Tom Ford Lip Color Matte

I'd been wanting to purchase a Tom Ford lip colour for some time, the packaging is so lush and I like a range of their products. I bought Velvet Cherry, which is a really deep, deep red/purple, while in New York and paid a pretty penny.
The colour looks incredible and the tones of red and purple are perfectly balanced, and it applies well, however disappointingly it doesn't have any staying power at all, which for such a deep shade is really important.
Even without eating and drinking I soon have the normal pink of my inner lips showing not long after wearing it, and if you're eating and drinking you need to reapply constantly. I can't wear it without being really conscious of whether or not it's still perfect (important for strong shades!), like I can with say a cheaper MAC matte (which you need to basically chisel off).
That said, it doesn't dry my lips out like other matte colours do, so I can wear it a few nights running and not have ruined chapped lips.
Overall, I still wear it, because the colour is lush and it looks hot. Just be careful you don't wear it on a night out, get drunk, and have a deep purple rim around your outer moosh :) For the price, next time I'd go MAC.

When I say I know red lippy, I know red lippy. This one is sooo creamy and pigmented, it's amazing. The shade Ruby Rush is the perfect pin-up red and the longevity is fab, especially when you check your lips in your selfie cam after a few drinks and you're pleasantly surprised you don't have to reapply.
