Charlotte Tilbury’s Hot Lips 2 collection just launched with 11 nuanced lipstick shades inspired by 11 incredible icons; rule breakers, record makers and history shakers, from the peachy nude-rose in homage to JK Rowling to a dreamy elegant berry in homage to Amal Clooney. The shades, formula, and the names of the lipsticks are so fun as well as suitable for all skin tones, day and night. The universally-flattering colours come in five magical, collectible, refillable cases inspired by Charlotte’s universe of fashion, Hollywood, Rock ‘n’ Roll and magic. The lipsticks can be mixed and matched with your favourite design with any Hot Lips 2 refill shade.
It is just not a new lipstick launch but is also an ultimate empowering collaboration with Women for Women International to inspire confidence and change lives with a truly magical £1 million pledge of Hot Lips sales to the incredible charity.
There are 10 colours and also a lip conditioner in the range and each one is inspired by people that Charlotte considers to be iconic in her life. There are five K.I.S.S.I.N.G shades and five Matte Revolution shades.
The K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick formula is moisturizing and hydrating, leaves an illusion of lit-from-within sheen, plumper looking lips. The staying power is nice, I had to reapply after over 5 hours while it kept the lips comfortable.
The are five K.I.S.S.I.N.G shades:
- Dancefloor Princess (Kylie Minogue) – cool 60s pop princess pink
- Angel Alessandra (Alessandra Ambrosio) – perfect peachy nude
- Glowing Jen (Jennifer Anniston) – tawny beachy rose
- J.K. Magic (J.K Rowling) – peachy nude rose
- In Love with Olivia (Olivia Palermo) – pretty pink
The Matte lipstick formula is hydrating and conditions the lips, the formula is pigmented and comfortable to wear. The staying power is pretty good too, I had to reapply after over 6-7 hours. For my lips which are on the dry side, the formula works pretty nice.
The five Matte Revolution shades are:
- Carina’s Star (Carina Lau) – modern peach soft coral
- Viva La Vergara (Sofia Vergara) – soft wine
- Patsy Red (Charlotte’s mum) – iconic red
- Red Hot Susan (Susan Sarandon) – wearable tawny orange
- Amazing Amal (Amal Clooney) – elegant soft berry pink
The packaging of the lipsticks is gorgeous, heavy, and looks elegant yet modern. The five gorgeous refillable lipstick cases are:
- Timeless Leopard
- Modern Red Leopard
- Magic Infinity Starburst
- Magic Panther
- Power of the Universe
There’s also a hydrating lip conditioner-lipstick called the Enigmatic Edward Hot Lips which is a hydrating clear lipstick in homage to Edward Enninful. It keeps the lips moisturized and comfortable for an impressive amount of time, for me, my lips were nice and smooth for over 7-8 hours. It can also be layered with the other lipsticks – over or under them.
With something for everyone – shade range, formula, or packaging,
Charlotte Tilbury’s Hot Lips 2 collection is definitely something you need to check out. Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Collection is available at Charlotte Tilbury Canada, Charlotte Tilbury US, and Holt Renfrew.
