Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipstick in “Alasdhair” is described as a rich blackened orchid. Although the shade is beautiful, it applies unevenly and sticks to dry spots on my lips. I found this shade wore best if I blotted my lips after application. This allows “Alasdhair” to leave a subtle vampy stain behind. Honestly, I had higher expectations for this $32 miniature lipstick. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
