TOM FORD LIP COLOR SPANISH PINK


Can we just all gather around and ogle at the beauties that are Tom Ford lipsticks? Take a moment….
So now that that's over with, I wanted to introduce to you this new little friend of mine. These lip colors are encased in sleek mahogany (and gold!) packaging and oh, produce that smooth clicking sound when they are  closed; it's safe to say it's love. Me and Tom are starting this new affair off on the right foot, might I add. I have held off on buying one of these for some time and as you can see, I finally caved. But, I pat myself on the back for lasting this long - and now I wish I hadn't. To tell you the truth I am such a sucker for good marketing that I actually picked this color up to take with me on an upcoming trip I am taking. Yes, you guessed right - I'm heading off to Spain. 

I used to get to travel a bit more often and now with a full time 'grown-up' job, I can't quite steal away as many vacation days as I could during my college years. Oh, the good old days. I am leaving three weeks from today and have to say I am getting very excited, and partially because I love packing up my beauty bits. So anyway, I digress; but let us not forget the reason why we are here. Tom Ford Spanish Pink Lip Color is perhaps the most perfect slightly peachy muted pink-nude (quite a mouthful) shade of lipstick that I am yet to come across. It smells amazing, like cocoa butter and vanilla, is incredibly soft and moisturizing on the lips yet has some definite staying power as opposed to some other smooth lippies I own. It is not quite as glossy as, say, a Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick, but it packs a much more creamy punch and I found one slick lasted about 3-4 hours before fading at all. Although a bit pricier than I would like it to be, it is definitely a nice treat and Tom does bring it in the quality category. This color is perfect for my trip - and for Summer, with just the right amount of muted coral to make it seasonally appropriate.

Have you guys ever tried the Tom Ford lip colors? If so, which color - I am looking into which shade to get my hands on next!

  1. I just heard about Tom Ford's lipsticks on Youtube. I am very interested in trying them. All the shades I've seen though have been more nude or muted shades and I really like a pop of color on my lips.

    1. Then I would recommend trying out Wild Ginger! Vivianna Does Makeup has swatted it on her blog and its a beautiful orange toned red that I definitely want to pick up as well. Hope this helps :)

    1. I hear you! They are a nice treat but owning the whole collection isn't in the cards for me anytime soon, lol. I will have to have a look at the Cherry Lush shade!
