Review: Tom Ford 'Thomas' Matte Lipstick

Surprisingly, while I was out in America over Christmas I didn't actually buy a lot. The one shop I did walk into was Sephora and although everything is pretty much the same price as any shop here, I wasn't going to walk into Sephora and not buy anything.

If you've read my old posts (even though they're fair and few between) you'll know I pretty stick to my Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks when I do opt to wear them. However, when in Sephora, I was drawn to the Tom Ford (TF) section. 

Having wanted to try their Matte collection for a while, it was a no-brainer that I was going to give in and buy one. 

Having worn it for a few weeks, I'm ready to pass on my review if you are looking to try TF.

I swatched a few of the shades whilst in the store and even though I've been loving my nudes; opted for a pinky brown nude shade. 

From my first TF lipstick, I've always thought they were a great quality and this doesn't disappoint. 

TF have a collection of lipsticks called 'Boys and Girls', where all the shades are girls and boys names. The products in this selections are all enriched with exotic ingredients like chamomile flower oil. So even the thought of that sounds like it could make a great product.

You sometimes expect matte lip products to feel heavy and crack easily but this doesn't. It glides on your lips and I couldn't even feel I was wearing lipstick. Considering it is a matte, it still felt moisturising when I wore it. 

Staying power? I'd say not bad. Like with most lipstick you do have to re-apply at some point if you want it looking flawless but when it does fade it's not so obvious. This is because it's a very close shade to the colour of my lips, anyway. I'm yet to find a lipstick where you don't need to re-apply so please let me know if you have one. 

As a shade, it's a very buildable colour. So the more layers you put on it does lose that pinky tinge ever so slightly (only ever so slighty). I'd say it's a perfect shade to go with most outfits however because it does still have the nudey brown undertone. 

In terms of look, TF have pretty much nailed it. The packaging looks classy - gold and deep brown - and the TF emboss on the top of the product just adds to the elegance. 

I'm not sure I'll ever find a bad word to say about TF in all honesty, however I know that everyone has different opinions. So I'd love to know what you think if you have tried Tom Ford.

If you're dabbling with the thought of trying one of their lip products, I'd definitely say give them a try. 

The boys and girls collection is only £29 a lipstick; very reasonable. However, the standard matte and gloss collections are £40 a lipstick. So still not over excessive. Ones to try if you are on the edge.
