I suspect this isn't one of the best shades for me -- perhaps a tad too orange -- unless I make sure my complexion is flawless, especially around the base of my nose and at the edges of my lips. Ruddy patches fight with bright lip shades, and the loser is the whole face.
Whether I can pull it off or not, Tom Ford Private Blend Lipstick in Ginger Fawn, $52, is amazing on warm-skinned blondes such as Tips' Rita Remark, who I spotted wearing it a couple of visits ago.
Staff wants to count this as a made-in-Canada post because Rita and Tips Nail Bar are both made in Canada. I'm mulling.
Tom Ford Private Blend Lipsticks are available at Holt Renfrew on Bloor St. in Toronto; call 416.922.2333 to order for delivery via post.
