My Lips But Better or commonly referred to as MLBB in the beauty community is a term coined for a shade of lipstick or gloss that’s comparable to that of your natural lip color only enhanced. A shade that gives your pout that perfect natural color that looks like your real lip color only way better.
MLBB shades are a rarity in my opinion. They aren’t something you run across daily and you may have to go through dozens of lipsticks and glosses to run across a single shade of MLBB. I’ve tried plenty of shades of lipstick and tons of gloss and can only give the coveted MLBB title to a very, very few shades in my stash.
If anyone deserves the title of the perfect shade of MLBB it would have to go to Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipstick. I recently told you the tale of Lipstick Queen Jean Queen Lipgloss, now let me tell you one about the lipstick.
I’m tad nutty, we’ve established that. So it isn’t any great surprise I start speaking to myself like a pirate whenever I head to the Clarins counter and see Joli Rouge Lipsticks.
I dunno, it just sounds so pirate-y! Me ships name be the Joli Rouge, aye! She’s a little beauty! Wait, I sound like Steve Irwin now.
Better stick to lipsticks.
Bobbi, girl, I tried to recreate that killer lip look you had going on in the Rose Gold promo image but I couldn’t do it! It says the model is wearing Pink Peony Rich Lip Color topped with Pink Cocoa Rich Color Gloss but I tried the combo and I don’t get that bronze-y rose that the model has going on. Why you do this to me? I’m mad with envy my lips don’t look as amazing as your models.
Anyone try the combo?
Sadly, I was unable to successfully recreate the look but here’s a look at the Bobbi Brown Rose Gold Rich Color Lipsticks.
Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Lipstick gets my vote for cute. Being a collector of Japanese and other Asian cosmetics for many years definitely influenced my taste in makeup. I love packaging that’s sweet and cute. Sadly, we don’t get a ton of cute makeup products in the US, not nearly as much as you’d be able to purchase if you lived in Korea or Japan but occasionally the odd piece pops up and in turn many of us get rather excited about it.
In the case of these new lipsticks from Physicians Formula I think they most definitely fit into the realms of cute and I immediately needed to own them. Heck, the formula could have been downright terrible but the packaging was so amazing I was easily blinded.
But did the quality of the lipstick live up to all that foo-foo packaging?
Take a look!
Now might be a good time to set aside some cash for ALL of the new Clinique Almost Lipsticks. Yes, ALL.
At $15 each they are an absolute essential and affordable haul. You NEED these.
