“Lipstick empowers confidence: it is happiness in a tube” – Charlotte Tilbury 

It is Charlotte's love for the mighty lippy and its ability to empower women that was the motivation behind her new Hot Lips collection; a range of 12 lipstick shades all inspired by incredible women that is exclusive to Fenwick* stores from Friday 1st - 3rd July

From Nicole Kidman and Helena Bonham-Carter to Miranda Kerr and Kim Kardashian-West, Charlotte has extracted the beauty DNA of 12 inspiring women, mixing colours that embody their individual style and personality to celebrate the mood-enhancing power of lipstick, and in doing so raising awareness for an amazing charity, Women for Women. It's the ultimate all-female beauty collaboration!

The full 16-piece Hot Lips collection also features 4 best-selling shades from the existing lipstick range: Nude Kate, Penelope Pink, Sexy Sienna and Very Victoria. Here, Charlotte talks through the 12 new shades and the inspiring women behind each one…

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips 3 Day Exclusive

‘Kidman’s Kiss’, £23; inspired by Nicole Kidman

“As a fellow redhead, Nicole has always been an inspiration of mine. This just-kissed rose petal-pink is so dreamy, it’s reminiscent of the flourish of colour on the lips of Pre-Raphealite beauties. Perfect for all complexions, including pale.”

‘Kim K.W’, £23; inspired by Kim Kardashian-West

“Kim is the queen of the nude lip, and this vintage-style pale pink nude makes lips look instantly fuller and irresistible. Kim is a modern day icon, and when she wears this colour, she evokes the 1960s starlets like Raquel Welsh and Sophia Loren.”

‘Hot Emily’, £23; inspired by Emily Ratakjowski

“Hot Emily is an incredible coral that is inspired by the retro bright hues of the 1970s. Emily is the ultimate combination of fresh-faced girl next door with a cool, confident raunchiness.”

‘Bosworth’s Beauty’, £23; inspired by Kate Bosworth

“This statement pink is 1950s retro vintage glamour brought into modern day. Inspired by Kate’s mesmerising timeless look, this bright pink can encompass Old Hollywood elegance, but also feel effortlessly fresh at a festival”

‘Electric Poppy’, £23; inspired by Poppy Delevingne

“This cerise cherry is electric like Poppy’s personality and style, it makes a statement on her beautiful English rose complexion. Whether she’s casual or chic, she is always hypnotising”

'Miranda May', £23; inspired by Miranda Kerr

“A fresh, pinky coral inspired by the sunsets of Malibu and Bondi Beach. This shade perfectly matches Miranda’s effortless fresh-faced beauty.”

‘Super Cindy’, £23; inspired by Cindy Crawford

“This taupey nude completely embodies Cindy’s fresh-faced all-American beauty and harks back to the gorgeous nudes of the nineties that feel so relevant today.”

‘Tell Laura’, £23; inspired by Laura Bailey

“Laura is the ultimate bright, bohemian British beauty. This fresh Geranium red encapsulated her irreverent, fun, eclectic style!”

‘Secret Salma’, £23; inspired by Salma Hayek

“Salma’s smoldering and sexy colouring is so enchanting that I wanted to bottle it! That natural deep-rose brings out her beautiful brown eyes, adding instant sultry Latin sex-appeal to anyone who wears it.”

‘Liv It Up’, £23; inspired by Liv Tyler

“A pretty velvet rosebud that’s inspired by Liv’s signature hybrid of both rock n’ roll and ethereal beauty. It’s a ballet pink that looks amazing worn with a sexy, smoky eye.”

‘Hels Bells’, £23; inspired by Helena Bonham-Carter

“This rich magenta mulberry is inspired by Helena’s quintessentially British style and beauty. Eccentric and one-of-a-kind, this deep wine hue is both Gothic and eclectic.”

‘Carina’s Love’, £23; inspired by Carina Lau

“Inspired by Chinese actress Carina Lau, this screen-siren red is so hot it can be worn on its own. Carina’s natural beauty is accentuated when she wears gorgeous red lips.”

Lipstick has the power to give women confidence and hope all over the world. Even in countries affected by conflict, lipstick is often a powerful statement of defiance.

Founded by Zainab Salbi in 1993, Women for Women International has supported 429,000 of the most socially-excluded women from places like Afghanistan, Nigeria and Iraq. When given the right tools, resources and knowledge, women can transform their families and communities.
