So there is a bit of story behind this lipstick...I picked this up on my trip to London last month. I was browsing the beauty hall in Harrods and walked past and spotted the Tom Ford stand, took a few steps back and started swatching away. None of the colours really jumped out at me, but I had my heart set on getting a Tom Ford lipstick, so I picked Frolic from the Colour Shine range and went for an every day colour but I was in two minds about it...Anyway I went to pay, I didn’t ask the price and the sales assistant told me it was £36!! I almost had a heart attack. In my mind I was thinking it was going to be £20-£25 like most high end lip products...too embarrassed to say ‘No’, I handed my card over...since I was paying with my Maltese debit card I had the option to pay in euros....€44!! All I could think was...I’m paying €44 for a lipstick I don’t even love. I walked out having a serious talk to myself!!
But...it all worked out in the end. When I got back home I was thinking, right well I better start wearing this since I’ve spent all that money on it....and you know what, since I’ve actually started wearing it’s one of my favourite lip colours at the moment. It looks so much better on than it did when I swatched it in the shop. So a happy ending after all (except for the price!)
So now onto the actual lipstick...Frolic is a beautiful peachy coral colour. It comes in luxurious packaging and feels high end (and so it should!) The lip colour shine formula is creamy and moisturising, which good colour pay off with a sheen finish. It wears well for a good 4 hours. The colour is perfect for day wear and evening, so if your going to invest in a Tom Ford lipstick you want to get the most use out of it - and Frolic is a good first choice.
Have you tried any Tom Ford lip products - what colours would you recommend?
