Lipsticks Fit For Royalty

Charlotte Tilbury at your lip service

I love lipstick. I love Charlotte Tilbury. At your lip service is the new trilogy of shades inspired by all things regal when it comes to your lipstick wardrobe. It has a neutral rose shade, a hot pink and a wine shade so it’s basically every hue you’d need in your makeup bag together in one swish little set. Seeing all three of these beautiful shades is enough to set a lipstick-lover’s heart racing… They’re all such a dream.

The Duchess

This one is something special. I’d been waiting to get my hands on this beauty for a little while, because soft pink shades like this are my favourite! Tilbs does a few shades like this; Liv it up and Pillow Talk are two of my all time favourite shades so this one is a welcome addition. It’s a soft tea-rose and The Duchess is also named after Kate Middleton, who always has lovely soft makeup!

The formula on this is the standard kissing one. Which means it’s a lot creamier and more comfortable on the lips. This one in particular is a lot softer than a few of her other shades – it reminds me a little of the mac cremesheen formula in that it’s almost a little balmy. Definitely not too long-lasting.

The Queen

This one is a previous release (featured here), inspired as an homage to our Queenie. It’s what I would describe as a grown up pink, with it leaning a little tiny bit towards the fuchsia side of things. It’s not too warm or too cool and it definitely is a nice brightening shade. I mean, I think the Queen looks pretty sassy when she rocks a bright pink lip so I’m all for it. This is the sort of pink shade that you’ll be able to wear a lot. It’s not too bright to be ~shocking~ but it adds a lovely pop of colour for an everyday makeup look.

The formula is the matte revolution, so it’s long-lasting, pigmented and it’s only slightly drying after all day wear. The Tilbs matte formula is definitely one of the best around! It’s comfortable without having too much slip or being too dry. The shade of this one leaves a stain behind on the lips as well.

Legendary Queen

This is described as a soft wine shade, suitable for every skin tone. A wine shade is exactly how I would describe this! It leans a little warmer than you might think, without being too orange or obviously warm-toned. Legendary Queen looks lighter on the lips than in the tube so it’s not as scary as it looks. It has enough brown in it to make it a different twist on your normal red lip; it’s a really easy red shade to wear for day to day. Tilbury describes it as a suit-all shade for a splash of colour that works on all ages.
