Shiny, water-glazed lips have been all the rage ever since the resurgence of the Y2K trend, and we just can’t get enough of them.

If you’re bored of the conventional pink or MLBB shades, however, why not switch things up with a “mocha milk tea jelly” lippie?

What is the “milk tea jelly” trend all about?

Milk tea jelly lipsticks come in flattering nudes and brown tones that are similar to the colour of a cup of milk tea you may order at a bubble tea shop. Chinese netizens breathed life into the trend, and pretty soon, we were seeing glossy pouts in cinnamon-brown and mauve-nude shades all over our feed.

The great thing about “milk tea” colours is that they are flattering on multiple skin tones, and won’t make your teeth appear as yellow compared to more striking shades like red or fuchsia. Their jelly-like texture also adds a youthful vibe to any look.

A “mocha jelly milk tea” lippie you’ve gotta try

Much like milk tea, we can always count on a good cup of coffee to give us an energy boost, but seeing the perfect mocha lip colour really perks us up in a different kind of way. This is how we feel about MAC’s Lustreglass Sheer-Shine Lipstick in the stunning shade #567 “Like I Was Saying”.

The rosy-brown colour gives your lips a warm and cosy feel, and is wearable for almost any occasion. The slight shimmer in the lipstick also adds to its ultra-glossy effect.

As MAC’s Lustreglass Sheer-Shine Lipsticks have an incredibly moisturising formula as well, you don’t have to be afraid of unsightly dry lips. Their hyaluronic acid-infused products moisturise, nourish, and condition lips while leaving behind a radiant flash of sheer high-shine colour.

MAC Lustreglass Sheer-Shine Lipstick in “Like I Was Saying” retails for S$39.10 on Taobao.
