Cheap Dupe - Kylie Jenner Nude Lip / MAC Soar
Been into MAC recently? Asked for the Soar lip pencil?
Well if you haven't let me tell you every branch and concessions' response:
"Sorry. Out of stock."
I suspect it may have something to do with the fact that a certain Miss Kylie Jenner recently confirmed this bit of kit is her nude pout pencil of choice.
In a hunt for an alternative "your lips but better" liner I stumbled across a cheap-o stand at the back of Beauty Base in Westfield, Stratford City.
LA Girl USA An American brand similar to our MUA, stocks an assortment of products which are - shall we say - "inspired" by higher end products.
I wasn't expecting much from the retractable Endless Auto Lipliner that I found in the shade Natural (GP333) but at just £1.50 I popped it into my basket anyway.
That £1.50 turned out to be the best beauty buy of the year! Yes, yes, I know it's only February...but let me explain!
Natural is a mid-tone pinkish brown (just like Soar) which boasts a creamy formulation that glides on effortlessly. It also lines precisely and filling in your lips is an absolute doddle even for novice lip liners like myself.
In contrast to MAC's offering, the retractable pen style also eradicates the need for messy sharpeners but still boasts the same impressive staying power of it's £12.50 counterpart.
On hastily returning to Beauty Base to buy a back up (or ten), I was gutted to find the display that a housed these pencils a week earlier completely empty.
Fortunately after some hunting online I found the LA Girl website and this eBay seller both whom ship internationally and placed an order.
So there you go. A £1.50 dupe from a little know brand which actually exceeds all expectation as a great, cheaper alternative for make-up lovers most sought after lip liner.
Although whenever Miss Jenner's plump pout is exclusively down to just a lip pencil...
...well - I'll leave that one for you to decide! :)
