Tom Ford recently released his Violet Blonde fragrance, and now, the Tom Ford Beauty cosmetics are to follow. An all-encompassing selection of eyeshadows, lip colors, and more will launch on November 1, and are currently available for pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman. Also available on the Bergdorf site is a video that just so happens to include a bunch of smoldering, black-and-white shots of Ford, talking, looking right at you.
Speaking of smoldering, the Eye Color Quad in "Titanium Smoke" is exactly that. The nice thing about this color palette—charcoals, slates, a light cream—is that it's a means to a smokey eye end that's dramatic without being overbearing. And almost purely for name alone, we're totally into the "Golden Mink" palette, too.
