Tom Ford Bruised Plum

Happy Saturday everyone!

I thought there was no better way to start off the weekend than to gush about my new lip obsession. Tom Ford Bruised Plum ($55 from Holt Renfrew) is an oldie for most but a new found love for me.

I was actually put on a waiting list for this product, something I usually don’t do because there are so many products out there to try, but I just had to have it.

Bruised Plum looks exactly like its name; it’s a gorgeous purple plum colour. With only one swipe on the lips you can more red and lighter purple tones, but with a few more layers you can get a deeper, vampy lip.

I would say the finish is not matte but it isn’t particularly shiny or glossy either. I thought this lipstick would be quite drying but I didn’t find that to be the case at all, it’s surprisingly very comfortable to wear on the lips and has decent staying power – a good few hours.

In my opinion, this is definitely one of the more wearable dark, autumn lips. Yes, it can be quite bold but I think it’s one of those shades that will look great on most skin tones and isn’t completely overpowering or distracting.

All of this just goes to say that I love it! If you’re going to buy one expensive lipstick in your life, I highly recommend this one.
