THE KISS OF LIFE
Where would we be without Charlotte Tilbury, we wonder? Another day, another beauty drop, this time with her Hot Lips 2 collection, launching in the region today.
In similar vein to her pre-existing collection, the new 11-lipstick line-up reads like a who’s who of power-house people, with each shade named after the rule breakers, record makers and history shakers who have inspired Charlotte.
Much like the first collection which nodded to Kim K, Emily Ratajkowski and Salma Hayek, Charlotte now pays homage to Amal Clooney, Jennifer Aniston, Kylie Minogue and Sofia Vergara, amongst others, with 11 new shades, colour-coded from pillarbox reds to candyfloss pinks, all packaged in refillable cases, with five unique designs, to make the collection a Tilbury collectible.
“When I created this range, I wanted to create a new colour world for everyone – looking for gaps in the colour spectrum and mixing the most nuanced, super-flattering, super-wearable shades. These shades have super powers, they look incredible on everyone. I always envision the colour and texture, and how the complement each other to make the shade even more unique and incredible,” Charlotte says.
These lipsticks also promise to do more than prettify your pout, as Charlotte has also pledged a whopping GBP1 million to Women for Women International. “A lipstick can change a life, because if you can change how a woman feels, you can change a community, and you change the world,” Charlotte Tilbury says.
Now, that’s the kind of power pout we love. #LipstickConfidence
