|Tom Ford Lip Color in Wild Ginger|
No matter how strongly I was drawn to Wild Ginger, it was nonetheless a little bit painful to fork over the $49 for this product. But, after seeing it on a vast number of beautiful bloggers, I wanted to get my little paws on it, pricetag be damned! Undoubtedly, there are other red orange lipsticks out there. But there is something about the clean, minimal, and almost masculine Tom Ford packaging that won me over. I'd also been wanting to try out the formula to see if it truly warranted the high price.

I don't know how this formula does it, but it manages to feel both creamy and light at the same time. Because of this, my lips don't feel smothered when I wear it, despite its opaque coverage. It feels like they can breathe, if you know what I mean! The color is certainly bold and it takes a bit of confidence to wear. I think I notice people staring at my lips a lot when I wear this, but I also definitely notice that I receive a ton of compliments. It really is a shade that demands attention, but in a 'look how effortlessly chic and cool I am' way, not in a 'dear god, her lips look insane' sort of way (at least, that's how I feel about it!)
Given the fact that I, being cool toned and fair, can get away with wearing this lipstick, I have a hard time imagining who couldn't pull this off. When I wear Wild Ginger, I keep the rest of my makeup warm and neutral, so as to not compete with my bold lips. There's something a bit French about it, n'est-ce pas?
