Tom Ford Aphrodisiac



Tom Ford is a brand that screams high end luxury, with a range of visibly appealing products, made all the more tempting with decadent packaging. The downside to this? these perks come with a slightly ridiculous price tag (Aphrodisiac will set you back £36). But you really do get quality for your buck, which softens the blow a little.  
Iv'e longed to divulge in a guilty Tom Ford purchase, but with the hefty price tag, something needed to come along that would win me over (oh and the encouragement of a Fifi Lapin cosmetic bag). When I clapped eyes on this beautiful blue toned medium pink in all its mouth watering beauty, it was inevitable that I would fall for Aphrodisiac's charm. 
I could write an essay on the packaging, so lets talk about the product itself, with that even embossed with the Tom Ford logo (I will admit that im a little afraid of wearing it down). Aphrodisiac is seriously pigmented, and when applied to the lips is opaque in just one swipe. To top it off this beautiful pink has a lovely soft formula, which feels rather moisturising on the lips. 

Is Aphrodisiac beautiful? Certainly... Does it cause a makeup addict to go a little giddy at the knees? Definitely... But is it unique? NO (there are no doubt, similar, cheaper options out there). 
However if you fancy treating yourself to a high quality luxury lipstick that deserves to be showcased  at any given moment, then a Tom Ford lippie is for you! 
My only concern? Once you've tried one of these lipsticks you'll definitely want to try some more. 
Have you tried anything from Tom Ford?
