You’ll also be getting the softest pout with its hydrating formula. Each lippie from the Rouge Dior collection boasts red peony extract which gives your lips deep nourishment.

Whether you want to go for a bold lip look or one that’s sheerer, the Ink Velvet collection should help you achieve just that.
One shade that stands out is the Ink Velvet 25 Cinnamon Nude. This perfect mix of brown and brick red makes for a great “cinnamon milk tea” option.
True to its name, this bottle of lipstick will give you a great velvet finish.

Etude Fixing Tint Nudifull Espresso in #Vanilla Cream
Despite its name, you won’t be getting a fully beige hue with this lippie. You’ll still see a milky, brown-toned hue when you swipe this pale pink shade on.
It has a hydro-matte finish that blends seamlessly for the most natural-looking pout. The formula is also smudge-resistant – perfect for mask-wearing.

Bobbi Brown Luxe Shine Intense Lipstick in Claret
Stand out from the rest with this “cinnamon milk tea” lipstick that has a high-shine finish and a bold, rich red shade.

Canmake Melty Luminous Rouge in #04
The sheerness of this lippie makes us want to call it a “jelly lipstick”. Because of its texture, dressing your lips in this gives your lips an irresistible, candy-like appearance.
Its shade is definitely more brown compared to others on our list, which makes it a darker, richer shade that has an alluring vibe.
Canmake Melty Luminous Rouge #04 retails for RM69.90, available at Guardian.
Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte in #274 Killing Me Softly
For a pinker variation of a “cinnamon milk tea” lipstick, try the Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte in shade #274 Killing Me Softly.
Instead of a red undertone, this lippie has a pink one. This makes the entire shade slightly lighter and rosier than the others.
It blurs the lips ever so slightly for a diffused, just-kisssed look. You might even forget that you’re wearing lipstick too because of its lightweight formula.
Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte #274 Killing Me Softly retails for RM253, available at Zalora.
