Tom Ford Spring 2017 Shade and illuminate lips
If you are looking to spruce up your vanity with something sexy and expensive, then look this way. The new Tom ford Spring 2017 Color collection* (limited edition) – with two shade and illuminate cheeks (retails for $80) and six shades of shade and illuminate lip products (retails for $60) . When I first saw the lip duo I thought hmm well those are strange shades for eyeshadows. As they come in a standard eyeshadow duo packaging which is quite interesting. And I was lucky enough to try the three shades from the lip range. Even though it is described as velvet matt, when I did swatch it on my hand I had an impression of them being a bit more creamy formula with sheen finish. Only to realize I was totally wrong.
The first thing that came to my mind after looking at these, was, how can I have the heart to swirl my finger in that gorgeous product. But well I did and here are my thoughts on it.
The three shades I have are Impulse, Possession, Tantalizing. There is something for everyone, from moody nudes to pretty berries, flirty coral to fresh pinks.
What I Like :
- Intense Pigmentation
- Despite the limited color range, there is something for everyone.
- Smooth matte application
- Super Long-wearing
- Transfer Proof
- Even after wearing off leaves a beautiful stain on the lips.
What I Don’t Like :
- Despite being a comfortable matt, it does dry the lips and settle in between the lines.
- Despite the chic packaging, I felt it was a bit impractical. You’d have to use a lip brush.
- Price, but then again it is TomFord
Overall : I feel these are lovely matt lipsticks, only if you can justify the price tag. The number one reason why I was totally impressed by these was the fact that they are transfer proof and didn’t smear off my lips even after consuming a butt load of buttery delight last night.
Now the question is would you splurge or purge ?
