Tom Ford Private Blend Lip Color Collection

This week me and some other ladies were talking  about Tom Ford lipsticks on twitter and I realized that I forgot to make a post about it. I have no idea how that happened because the lipsticks are already available (not sure about US) and I  already read some lovely reviews.

I love this lipstick and nail polish and the promo photo is SO Tom Ford

There are 12 shades in the range and each is €45 (which is $57) or $45 in the US, or £35 in the UK.

Here is what is written:

“Tom Ford’s take on twelve classic lip colors, from bare nude to fire red to deep brown, re-imagined in a modern and authoritative way.

Formulated with rare and exotic ingredients including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil, the luxurious formula has an ultra-creamy texture for an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated color pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity.”

Design of the lipstick

The shades are(and I really love the names):

  1. Black Orchid
  2. Vanilla Suede
  3. Warm Sable
  4. Cherry Lush
  5. Bruised Plum

Brand Worth Trying: Chantecaille

Today I would like to make a post about Chantecaille. It is an amazing luxury brand with the most beautiful design. They have a lot of LE collections dedicated to ocean life and different animals. Chantecaille  donates 5% of proceeds to different  wildlife-monitoring networks.

If you follow me on twitter you know that my friend’s blog Autumn Masquerade is back!!! And you can read a lot of reaviews about the brand there.
