NEW TO MY WARDROBE

Tom Ford Lips & Boys

Tom Ford is a brand that sits pretty high up on my lust list. Their eye quads are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen and their lipsticks are so beautifully luxurious that I wince a little once the engraved "TF" starts to wear. Rest assured it does get worn away though, no applying from the back of the bullet going on over here!  When the Lips & Boys collection was released I made sure to swing by the launch and get a little looksie at the endearingly tiny new limited edition lipstick range.

As usual the colours are beautiful, with a rich shade and butter-like texture. Despite not being the most long lasting, they have worked their way into my daily makeup routine pretty darn fast. The difference? Whilst most top ford lipsticks are rather chunky in size, the new additions to the family are super tiny! The majority of the range has a shimmer running though and gives a beautiful plump look to the lips, however if matte lips are more your thing then there's little of that to be found in Lips & Boys. 

I have the shades Cary (plum/nude), Xavier (deep plum) and Leonardo (deep red) and all are beautiful shades. However there is always the question of dollar per gram when we're talking about limited edition lipsticks smaller than my child sized fingers. I did the math and (praying I get this right. Totally not a numbers girl) based on the prices on the Selfridges website, we're looking at a 70 pence difference per gram. With regular lipsticks coming in at £12.30 per gram (£37 for three grams - yikes) Lips & Boys being £13 per gram (£26 for two grams - double YIKES). It's not for me to say which one is worth buying (unless you're not a fan of small glossy lipsticks), so go, swatch and let me know your thoughts.

  1. I really want a Tom Ford lipstick for my birthday next week but not sure what to get. Are the Lips and Boys collection all glossy? And what nudeish pink shade would you suggest?

    P.s I love your blob and videos and read/watch the moment they are uploaded!

    I have a blog too over at confessionsofcue.blogspot.com but it's not anything like yours

  14. I do love me a good Tom Ford lipstick. They've just got luxury written all over them! <3 The price is a little worrying, but sometimes I think if you're prepared to splash out for a high end lipstick you're gonna do it anyway... even though it pains you after you hand over the cash. Haha.

  28. "...I wince a little once the engraved "TF" starts to wear" <---- so true, I do the same thing when it comes to expensive lipsticks!!! They're almost too beautiful to use...

  29. I remember seeing you vlog about when you got these so it's nice to see your in depth review too! I really want to treat myself to a Tom Ford lipstick with some of my Christmas money but I haven't yet found that perfect color because there are just so many to choose from haha. I also think it was super helpful that you broke down the price--definitely something to think about!

  35. TF is always on my list to buy or even try. They don't have a counter in my area. It's probably best for my wallet.

  38. Hiya I love reading your blog it's one of my faves!! i wanted to add some constructive criticism just about the font colour- I don't know if you've changed it recently but a darker font would be so much easier to read! x

  39. I am just so in love with these bad boys! :) great shades!

  40. I love Tom Ford but these lipsticks def fall into the eye candy look. The shades are gorgeous but they don't look super unique beyond the UBER sleek and sexy packaging.

    Btw. I recently discovered your channel and blog and congrats on making the shift to full time beauty life!
