25 Non-Traditional Lipsticks from Latinx Beauty Brands That You’ll Want to Wear

There are so many beautiful, tried-and-true options when it comes to lipsticks in our favorite hues — nudes, reds, pinks, and burgundies. But sometimes, we want to try something completely different that will automatically turn some heads. We are talking about the other options in the beauty crayon box, like oranges, blues, greens, and greys. These are the colors that make your heart beat faster, while you’re wondering, can I pull these colors off? Yes, m’ijas, you can!

In fact, we wanted to share 25 completely out-of-the-box lip hues that we can’t wait to try out for ourselves. Check them out, grab them, and have fun trying out lip colors you never would have experimented with. Beauty is all about having fun, and these colors are definitely that.

Melt Cosmetics Lipstick in Bane

Sometimes you just want your lipstick as dark as you can get it. Melt Cosmetics’ Bane is a matte black lippie that looks goth, glam, and cool — all at the same time. You can wear it with a minimal eye, or balance out the aesthetic with matching black eye makeup.
