Tom Ford is launching a comprehensive beauty collection, including skincare, complexion, colour products and brushes. As well as two formulas of foundation (a liquid and a stick) and pressed powder, there are highlighting and sculpting products in the base collection. Two new Private Blend Collection Fragrances also launch at the same time; Jasmin Rouge and Santal Blush.
There are 10 Eye Color Quads (TF's american spelling, not mine) and there are a good selection of neutral combinations as well as some more colourful options. There are four textures of eyeshadow, sheer sparkle, shimmer, satin and matte, but no set format to the Quads: at least one appeared to be all matte/satin, and the others were varied combinations of the finishes. As you'd expect, the eyeshadows are well pigmented and creamy and swiped easily. I was instantly drawn to the taupe combination of Silvered Topaz (swatches are at the bottom of this post).
The Private Blend Lip Color range has become the Tom Ford Lip Color. There are now 18 colours in the line, although sadly some of the original 12 Private Blend Lip Colors didn't make the collection (including Pure Pink *sob*). However, there are more natural/neutral shades to choose from. This is a swatch of Casablanca lipstick, a natural rose shade. This colour bridges the gap between Pink Dusk and Moroccan Rouge in the current Private Blend line.

There are also eye pencils, a black gel eyeliner, a mascara, brow pencils, lip glosses and a clear lip lacquer in the colour cosmetics line. The whole range strikes a balance between being comprehensive, but still tightly edited.
Of course, it's going to be expensive. The quads are £62 (info from this post on BritishBeautyBlogger) and I doubt you'll get much change from £40 (if any) for the blush. However, the Le Metier De Beaute eyeshadow Kaleidoscopes were £60 too, so depending on the size of the Tom Ford Color Quads it might be a comparable price.
Some of the line will definitely be going on my Christmas list, and I plan to purchase the Silvered Topaz Quad when the line launches.
