The best everyday lipsticks

YLBB: your lips but better: a term to describe lipsticks that are pretty much your lip color but like better than your natural lips. They're natural, neutral pinks and nudes. They're the colors you wear every day.

From the left:
Demure - Revlon | 14 - Rimmel by Kate | Airy Fairy - Rimmel | Centerfold - Buxom* | Viva Glam Gaga 2 - Mac* | Fairest Nude - L'oreal

Demure from Revlon is a really nice almost-coral color. It has just enough color to add something extra but still looks natural and fine for everyday class or work wear. Revlon makes amazing lipsticks. This one is  a satin finish but doesn't appear shimmery or frosty. 

14 from the Kate line for Rimmel is a darker nude. I tend to stay away from lighter nudes because I think they can make you look dead and sickly. Rimmel lipsticks are a bit more dry than the Revlon ones but they apply smoothly and add a nice color. 

Airy Fairy from Rimmel used to be really popular but I don't see it mentioned often. It is definitely a nude pink. This was my go to for forever and has a very subtle satin finish. 

Centerfold was a limited edition shade from Buxom but you may still find it in some stores or online or something. In the swatch it looks like a berry magenta shade but, on my lips its a dark pink nude. I've seen this look very different on different people. Buxom lipsticks are very hydrating and have a beautiful shine on the lips. Some of them are a bit sticky but nothing like a lipgloss. 

Viva Glam Gaga 2 was one of MAC's limited edition viva glam shades. The viva glam line is normally endorsed by a celeb and they proceeds go to fighting AIDS. I am not a Gaga fan but this lipstick is nice. Again it isn't sold anymore but it can still be found online some places. This is a true light nude. I rarely wear this on its own but its the perfect color to wear under a lightly pigmented gloss. 

Finally is Fairest Nude from L'Oreal. This is very similar to Airy Fairy but a bit darker. Its not quite as dark as 14 though. L'Oreal lipsticks are very basic; they're not too dry to too hydrating. They aren;t glossy or matte either. L'Oreal however is made by Lancome so the quality is normally good. This color is my favorite, go-to lipstick. 

What are some of you favorite YLBB lipsticks? Let me know
