I've picked up several new Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks lately (all of which will be appearing on my blog over the coming weeks) but one that has quickly become my everyday staple is the Charlotte Tilbury The Duchess Lipstick. This is now my go-to Spring lipstick and I absolutely love it. Its that pretty pink shade that compliments the Spring Season perfectly, in fact I adore it so much I've just ordered another so I always have one at home and one in my handbag. Inspired by Kate Middleton in the favourable K.I.S.S.I.N.G formula, The Duchess now sits alongside the new 'Legendary Queen' (in the Matte Revolution formula) and the the award winning 'The Queen' (also in the Matte Revolution formula), forming a trio of 'Royal Inspired' lipsticks.
A tea rose that leans more of a pale rosy pink on me with my cooler-toned complexion. I know a few people have mentioned they were expecting it to have a little more mauve in it, I find this to be a dusky rose pink with the slightest hint of peach, deeper than a pastel pink without being too vibrant. Its my kind of shade for sure and very wearable for everyday. It's a pink without being 'too pink' if that makes sense, its not too bright but bright enough to make my eyes pop, and give my complexion some warmth which I love. I like to pair it with Pillow Talk Lip Cheat Lip Liner and I find this combination is really long-wearing. A very flattering shade that is just so easy to wear.
The Charlotte Tilbury The Duchess Lipstick comes in the popular K.I.S.S.I.N.G formula which produces a highly moisturising and glossy effect. I've been wearing Charlotte's Matte Revolution formula for the past few months so I am finding this a lovely lighter change to accompany my Spring makeup. The product feels creamy, conditioning and hydrating with the right amount of shine.
Comparing to other Charlotte Tilbury Shades
If you like Charlotte Tilbury's cult classic Pillow Talk or the recent English Beauty lipstick shade then this is one that is definitely worth a try. I find it to be more pink than 'Pillow Talk', to pack a little more punch than 'English Beauty', and a little more subtle than 'American Sweetheart'. Its become one of my all time favourites already.
