What Your Lipstick Says About You

Did you know that the shape of your lipstick can reveal things about you?

JayGirlsMom (seen in the pretty photo at right) and I were talking about our favorite lipstick. She swears by L'Oreal's Infallible Never Fail Lipstick in Almandine -- it lasts all day and when she kisses her daughter, it doesn't come off on her.

My favorite shade? Revlon's ColorStay Soft & Smooth Lipcolor in Divine Port Wine. It stays on even after some light smooching. 

But what about the shape of your lipstick? After many uses, lipsticks take on a shape -- rounded, flat, pointed...which one are you?

Makeup artist Martin Armand has a great chart about what the shape of your lipstick reveals about your personality.

Slanted on one side with slight curve -- you are reserved and love making schedules.

Slanted on one side with a large curve -- you are creative, helpful, and love attention.

Sharp angle/slope tip (like in photo) -- you are opinionated, high-spirited, and selective.

Rounded and smooth -- you are easy-going, generous, and a peacemaker.

Rounded and to a point -- you are lovable, yet stubborn, and very family oriented.

Sharp point, like a pencil -- you are spiritual, curious, and mysterious.

Flat top -- you are to the point, dependable, and have high morals.

Concave -- you are adventurous, complex, and make a great detective.

My lipstick revealed that I am opinionated, high-spirited, and selective. Hmm...sometimes I am. OK...now go dig out your lipstick and let me know what yours says about you!
