Tom Ford's limited edition lipstick named after rapper Drake has flown off shelves.

Tom Ford's latest lipstick inspired by rapper Drake has sold out in a matter of minutes in the U.S.

Elle.com reports the designer's latest lip shade, inspired by the Hotline Bling star, was out of stock on online fashion site Net-a-Porter just moments after it was listed on Monday (14Dec15).

A spokesman for the outlet revealed Tom's New York and Chicago boutiques had also sold out with no plans to restock the item, however Net-a-Porter has promised more stock will be coming soon via its New Arrivals page.

Tom released the Drake lipstick as part of his hugely successful Lips & Boys collection, which made its debut last year (14). The homage to the Canadian rapper featured in its second run and consisted of a deep burgundy shade.

The collection is inspired by notable men in the designer’s life and was previously available for a limited time, but its success so far has led to rumours suggesting the line could become permanent.

While the speedy sales of the lipstick has left many American fans in despair, British lovers of the designer or Drake can still get their hands on the product via Net-a-Porter's U.K. site.

Drake has become something of a style icon of late, thanks to the style choices he makes in his latest music video, in which he dons an oversized, grey ribbed Acne Studios jumper and a bright red Moncler puffer jacket.

The Italian company reported one of its most profitable days ever soon after the Hotline Bling video made its debut in October (15). In fact, the company sold twice as many units of the jacket than on an average sales day.
