Tom Ford on Rodeo Drive


Despite having visited Los Angeles before I had never taken a walk down Rodeo Drive so obviously it was a must on this trip. Ben was in search of Ralph Lauren but I was just happy to enjoy the sunshine and atmosphere figuring anything I would like to buy was too out of my price range… until we walked past Tom Ford.

I had originally earmarked a Tom Ford lipstick as this years duty free purchase but unfortunately there wasn't any for sale in the various duty free halls I went through. When I saw Tom Ford on Rodeo Drive it was serendipity.

We entered the sleek store and sought out the small stand showing the amazing make up line. I had already done my research and it was a given that Flamingo (a medium pink shade) would be the colour I wanted.

I handed over a ridiculous amount of dollars, took my lipstick in it's small carrier and skipped out of the store. Now not only did I have a Tom Ford lipstick but it was a Tom Ford lipstick I brought on Rodeo Drive.

A Tom Ford lipstick is not a purchase to make lightly as they are ridiculously expensive and I can't quite say it's justified. That aside the packaging is completely luxurious and the lipstick itself is great quality. The formula reminds me of Mac's amplified in it's creamy application and it's heavily pigmented but the shade is completely wearable. The colour glides onto the lips with one swipe and as you can see from the swatch below has a lovely sheen to it.


 Am I happy I have added a Tom Ford lipstick to my collection, most definitely - every girl needs little luxury occasionally and what better momento from my trip than a magnet!
