Reportedly, the queen uses Elizabeth Arden’s Beautiful Colour Lipsticks.
The queen is apparently a big fan of lipstick. She’s even been spotted reapplying lipstick in public a few times. In 2016, unnamed sources confirmed to The Telegraph that one of the queen’s go-to lipsticks are from Elizabeth Arden’s Beautiful Colour collection.
The brand Elizabeth Arden has held a royal warrant for decades, meaning they have an ongoing trading arrangement with and have supplied goods and services to the queen, Duke of Edinburgh, or Prince of Wales for at least five years. So, there’s a pretty good chance that royals have used a number of different products or services from Elizabeth Arden.
These lipsticks retail for $US26.50 each on the Elizabeth Arden website.
