I Bought this beauty at Nordishka Kompaniet Stockholm. I was very happy to see that Stockholm carries a Tom Ford counter. I was looking for an eyebrow pencil when I ran into this beautiful shade wild ginger. Wild Ginger is a beautiful orange red (more hints of orange then red) with a glossy finish. Some consider it a red with a orange undertone but for me it looks more like orange.
I love a fresh orange lipstick, I mean who doesn’t? I have the ‘Lady Danger’ from MAC but I didn’t like the matte finish on me, it was very drying and it turned chalky on my lips. I don’t reach for it anymore because it is not a pretty sight when your lipstick looks al chalky and dry. The Tom Ford shade is lovely and very pigmented. The shade feels very creamy on my lips, almost like lipbalm. It has the TF print on the front so I prefer to use it from the back to avoid ruining the TF imprint. I need to say that Tom Ford lipsticks come with a very high pricetag (€48) but I believe that they are so worth it!
If I don’t want to retouch too often I use the MAC Prep and Prime Lip underneath to smooth out some lines and make the lipstick glide on effortlessly. If you want to pair this lipstick with a lipliner I would recommend: Laura Mercier Warm Poppy and or True Red. I cant recommend you some Tom Ford lipliners because Tom Ford doesn’t make lipliners (yet).
Overall I love this bright red/orange and I highly recommend it!
