Charlotte Tilbury's first launch of 2023 is here

There are few brands that ooze the same sophistication and elegance as Charlotte Tilbury. For as long as our beauty brainbox can remember, the undisputed queen of flawless faces and perfectly-pink pouts have infatuated us with its high-quality formulas and luxe packaging.

If you’re a loyal follower, you’ll know that 2022 saw some stand-out launches – including the Beautiful Skin Foundation and Radiant Concealer – and while the hype hasn’t settled, things have hit the ground running for 2023. The new Hollywood Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighter is the latest product to hit the brand’s legendary line-up, and it already has our pulses racing.

Encased in the iconic rose gold packaging, this powder formula is inspired by the blinding spotlights of the glamorous red carpet. Designed to mimic the same light-reflecting cheekbones of Hollywood's finest, in just one fell swoop the highlighter delivers a subtle shimmer – rather than an all-out glitter shot –, illuminating your complexion from the inside out.

In true Tilbury fashion, the essence of this highlighter is to create multi-dimensional and sky-high cheekbones that still appear completely natural. And it doesn't end there, glide the product over your nose bridge, brow bone and even cupid's bow to help sculpt, lift and lighten your face in all the right areas.

Despite the powder formula, its silky, buttery texture makes it a far cry from anything that looks cakey or dusty. The rich pigment and soft-focus finish leaves the most radiant and red-carpet-ready result on any complexion. Plus, with seven (yes, seven) shades to choose from, Tilbury certainly knows how to cater for every skin tone, from fair to dark.

And don’t just take our word for it – as we all know, Charlotte Tilbury is a brand well known for its high-profile clientele. To showcase the new launch, brand ambassadors like Lily James and Jourdan Dunn (as well as Tilbury herself) took to the red carpet to limelight their radiant cheekbones – thanks to the new highlighter, of course.

So while the Beauty Light Wands will always remain a firm favourite, we are more than happy to welcome this £38 glow-giver into our makeup bags for a flattering, easy-going shimmer. But be sure to secure one soon, as a sell-out status is looming.
