Finding the right lipstick shade that complements your skin tone and makes a statement has never been easier with all the options available. Still, some looks can feel intimidating to pull off because they’re the ultimate in bold, look-at-me beauty.
Brown lipstick is a neutral that falls into that category due to the depth and richness of the hues it comes in. Despite that, A-listers and beauty aficionados alike have been donning the classic color as of late, prompting those who never considered sporting brown lips to get in on the trend.
If you fall in that latter group but you’re unsure where to start with how to pull off brown lipstick keep reading, as we’re sharing seven shades of brown lipstick to consider rocking this season.
One of the easiest ways to rock brown lipstick like a pro is to seek out an option that offers two shades in one — and we’re talking all about taupe lipstick. This hue is a grayish-brown color that provides your pout with a muted look that can suit your neutral and full glam makeup looks perfectly.
Not to mention, it’s also a stylish option that pairs well with warm or chilly temps. Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-itude to transform your lips.
2. Milk Chocolate
Food-inspired hair color trends have been getting major attention, so it’s only natural for the look to influence the lip makeup game. Chocolate lipstick not only looks as rich and decadent as the name suggests, but it’s also a cool way to bring an edgy, cool-girl aesthetic to life with your makeup look.
For a true chocolate shade, swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick in Box O Chocolate or L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Luminous Hydrating Lipstick + Nourishing Serum in Brilliant Brown.
3. Dark Chocolate
While we’re on the topic of chocolate lipstick, we couldn’t move on without mentioning dark chocolate as a favorite brown shade. Whether it’s a nude for you or you want to take a vampy look for a spin, this is your go-to. Dark chocolate lipstick looks as sexy as it sounds tasty and doesn’t have to be relegated to only the cold weather months.
Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in Spice to get the look. This cream lipstick offers super saturated color that won’t smudge, bleed, feather or migrate. And the argan oil and sesame seed oil formula leaves lips feeling soft and nourished.
4. Deep Sand Brown
As the weather warms up you may start fantasizing about days spent at the beach. Well, this spring and summer you can match your lipstick with your destination and try a sandy-brown hue for your pout. We love the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Dazzling Doe for its high-shine finish and hydrating feel.
5. Honey Brown
Satisfy your sweet tooth with a honey brown lipstick that works for all skin tones. Sure you can’t actually eat it, but it serves up serious style when it comes to your beauty look. This shade of brown is perfect for all weather but it’s especially perfect for those warm weather months when you want to keep your look neutral with a touch of flair.
Need a recommendation? We thought so! Our pick is the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick in Sweet Tooth, which has a rich, matte finish that doesn’t make your lips feel dry throughout the day.
6. Copper Brown
If sporting a high-shine pout is your forte, glossy brown lips will come in handy. In case you haven’t noticed, glossy lips have become the ultimate beauty staple, and pairing it with a brown shade is a win-win. The Infallible 8 Hour Pro Lip Gloss, hydrating finish in truffle offers a coppery brown shade perfect for anyone who loves a metallic shimmer. Plus, this super-pigmented lip gloss hydrates and stays in place without fading or feathering.
7. Red Brown
We understand that red lipstick is just the ultimate go-to for many and departing from this shade is highly unlikely. If you love a good red but also want to dip your toes (or lips, rather) into another color option, let us introduce you to red brown. The rustic, almost brick-like hue is a true brown with red tones that give it dimension and richness while remaining neutral.
Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in Brazil Nut to get the look. The creamy, soft texture glides on smoothly thanks to caring ingredients that hydrate and soften the lips.
