Beauty ¦ High street vs High end - Nude pairs


At the moment I am absolutely obsessed with nude lips so today I thought I'd show you my favourite High end pairing and my favourite High street pairing and do a little comparison.
 
 
In terms of colour the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow talk lip cheat  and the Rimmel exaggerate liner in east end snob are very similar. East end snob is a little darker and has more mauve-y tones whereas Pillow talk is lighter and on the more peachy side of nude. I really like the formula of both these liners however I do find that Pillow talk is slightly creamier and a little more hydrating. In terms of longevity they are pretty similar, both fade nicely and don't leave patchy colour on the lips after food and drink.
 
Lipstick wise the two shades are completely different, Charlotte Tilbury's K.I.S.S.I.N.G. lipstick in the shade Bitch perfect is a beautiful quite light peachy nude with a slight gloss to it whereas the Bourjois Rouge edition 12 hours in Beige shooting is a very dark mauve-y nude with a more satin-y finish. The formula's are similar both lipsticks apply well and leave the lips well hydrated. I do find that sometimes Beige shooting can emphasise any dry patches on the lips but as long as I use a lip balm underneath this isn't a problem.
 
Overall if you are looking for that Kylie Jenner lip shade then in this instance I'd recommend the drugstore pairing however my heart personally lies with Charlotte Tilbury's offering. I personally prefer the peachy nude on my skin tone and I mean have you seen the packaging?

  3. I have the Bourjois lipstick and absolutely love it, so impressed with the formula considering it's a high street product. However that's not to say I wouldn't love to get my hands on a CT one ;)

  6. CT lip liner in pillow talk is my favourite lip liner ever! I'm on my 3rd (or maybe 4th) and can't live without it! I have to try CT bitch perfect, it's on my wish list since last year!!!!

  7. Love the colours and will definitely be considering this post when I go to buy my next nude lipstick. It's always so hard to find a decent nude lipstick for me, I have olive skin so they either look too pink or pale... Thank you!
