YEAH! I am so happy that Tom Ford Cosmetics is now available at de Bijenkorf. As you might have guessed, I couldn’t resist to pay the Tom Ford counter a visit and offcourse I had to buy myself a little something. I was looking for something to spend my money on a new matte lipstick, and I fell in love imediately with the Tom Ford ‘Velvet Violet Matte Lip color (€48)‘. It is no secret that I love almost everything from Tom Ford. Velvet Violet is a very unique shade with a creamy texture and is considered very pigmented. When I say pigmented I mean really pigmented because I need to remove this lip color with a very good make-up remover otherwise my lips wil remain stained. I am talking about a deep purple/berry lipstick with a fuchia undertone. A beautiful and unique color that compliments my skintone and make my face pop. Tom Ford explained on his website that the matte lipcolors have a velvet matte finish and I totally agree with this statement. The matte lip colors from Tom Ford are not matte like the name might suggest I would say that the lip color has a velvet finish instead of a matte finish. This lipstick doesn’t feel drying on my lips atall but I would still recommend to prep the lips with a lipbalm or lipprimer before applying the lip color. The matte lipsticks are also made with Soja Seed Extract and Brazilian Murumuru Butter. Muru Muru butter is highly moisturizing, the reason why Tom Ford Matte lip colors don’t feel dry on the lips. There is no need to use a lipliner because these lip colors don’t bleed. I prefer to apply matte lipcolors from the tube because I want that opaque finish/ the highest coverage possible.
So far, I am beyond happy with my new purchase. I am so happy that Bijenkorf Amsterdam stocks the brand because my wishlist is very long!
