"My Lips But Better" Lipsticks: Urban Decay, Benefit, Loreal, Too Faced & MAC

After reading Jen From Head to Toe's MLBB (My Lips But Better) Lipsticks post (here), I am inspired to share my own MLBB. I hope this post will be particular useful to my UK readers, as Jen is in America, so not all products she recommends are available in the UK.

Jen's Recommendation:

I am adding two to the list:

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Fiend

This is Urban Decay's new range of lipstick, hydrating & comfortable to wear. It has an opaque finish so a bit longer lasting & give a better coverage to the lips. It has a pinker tone.

Benefit Hydra-Smooth Lip Colour in Nice 'n Teasy

This is a new range of lipsticks to Benefit. The packaging is so beautiful! The design of the tube is not a traditional tube, it looks like a Greek architectural column, really "stand out" amongst others. The texture of this lipstick is more balmy, but it still gives a good colour payoff. The colour is slight brown tone to it.

Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in Spice Spice Baby

This is probably my favourite of the five. It has the perfect balance of pink & brown tone, the perfect balance of balminess (is it a word?) & lipsticky (again, does this world exist?) colour payoff. I cannot say a bad thing about it. Well.. perhaps the only bad thing is that this range is only available online, I cannot swatch the colours before I buy.

Loreal Colour Riche Collection Privee in Rosewood Beige by Julianne Moore (limited edition)

I have to throw in a drugstore alternative. At £8.19, it is almost half priced of all the others. The catch is this is a limited collection, if you want it, get it now before it's too late!! I have chosen Julianne as it is the closest to my natural lip colour. There are altogether 6 shades in the collection to choose from.

MAC Lustre in Patisserie

Well well well! How can we not include a MAC lipstick in a lipstick post?! MAC Patisserie is a classic.  It is nude, natural, comfortable to wear, a perfect day to day lipstick!

I hope this post is helpful if you are looking for a MLBB lipstick! Some may say they all look the same, but as a beauty addict, I would argue that they are all different in shades & textures. Therefore, it is totally justifiable for me to have all of these in my handbag at one point!

What is your favourite MLBB?

Tuesday means... Steak night at Wetherspoon!

"Are you serious?" I know what you are thinking. Wetherspoon pubs have revamped their menu and food quality, but the price has stayed low.

Budget Buy: MUA nail polish in Natural Days

When I was in Superdrug to buy the Tiffany colours (NYC nail polishes  - check out my blog post here ), as the offer was 3 for 2 across all nail polishes, I picked up a MUA polish as my freebie. I saw this pastel baby pink colour in Natural Days. The colour looks really cute in the bottle.

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
