After all the news speculating about a Tom Ford Beauty standalone store opening in Malaysia for the past few months, we can finally confirm it. After launching in Sephora in March this year with just a handful of products, their first store has opened in Suria KLCC just early this month and we are beyond excited about it. Fans and followers of Tom Ford can now enjoy the whole range in one convenient location.
But it was never easy for Tom Ford. Even though he was involved in quite a number of controversial campaigns in the past, Ford brought his vision into his beauty line in 2006 with his signature scents and that have been sensationalised and glorified worldwide. The brand has since expanded into makeup, skincare and body care over the years — making headlines for the right reasons this time around.
“It is my desire to create the first true luxury brand of the 21st century,” Tom Ford once said.
The brand came into the market as one of the most luxurious beauty brands in the world. Not only its effectiveness proved that they are worthy to be on that upper-range pedestal, their sleek and high quality packaging would be something that customers look for. His bold and sensual personality can be seen throughout the line — aside from the NSFW campaign images where he used staggering names such as “F*cking Fabulous” in his collection (so much for making a statement).
In retrospect to Ford’s story, we’ve put together five highlight products that you’d be proud to own from the brand — including the highly coveted Tom Ford Boys & Girls lip collection that is inspired by the men in his life. Read on more to find out.
Inspired by the men in Tom Ford’s life, each lipstick in this line is named after men he admires, from intimates to collaborators from around the world. The lipsticks are infused with soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter, and chamomilla flower oil that gives the lipstick its ultra-creamy texture.
This sleek-looking compact features three shades: blush, contour, and highlight. The cream-like powder formula sweeps onto the skin seamlessly, giving a natural-looking dimension and gorgeous colour payoff. There are two variants in this range, Soleil Afterglow and Nude Glow.
Flip open the lid for a shimmery celestial powder or twist the cap open for ultra-pigmented, metallic cream shadow. This two-in-one eyeshadow pot can easily elevate your eyeshadow look with just one product, turning it from day to night.
Available in three finishes: Liquid Matte that gives the lips a full velvet-matte coverage, Liquid Metal finishes of in a motlen gleam-like texture, and Liquid Patent transforms your lips to skintight vinyl. All of them are long-wearing, feels lightweight and comfortable on the lips.
Moisturise and coat your skin in Tom Ford’s signature scents at the same time. This body emulsion is available in three scents: Black Orchid, Noir Pour Femme, or Velvet Orchid, that softens the skin while transmitting a provocative fragrance.
