The High Street Pillowtalk Dupe?

It's no secret I love me some make-up, and the Kylie Jenner lip liner trend has been covered by pretty much every beauty blogger out there.

I've not got the cash to splash out on the high end lip liners, that are apparently 'the one' that miss Jenner actually uses, so I've been on the hunt for the perfect high street lip liner, and I think I may have just found it!

Rimmel's Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob is a complete bargain at £3.99, and from the different brands I've tried this is by far my favourite.

Unlike other lip liners, this has a very creamy texture, which doesn't feel like I'm scratching a pencil across my lips! This makes application a doddle, and can be used to fully fill in your lip if you want that matte lip look.

I chose the colour Eastend Snob, which I've heard since that is a perfect dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk liner which is a steep £16. Unless you've the money to splash on the CT, the Rimmel £3.99 does a great job! I don't think there is anything more I would want from a lip liner.

What I'm wearing: Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob, with The Bodyshop Colour Crush Shine Lipstick in 11 Nude Allure.

I love how it twists up, rather than needing to be sharpened. I think this gives an easier application and there's no fear of breaking any product off.

It feels really moisturising and the lasting power is great. I'm constantly kissing Aria and getting drool-coated fingers forced into my mouth, so I have good authority to tell you that this lasts ages on your lips before needing to be reapplied.

It's natural enough to use on an every day basis, giving that 'my lips but better' look, but can also be built up for a full on Kylie look. Personally, the full on look isn't for me as I'm still getting used to the lip liner look on myself, but overall I do think liner finishes off any make-up look perfectly.

Have you tried the Rimmel London Exaggerate Lip Liner?
