REVIEW: Tom Ford Friday

This is easily the most extravagant purchase I will make of 2019. It may take the cake for 2020 as well. I have an affinity for anything that comes in gold.

I hemmed and hawed over whether to fork over the $55 (!!) for this exquisite tube but then waited too long and it was sold out. Well, at that point, I had to have it. I ordered two off of Neiman Marcus but it is now not listed on their website at all. I think it is still available through pre-order (expected to ship late May) on Saks. I am selling my other, unopened one on Poshmark so send me a DM on IG if you are interested.

I got it and immediately did not regret this purchase from an aesthetic standpoint. It’s Liberace chic. I think Tom Ford has some of the best packaging in the game but I tend to covet their beauty products because the price tag is just a bit much for me. The clear, gold-flecked balm is beautiful in person and feels really ample upon its first application. The description said it goes on clear but turns into a “sultry pink”. Ehhhhh, not quite. It looks more Barbie Dreamhouse pink rather than a sensual Brigitte Bardot blush. Frankly, after it dries it looks more cheesy than chichi. I think this shade by itself would actually work better on someone with a darker skin tone. I have been able to layer it under a few of my other nude lipsticks so it’s not a total loss.

I guess I could also always use this to show off incase I am ever featured in USWeekly for “What’s In My Bag”.

Have you tried this? Did it work for you?

Feel free to send me a DM on IG @reinesoleillesoin

  1. I don’t know where my comment went- lost in blogspace somewhere I assume so I’ll just comment again & risk that I will have 2 comments- I take big chances in my life lol.
    So that is soooo luxurious!! Your Liberace references was perfect!! Those balms that change colour never look good on me, the colour is always minimal & they dry my lips out (I’m looking at you Dior Lip Glow) Thanks for sharing- was very helpful.
