GIRL, joke. My buddy Jen’s been roughly sporting the identical shade of brown matte lipstick because the ’90s, and I’ve been bugging her to interrupt out of her consolation zone for years.

Corals, pinks, reds, nudes — critically, any shade apart from that very same ’90s matte brown, however now that the ’90s lip, also referred to as (airquotes) “the Kylie Jenner lip,” is again in model, I don’t really feel like I have to bug her anymore, LOL!!

The lip Jen’s cherished all these years has made a comeback, and you’ll guess she’s prepared for it. 🙂

Me, however, to be sincere, I require some handholding. Again within the day I cherished sporting matte brown lips, and it was all I wore, just about 24/7, however I’m having a tough time now re-seeing myself within the shade.

I’ve gotten hooked up to enjoyable brights and nudes!

However, within the spirit of breaking out of consolation zones, I’m attempting to take my very own recommendation by giving these circa-1995 colours a whirl.

Freaking Whirl…

If I had a greenback for each time I responded, “MAC Whirl Lip Pencil,” every time somebody requested me for a Kylie Jenner lip advice, I’d have sufficient to make a journey world wide. Twice.

Yup, Whirl Lip Pencil. It’s a matte rosy brown within the MAC everlasting line, and it’s been round for ages.

Whirl Lipstick is Whirl Lip Pencil’s fellow lip-loving cousin. Each are the same rosy brown with a flat matte end, however the Lipstick feels thicker and isn’t as dry.

To not say that the lipstick is moisturizing, as a result of it isn’t. In my expertise, the MAC Matte formulation is fairly drying, however that’s common for matte lipstick. In case you keep hydrated and befriend a moisturizing balm (significantly should you apply it commonly at evening earlier than mattress), this matte rosy brown, and MAC’s different mattes, mustn’t suck the entire moisture out of your lips (at the very least not each ounce)…

After sporting it the previous couple of days, I’m shocked by how a lot I prefer it. Due to its rosy tones, it’s not like sporting a full-on matte brown (which I’m sooo not prepared for).

And, uh…that is in all probability going to sound bizarre, nevertheless it’s nearly the identical shade as my gums! — so I assume you may name it an MGBB shade. My Gums However Higher. Haha!

I prefer it, and I’ve gotta give it and the opposite MAC Mattes main props for lasting so long as they do on my lips. The wear and tear time is so boss. Whirl lasts six or seven hours, and that’s by way of a meal and plenty of chugging water from my bkr bottle.
