“Rice milk tea” lip shade is that wholesome colour anyone can pull off

Rice milk tea is often seen as the healthier alternative to an indulgent cup of boba milk tea and as a lip shade, it’s just as wholesome as the beverage!

The muted, wearable shade is the perfect MLBB colour that pretty much anyone can pull off and that’s what makes us love it.

And if you’ve been meaning to jump onto the milk tea lip shade bandwagon and haven’t found something that you’re sure you’ll look good in then the rice milk tea shade is definitely it.

Cue the drum roll and welcome Christian Louboutin Beauty’s Rouge Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip in #342M Milky Light into your makeup stash.

We love how the shade reminds us of when the creamy white rice purée is mixed with the light brown hues of the tea to transform into a satisfying beige when you stir everything together.

We’re drooling just looking at the way this matte lippie dresses lips in a light beige shade that makes for a great nude lip look.

Beauty junkies might not be familiar with Christian Louboutin Beauty’s line of lipsticks since they aren’t easily accessible in Malaysia but they’re just as iconic as their heels.

This lippie in particular has a formula that is long-lasting and comfortable. It glides smoothly onto the lips and saturate them with colour in just one swipe.

Highly-pigmented, the lipstick also boasts a complex of natural oils and seed butters so your lips will always stay moisturised.

You can easily get a just-bitten lip look similar to the Korean gradient lip just by applying the lipstick from the centre of your lips before blending outwards, thanks to the blendability of the formula.

Its lovely shade and formula aside, we’re also obsessed with the case of this lipstick, which is inspired by the killer heels that Louboutin is best known for.

Christian Louboutin Beauty’s Rouge Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip in shade #342M Milky Light is available at Christian Louboutin Pavilion KL boutique. It is also available online for S$103 (~RM334.61), at Selfridges.
