If you thought Tom Ford would stop his foray into beauty products with his high-end fragrances, you were wrong. Fresh off the success of his film A Single Man, the former Gucci designer is launching a line of lipstick. The Private Blend Lip Color collection will be, in Tom's words, his interpretation of 12 classic colors."I took the most universally flattering colors that a woman can wear, and then I reimagined them in a modern and authoritative way," he told WWD.
Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bergdorf Goodman will carry Tom Ford lipstick when it launches Stateside on June 1. Each shade will come in a chic ivory and gold case, and the formula contains moisturizing murumuru butter and soja seed. What's most exceptional about the collection, though, may be the price. At $45 a tube, you have to be a serious Ford devotee (or on a seriously large beauty budget) to have this luxury on your lips.
