Several people at two different Ulta stores tried to help me find brown lip shades.
We looked at Bare Minerals, Lancôme, Ulta (their own line), Burt's Bees, & dozens others. I nearly bought a brown color by It Cosmetics, but it was $24, & I couldn't test the color.
I tried some Nyx vampy browns on my hand, but they were too dark. >>>
The closest we came to what I wanted was a shade called "1993" by Urban Decay (below), which is discontinued except as a lip pencil. It costs $20, & I didn't buy it.
