When it comes to finding the perfect everyday shade, many ladies want a colour that is as close to their natural lip colour. That is where the “my lips but better” also known as MLBB lipsticks are the ideal choice for many ladies. Whether it’s paired with a smokey eye or a simple winged eyeliner makeup, these lipsticks are sure to match most looks.

Understanding that lips come in all sorts of colours, this is why we have compiled a list of the 6 best MLBB lipsticks you can purchase in Singapore!

Maybelline’s matte formula offers a velvety-smooth finish which allows you to have the comfort of a cream lipstick. Their Color Sensational Intimattes Powder Matte in Toasted Brown is perfect if you’re a fan of nude lipsticks.

Tip: This neutral matte brown shade works perfectly for ladies with a medium to tan complexion. We suggest using a burnt orange eyeshadow on the crease with a copper shimmer on the lids, for a daytime smokey eye look.

2. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, Athens

If you’re one who prefers peachy shades, then NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Athens is one of the best affordable options out there in the market. This cult favourite product boasts a whipped cream consistency which does not emphasize lines and cracks, making it ideal for those who can’t wear liquid lipsticks.

Tip: Suitable for fair to medium complexions, we suggest you pair this look with purple eyeshadows. Swipe a mauve shade all over your lids and use a darker wine shade to deepen your crease.

3. MAC, Paramount

For those of you who aren’t a fan of matte lipsticks, go for satin finishes which offer creamy pay- off while creating a subtle sheen on your lips. MAC’s satin lipstick in Paramount is a deep chocolate brown which has a reddish undertone.

Tip: For all you dark-skinned beauties, this will be you new go-to MLBB shade. As the colour is quite bold, we suggest pairing this with a gold shimmer in the inner corner of your eye and a simple winged eyeliner.

Available on: Sephora & others

4. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, Walkyrie

Warm rich pinks are the best choice for those who are afraid to venture into darker nudes. NARS’ Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are great for those who want a comfortable and long-lasting formula. Their shade, Walkyrie, works great for different undertones and would be an ideal MLBB lipstick.

Tip: Darker rich pinks are the best choice for those who have fair to tan skin tone. For a fun monochrome look, brush a matte coral all over the lids and apply a pink glittery shade on your inner corners and undereye. Top the look off with winged eyeliner or false eyelashes.

5. Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick, Up 2 No Good

For a light peach shade, Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Up 2 No Good would make a fantastic addition to your collection. As the brand thrives on inclusivity, their line of lipsticks is here to make every woman feel beautiful in her own skin.

Tip: We understand that finding a MLBB lipstick for pale skin can be difficult. With Up 2 No Good, you can now get a true peach colour that doesn’t look too orange on your skin tone. As this colour is subtle, we recommend pairing this with a cool-toned brown smokey eye.

As one of the most popular brands in K-beauty, Etude House offers affordable makeup without compromising on the quality. Their Better Lips-Talk in the shade, Dancing China, promises a highly pigmented MLBB colour.

Tip: This muted apricot shade is great for fair to medium complexions. As the colour is versatile, you can truly choose to rock any eyeshadow look with it. To get that Korean look, apply a light shimmery eyeshadow on your lower lash line to mimic an “aegyo sal”.
