'My Lips But Better' lipsticks...

I used to wonder what the point of wearing lipstick similar to your natural lip colour was, but over time I have acquired a few of these MLBB shades! They're perfect for when you don't have time to think about which lipstick to wear or just to give a bit of extra colour to your lips.

Here are my picks...

L-R
Maybelline Mineral Lipstick in Healthy Rose
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Demure
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Birthday Suit
Boe Beauty lipstick in Birthday suit
Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie

Maybelline Healthy Rose 
According to MUA, this is discontinued! Such a shame really, these lipsticks feel like butter (even better!) when you put apply them and have no smell/taste. This one is a regular in my handbag because it adds a hint of healthy pink to your lips and complements most makeup styles. The lasting power isn't bad either! If you see one on Ebay, I'd highly recommend it.

Revlon Demure
A very creamy and moisturising lipstick with a slight peachy tone. This one also has no smell/taste and the packaging makes it look fancy. I'm a huge fan of Revlon lipsticks and this doesn't disappoint!

Rimmel Birthday Suit
I've mentioned this one before and it's a great caramel toned lipstick. It has a vanilla scent to it and can be a bit dry on the lips as it's supposed to be a longer lasting formula. I'd say it lasts around 4 hours. This one is slightly frosted (you can't really tell from the swatches) which I don't mind.

Boe Beauty Birthday Suit
I wonder where they got the name? Once you get over the flimsy packaging, the lipstick itself is pretty decent. I bought this one as a cheaper alternative to the Rimmel version of Birthday Suit. This is a nude toned  peach colour with no frost. It has a very mild scent that reminds me of plastic...in a good way? But it's not noticeable on the lips. This one is very smooth and creamy, great value for a $2 lipstick.

Revlon Berry Smoothie
This one featured on my pink lipsticks post, but I simply adore this shade so I threw it in again! A lovely berry pink that can be built up to be brighter. 

If you asked me to pick a favourite, I don't think I could! Do you own any of these shades?
