It's arguably the most iconic TV show of all time—Friends' popularity has barely wavered since it aired almost 30 years ago. And if you're embracing the 90s beauty trends revival, we can now reveal the exact lipstick Rachel Green's Jennifer Aniston wore while filming the show.

Rachel is easily the character who had the biggest impact on beauty trends of the decade. As well as being one of the top TV style icons of all time (check out the best Rachel Green outfits for fashionable proof), Aniston and her signature haircut—a choppy, layered shag cut dubbed "The Rachel"—ended up becoming super popular.

Said 'do is even making a comeback in the 2020s, with stars like Chrissy Teigen reinventing "The Rachel" for themselves. Clearly, it's one for the beauty history books!

Surprisingly enough, Aniston herself didn't actually love the hairstyle as much as the rest of us. "I love Chris [her hairstylist], and he's the bane of my existence at the same time because he started that damn Rachel, which was not my best look," she told Allure back in 2011. "How do I say this? I think it was the ugliest haircut I've ever seen." Yikes! Well, we loved it all the same.

Speaking of love, we absolutely adore the perfectly-90s brown-nude lip that Rachel Green so frequently sported during Friends episodes—and we found out the exact lipstick shade for you!

As for Rachel's signature lip color, in an interview with Glamour a few years ago, Jennifer Aniston revealed the exact lippie she wore while filming the classic show:  a warm, slightly pink-brown shade by MAC Cosmetics called "Paramount." 

"MAC's Paramount lipstick... It was a browny brick [color]," Aniston told the outlet. "I remember that was my go-to color when I was doing Friends."

Considering Friends is still super popular, it's no surprise that MAC is still making the iconic shade all these decades later. Is this one in your lipstick collection? It should be!
