“Milk tea” lipsticks are among the prettiest MLBB (my lips but better) shades we’ve laid our eyes on, which is why they are easily some of our favourite go-to lipsticks.
Lately, it seems like RED netizens have also become obsessed with these flattering milky colours. The trend seems to be lipsticks that make their lips shiny and bouncy, and RED users have coined the term “milk tea jelly” that perfectly describes them!
These cinnamon milk tea colours are super flattering to your complexion as they won’t make your skin or teeth appear overly yellow, while making your pout look super soft and gentle.
You’ll also love how most of these “milk tea jelly” lipsticks comprise ultra-moisturising formulas. That way, your lips will feel as soft as they look.
So, we’ve gone ahead and compiled a variety of milk tea jelly lipsticks so that you, too, can add some of these pretty lipsticks to your vanity.
1. MAC Cosmetics Lustreglass Lipstick in shade Posh Pit
A warm-toned medium brown lippie, this shade will give you the perfect MLBB milk tea lips.
You can expect a sheer, jelly-like finish on the first swipe thanks to the formulation of raspberry seed oil and organic extra-virgin olive oil.
It retails for S$33.
2. Dior Addict Stellar Shine in shade 623 Hypnotique
Hypnotique is aptly named as we are downright hypnotised by how beautiful this milk tea shade is.
Its formula is ultra-caring on the lips as it uses aloe vera for 24-hour hydration, long-lasting comfort, and unparalleled shine.
It retails for S$47.
3. Pinkmore Moisturising Lipstick in shade 158
C-Beauty brand Pinkmore’s moisturising lipstick will add a luscious shine to your pout.
We’re quite obsessed with this particular shade, especially its cinnamon-brown tones.
It retails for ¥58 (~S$11.97).
4. ColourPop Let's Jet Glowing Lip in shade Highland Ave
Described as a warm berry colour, this shade still has those rich brown tones needed to give you a milk tea jelly pout.
It has a feel-good formula loaded with nourishing argan, cocoa, superfruit, shea butter, and vegan collagen.
It retails for US$8 (~S$11.04).
5. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine in shade 122 Burnt Zellige
Burnt Zellige is a light copper brown with warm undertones that is perfect for those who love lighter milk tea shades.
Our favourite thing about this lipstick is the faint pearlescent shimmers that will look amazing when the light hits it just right.
It retails for S$56.
6. Chanel Rouge Coco Baume in shade 914 Natural Charm
We’ve covered the Rouge Coco Baume line before, and we’re still crazily obsessed still the milky brown Natural Charm shade.
What’s interesting is that this line of lippies isn’t lipsticks, but tinted lip balms that still give you lipstick-like intensity.
It retails for S$53.
7. Too Faced Heart Core Lipstick in shade Sweet Tea
Aptly named Sweet Tea, this shade has pink and brown tones, which reminds us a lot of rose milk tea.
This is another unique product as it is a lipstick and lip balm hybrid that gives juicy shine and buildable colour all at once.
It retails for S$34.
