The iconic Lip Cheat liner can make lips look bigger for hours.

The transforming power of makeup is one of the reasons we all love it. Charlotte Tilbury is a master at producing products that enhance the face and mouth. Who among us doesn’t want to push the perimeter of our pout now and then? Big sexy lips never go out of style, and Lip Cheat lip liner is a surprisingly perfect lip plumping tool. Forget filler, this iconic lip liner can create the illusion of fuller lips with the swipe of your hand. Just use this smooth and lasting pencil and overline your borders to your heart’s content. Not to worry, your handy work won’t budge for at least six hours (mine lasted as long). Does that mean it’s also kiss proof? I’d never tell. Let’s jump into Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner Review.

Promises vs. Performance: Redefined, fuller looking lips. You pouty mouth!

“Sexy lips” means something different to everyone. But, if you want to play with the look of big lips, this little pencil might as well be a magic wand. Charlotte Tilbury’s brand makes a lot of strong claims about this liner’s potential to fake a plump pout. It’s said to have a “rich, velvety formula” that can “instantly redefine your lips” to make them look bigger. This lasting, waterproof liner should also be a good base for your lipstick, making it go on smoothly and stay. Tilbury even includes Lip Cheat as a key step in her recommended method for “How to Get Fuller Lips.”

My Review Thoughts: Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner

I had been a fan of Lip Cheat long before I did a full face of just Charlotte Tilbury cosmetics, you know, for science. (In which I discovered Hollywood Flawless Filter, my new favorite bottle of glow.) As expected, Lip Cheat was everything I want in a liner. True to its claims, this creamy lip pencil glided on smoothly and helped me make the most of my lip shape. This long wearing liner did not budge all day. For at least six hours, I enjoyed the look of more defined, shapely, supple lips that this product helped me achieve. The versatile hue of Iconic Nude was beautiful. It layered perfectly under Tilbury’s Hot Lips 2 Lipstick in Dancefloor Princess for a flirty pink look. I also think it would also be perfect for creating the trendy, 90s inspired overlined lip look.

How It Compares: Why lip Cheat is the best lip liner.

Charlotte Tilbury makes great lip products. They’re some of the best lip liners and best lipsticks available in the professional makeup price range. They’re also my favorite products offered by the brand. Lip Cheat liner does so much more than just outline your lips. Its silky formula is easy to draw with to create any lip shape you crave. Once your lips are lined and filled to perfection, this product stays put for hours. Want to top Lip Cheat with lipstick? Cast your worries about bleeding, feathering, or smudging away. That’s because the waterproof lip pencil provides the perfect grip for whatever comes next. You’re sure to find a shade (or five) that’s perfect for you, as the ever-expanding range includes at least 17 to choose from.

Milabu Beauty Method: Perfect your pout.

  1. Exfoliate and hydrate! These are two crucial steps to a long lasting, flawless lip. I like to first exfoliate with the Fresh Sugar Lip Polish ($18), then swipe a hydrating balm across my lips to let them soak up some extra moisture while I do my makeup.
  2. Line the lips. Ensure your lip pencil is freshly sharpened for a precise application. Line the outline of your lips, or overline if you choose. Some people like to fill in their entire lips with liner, but I bring mine about halfway into the center.
  3. Once your liner is on, you’re ready for your lippie. I love that I can pair just about any lipstick with Charlotte Tilbury’s Iconic Nude shade. Whether it’s a liquid, cream, or stain formula, they all sit well over top.
