27 May Makeup Review, Swatches: Tom Ford Private Blend Lipsticks: Islands of Color
Every girl needs some Tom Ford in her life. This may come in the form of his movie, his clothes, a man who enjoys his tailored, Saville-Row esque pleasures we call suits.
The Tom Ford Private Blend Lipsticks are twelve essential gems that will decorate the most sensuous part of your face. Ford himself has said, “There is no more dramatic accessory than the perfect lip,” and we agree. Gwen Stefani, Lady Gaga, Liz Taylor all agree.
The personal color palette of the Private Blend Lipsticks spans all shades of the color spectrum, from bare nude to fire red to deep brown. I love each of the names…they sit like honey on the tongue, and wear like silk on the lips:
Black Orchid…Blush Nude…Bruised Plum…Cherry Lush…Ginger Fawn…Moroccan Rouge…Pink Dusk….Smoke Red…True Coral…Vanilla Suede…Warm Sable…
Typically, lipstick cases have rounded edges. These gold-accented ivory cases evoke the Private Blend flacons and have the TF icon stamped on each lipstick bullet.
Are the lipsticks moisturizing? Yes. They sit like layers of pigmented aqua on your lips. This is because they contain rare and exotic ingredients like soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil to create the lustrous texture.
Only a deeply privileged woman will choose and wear this iconic lip color. Be jewelled.
