I know that many of you by far prefer lipsticks to lip glosses, but Tom Ford makes to die for lip glosses that will even make those with an aversion to lip glosses take a second (or third) look. These luxurious twinkling gems boast superb pigmentation, semi-opaque to opaque coverage, long wear time, and are exceptionally comfortable on the lips.
According to Tom Ford Beauty, their Ultra Shine Lip Gloss is, "A high-shine, color-saturated gloss designed to achieve bold and glamorous lips. Its smooth and creamy texture has a high adherence and easy comfort. It can be worn alone or layered over Tom Ford lip color to add dimension to the lips."
I must confess that I am delighted by this beautiful gloss, and the formula is superb. It is so comfortable on the lips that I reach for it quite often, and the color is just extraordinary for the season. Love Bruise is gorgeous alone or on top of your favorite plummy lipsticks. It truly is a thing of beauty.
The brush applicator does have a tendency to extract more gloss than I need for a single application- therefore I do try to minimize waste by scraping it against the side of the tube while removing the wand. The wand itself is quite long permitting you to scrape the last bits from the bottom of the tube unlike many lip glosses.
Isn't Love Bruise gorgeous?!
