I wouldn’t, myself, say that Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balmstain in “Crush” (a deep, plum and I have rosy lips) is a MLBB color, but I’ve been asked so many times if that is my natural lip color when wearing it so it must look natural on me!

Yes Dolce Vita by Nars is definitely a good one across the board. No wonder it’s been a big cult seller of theirs for along time.

I know I have a few in my collection, but the only one that comes to mind without rummaging through drawers is Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color in Confidence.

Same here! Seconding the too faced la creme lipstick in spice spice baby. I never thought I’d find an mlbb color but I did! It’s not only the perfect color, it’s rich and creamy and smells good!

Before, it was either Nyx SMLC in Stockholm or Nyx Xtreme Lip Cream in Buttery Nude but those were either too drying or too gloopy. Then I found Wet N Wild Megalast in 912 C! Creamy-matte, long-staying, perfect MLBB-shade and affordable. Packaging sucks though, but I haven’t found any other shades from other brands that can match it’s performance. 🙂

the closest I’ve got to one is MAC Hug Me, it isn’t my actual lip colour, but it sort of looks right for my skin tone to the degree that I often forget I’m wearing it when I catch sight of myself in mirrors and windows. I’ve got to find a true MLBL.

I like my lips to look a little deeper and redder/more pigmented than they really are. When I want a my lips but better look, I’d just put on a VERY sheer tinted lip balm, my favorites being Epically Epic’s tinted lip balms and Maybelline Baby Lips. When I want a more full-on product I’d go for The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain in Rose Pink and Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie. I’m thinking of trying Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum next, since Berry Smoothie, while nice, still pulls a bit pink on me.

mac super kissable lip color (LE), mac can’t get enough, UD liar,
honestly i have a hard time believing people when they say here that they can’t find a MLBB nude.

i am not a nude lip person, (although i should be since i have tiny lips), so 3 mlbb suffices for me, (i have backups for two of them, super and can’t get enough). and i can transform a couple of other lip colors into a nude lip by using a lip liner.

Nars Dolce Vita, Shiseido Carnelian, Armani 501 and Urban Decay Rush are all variations of my lip color, some a little lighter some a little darker.

Paul & Joe sheer lipstick in Joie de Vivre. It’s such a pretty shade, warms up your lips and makes them rosy. And it comes in the cutest paper cases!!
