Fact: dark lipstick is a surefire way to instantaneously rev up your cool factor. Whether it’s a deep berry shade or a flaming red pout, you’re sure to draw tons of attention with a single pucker of your lips.

Recently, celebrities have been resurrecting a 90s dark lip color trend that’s making us all double back and wonder why we ditched the look in the first place: brown lipstick.

Although this shade might seem intimidating at first, it truly is the epitome of confidence with a bit of sass (which every woman needs every now and then!). With quite a few fierce celebs like Zendaya and Rihanna being fans of the look, it’s no wonder we’re all jumping on the brown bandwagon. Read on for our best brown lipstick picks!
