Earlier this year, fashion-designer-turned-filmmaker Tom Ford announced plans to conquer the beauty industry with his first-ever foray into cosmetics: a lip color collection titled Private Blend Lip Color. The new line features a dozen lush shades, each packaged in a chic ivory case with gold accents and the TF initial carved into the top of each lipstick bullet.
The color palette ranges from a surprising Black Orchid to an opulent Cherry Lush to a soft Vanilla Suede. Each color embodies Ford’s personal take on classic and universally flattering colors, reimagined by Ford in a “modern and authoritative” way to become “signature lip colors for the makeup connoisseur.”
While each color in the collection is $45 a pop, you can be assured of its luxury; each shade is formulated with exotic ingredients like soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomilla flower oil, intended to offer a smooth application and flawless finish. Still not convinced? As Ford himself says, there is “no more dramatic accessory than a perfect lip.” You heard it from the man himself.
The Tom Ford Private Blend Lip Color Collection is available at select department stores such as Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman.
