Can we just talk about this lipstick?

Without any effects so you can get an idea  of what the lipstick color truly looks like!

On my recent New York trip for Thanksgiving (post coming soon) I ducked into Saks Fifth Avenue for a few minutes to get out of the cold (and to shop a little, who am I kidding? I certainly wasn’t fooling my mom!). Being a little southern belle in the big rude city I was of course appreciative when, at the Tom Ford makeup counter, a nicely dressed little man took notice of my “simply wonderful” accent and proceeded to totally charm me into finally buying a tube of lipstick.

// Before I continue with this story, a side note: Since going to college I have become increasingly enthralled with wearing lipstick. I used to think they made me look much older than necessary and the dramatic flair freaked me out. Now, however, I tend to wear them all the time- and I have a budding arsenal that continues to grow. //

This lipstick is unlike anything I’ve ever used before. It’s Tom Ford lip color and it is FABULOUS! I got the color Casablanca; it’s a sort darkish mauve reddy color. It seems very dark but gets better when it’s applied. The texture is amazing . It goes on smoothly and feels so light and soft on your lips, and it stays on for ages! The price is a little steep but it is totally worth it. Plus the casing is unbelievable (because let’s face it: that’s half the fun!). It’s black with gold and the most subtle Tom Ford logo on it. The link to it on Sak’s is here!
