♥ Tom Ford Violet Fatale

Tom Ford Lip Color 17 Violet Fatale 

I am so excited to share today's review of this gorgeous Tom Ford lipstick. I got it a bit over a month ago and I now feel that I have worn it enough to give you guys a good review. It is £36 from the Harrod's website  (direct link) and the delivery was really quick. 
See the other Tom Ford products they have.

As you can see, the packaging looks so amazing. The case is pretty heavy and made of a glass like material. The colour of the case is black but is slightly transparent and gives a hint of a burgundy shade in certain lights.

I was definitely excited about this particular shade, a gorgeous purple/plum autumn colour! However I have to say that the actual colour when swatching or wearing it is slightly different being lighter, and slightly more fuchsia rather than purple- it is still a gorgeous shade! The staying power is very good with about 3-4 hours and longer if you don't eat or drink anything. When the shade starts to wear off there will still be some colour on your lips, sort of like a lip stain.

These particular lip sticks come in 20 shades in total, so there are 19 other shades to chose from with many pinks, nudes and reds. See all the shades here. 
 Now to the most important part (at least according to me). Amazing ingredient list. Well, it is really long but from what I can tell it's filled with quite a few great ingredients. Castor Oil is at the very top and in the middle after the waxes there are loads of nourishing oils, extracts and butters such as Soja Bean extract, Camomile flower oil and Shea Butter.

Ingredients Check NO= (/), YES= (√) :

  • Mineral Oil (/)
  • Silicones (/)
  • Parabens (/)

I absolutely love this guys- everything from the packaging to the creamy formula.
Has anyone tried this, and what do you think of the shade?
