I am not going to lie- it is fun to come home at night after a long day of work to receive bags full of beauty products from my doorman (no, he doesn't buy them for me, but he does sign for all the messengers.) As much as I want to rip through the packages the second I get home, some (most) nights I am just too exhausted and I wait for the weekend to roll around so I can relish in the excitement and experimentation.
When this gorgeous giant white box of Tom Ford Private Blend Lipstick arrived, however, it was on a night when I was especially beat. One of those nights where the entire walk home, I was planning what pjs I was going to put on and what blanket I was going to curl up with the second I walked through the front door.
All that was forgotten the second I saw this. Immediately, I set up camp in my bathroom and tried on a variety of the shades- quickly settling on a favorite- Pink Dusk (image borrowed from London Makeup Girl- her nails are much nicer than mine!)
The color is rich and opaque- but not that heavy matte that scared many of us away from lipsticks in the first place. It is sophisticated and subtle- two things I try to be when I remember :)
One of these days, I will get my husband to take of pic of me wearing it and I'll add it to this post, in case you are curious to see it in action. (Also- side note- not sure where you can get these online just yet- having a hard time finding, but when I do, will update accordingly.)
