Beauty Counter Intelligence: Tom Ford Negligee Lipstick

Berry, berry good news

When it comes to fall, nothing tops the power of perfectly lined red lips. Still, some of us are still gun shy about wearing fire engine shades for day. Instead, get a tube of Tom Ford’s Lip Color in Negligee ($50) as your small indulgence. Made with vitamin-rich Brazilian Murumuru Butter to soften the lips without added stickiness, this vanilla-scented lipstick is quietly compelling. I love the deeply pigmented nude shade and its rich satin finish that I seriously think would work well with any hair color (I can tell you it’s flattering on me, and I’m a brunette). One other perk for the beauty efficient: it’s super emollient so you can skip the balm beforehand.
