To wear whilst yacht/mansion shopping, and/or counting your gold bars, two new lipsticks from Tom Ford.
These new Lip Shimmers might be best suited for the die-hard Tom Ford Beauty fans among us, and other lovers of super sheer, glimmering $49 lipsticks.
Both sultry shades are new for summer 2014 and limited edition (including the gorgeous packaging).
Warm, glimmering Solar Gold and cool-toned frosty white Moonlight are packed with Vitamins C and E, as well as shea butter, to nourish and moisturize yo’ dry pout.
In terms of texture, fragrance and wear time, I do detect the faintest hint of vanilla when I wear these lightweight, slick, non-sticky lipsticks, but the formula only lasts about an hour on my lips.
At $49 apiece — typical prices for TF — it could be difficult to justify these.
If we were talking about an everyday staple like Sable Smoke, aka “nude lipstick perfection in a tube,” I could maybe rationalize a price like that, but for barely-there lippies like these, $49 seems like a lot.
You kind of expect something truly epic for that, ya know? — like, so epic and awesome that they knock the cat-printed Vans right off your feet.
I mean, these definitely deliver sheer, shiny, barely-there color and moisture, and they’re oozing gloriously golden style, but in terms of color and formula, I think you can find similar lippies for less.
Moonlight and Solar Gold are available now at Tom Ford counters and online.
