5 My Lips But Better Lipsticks

Reader Charmaine wanted to see five MLBB lipsticks, and here are five that might work for you. “My Lips But Better” are lipsticks that accentuate, perfect, or otherwise better your natural lip color, which means that a lot of it hinges on what your natural lip color is. Instead of choosing only shades that were my MLBB shades, I tried to pick a variety of colors that could give that kind of look.

What are your favorite MLBB shades?

5 Fun Duochromes

Reader Sarah wanted to see five duochromes, and I thought I’d try to get some variety in type of product. A product with a duochrome finish or color will look like one color when you look at it straight on, and then when you angle it, it can look like an entirely different color (or nearly so). MAC has several duochrome eyeshadows and pigments (more than most other brands that I’m aware of)–far more than the two here on the list.

What’s your favorite duochrome beauty product?
