Tom Ford For Men Skincare And Grooming – Where’s Patrick Bateman When You Need Him?

Yes. It’s widely known how much I love Tom Ford. His clothing for men and women is flawless, as is his beauty line for women. Oh, and his sunglasses? Yeah, I admit to swooning over the pair I own.

But can we sit down and talk about Tom’s campaign for his new skincare and “grooming” line for men? It WREAKS of American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman. 

“In the morning if my face is a little puffy, I’ll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now.

After I remove the ice pack, I use a Deep Pore Cleanser Lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub.

(Out of the shower)

Then I apply an herb mint facial mask which I leave on for ten minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an aftershave lotion with little or alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out, and makes you look older.

Then moisturiser, then an anti-ageing eye balm, followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.”

Okay, then.  So Mr. Ford’s exclusive collection of men’s fancy skincare is available only at Neiman Marcus.  I have a feeling my SilverFox husband wouldn’t be all that thrilled with a $25 lip balm, let alone a $150 Skin Revitalizing Concentrate.

Silly Tom Ford! Doesn’t he realize that WOMEN are the ones society expects to stay young and beautiful forever? WE spend the money on this stuff–and our husbands simply “borrow” it from time to time.  


Forget ‘Planking’. Everyone is ‘Draping’ Now! What’s next? ‘Bateman-ing’?

Oh, Mad Men, how you torture us with the length of time in between seasons!  But in the meantime, we have latest craze called “Draping“!

Take a look at these sometimes funny, sometimes dramatic, always clever photos of folks from all over the globe showing us their best imitation of everyone’s favorite, Don Draper.

So, what’s next?  Bateman-ing? I’m afraid what those photos would involve.  Maybe just going to the cleaners with blood cran-apple juice stains on your sheets? Oh, maybe it’s a simple as ordering new business cards…with a watermark, of course.

Yeah. I know. I think it would be ummm, more complicated than those examples, so let’s just not try Bateman-ing. I’m scrapping this idea altogether.



‘American Psycho’ Author, Bret Easton Ellis Tweets About Possible Book Sequel

Oh, Patrick Bateman.  What in the world have you been up to?

We seem to have an American Psycho theme today on Dipped in Cream, don’t we?  Here’s why:  Bret Easton Ellis, author of the wonderfully creepy book is teasing us via Twitter and Facebook about a possible sequel to his original literary 80’s satire of excess and The Me Generation.  Oh, and there’s a dude running around naked with a chainsaw and loses his shit over a colleague’s superior business card.  Patrick Bateman also appears to be racking up charges for the late return of video tapes.

I’d love to share some of Bret Easton Ellis’s most recent tweets:

I’m assuming you’re getting the idea here.  I especially  love that Bateman’s iPad starts speaking to him and that Michael Hutchence is his “hero“.

 Makes me wonder why Bateman would consider the late INXS frontman his “hero”.
