The Perfect ‘My Lips But Better’ (MLBB) Lipsticks

For those unfamiliar with the concept of an MLBB (My Lips But Better) Lipstick, it is all about finding a lipstick shade that closely matches your natural lip color, while also adding some depth and intensity to perk up your overall complexion. Think rosy nudes, peachy beiges, and light dusty mauves. The perfect no-makeup-makeup lippie is essential in a beauty lover’s collection; an everyday, barely-there staple that makes people think ‘is she or isn’t she?’. Here are 5 of our favorite MLBB lip products that you just won’t be able to put down. 

Bourjois, Rouge Velvet Lipstick in Nohalicious
This gorgeous matte lipstick in the shade Nohalicious (bonus points if your name is Noha!) can be described as a warm brown with rosy undertones and provides a beautiful opaque wash of color to the lips. The teardrop bullet shape makes for more precise application that is long-wearing and wonderfully natural-looking. 

Luna, City Girl Semi-Matte Lipstick in C27
For a more comfort-matte, satin finish, the Luna City Girl Lipstick in C27 keeps your lips smooth but never dry. This perfect nude pink is infused with Vitamin A and E to nourish and hydrate, while also delivering on long-lasting pigment for your pout.
