Another best from TF! Love this colour on my NC30 Indian skin. This is nude for me, a delicious browny peachy colour - my lips only better kind of thing. Very moisturizing and long lasting. 5 stars.
Casablanca is a really flattering color on me. I have fair skin and dark hair. It's dark enough to have impact, but the color is not jarring or harsh. The feel is very creamy and hydrating, plus the lasting power is nice. I like the packaging too.
Ok, would I buy this color again? No, but I am addicted to Tom Ford lipsticks. I bought Casablanca, and wore it all evening. It turned dark and murky and reddish on me. Could be me, but when I went to return it the SA said that others have had the same problem with this color so it was no surprise. I exchanged it for 3 more lip pies - bad bad girl - because I love the staying power and masking color of his collection. I just picked the wrong color - actually, the female SA liked Pink Dust better and the male liked this one so I chose this one - next time, go with what I like from now on!
I got so excited when I saw this product. Just returned from London and Harrods had a huge Tom Ford display. Anyway what a waste of money and energy on my part. The lipstick is very pricey and ws not a big deal at all. I don;t think it was a big hit in the higher end stores.
So after reading all I could on MUA and even watching a few make-up reviews on YouTube I decided to splurge on one of Tom Fords new Private Blend lipsticks.
The Tom Ford products are outrageously priced here in Australia - $65 for a lipstick! Ouch!
Anyway - the sales lady at David Jones talked me into 03 Casablanca and I have to admit whilst the packaging is amazing and the product is good - nicely pigmented, good amount of sheen but not too much and a reasonable stay on time - I just don't think it's worth $65.
Perhaps I just got talked into the wrong colour? Not sure - but at least this expensive experience has stopped me from having a ridiculously over-priced TF lipstick addiction.
I'll stick to my Bobbi Brown and NARS lipsticks which just seem to suit me better - especially my hip pocket!
I talked myself into buying this despite the horrifying price, and I'm not sorry. It is just gorgeous. The color is flattering and the formula is moisturizing without being greasy. I think the color would look good on a wide variety of skin tones.
What I really love is that it makes my 58-year-old lips, which are still pretty full but not like they were when I was younger, look beautiful and even lush. I would happily buy again, if it ever runs out!
I love, love this lipstick. The colour looks extremely flattering for my skin tone. The texture is so rich and moisturing. I had 2 older version (white tubes) of TF lipsticks and this is the first new formula I bought. I can definitely see the difference in texture. The newer ones are richer and velvety. So far I love every TF item that I have tried. Just wish the line wasn't this expensive...oh well. Would buy again!
This is truly an exceptional lipstick. I deliberated between three shades, all of which seemed (based on my monitor color) in the same family, but with differing levels of intensity/darkness: Casablanca (the darkest), Indian Rose and Pink Dusk. I chose Casablanca because I was worried the others would be too pale; in fact, I thought Casablanca would end up pretty pale as well! What I'm forgetting based on my limited experience with TF cosmetics (I have one other lipstick, an eye shadow palette which I just tried today for the first time, an eyeliner and a blush which I haven't tried yet) is that they are super super pigmented! It doesn't take much layering/swiping to get a full application of color. One wipe of the lipstick completely saturates your lip with the color as it is seen in the tube. It's really outstanding. The texture is creamy and smooth, the finish is not shiny, but has a healthy sheen (not matte at all), and there is a mild vanilla scent (but no taste) reminiscent of MAC lipsticks. Based on my one other TF lipstick I know these last really well - I haven't used Casablanca enough yet to know how long it can last, but imagine it will be several hours. It's interesting how this lipstick, and another favorite of similar price (Guerlain Rouge G) are both similarly priced, but the Rouge G has such a hefty case with mirror, and this is just a plasticy case. However, although made of plastic, it still has a very nice feel and the plastic feels more reminiscent of enamel than cheap plastic. I would definitely recommend this line of lipsticks, and would personally like to pick up a few more.
