Racy promo pic with a heart stopping price to match?
The new Tom Ford lipsticks hit counters last week with a delightful price tag of £35 a pop.
When I first informed of their price tag from London MakeUp Girl, I let out a gasp and it wasn't of the orgasmic kind I can tell ya!
I'll be the first to hold my hand up and admit spending what some will consider obscene amounts on make up all in the name of vanity and obsession, but I just can't bring myself to part with £35 for a lippie. It's just not that serious. However I'd think nothing of spending £35 if I had at least five lipsticks to show for it!
Yeah, they look cute with the 'TF' stamp on the top and extravagant casing, the promo pic does its best to entice me, but doesn't leave me in such a daze that I feel the need to skip merrily down to Selfridges and part with three thousand and five hundred pennies for a lipstick.
So how much is too much? Where do you draw the line in your quest for the perfect lipstick, or any other cosmetic product for that matter? We all know that 'expensive' doesn't necessarily always mean better quality. Creme de la Mer face cream costs £530 for just 250ml, even though the ingredients allegedly cost just £25 and that has done little to deter its loyal fans.
Will you be paying a visit to the Tom Ford counter any time soon?
