So what does your lipstick shade say about you?

The thought of assigning personalities to lipsticks sounds interesting. After all it's not far fetched, as colors do impact our feelings and choices and we perceive them in different ways. Take for example the color blue. Sky blue conveys peace and happiness just like looking up on a clear, sunny day while a dark blue could trigger sadness as in the saying "feeling blue'.

There's new research which has been added to existing research on the most popular shades worn by women and how they are perceived by others. It was a collaboration with CoverGirl, Harvard and Massachusetts General Hospital Research Partners. They focused on 4 groups of lip colors: Red, Pink, Nude and Plum.

Red Lipstick

Red Lipstick wearers were perceived as being daring, creative, ambitious types.

Pink Lipstick

Pink Lipstick wearers were thought of as sociable, pretty and sweet.

Nude Lipstick

Nude Lipstick wearers were thought to be dependable, reliable and down-to-earth.

Plum Lipstick

Plum Lipstick wearers were seen as refined, attractive and cultured.

I did further research myself on what traits were associated with Purple and Orange lipsticks. You can find those on my site at:
