Glossy and water-glazed lips have been all over our feeds ever since the resurgence of Y2K trends, and we’re glad it’s sticking around for the summer. If you’re looking for a new “milk tea jelly” lippie to add to your collection, we’ve got the perfect recommendation from M.A.C. Read on to find out what it is!

What is the “milk tea jelly” trend all about?

Milk tea jelly lipsticks come in flattering nudes and brown tones that are similar to the colour of a cup of milk tea you may order at a bubble tea shop. Chinese netizens breathed life into the trend and pretty soon, we were seeing glossy pouts in cinnamon-brown and mauve-nude shades all over our feed.

The great thing about “milk tea” colours is that they are flattering on multiple skin tones, and won’t make your teeth appear as yellow compared to more striking shades like red or fuchsia. Their jelly-like texture also adds a youthful vibe to any look.

A new mocha jelly lippie from Mac to try

Much like milk tea, we can always count on a good cup of coffee to give us an energy boost, but seeing the perfect mocha lip colour really perks us up in a different kind of way.

The rosy-brown colour gives your lips a warm and cosy feel, and is wearable for almost any occasion. The slight shimmer in the lipstick also adds to its ultra glossy effect.

As M.A.C’s lustreglass high shine lipsticks have an incredibly moisturising formula as well; you don’t have to be afraid of unsightly dry lips. These hyaluronic acid-infused lipsticks moisturise, nourish, and condition lips while leaving behind a radiant flash of sheer high-shine colour.

M.A.C’s Lustreglass High Shine Lipstick range is unfortunately not available in Malaysia. But if you’d still like to get hold of the lipstick in “Like I Was Saying”, it retails for RM136.50 on Taobao.
