CHARLOTTE Tilbury’s Pillow Talk lipstick has become a cult classic for makeup fans.
But at £27 per tube, it’s not the cheapest option for beauty fans, especially if you reach for it every day.
Thankfully, professional makeup artist Melissa Sophia found a duplicate for the nude lipstick that’s £19.81 cheaper.
The beauty guru put the two products to the test, applying one to her upper lip and the other to her lower lip, before asking TikTok users if they could tell the difference.
“Actually, they’re different bran and different lipstick, but to me they’re exactly the same shade.”
L’Oreal’s Color Riche lipstick in shade 173 costs just £7.19 and is available from stores such as Boots and Superdrug, as well as larger supermarkets.
Melissa tried both lipsticks on her arm to compare again.
“I mean, it speaks for itself,” she said.
She captioned the clip: “Finally found the best duplicate of the infamous Pillow Talk lipstick. You have to try the shade 173 Color Riche by L’Oreal Paris!”
“Quite literally identical shades and a fraction of the price.”
Other beauty fans were equally impressed with the cheap duplicate, with one commenting, “They are EXACTLY the same, so pretty.”
And a second agreed: “They look identical.”
However, one person said the L’Oréal scammer didn’t look the same on her.
She said: “I have the same lipstick but it doesn’t look like yours on me! What lip liner are you wearing?”
Melissa revealed that she paired the lipstick with a liner from her own brand, MellySophia, in the shade ‘Sandy Touch’.
