If there’s a makeup trend that I’m pretty sure will go on forever, that’ll be the MLBB (My Lips But Better) lipstick shades. I think it’ll be a forever trend because it matches almost all types of makeup – colourful, smokey, natural. It also suits almost all types of skin tones. And yup, it suits almost every woman.
Recently, Glamourbox together with OFRA Cosmetics created a nude matte lippie called Manila. It’s formulated to suit Filipinas. I have fair skin and so far, it also suits me. The packaging, like other long-lasting lipsticks, is in a transparent bottle with a doe applicator. It has a creamy consistency with a vanilla, caramel scent. Guys, that OFRA scent always gets me! Promise. It’s like you’re applying dessert on your lips. It’s also super pigmented. One swipe is enough to coat your lips. It doesn’t dry out your lips unlike other matte lipsticks. But if you really have the driest lips ever, you can apply lip balm first, let it set for a few minutes then finally apply Manila. What I really like about this lipstick is that it stays almost all day sans lip primer. It stays on even after two full meals, two cups of coffee and few kissie smacks.
Lippie Tip: You can actually mix and match this nude lipstick with other colors. I tried mixing Manila with other OFRA lipsticks. I used Manila as base then topped it off with Laguna Beach, Mocha and Aries. I love how it can instantly glam up your look. Its flexible shade will definitely make your simple, casual look or smokey, sultry makeup stand out.
