My hubby isn’t one of those guys that cares too much about what I wear, about my hair, or my makeup. I mean, when I get a new haircut he’ll say it looks good, but when it comes to makeup, he likes pretty much everything. As long as I’m happy, he’s fine with it! And he’s seen me in just about everything too, because in September we’ll be hitting our 23rd Wedding Anniversary! That’s a lot of years of makeup and lipstick shades!
But there’s one shade of lipstick he’s never seen me wear, and that’s a nude lipstick. Yup-I’ve NEVER found a nude lipstick that looked good on me. I don’t mean a MLBB nude, I mean a real nude. But remember when I told you about how my hubby picked up Tom Ford Frantic Pink Blush last month in Chicago for me? Well, that’s not all he picked up! He also brought home my first really nude lipstick, Tom Ford Nude Vanille:
Tom Ford Nude Vanille swatches on the peachy side on me, but I have seen it look more beige or pinker on different skin tones. I like pairing it with Dior Lip liner in Linen, because that helps make it more of a pale pinky-beige on my lips:
The first time I wore Tom Ford Nude Vanille, my hubby actually noticed.
Terry:”New lipstick? ”
Tracy: “Yup! It’s the one you picked up for me in Chicago.”
Terry: “Cool colour. Looks good on you.”
I’ve been wearing Tom Ford Nude Vanille a lot since then, so, when I found out we were supposed to get our better halves to choose what shade of lipstick they like for this post, I knew he’d choose it. After 23 years together, you just KNOW, ya’ know? 🙂
I never thought I’d love a nude lipstick as much as this one! It’s perfection, and I know I’m teasing you all with yet another Tom Freakin’Ford Lipstick, but honestly I think they are my absolute favourite formulas: creamy, pigmented, and long-lasting. The ones that I have I wear ALL the time, so for me they’re worth it! Especially when someone actually notices and says something after 23 years!
