After checking out the pic of my lipstick yesterday, Melissa from InMyProfessionalOpinion blog said she thought that there had been an article about how a lovelies lipstick shape reflected her personality – so I went to hunting it down. It looks like it might have come from a Glamour Magazine in the 70′s.
So, I wasn’t able to come up with the original article. However, I did find a couple of references to what I was looking for. The first one references the Glamour article and shows some great personality traits. It shows that I would be:
SHARP-ANGLED, WITH CURVED TIP
- Loves attention
- Falls in love easily
- Needs schedule
- Likes to help others
*Okay, I can agree with several of those (I’ll let you figure out which ones – Ha!).
I found the second one over at Girl Woman Beauty Brains blog, who sources it from the book Lipstick by Jessica Pallingston. That one gives names to the shapes/personalities. In that one, I would be:
The Reclining Chair
The Reclining Chair is most known for their friendliness – they love their friends and making new ones. They can make a dull party a blast. They tend to be unique and are prone to change their ways often. Their lipsticks tend to have higher backs on their work lippies and shorter backs on their going out ones – the higher the back tends to mean the higher the stress.
*Yeah, this one is so me, too.
All that said, there *might* be a smidge of something to this. So, lovelies, take a look at your own lippies and tell me what they say you are – I’d love to know.
