Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect Lipstick vs MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick



I am a huge lipstick addict at the minute. I haven’t been able to wear lipstick in the longest time because of how chapped my lips constantly are. I have been treating my lips for ages now and finally they are getting better so I have ventured into the wide world of lipstick!

I am always on the hunt for the perfect neutral lipstick for my skin tone. I love nude lips, but because of my olive skin tone nudes can end up looking white on my lips. So I have been trying for ages to try and the perfect shade for me, and with these two I think I have the perfect shades.

I wanted to do a comparison post because they are similar and both of them have been my two go to lipsticks for the longest time, but there are big differences between them so I just wanted to go through some of them in case you are thinking about investing in either of these lipsticks.


First, I want to mention the packaging. I think from looking at these products you really can see a mile off how stunning the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick packaging is. They are vintage inspired and just make the whole thing feel so much more luxurious than normal lipstick packaging. For the MAC lipstick the packaging is nice and basic, but that is just how it looks at the side of the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick.

Now for the colour of these shades. My go to Charlotte Tilbury shade is Bitch Perfect and my favourite MAC shade is by a mile Velvet Teddy. I think both of these shades are the perfect colours for my skin tone. I would say that the Charlotte Tilbury is a touch pinker in tone and the Velvet Teddy is more mauve.



The texture of these lipsticks are really different. The MAC Velvet Teddy is a very matte lipstick. When I line my lips and then apply this over the top after an hour or so my lips are super dry, which isn’t great for my chapped lips. I stay on top of it by just applying a gloss or chapstick over the top to keep them hydrated. With the Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect it is a naturally smooth and moisturising lipstick, I don’t have to worry about my lips getting dry when I use this shade.

Lastly I want to mention the staying power. As the MAC Velvet Teddy is a matte shade it has incredible staying power. If I apply this in a morning I can go about my business and eat and drink anything and not worry about it budging. With the Charlotte Tilbury and it been a creamier formula it does wear off easier.

Even though the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are £23 and the MAC is only £15.50, I have to admit that I would gravitate more towards the Bitch Perfect shade. Not that I am saying that the MAC is bad because that really isn’t the case, I just prefer the Charlotte Tilbury over them.

As normal here on my blog I will leave links below in case you want to check out these lipsticks. Also, if you have any comments or questions please feel free to leave them below and then I will get right back to you!

    1. Pillow Talk is one of my other favourites by Charlotte Tilbury, but I think this one just takes the top spot for me!

    1. I know what you mean, when I am wearing Velvet Teddy I just make sure I have moisturised my lips before hand and apply it on top throughout the day!

  7. I've always wanted to try a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick, I see so many bloggers and youtubers mentioning them and I feel like I'm majorly missing out. Velvet Teddy is one of my all time favourite lip products though! xx

  8. I really feel like I should give Bitch Perfect another go as I tried it in the store once and I didn't like it, but everyone else seems to swear by it. I do adore Velvet Teddy though!
