A Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Dupe?

One of the first lipsticks I ever bought was Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Kate Lipstick in shade 03. I started with nude shades before moving onto anything bolder and this was my go-to shade for a long time. It goes with everything, lasts for ages, smells gorgeous and was a great starting colour. I love it so much that I buy it over and over again.

And then I discovered Charlotte Tilbury. I ordered three lipsticks: Bitch Perfect, Coachella Coral and Amazing Grace. Now it turns out, Bitch Perfect and Rimmel’s 03 are pretty much exactly the same.

Here, the colour closest to me is Rimmel, and the shade closest to my watch is Charlotte Tilbury.

With CT’s Bitch Perfect at £23.00 and Rimmel’s 03 at just £5.50 you’d expect a fairly noticeable difference in performance, but there really isn’t. Both of these lipsticks last a decent amount of time, smell equally nice and in all honesty I couldn’t say that one is definitely better than the other.

Have you tried either of these lipsticks? What did you think?

    I LOVE Rimmel 03 and use it almost every day. I couldn’t agree more! It’s such good quality, but I really need a new one as its nearly run out 🙁

    Great post <3

    Rimmel 03 was one of the first lipsticks I bought too!! I forgot about it for so long but I have been wearing it a lot recently. I really need to get some more Rimmel lipsticks, the formula of this one is amazing x

    Sometimes I think we’re just paying for the name on the packaging… So often I find cheaper brands that look just as good. I like the look of this shade. I’m a lipgloss kinda girl because I’ve never found a lipstick that I think suits my unbelievably tiny mouth lol, but I might try this Rimmel one xx

    Do you have a good dupe for the Amazing Grace shade?
