"Give a woman lipstick and she's fine. But give a woman high-end lipstick and she will love you to the moon and back"- TheFabZilla, lipstick- obsessed.

Still part of my holiday presents, Tom Ford 03 Casabalanca maybe the next nude lipstick you're looking for. Let me elaborate.

But see, nude is both relative and subjective. While I see Casablanca as neutral, some of you may argue and say that it's dark and to some extent, bold. For the record, Casabalanca appears mauve-rose on my lips but I've read some blogs describing it plum or nude pink. Must be the lips' pH? You bet. Is debate necessary to substantiate a real nude or can we all have a truce and say that neutral can be reproduced in hundred and one shades?

Chill woman, look at you and your classic analysis paralysis; and you complain what a complicated life you have? haha!




Casablanca, as with the rest of Tom Ford lipsticks, is housed in a dark brown tube with gold trimming. It is slightly shiny sans the tacky feel. It is opaque in one pass with commendable five-hour wear time. It's also moisturizing so applying lip balm underneath is not necessary. It has a hint of vanilla scent, kinda like MAC but more mature if you get what I mean.

I don't know about you but each time I wear neutral lipstick, I feel innocent, demure and overall wholesome. In my dreams!

Do you feel the same way when wearing neutrals?

    1. Thanks much Judy! I used to feel the same way about my high-end lippies, wear 'em only for special occasions. But everything changed now, I want to feel/look special everyday so high-end it is most of the time, hahaha!

  4. Hmm, it certainly does seem to have a little bit of plum to it, but I can't see that hue on your lips at all. It must have something to do with lip pigmentation and ph like you said. Beautiful color, nonetheless!
