Tom Ford is recently new to the cosmetics game. Before launching his full cosmetic line he launched his lipsticks. I love Tom Ford anything. I love his fragrances and love his cosmetics especially Shade & Illuminate, my cant live without product! I have dry skin and love a nude lip so I figured let me give Vanilla Suede a shot.
Vanilla Suede isn’t the type of nude I usually gravitate towards. I like pink-nudes and peachy-nudes, this is more of a beige nude. The packaging is gorgeous. Its high quality, heavy and understated. The lipstick its self is super moisturizing. In fact, its a bit too moisturizing. I myself cant use this alone because it just slides everywhere and isn’t opaque enough to cover my lips. I use this more like a lipgloss. I use this on top of my lipstick, since it gives it a nice sheen like a lipgloss would, just more moisturizing.
Final verdict: If you like a beige nude lip, don’t have pigmented lips and have dry lips then give this a shot. I personally dont love it but I dont hate it either. Will I repurchase? Probably not, I might purchase Nude Vanille next time as its more pink in color. If it was more opaque I would probably repurchase. For now ill stay with my current lip combo.
P.S.- Nordstrom just started carrying Tom Ford Cosmetics! The Tom Ford Cosmetics line is still pretty hard to find, only about 5 stores carry them. I know in my area the only place that carries Tom Ford is Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus at Short Hills Mall in NJ. Retails for $48.
