Trust Tom Ford to come up with a collection that's equal parts provocative and covetable. Introducing 25 new additions to the brand's Lips & Boys collection

What's in a name? If you have a lipstick named Drake or Joaquin, it gives a sexy new twist to puckering up. Tom Ford Beauty's previously limited-edition Lips & Boys collection is back and is now here to stay. While we can't be sure exactly who he's named these lippies after, we spot a (Zayn) Malik, Ansel (Elgort) and Jude (Law) among the new shades. And believe us, these babies are as lust-worthy as the handsome men they're named after.

In the first collection launched last year, Ford himself was inspired to name lipsticks after men he finds intriguing. Well the 25 best-selling shades are back and this year the designer has 25 new 'boys' and brilliant hues up his sleeve. This year's fresh, new offerings come in a super sexy pearlescent, metallic finish and a range of unusual colours. Our favourites? The stunning and offbeat shades  Roman — a purple brown and Vladimir — a silvery grey beige. So awesome are these out-of-the-box colours, they had us struggling to categorise their shades.

Each of the 50 lipsticks are miniatures that fit neatly into your purse for an evening out. Feeling rich? Splurge on the 10-piece set that comes with 10 pre-selected shades.
