Celebrity make-up artist?Charlotte Tilbury is a master craftswomen in the world of beauty; her products are high-quality and transformative – and that’s just two reasons why Amal Clooney has her on speed dial. Her make-up collection contains many standout products – foundation, mascara and incredible eye-pencils – but her lipsticks are second to none in terms of quality. There’s a shade to suit every skin tone; they’re long-lasting, and you can’t help but feel beautiful and ready to face the day while wearing one.
Tilbury is now venturing into the lucrative world of celebrity collaborations, by launching a new lipstick line Hot Lips where you’ll be able to buy twelve gorgeous shades personally approved by your favourite female celebrities. ?The British make-up artist is teaming up with 12 of her big name clients and the charity Women For Women International, a nonprofit humanitarian organisation that provides practical and moral support to women survivors of war, on this limited edition lip collection. Each celeb, including Kim Kardashian, Helena Bonham-Carter, Poppy Delavingne, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Liv Tyler, and Cindy Crawford picked the shade and name that corresponded with her signature colour – Kim K’s is a pale nude pink, of course – that will help women in need.
The collection features shades that “capture the personality of each of the 12 incredible women [she] admires,” according to the press release. It also features four additional shades that are part of Tilbury’s core lipstick collection. And for each Hot Lips lipstick sold in the first two months of launch, €1 will be donated to Women for Women.

“Psychologically, lipstick has this amazing effect on women,” the iconic make-up artist said, citing the “lipstick index” and the effect it has had on women and the community throughout history. “To work with these incredible celebrities that really are beauty icons of today and to be able to steal a little bit of their DNA, give back and be associated with this incredible charity, the whole thing is just so exciting.”
“It’s just a little tube of confidence and happiness. Elizabeth Taylor put it so brilliantly when she said, ‘Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together.’ And even if you have no makeup skills, somehow everyone can put on a lipstick.”
The Hot Lips collection will land on counters in June and as the range is limited edition, we expect it to sell out before you can blink.
