September 22nd marks the official end of summer and the start of the most trendsetting season known to wo(man)kind –Fall. Crop tops transition to chunky sweaters and sandals are exchanged for boots — as for makeup, bronzy hues for face are typically replaced with bold, rich colors. This year, the 90s lip is back in a major way (think: 90’s Drew Barrymore). Ready to test the waters on this throwback trend? Read on to discover six 6 on trend lipsticks that will perfect your vintage pout (and have you reciting lyrics from your favorite 90s boy band.)
Grunge, classic, modern, mysterious — this lip color can do it all. Though a bit of an oxymoron, Glastonberry will give you a fabulous matte lip with just a bit of illumination. Nordstrom.com, $32
Worn by role models such as Nia Long and Jennifer Aniston, the “90s lip” is authenticated by using deep berry, or chocolate hues of lipstick or gloss, or simply by filling in lips with a similarly hued lip pencil. “Whirl” is quintessential shade for the ultimate 90s girl. Something about completely filling in lips with a dark pencil feels like taking a journey through Cher Horowitz’ (Clueless) makeup drawer. nordstrom.com $16.50.
It’s the PERFECT shade of brick red to help you channel your inner Drew. We love that it’s a vivid, modern take on 90’s red….classic with a dash of goth. Saks.com, $32.
Need a break from rich berry and jewel tones? Switch gears with Chanel Rouge Allure Intense Long-Wear Lip Color in Pensive. This just might be your perfect nude. TIP: Warm up this color up with a flesh tone lip liner to give this nude shade some added dimension. Think: 90s Naomi Campbell. Nordstrom.com, $35
