These Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are a longtime love of former editorial director Faith Xue and Megan Markle’s favorite shade is Very Victoria, and we’re constantly covering them on our site. Their creamy-matte formula works for an easy wash of color or a bolder look. They epitomize what lipsticks should look and feel like—quick to reapply in the bathroom after lunch, always fading evenly. In our opinion, the mini-size is a bonus. You get to try three shades for the price of one.
