This is the start of my Tom Ford make up collection. I am rather happy with what I have so far.
My absolute number one is Pink Dusk, this for me is the perfect nudey pink. It's my lips but a lot better! It's the creamy formula that blew me away. With one swipe your lips are covered, in a beautiful, moisturising natural colour. Totally me.
As you can see from the swatch below, the colour and pigmentation is amazing. This will forever hold a place in my make up collection.
Next up in is actually my first purchase, I was working away on business when I noticed the hotel where I was staying over looked the Trafford centre, in Manchester! Bonus, off I trotted into Selfridges. This was the first time I had ever seen the brand Tom Ford. I was sat down by a fabulous sales assistant. I'm a girl who loves her natural shades, so it was a shock for myself to choose such a vibrant colour. None the less I love this variation.
As you can see by the swatch, what a truly divine colour. Bright, cheerful and eye catching. I find with all my Tom Ford lipsticks, they are so pigmented as I said earlier. You only need one sweep over the lips and your good to go.
Finally my more recent purchase, this is a deep colour that I would liken to a blood red. This is the only colour of this kind in my whole lipstick collection. And believe me I have a lot! So I am happy to own this.
This applies slightly different to the others, it's not so creamy, it's more sheer. But don't be fooled, it's still very pigmented. The swatch I have photographed for you is built up with a number of layers. I tend to wear this by dabbing onto my lips then rubbing in with my fingers. It leaves a lovely rouged effect.
Now let me go back to my first purchase the dating coral one, the assistant was so nice and sent me away with a bag full of goodies to try. This included sample pots of primer, foundations and lipsticks. Yes you heard me correctly, lipsticks! This is a first for me. She carefully took out a knife and proceeded to slice the ends of various shades she thought I would like. This included Sable Smoke below. A true browny nude, this will be mine one day.
Spanish Pink is below, a gorgeous baby, soft pink. I really like this offering as well.
Here is my little Muji box, what a brilliant way to keep your samples or ends of lipsticks. Waste not want not and all that, as you can see I also got a sample of Dusk Pink. As I purchased this I didn't see the point adding it in. The other 2 shades include old Ysl and Lancôme lip sticks, I just scooped the remainders out and popped into the box. I use a lip brush to apply. I would highly recommend you getting some of these muji boxes, I keep all sorts in them.
To finish this off, how beautiful is the packaging??? There is something about the click when closing. I know these are a luxury treat, and not something I could buy every week. This make Tom Ford make up an item for special occasions.
Do you own a Tom Ford lipstick? Or make up? I would love to hear what your recommendations are. I want to try the new offerings, the sheer editions.
Tom Ford lipsticks are available from Selfridges for £36.
