The Best Luxury & Affordable Everyday Nude Lip Liners

Lip liner was a step I used to skip without even batting an eyelid – now I have 9 that I consider my most worn… How times change eh! They’re all quite similar falling under either the nude or pink category. So, here’s the best nude, everyday lip liners I reach for most.

The Best Dupes For The Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk Lip Cheat

I raved about the GOSH Lip Liner in Nougat Crisp  £4.99 in my recent ‘Four to Try’ post because it’s so similar to the Charlotte Tilbury ‘Pillowtalk’ lip cheat. The formula is softer compared to regular lip pencils, making it easy to slightly over line the lips for a fuller look. The shade Nougat Crisp is a lovely rose pink which I find perfect for everyday. I’ll definitely be repurchasing this when I run out. On to the real deal, the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk. This is the perfect, wearable muted pink shade. Although it’s similar to the GOSH lipliner, it is slightly lighter in shade. It’s the formulation of the Lip Cheats that makes them worth the money for me. I love how easy it is to make my lips look slightly fuller without having to over line too much.

Another dupe for Pillowtalk except slightly more on the pink side is the Rimmel Exaggerate Lipliner in Eastend Snob £3.99. This has more of a creamy formulation. but is still incredibly long lasting. Plus, it doesn’t leave my lips feeling dry at all, my absolute pet peeve when it comes to lipliners. The main difference compared to Pillowtalk is that t’s more of a true pink, still beautiful though.

MAC Spice Lip Liner And Dupe

When I’m going for a brown/ peach toned nude lip I tend to reach for MAC Spice £15. This is the perfect nude/ brown shade. It works so well with my beloved Velvet Teddy lipstick. I think MAC lipliners are definitely worth the hype as the staying power is unreal. I’ve found that they do last longer on the lips compared to more affordable options. A close dupe to this (so much so they even have the same name!) is Rimmel’s Spice £3.50. This is such a good dupe that it almost seems a little wasteful to opt for the £15 MAC option. Out of all the more affordable lipliners I’ve tried Rimmel definitely seem to have the best range. Both the Rimmel Exaggerate and normal lipliners are brilliant, I just wish they did more shades! In the swatches and on the lips Rimmel Spice does come out slightly more red toned, but still a fab option for nude/ brown lipsticks.



Two Favourites From MAC

A staple for the days when I want a really natural lip look is MAC Dervish £15. This is so underrated, I love using this with lip balm as it matches the colour of my lips almost perfectly. Another favourite from MAC is Whirl £15, I picked this up when everyone was raving about it, I’m sure it was one of Kylie Jenner’s faves!? Anyway, I tend to wear this with mauve toned lipsticks and it matches them perfectly, I’m yet to find a MAC lipliner I don’t love and use constantly.

Favourite Affordable Lip Liners

The lip liner that tends to live in my handbag is the L’Oreal Color Riche Lip Liner  in Beige a Nu £3.99. I find this shade to be super flattering, not too pink and not too brown. It’s the perfect in between. I don’t find this to be too drying either, and I’ll wear it on it’s own for a matte lip look. A bargain for £3.99! Lastly is my first lipliner purchase around 3 years ago, the NYX Lip Liner Pencil in Mauve £3. I picked this up way before NYX was in the UK, although on it’s last legs now I can’t bring myself to throw it! It’s a lovely mauve/ rose pink shade which is the colour I tend to reach for most days (if you hadn’t already noticed)!

L-R – NYX Mauve, GOSH Nougat Crisp, MAC Whirl, L’Oreal Beige a Nu, Rimmel Spice, MAC Dervish, MAC Spice, CT Pillowtalk, Rimmel Eastend Snob

I think from this it’s quite clear I have a type when it comes to lipliners… What’s your most worn lip liner?

  8. Claire says:

    I literally can't get enough of lip liners, my collection has grown from 0 to around 15 in the space of a year haha. I'm currently obsess with NYX, Max Factor also have a gorgeous formula, I like Mac Soar, but it just fells so dry compared to my beloved Pillow

  15. Laura P says:

    I don't own many lip liners but I love East End Snob, I haven't worn it for a while actually! The only downside is how easily it can snap. My favourite liner is MAC Soar, I totally agree with you that MAC lip liners are worth the hype! xoLaura | Blush and Bronze

    Love these picks Jodie, I'm actually so useless with liner. I use Pillow Talk liner quite a lot but it's the only one I regularly use. Definitely going to save this post as a wish list, and start picking up some Rimmel and Mac ones!The Makeup Directory
