the delilah story
delilah was born out of friendship, a passion for cosmetics, and the desire to help women of all ages to look and feel beautiful.
The team behind delilah is Rupert Kingston, Hannah Nicholson and Juliet White. Rupert spent many years in the industry as a make-up artist and Creative Director and has developed numerous award-winning cosmetics. Hannah has had a long career as a beauty buyer specialized in product development and working with some of the world’s most prestigious cosmetics manufacturers. Juliet, a photographer whose work has featured in The New York Times and Rolling Stone, brings her expertise in imagery, graphics and design to delilah.
Driven by the lack of boutique British brands, the team has poured all its experience and expertise into delilah. They were inspired by an abundance of quintessentially English influences, from Britannia Metal, a traditional semi precious, pewter coloured metal that inspired the design of the packaging, to the crown gold accents that run through the whole line. Crown gold was a rose coloured gold introduced by Henry VIII to replace the gold sovereign. Finally, of course, the symbol, the beautiful pale pink Delilah rose, a true icon of British beauty.
delilah has been created as a capsule collection of carefully formulated cosmetics which offers women a touch of understated luxury they can enjoy every day. All our cosmetics are paraben free and no animal testing has been conducted or commissioned for any delilah products.
