Lust Must: Tom Ford lipstick

Tom Ford knows how to seduce a girl.

The beauty world is abuzz about Tom Ford‘s very exclusive, very expensive beauty collection. His lipsticks, priced at $48 each go on so smooth and seductive, it will have you digging through your purse for the money or plotting how to beg, borrow or steal to get one. I haven’t bought yet but had the fortune of swatching a few at Neiman Marcus last week.

Jam packed with murumuru butter, these lipsticks are VERY moisturizing. I daresay that even with the lighter color offerings you would get a ‘my lips but better’ look alone or w/ lip liner for more emphasis, than the dreaded Tyrone Biggums look.

Are these lipsticks worth the price? Tom Ford is a couture label with the associated high quality inference so worth isn’t the issue here. Is it worthy of its price. Definitely yes! But I feel Guerlain’s Rouge Automatique offers just as pigmented a range for only $35 and you get the cool Bond Girl single hand opening mechanism that seduces geek girls like me.

My faves? Definitely Violet Fatale and True Coral. Black Orchid is nice but Guerlain’s Rouge Automatique in ‘Nuit d’Amour’ is about the same shade and lasts longer.
