Ain’t nothing wrong with friendly male companionship! Don’t tell El Hub, but I’ve been spending a lot of time with some new worldly dudes. Meet six of the gentlemen from Tom Ford’s Lips & Boys limited edition lipstick collection. 🙂
Giacomo from Milan loves giving ladies late night tours of the city on his Vespa…
Cooper from London enjoys long walks in the rain, reading literature aloud next to a cozy fire, and exchanging furtive kisses between the stacks at the bookstore…
Justin, the handsome honey from LA, acts like a party boy, but really, deep down inside, he just wants to get married and raise a family in The Valley.
He’ll invite you over to his midcentury modern mini-mansion nestled high in the hills above the city, and as you both sip wine and watch the sunset from the rooftop, he’ll woo you with his long lashes and hazel eyes…
Meet Rafael in Barcelona for 48 hours of unscripted adventure. You won’t get any sleep, so bring concealer and — ahem! — your booty call bag.
When you’re with Alejandro from Rio de Janeiro, you won’t have to wait in any lines. He knows everyone who’s anyone in town, so bring your dancing shoes, and prepare yourself for what you’ll fondly remember as one of the best weekends of your life.
Sweet Luca from San Francisco is smart, funny, loves cats, and he’ll surprise you the next morning with breakfast in bed.
You like to play the field (why settle for just one boy?), but sweet Luca might be a keeper.

SO CUTE THAT I WANT TO SQUEEZE DAH KITTENS. Yeah, the adorable factor on these is sky high.
Small enough to fit into a clutch, but not so small that they’re difficult to work with. I can easily apply these on my lips without feeling as clumsy as Shrek, or worrying about the tubes snapping in half.
The six shades I’ve tried seem very much like the full-size Tom Ford lipsticks I adore — same heft in my hands, same creamy coverage, moisturizing formula, and lots of rich color, especially among the brighter pinks and reds.
At $32 each, they’re a slightly better deal per ounce than Tom’s $50 full-size lipsticks, but oh, my pearls! — they’re still crazy expensive. Total A+ material if they were $20 instead (now maybe a B+).
Also, and this was obviously a grave oversight on Tom’s part, I’m kinda bummed that there isn’t one named after El Hub. 🙂
