You've been warned: the following is an unabashed '90s fashion appreciation post. Where do we start: from plaid outfits, to school girl garb a la Spice Girls, to chokers, to everything denim...it was a good ten-year run of all things casual cool.
In our minds, the decade was all about the brown lip, too. From the Kate Moss' cool nudes, the Rachel Green true brown shade (maybe only second famous to that phenomenal haircut), to the deep berry puckers that everyone from teenage Drew Barrymore to Gwen Stefani would sport, it was only a matter of time before a beauty brand took to our most-loved decade and came up with a line of matte lipsticks inspired by '90s browns. We raise our mood ring-festooned hands in allegiance to you, Maybelline.
Here's five of our favorite '90s looks, and the lipstick that vibes best with each:
Denim button-down + choker + Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Clay Crush
When witches or controversial teen squads were sporting them on '90s TV, the choker became the quintessential acccessory of the time. Pair it with an oversized denim button-down (extra props if it's a '90s hand-me-down from your Kuya), and a peachy nude to draw attention to the face and neck.
School girl style + Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude Nuance
Denim minis and a fashionable fit knit throws you back to playful, sexy mood of '90s prep school style. Amp up the naughty streak with lips in that most perfect shade of brown-pink.
Goth girl hair + slip dress + Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Burgundy Blush
Part Buffy The Vampire Slayer, part Kate Moss slip dress heyday, every '90s chick got this evening look down pat. Wear your with another infamous '90s makeup look, the bloody berry brown lip.
Overalls + Round Sunglasses + Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude Embrace
You couldn't possibly have been a '90s kid without a classic pair of overalls. Pull off a Will Smith in the Fresh Prince of Bel Air era, and boyish chic Meg Ryan style in round sunnies, and you've got yourself a '90s winner—puckers in a sexy shade of nude will tone down the tomboy edge.
Extended neck + minimalist dress + Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Daringly Nude
Goth and grunge were totally in, and this semi-turtleneck dress (another trendy '90s cut) bags both awards. Pair the noir look with a contrasting pale nude lip.
