From a simple, can’t-go-wrong and credit card-friendly price tag of Revlon yesterday, I am bringing you into the marvelous and luxurious world of Mr Tom Ford. Of the many products of Tom Ford that I have tried, none is as fabulous as his lipsticks.
Each one is creamy, rich and applies buttery smooth. There’s always a hint of vanilla to the product but the scent dissipates very quickly and is hardly discernible.
I have covered the packaging before in my previous post on Cherry Lush so I won’t dwell into it further.
This colour, very aptly-named True Coral is as simple as that. Pure, plain, simple coral. Except that there is nothing plain nor simple to this colour. It is a fantastic pop of colour and it is a colour I wear almost exclusively in summer.
As opposed to the Smash Box tangerine lipstick that I reviewed previously, this lipstick does not dry my lips out despite long-hours of wear. I usually apply this straight from the tube because I would prefer the extra 30s of sleep to actually looking perfect. (Perfection is SO overrated. So says this slacker). A quick blot with a piece of tissue, a second layer of colour and I dash out of the door. This goes without saying that I do try to prep my lips with my favourite lip balm. If I can remember.
So DOESN’T look coral. Trying to capture coral is a total female dog!
So, do you need this lipstick? Well, yes and no. Yes if you are after something that is utterly luxurious and lovely. Tom Ford is really expensive. Possibly the most expensive I’ve ever owned. And that is the reason why I would discourage you from taking the plunge. This is an extremely lovely treat and if you ever get the chance to purchase this, you won’t regret it.
And, a quick look at what I thought of the Revlon Colorburst!
