Who might like Tom Ford Beauty’s Lip Lacquer in Pink Lust? Hmm…
- Someone willing to drop the scrilla on three pairs of Choos, and would do it without batting an eye.
- Someone who drives the Bentley to Rite Aid to get a Mother’s Day Card because the chauffeur has the day off.
- Someone with an in-house beauty team at her beck and call (NOTE: Mariah Carey has one, which does not surprise me, and it furthers my theory that MiMi is a kooky, yet misunderstood, genius).
In other words, unless your upper makeup spending limit hits three or four digits on the reg, most guys/gals will probably find Tom’s $30 pearly pink gloss, as gorgeous as I think it is (especially with a tan), really, really expensive for what you get.
Because it’s $30 (!), pretty sheer and only lasts about 30 minutes. Tops.
Like a MAC Cremesheen Glass’s ritzy cousin, it has a similarly thin, smoove formula and texture, similar vanilla flavor and scent and a super shiny finish.
Do I like it? Most certainly, yes. I think it’s a beautiful, flattering nude pink gloss that makes sense alongside the rest of Tom’s summer 2013 collection, but I’m not sure it’s worth 30 bones…
Maybe, depending on your makeup budget, or if you just feel like throwing caution to the wind and treating yourself to an extravagant gift.
PRICE: $30 for a 0.5-ounce tube
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Tom Ford counters (may also be available online at neimanmarcus.com)

What up, Wednesday?
Brr… It’s cold in here! And overcast, so I’m bundled up in a Zella hoodie and sweats at my desk.
Um, where’d the warm weather go??
Of course, now that the temperature has dropped, the neighborhood pool has finally opened…
Gotta love it when the universe has a sense of humor.
I’ve been looking (and psyching myself up) for a new swimsuit this week, but here’s the thing: I’m okay about wearing a bikini to the beach where I’ll be surrounded by strangers, but I’m not as keen about wearing one around my neighbors…whom I see day in, day out.
Is that nuts?
Anywho, I’m thinking about some cute retro one-pieces over at Anthropologie.
What do ya think? If you find any cool swimwear this year, let me know.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
