Talk About Luxury: Tom Ford Private Blend Lip Color Collection

While promoting The September Issue a few years back, Vogue editrix Anna Wintour once quipped to David Letterman that those who couldn't afford to purchase high fashion apparel could always “buy a new lipstick.” At $45 bucks a tube, we're quite certainTom Ford Private Blend Lip Color Collection is exactly what she had in mind.

The creamy formulation glides on easily, leaving behind a pure wash of brilliant color with just a hint of glossy sheen. Choose from twelve gorgeous shades, from nude Vanilla Suede and vibrant Pure Pink, to true red Cherry Lush and sultry Black Orchid.
