18 Apr Kissing Tom Ford
Anyways, enough gushing about the man Tom Ford.
The other day, as I walked out of Stuttafords I decided to do something I had never done before and stop at the Tom Ford concession at the entrance of the store. The only reason why I had never stopped there before is because I always imagined a Pretty Woman scenario occurring there. Me looking like I couldn’t be the type of girl to wear Tom Ford fragrances or buy a Tom Ford lip colour, and the lady behind the concession giving me a look as if to say “what are you doing here darling?”
Well, that didn’t happen. The lady was super friendly and I basically told her my entire life story (because I couldn’t stand the silence) as I looked through all the lip colours, trying to decide at R495.95 which lip colour would become my first Tom Ford purchase. I say at R495.95 because right now the Casablanca Tom Ford lip colour I currently own is a precious investment, not only from a packaging perspective, but from an actual product perspective.
I would never sit here and type out that one lipstick is better than another if I didn’t truly believe it, but let me paint a scenario for you: It’s not winter yet, but the temperature has dropped quite a bit in Gauteng and as a result of this drop in temperature my skin generally becomes incredibly dry. On Saturday when I had finally decided that Casablanca with its slight rose coloured meets nude hue was the colour to go for, I grabbed a mirror after the tester lipstick was cleaned for me, looked into the mirror and saw a pair of embarrassingly dry and ashy lips. After quickly applying the lip colour, I kid you not; instant moisture, instant natural gloss and… get this: lasting moisture.
Seriously worth the price point and definitely one of those products that will make it onto the list of things that a grown up version of Thithi needs to invest in.
