We’ve always been fans of Korean lip trends and their products! From the popular popsicle or ombré look to the natural tint finish, us Pinays have been sporting them for quite some time now. Well, we're here to introduce another K-beauty-approved trend: The soft "my-lips-but-better" look. What makes it different from the MLBB lewks you've tried in the past is that the Korean version works with powder matte lippies or glossy lipsticks. Completely foolproof and versatile, the soft MLBB lip doesn’t take much to achieve. Plus, it’s totally bagay with any outfit and season!
And so, we at Cosmo decided to round up only the best of the best lipsticks from our favorite Korean brands for our favorite ~lakas maka-fresh~ look! Scroll down to see the list.
