My lips but better

Have you heard of the term, "My lips but better?"  It's a term used to describe lipstick or lipgloss that enhances your lip color but isn't too drastic or bold.

One of my favorite lip products of all time is the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain.  They feel like moisturizing balm yet leave the lips with a nice stain.  You can talk, eat, kiss, whatever, and the color stays on.  The balm wears off after awhile, but you can put any lip balm over the stain and it looks great and lasts all day.  I have the colors Sweetheart and Smitten (bright pink and bright fuchsia), and even though I love them, Peter hates them.  He hates when I wear anything "too bold" on my lips.

So when I was in Rite Aid, I randomly picked up the color, "Honey."  And when I went to put it on I just cracked up laughing because it looks exactly like my lips.  The color is almost completely the same as my natural lip color, it's just slightly darker.

To illustrate - my natural lips on the left, "Honey" on the right.

No makeup again...

Up close and personal...
I have weird discoloration under my bottom lip that makes it look like I overdrew my lips, but I didn't!

It's no Dior Addict Lip Glow, but it has Peter's stamp of approval, and I like it a lot.  What do you think?

What's your favorite "My lips but better" product these days?
