Trust us—we won’t steer you wrong. So to all the caffeine lovers out there, get ready to revamp your lip makeup. Ranging from vivid pumpkin spice latte to deliciously refreshing caramel frappuccino hues, we’ve rounded up lip product shades that are similar to our favorite coffee orders. Read on to find a lipstick, lip gloss, or lip stain that will best suit you.
Coffee Order #1: Double Shot Of Espresso
If you’re ordering coffee with a double shot of espresso, chances are you’re running around with no time to spare—and that means no time to reapply your lip color either. So reach for a long-lasting formula in a shade that’s close to your natural lip hue. Try the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Signature Shiny Lip Stain Lipstick, our first lip stain with a high-shine finish and lightweight feel. And for a matte finish, grab the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain, which will give off a vivid color pigment that will feel weightless on the lips.
Coffee Order #2: Pumpkin Spice Latte
A pumpkin spice latte does well at putting us in a warm and cozy mood, thanks to its yummy scent and reminder of the holiday seasons. While it may be most popular at coffeehouses in the fall, it’s a year-round stunner for your pout. For this look, your lip color should be a warm brown shade featuring hints of orange and red tones, just like the latte itself. Use the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus by Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick in Nu Extreme, which gives off major color pigment in one swipe or grab the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Bare Attraction, which has a lush, velvety texture that will feel soft and comfortable on your lips. And try the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Signature Shiny Lip Stain Lipstick in Be Independent for a lasting, shiny finish that won’t leave your lips feeling sticky.
Coffee Order #3: Lavender Latte
The lighter hues inside of this calming latte can work as a stunning color on your lips. So try embracing more subtle shades like nude-pink. For a soft and light matte option, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-Moiselle Pink, formulated with hydrating ingredients to give your lips a smooth and comfortable wear. Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus by Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick in Nu Insouciant, for a cream lightweight finish with a non-drying formula. And grab the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in Fairest Nude, formulated with argan oil to leave your lips feeling soft and moisturized.
Coffee Order #4: Black
For those who love the bold, rich taste of a strong cup of black coffee, opt for a lip color that’s just as daring as your morning coffee. Try sporting a deeper hue, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in Raisin Rapture, which will hydrate your lips thanks to its dose of nourishing ingredients like sesame seed oil. Or reach for the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain in I Dare for an ultra-lightweight, fresh matte finish. Another option is L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus by Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick in Nu Artistique, which glides on easily across the lips thanks to its soft and creamy texture.
Coffee Order #5: Caramel Frappuccino
Caramel frappuccinos have a warm and golden buttery hue, that makes this drink look as good as it tastes. For this inspired lip color, reach for warm light brown shades with hints of gold, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Shine Lipstick in Glossy Fawn, formulated with nourishing oils to condition the lips. For a glossy finish that won’t fade throughout the day, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 8 Hour Pro Lip Gloss, hydrating finish in Dulce de Leche. And for a luxurious pop of color just as sweet as your frap, try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus by Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick in Nu Excessif.
Coffee Order #6: Peppermint Mocha
Peppermint mocha is a coffee flavor we just can’t leave off our list. And while it may only be a seasonal flavor, it definitely makes for a beautiful lip color that can be worn at any time. Since this drink features a dark mocha sauce, why not try a few deep brown mocha-inspired lip shades. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Statement Nude, our first whipped matte gloss that won’t leave your lips feeling dry. Or try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in Ginger Spice, formulated with a dose of sesame seed oil to help keep your lips moisturized.
