Tom Ford’s Fifty Shades
Posted on 25 November 2014
The gorgeous Tom Ford is forging ahead in the cosmetic world with the release of his 50 miniature lipsticks named after the men in his life, and called Lips & Boys.
People carry teeny-tiny little bags today, and are trying to fit their iPhone, money and a keys etc, so you need to be able to fit a lipstick into that small space. There’s a trend these days to miniaturise things.
From early on in his career Ford has been interested in beauty products and it’s now 10 years on since he first announced he was heading into the industry under his own name.
Lips & Boys offers 10 shade ranges in a base of soda seed extract, Brazilian murmur butter and chamomile flower oil. Thirty-six are new shades; 10 are from Velvet Suede, Ford’s current seasonal colour story, and four are from previous seasons. Each clutch-size lipstick will retail for $32. The lipsticks can also be packaged in sets of any three hues in the collection.And yes Tom has tried them all personally, saying“You need to see how it feels, if your lips stick together, if it feels waxy or great, how your lips feel when you take it off.”
