Sneak Peek: Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection Swatches & Photos (Part 1)

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection
Tom Ford Lips & Boys Collection

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Lipsticks ($32.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a collection of miniature-sized lipsticks (0.07 oz. vs. 0.10 oz.) that will be available as a full release beginning December 26th, but they’re available today only at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, and Saks. (As a heads up, Neiman Marcus‘ tiered gift card event seems to apply to Tom Ford Beauty, so that is a way to “save” a little, and they’re offering a gift box when you purchase three shades.)

TomFord.com launched these on the 27th (ahead of the 28th as they were supposed to), and the majority of the shades are sold out now, but there were a few still left last I checked: Kyril, William, Sebastian, Omar, and Blake (apparently metallics were unpopular?). Obviously, since these arrived this morning, all I’ve had a chance to do is photograph, swatch, apply, and get the photos ready, but I haven’t even had a chance to process the chaos yet! Three of the shades I ordered were sold out and are on backorder, so I do not have those (Stavros, Addison, Julian). I would love to get lip swatches up for the shades, but I’m not sure if I’ll have them finished by today – I will try my hardest! Updated: Added lip swatches! πŸ™‚ The following is a list of shades that are repromotes (and I confirmed by comparing swatches, except for Warm Sable, which I don’t have, andΒ Addison, which I don’t have yet):

  • Holden = Vanilla Suede
  • Beau = Blush Nude
  • Henry = Warm Sable
  • William = Pink Dune
  • Addison = Pink Dusk
  • James = Twist of Fate
  • Richard = Negligee

Blake looks super pretty! I just knew Alasdhair wouldn’t be as dark/purple as it appears in the tube though! *sigh* It’s almost always like that with the purples, LOL!

Ah! Thanks for these Christine! After some thought I’ve decided to purchase two of them. I’m giving them to my mom for her christmas present haha. I just can’t fathom spending $50 on the regular sized versions (the highest price point I go are Chanel), just totally not in my budget as a college student! But I know how much my mom has been dreaming of having a Tom Ford lipstick so I think this is my chance to grab some. I think even if they’re minis they still seem like sizable amounts. Waiting for the next part of your review! Thanks<3

These are actually cheaper by the ounce! πŸ™‚ They definitely look smaller, but the amount of product is 30% less – a good way to try before splurging (and if you rarely finish a lipstick, even better).

$32 for 0.07 oz. = $457/oz.
$50 for 0.10 oz. = $500/oz.

Dangit, I wish TF had released ahead of time which boys corresponded with previously released shades… I’ve wanted Negligee for so long! I also want Stavros… Luckily, I’ve got some holiday savings, so I can hopefully order a ton come December 26th!

Thank you Christine, I ordered Richard, pavlos, Guillermo from neimans , they have a case with purchase as well. Your swatches assure me I made the right choices

Darn it! I knew I should have gotten Richard, Blake, and Peter! I knew just knew but got chickenhearted in the end. >_< Urgh! Gustavo has got me kind of nervous with how it swatched but we’ll see. I’m still waiting on my nine to come in. Awesome job as usual, Christine!

You’re a rockstar for banging all these out in a day. 47 is a lot of swatches! It was so hard picking colors without swatches for reference. I thought the photos on the Tom Ford website were really grainy and they just looked inaccurate. I’m glad someone finally posted swatches of all these! Too bad TF didn’t give these to you a week ago so you could swatch them in advance of their debut. I’m guessing TF planned it that way though.

Wow! Thanks for all this hard work.

I don’t think most of these look very good by themselves. The last six, the medium pinks, look very pretty and not as patchy as the rest, though. I think the really light frosty shades would be beautiful layered over other colors, but I don’t like them by themselves. They’re too sheer.

It’s funny how prestige brands seem to shy away from doing racier colours, then something like Stavros comes out and sells out in seconds. (You’re one of several people I know who weren’t able to snag it and I only know one who was!) I’m not sure if these will ever come to a TF counter in Canada, let alone the one in my city, but I there sure are some beauties I wouldn’t mind trying out! Will you be doing individual reviews on any of these?

My guess is actually that Stavros was under-stocked – e.g. maybe they had a 100 of Stavros and 1,000 Addison (that one didn’t surprise me). I’ll probably do reviews of them, but more likely to be closer to the 26th.

All of them are so super gorgeous but an itty bitty part of me wishes some of the colours I love didn’t have names of my ex’s hahaha

Just in case you didn’t have them: Cooper is Pure Pink, Adriano is True Coral, Xavier is Violet Fatale, Alejandro is Slander, Collin is Indian Rose, Cary is Casablanca, and Didier is Moroccan Rouge.

WOW, that is a TON of searching! Hope your lips are ok! Thank you for doing this, your dedication is amazing! Some of these are already calling my name, but looking forward to the full review πŸ™‚

I sort of wish they didn’t have mens names.. My husbands name isn’t one of them but there is an ex’s name and an old creepy stalker ex boss’ name. Sadly those two colors are soo pretty. Grr! πŸ˜›

Loving your pics Christine! I refuse to devulge how many I bought- kinda embarrassed but some are gifts- HONEST! My fav is KRYIL- I’ve got kinda dark pigmented natural lips-& all of TF nudes & lite pinks are a fail on me- they seem to color shift & look awful. The KRYIL is awesome cause it’s so retro in your face, FROSTED! Yeah πŸ™‚ I look like a Cheryl Tiegs throwback-perfection.
Money well spent. So glad I indulged!

OMG! These are simply fab on your lips! Hmm.. Maybe Orlando could mute me a little? I’m dying to feel these on! Oh my.. Major kudos for all the swatched! Are you having fun or what?! πŸ˜€

Ok after ogling both of these posts, I can safely say: F*ck Santa! I’m writing my wishlist to Tom Ford this year. Holy Shiatsu, I need at least 20 of these πŸ™ That’s where I lost count.

The size on these isn’t that bad afterall….sorry if I missed it (or forgot) but will the full release on 26th December be both online and in stores? I may, may consider ordering online. I mean I not super hyped up but for a better value, I’m willing to finally give the lipsticks a go. πŸ™‚

Please share how you’re able to apply so many different lipsticks without shimmer/frost or color from the previous one showing up on the next one. What product(s) do you use to remove the lipstick? Is there a special method you use?

Love some of the browns and corals: Gustavo, Pavlos, Sebastian and Omar the best. Are there too many lipsticks in this collection – too overwhelming? Hopefully the quality is good.

Omg these are so gorgeous! How am i gonna pick just 2 and i haven’t even looked at Part 2 yet. You’re amazing for getting this done so quickly. Count down to Dec 26th!

I’m confused. Are these lipsticks all the same ones he already has put out but just renamed them and made them into a smaller size? Are any of the colors new?

I am getting irritated with Tom Ford’s marketing. Why not send more samples to bloggers so that we can see the swatches and not be upset with the shades? I ordered Alexander based on the photos and I expected a nice natural pink, but instead it was a matte bubble gum pink, almost neon. Ugh. I don’t know why I buy into the Tom Ford secret marketing thing. Must resist next time…or try…lol.

They won’t have samples in until mid-December (closer to the full launch) when I asked a couple of weeks ago, which is why I opted to buy instead (hoping to post on the 1st), so I’m sure more swatches will come out in the next few weeks! πŸ™‚

I’m amazed how well you did! Some of these are seriously pigmented. What did you use to remove the color so it didn’t affect the next swatch, or dry out your lips?

OMG, I can’t believe you swatched ’em all so fast! So many gorgeous shades: Blake, Richard, James etc. I adore minis and I would love several of these but at $32 each, they will be going to other homes πŸ™

You know, these look so different in-store on me than they do in your swatches online. I have 5 picked out, and I went to Neiman Marcus to try them one and didn’t like any of them! I ended up pre-ordering Henry, Collin and Tomas. I’m glad this time I went in to look before I ordered. I also might pick up a Richard later, I have Negligee and I love it, and the ppo is much better on these smaller sizes.

Stavros looks TDF. Do you think it would look ok on a warm skin tone and pigmented lips? I’ve got olive skin and my lips are naturally reddish – so, I wonder if it would look as nice? Thoughts?

I cannot wait for the rest also..I am seriously taking notes. No way can i afford more than 3 at the moment on the pre-order..maybe more once they launch ..after Christmas..I so wish they wouldn’t make this kind of gorgeousness LE. it does seem unfair..most people cant or do not want to pay $50 for a lipstick unless it’d like the only lipstick you own i guess…gasp at that thought! So many of these would be better for spring/summer and they probably would make more $ to just leave them permanent.oh well..so far, i’m looking at: Stravos(if I can get); Giacoma,Pavlos,Liam,John maybe,Alasdair, and Wes..and I said 3 to start..going to be tough! ugh..and more swatches and reviews. I’m not even sure if you have reviewed them all. but, they are sooo pretty!

Oh my goodness! me too! i have been looking at these AGAIN! I have the fever for sure! I have now decided 6 ..probably next week to pre-order. But, my loves list keeps growing. I have hearts next to: Wes,Giacoma,Liam,Starvos,Colin,Pavlos,and Alasdhair..apologies if I misspelled). Help me! Christine, if you could get 6, which would you chose? I have no tom ford lipsticks and there is no counter near.
