We all love the '90s lip trend, thanks to Kylie Jenner, who is arguably responsible for single-handedly bringing the brown, nude, and deep burgundy lip looks back into vogue. What's her secret? Before she created her matte Lip Kit empire, Jenner turned to lip pencils to help her achieve this look. If you want to hop on board with the trend, here's the one lip pencil brand you need to know about to nail that coveted '90s lip look.
Way before Kylie Cosmetics and the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit came into our lives, Jenner was enhancing her already enhanced pout by overlining her lips with lip pencils for added volume. She often contoured her lips with a blend of shades, but her favorite go-to, MAC Cosmetics' Spice lip pencil, grew in demand to the point the company was experiencing product shortages. Behold, the power of the pout.
Now, brands have jumped on the bee stung, '90s brown pout trend and released a slew of products that mimic Jenner's infamous lips. At the top of the list is Bodyography, a Southern California-based brand that makes antioxidant lip pencils that feel like lipstick but have the staying power of lip pencils. Their products smooth and fill in the fine lines and wrinkles on your lips, thanks to ingredients like Coconut Oil and Vitamin E. Lip pencils are my favorite tool to work with because they're precise and blending colors together is easy, and this brand's offerings help to do just that.
Below are Bodyography's best pencil shades to help you create a '90s look.
