If you know anything about us, then you know we love ourselves a versatile beauty product. One of our favorites? A classic MLBB. Whether you play it up or dress it down, a foolproof “my lips but better” shade will give you tons of room to work with, no matter what kind of look you want to pull off.

But, apparently, finding the right MLBB shade can get pretty tricky when you’ve got gorgeous morena skin. Nudes can run a little pale or ashy, undertones can make or break how they appear, even the consistency, like how opaque or sheer it applies, can make a huge difference. Whatever the case, we’re here to help. Below, we’ve rounded together 5 MLBB lipstick shades (all local!) that we think strikes a perfect balance with your natural lip hue. Scroll for swatches!
