Tom Ford Lipsticks - Black Orchid and Pink Adobe

To treat myself for the Holidays, I decided to indulge in 2 Tom Ford Lipsticks: Black Orchid and Pink Adobe (3g; $48).  The Tom Ford website reads, "To Tom Ford, there is no more dramatic accessory than a perfect lip. It is the focus of the face and it has the power to define a woman’s whole look. Each lip color is Tom Ford’s modern ideal of an essential makeup shade. Rare and exotic ingredients including soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil create an ultracreamy texture with an incredibly smooth application. Specially treated color pigments are blended to deliver pure color with just the right balance of luminosity."

Black Orchid is a deep berry shade that is perfect for the holidays.

Pink Adobe is a medium mauve/nude shade that is a 
nice neutral shade that is perfect for everyday.  To me, it's a "my lips but better" shade.

Overall rating: Booyah! for quality and pigmentation as well as texture though they are pricey.  It is a very luxurious lipstick if ever you want to treat yourself to a high-end lipstick.

Have you tried any Tom Ford lipsticks?  What shades do you recommend?
