When I think of luxury, Tom Ford is the first brand that comes to mind. Super-luxe, ridiculously expensive, and extremely alluring. I finally caved on my quest for the perfect Christmas red and purchased my very first Tom Ford makeup item - and I don't regret it one little bit.
Behold - Tom Ford Lips and Boys Lip Color in Dylan.
Look at that packaging. I'm swooning internally. Luxe, heavy, gilded, with a satisfying click-close - and so it should be, at the price point. TF have nailed the luxury feel on this line of lipsticks. Lips and Boys lipsticks are quite a bit teenier than is standard, word to the wise, so don't be shocked at the weeny little bullet when you click that chic lid off your luxe lipstick. (honestly though, I am yet to fully finish a red lipstick, so I'm hoping this little joy will last for a while!)
Isn't it beautiful? The texture is a dream - creamy but not heavy; very light and comfortable on the lips; and unlike 99.9% of formulas on the matte end of the spectrum, I find this to be moisturising as time goes on. It fades elegantly with time, and leaves a smooth, comfortable, non-patchy red stain behind.
And the colour? Perfect. Neutral toned, punchy, pigmented, medium red - this is a one-size-fits-all shade of red. There is nothing I don't love about this (except the price). If you're looking for a little Christmas treat for yourself or a lipstick-loving loved one - definitely consider this Tom Ford beauty!
