I'm pretty sure you've been feeling the return of the '90s. From fashion to beauty, everything that your younger self sported in that decade is back in style. Plaid everything, scrunchies, and grunge clothing can be seen everywhere. As for makeup, brown lipsticks ~dominate~ the trending LOTDs.
The main difference between '90s brown lippies and the 2018 chocolate shades are the undertones—the ones in the market today are more flattering for warm skintones, and aren't too stark for everyday wear. Also, the lipsticks come in various formulas to suit one's preference and lifestyle.
That said, we rounded up the best ones you can wear on the daily. Check them all out below:
