I’m a child of the 90’s and that means that the color of my first borrowed/stolen lipstick from my mother was brown.
If you lived in the 90’s there is a 90% chance that you owned some shade of brown lipstick. This lip color was the queen of lip shades. I’ll grant you that it’s not the most universally flattering color, it will age you about twenty years but that was one of the reasons I loved it so much when I was five years old secretly painting my lips in my parents bathroom.
Now that I’m a grown up, at least everyone seems to think I am, I can get out of the bathroom with my dark brown lips without it being kind of inappropriate and feeling like a proper adult. I know Spring is coming in full force and that means corals, pinks, oranges but I think I’ll give brown a chance.
These are some of my favorites brown lipsticks.
