>> Preview the best of Tom Ford's debut beauty collection, now available online for preorder. The 130-product collection, which features a full range of everything from nail lacquer ($30) to lip color ($45 to $48) to eyeshadow ($78) to brushes ($50 to $110), won't be available in stores until Nov. 1, but Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus are both offering exclusive presales of the entire selection now. Though most of the products sport pretty standard color names ("Tawny Pink," "Peach" — the line is owned by Estée Lauder, after all), a few were christened with some racier, Ford-esque monikers. “One of the nail colors was first called Bitter Chocolate, and it is such a dark, dramatic shade that I changed it to Bitter B*tch. My favorite is Lost Cherry [a lip color]. If you wear it, and you haven’t, then you just might,” Ford told Allure in its October issue. Click through to see the best colors from the collection, here, in the slideshow.

We already got a sneak peek of Tom Ford's upcoming Color Collection, and now here's a closer look. The 132-piece line features intensely pigmented makeup, skin care, and two new scents. And in keeping with Tom Ford's envelope-pushing personality, you can expect some eyebrow-raising names within the line, such as a bold red lipstick called Lost Cherry and a dark polish called Bitter B*tch. See more of his first official beauty collection before it lands on counters this November.
Tom Ford is bringing his luxe aesthetic to an entire line of high-end makeup, fronted by the nonpareil Lara Stone. You may already know about his Private Blend Lip Color ($45), but this year there will be an entire color collection, rounded out with skin care as well. “My brain works in the same way whatever I do," Ford told WWD. "The approach is practical, architectural, and I use the same vocabulary whether I’m designing clothing or color cosmetics.” To take a gander at the full pragmatic, pricey collection and see all the sexy ads starring Lara and Mr. Ford himself, just keep reading.
