Tom Ford Black Orchid Lipstick

My very first Tom Ford makeup!! 
I have been lusting over this lip color for over a year now and I decided to finally get it when I heard they might stop making this color (not sure if its true or not but I was not taking any chances).
Black Orchid is a beautiful dark berry type of color and the application of this baby feels so luxurious just like the packaging.
Although I am in love with Tom Ford Beauty packaging, the prices are pretty hefty so I do not think I will be buying any more lipsticks. I do plan however to get 1 blush and the contouring palette but that is where it ends.  
The best thing is that I know how to depot lipsticks and switch their tubes so once this lipstick runs out I will keep the packaging and just place another lipstick of mine into its place :)

I will say when I first swatched the lipstick it reminded me so much of MAC's Dark Deed lipstick which was a limited edition lipstick.  
As you can see below they are very very close, but Black Orchid seems to have more red in it. But honestly if you really do not study it so hard people would probably think it was the same lipstick.  So if you have Dark Deed and was thinking about getting Black Orchid, I say you don't need it unless you're in it for the Tom Ford name and packaging.
