The case against brown lipstick: Exhibit 1 the ageing effect
I know the 90s are back and I’m a 90s kid but…yuck. Brown lips are gross and add 15 years to a face. I got my first Rimmel Heather Shimmer lippie free with more! magazine and dabbed it on whilst frowning over Position of the Fortnight.
You couldn’t open a magazine in the 90s without the beauty pages or a supermodel gushing over Mac’s Spice lip liner. When Mac finally arrived in the UK it was one of the first pencils I picked up and tried… thinking WHAT is everyone going on about? Maybe it’s the lighting in the store and I should buy it anyway?

The case against brown lipstick: Case Closed
I think the way to appreciate the 90s is to pick a choose the best bits such as minimalism and grunge and ditch the worst bits such as brown lippie, hair straighteners and The Rachel. Ha!
