You read the title right... A few months ago (when I had more money than sense) I went and 'treated myself' to a €40 lipstick.... Why did I do this? Well if you know me at all you know I like my luxury brands and whether it be a Louis Vuitton hand bag or a Creme de la Mer face cream, if I get it into my head that I want it - I will save up and get it!
Before we get into things a slight disclaimer, I love thinking I'm one of the Kardashians and like to splurge on a designer item ever now and then. If you are not into it, I won't judge... So please don't judge me! I am aware I have a problem, but hey, I could be doing worse! Anyways... Onto the lipstick...
Tom Ford Lip Colour
I chose to get a Tom Ford lipstick after Wayne Goss raved about the brand on his Youtube channel and Instagram. To be honest, I had it in my head for a while that I wanted one and like I said before once I have my sights set, it has to be mine.
Because I was going to be spending €40 on a lipstick (even typing the words I see how ridiculous I am) I wanted to purchase one that I knew I would get good use out of, So, after much consideration I went with the shade Sable Smoke(14).
Is it worth the money?
So now you know the back story onto the reason your here. Is it worth the €40.
Honestly, NO! Can you believe it!
There is no denying the packaging and the product itself are of a high standard however, while I do love it, I would not purchase another lipstick. It is a treasured item in my makeup collection and the TF on that bullet is a thing of beauty, but I have found there is nothing mind-blowing that makes me justify the price. By all means, if you wanted to have one outrageously expensive lipstick, the formula is beautiful as is the colour, but you can get the same from MAC or Smashbox at half the price.
Would I buy again?
Not going to lie, if I had the bank balance of one of the Kardashian/Jenner clan there is no doubt in my mind I would have every shade Tom Ford had to offer but for us 'normal' people, invest your money elsewhere. Buy a good foundation or moisturiser if you want a premium beauty item.
You don't need €40 lipstick in your life... I learned the hard way with a hole in my pocket! LOL!
I hope you enjoyed reading this and found it interesting. I'm thinking of doing more of these 'Are they worth it?' style blogs. Let me know it you would like to see more!
