Tom Ford’s Private Blend Lip Colour Collection

The multi-talented Tom Ford is of course the ultimate perfectionist. So it’s only fitting that his new Private Blend Lipstick line is flawless. Perfect amount of pigment, perfect colours, even perfect packaging. To mirror the 12 scents in his Private Blend fragrance collection, there are 12 shades, ranging from the chic new Vanilla suede to the aptly named Black Orchid (a node to his best selling scent). And thanks to brazilian murumuru butter and camomilla flower oil, the lipsticks’ textures is as smooth as the man himself.

Yesterday evening I was reading the last number of “Vanity Fair” and I run into the following interview to Tom Ford by chance. He’s speaking about his new lipstick collection, available from June 2010 in the following selling points: Neiman Marcus, Sacks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman. Aready from 24th April 2010 Private Blend Lipstick is available in Tom Ford’s head milanese brand shop located in via Verri, Milan.

From Vanity Fair, 23rd June 2010:

Tom Ford brings seduction into lipstick by creating “Private Blend Lip Colour”, which is a 12 lipsticks collection endowed with strong and soft textures. The fashion designer – film director told us his new experience in the make-up world.

Where did you take inspiration for your collection?

I chose the most classical colours and I invented them again under a modern perspective. They are polish and strong, exclusively addressed to connoisseurs. I wanted a total nuance guardrobe, so that a woman could choose which to wear, as well as you do with a pair of shoes.

So all the shades should be available, shouldn’t they?

It’s normal choosing according to your own colours and the shape of your face, but you have to consider the style, too. Lips are the key-point of the look itself.


They’re at the very centre of the face’s architecture. They are endowed with a strong erotic and sexual charge as well. We’re always fascinated by them. This doesn’t mean that lips have to be always red and glossy in order to catch the attention around you. Beige and pink lipsticks, for example, are more toned down: despite this they express that lovely glossy minimalism, which I really adore. The same minimalism which char

acterizes the gold and ivory case.”

  1. Salve,
    avrei bisogno di contattare la make up artist Michela Boniardi, sapreste dirmi come posso fare visto che non è reperibile su nessuno degli indirizzi che ci sono su internet e il suo sito web è inesistente?
