We’ve seen it for months now, ribbed tanks, flannel, crop tops, those chokers we all wore circa 1998 while performing Wannabe in your driveway with your 4 BFFs (don’t lie, you know you did it). The 90’s are back, baby! And I have to admit that I’m totally digging it.

Needless to say, what inspires fashion, inspires beauty, and with King Kylie killing the beauty industry right now, her ‘90s inspired pout is a hot topic and in high demand for replication. Don’t fight it; it’s coming back with or without you.

As I’m sure you’re well aware, Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits sell out within minutes of her exclusive on-line launches, and unless you’re living in the US, they can run you a pretty penny in shipping and conversion rates! So without further ado let’s take a look at the hottest ‘90s inspired lip colours you need to get to know this summer.

Really, when you take a look at Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit colours, almost every shade is ‘90s inspired.  She’s got her Brown liquid lipsticks in True Brown K and Dolce K, her Beige kits in Exposed and Candy K; Posie K representing that gorrrrgeous Berry lippie, and (my guilty pleasures) those iridescent lip colours in her entire Metal Collection (shout out to Reign, cause daaaaaamn girl, that colour?!)

Lip colours have come a long way even in the past year and the range of colours has surpassed most beauty lover’s expectations. Inspired by Kylie Jenner’s Lip colours, inspired by the ‘90s (~deep~) I’ve come up with four main lip colours that encompass this look.


Looking for a soft, milkshake brown, Dolce K dupe, Rachel from Friends lip colour? New* Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Ashton is perfect for a subtle kiss of brown. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Dubai offers a medium cool brown that best compliments deep tan skin tones for a modern, matte finish and a creamy mocha hue.

Feeling a little more daring?  MAC in Antique Velvet is a rich, dark chocolate brown sure to turn heads.

For a cool toned nude lip, Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Carmello is a beautiful beige mauve, while Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick in Child Star is a soft nude on the warmer side.

Looking for a subtle splash of that “my lips but better” beige lip colour? Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Seduction provides an understated yet polished kiss of colour that looks incredible on a wide range of skin tones.

Urban Decay’s VICE Lipsticks launch Summer 2016 and swatches have been leaked, pouring out beautiful berries like After Dark, a comfort matte formula that gives you that matte look you crave, with the movement of a satin.

If you’re looking for a price point that won’t break your wallet, Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid in Berry Boost is a deep raspberry to DIE for.

(Guuuuuyyyyss, why am I so obsessed with this look?)

As previously mentioned, Urban Decay VICE lipstick is a new line of lipsticks (100 of them, to be exact) with a handy feature to shop by finish and they have an aaaaamazing range of metallic finishes.  My favourite is Back Door, because (as I’m sure you can guess) it looks so much like Kylie’s Metal Lip Kit in Reign!

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick also has a range of colours with Metallic finishes.  The Shade Piaf truly takes a page straight from the ‘90s, a cool metallic chocolate brown.  Paying tribute to that ‘90s grunge, Nayeon is a gunmetal metallic black – a very similar dupe to Kylie’s highly anticipated newest member of the Metallic family, KyMajesty.


So there you have it.  No more excuses. It’s time to say Bye Bye Bye to any doubt you have in finding that perfect Kylie Jenner hue, and welcome the ‘90s back into your life, one lip colour at a time. Girl Power.
