All 50 Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipsticks Deserve A Place In Your Makeup Drawer
There are 50 luxurious Tom Ford lipsticks included in the new and highly coveted Lip & Boys collection. Ford's beauty products are known for beautiful shades, smooth application, and durability, so it is no surprise that the collection of $35 clutch-sized tubes (as Ford calls them, according to WWD) caused a bit of hulla-ba-loo especially with the addition of the deep plum Drake hue that sold out almost immediately.
The story behind the new lipsticks and the collection is actually quite sweet and sentimental. Each shade is named to honor a man from Ford's own life. For example, Addison is named after Ford's first crush; Rory is his best friend, and Richard is his husband. The inspiration? Ford explained to WWD,
Obviously I’m not expecting a lot of men to wear the lipsticks, but I liked the concept. I love seeing a woman in a man’s suit. Why not have a lipstick named after a man? I could be perverse — and if I were still drinking a lot I’d be perverse, but I’m now a little more tame — but I’m not going to go there.
Classic Ford. Out of the 50 total colors, 36 of them are new. They range from plums and deep browns to bright reds and sparkly champagnes. However, according to WWD the predicted best-sellers are Tomas, Matthew, Flynn, Patrick, and Giacomo.
So, why should you buy them? What makes these lipsticks so special? Refinery29 reports that the ingredients are a combo of soma-seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter, and chamomile flower oil. Additionally, they say that every single shade is tried on Tom Ford himself to see how it feels prior to production for your own lips' pleasure.
So, with no further ado, I present to you the TF Lip & Boys collection, so that you can decide yourself whether or not you have to have them. It's a pretty incredible layout, if I do say so myself. Let me break it down for you.
