These lipsticks are the easy ones, the ones which don’t require a lot of thoughts before wearing them. They are the ones which can go unnoticed, yet they beautifully complete a full face of makeup while enhancing the complexion.

From the bottom left to the top right – from the close-up shot- : Pixi Mattelustre in the shade Bitten Rose,  Chanel Rouge Coco in the shade 434 Mademoiselle, Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm 001 Pink, Mac Matte in the shade Mehr, Chanel Rouge Allure in the shade 91 Séduisante. 

For longevity

I reach for Mac Mehr or Chanel Séduisante as I know I can spend the entire day wearing them and, more importantly, not retouching them and my lips will still look freshly coated in the evening. Pixi Bitten Rose and Chanel Mademoiselle aren’t bad either, though I’m afraid they won’t completely resist meals and drinks.

For comfort 

They all are pretty comfortable, none of them suck up my lips, even Mac Mehr – a matte finish- doen’t dry them out. However, if I had to choose one – or two- I would advise Dior Addict Lip Glow – which, due to the fact that it adds some colour to the lips, I personally see as a lipstick- or Chanel Mademoiselle – a light brown with, nonetheless, some pink and peach undertones in it-

For the easiest applications 

Again and because they are sheerer, I would advise Dior Addict Lip Glow and Chanel Mademoiselle. Yet, when it comes to a quick opaque finish, I cannot recommend Chanel Séduisante – a peach with a hint of pink in it-  enough. Contrariwise, I spend a little bit more time applying Mac Mehr and Pixi Bitten Rose.

For a radiant skin 

As I said earlier, they all do a pretty good job when it comes to enhancing my complexion. Nonetheless, some of them, Mac Mehr for instancerequire something on the cheeks. The sames goes for Chanel Mademoiselle. On the contrary, Chanel Séduisante and more particularly Pixi Bitten Rose – the classic old pink-  seem to flawlessly match my skintone.

For beautiful lips

When it comes to giving a beautiful texture to the lips and make them more pulpy and healthy, some lipsticks are better than others. If Chanel Mademoiselle and Dior Addict Lip Glow replump my lips this is oddly Mac Mehr – the matte finish lipstick and a deep old pink shade spiced up with some brown tones- which really defines them and makes them pop!

  • Lipstick posts are my favorite posts! 🙂

    • Me too! Just because lipstick are very easy to change and, I don’t know why, but I also really like writing about them.

  • I love these kind of MLBB shades, they are the perfect pick me up and you can combine them to any eye makeup, which means you get a lot of use out of them.

    • I agree, that is why all of these lipsticks are either neutral or very lightly coloured, I believe this is the kind of shades we all gravitate towards on our everyday life!

  • My favorite lipsticks are bold ones, but I’ll always choose this type of MLBB shades over nudes! Lately I’ve been loving the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in Rebellious Rose.

    • I do love a bold lip, but I have to admit that, on a daily basis, I am more likely to choose a neutral over a bold! A MLBB shade is as close as I can get to nudes as nudes, unfortunately, don’t suit me! I will definitely check this Estée Lauder one then!

  • I mostly reach for bold lips since Autumn, and I haven’t worn many pinks and nudes lately. Bold lips are perfect when you don’t have time for full face makeup but you still want to look good, which in my case every morning during the week 🙂 Love your lipstick collection, they are perfect for everyday wear.

    • I agree! Bold lips do not require a lot of makeup, in fact, if I choose to wear a bold lip, I would rather keep the cheeks and eyes very simple! Thank you 🙂

  • Excellent shades! Love it!

  • I love lipsticks, I really do, so this post has instantly made me happy! You can never go wrong with a Chanel lipstick, they are always so sophisticated.

    MAC lipsticks are great as they are very long lasting, a great range of colours.

    NARS offer some fantastic choices and have impressed with their deeper toned colours.

    A lovely read 🙂
