Rapper Drake apparently had a Tom Ford lipstick shade named after him in a recently released collection.
Unfortunately, the lipstick shade was reportedly sold out minutes after it was first introduced online and in stores, according to Hip-Hop DX.
The report states that the shade was included as part of Tom Ford's "Lips & Boys" collection. However, the burgundy shade named after the Hotline Bling rapper did not stay available for very long before the supply vanished.
Drake poked fun at the situation via social media by crediting his own mother for buying all of the available products on Instagram Tuesday.
"My mom bought all of them. Hey ma."
The "Lips & Boys" collection debuted last year. The Tom Ford brand decided to reboot the collection and added Drake to the list of featured names used to name each included shade.
Elle reports that the 25 shades released in the original collection were re-released along with 25 new shades (including Drake). Southpaw actor Jake Gyllenhaal also made the cut by having his own shade added to the list as well.
Once the news of the Drake lipstick shade selling out first started circulating online, numerous people responded to the news on Twitter, including upset fans that didn't even realize such a shade existed in the first place.

I think it's hilarious that there are people who think the Tom Ford Drake lipstick was specifically for men's use. — HoC (Hoe of Colour) (@iKelseyL) December 15, 2015
if tom ford was smart he would have made that drake lipstick change color pic.twitter.com/bwEK2AJwjkThis is not the first time that Drake has made his mark on the fashion industry. Last month, Drake launched his own clothing line which added a fashionable touch of style to Toronto Raptors apparel.

SportsNet reported that the collection was a collaborative effort between Mitchell & Ness and the Toronto Raptors team. The clothing line consisted of attire options from jackets and T-shirts to toques and caps with a wide range of stylish designs. The OVO owl, the logo for the Toronto Raptors, and popular terms coined by Drake were also implemented into the designs.
Earlier this month, Drake announced the opening of the flagship store for his October's Very Own (OVO) line in Los Angeles, according to Black Enterprise.
The OVO line primarily focuses on Drake's owl-infused apparel along with his collaborative fashion gear projects that originated from him and his manager.
During a 2011 interview with Complex magazine, Drake opened up about his overall vision for his blossoming clothing line.
"I want people to be a part of our movement, I just want it to be right. And everybody else wants me to make it with the cheaper fabric and put it in Macy's and 'Oh don't worry we will make 100 million in the first year.' Naw…because that's not what we are about. I'm not ready for OVO to be that. Because OVO is still something I represent."Fans that are not able to find the Drake lipstick shade from Tom Ford could always decide to invest in the rapper's fashion line instead as an alternative option of sorts.
