind of berry shade, with incredible pigment and great colour pay off. Initially from looking at it, I thought it would be more red than berry, but was so happy to discover the raspberry tone once I applied it.
The creamy formula makes it very easy to apply and blend, and it layers up to give a rich, deep colour that I just love. As with all Tom Ford lipsticks however, you really don’t need to apply much at all because the pigment is so good.
You may recall in some of my Tom Ford posts, I’ve questioned whether or not they are really worth the hefty €49 price tag. They are gorgeous of course, and I’ve been lucky enough to get mine as gifts from my family, but €49 is a lot to spend on a lipstick unless you absolutely adore it.
However, after wearing this shade today, I think I can safely say I will happily spend €49 on this shade again – I love it that much! Plus, I’m feeling very under the weather with the flu and this was exactly what I needed to cheer myself up today!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; never underestimate the power of a great lipstick to make you feel amazing!
Have you splurged on a Tom Ford lippy yet?! If so, I’d love to hear all about it.
