There was a time when reds and pinks were only meant for younger women while browns and maroons were called ‘mom colours’. But welcome to the 21st century, where women are breaking these silly beauty stereotypes left, right and centre and rocking all the gorgeous lip shades. Translation: doing whatever the hell they want.

If you thought brown is not a ‘young colour’, this will change your mind. Nude brown and deep brown lip colours are huge RN, and if you haven’t gotten yourself a brown lippie yet, we hope it’s not that silly beauty notion that’s stopping you. Need proof?
