When a makeup line is just as beloved by everyday beauty buffs as it is by Hollywood starlets and their red carpet glam squads, a new product launch is bound to create a lot of buzz. So when Charlotte Tilbury announced it would be dropping a second collection of 11 totally new Hot Lips shades inspired by superstar individuals that encourage confidence in beauty lovers everywhere, you can imagine the anticipation to learn exactly what colors to expect. Now for the good news: The Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips 2 shades have finally been released, and they're every bit as glamorous as you'd imagine.
At the beginning of May, celebrity makeup maven Charlotte Tilbury gave beauty obsessives everywhere something big to look forward to this summer — the launch of her beauty line's second Hot Lips collection on June 20. Last month, the brand gave away just enough information to tease the exciting drop, telling shoppers to expect 11 completely fresh shades inspired by a new selection of empowering people that Tilbury admires.
“I have bottled the beauty DNA of 11 iconic, world-changing people to create new shades in homage to their inspiring beauty and lives, and the difference we can make together!” Charlotte Tilbury said in an official statement.
And now, just a couple days ahead of the hotly anticipated release, the gorgeous hues (and the high-profile names they've been graced with) have officially made their debut. So, which one will you choose?
For Hot Lips 2, Tilbury selected notable individuals from several walks of life — from silver screen stars like Jennifer Aniston and Sofia Vergara to powerhouse author J.K. Rowling and high-profile fashion editor Edward Enniful. The shades, which are meant to embody each namesake but formulated to flatter anyone, range from sandy nudes and pale pinks to rich wines and classic reds. Each tube will retail for $37 a piece and $24 for a refill bullet.
Need the confidence to strut your stuff like catwalk pro Alessandra Ambrosio? Select Angel Alessandra, a sunset peachy nude in Tilbury's sheer K.I.S.S.I.N.G formula that'll enhance your summer glow. Want inspiration to kill it in the boardroom? Grab Amazing Amal, a matte soft berry pink shade that'll have all eyes on you while you nail that presentation the Amal Clooney way.
You'll also find colors named for Susan Sarandon, Kylie Minogue, Carina Lau, Olivia Palermo, and Charlotte's own mother, Patsy Tilbury. And just like the first Hot Lips collection, Hot Lips 2 benefits non-profit organization Women for Women International by coinciding with a pledge of $1.3 million from the Charlotte Tilbury brand. It's all part of Tilbury's #LIPSTICKCONFIDENCE campaign, which seeks to empower women across the globe to live their best lives.
And for the first time ever, Tilbury's new Hot Lips 2 Collection features interchangeable bullets with collectible designs inspired by fashion, Hollywood, rock ‘n’ roll and magic. The designs include The Timeless Leopard, The Magic Panther, The Magic Infinity Starburst, and The Power of the Universe. Choose your favorite, and keep it forever by stocking up on refills of your go-to Hot Lips hue.
