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?
