Let’s be real—who doesn’t love chocolate? So it makes sense that the beauty industry has delivered us with the next big makeup trend: chocolate lipstick. No, chocolate lipstick isn’t a sweet treat—it simply signifies a gorgeous brown shade that can be worn on your lips. As you might guess, chocolate lipstick refers to a deep brown lip color that can be used to enhance your overall beauty look. But, before you go picking up any old brown lipstick thinking you know the secret to nailing this beauty trend, you might (definitely) want to keep scrolling to get a head start on shades to use and learn how to make them pop for the most enticing result. Every beauty tip you need to know about picking out a chocolate lipstick and applying it like a pro is below.
Before learning how to rock the chocolate lipstick trend, let’s first talk lipstick options. With so many lipstick shades available, you might find yourself overwhelmed if you make a beeline straight to the makeup aisle. To help you nail the look, below you will find nine beautiful brown lipstick shades you can’t go wrong with.
For a matte milk chocolate lip...try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in He Thinks He’s Matte-Cho.
For a subdued matte milk chocolate lip...try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-itude or L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Shake Down.
For a glossy, melted milk chocolate lip...try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Dazzling Doe.
For a subdued satin milk chocolate lip...try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Golden Splendor or L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Toasted Almond.
For a velvety smooth, satin chocolate lip...try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Brazil Nut.

Once you’ve chosen your chocolate lipstick, it’s time to apply your brown shade. Follow our steps for the perfect pout.
Step 1: Exfoliate your lips. The last thing you want is for your chocolate lipstick to look anything less than stunning. And if your lips are flaky, a dark lip color will just accentuate that. To prep your lips for lipstick application, exfoliate them with the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Scrub. With dry hands, apply the scrub to dry lips, then gently massage it in with water and rinse off thoroughly when you’re done.
Step 2: Line your lips. Depending on which chocolate lipstick shade you plan to use, line your lips with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lip Liner in Nudes for Life, Toffee To Be, or Au Naturale to help define the shape of your lips and prevent your chocolate lipstick from feathering outside the lines.
Step 3: Apply lipstick. Using your chocolate lipstick shade of choice, start at your cupid’s bow and work your way out to the outer corners of your lips for a perfectly filled pout. By starting in the center of your lips, especially if you’re using a liquid lipstick, you’ll be less likely to veer outside the lines. If, by chance, you still do get a little out of the lines, simply soak a cotton swab with the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof - All Skin Types to touch up the edges, and help smooth things out with a quick touch of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer, which is available in 14 shades so you can easily find one that matches your skin tone and undertone. Voila! You’re officially a chocolate lipstick expert.
