If You Loved Jen Aniston's Iconic Brick-Brown Lipstick on "Friends," You'll Really Love These 7 Similar Lip Shades
The “Rachel” haircut wasn’t the only beauty trend that Jennifer Aniston made famous during the run of hit show, “Friends.” How about all the mini skirts and black stockings? And, of course, her signature brick-brown lip color? Enough. Said. Rachel Green is ultimate style goals, no matter if you’re nostalgic for the 90s or not. (And of course you’re nostalgic for the 90s.)
When Jen Aniston finally revealed Rachel Green’s legendary shade of reddish brown lipstick just a couple years ago, we added to cart faster than you can say, “We were on a break!” The lip color in question: MAC Satin Lipstick in Paramount.
It’s a moody nude that you can wear all year long, but the shade really shines in the fall and winter seasons when our closet leans decidedly darker—the black stockings, remember?
Shop the original Paramount shade or find your perfect brick-brown match in one of these seven dupes that range from hydrating lip tints to ultra-matte crayons to classic tubes.
