Tom Ford Matte Lip Color in First Time...A MUST for Peachy Pink Nude Lip Lovers

Above: Tom Ford Matte Lipstick in "First Time," where have you been all my life?  The swatch on the right represents a single pass.
I am currently in the midst of travel and, while I gave myself the day off to embrace a bit of decompressing, I am finding myself completely unable to refrain from posting about the new Tom Ford Matte Lipstick (most shades initially swatched HERE) in "First Time." This peachy pink nude wonder is extremely pigmented and imparts a soft color on the lips that works for a nude look while still drenching the lips in color. 

The matte formula, while not ultra hydrating (what matte is?), is not drying, even for someone who suffers from a perennially parched pout! I adore this shade and, since it is limited edition, beseech you, dear readers who love pinky peach lips as much as I do, to pick it up while its still available. I will try to do a closeup review soon...in the meanwhile, I hope the images inspire you to check this gem out! 

Kindly scroll on for more images and the Bottom Line...

Bottom Line: This LE lipstick (currently available at Neiman Marcus) is a MUST for those of us enchanted with soft, full coverage pinky peach nudes...so much so that I ordered a backup! Get this.

**I've been told by my readers that First Time is now almost sold out online except at Bergdorf Goodman...I would keep checking for replenishment.  However, in the meanwhile, I suggest giving Reena at Neiman Marcus Chicago (312/241-7189) or Trang at Neiman Marcus Fashion Island (949/759-1900) to see if they have any in stock.  Both are totally lovely to deal with and make phone ordering a breeze!

**UPDATE as of 11/4/14...First Time is still available at Bergdorf Goodman

Let them know the Beauty Professor sent you ; ) 

Much more soon...xx,

  2. Learned of the new TF matte formula and grabbed a handful from Neiman's without waiting for review :) This was one of my picks as well. It looks amazing and I can't wait to receive my goodies. I have desert lips and so it is nice to learn this formula is at least not drying. Hoping you are enjoying your decompression, Rachel. Your locale looks positively dreamy.

    1. Glad you were able to pick some up, Wendy...they seem to be flying off of the shelves at this point! Let me know what you think when you get them!

      Thanks for your sweet words about my trip...off to go play croquet (!) with my husband. This should be interesting ; ) I'll take a few pictures!

      xoxo and talk soon,

  3. As I'm always checking Tom Ford @ Neiman Marcus online, I purchased First Time as soon as it popped up. I too have terribly dry lips. I think I own one of every balm on the market. What I find works really well is to apply a scant amount of ChapStick Moisturizer Hydration Lock first. It makes my beautiful First Time more comfortable and protects my lips.

  4. First Time looks beautiful on you! I'm kinda liking that new Nars foundation too- anxious for your review. My order from Neimans for First Time came in pronto last week- but I haven't tested it yet- might have to give it a go now tho. Thanks for the great pics!

  5. I have to tell you First Time is the best lippie I have ever seen you model... it was made for you! So GORGEOUS!! I finally got to a Tom Ford counter and bought Casablanca... I tried Sable smoke and Vanilla suede and they looked horrible on me... too orange.. corpse like..... Do you think this would be too orange for me?? So Happy for you on this shade :) Cathy

    1. Wow...what an amazing compliment...thank you, Cathy!!

      This is a warmer pink nude but definitely not as "orange" as Sable Smoke and not as pale as Vanilla Suede. Truly a unique shade and I think you would like it...consider it a much lighter version of Casablanca!

      Hope you can track it down...xo,

    1. Hi Angeline,

      Thanks and my pleasure! I find that First Time is a bit lighter in depth than LMdB Amore. Both are gorgeous matte options for healthy, flushed lips!

      Hope that helps!
