Let me introduce you to Collin and Franceso – 2 studs from Tom Ford’s Lips and Boys Collection. Are they gorgeous? Yes they are.
Are they tiny? YES THEY ARE.
This was my first dabble with TF lipsticks after Selfridges sent me a preview of the line, I liked the fact that they were smaller versions of the full size lipsticks and therefore more ‘affordable’ at £26 each. I also didn’t do my usual research, blindly ordered Colin and Francesco and when they arrived I was jaw- to-the-floor SHOCKED. I mean look at them – they are tiny. Teeny tiny. Look at them compared to a MAC lipstick. They are literally designed to be held in the hands of small children.
It doesn’t matter that the lipsticks are pretty. It doesn’t matter that they look and feel expensive. It doesn’t matter that the lipsticks are creamy, pigmented and true to colour.
Let’s face it, size matters and everytime I hold Collin or Francesco in my hands, I am reminded of how much I paid and the itty bitty lipsticks I got in return. This leads to frequent facepalming.
That being said, if you carry a small clutch bag all the time or for evenings out, they would be perfect as they are so compact.
Available exclusively at Selfridges.
