I would love to have Tom Ford on my Lips....


I have always thought of myself as a bit of a "lipgloss bitch" get me anywhere near a high end beauty counter and I will have to buy a lipgloss but I have become really pissed off with them lately after buying 2 Chanel ones at £16 each, which when put on before the school run, quickly do a disappearing act in the 25 minutes I am out of the house and there is not a trace of them left when I get back home!  I really wouldn't mind, if I were in Starbucks slurping on a Latte, or grabbing a croissant from the co-op on the way home, but nothing is passing my lips during that time, what a complete waste of money!  So the news that Lipsticks would be making a bit of a comeback for spring/summer came as very welcome news and as usual, Tom Ford's Lipstick range launch is perfectly timed, but we wouldn't expect anything else from the Style Guru would we?
The collection consists of 12 colours and the formula contains rare ingredients including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil, which is said to give the lipsticks their ultra-creamy texture and smooth application. I love the names of the Black Orchid and Vanilla Suede although I don't think either of those colours would suit me and I would probably have to get Pink Dusk to work with my complexion.
At £35 each, I don't think I would be smearing these on for the school run, I would have to save for best and would need to pick up a cheap lipstick brush to get that last 1/3rd out, that is still sitting in the tube when you think the product has run out!
Having worn Gloss for so long now, I don't think I will be taking any chances by purchasing one online as would like to try out the colours first, but if you are more confident and can't wait to get to London to purchase one of these beauties in their opulent white and gold packaging, you can buy online from Selfridges.
I shall be slowing dealing with my gloss addiction and weaning myself off of the sticky stuff, in preparation for a visit to Selfridges on my next trip to London.  Would you pay £35 for a lipstick?

  1. I'm a lipstick bitch! But I cannot spend 70 bucks on lipstick. I top out at 30. For now.

  2. I'm not of a lipstick person, I prefer gloss. And I won't spend that much. I discovered the Bath&Body Works lip gloss line and I love it.

    Have a great weekend! xoxo

  5. MMM if I suited it and if its stayed on .. maybe as it would last longer as in not needing to renew all the time.. But I am a gloss girl or lip balm so dont really do colour so no xx

  10. Wow Tom Ford has really hit the jackpot with his cosmetics line! That lipstick looks fab though and knowing myself I would totally buy this if I encountered it at the counter of Selfridges!

  11. Try before you buy, lippies are a lot harder to wear than gloss, if the colour is all wrong for your skin tone. I heart Tom too x

  12. I love lip gloss for a quick more casual look and tend to wear lipstick when I am making a bit more of an effort.

    I am quite loyal to Chanel in terms of lipstick as I find they stay on quite well but I have never tried their lipgloss (i usually go for cheaper lip gloss which seems to do the job)

    The colours of the Tom Ford lipsticks look great and I would pay that much but only for a really special treat.

  15. The lipstick looks scrumptious! And yes, unfortunately, the beauty addict in me would pay £35 for a lipstick. *walks away in shame*

    PS: I think it was here that I said I wouldn't/couldn't wear a trilby. Well, I was walking past Malene Birger today, and I just couldn't resist trying it on, and, ahem, now I am the proud owner of a MB straw trilby. And it's all your fault! ;)

  16. I am in lippy phase right now, but have equal amounts of both! I am surprised how crap your Chanel ones were, I find they are the best as they arent sticky either, ooh and Dior too are a bit more heavy weight. £35 is a rip off but who cares, if they are the 'never seen before colours every girl is waiting for blah blah..' I will definatley wait untill I can test them though, I am very intriged as to what colours I have never seen before!! x

  17. I just can't do gloss: gets stuck in my hair. But am lipstick addict: but I only wear Bobbi Brown - & I pay for it! I would never spend £35 on a lipstick. Never. And that's purely becaus it wld go the same way as all my umbrellas, sunglasses etc! LLGxx

  18. Shame, shame, shame... I'm with Metropolitan Mom. I fear I've done crazier things in my past! My current lipstick obsession is Elizabeth Arden, but I'm fickle and will change my devotion next time I visit the beauty counter!

  19. Hi there-In answer to your question about the KM jacket, it was a pound more than the Tom Ford lippy!! Yes, I've been checking them out on ebay over the last few months and they've been in the £60-£75 region, so very pleased indeed!
