Charlotte Tilbury, makeup goddess and queen of Hollywood glamour, is launching three major new products, and you may as well throw your money at her now because they're major. The latest is no different. Fans of her Filmstar Bronze & Glow Palette (£49) and Matte Revolution Lipsticks (£24) are going to whip themselves into a full-on frenzy over these new products, myself included. Think of them as the next-generation versions of her cult favourites; the Delilah Belle and Amelia Grey Hamlin to their Gigi and Bella.
Keep scrolling to find out what they are.
First up, her new Contour Wand (online 17 August). Seemingly right on the heels of her client Kim Kardashian West's internet-breaking contour sticks, Charlotte has launched her own creamy, cushion-tipped contour product. I swatched these at the press event and was impressed by the formula; the liquid consistency makes them sheer and easier to blend for contouring newbies, while the cushion tip allows for easy blending. Just swipe it under your cheekbones, on either side of your nose and across your jawline, and blend with your fingers for a sculpted Hollywood look. Make sure to blend immediately after applying though—these formulas set fast.
Every contour needs its counterpart, and that would be this Beauty Light Wand, a pearly liquid highlighter that a group of UK beauty editors declared Charlotte's "best product yet." "I wanted to bottle the light effects seen on the Hollywood red carpet," Tilbury says of the new launch (out 17 August). And she certainly does with this product. I love the highlighter in her Filmstar Bronze & Glow because it's light-reflecting without veering into glittery, and this is basically the liquid version of that. Unlike other liquid gold highlighters that can look harsh and metallic without proper blending, this formula is sheer enough that it still looks natural no matter how much you apply. A little goes a long way, and I predict this one selling out instantly.
And of course, to blend everything together, you'll need a dense, fluffy brush (out 17 August). This one is dual ended, so you can use the larger side for blending along the cheeks and the smaller side for areas like your eyes and nose.
According to Charlotte, her lab came to her with a liquid lipstick years ago, and she immediately sent it back. "I knew it was the next big thing, but I hated the feeling of car paint on my lips," she tells us at the press preview. After many more iterations, she was finally satisfied. Her new Hollywood Lips liquid lipsticks (out 10 August) come with a unique applicator that hugs the curves of your lips, making it easier to apply. Plus, the formula is infused with hyaluronic acid for a lip-plumping effect. It comes in 10 shades, ranging from a deep red to pale pinky-nude with no dryness, cracking or flakes in sight.
