For the last 10 years, I’ve been a MAC snob when it comes to lipsticks, I wouldn’t try or look at another brand because in my opinion MAC has the best colors. This all changed during a recent trip to SAKS. My mind was set on buying NARS blushes and shadows. While going through ridiculous amounts of NARS makeup, the wonderful sales associate suggested I buy something with my gift card that I wouldn’t normally buy for myself. She then led me to the Tom Ford counter and this wonderful lipstick, Sable Smoke (pictured above on the left). Now, this was my first time trying this product line and I WAS IN LOVE. This was the most moisturizing, creamy, smooth as silk lipstick I have ever applied to my lips. I was immediately sold. That was until I saw the color Wild Ginger (pictured above on the right). This color was to die for. I spent a good 20 minutes going back and forth between colors and eventually picked the Sable Smoke because it’s more “work appropriate” than the bright orange.
It’s one month later and I’m still loving the creamy texture of the Tom Ford lipstick in Sable Smoke and I usually pair it with the NARS gloss in SUPERVIXEN (purchased on the same day). I’m still dying to purchase the Wild Ginger lipstick and I think about it often *sighs*. It’s so hard to find the PERFECT orange and I have found it. Wild Ginger shall be mine soon!
If you’re interested in purchasing either of these lipsticks or seeing more of Tom Ford’s cosmetic line, they can be found at Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and Saks Fifth Avenue. The lipsticks retail for $50 USD.
