Tom Ford must moonlight as a matte scientist…because his new 13-piece holiday Color Collection is all about matte!
Get it…? Matte scientist? Sorry, I know that was a totally substandard pun.
Let me try again…
This year, Tom Ford is channeling Spencer Tracy with an all-star cast of matte lipsticks to make sure we’re all living in a matte, matte, matte, matte world!
Get it? Spencer Tracy? Because there was a movie…
I am so matte right now.
(How matte are you?)
I am so matte right now that Tom Ford could hire me to be one his eight new Lip Color Matte lipsticks, badum-tish!
Lips take center stage in the new 13-piece Tom Ford Holiday 2014 Color Collection (Tom also released some other holiday sets and perfumes), with a new line of eight Lip Color Mattes.
Sadly, they’re a double take-inducing $50 each, but day-um! — Tom did some serious work on these because I think every one is absolutely freakin’ beautiful.
Crazy pigmented, they lay down color like Tabs lays down for a nap — smoothly — and without any patchiness in sight.
As if that wasn’t enough, the lightweight formula lasts a good, long time. I haven’t had them on long enough to clock them down to the minute, but I’m going to say six or seven hours (they remind me of a thicker, longer-lasting version of the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Intense Long-Wear Lip Colours).
I’m crushing Hulk-caliber hard on the nude shades in First Time, Pink Tease and Pussycat. Oh! — but that bright orangey red (Flame) is also a stunner.
For eyes, Tom included two glossy, neutral cream shadows as spicy counterparts to the matte lipsticks.
