Review: Tom Ford Lip Color in Bruised Plum

I’ve been hearing people rave about Tom Ford lipstick long enough now that I finally decided I had to at least give it a try.

As always, the reviews are based entirely on the merits of the products themselves. When I heard about YSL Glossy Stains, I was intrigued. There have been times that I wanted a super-shiny lip color, but I’m not a fan of products that slide all around my lips the way so many glossy lipsticks do. Lipgloss is even worse – it’s always sticky, wears off  ...
