Right after Christmas on December 26th, Tom Ford’s aiming to be the second coming of Santa as he drops his clutch-sized lippy line, Lips & Boys on counter. A 50-shade-strong collection, reports that there’ll be 10 shade ranges, which include nude browns, violets and plums, metallics, reds and light pinks, and they’ll be in a mix of textures too, like the new Velvet Suede offering – 10 will be available in this formulation.

The collection’s not going to be at all stockists – 200 out of 400 – but with Brown Thomas Dublin being Tom Ford Beauty’s Irish flagship, I’m imagining it’s a pretty safe bet. In the US, the price for these mini marvels will be $32, so we’ll probably pay about €30 – a regular lipstick is €47 for comparison, and I dunno about you but I never finish a lipstick, so will these small offerings be just about enough? Time, it will tell.

What do you reckon? One you’ll take a look at when it lands?
