What Does Your Lipstick Say About You?

Are you the type who can't leave the house without a swipe of red lipstick? Or do you rock a rich plum just on nights out? And which color means you're most likely to post a selfie?

COVERGIRL recently did a study of 1,000 women to dig into the link between women's personality traits and how they're perceived based on their lipstick color choices. The key results of the study were how easily others' perception of you can change with a simple switch in lipstick color. If you're a red lipstick purist, chances are that others see you as creative and daring, whereas pink lip lovers are viewed as more sociable and fun-loving. If you prefer to rock a plum-colored pout, others deem you independent, but if nude lipstick is your thing, the people around you think that you're warm and caring. 

The survey also found that your lipstick choice can be a window into your own lifestyle habits and personality traits. For instance, women who wear lipstick often (think four or more days per week) were found to be more confident than those who wear it less often. Also, lipstick-wearers are more likely to think of themselves as trendsetters, and they consider themselves more in the know about pop culture.

Additionally, this study found a relationship between your lipstick habits and your social life. Women who wear lipstick often were found to go on nearly three times as many dates as those who do not wear lipstick. They also post twice as many selfies as those who do not wear lipstick—particularly if they're red lipstick wearers! Women who wear lipstick often are also found to exercise almost twice as often as those who do not wear lipstick. Compared to the red lipstick lovers, women who wear pink, nude or plum lipstick were more likely to stay home on a Saturday night, while red lipstick lovers were more likely to be found out at the bar.

Based on this study, your choice in lipstick (or lack thereof) might be more than just a beauty statement, so be sure to experiment with a few different colors before you decide on your #1 hue—who knows what it might say about you!
