on the lips: Tom Ford lipstick in Narcotic Rouge



OK, now that everyone knows how gorgeous this packaging is:



I cannot take it.

The formula of this Tom Ford lipstick is gorgeous, I think the most gorgeous, and I have tried many. [It is, admittedly, also the most expensive.]

Narcotic Rouge is matte, and limited edition. It is a stunning blue-toned red with a hint of raspberry. Not for the faint of heart. It is a sister shade to Cherry Lush, which would be the non-matte, slightly brighter sister. Extremely tough call which sister I would rather be. I kind of want Cherry Lush, too.

Learned that Tom Ford reps all over the globe have to wear Tom Ford apparel and a side part in their hair. Like a strange, disparate beauty army.

Wild Ginger was a close second after a marathon swatch session at Nieman Marcus. I reason that it will be the perfect summer indulgence. Going to have to do a whole post devoted to orange lipsticks, which are a weakness of mine.
