Cardi B’s little tussle with Nicki Minaj this weekend isn’t stopping her money moves. On Sunday, Tom Ford declared the arrival of a lipstick named after the Bronx rapper in a wonderful shade of cobalt blue. The new collection was sold out within 24 hours of its announcement.
If you head over to tomford.com there is no way to purchase the lipstick. The shade, which is an interesting decision considering Cardi’s blood ties, debuted at Tom Ford’s most recent Boys and Girls collection at their Spring/Summer 2019 NYFW show.
Naming colors after celebrities is a tradition at the brand. Naomi Campbell, Dakota Johnson, and Julianne Moore are a few women who have been gifted with their own shade. This year the brand also released an orchid lipstick named after Black Panther breakout star, Letitia Wright. Counting Cardi’s, there are 15 new Boys shades and 15 new Girls shades.
News of Cardi B’s sold out lipstick comes when pop stars and influencers are killing the beauty game. Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty turned a year old last week. Kylie Jenner’s cosmetic line made her a billionaire and will be available in Ulta Beauty soon.
It’s unclear if Tom Ford plans to restock Bardi’s shade, but if or when that happens you can check out the other lipsticks in the collection at tomford.com.
