You met my boys last week didn't you? I was having some fun with them today and wanted to share with you. Tom Ford's Lips & Boys Collection will be available in Germany on the 27th and in the States the store will start selling them on the 26th, so I didn't want to hold my review until after the holidays.
Here is what me and my boys did...
|Tom Ford Lips & Boys, Tomas, Liam, Gustavo, Jack, Stravros, Guillermo and Alasdhair|
I first swatched them against some closer shades that I have in my stash. I found out from the cooler boys, Jack is cooler than Aphrodisiac. Liam is the more purple one of the two vamps, Alasdhair and Liam. Alasdhair is close to Black Orchid that everyone seems to be missing, so make sure to grab one if you are in the search. Black Orchid is a little more saturated and more pigmented than Alasdhair but their balance of berry and red is very close.

Everyone is trying to get hold of Stravros. I can understand why, that boy stole my heart. It is close to Viva Glam Rihanna 2, but cooler and pulls more purple. You can see a comparison here at my Instagram. When I posted that many would like to see me and Strovros having fun, so here you go... Here I am wearing Chanel Tisse Fantaisie on my eyes and Burberry Earthy on my cheeks, which is a great blush to pull off weird shades.

Talking about cool boys, I like the easy going Jack for times I don't need to be especially unique. It is a great pink for those who like it cool. It is one of the coolest mid-toned pinks of the range and I am loving it together with Chanel's new nail polish for Spring, Le Vernis #643 Desirio, which I am loving more than the other two shades at the moment, surprise!

Since my last post a new boy joined the family, say hi to Blake. It is a gorgeous mid-toned to deep copper with golden flakes. The base shade pulls enough pink so that it doesn't appear brown on my lips. It is close to MAC Moody Bloom from Moody Blooms Collection, which was one of the lipsticks I love wearing during Fall. Blake is a tad warmer because of more golden sheen to it. I can't feel the flakes on my lips, it is very hydrating and long wearing. It became one of my favorite boys.

This is me and Blake together. On my cheeks I have a touch of Tom Ford Savage, which I think really works wonderfully with Blake. On my eyes I am wearing Chanel Tisse Fantaisie again, because I am badly in love with that quad!

Now on to warmer beauties, before Blake joined them I had three of those, Tomas, Gustavo and Guillermo. Tomas was a shade I had to pick up since it is closest to hubby's name. Gustavo was probably the wrong decision since I am not into brown lipsticks. Tomas' base color looks close to Twist of Fate but it has all the golden sheen gorgeousness on top, love Tomas, both of them (boy and hubby). I thought plum brown Guillermo would be close to Chanel L'Impatiente but it is a tad browner. I love how it looks on the lips though.

Now are you ready for some more fun? I was behind the reviews and was searching for ways to be able to take application photos of more lipsticks at a time. Then I was inspired by the promo photos of Lips & Boys. Doesn't that guy look hot in a purple lipstick? With the help of hubby now I can present you with two lipsticks at a time. Here you go!
This is me wearing Alasdhair and hubby wearing his name sake Tomas. I have to warn you, if you have blue eyes, you need Tomas. It made hubby's eyes bluer than ever. I am loving Alasdhair, a great vamp, especially for those who missed on Black Orchid.

As it turned out to be fun playing around with boys together, we went on a second round with Liam and Gustavo. I believe in the promo photo the guy with the lipstick is wearing Liam too. Let me tell you, it looks great on man! I was a little undecided about Gustavo but you see, it is not all that bad. Also check me out wearing Liam in the previous post. Liam is by far one of my favorites of the range!
