Lipstick Diary | Tom Ford Deep Mink21:13
I know we're approaching the end of January but as this is my first post of 2015, Happy New Year! Following from my last 'What's New' post on the Tom Ford lipstick in Deep Mink, it would only make sense for there to be a 'Lipstick Diary' post so I can share my thoughts on the lipstick so far and images for you to see what it looks like on.
As you know this is my first lipstick from Tom Ford and I was more than curious to see what the hype surrounding his lipsticks were all about. Well, you definitely know that you are wearing an expensive lipstick when you have this on. I agree that in terms of quality, there is a difference compared to the other lipsticks that I own. The texture is lovely! The lipstick feels so lightweight, smooth and luxurious on the lips - almost like a balm. I haven't had any issues with it being drying and I don't find it to accentuate any fine lines or imperfections further; your lips stay hydrated and plump. As you can see it has a creamy finish so for those who only like matte lipsticks, this one may not be for you but I do know that Tom Ford does have a range of matte lipsticks now.
My only regret with this lipstick is the shade (not a major regret). Remember I told you that I was torn between 'Deep Mink' and 'Sable Smoke'? I really think I would have preferred 'Sable Smoke'. I feel as though this shade is too 'plain Jane' for me (I could be saying that because I'm so used to lighter shades) and I only find myself reaching for it when I want to look more natural and I'm not going anywhere special. In saying that, it's a great everyday and wearable shade for most, especially women of colour but to think £37 is being spent on a lipstick I wear when I'm not going anywhere special, is it worth it? Don't get me wrong, I may not be too keen on the shade but I do love everything else about the lipstick so I definitely see myself purchasing another if I wanted to treat myself. I guess 'Sable Smoke' will be next on the wishlist.
What are your thoughts on this lipstick?
