The multi-tasking King of Cool Tom Ford has joined Chanel Creative Director Peter Philips in the campaign to make the lipstick chic and modern in 2010, with his brand new capsule collection of lipsticks that launch this June. The Private Blend Lip Colour collection is his personal interpretation of 12 classic colours."I took the most universally flattering colors that a woman can wear, and then I re-imagined them in a modern and authoritative way," he told WWD. Ford insists that a perfect lip has the power to "define a woman's whole look." Trust us, everything about these beauties is cool, from rich shades and super-smooth formulations, to the foxy adverts, to the heavy uber-luxe packaging, to the TF initials engraved in the end of the lipstick bullet. There’s no denying that these lippies are the height of cool and quite the visual treat, too. You will need them on your dressing table. Guaranteed. Saying that, with a price tag of £35, we’re not sure how many people will get to have all twelve.
