I seriously could not resist Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in Pussycat. I wanted something other than a red, a more wearable color and the name simply said buy me. I think my Lady Snow agrees with me too.
Pussy Cat is a mauve pink. It has enough colour so it does not wash me out. It is a very easy colour to wear.
When compared with Black Dahlia, Pussy Cat is a much easier colour to wear. still prep my lips with my lip balm but I did not bother to exfoliate my lips. The finish is a semi matte finish. It is creamy and opaque. The best part, it reapplies beautifully unlike Black Dahlia which became darker with every application.
Out of the three colours, I find Pussycat to be the least fussy to apply and a really joy to wear. It felt comfortable and did not dry out my lips. Black Dahlia and Velvet Cherry are stunning shades, they however need more care when applying. If you want a slap and go colour, I definitely suggest Pussy Cat but if you love jewelled colors and don't mind putting in a little more effort, Black Dahlia and Velvet Cherry are worth that effort.
The price tags for these pretties are steep though. I bet you can find equally stunning shades for less but it is Tom Ford. The price tag comes with a luxurious mahogany looking lip casing.

As an added bonus, I pulled out my other Tom Ford Lip Color Indian Rose for a comparison. As you can see Pussycat is more mauvey whereas Indian Rose has a more warm tone to it.
