Happy Monday lippy lovers! So what lipstick are you wearing today?
You know I’m easily swayed by unique and opulent packaging. So when I learned that Tory Burch Beauty is now available at Nordstrom, I immediately ordered the one and only lipstick shade up for sale, Pas Du Tout 01.
I mean, look at this temptress clad in orange and gold!
If this tube was a woman walking down the street, I bet you she will command thousand and one head turns #womancrush
But is she like one of those women having “all pizzaz sans substance”? Let’s scope her out.
Pas Du Tout 01 ($32, 0.1 oz/3 g) is described as “a universally-flattering sheer pinky nude with faint shimmer and creamy texture”. It is subtly fragrant (notes derived from Tory Burch perfume featuring mandarin, grapefruit and cassis). According to the website, it’s a phrase often said by Tory’s father, which is the French version of “she loves me, she loves me not” daisy petal-pulling game.
The skinny. It wowed me but only for a moment. If you are looking for boldness, Pas Du Tout is too frail for you. If you’re looking for creaminess, Pas Du Tout isn’t made for you. Unfortunately, she’s that woman garbed in opulence but lacking in personality. Or better yet, consider her your high school classmate who attracts all the boys just because she’s pretty, and that’s it.
Pas Du Tout is more like a nude lip butter. I had to swipe three times to make it noticeable. The wear time is negligible because you can hardly see anything. But see I am your acne-laden classmate who doesn’t give up on failed chemistry experiments. Applied over a nude or beige lip liner, Pas Du Tout came out quite decent. Meaning, enough for me to keep than return it with absolute disappointment. On a positive note, it’s moisturizing so if you’re up for some fancy lip balm, then Pas Du Tout is the new pretty girl in school you’re dying to meet.
Say hi to Pas Du Tout.
Do you have a classmate like Pas Du Tout?
I do and chances are, she might be reading this, haha!
