Can we all agree that Meghan Markle always manages to look effortless and chic? Her easy breezy vibe isn’t new — the Los Angeles native has been nailing laid-back looks for years, long before she was on the road to royalty. There’s got to be something in the west coast water that makes its residents always seem soooo cool.
But the 36-year-old’s lipstick of choice isn’t from some LA-based beauty brand that only those in SoCal are privy to. It’s actually a nod to her soon-to-be homeland. People is reporting that the nearly nude lipstick she’s so often photographed wearing is by celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury’s eponymous line. And the hue? It’s called Very Victoria, inspired by none other than Posh Spice herself.
A tube of this taupe matte lipstick retails for $39 and can be purchased in Canada on Charlotte Tilbury’s website. By royal standards, that sounds like a steal of a deal, and if it’s good enough for Vicky B, then it’s good enough for a princess in the making.
The milky cappuccino hue looks versatile, but it’s always hard to commit to a new product without trying it on. If you’re curious whether or not this Markle-approved lipstick will work on you, the Charlotte Tilbury website offers photos of 10 different women of various ethnicities and skin tones wearing the shade, so you can get an idea of how you might look.
All of the Spice Girls have received invites to the upcoming nuptials on May 19, and during a television interview on The Real, Mel B hinted that the ’90s girl group just might perform at the big event.

So, is Posh allowed to wear the Charlotte Tilbury Very Victoria lipstick to the royal wedding if there’s a chance that the bride might select that hue, too? Or is that some kind of beauty faux pas, comparable to an attendee showing up in a white lace gown?
Perhaps as long as you’re an honorary guest (read: watching the ceremony unfold from behind the screen of your laptop as Twitter updates flood in), applying a swipe of Very Victoria seems only fitting.
