Tom Ford Private Blend Lip Color - True Coral

Nothing exudes sex appeal and confidence than a vibrant lip. Even if you look a bit worse for wear, slick on a suitably bright lippy and you will look a million bucks, even if you don't feel it.

So what better way to get the look than with a shade from ultra luxury brand Tom Ford's Private Blend.

Tom Ford Private Blend Lip Color - True Coral 3g

  • A namesake shade, this is a vibrant bright red tone coral (rather than the usual pink or orange varieties that are out in the market) that instantly brightens and warms ups any complexion. Suitable for fair to tan skintones. 
  • As always, the creamy texture glides easily (although it lacks a bit of slip) on lips from the tube or with the use of a lip brush for precision application. A medium opaque coverage means a swipe and you get colour true to tube with a satin finish. 
  • If your lips are a bit drying, prep it with conditioners before application as this is not a the most moisturising lipstick.
  • If you don't already love it for the colour, you will love that it gives you over 3-4 hours of colour without food and fades to a stain that still give your lips some lingering colour. Then there's the light vanilla scent of the formula and the weighty white with gold trim square tube that just oozes decadence and elegance - it's hard to resist the calling of a Tom Ford Lipstick. 

In natural light, on NC30 skin

In a nutshell: A name sake coral that would brighten up anyone's day, it's a shade you can't go wrong with and is my favourite bright lipstick.
