I was totally swayed by the beautiful packaging. Please tell me I'm not the only one who has done something like this?

£65 shock

I can just about get my head around £20-odd.

Where was it from?

shock

Wow. Is it good?

BettyCrystal Sat 06-Aug-16 22:41:07

Tom Ford? What colour is it?

Graceflorrick Sat 06-Aug-16 22:41:26

That's an awfully expensive lipstick. Does it have magical powers? grin

JinkxMonsoon Sat 06-Aug-16 22:41:26

I probably would have done it in those halcyon days when I had plenty of disposable income.

But... how good was the packaging exactly? grin

Mumble29 Sat 06-Aug-16 22:41:28

shock what brand?!

Thingvellir Sat 06-Aug-16 22:41:31

Honestly, that is ridiculous. I've spent £20-odd before..,what lipstick was it?

KoalaDownUnder Sat 06-Aug-16 22:42:36

Well, obviously we need the brand. (Nosy)

And a photo of the packaging! shock

I bet it was Louboutin? I think the packaging looks a bit like a butt plug.

BuntyFigglesworthSpiffington Sat 06-Aug-16 22:45:00

I'll happily drop a few ££ on a Chanel lipstick or a few £££ on a Tom Ford lipstick but my inner frugalleer recoils in horror at the price of Louboutin's lippies.

mrsclooneytoyou Sat 06-Aug-16 22:46:01

blush I know! I just went crazy

MovingOnUpMovingOnOut Sat 06-Aug-16 22:49:56

I'm going to need some details <licks end of pencil>

tiffanysfanny Sat 06-Aug-16 22:54:26

Damn! The packaging looks good.

MountainDweller Sat 06-Aug-16 22:55:24

Oh it's beautiful! We need to see if it's a nice colour too though...!

I nearly spent £100 today on beauty stuff... There was a free gift blushblush but I got to the checkout and my code for the gift didn't work! So I backed away. Will probably still buy all the things but not in one go!

I loveeeee these louboutin lipsticks!!! Great choice winewink

Prive120 Sat 06-Aug-16 22:58:51

I admit I have one of these... It was a Christmas present for my wedding. I then bought myself the lip liner too. Pure madness.

They're good, but I keep going back to my Mac ruby woo as its smaller and easier to carry.

When you wear it, apply and blot 3-4 times to get a really solid colour. I found applying with a brush didn't make it stay on as well.

Glad I wasn't the only one suckered in wink

It's not just a lipstick, it's a thing of beauty.

Totally worth it. Beautiful designs.

BuntyFigglesworthSpiffington Sat 06-Aug-16 23:01:02

Meh.

I've never heard anyone say the actual lipstick itself is much good.

NoTractorsAtTheTable Sat 06-Aug-16 23:02:27

Oooooh <pupils dilate>

How does it feel when applied? Is it lovely, like being licked by angels, or is it dry (heaven forfend!) and needs a moisturising base coat? Does it flake?

I must know. Please describe. In detail. grin

Costacoffeeplease Sat 06-Aug-16 23:04:20

Definitely a butt plug

Did no-one tell them? confused

Mumble29 Sat 06-Aug-16 23:04:29

Oooooohhh that's a bit gorgeous! What colour did you get OP?

JinkxMonsoon Sat 06-Aug-16 23:05:34

I felt a bit meh about it, then I saw that it comes in a presentation box.

Now, you don't get that with Revlon.

Whatthefoxgoingon Sat 06-Aug-16 23:05:49

I hope the lippy is three times better than any other you have. I don't like the packaging at all. But it's your money, you're free to spend it exactly where you like.
