By far, our favorite beauty trend of 2017 would have to be the MLBB (that stands for My Lips But Better, in case you’re new here). We don’t even remember how we used to review soft, skin-toned lipsticks without mentioning that ubiquitous acronym. Fact is, our lives have been so much easier—and our selfies so much nicer—with the rise of the neutral.
Earlier this year, we declared non-statement lips to be the new normal—and we’re sticking to our guns, girls. From peachy nudes to fleshy pinks, here are 10 MLBBs on our must-have list.
1. Maybelline Powder Matte in Touch of Nude, P299
This warm nude has a hint of peach and a powdery finish. Shop it here.
2. L’Oréal Paris Infallible 10HR Lipstick in Tender Berry, P500
This soft, dusky mauve is on the cool side. It sets demi-matte—but if you want it less shiny, just blot! Shop it here.
3. NYX Lip Lingerie in Exotic, P490
A blend of nude and brick, this liquid lipstick is pretty much bulletproof. Shop it here.
4. Skin Genie Lip and Cheek Stain Alive! in Flirt, P80
This sheer candy pink makes your face come alive. Shop it here.
5. Happy Skin Liquid Matte Lippie in Warm Embrace, P699
For work-appropriate glam, look no further than this deep golden-peach. Shop it here.
6. Pink Sugar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Gossip Girl, P349
Worth it for the plush formula alone, this fleshy pink was made for flirtation. Shop it here.
7. W7 Mega Matte Lips in Two Bob, P349
This barely-there beige creates instant polish. Shop it here.
8. DETAIL Simply Matte in Lovely, P159
This rich rose-beige gives you cool-girl cred. Shop it here.
9. Eden’s Paradise Honestly Matte Liquid Rouge in Sunday Chill, P499
Just like the name suggests, this peachy nude is 100% weekend-worthy. Shop it here.
10. Everyday Love+ Nude Lips in #5, P199
This pale taupe is the ultimate millennial nude. Shop it here.
