12 of our favourite A-listers just launched a signature lipstick...
Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury’s celebrity client list reads like a who’s who of the Hollywood elite. There’s Kim Kardashian-West, of course, there’s Cindy Crawford, there’s Penelope Cruz… And now the beauty guru is collaborating with not one, but ALL of her A-list friends to create a new range of lipsticks – with each lending their name and their signature colour to the cosmetics queen.
That’s right, we’re talking about the first official Kim Kardashian-West lipstick (a caramel-y nude simply called Kim K.W.), plus other hues developed by Salma Hayeck, Emily Ratajkowski, Helena Bonham-Carter, Poppy Delevingne, Kate Bosworth, Miranda Kerr, Nicole Kidman and Sienna Miller, to name just a few.
Launching on 4th July, there are 16 celebrity collaborators in total for Charlotte’s Hot Lips range with each star giving a quirky name to their colour (we love Kidman’s Kiss, which is a rose pink, Electric Poppy, a fuchsia, and Sexy Sienna, a hot tomato).
Priced at £23 each, the lipsticks will be available to buy in Charlotte’s flagship store and on her website. £1 from the profits of each sale will go to Women For Women International, plus there will be a hashtag #lipstickconfidence to raise awareness for the charity.
‘Lipstick is powerful,’ says Charlotte Tilbury of what inspired the idea. ‘It has the ability to completely change your state of mind: It can boost your confidence, pick you up when you’re feeling down, re-energise you, add instant glamour to any outfit and immediately enhance your beauty – there’s happiness in every tube!’
‘With Hot Lips I want to celebrate the mood-enhancing power of lipstick by creating a shade that captures the personality of each of the 12 incredible women that I admire, and in so doing raise awareness for an amazing charity, Women For Women.”’
So we can all feel a little better about our lipstick addiction, then?
