“There is no more dramatic accessory than a perfect lip. It is the focus of the face and it has the power to define a woman’s whole look,” says the always visually astute Tom Ford of his just launched “Private Blend‘ lipstick collection. “I took the most universally flattering colors that a woman can wear, and then I re-imagined them in a modern and authoritative way.” Says Bella Blissett, beauty editor at F.TAPE, “From Bare Nude and Vanilla Suede to Fire Red and deepest Bruised Plum, the range takes the idea of a ‘signature shade’ to a whole new level, giving true beauty afficionados the chance to pick a colour to suit their every look, whim and mood. And coming under the Estee Lauder banner, it comes as no surprise that it contains ingredients such as soja seed extract and chamomilla flower oil for the ultimate creamy texture.” Each lipstick comes with a gold and ivory case. Priced at $45 each, the collection is available now in Europe and in the States starting June 1st.
