Ahhh the MLBB experience.
What’s MLBB you might ask? Why that would be the my lips but better lipstick or gloss you might own. The one you reach for daily because it enhances your natural lip color but doesn’t overpower it. The one that makes you look like you have nothing at all on but still looks sexy and pouty none the less.
I think lip junkies would agree that the my lips but better experience rarely comes around but when it does, it’s embraced to the max and in some cases you’ll find yourself stockpiling the product you use to create that perfect, bare, nude lip look.
I’ve only had one MLBB experience myself and that would be with Urban Decay Naked Lipstick. I can’t say I have a ton of glosses or lipsticks in my stash that achieve this incredible look but I surely wish I did and I’m always hunting around to see if I can find another product that will achieve the result.
I am happy to say that Urban Decay Lipstick in Indecent has made it’s way into my stash and it’s almost as lovely as Naked in some ways….
Oh baby Bobbi Brown Black Velvet popped into my mail box today and I’m every so happy. Quite an exciting release for Bobbi with all sorts of deliciously dark, rich colors to choose from for Fall.
Wanna a peek?
Fond fans of Chanel Inimitable Mascara Multi-Dimensional should be excited at the latest mascara offering from the brand entitled Inimitable Intense Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel Sophistique.
The new formula builds on the success of the old giving lashes greater volume, length, and curl.
A few years ago I purchased Laura Mercier Brightening Powder and hated it. Honestly, this stuff was pointless to me. I’m not sure what I was expecting but I ended up not liking it at all.
Flash forward a year or so later and it started to become my right hand lady to use in conjunction with my concealer. Go further forward and Bobbi Brown’s Concealer Palette had a similar white powder which became a fast friend of mine.
And finally present day you’ll find me toting around Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder, it’s my HG (holy grail).
Moral of the story? I’ve gotten older and appreciate brightening powders in a major way. They not only set concealer but they really do brighten up the eye area and create a more flawless finish under my eyes. Granted, in my opinion, if you’re younger you might not experience the same results but if you’re in your late 20′s, 30′s or older, a brightening powder is essential to have in your beauty arsenal in my opinion.
Most recently Sofina Aube Couture Designing Highlight crossed my path. I’m a fond fan of Japanese brand, Aube, so I was all about trying out their brightening powder….
