What Your Lipstick Color Says About You

But lets consult the psychology text books before we go there. Most people have a favorite color, right? There is an ‘ecological valence theory’ (EVT)  to explain why people have preferences for different colors, and its based around your emotional experiences with them. They have to be positive mind you, so if your lovely mom wore a lot of purple, you’re likely to like it. If your favorite cat was mink, you’re going to like mink. If your school uniform was red, chances are you’re not a massive red fan.

So lets get down to the important stuff: If you pick a red lipstick it says certain things about you. We’ve broken it down to basics. Read and learn, then discover your new favorites.

You like reds and deep berries

You’re confident, assertive and self-assured, with a slightly naughty side. You’re not afraid to grab all the attention and you have a unique sense of style.

You like corals and oranges

You’re a glass-half-full type and you like to add a little quirk to your classics. You’re experimental, which sometimes translates to low commitment bordering on the fickle.

You like pinks and purples

You’re empathetic and ambitious all at once and you have a tendency to play safe when it comes to big decision-making. You think nothing of dropping a few zeros on a pair of it-sunglasses though.

You like browns and taupes

You’re dependable and composed and have a romantic nostalgia for your past. You also have a very powerful side and you’re not afraid to use it.

You like nudes

Some people thing you’re shy but they don’t know you properly yet. In fact you’re poised and peaceful and a friend to everyone. If people want advice they come to you.
