Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection Swatches

Mr Ford is determined to tempt us further with 50 shades of lipsticks in mini “clutch-friendly” versions of his signature black and gold tubes. 

Tom Ford’s Lips & Boys Collection appeals to our need to “have more than one” - be it boys or lipsticks - and was first launched for a limited time in the US during Black Friday. If you didn’t manage to grab any, don’t worry. They launch 2 Jan in Singapore and will be on sale for 2 months, until end-Feb 2015. 

The 50 shades include 36 new colors, and 14 which are re-released limited editions or bestsellers (bracketed names in images above). This means if there are discontinued favorites that you can’t get hold of anymore, you have a chance to stock up during this time.

My 3 Faves?

Ironically the shades I was most attracted to were all re-released classics. I love Adriano (True Coral) and Rafael too, but the below 3 are just colors I know I will wear often. 

  1. Addison - soft flattering pink-based beige; the antithesis to corpse-nude. This is Pink Dusk renamed.
  2. Cooper - classic fuchsia pink with subtle iridescence. This is Pure Pink renamed.
  3. Leonardo - deep cool-toned cherry red with subtle shimmer. This is Smoked Red renamed.

The Lips & Boys collection retails for SGD50 per tube in Singapore, and purchasing 3 will get you a collectible lipstick box in Tom Ford’s signature cocoa and gold.

Not cheap by any means, but ultra-chic for sure.

If you already use Tom Ford but aren’t ready to commit to more full-size tubes in case they sit in your drawer for ages, you can pick up a few Lips & Boys shades and explore more colors just in time for the festive Spring season!
