In a world of lip paints, liquid lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip crayons, I’m still a lipstick girl and always will be. There’s something about a nice tube of lipstick that just makes me feel good! I always have several MLBB (my lips but better) lipsticks in my purse. These are my go-to faves and they never fail to look good and go with anything.
All of these lipsticks are very close to my natural lip color, and all of them give a shiny finish (except one) and are fairly sheer. I like my lipsticks to be moisturizing and feel good on the lips, and all of these fit the bill.
Lipstick Queen Jean Queen – the creator of Lipstick Queen designed this shade to be the perfect color to pair with jeans. This color offsets the blue and brightens up the whole face. This lipstick is very moisturizing and soft.
Maybelline Colorsensational The Mattes in Touch of Spice – this color is the one matte that I have here, but I love the formula of these matte lipsticks. They aren’t drying on my lips, and they come in such pretty colors. This color leans a bit brown, but it is still very neutral.
Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie in Get Ready – this shade is a creamy cool rosy pink that is pigmented and soft. It is very similar to Jean Queen.
NARS Dolce Vita – this color matches my lips EXACTLY. I love this shade. This color is a dusty rose pink, and is very sheer. It is so moisturizing, and feels like a lip balm.
Maybelline Color Whisper in Made It Mauve – this is a mauve pink gel lipstick that is so lightweight and sheer on the lips, almost like a tinted balm.
Essence Beauty Lipstick in Natural Beauty – this berry pink is very smooth and soft. I love this very inexpensive brand for this line of lipsticks. They are really nice and moisturizing.
MAC Syrup – this lipstick has a bit of purple to it, and has a lustre finish. I have repurchased this lipstick many times, and it is a staple in my bag.
Rimmel Airy Fairy – this shade is the lightest nude pink of the bunch, but is still really natural.
