Shy Shine (asian exclusive) is a favourite of mine…its shade is close to Bare slimshine but pinker :)))

non-exclusive would have to be Bare slimshine & Way to Love from the Rose Romance collection (i’m in NC35 so Way to Love looked surprisingly nude on my lips, LOL! :D)

I like Lightly Ripe… Maybe too colorful to be considered MLBB but my lips are pretty pigmented to begin with & this gives them that “boost”.

Me to!!!!! I luv lightly ripe lipstick I could wear it every day with cherry blossom lipglass on top =0) Its almost completly gone thou =0( does anyone recommend anything on their permanent the similar??

agreed. my lips are pretty pigmented too, and i was never really into wearing lipstick before i tried lightly ripe. it’s such a perfect MLBB color. i’m kicking myself for not buying backups. i’ve been trying to hunt it down at the local CCOs, but i haven’t had any luck. ๐Ÿ™

I don’t feel comfortable wearing an opaque pink looking like my lips: I’m not a fan of opaque make up. Even if the tones are close to mine.

Estรฉe Lauder Pure Color Crystal in Plum Fizz is my fav MLBB. It’s very dark seen like that in the tube but it’s a transparent sheer color. Neither too pink, neither too orange, neither too bright. It’s simply a transparent muted deep red. Basically it’s my lip color enhanced and deeper with a soft satin transparent finish. I don’t need to apply much of that Plum Fizz lipstick: less is more with that product. I adore its transparency and the natural yet sophisticated touch it gives to my face.

Most wanted Slimshine. most of the time people barely tell i have it on. My lips are really pink.

My lips are pigmented rather bad:(. So I prefer to wear neutral coral/pinkish red tones. Givenchy Rouge Interdit ‘Precious Rose’ is my favourite lipstick.

My lips are very pigmented naturally, so definitely no traditional ‘nude’ shades for me. Current MLBB favourite is L’Oreal Color Riche gelee in Shiny Grapefruit

Dior Addict l/s in Beige Dessous, a beautiful beige with a pink undertone and a satin finish. And it really keeps my lips smooth all day long.

Creme d’mude from Mac ๐Ÿ™‚ an opaque beige/white that goes amazing on my lips, my favourite colour ever ๐Ÿ™‚ goes very well with tanned skin ๐Ÿ˜€

I like something to tone my pigmented lips down a bit, since I’m pale (NW10).

LM Pink Champagne creme l/s, MAC VG V l/s, or MAC TwigTwig LE l/s.

Sweetie seems to be same shade as my lips, I so wanted it to work!

this might sound weird, but mine are Purple Rite, 3d and High Tea from mac–they all work, somehow.

Mid tone red colors, such as, MAC “o” and polished up. Also browns, such as, MAC Oh Baby, Beaux and Get Rich Quick. Reds and Browns really make me glow and come alive w/o being ott.
