Charlotte Tilbury Launches Matte Lipsticks---and Amal Clooney Is Already a Fan
As if we didn't already want to buy every single product from Charlotte Tilbury's line, the pro makeup artist has just launched a brand new range of matte lipsticks for us to obsess over. This isn't your old-school matte: Tilbury drew upon the tricks she used at photo shoots to give lips a "lit from within" look with pigments and powders, then distilled the technique down to a sole tube of lipstick. The 3-D glowing pigments mixed into the color create a wider, fuller appearance, and the angled bullet almost literally hugs the shape of your lips, allowing for a precise finish without the use of liners or brushes. Though the orchid extract-infused formula has just arrived at charlottetilbury.com for $32 per tube, it's already gaining celebrity fans, including Amal Clooney, who favors the red shades in the collection.
Back in September when she wed George Clooney, Amal wore a mixture of the Bond Girl ($32; charlottetilbury.com) and Walk of Shame ($32; charlottetilbury.com) colors to create her warm brick-toned lip. "Amal knows and loves my products---she wears my Matte Revolution Lipsticks in Walk of Shame, Bond Girl, and Amazing Grace," Tilbury says. "I went into the day knowing what she likes, so I created a retro beauty look inspired by the silver screen sirens that fits her classic style."
Ms. Clooney went back to the tried and true lipstick formula for the Golden Globes (above). Playing off of the timeless Dior number Ms. Clooney wore for the Golden Globes ceremony, Tilbury used the true crimson Red Carpet Red ($32; charlottetilbury.com), which served as the perfect Old Hollywood accent to her gown and opera-length gloves.
