'90s Lipsticks To Make Your #TBT Dreams Come True

Photographed by Erin Yamagata.
It’s no secret that '90s trends — both beauty and fashion — have made a bigger comeback in the last year than Britney Spears in the late aughts. And, while we love ourselves a skin-baring crop top and pair of denim overalls, we’re especially giddy about the throwback lips. Mauve is having a moment. Burgundy and brown are so now.
The best part? These once fear-inspiring shades are perfectly on-point for fall. So, now that you’re pumped to hop on the bandwagon, it’s time to figure out which hue is perfect for you (unintentional rhyming is fun).
As much as we wish picking out lipstick were a one-color-fits-all process, it’s a wee bit more complicated than that. To help you find your '90s-pout soulmate, we enlisted Avon global celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen. Needless to say, she’s quite the matchmaker. Ahead, find the one that'll suit your skin tone — and, undoubtedly, bring out your inner Jennifer Aniston, circa 1994.
