The beauty of a trusty MLBB lippie is you can swipe it on and look effortlessly put together in a snap. To claim that it’s an essential is an understatement. We’d even go as far as to say it’s the most important lip product you can own!

Of course, as with anything in makeup, the concept of MLBBs is constantly shifting. Where it used to just mean nude hues, it now also covers whatever the wearer deems suitable for everyday.

So whether you feel most yourself in a bombshell red or a barely there brown, you do you, girl. Here are just 8 of our top picks for “nude” lips!

8 EVERYDAY LIPPIES FOR EVERY NUDE MOOD


1. Detail Lippie Liner in Ethan, P99 Its classic wood-barrel format and velvety-smooth formulation makes this liner super easy to work with. The shade we picked out, Ethan, is a true nude that’ll give you a wash of universally flattering color.
