The Queen and Catherine now both have a lipstick named after them.
The Queen and her granddaughter-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, are two of the world’s most popular style icons and now they each have a lipstick shade.
Top make-up giant Charlotte Tilbury‘s latest shades have been inspired by the royals, each offering a subtle colour that would likely suit both women. And while many women already have a tried and tested shade they wear each day, thousands will no doubt be rushing out to get their hands on the new royal hues.
The new collection includes a rose pink shade named ‘The Duchess’, as part of the K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick line, and is available for UK£24 (AU$43). Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth has got her own shade, too – this one aptly named Legendary Queen in a matte, red wine hue to match her love of darker colours on royal outings.
The new shades sit alongside Tilbury’s already well-established shade ‘The Queen’, which is a darker red-tinted colour.
Describing her ‘Legendary Queen’ colour, Tilbury writes: “Darlings, this NEW & EXCLUSIVE lipstick is fit for a QUEEN. My Matte Revolution Lipstick in Legendary Queen is a globally-gorgeous soft neutral wine shade so you can be the BEAUTY queen of lip looks with this dazzling colour. This matte lipstick has all the ingredients for a lit-from-within pout including triglycerides, antioxidants and 3D glowing pigments.”
Meanwhile, she adds of ‘The Duchess’: “My K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in The Duchess is a splendidly sophisticated tea-rose pink shade so you can treat yourself like royalty!”
It comes after Catherine’s make-up artist Arabella Preston gave fans an insight into her makeup routine in an interview with W magazine. She insisted a facial oil is essential in anyone’s daily routine, and added: “If you ask a pro makeup artist how they prep skin, they say a facial oil nine times out of 10.”
While Catherine often chooses a subtle pink lipstick, the Queen is regularly pictured with a classic, darker red-tinted colour, along with bright clothes and a hat to match.
