Look. I don’t even own any of Tom Ford‘s new lipsticks from his eponymous Private Blend Lip Color collection. But every time I see a photo of one one of these silken-looking, chicly-packaged jewels, the internal soundtrack of my lifestyle starts playing Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game.
The Private Blend Lip Color collection is, in Tom’s words, his interpretation of 12 classic colors. He told WWD, “I took the most universally flattering colors that a woman can wear, and then I reimagined them in a modern and authoritative way.”
Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bergdorf Goodman will carry Tom Ford lipstick when it launches Stateside on June 1. Each shade will be housed in an elegant ivory and gold case. They’re a steep $45 a tube, but the formula does boast moisturizing murumuru butter and soja seed.
Perhaps it’ll be as easy on the lips as Tom Ford himself is on the eyes. One can only hope.
