Another Vamp Lipstick Post: Tom Ford Black Orchid
Certain lipsticks are iconic. Chanel Red, Mac Ruby Woo and now Tom Ford Black Orchid. They need no description. Most beauty lovers know the shade whether they have seen it in person or not. The lipsticks evoke images of the beauties who wore them and wearing them leaves us feeling chic, sophisticated and dramatic. Who doesn't want to feel that?
I fully embrace the vamp lipstick trend which seems to come every autumn/ winter. I felt a surge of excitement when I saw the color on several celebrities during this year's Met Gala in the summer. I love how it looks goth but in a modern way. I love vamp shades on everyone- from the palest of skins to the deepest. I love the complexity of Black Orchid- it is a little bit wine, and a little bit blackened burgundy. You already know how I feel about the Tom Ford Lipstick formula- by far my favorite. Black Orchid is no exception.
Vamp lipsticks are the perfect winter time alternative to red. It is something different but equally as powerful. There are so many gorgeous vamp lipsticks available now at every price point. My advice is to pick one up in your favorite lipstick formula. If you don't mind a splurge then get Tom Ford's Black Orchid- it will leave you feeling bold and sensuous.
