Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, joined husband Prince Harry at 2023's Invictus Games in Düsseldorf earlier this week and her grand entrance was nothing short of show-stopping. Not only did Meghan crash the J. Crew website, simply by wearing one of their contrasting cardigans (her pleated Staud shorts were a big hit too), but she sent beauty obsessives into a spin by switching up her signature lipstick shade.


Already renowned for her proficiency in the beauty arena - it is reported that Meghan did her own hair and make-up for her first appearance at the Invictus Games this year - Meghan's favourite make-up products have long been a subject of fascination for longtime Suits devotees, royal fans and beauty aficionados alike. Between historic The Tig articles and quotes from Meghan's dear friend and go-to make-up artist Daniel Martin, many have been able to piece together the makings of Meghan's beauty mainstays and this week a new lipstick joined the line-up.

Handily for Meghan followers still mourning the loss of her official Instagram account five years on - the Duchess of Sussex shut down her hugely successful lifestyle blog The Tig and her Instagram account in 2018 - a number of impressively active Instagram handles exist purely to break down Meghan's latest fashion and beauty looks and they do so in double quick time. One such handle, @meghansclosetchronicles, joined forces with the now iconic @meghansmirrorblog this week to lock down the exact shade of lipstick Meghan wore to watch the Invictus Games 2023 wheelchair basketball final between the United States and France.

Underneath a @meghansclosetchronicles post that detailed Meghan's outfit, jewellery and accessories, one follower - - asked for her lipstick shade. Instagram user @nickibeautiful replied with the details and @meghansmirrorblog jumped in to confirm, writing 'confirmed this colour with our sources! Great colour on her, isn't it?'

A rosy take on nude, Meghan's satin finish lipstick is none other than Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria, £27. If you're sold on the look we recommend adding to basket sharpish. If J. Crew's crashed website this week is anything to go by, this Charlotte Tilbury classic could well prove a sellout.

A rosy take on nude, this shade offers a softer and ever so slightly paler iteration of the brand's iconic Pillow Talk shade.

Most agree that you can't go wrong with a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick and Meghan's latest pick has proved a real hit with her fans. After Instagram followers of Meghan focused handles @meghanclosetchronicles and @meghansmirrorblog asked for all the details, the Instagram channels came up trumps and revealed that - according to sources - the nude-meets-pink shade the Duchess wore at 2023's Invictus Games was none other than Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria.


  • If you're a fan of Charlotte Tilbury's iconic Pillow Talk shade but you're after an iteration that's slightly softer, paler and pinker in tone, look no further.
  • The lipstick formula offers a satin-matte finish without flakiness - it's hydrating enough to keep lips feeling plush for hours.
  • The satin-matte finish offers a subtle hint of lustre that makes lips appear fuller than a full-on matte formula would.


  • If you're a gloss devotee, this one's not for you, though if you're hooked on the colour try applying a clear one over the top.
