Lip Service

Tom Ford— former Gucci designer, perfumer, and auspicious director- with his first film debut “A Single Man” in 2009–has launched his new Private Blend Lip Color Collection. Is there anything Tom can’t do?

The Private Blend Lip Collection will be his interpretation of 12 classic colors re-imagined in a “modern and authoritative way.” The shades range from a bare nude to a bright cherry red. This luxurious lipstick is formulated with exotic ingredients like soja seed extract and Brazilian murumuru butter (sounds exotic enough to me!), these are some of the key ingredients that give it a creamy texture and smooth application.

Something tells me history is going to repeat itself, the launch of the Tom Ford Estee Lauder Collection in 2005 drew record-breaking crowds to the Saks flagship in NYC and needless to say the limited edition make-up quickly sold out as well. The chic exterior of The Private Collection Lip Collection is enough to draw any girl into a Tom Ford cosmetics counter- it comes in an ivory case with gold details and it’s like a shiny toy that I have to get my hands on.

The Private Blend Lip Collection will be available stateside on June 1st at Neiman Marcus, Saks and Bergdorf Goodman. What’s the price to pay for luxurious lips? $45 a tube–to some a splurge but well worth it if it’s within your fashion budget.
