The £1 Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Dupe.

 If you've not heard the hype around Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk Lip Cheat pencil, you must have been living under a rock. Of course I needed the lip pencil in my life and have been using it religiously for a good few months now. I've never been a lip liner wearer, but since discovering the CT options, I'm certainly a convert.

Last week when I was browsing Primark's make up section, I spotted a lip liner than reminded me so much of Pillow Talk. I added it to my basket and was completely blown away when I saw how similar the pencils are. The biggest difference is the price - CT's offering is priced at a steep £16, where as Primark's alternative is a tiny £1. So with a £15 difference, is it worth splashing the extra cash?

Both pencils have a really creamy formula, that is both comfortable and non-drying on the lips. Pillow Talk is a slightly softer pencil and therefore doesn't require as much pressure to apply, however this is a minor difference between the two. Pillow Talk is a slightly pinkier toned pencil, where as Primark's pick is a little more brown - but all in all, that's about the only differences I could find.

I will always have a soft spot for CT make up, but I think I'd rather save my pennies and splurge them on an eye palette. For me, the £1 lip liner is an absolute steal and has certainly become my go-to pencil.

  9. Excellent! I love you a good dupe :) I've always wanted to try some CT makeup but I just can't justify the price to myself.
    I've equally never tried Primark's makeup as I was concerned about the quality. I'll now be giving it a go!

  10. I love this lipstick. Granted, it tastes a bit like wax crayon but for a pound, you can't go wrong! x

  11. I'm considering running to Primark and buying a million lip liners now haha. Thanks for posting!!!!

  13. I have this lip pencil, but it's been tucked away in a drawer since I bought it, until I saw this post! Not a huge lip liner fan and I'm currently trying to build up my collection.
    I will say this is a great pencil now I've used it, I love the colour!
