Tory Burch Gives Us Some Lip

Pas Du Tout

When it comes to lipstick, Tory Burch has revealed that she is a "less is more" kind of girl.  In fact, the self-described tomboy admits she didn't wear makeup until the 11th grade. While tomboy isn't exactly a word I'd use to describe myself, I can certainly relate to being a late bloomer when it comes to wearing makeup, as I did not start doing so until my late twenties.  I have loved Tory Burch shoes, bags, and clothes since the brand's inception 10 years ago so naturally I'm a fan of her beauty line, and specifically her new lipstick collection.  The designer, known for her travel-ready tunics and double T-logo accessories, has introduced a lipstick collection with a spectrum of 12 becoming shades inspired by fruits, flowers, and art.  My go-to fave? Ramble on Rose.  It's got a little sheen to it, but it's not too shiny.  It also has a subtle scent of grapefruit and mandarin.  While it is rich textured, it is not at all heavy.  Take a look at the luscious new colors below.  The lipsticks are moderately priced at $32 each and are expected to be available at Nordstrom by the middle of the month.

Rose Petals

The blush hue of rose petals represents a subtle elegance and complements many skin tones because it doesn't have blue or yellow undertones.


According to Burch, "this bright fuchsia, like the color of the summer flower it's named for, adds a feeling of energy and optimism.  It goes on sheer, so you get just a hint of pink."


Inspired by a piece of intricate Indian Art with reddish plum accents Burch spotted on a trip to Rajasthan, this lush deep wine will make a bold statement that is just as eye-catching as the artwork that inspired it.

Smack Dab

A juicy red, which the designer says reminds her of red cherries, plums and heirlooms at their peak in the month August.

Pretty Baby

Tory drew inspiration from the 1960s interior designer, David Hick's, known for his palettes of pinks and orange in creating this retro hue.

Son of a Gun's

This barely there shimmery nude is symbolic of natural materials like straw and rattan.  "Neutrals," according to Burch, "can be just as striking as color."
