Taupe Lipstick Is Trending: Spring’s New ‘It’ Lip

Whatever Gigi Hadid does we tend to love, and last week she gave us all major makeup envy when she stepped out in that lipstick.

Channeling nineties glamour (our favourite kind), think JLo circa ‘Jenny From The Block’, the smoldering, suits-all shade rivals even Kylie’s coveted Lipkit in Dolce K. The lippy in question is in fact Maybelline’s New 24 Hour Liquid Lipstick in Toast, which unfortunately isn’t available in the UK *sobs*.

Since debuting the colour at the Fashion LA Awards she’s upped her trendsetter status, causing an Instagram frenzy over the new ‘it’ lip.

But don’t despair, we’ve found four dead-ringer dupes to try. Our top tip: do like the supermodel and team with a wash of eyeshadow in a similar shade, and add a slick of white pencil along your water line, to brighten and open up your eyes.
