I’ve always been more of a MLBB (my lips but better) lipstick kind of gal so, not surprisingly, my collection of mid-tone brownish-pink and berry lipsticks is much larger compared to the pinks and reds I own.

I also threw in a few really dark, true brown and violet lipsticks that I acquired when I was in more of an experimental and adventurous frame of mind. I’ve been purging my stash so I’m going to pass those lipsticks onto a friend because they really don’t suit me and dark colors really look great on her.

As always, I like to stick with inexpensive lipsticks. They’re a great way to try an assortment of colors without spending a lot of money. I try to take advantage of BOGO sales, coupons, and store rewards/points whenever possible, so although I have a lot of lipsticks I didn’t pay much (or anything) out of pocket for them. If I decide I don’t like a color, I don’t feel as bad about giving away or returning a cheap lipstick as I do with a pricier lipstick. Mid-high end lipsticks are too much of a commitment/investment for me.

I have a bunch of favorites in this batch: NYC Lilac Dream, NYC Berry Rich, NYC Plum Rum, Nicka K Mauve, Nicka K Cameo, Palladio Brownie, and lastly Revlon Fig Jam is on its way to becoming a fave too. All of these items have a creme (non-shimmer) finish.

  1. Ahh that CoverGirl TruShine lipstick in Blushberry looks like it could be the PERFECT MLBB for me! Too bad that it’s been discontinued for such a long time now. I searched for it a year ago when I saw an online swatch and I haven’t been able to find it anywhere.

    • The color’s the only reason I’m still hanging onto Blushberry. I always thought the TruShines had a funny scent. Not a rancid smell but a “fragrance-free” fragrance, if that makes any sense. I’m hoping that I’ll find an inexpensive color dupe for it one day.
