Charlotte Tilbury just changed the gloss game with her latest release

Balm-like moisturising with high-intensity colour? Game-changer.

09 Oct 2018

Finding the perfect lipstick is the kind of feeling I imagine you get when your life is complete. Like, you've won the lottery, found yourself a Bradley Cooper and have 500 dogs kind of complete.

And although there are many many cult lipsticks out there, there really is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to choosing whether you're a matte or sheer kinda gal.

Personally, as much as I'm a slave to Velvet Teddy by MAC, the matte texture of the lipstick is just too drying for my lips, but have never been able to find the colour intensity from anything else out there, so hearing about Charlotte Tilbury's latest release was a total "where have you been all my life?" kind of moment.

When we thought the makeup royalist couldn't top makeup bag staple, Pillowtalk, she's announced the release of Superstar lips - the glossy, high-intensity lipstick we've all been waiting for.

Superstar lips will be the brand's first "slim stick" lipstick and has balm-like smoothing properties such as hyaluronic acid, peptides, softening polymers, and emollient oils.

The launch is initially going to be a pretty small one with six wearable colours including Sexy Lips (nude peach), Wild Lips (berry pink), Confident Lips (deep berry) and Happy Lips (coral). Of course in true Charlotte Tilbury fashion, classics Walk of Shame and Pillowtalk are also being released in Superstar Lips format.

Initially, the lipsticks will form part of the Cosmic Gift Shop holiday collection, so definitely not one you can wait around for - although we're secretly hoping they bring them back permanently.

Keep your eyes peeled for our review.
