The collection is exactly what you’d expect from such a luxe brand and one of the smoothest designers in the fashion world: Ford is bringing old school glamour back with a bang. But he wants some things from us in exchange; he wants us to understand our features because ‘symmetry appeals’ and he has a contouring palette that does the job nicely. 'All make-up should be applied with a brush' instructs Ford, luckily he has the chicest we've seen in a while. And lastly, Ford believes make-up should be perfectly blended and diffused; eyeliners should look lived in and lips soft (which is why you won't see a lip liner in the collection).
So what is there? Well, there are over 130 beautiful products from 'Radiant Skin' which encompasses basic skincare, cleansers, infusions, moisturisers and more. 'Flawless Complexion' – comprised of foundations in liquid and stick form; highlighter and concealer pens, powders and the set-to-be-hero Shade and Illuminate, £55, for achieving that all important and alluring symmetry Ford deems so important. 'The Colour Collection' includes an extended line-up of the existing lipsticks (now housed in black, rather than white packaging), as well as sumptuous Eye Color Quads, £62 (pictured), blushers, lip glosses and one of the best brow pencils, £30, we have seen - it has an built in sharpener and brush.
There are also two new fragrances launching alongside the cosmetics - Santal Blush, Tom's olfactory version of a nude make-up look and Jasmin Rouge a 'voluptuous' scent to accentuate a night time look. Nail lacquers are also set to hit stores just in time for Christmas.
