Love Island’s Gemma Owen swears by this £4.99 brown lipstick

A new brown lipstick icon is in town...

Gemma Owen lipstick

Last year, Faye Winter's brown lipstick was basically a paid actress. The Islander's lippy got the whole internet talking, crowning Faye the 'brown lipstick icon'. Now, much-loved Islander Gemma Owen has come to take her crown, flaunting a gorgeous deep brown lip episode after episode. Oh - and it's under £5.

Twitter was quick to draw comparisons between the Islanders, with users saying "Gemma has stolen Faye's lipstick from last year" and "Gemma's lipstick is giving me flashbacks to Faye."

Despite the similarity, Boots - the Love Island 2022 beauty partner - has confirmed that Gemma's lipstick is the Sleek MakeUP Matte Me Liquid Lipstick (£4.99) in shade Shabby Chic, which is different to Faye's, who used Collection's Capuccino Lip Definer (£2.79).

The lipstick is intensely pigmented with a matte finish and boasts a budge-proof formula and - if Gemma is anything to go by - it's pretty kiss-proof too...

Unlike many liquid lipsticks, the Sleek formula does not dry out your lips and is available in eight different shades - including a bright red - to help you find your true match.

If you want Gemma's full look, don't forget to line the lips beforehand with the 17. Lip Define Pencil Soft Liner (£2), also spotted in the villa. Half the price of your daily oat latte. You're welcome.
