‘On a bad day, there is always lipstick,’ Audrey Hepburn once declared – and for many of us, January can feel like one long bad day. However if you’re in need of a post-Christmas pick-me-up, Charlotte Tilbury just launched the perfect product, and it’s set to brighten up even the greyest of days.
Announcing the exciting news on her Instagram account, make-up artist to the stars Charlotte revealed that she’d been working on a new limited edition lipstick in the suitably-named shade Magic Red.

Darlings, my LIMITED EDITION! MAGIC RED lipstick is the latest shade of my best-selling Matte Revolution formula*. This rich, deep red colour represents luck and love… may it bring you A YEAR OF MAGIC, darlings! 💄✨ *Based on Global Retail Sales. – – #LunarNewYear #MagicRed #HappyNewYear #ShanghaiNights #RedLip #Lipstick #MatteLipstick
The rich, deep red bullet is one of Charlotte’s signature Matte Revolution formulas, and even comes in limited edition red packaging, designed to celebrate the Lunar New Year, which falls on 25 January.
Fans on her Instagram account couldn’t be more obsessed with the gorgeous new hue: ‘I love it! The most beautiful red lipstick ever!’ exclaimed one follower, and another agreed: ‘This just made my year already!❤️💄’
Dozens of others simply posted ‘ordered’, while one who’d already managed to beat the crowds added: ‘I bought this lippie at Sephora and it is GORGEOUS ya’ll!’
In fact, the online celebration was so jubilant, we predict a very quick sellout – and as it’s a limited edition, you need to move fast if you want to be one of the lucky few that gets to add it to their collection.
When Charlotte’s most renowned lipstick is the perfectly pink Pillow Talk, why has she opted for a sultry new red to ring in 2020? Well, ‘the colour has long been considered a symbol of luck and love,’ she explained in her post. ‘I hope these bring you all A YEAR OF MAGIC!’
If a bold lip’s not your thing, the red range also includes a limited edition red-topped version of Magic Cream, which is actually the bestselling product in Charlotte Tilbury’s entire range, across both make-up and skincare.
Loved by A-list clients around the world, one pot of the ‘miracle’ moisturiser is sold every two minutes, thanks to its unique blend of brightening vitamins C and E, hydrating hyaluronic acid, nourishing shea butter and soothing aloe vera.
So if you want to start 2020 with your greatest glow yet, the pot of wonder could well be your new secret weapon…
