Yep, the fashion designer is massively hot and I’m not afraid to say it. Even though I’m definitely not his type (if you know what I mean) he’s got that sexy-gentleman-with-a-hint-of-ruggedness look down to perfection. He’s elegant, sophisticated and very exclusive – and these traits have been passed down to his new cosmetics collection, which I had the pleasure of experiencing last night.
Tom Ford beauty was launched in April this year, but has been completely off my radar until now. His fragrances are delicious, elegant and amazingly unique (you literally will never be able to compare his Black Orchid scent with anything else) and provide the inspiration for the other products. The range includes a collection of twelve lipsticks, categorised into nudes, pinks and corals, which are encased in a beautiful white case that screams exclusivity. The bullet (technical term for lippie) is stamped with Tom’s logo and the colours are divine… these were some of my favourite shades.
|Fabulous colours, nude to deep red|
The lipstick itself is really luxurious, unsurprisingly, and applies like a dream. It’s creamy, smooth and silky, without being too greasy or smudgy. Because the shades are so pigmented it even stays on for hours, well after the lop layer has been left on your champagne glass (darling, it’s Tom Ford – you have to drink champers.) Every lady in the room last night had a fab pout – from nudies to deep reds, we were all looking fabulous.
|The Original Scent|
This Autumn Tom Ford is releasing a special edition collection which contains three must have items. His classic and timeless Black Orchid perfume has been re-housed in an elegant and 1920’s inspired compact so you can re-touch your scent on the go. The compact itself is beautiful, heavy and intricate – I would love to have one of these in my bag! To go alongside the compact, Tom is launching his best selling Black Orchid lipstick in a limited edition black pack to match. This colour is fantastic, deep and very on-trend. Only for those more daring among us, but this is really a stand out shade. Not only that, but he’s also launching a limited edition nail enamel in the Black Orchid shade too. I got to try this last night and the colour is lovely – a very deep, almost black red which is perfect for Autumn.
|Look how pretty!|
The nail varnish and limited edition black pack lipstick are only available in a gift pack with the perfume compact so they really do feel exclusive and special. They’ll be available in Harvey Nicols, Space NK and Tom Ford counters from October, so definitely put them on your Christmas list now before Santa is too late.
