FOTD: Statement Lip with Black Orchid

I had to go to a birthday party, in the rain, after a full day of running around… so I kept the makeup simple. The order of the day was a statement lip. So I chose Tom Ford’s Black Orchid to get the job done:

FACE
Tom Ford Traceless Foundation in Praline
Chanel Loose Powder (Dore)
Chanel Blush in Espleigle
EYES
Chanel Quad in Kaska Beige:
Light Beige from lashline to brow
Bronze in the crease
Armani Wateproof Pencil in Brown on the waterline
Rock & Republic Eyeshadows in Tribal and Fatalistic on the brows
Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara
LIPS
Tom Ford Lipstick in Black Orchid

Lip Service: Tom Ford Beauty (Black Orchid)

I decided to continue my Tom Ford Beauty indulgence with the most iconic member of the lipstick collection: Black Orchid.

I like the packaging much better on the new lipsticks. I also think that the tubes are more narrow, and easier to use. I found the original packaging cumbersome.

The color is just indescribable. As you can see, Black Orchid is not a ‘flat’ color. Rather, it’s a marbled mixture of cherry red, and a bit of violet. The result is chic… not goth.

 I found it creamy and highly moisturizing… and the color is just incredible.
