Product Purchased by IMBB
The moment you hear or read the name “Tom Ford,” it does something to your brain and the bench mark of expectations rise real high. That maybe because of the high”est” end placing of the products on the beauty spectrum, the exorbitant price tags or the ultra glam iconic packaging. Tom Ford products are raved and ranted about in the entire blogosphere. But, are they really worth the hype?? I had been lemming for their lipsticks since ages and finally got my hands on a couple of them. This one’s a gift from IMBB and I am so delighted to share my review on it with you.
The Product Details (from the website):
To Tom Ford, there is no more dramatic accessory than a perfect lip. It is the focus of the face and it has the power to define a woman’s whole look. Each lip color is Tom Ford’s modern ideal of an essential makeup shade. Rare and exotic ingredients, including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil, create an ultra-creamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.
$50 in US / I bought for INR 4000 for 3gms
The packaging id unique square tube with golden detailing and sharp edges. It is heavy and looks very class. Lipstick has a twist up mechanism and the lack of magnetic closure in a high end lippy looks like a glaring omission!
The TF engraved on the lipstick bullet is a killer…its such a deterrent to using it…scared of its disappearing from the tube!
My experience with Tom Ford Lip Colour – Wild Ginger:
Color: The shade, Wild Ginger, is a warm vibrant orange-red. Unlike YSL Le Orange (my favorite Orange ever), this one’s more red and has a richness about it. The shade will look more red on cooler skintone and more orange on warmer ones. It is not red but a distinct orange red. The colour is bold and beautiful – something which screams for attention, so I keep rest of the makeup subtle when I use this. There is no shimmer or glossiness but the colour has a vibrancy which does not allow it to look matte or flat.
Texture: The texture is lightweight and creamy. It glides on smoothly and feels nourishing/hydrating. The formula is very comfortable to wear – one of the finest I have come across.
Pigmentation: It is extremelypigmented – full opaque in one swipe -95-100% colour deposit in a single layer. There is no need to build up to the colour. It hides lip pigmentation effectively.Despite the rich colour, there was no feathering or bleeding. I did not need to reach for a lip liner.
Lasting power:I got about 5.5hours wear time. Post which I had to eat something. Eating, drinking caused a little wear in the corners of the mouth. One touch up and I was good to go for the rest of the day.I had to remove the whole thing with a makeup remover.
To sum this up for you:
Pros of Tom Ford Lip Colour – Wild Ginger:
1. A beautiful vibrant color
2. Lightweight creamytexture.
3. Excellent pigmentation – Opaque in a single swipe.
5. Easy to apply from the tube
6. The lipstick applies smoothly – no tug or pull – far from it!
7. Does not settle into the fine lines of the lips
8. No feathering or bleeding
9. Iconic Luxe packaging
10. Good lasting power.
11. Packaging is convenient for applying and touch-ups
Cons of Tom Ford Lip Colour – Wild Ginger:
Some might say that the shade is not unique and easily dupable. Why pay such hefty price for it. Well, you can reach a destination on a Maruti, a Honda, or a BMW…the ease of travelling will change depending on the vehicle. Same way, one isn’t just paying for the colour but the entire luxe experience. Having said that, does everyone really need to buy one. Not really. This comes with a hefty price tag. Ill put it this way – Its not a need to buy product but if you do decide to buy one, you wont be disappointed.
