WWD reports that Tom Ford has partnered with Estee Lauder Cosmetics, Inc. to launch a 132-piece makeup and skincare collection! Our first thought was, "It's about time." Tom Ford is a man who epitomizes beauty, so (in our opinion) it's a natural progression. Frankly, we're surprised it didn't happen sooner! Ford dabbled in cosmetics previously with his 12-piece Private Blend Lip Color Collection and apparently wanted to do an entire line while at Gucci, but according to WWD, "they weren't convinced he had a voice in color until his lipsticks started selling out again and again." Really? Seems like a no-brainer to us. We love you, Gucci, but you were soo wrong on that one!
The collection will be available in September at high-end department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Tom Ford stores. The collection will have strong pigemention and will include a full line of lipsticks, glosses, fragrance, blush, liners, skincare etc. Prices will range from $30-$250 for makeup/skincare and $195-$475 for fragrance.
