My Current Favorite Lipsticks (90's Edition)

On Instagram yesterday in honor of National Lipstick Day, I posted a photo of what was in my current lipstick rotation. I happened to notice that all the lipsticks were pretty similar in shades despite ranging from drugstore to high end. Lately I have been loving the "90's" shades. I think it's part nostalgia that I totally dig these shades so much. I remember growing up as a kid and lip colors were either nude, red, or a brown-y mauve shade. While the shades aren't exactly as brown as I remember, these shades still make me reminisce of my tween years rockin' a nude/brown lip.

  1. Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 13 (Marvelous Mauve)- It took me forever to get my hands on this lip color because it was forever sold out in every Sephora location I went to. Now that I have it, I am not disappointed. This is a beautiful dusty rose color that slightly darkens after application. For me it's a great everyday color. If you are interested in this shade, Sephora has currently marked them down. I think perhaps they are discontinuing the shades. Sad panda.
  2. NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Tres Leches- Holy pigmentation, Batman! This is a shade that some wouldn't consider 90's but it's more of a nudey brown and for me a MLBB shade. 
  3. MAC Faux- A Back 2 Mac pick, which I wrote about here, this is another MLBB shade and one of the many shades people have selected to get that Kylie Jenner lip.
  4. MAC Whirl- When everyone went fanatical for Whirl lip liner I kinda went "meh." I'm not much of a lip liner girl. To be honest, I hate buying expensive ones because I don't use them much so I never paid attention to Whirl until MAC came out with it in lipstick form. Now this will be a staple in my rotation. It's one of my favorite colors to wear to work.
  5. Maybelline Untainted Spice- Brought to my attention by Hollyannaeree, this was an unexpected favorite. I thought it would be too brown but in actuality, this shade is flattering on many skin tones. It's a little darker than Whirl and isn't matte.
  6. Maybelline Touch of Spice- A rosy plum that leans more pink than brown. I included this in the group because it's definitely another lipstick I reach for often.
  7. Urban Decay Matte Revolution in 1993- At first I didn't pay much attention to this lipstick because: 1-I was trying to avoid purchasing anymore colors and 2-I try to avoid hype and impulse purchases. However, when I swatched it in the store, the tiny Gollum voice of "Precious" crept in. This is my latest purchase but I am in absolute love with it. It's not as matte as Whirl but the pigmentation is beautifully opaque. 

If you are looking for a 90's lipstick, I would recommend 1993 or Untainted Spice out of the bunch I personally picked. Whirl is a close third but it may be too drying for some.

So what's your favorite 90's lipstick? Or what is your favorite lipstick in general? Is there a shade that you consider your signature one? Please let me know!
