It’s a high price point, to be sure, exceeded only by Christian Louboutin’s $90, jewel-encrusted Sephora offering and Guerlain’s more affordable (by contrast!) lipstick, at $56 — nope, not even Dior, Armani, or Givenchi’s lipsticks cost more than Tom Ford’s! — but TF’s products are coveted by the likes of Chrissy Teigen and Priyanka Chopra, so you know you’d be in good beauty company.
Racked reports that Tom Ford’s luxurious lipsticks, previously available only through TF stores, on the brand’s website, and from department stores and online marketplaces like Net-a-Porter, dropped at Sephora.com this week and will be available at select brick-and-mortar Sephoras beginning in March.

Included in the product line are matte, shiny, and classic lipsticks, along with a lip color/pencil duo and a glossy stain, all priced at $53.

Can’t get on board with a $53 lipstick? We don’t blame you; it’s a sizable chunk of change. The good news is Sephora is also now carrying Tom Ford’s lower-priced line of “clutch-size” lipsticks, a range of 50 shades called Lips + Boys. Released in 2014, the pint-size lipsticks are named after men who have passed through the designer’s life, including Drake, whose sparkly, berry-hued lipstick sold out almost instantly.
“Launching 50 shades of lipstick at once is already innovative, as is naming them after boys and making them miniature,” said Ford in an interview with Women’s Wear Daily about the release of Lips + Boys. “People carry teeny-tiny little bags today, and are trying to fit their iPhone, money, and a key. I think the idea of a small bag is modern, and you need to be able to fit a lipstick into that small space.”
So tell us beauty mavens: Will you be dropping wads of cash at Sephora this weekend to stock up on your favorite TF shades?
