From a woman requiring no introduction, these lust-have lipsticks are making our mouths water... housed in the best-looking cases we've ever laid eyes on (le sigh), Charlotte Tilbury's new {Hot Lips 2} are the most irresistible bullets you'll meet (just try not to buy one... or seven... we dare you).

Inspired by icons of fashion, film, music and literature, Charlotte has whipped up a spectrum of shades with a mixture of finishes, perfect for helping you emulate all of your favourite AAA-Listers - great when you're desperate to channel your inner Amal or discover your dormant Minogue ('Dancefloor Princess').

From the ultimate knock-em-dead red - inspired by Charlotte's mum {Patsy} - to a clear, ultra-nourishing lipstick that lends every kiss a sheer, freshly licked finish, knowing which one of these beautiful bullets to choose is a bit (*slash* a LOT) overwhelming, so we recommend you acknowledge your (animal) instincts and swiftly secure every leopard print, star-spangled case and get set to sashay down the street feeling faaaaaaabulous (darling!).

With the smooth, creamy {K.I.S.S.I.N.G.} and velvety {Matte Revolution} consistencies, plus the innovative new clear lipstick (inspired by VOGUE's enviably pillow-lipped Editor in Chief, {Edward Enninful}), consider these heavenly textures and colours your ultimate summer accessories. There's a hue to suit all of your moods and occasions, not to mention a line-up of breathtaking cases - each one is certain to earn you some serious side-eye from envious friends (we won't tell if you don't).

So, which one of these sumptuous hues are you going to choose? Get set to pen the next bestselling book with a quick slick of {JK Magic}, or why not fulfil your longstanding ambition to be Rachel Green with the ultimate, late-90s nude, {Glowing Jen}? The world is your... lipstick!
