There are now 100 mini Tom Ford lipsticks available, yes I did say 100. The Boys & Girls collections a lot of them limited are available in Brown Thomas and they are fab. The Boys, cased in the classic black & gold packaging are my favourites, with ten mattes in the collection now, these are Tom Ford mattes, which although are matte they almost have a velvet finish and do not dry out your lips. But the original finish is still my favourite, hugely pigmented and uber hydrating they are lipsticks of dreams. It is said that once you go Tom you never go back!! There are five new ‘boys’ in the collection, Connor, Federico, Alain, Magnus and Charles. My favourites are Alain which is the perfect blue red with just a hint of shine and Connor which is a wonderfully warm red with the ultra-hydrating original formula.
With The Girls, all 50 shades are new, and unfortunately all limited edition. This set of colours is far more playful then the boys. With metallic finishes and crazy colours these are proper fun! With Blues and lavender and metallic reds these really are great craic! Although these colours look unwearable, there are very few of us who would actually wear a blue lippy, the finish is super sheer and just add a hint of colour, you could add the blue shade on top of your regular lipstick and your teeth will instantly look whiter.
Along with the more fun shades there are lots of wearable colours with some of the most perfect pinks, proper perfect pouts will be made with these shades. Rosie is my favourite, it’s the perfect nude pink shade with the right amount of pinkness and a subtle shimmer. I think I will be using this shade a lot over the next few months while it is available. I really hope that they make it a permanent shade, will someone have a word with Mr. Ford for me????
The Boys & Girls collections are available now in Brown Thomas and they cost €35.00 for a clutch sized lipstick. You can also buy the full Boys or Girls collection in a beautiful wooden presentation box for €1750.00 and there is a three piece for €105.00. I have put the 100 shades below so you can browse. Enjoy!!
