If there's one stand-out star of last year's Love Island, it's Faye Winter's brown lipstick. Love it or loathe it, Faye's commitment to her brown lipstick has had the whole internet talking, and it turns out that the trending lip look has translated into sales too.

Yes, it's time to make room in your makeup bag because chocolate-toned lipsticks and cocoa-coloured lip liners are officially having their moment. In fact, COLLECTION Cosmetics have reported a whopping 300% spike in sales of their Cappuccino Lip Definer since Faye's signature look hit our screens.

The perfect brown lipliner for re-creating Faye's iconic Love Island look, sales of COLLECTION's Cappuccino Lip Definer have boomed since the trend hit our screens.

The easy-to-use retractable pencil is not only an absolute bargain (perfect for trying out a trend) it’s ultra long-lasting thanks to its creamy texture that will see you through from day to night.

But, if you're a proper fan of the look, Faye has now revealed the lipliner she actually uses. (We'd been trying to guess for ages!) Speaking to Grazia{ =nofollow}, she told us her secret formula is MAC lip pencil in Cork, which she ‘offgrades’ with MAC Myth, a pale pink lipstick. And she doesn't care whether you're a fan of the look or not. ‘I know the lipstick is a big thing,’ she laughed. ‘But I like my brown lipstick and I’m going to continue to wear it!’
