Tom Ford Cherry Lush Lipstick

Tom Ford Cherry Lush Tom Ford Cherry Lush Lipstick
Just over two weeks ago I attended the Perfecting Beauty Event at Selfridges Birmingham whereby after a pure stroke of luck I found myself coming away with a sample of the Tom Ford Lipstick in the shade Cherry Lush. This was for me like finding the sack of money at the end of a rainbow as whilst I had being gazing at the beautiful products at the Tom Ford counter I did feel as though they were out of my price range, therefore on the night I didn't go for anything despite so many things catching my eye.

I'll start off with the price of this lipstick which is for me more often than not the determining factor in whether I end up buying something or sadly putting it back. At £37 these are the most expensive lipsticks that I have personally ever come across. They are without a doubt something that I would have to think long and hard about and then some before I handed over my cash. Quickly getting over that painful fact let's move onto the lipstick itself where as you can see the packaging and shade is pretty divine. A black case with gold outlining detail along with an embossed TF on the top of the lid makes this certainly stand out against my other lipsticks. 

When you initially look at this in the bullet it does come across as quite a vampire red (if that makes sense) however on the lips it really does have more of a cherry tone to it as the name suggests. There are pink tones coming through this quite strongly when applied onto my lips which makes it very unique to the other red shades that I have within my collection; of course lipsticks can and do tend to look different on everyone so it's always worth trying out in store, particularly if you're thinking of buying an expensive product.

I can quite categorically say that this transfers onto cups very easily and doesn't seem to hold up well against chocolate spread on toast, however in the defence of the lipstick I wasn't very patient as I had my toast within ten minutes of applying this. After around three hours on me the intensity of the shade does wear down however wear is very even and it still looks really nice if I do say so myself. Pigmentation as you would expect with such a product is truly incredible and application is nothing short of a dream. The creamy texture enhanced by soja seed extract, chamomillia flower oil and Brazilian murumuru butter makes this one of the nicest textures that I have tried thus far.

Overall I have to say that yes I'm now hooked on this lipstick, but as to whether I would go out and spend just shy of £40 on one that is still left to be said. There is no denying that it is beautiful and makes me feel oh so special when I use it yet I know deep down that I don't think I can justify it just yet, especially when my lipstick stash is already somewhat out of control.

  3. That is such a beautiful, beautiful shade.. it looks amazing on you Amy. The packaging is incredible, but I just don't think I could stomach paying £36 for a lipstick! If I did, I don't think I'd be able to bring myself to use it x x x

  8. This red looks gorgeous on you! I love it with your fair hair :) I must agree, and I don't think I could fork out that much for a lipstick - even if I had the money. So lucky that you got a sample though!

  12. I've always wanted to try a Tom Ford lipstick, they look so luxurious. The price tag definitely puts me off though, I'm not sure I could justify spending that much.

  14. This is beautiful, both the actual lipstick and on you! Shame it suffered after the chocolate spread on toast, I feel that should be a standard testing criteria for lip products haha :)

  16. I do love a good red lipstick, and it is a gorgeous colour - looks lovely on you!

    I don't know if I could bring myself to do it! I just don't wear lipstick enough to justify it... Although that colour really is lovely!

    Em | Hmm maybe...

  17. Oh man it's so beautiful, really does suit you. It's just so much for a lipstick but I guess every girl should have one special lipstick in her collection, slightly disappointing to hear about the colour transfer

  21. Thank you so much Celina! The price is indeed terrifying , I totally understand. I don't think I can buy anything from there just yet, it's way too much for one item for me xx

  22. Thank you Gemma, the packaging is so beautiful isn't it, it's so classic. I completely agree, maybe in the future I could justify it as a treat for something special but at the moment it's not possible xx

  23. Oh I will have to look up that shade and have a nosy! They are expensive but it's all swing and round abouts isn't it in the end xx

  27. Thank you Tasha :) Yes I was super lucky indeed as there was no way I could spend this much on one item at the moment xx

  28. Oh wow! I haven't tried any of those brands, the highest end I have before this is Bobbi Brown. I'd love to try a lipstick from Chanel. Thank you SO much! xx

  29. It sure is I agree, the products all look gorgeous xx

  30. I know I feel the same way Jordan, if it wasn't for this sample I would still be wanting to try one. It is a gorgeous lipstick that's for sure xx

  31. Shucks, thank you so much! xx

  32. I'm now going to set all my lipstick tests against that particular method ;) Thanks Jess! xx

  33. You certainly can't ignore the price tag but yes it is a gorgeous lipstick. Thank you :) xx

  34. I think that is what it boils down to half the time, will you wear it enough to warrant paying so much. Personally for myself I wouldn't, as much as I like it I think it would end up being a waste of money. This little sample will last me ages! xx

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thank you! It transferred a lot to be fair but most lipsticks that are so bright and bold such as these always do in my experience. I agree we should all have one special lipstick :) xx

  36. Thank you Brenda :) I know, they are super expensive!! xx

  37. This is just the shade of read I love, especially on others as I find so hard to wear red myself! But on you it surely looks gorgeous. I know what you mean about too expensive products... I end up purchasing those when I have 20% as Sephora which for expensive products is quite a big discount but they don't sell everything unfortunately. xx
