Survive the Summer with Charlotte Tilbury’s Royal Trio: Lipstick Review


Summer is one of the most fun times, especially as a creative working in the heart of the city! While I love to sport something calm to pair with a work outfit, it also needs to be something I can enhance with an evening look for a media event.  One of my favourite beauty companies is without question, Charlotte Tilbury.  From their foundation to lipsticks and even perfume, I have never been disappointed with pieces I have either received to review or purchased myself. Because when the celebrity designer collections were out including the Kim K.W was released as soon as I could I was at Holt Renfrew tapping my credit card so I could have the luxurious colour on my lips!

I have been to the store to pick up a designer lipstick or lipgloss before and been disappointed but never with Tilbury herself. From working with celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian she is always outdoing herself with incredible shades.  There is also a shade called Bitch Perfect which is a pretty silly name but I absolutely adore it!

While the stunning Meghan Markle wore a gown that was on the simpler side, I love that the Tilbury Collection is available to rock some stellar British Royal Inspired Shades from At Your Service: Royal Lipstick Trio.  She looked absolutely perfect from head to toe on the day of the Royal Wedding but just like me she keeps her beauty routine simple and classic, which is why I love that The Duchess is also a fave of mine.


The reds are pretty bold for me, so hopefully, I can feel confident enough to sport them at some of the many weddings I have coming up throughout the summer and into the fall.  The Legendary Queen shade is a close second but while I love them all there is one that I will ( and have ) worn much more than the rest.

My absolute fave has to be The Duchess!! It could not be more perfectly named.  With the others being called The Queen, and The Legendary Queen they could not be more perfectly named.  And as the fall rolls in, the Legendary Queen I can see pairing with some holiday and fall inspired looks.  Also with TIFF  not too far away – it will be exciting to feel like a celebrity on the red carpet with these stunning rose & red swatches.  Little black dresses look perfect when paired to a shade from the Royal Trio Tilbury Collection.

Lipsticks from Left to Right, The Duchess, The Queen, The Legendary Queen.


I am wearing The Duchess right now – and with my upcoming nuptials next Spring of 2019 maybe it will be the shade I wear on the big day! I will definitely need a makeup artist for some foundation help but with lipstick like this, I will be keeping it on me for little touch-ups on the big day.

Which is your favourite? Would love to hear in the comments below 🙂

Best always ❤

Juno Awards Beauty Essentials

Getting ready for any party means looking fresh and fabulous.  From the moment you wake up to your contour and blush, all of the pieces are just as important.

juno party

As I will be attending the Casper Viewing Party for the Juno Awards, I am prepping my look. While still deciding on a dress ( which may just turn out to be an LBD ) it all starts with great hair.

Whether using a service like BeGlammed or a DIY style yourself, for the freshest hair I suggest Garnier Fructis

No matter whether pastel hues or bold shades, you will want a neutral yet defining lipstick. For the last year or so I have stood by my brilliant Tilbury shades.  Nothing says red carpet like Bond Girl, by Charlotte Tilbury.

Last finishing touch, you cannot go wrong with a hint ( or a lot ) of face and body glitter.  Having this brilliant pink shade from NYX it will be sure to hit all the right spots.

Throughout the week I will be testing out these fabulous products and posting reviews.

Best always,

Melissa ❤
