It’s notoriously difficult to pin down exactly what beauty products members of the Royal Family use and swear by, but we have been given a clue to Princess Diana’s favourite lip balm from her former make-up artist.

Creating a “Diana” make-up look on Lisa Eldridge’s YouTube channel, MUA Mary Greenwell revealed that she always uses By Terry’s Baume de Rose Lip Care, £40 here, to prep the lips before make-up, so we can take a good guess that it was also used on the late Princess of Wales. “When Princess Diana was young she had the most beautiful skin. She maintained that always,” Mary said in the video.

This iconic lip balm has plenty of celeb fans

Luscious and luxurious, Baume de Rose is regularly hailed as “the Rolls-Royce of lip balms”, and is a long-time favourite with make-up artists, beauty editors and other celebs such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Kim Kardashian. And now this little pot of joy has just been given an update, delivering colour as well as care.

By Terry has just launched two new limited edition Baume de Rose Tinted Lip Cares, £16 each here, which puts the nourishing formula of the iconic balm into a lipgloss-style tube. They’re available in two shades: Red Carpet (a classic bright red) and Cherry Chérie (a deeper berry tone). Like the original, these two newbies contain rich shea butter, skin-strengthening ceramides and a subtle rose fragrance for a glossy pout that also pampers the lips. We wonder if these are set to become new royal favourites…?

Two new variations of Baume de Rose Lip Care

If you’re looking for a cheaper way to perfect your pout, however, we’ve found a bargain alternative to another celeb-fave lip balm. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is a favourite with new mum Molly-Mae Hague – even making its way into her hospital bag – but at £19, it’s quite a splurge. This £4.50 one, however, is remarkably similar – and £15.50 cheaper!

Looks like our lips are going to be in tip top condition this winter!
