Tom Ford Lipstick in Casablanca

Yes, another over-priced luxury lipstick to add to my collection. While away in Amsterdam, we stumbled across a department store called ‘de Bijenkorf’, which was comparable to Selfridges. They stocked designer brands and had the most beautiful marble topped makeup counters.

Everyone knows that holiday money is like Monopoly money, so I decided to splurge on the last day of the trip, on a Tom Ford Lipstick.

Unlike my usual shopping trips, I hadn’t pre-researched shades or Googled swatches so I went in blind and relied on the consultant to help me choose. I picked up Spanish Pink, one I’d heard Sabrina, from A Little Obsessed, rave about but it was so pale on my porcelain skin. I opted for something with a little more colour, after trying a few I took the shade ‘Casablanca’ to the till.

It’s a pretty muted rose, plum shade, which suits me wonderfully. The formula is high quality, of course you would expect this from Tom Ford, and it’s a light and comfortable lipstick to wear. It doesn’t last as long as a liquid lip or my MAC Russian Red matte lipstick but it has a few hours of opaque wear.

I want to use this lipstick as a blog photo prop all the time thanks to its classic black and gold packaging. It even has that satisfying click when you close it, a tell-tale sign of an expensive lipstick.
Was it worth the money, you ask? I’m very glad I finally have a Tom Ford lipstick in my stash but I wouldn’t rush to buy every shade and formula. It’s a lovely treat but not a necessity.

Have you tried Tom Ford Lipsticks before?  



  1. What a beautiful shade! I have Indian Rose and I absolutely adore it, everything about it is perfect for me, from the shade, formula and packaging. I definitely want to extend my collection and Casablanca could well be my next purchase, as it looks lovely!
