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!
