“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!

    LOVE this on you! I do feel differently about my expensive lippies. I own a couple Chanels, and they are like my precious babies I pull out for special things lol

      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!

    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!

    I don't know about innocent but that lipstick looks hot on you. I love berry shades.

      hahaha! Even my hub laughs every time I use that term. I can't even convince him that I used to be shy.

    Neutral is relative. 😉 I always feel very grown up and with it when I wear neutrals.

  6. January 27, 2014 / 5:00 pm

    If that doesn't become your go-to lippie, I think you're missing out!!! 🙂

      I know, it's so hard to pick the real go-to with all these lipsticks surrounding me, haha!

    Gorgeous color, but I'm not a fan of Tom Ford as a brand!

  8. January 27, 2014 / 5:17 pm

    Casablanca is hot on you!

  9. January 27, 2014 / 6:42 pm

    This is so pretty on you! I love Tom Ford lippies!

  10. January 27, 2014 / 7:18 pm

    I'm not sure I feel wholesome or innocent when I wear neutrals, but I do feel more "polished" in general.
    Casablanca is so pretty!

      Thanks Rach. Now that term innocent is cracking me up.

    Girl, you are killing me with all your high end lippies lately!
