2020 was definitely the year everybody got into coffee. From the TikTok trending Dalgona coffee to the simpler Kori Kohi recipe, there’s a cup (whether iced or hot) that you’ve surely tried and have grown to love in the past few months. Surprisingly enough, makeup brands have also experienced a caffeine high by releasing lipstick collections based on everyone’s favorite brew. Though lip products have been kept to the confines of an Instagram selfie because of the mask requirement, nothing beats a pretty nude lippie to lift up your mood on days you feel down.
Here are 10 local brands that offer coffee-colored nude lipsticks you can shop now:
1. Ever Bilena
Shades to shop: LTD Liquid Lipstick in Moroccan Spice and Tiramisu
Still one of the best liquid lipsticks we’ve ever tried that lasts as long as it promises, EB’s LTD liquid lippie has a beautiful true brown shade called Chocolate Truffle. Meanwhile, Tiramisu is a creamy reddish nude you’d also love to try.
