Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share a video that was requested by a commenter in my What's In My Purse? video. I mentioned a few of my necessary MLBB lipsticks in it, which you all in the beauty community know means "My Lips But Better". MLBBs are my favorite type of lipstick and I try to keep one (or five) on me at all times so I thought it would be life-improving for all of you to see a breakdown of my all time top MLBB obsessions!

The requirements I look for in MLBBs are being a wearable medium pink, hydration, and that they fill the niche of "goes with everything" in my makeup wardrobe. It's the lipstick that doesn't require too much thinking which is so necessary for those who need a quick, reliable lipstick buddy for work or school. I'm mostly a natural makeup gal but that doesn't mean I don't have a respectable variety of MLBB iterations on hand for the subtle differences of life's callings. ;)
I'll start off with NYX, one of my first makeup brand loves. I'm concerned this particular shade may be discontinued but I am still a loyal fan of their Black Label lipsticks which are a step up in quality from their popular Round Lipstick line. Bling is a cooler, barely plummy-pink which looks especially nice in the Winter when my skin is a touch lighter.
Urban Decay Fiend is from their new Revolution line of creamy, pigmented lipsticks which I recently reviewed. On me, this is another cooler rose pink but it doesn't have any purple undertones. It's one of my more opaque MLBBs as well and has a bit of longer lasting power than the others. I can see this shade looking great on every skintone.
Benefit Nice 'n Teasy has been my go-to purse lipstick as of late and it's definitely because it's one of the most balmy lipsticks I own. There's no need to carry a separate lip balm in my purse since this one makes my lips feel so hydrated. The color itself is on the warmer side with a slight brown base so it will look especially wonderful on those with yellow-based undertones.
Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick in Rose of Attraction is my favorite drugstore MLBB and gives a great brightening effect to the face. As the name implies, this one is a rosy raspberry shade that is pigmented enough to give a pop of color but has a sheerness to it that makes it look quite natural. LOVE it!
Finally, Spice Spice Baby from Too Faced is hands-down my #1 MLBB because the color is literally closest to my natural lip color and truly fulfills everything I look for in an MLBB. The formula is plush and creamy, the look is glossy and hydrating, and the overall effect is natural yet pulled-together. Too Faced, you hit the ball out of the park with this one!
I hope this was helpful for those of you looking for a new MLBB or wanting a few suggestions of where to start finding the MLBB that works best for you. If you didn't watch the video, make sure you check it out since sometimes makeup in motion is more telling than a still photo! Thanks so much for reading!
