Trying to discover the perfect pinky-nude lipstick is like looking for the perfect fitting jeans. Some people spend a lifetime searching and never actually find it. Everyone has a different combination of skin tone, hair color and eye color making it tough to find a shade that looks like your lips -but better. The timeless color always looks polished without being overdone.
It has taken an embarrassingly large amount of trial and error, but I have found my perfect pinky-nude lipstick. It’s from the “Lips and Boys” collection from Tom Ford Beauty in the shade “Ian” (get it here).
Can we pause for a sec to acknowledge the packaging? I’ve never laid eyes on a more sleek, luxe tube of lipstick. Ever ever. If you are a packaging weirdo like me, here’s a few pics of what this sucker looks like…
It’s not cheap ($36) BUT you get what you pay for. The formula feels light (not waxy), the microscopic gold flecks in it bounce just the right amount of light off to appear glowy, and the color is spot on perfection. Oh, it smells nice too. Since it’s sheer, it can be worn alone or be layered on top of a favorite color. I actually have been liking it layered on top of liquid lipstick & it’s been lasting so much longer.
If there’s one splurge lipstick out there, this is mine. Click here to get or gift yours.
