This first option may be the priciest at $43, plus shipping, but Charlotte Tilbury’s K.I.S.S.I.N.G signature lipstick range lives up to its ‘luxury’ status in every aspect. ‘Nude Kate’ is the nudest shade in the collection, consisting of a warm, peachy tone. Not only is it super pigmented, but it uses special waxes and light-diffusing properties to enhance the lips and provide natural volume. Furthermore, the secret ingredient – the Lipstick Tree – is an anti-oxidant that protects lips from UV damage and external pollution. This means that ‘Nude Kate’ is the perfect option for a summer wedding or a wedding abroad.
