Finding the perfect brown lip is almost as hard as finding the right shade of red. Red is actually the reason finding a true brown lip is so hard — so many shades that claim to be brown have such strong red undertones the color looks like a deep burgundy when applied. If that’s the look you’re going for, cool. But if you want a true brown lip color this experience might cause you to throw in the towel.
