Charlotte Tilbury is definitely the luxury brand of the moment, they seem to be the brand on everybody’s lips. If you haven’t heard of their Magic Cream or the lipstick in Glastonberry then where have you been?! The incredible brand have just launched a brand new collection of 16 Hot Lips Lipsticks! Each lipstick has been created in collaboration with beautiful, inspiring women and there is definitely a shade in the range for everybody!
There is everything in this collection, there are nudes, pinks, corals, reds and darker more plum shades. So let’s get into each shade shall we?
I’m going to break the lipsticks down into 4 groups of 4 and talk about each shade and who it was created in collaboration with. So here goes;
Starting from the left we have Bosworth’s Beauty a bright, warm pink that Tilbury describes as ‘a statement pink that brings 1950’s retro vintage glamour brought into the modern day’. This pink was created with Kate Bosworth and depicts her timeless beauty.
Next up is Hel’s Bells, my personal favourite from this collection! Created with Helena Bonham-Carter this lipstick is a stunning rich mulberry shade.
The first of a few pale nudes in this collection is Nude Kate. It is inspired by the ‘biscuit-beige’ look that Charlotte Tilbury originally mixed for Kate Moss. It is a very pale nude, and would look good on people with lighter skin tones. On darker skin tones I think this would end up looking ashy due to it being quite white-based.
Finally in this little group is Liv It Up, created with Liv Tyler this shade is a muted rose shade that I think would look lovely with a classic cat-eye and flawless skin.
Hot Emily is a beautiful, bright coral shade that was created in collaboration with Emily Ratajkowski. Charlotte Tilbury has said that this shade is inspired by the 1970’s hues in ‘American Love Story’. This is a perfect summer colour that would look amazing with a tan!
Very Victoria is probably my second favourite out of this collection, I am a huge fan of the deeper, more mauve-y toned nudes and this is perfect. Inspired by Victoria Beckham, this suede-nude is kind of Velvet Teddy-esque in that it is a timeless shade.
Sexy Sienna is definitely a summer shade, it would compliment a tan absolutely perfectly. Tilbury describes this as a ‘Golden Coral’ and I don’t think I could sum it up any better than that. Not too bright, not too pastel.
Penelope Pink is a muted, nude pink inspired by the beautiful Penelope Cruz. This is a very ‘your lips but better’ kind of colour that would add just a touch of colour but not be too bold.
Miranda May is a very fresh pinky-coral colour that was inspired by Miranda Kerr. This is a very beachy shade that would look lovely with slightly sea-waved hair and a golden tan.
Super Cindy is described as a ‘barely-there taupey nude’ that would definitely suit a radiant skin, nude eye type of makeup look. I think this is a nude that would suit every skin tone, but any body with darker skin may want to use a slightly darker lipliner around the edges to reduce any ashy tones.
Kim K.W. is exactly the colour that I think of when I think of Kim Kardashian-West’s makeup. She is always rocking a super pale nude, and this is the palest nude in the collection. It’s a very pink nude, that Kim would be proud of!
Tell Laura is a super bright, orange-red inspired by Laura Bailey. This is 100% a summery shade! I think this would look amazing with a thin, winged liner and a slightly more matte face.
Carina’s Love is a beautiful bordeaux red, a very classic shade that will suit any skin tone. It is inspired by Carina Lau and I think it would look absolute stunning on anybody with a medium skin tone or darker. Possibly even somebody who is super pale, to create that almost Snow White look.
Electric Poppy is the brightest shade in this new lineup, a neon, super vibrant fun pink. This colour will definitely make a statement when worn. This colour is inspired by Poppy Delevigne, known for her crazy, bubbly personality which is definitely portrayed in this lip colour.
Secret Salma is another one of those classic mauve-y nudes that everybody seems to be loving at the moment. This rose-plum shade would look stunning on anybody with brown eyes.
Kidman’s Kiss is a a coral-nude that is another one of the ‘your lips but better shades’. This shade would be incredibly easy to wear, and would go with almost any makeup look. I think it would be pretty difficult to find a look that this shade, inspired by Nicole Kidman, doesn’t work with.
So there we are, the 16 new shades from Charlotte Tilbury. Now let’s get into the technical bits shall we?
The Charlotte Tilbury websites boasts a formula that contains 3D pigments that create a cashmere soft look on the lips. They look to be, from the lip swatches on the website a creamy matte finish, and extremely pigmented.
These lipsticks have the same square tip as the Matte Revolution Lipsticks, Charlotte designed this bullet-shape to mimic a lip brush and make application from the tube much easier.
The lipsticks are available now to buy from the Charlotte Tilbury website (linked here) and cost £23 each, the standard price of a CT lipstick.
So there we have it, the new launch from Charlotte Tilbury. Let me know what you think and if you have tried anything from Charlotte Tilbury!
