I think it’s pretty safe to say that Tom Ford makes some of the most beautiful and luxurious looking lipsticks, hands down! I could probably spend hours raving about the stunning packaging and the lovely vanilla scent but we don’t have all day and this is a pretty picture heavy post and I think the pictures just speak for themselves!Since I have absolutely no self control whatsoever when it comes to make up it probably comes as no surprise that I once again caved in and purchased another one. After a heavy swatching session and with the help of my mom I eventually went with the shade Plum Lush.
I’d describe this shade as a rather cool toned raspberry pink! It’s more of a darker pink but still very bright, so if you’re not one for a bold lip this probably wouldn’t be one for you. Since I love a bold lip though I’m head over heels for this color. It seems to have very slight blue undertones, which I LOVE in a lipstick because it goes really well with my complexion. I feel like this is a shade you could wear all year around but I know I’ll be mostly wearing it over the summer months as it’s so bright and just reminds me of sunshine and pretty flowers.
Plum Lush is my first Tom Ford lipstick that is in a matte finish, which is actually quite surprising because I usually always go for the mattes first. If you’ve read my review on Indian Rose you might remember that I was absolutely obsessed with that lipstick but just wished it would last a little bit longer. Well, the good news is Plum Lush, being a matte finish, last a great while longer!
One thing I just love about this lipstick is despite it being a matte it’s not drying at all. It doesn’t feel moisturizing on the lips either but basically it feels as though you’re wearing no lipstick at all. It just has such a light texture! Another thing I love is how it doesn’t smudge or move around and once it fades it fades evenly. This is a very pigmented lipstick and I feel like a lot of very pigmented lipstick make a mess easily but this one doesn’t at all! I’m so amazed with how nicely it still looks on the lips even after a few hours.
From all the Tom Ford lipsticks I’ve tried so far I’m liking the matte finish the best so far. I just wish these lipsticks weren’t so damn expensive! I know quite a lot of my friends and basically my whole family think I’m a bit insane for spending such high amounts on a lipstick but for me this one was totally worth it! The product itself is just as amazing as the packing of it looks. I know that I will definitely end up getting a few more of the mattes at some point. I won’t be able to resist anyway.
Have you tried any Tom Ford lipsticks? Do you find the to be worth the money? Which one is your favorite shade?
As always thank you so much for reading!
