If I have to be honest, being a blogger is probably the worst thing to have happened to my bank balance. Bloggers are just such enablers and when you are constantly reading blogs, checking instagram, twitter, pinterest etc etc, it’s hard not to want to do a teeny tiny bit of shopping. A little while ago, I saw a selfie posted online with ‘Tom Ford Flame‘ as the caption and I could’t quite shake it out of my mind for weeks! It’s an awesome colour but Tom Ford’s make up is just eye wateringly expensive. After contemplating the purchase for a while, I finally bit the bullet when Selfridges had a 10% beauty sale. I cringe at the amount I paid for it but guys, it’s such a stunning matte colour. It sat on my desk for about a week before I mustered up the courage to smudge the TF that’s stamped across the bullet (and er, also because I needed to photograph it in daylight – blogger problems huh?). It smells awesome and a little like MAC’s vanilla scent but even better. It’s buildable and I’ve worn it slightly sheer to super red like in these pics – so it’s pretty versatile. Please excuse my messy hair in these photos but it’s pretty rare for me to post these kind of shots of my face on the blog. I don’t usually like a close up (shudder) but it’s hard to talk about a lipstick and not show it in action…well here goes nothing eh?
