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?
