If there's one thing to know about the high street, it's that its beauty offering has never been better. Yes, brands like Maybelline and L'Oréal Paris have always been brilliant, but arrivals from the likes of e.l.f. and NYX Professional Makeup have meant that we've never had so much choice from a wander around Boots and Superdrug.
Hailey Bieber recently shared a GRWM style video on her TikTok that included the ultimate lipliner that creates her chic, minimalist nude lip. Her liner of choice? The Make Up Forever Artist Colour Pencil in the shade Anywhere Caffeine, £15. Indeed, the liner is dreamy: matte, creamy and densely pigmented. So dreamy, in fact, it's been sold out since Hailey waxed lyrical about it. Predictable, really...
The perpetually savvy Tiktok users, though, have found an alternative. And yes, you guessed it: it's a high street buy, from none other than NYX Professional Makeup. Catch Hailey in action using the Make Up Forever Lipliner to see how it competes with TikTok's high street find:
Watch: Hailey Bieber's Nude Lip Pencil vs. NYX's Nude Lip Pencil
As the video demonstrates, both options lend a subtle fleshy colour to lips: NYX's offering leans more toward a beige nude, and Make Up Forever's more a muted rose. Hailey softens the edges of the lipliner with her fingers to create the a natural your-lips-but-better shade, but if you prefer a finish that feels a little more 'done', forego the blotting and leave the lips overdrawn.
If you can't wait for the Make Up Forever to come back into stock, give thanks to the mega sleuthing skills delivered to us from TikTok. You can shop the NYX shade that'll give you Haliey Bieber-esque lips, below.
