Black Orchid. This post ought to be titled (Tom Ford’s) Black Orchid meets (MAC Cosmetics’) Azealia Bank’s limited edition lipstick (in Yung Rapunxel). But that was simply just impossibly long.
But this brought me to ponder if I was overcomplicating the situation somewhat.
You see, both lipsticks fall rather perfectly into this fall’s vampy trend (and Black Orchid has been my staple night lipstick since last winter). But since my purchase of Azealia Bank’s “deep plum” (as described), I cannot help but think that these two lipsticks were meant to be (worn together). You know, as in lipstick soul-mates.
I like to think that Yung Rapunxel adds a certain ‘brightness’ which Black Orchid lacks. But you simply just cannot beat the consistency of Mr. Ford’s genius.
So here I was, all excited about my (incredible!)(and totally original!)(and super smart!) discovery, when I thought to ask the parental unit (aka my beloved mom) if she could tell the difference.
“Not really…” she said after some deliberation.
So there we go, my vampy lipstick marriage is one of those things that (while it might not be too obvious to the naked eye) makes a difference simply just because I know about it.
p.s. amidst the ramble did you notice that my Black Roses drawing is printed on the t? Cool no?
