Kate Middleton and her royal family definitely have something to celebrate. A Princess Charlotte-inspired lipstick by Marc Jacobs is hitting the shelves in an exclusive and luxurious launch! The lipstick, simply named “Charlotte,” is part of the Le Mark lip crème collection.
The color reflects the “deepest saturated pink tones of an English rose,” said Catherine Gore, global vice president and general manager of Marc Jacobs Beauty.
At the moment, Harrods in the United Kingdom will be the exclusive purveyor for the Princess Charlotte shade, which will sell for approximately $34, reports Women’s Wear Daily. The Color Hall will make the shade available throughout the month of February.
After that, if you want to purchase the lip color, you will find it only at Harrods’ White Hall location for (approximately) the next two years.
Princess Charlotte, as far as we know, is the first Royal to receive such an honor. Not even Kate Middleton has inspired a lipstick color. Of course, the Duchess of Cambridge’s iconic engagement ring has been copied the world over, but that wasn’t because of Duchess Kate. The obsession with the sapphire engagement ring began with Princess Diana in 1981.
Will the lip color ever be available in the United States? Right now, the international beauty company has no plans to make “Charlotte” available outside the United Kingdom. However, if “Charlotte” is the bestselling debut of any other color, most likely the cosmetics company will cash in on its popularity around the globe.
Princess Charlotte’s late grandmother Princess Diana has been known as “England’s Rose” since her tragic death in 1997. The world is aware that the Elton John song “Goodbye England’s Rose” was rewritten from the song “Goodbye Norma Jean” specifically for Diana’s funeral.
Now Diana’s granddaughter Charlotte has a lip color named for her which has been inspired by the color of English roses. Kate Middleton should be proud that Princess Charlotte, at only nine-months-old, has already influenced the cosmetic industry.
