There’s something very villainess about Tom Ford’s $49 Rouge Fatal Lip Color…
It’s almost criminally hot in a naughty, awesome way — like something you’d see on a bad-@ss Bond girl wearing a floor-length sequined cocktail dress in an exclusive underground casino as she blows a slo-mo kiss across a crowded room to her handsome nemesis shortly before she hands a beat-down to some numb-nuts who tries to prevent her from entering a secure area.
BOOM! And then you see that flash of red again right as she smiles before delivering the fatal blow — a kick from her three-inch spiked heels directly in the poor guy’s groin.
Not gonna lie, I totally want to be that chick. Mostly because the bad gals get to have more fun with their makeup. They get to go bold, just like this lipstick.
Creamy crimson Rouge Fatal hails from Tom Ford’s new four-piece Jasmin Rouge 2013 color collection of powerful red lips and nails, and wearing it makes me feel like a decadently daring (crazy cat lady) glamorous gangster.
While the $49 price Tom asks for his lipsticks makes me go, “blergh!” I have to say that despite this not being the most unique red in the criminal universe, it does make red lips really, really easy.
I was so excited to try it on that I skipped the usual prep work I do before putting on a powerful red lip like this (exfoliating with an olive oil and sugar scrub, moisturizing with a rich lip balm and lining with a coordinating lip liner). I just threw it on, and hello! — it looked really, really good.
Rouge Fatal has that fabulous felonious ability to make lips look flawless even when they aren’t. Not an easy feat for such a bright, intense red, but it gets it done. Wearing it, even flaky lips look incredibly smooth.
Blast you, Tom Ford! Blast you for making Rouge Fatal’s creamy formula hug my lips without settling into my fine lip lines and flaky areas.
As for the price, at least it’s almost like you’re getting two lip products for the (very high) price of one, because as the lipstick wears down, it slowly fades into a lovely dark stain…
This lethal red lippie will illuminate your look the moment you slip it on. Pair it with a black cat liner and go do some damage!
PRICE: $49 (OMG!)
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Neiman Marcus stores and neimanmarcus.com

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I am beat, babe… I hope you had a good day. I’m tired from trying to film and edit that short video earlier this afternoon.
There are just so many things I don’t know how to do when it comes to video. Over the years, I’ve mostly done written posts with regular photography because I love those things, but I’ve wanted to do more videos. It’s just that they’re a completely different beast.
Lots to learn, but it’s also a rush! I hope you don’t mind if I keep trying some videos. I feel like mixing things up a little with something new.
