6 Best Brown Lipsticks For Fall
From flannel shirts to mom jeans to color changing beauty products, we owe a lot of this year’s (and last’s) fashion and beauty trends to the era a grunge: The oh-so-glorious 1990s. And just when we thought we’ve had enough of the decade’s greatest revivals, brown lipstick has made its way back in the spotlight as one of the hottest makeup trends to try this fall. Looking to give this lipstick trend a try? We share our six top picks for the brown lipsticks we deem best for fall, below.
At the top of our list is YSL Beauty’s Rouge Pur Couture Satin Radiance Lipstick in Beige Promenade—A.K.A. the perfect dark nude for fall. Formulated with skin care in mind, this classic YSL lipstick is creamy and won’t dry out your pout, making it perfect for the cooler season ahead.
Calling all ladies who like to make a statement, NYX Professional makeup line of Turnt Up! Lipsticks are what you are looking for. These lightweight lipsticks are bold, beautiful, and come in a variety of fall-inspired shades. If you want to make a bold statement, we recommend trying this lightweight— yet creamy— lipstick in “Dahlia.” For added moisture, apply a layer a hydrating lip balm underneath.
YSL Beauty is at it again with their Rouge Pur Couture Satin Radiance Lipstick in Brun Abstrait. The rosy brown shade is a great starting place for those looking to experiment with this fall trend without going all the way and committing to a dark brown. And although this classic lipstick won’t dry out your lips, we recommend you take your lipstick to the next level and layer an SPF-infused lip balm underneath for an added layer of protection.
GINGER & NUTMEG
Speaking of trends, NYX Professional Makeup Ombre Lip Duo in Ginger & Nutmeg combines fall 2016’s brown lipstick trend with perhaps one of the most popular beauty trends: Ombré. The 2-in-1 lipstick color coordinates a lip liner and matte lipstick to help you achieve the perfect ombré lip. To create your ombré look, start with a freshly exfoliated pout— we share a 3-ingredient DIY lip scrub recipe, here— that has been primed with a hydrating lip balm. Next, apply the lipstick shade to your lips (just like you would normally). Complete the look by lining your lips and filling in the corners with the attached lip liner and applying the lipstick shade once more to blend the two tones together.
MAISON MILK CHOCOLATE BROWN
If camel is more your color, we recommend trying NYX Professional Makeup Matte Lipstick in Maison Milk Chocolate Brown. This neutral matte lippie goes on smooth and dries matte, but won’t leave you with a dry-feeling pout. If you love the color, but want to rock it in gloss, we recommend applying a clear lip oil, like Lancôme’s Juicy Shaker in Mint for a shiny, skin care-inspired finish.
Last but not least, we share one of our favorite shades of brown to try this fall: Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick in Nighthawk. This creamy, chocolate brown lipstick is formulated with aloe, jojoba oil, avocado oil, babassu oil, illipe butter, and vitamin C and vitamin E— so, not only can it give you trendy dark brown lips, it’s also a great pick for your pout!
